Brighton Video Map - Phoenix Gallery and Alvaro Collar art project

The Brighton Video Art Mapping project ('VAM Brighton') aims to create a living map, 'an online interactive video-artistic map of Brighton that is easily viewable and easy for anyone to contribute to and participate in.'

Using Google Maps and YouTube, Spanish video artist Alvaro Collar will lead the VAM Brighton project and will be in residence at the Phoenix Gallery Brighton during the months May, June and July, editing and uploading videos to the map.

Video, YouTube, Google Maps all combined in a 'crowd-sourced' art installation that can also double-up as an online hub accessible by anyone - the project specifically targets artists, young people and businesses within the tourist industry. VAM Brighton is a nice example of how technology and social tools continue to change the cultural landscape.

There is also a Video Art Mapping blog here.
