Join ecoarttech at Bushwick Open Studios for a wilderness excursion through Bushwick’s pristine industrial landscape! Visit the basecamp.exe installation at 319 scholes to prepare for an Indeterminate Hike through urban wilds. BASECAMP.EXE will be on view at the gallery all weekend.
With their new Indeterminate Hikes+ app, ecoarttech will be leading impromptu hikes throughout the weekend, departing from the gallery, as well as scheduled hikes at the following times:
Friday, June 1, 7pm
Saturday, June 2, 2pm, 4pm, and 7pm
Sunday, BASECAMP.EXE on view & self directed hikes, 12-7pm
Indeterminate Hikes+ is a mobile phone app that transforms everyday landscapes into sites of bio-cultural diversity and wild happenings, and the bascamp.exe installation psychically prepares hikers for IH+ wilderness excursions. Most of us use our smartphones as instruments of rapid communication and consumerism. IH+ reappropriates this technology as a tool of environmental imagination and meditative wonder, renewing awareness of the places we inhabit and slowing us down at the same time. The app imports the experience of wilderness into virtually any place accessible by Google Maps, encouraging its participants to treat these locales as spaces worthy of the attention usually accorded only to nature, such as canyons and waterfalls.
