Apartment Projects aim had been to collectively create and produce
different voices in exhibitions based on workshops. These workshops include
people who have all formulated their own languages within their own fields.
Project Free Fall, in this point, is an attempt to create a different
experience, open up a new path in these workshops, namely to create a new
language/practice by way of changing the structure and working out of
workshops by the means of new technological developments and digital
To this end, Apartment Project formed the platform of
freefall-apartment.blogspot.com , which will work as a virtual workshop
place for the artists where they can share their productions without the
necessity of coming together in the same physical working/production place.
With a 15 days of virtual workshop process, this project shelters the
documentation of the everyday life practice, writings, images, sounds,
texts and the life-effecting dynamics of each artist. It is the
falling of individual memories of artists into this platform by
following up each other that draws the conceptual framework of Free
Fall which is in effect a kind of online personal sketch book or diary.
These interactively fallen materials came together in this virtual platform
until the end of the workshop process (15.03.2010) as a serial of works in
which artists interact with and response the works of each other.

Some guerrilla gardeners carry out their actions at night, in relative secrecy, to sow and tend a new vegetable patch or flower garden. Some garden at more visible hours to be seen by their community. It has grown into a form of proactive activism or pro-activism.” (from Wikipedia)

Kibla has gradually transformed one of its oldest festivals from a purely technological festival into a festival of arts and education domain. Transforming Kiblix festival will continue and we intend to establish it into one of the most relevant arts festivals in following years, based on open source solutions, and place it on the European and global map. Open Source for the visitors, campaigns, performances and installations, interactive events, robots, software art, art hardware, wireless systems, security and control are just some of the backgrounds of art, which raises the issues of human freedom, freedom of speech and expression, free flow of information and knowledge, free exchange of data and is searching for answers instead of all those who are closing their systems and are locking themselves in digital fortress, under the disguise of copyright protection – and in such different environments and ways – limiting all mentioned above, in most of most cases, banal reasons to earn more profit, but often from sheer desire to control and manipulate society by the masses.More Information

‘New Maps of Time’ is a workshop about sound and project about mapping spaces (architectural and natural) using sound sound as a means to understand our presence within these spaces. It is about exploring subjectivity and territory through sound, bridging acoustic processes with digital communication… The project process works with the basic understanding that artistic creativity can be a ritual by which we live out and share the subjectivity of our own experiences. This inherent subjectivity must be understood not only as an intellectual notion but through means of participatory activityon different levels of personal, collaborative (between artists) and contextual actions (interventions in a space).More Information

AVAMAA a multi-purpose, cross-discipline, mixed-media context-specific artistic and social event of creative interventions. AVAMAA encourages the exchange of ideas and the realization of short term artistic projects within a 6 day event. The concept of AVAMAA builds on the experiences of the previous MoKS symposium (known as PostsovkhoZ, that ran from 2001-2006), yet strives to adapt to the changing conditions in both the global and local context.
