Environment 2.0 was initiated in 2006 and publicly launched at Futuresonic 2007 during May 2007 in Manchester UK with a conference event and a commissioned artwork from LoVid.
A conference event publicly launching Environment 2.0 introduced by Drew Hemment.
Eric Paulos from Intel Research explores in Participatory Urbanism how mobile phones can be equipped with new "super-senses" so that you and I can join together to monitor environmental change. Stef van Dongen unveils a masterplan to take eco-clubbing to the world, including an electricity-generating dancefloor, whereby the more people dance, the more energy they produce. An email has been circulating about the carbon footprint of avatars in the Second Life virtual world. Shaun Fensom, Chair of Manchester Digital and founder of Poptel, will unpick such half truths and question "how green is the internet".
An art project in which the artists LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus) sent cardboard cut out avatars of themselves instead of flying from New York. In an installation in Manchester, flat 2D abstract video is viewed through a lo-fi binocular tube constructed from cardboard, while LoVid's Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus are themselves represented by life-size cardboard cut-outs covered in printed colour scans of the artists dressed in VideoWear. Commissioned by Futuresonic, curated by Drew Hemment.
