AIR Live in NYC and San Francisco March-April 2008
AIR will be on exhibit simultaneously on the east and west coast of the US in March and April of 2008. How does the pollution compare in the city that never sleeps vs. the city by the bay? Are you rooting for the left coast or right coast? Join the experiment if you are in either city during those months by visiting either Eyebeam in NYC or Southern Exposure in SF.

Launch and Release Party, 5-7pm
Come celebrate the launch of AIR at this "release party." Our first carriers will take to the streets with the devices and set the network (and data visualization...) in motion. Come test drive a device or burn your daily dose of coal with us. Why let the electric companies have all the fun?

The party is from 5-7 pm at the AIR Headquaters, 125 Maiden Lane (map).

Beta Testing Workshop, 12-4pm

Be one of the first to use an AIR device! Preemptive Media on June 24 at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center in New York City beta tested the AIR devices. During this workshop we gave a brief overview of our production process and background research. Participants then helped us to test the devices and data visualization application. As a group we also brainstormed strategies for user interaction and participation for the project launch in September 2006.
