GoogleMaps

The GoogleMaps performance examines a contemporary definition of home in our digital culture and utilizes mobile technology with web mapping to open a dialog between the audience and musicians.  Upon entering the performance venue, the audience is asked to download the 01x mobile app and input the place they consider home, as well as three words that signify their definition of home.  During the performance Google Earth zooms into each musicians home address ending with a street view of that location followed by childhood memories.  A world map displays the home addresses of the audience and musicians to illustrate the diversity of location converging to a common shared live concert experience, ending with the collective descriptions of home.
