Focusing on the itinerant pop up artwork by media archeologist Rachel Hanlon called HELLO MACHINECONNECTED matches the engaging and inspiring installation with a series of artscience workshops gravitating around the interactions and communication between humans to humans and humans to machines. The old fashioned landline telephone rings from time to time...if you answer the call you will talk to someone from another HELLO MACHINE in the world!

The two telephones will be located at multiple sites: Ca' Foscari CFZ - Cultural Flow Zone, the Ca' Foscari scientific campus the new M9 museum, Fondazione Querini Stampalia and La Biennale di Venezia (during the Carnival).

Telephones by Rachel Hanlon are located in Australia, USA, Japan, Ireland and Austria. The artwork is currently hosted also by Science Gallery Dublin's INTIMACY

CONNECTED is supported by DVRI - District of Venetian Research and Innovation.

CONNECTED will open on Jan. 17 and close on April 7
