Glowlab presents:

Conflux 2006

Glowlab announces the third annual Conflux festival for contemporary

psychogeography, the investigation of everyday urban life through

emerging artistic, technological and social practice.

Brooklyn-based arts lab Glowlab announces Conflux 2006, the NYC

festival where international artists, technologists, urban

adventurers and the public put investigations of everyday urban life

into practice on the streets. At Conflux, the city becomes a

playground, a nomadic laboratory and a space for the development of

creative communities. Events over the course of four days include

experimental walking, biking and public-transport tours; street games

and tech workshops; a film/video series; and mobile broadcasts,

performances, situations and installations.

Conflux is a hub for contemporary psychogeography, the exploration of

the physical and psychological landscape of cities. The Village Voice

has described Conflux as a unorthodox urban investigators…making fresh, if underground,  contributions to pedestrian life in New York City, and upping the

ante on today's fight for the soul of high-density metropolises."[1]

Conflux 2006 will feature a full program of events from Thursday

through Sunday, with projects from over 80 artists from across the US

and countries including Canada, UK, Spain, Germany, Finland, Sweden

and Australia.
