CGeomap    

Write with Locative Media in the public space

We are a international network of professionals, we know how to create locative content in the field of art, history, cinema, documentary, literature and ecology. We have a long history in creating walks, sound maps and locative games. We know the importance of creating and geolocating content that helps us to connect better with the public space, with our history, our roots. Over the years and projects, we have created the html5 based tool CGeomap, locative media editor to facilitate the creation of content and access to locative experiences from any smartphone web browser.

Creating with CGeomap

We use CGeomap to teach locative media and create outdoors experiences during online courses and workshops in collaboration with artists, cultural institutions and universities. We also facilitate individual user accounts for creators who want to build and distribute original web-apps with CGeomap. Getting access to the editor has a cost, check the resources page for more information. We invite everyone to participate in the free collaborative projects we organize if you want to know the network and discover the potentials of locative media. If you want to know more about our online courses, please visit our website Supercluster.eu.

Collaborative projects

ERYTHRO’POÏESIE - the Krar Phone

Azmari project

As a plea for the cause of refugees, for inclusion in the face of racism and as a means of shedding light on an essential part of our contemporary history, the digital and poietic device Krar Phone tries to show how much the presence of "the foreigner who comes" Is a chance for all. The word Azmari designates the Habesha (Abyssinian) storytelling poets. The root Ge‘ez azämärä, means to appeal, to witness. They comment on contemporary history and summon their roots. A project by the Gigacircus french Arts Collective in collaboration with the eritrean musicians and singers.
