"Cultural researchers Sue Mark and Bruce Douglas, aka marksearch, recently completed a month-long adventure in the Black Belt region of the rural South.† Through an unconventional form of ecotourism, marksearch endeavored to explore the local history, current concerns, and sense of community of the residents of one small city:† York (population:† 3,000).† As the CAlabama Peddlers, marksearch, on tandem bike, covered over two hundred miles in Sumter County, Alabama.† GPS routes, video, images and text of this amazing journey can all be found on their site.

marksearch is an independent artistic cultural research team that has collaborated on community-based art projects since 2000. Their mission is to create interactive projects that invite people to reflect upon their local communities, consider healthy alternatives to driving, and increase awareness of the natural environment within the urban fabric."

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
