"ENIAROF is a unique concept for a new form of carnaval mixing the logic of flash mobs, gore, digital arts, classic video games, mashups, karaoke, BBQ, cotton candy, and anything weirdly kaiju-esque on a foggy night that just wants to have fun."
ENIAROF 0.1 descended onto Aix-en-Provence in March 2005, followed by Paris (0.1.1), Marseille (0.1.2), Aix-en-Provence (0.2) in late 2006 and Maribor Sloveniarof (0.3) july 2007.

THE CITY AS AN INSTRUMENT
The call concerns itself with the use of the city as an expressive instrument or place of artistic practice. This may vary from art whose subject is the city to art, which is actually performed in a city. Special attention is given to telematic art practices in which activities within the city bring about changes and responses at another open or closed space.
Interactivity may take place between the open and closed space in equal relationship, but in many projects in this area the activities often take place within the open space, (City Streets, a Park, Parking Lot, Public Building) and "consumed" in the closed space (Movie theater, Gallery, Living Room, Bar, Toilets)
CALL The Digital Art Weeks 2007 invites Artists to submit proposals for open public spaces. We are seeking works that use any form of networking that either connects performers within the space used or connects them in some form between spaces used.
DEADLINE Friday, 2nd March 2007._Notification of acceptance of proposals will be sent out on or before Friday, 2nd April 2007.

USER GENERATED ADS
“1977 Xerox ‘Monks' A monk is asked to duplicate an old manuscript by his superior. Rather than write it out laboriously he heads to a photocopying ship where the Xerox 9200 copies it for him. The head monk believes it is a miracle. By poking fun at monks, this ad encouraged US marketers to take a more irreverent tone.
1984 Apple ‘1984' This classic, Orwell-themed ad introduced the first Macintosh. Directed by Ridley Scott, it portrayed a room of people being brainwashed by Big Brother, before a blonde woman runs in and destroys the screen with a sledgehammer.
1995 Budweiser ‘Frogs' Three frogs begin croaking in a swamp - one says ‘Bud', the second ‘Weis' and the third ‘Er'. Simple but effective, the ad left you in no doubt which brand was being advertised, and the campaign was later expanded with extra animal characters. It became such a hit it was spoofed in The Simpsons.
2000 E*Trade ‘Monkey' Two old men clap along to a tune while they watch a monkey dancing. The punchline - ‘We just wasted two million dollars. What are you doing with your money?' The ad was the most recalled for its year, despite having the lowest production cost.” - Via brandrepublic.com
