Piazzetta Vienna & Graz

In Austria, Piazzettas were founded in Vienna and Graz. They mostly produced a collaborative program in Piazza virtuale. These two Piazettas were arranged by the media art collectives Pyramedia and ZERO.net respectively. On the one hand, they each broadcast computer graphics, photographs, still images and computer animations in a split screen. On the other hand, they used signals from the callers‘ phones to control synthesizers in Kassel in order to create a musical composition. The latter was later rebroadcast in the show „Kunstradio“ on Austria’s national public radio.
