In 2008 tat ort inhabited a flat for a sustained period of two months in the Siedlung an der Ach/Estate on the Ach, located in the small city of Bregenz in Vorarlberg, Austria. The project was the pilot to an open-ended series of self-organized artist residencies, with the aim of looking into the immediate living conditions of segregated, dense and highly conflict-laden social housing estates. This is an account of the theory and practice that formed a strategy to unlock a wealth of information that all too often is neglected by official bodies, governments or other representational organizations. By rendering this tremendous expertise visible, tat ort are able to reveal how a specific apparatus emerges, how to describe or interpret it adequately, and – if necessary – how to foster or reinvigorate its underlying dynamic with the catalysing spirit and playful dexterity of genuine artistic creation.

More about this publication?
- Ubiquity is an international peer reviewed journal for creative and transdisciplinary practitioners interested in technologies, practices and behaviours that have the potential to radically transform human perspectives on the world. "Ubiquity", the ability to be everywhere at the same time, a potential historically attributed to the occult is now a common feature of the average mobile phone. The title refers explicitly to the advent of ubiquitous computing that has been hastened through the consumption of networked digital devices. The journal anticipates the consequences for design and research in a culture where everyone and everything is connected, and will offer a context for visual artists, designers, scientists and writers to consider how Ubiquity is transforming our relationship with the world.
