Bike Box is a participatory locative media project and database created by Sabine Gruffat and Bill Brown. Using open-source software, participants will be able to listen to and contribute geotagged audio that relates or responds to specific locations in Brooklyn, New York: Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and along the Brooklyn waterfront. The audio can take any form, including (but not limited to) sound art, personal anecdotes, field recordings, radical histories, interviews, or audio tours. The audio may be geo-coded for a specific location (i.e. a building or a street corner) or an object (i.e. a public art project or mailbox).
