hacklab report

17-03-2006 02:45

For years, months, days, we networks and communities of individuals have been exchanging knowledge, designing worlds, experimenting with gizmos and devices. We are the expression of a thousand thoughts, we are migrants across the City and the Net; we are searching for a place where our commonalities and practices can open up space-time discontinuities.

We want to hack reality, and we need a lab to reassemble its basic elements. In a metropolis scared by unreal securities and too real fears, we yearn to give birth to a site of full of imageries made flesh, of bytes resurrecting metal. Our collective mind is replete with digital/analog technology, info-communication, knowledge-sharing, meme-spreading, participation-catalysis, and much much more.

The four cardinal points are no longer sufficient coordinates. As Mars is closer to Earth than ever in history, there is no better time for a new reticular constellation, for a new geometry of relations that can freely recompile low-entropy bioware, stunning and getting stunned by vivid special effects and lively affects.

Dalston Theatre court case- freedom of expression? hmmm

14-03-2006 02:06

The occupants of the buildings alongside Dalston Theatre, 4-14 Dalston Lane E9, went to Shoreditch Court this Monday morning. With very little hope for a decision which would allow them to bide more time before the plans go ahead for the demolition of the theatre, the occupants decided the best approach was to make their own voices, along with the people of Hackney that have been supporting the occupation continuously, heard in the most honest and direct way possible.
Unfortunately, much time was taken up by the statement of the other defendent, and the judge did not allow time for the statement below to be read.
