Bienenstock is an ongoing artistic research experiment for collecting and contextualizing video content from people during live happenings. In the broadest sense it is a cross-media system for crowd-sourced video documentation. Bienenstock is the German word for beehive, and this serves as the central metaphor: like in a society of bees, registered participants swarm out, capture footage of an event from a multitude of perspectives and return it (to the hive) to be ingested into the collective pool.

The system was first developed for and presented at the Ars Electronica Festival 2013 as part of a collaboration between Ars Electronica and Queensland University of Technology (QUT). For this year’s festival the project will be taken to a new level with many more cameras and participants as well as increased platforms for mobile content delivery. Focused on the topic of change, the festival utilizes the city of Linz as the main stage of the entire event. As a result, the Bienenstock will serve the double purpose of documenting the live happening while also capturing the unique landscape of the city in which the festival is taking place. The main installation and info point is located inside the Bus on Spittelwiesse. Here you can also collect and drop off your camera. For further info and mobile content delivery instructions visit:
