I-TASC FOR THE INTERNATIONAL POLAR YEAR

I-TASC FOR THE INTERNATIONAL POLAR YEAR

Friday March 30, 2007 : I-TASC settles for two years at Espace Mendes-France, Poitiers, France

I-TASC is a decentralized network of individuals and organisations working collaboratively in the fields of art, engineering, science and technology on interdisciplinary development and tactical deployment of renewable energy, waste recycling systems, sustainable architecture and open-format, open-source media. I-TASC is a lichen-like structure sharing and integrating local knowledge, resources and skills across six continents in order to symbiotically engage with common issues concerning the air, ocean, earth and space.

The science centre Espace Mendes-France and Ellipse join the I-TASC project to organize a series of events during the 2007-2008 International Polar Year. An I-TASC terminal will be installed in the Espace Mendes-France for the duration of IPY. It will provide information in real time on the activities of the I-TASC project and display environmental data collected by the Automatic Weather station deployed, by I-TASC since winter 2007, near the South-African base of
SANAE in the Dronning Maud Land region of the Antarctic.
