Participating in the Toffie Pop Culture Festival in Cape Town (ZA) we as team Netherlands (students of the Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam) built an installation for pirate-trading, based on the seafaring and trading histoy of the Netherlands and South Africa. The installation consisted of USB sticks, filled with pirate design resources, buoyage, ropes and weigths. The audience could exchange data using the USB sticks and so be part of the pirate-trading.

The first Dutch settlers were sent to the Cape to establish a halfway station to provide fresh water, vegetables, and meat for passing ships traveling to and from Asia. The settlers brought with them trade from Europe and bartered with the locals for their sheep and cattle. As such, the Cape has been instrumental as a point for exchange between the Netherlands and South Africa for centuries. The Dutch delegation’s Pier to Pier project aims to re-establish a relation of exchange by trading design resources from the Old World. Bring your laptops, lower the digital cargo and enjoy free-trade from our pirate-ships.

Survival Of The Unfittest

Selection from „Survival of the Unfittest“, i.c.w. Noor van Eekelen

In a time when technology is having more and more of a commanding influence on our values, we launch the platform Community of the Unfittest. It consists of a growing collection of instructions on how to critically engage with existing recording and observation networks. This project was developed during the Sandberg@Mediafonds 2011 master class WirelessStories: New Media in Public Space.
