Artist Statement:


    Project PlaceSite introduces a new way of using wireless networks – to create digital community services by, for and about people who are together in the same physical place. PlaceSite is an open platform for a new breed of Web service tied intimately to physical places. It lets people share information locally, apart from the global Web. PlaceSite is built upon what already exists — users don’t need to install new software or purchase new hardware. It also enables location-based services without relying on participation by cellular carriers or Internet service providers.
