RSS Feeds for Protest

“Artists and activists from The Screensavers group are organising a multimedia protest between users in New York and Europe during the RNC through an interactive Web-based art project. Using RSS feeds of blog text, video clips, audio samples and photos from a mix of Web sites, the artists use a software they’ve developed that allows multiple users to post images, sounds and text within a shared real-time environment. The Screensavers can then manipulate what images pop up and in what order and type in text that appears over the images that appear on a screen mounted on the roof of a truck. ”
