Great big thanks to the many staycationers who visited the show!
For last but not least many thanks to the Tolhuistuin for hosting Near Enough?!
This is the first show of the 3rd edition of the “legendary” digital biennale of digital art in your city. In 2018, apart from Wawa, this independent idea generated in Wrocław, conquers other European cities like Gol in Norway, Amsterdam, Valencia … we also have plans for Berlin and Athens.
You cant miss it!
Grab your smartphone or tablet and prepare yourself for the stream of works made by dozens of Polish and foreign artists operating in the field of digital art based on web browsers.
This Saturday go outside ! You can watch #nfcdab shows individually as well as
with a group of friends. The Warsaw edition is hosted by V9 and ADA. But we go many steps further – during the festival the gallery will also outdoor. The map will lead you to art pieces.
YOUR PHONE IS A FRAME FOR PRESENTED WORKS !!!
We will provide you with the most amazing and unconventional examples sent to our biennials from the endless areas of the Internet. You will see net-art, post-conceptual digital art, glitch art, pseudo “viral” applications, independent music, strange and rare video clips, etc.
All works will be available using mobile devices through QR codes, WiFi routers or RIFID / NFC chips.
Before starting the artistic trip, approach ADY (Puławska 37 and V9 Gallery), where you will get a map with all useful information. The exhibition will take the form of a quasi urban game. You will win when you find works in the original circumstances of nature around.
Prepare your mobile device in advance:
1. Check if you have the best QR code reading app suitable for your phone type.
2. Enter the communication settings and check if you have access to read NFC / RIFID tags and enable them.
3. In the exhibition area you can also connect to our special WiFi routers, thanks to which you will be able to download works prepared by artists for the shows.
4. Search for places with the Biennale logo attached – ART is waiting for you there. A map will lead you to them.
5. Check if you can install applications from unknown sources.
*) In case of any doubts and questions please go to Dominik Podsiadły, originator of # nfcdab, and to a team of co-organizers with V9 and ADA. Dominik will help you to grasp technical and other issues.
If you want to talk or share your impressions – Dominik is happy to talk with you.
WE INVITE YOU ON SATURDAY 23/06/2018 TO ADA AND V9 AT UL.PUŁAWSKA 37 AND TO THE PARK near around

Lawn Enforcement is a section of the #nfcdab proposed and organized by BrowserBased to cheer on and partake in Dominik Podsiadly’s 2nd iteration of #nfcdab, a DIY biennale. Dominik P. is an active presence on the scene and has been a member of BrowserBased on Facebook. But cooperations with Mr. P. also go way further than Facebook and take place IRL, too. (See: NFC biennales, Wroclaw; ADAF 2015, Athens; Yami-Ichi, Amsterdam and Bring Your Own B*, Amsterdam).
At the core of the DIY biennales are NFC and QR techs that provide and establish, as a figure of speech, access points in versatile contexts of urban settings such as vacant plots, forking paths in parks and commuter trams. The temporary as well as independent character of these biennales preserve and fertilize much valued informal channels for participating artists and audiences.
The planter signs we chose because they are just as easy to place as to take away and re-enforce an important aspect, in the #nfcdabs, of whimsy!

Athens, Greece. Ever since the crisis set in, an exploding body of graffiti, marker writings, flyers and stickers has been crawling allover the city’s surfaces. One of the highly frequented places, as we found, is the eye-catching number of pay-phone booths left standing regardless of being defunct or vandalized. As telephony hops onto private mobile networks we observe how the booths recycled by the use of scratch, paste and pen. Parts of the withering public phone infrastructure become quizzical nodes of these new anarchic networks.
In their freshly assigned role, the phone−booths re−enter the city’s communication channels. They quote, from URLs of conspiracy theory videos to tags by local hooligans, all mingling with signs indecipherable (for most readers), with scrawls and smudges, and private messages, from romantic confessions to sexual services offered with names and mobile phone numbers. 69 is the prefix for commercial mobile networks in Greece which all work with real name bound accounts.
To get a closer look at these flows of messages, we documented phone−booths in various parts of the city. The result is a series of over 800 photographs, which, by their sheer number, asked for some structure to be accessible. Using keywords, we arranged them by categories, into galleries at geolocations on openstreetmaps. We have come to regard most of the ones of sexual nature as advertisements for the simple reason of the frequency of their re−occurrence and frequency of updates allover the city. A frequency that even a most frantic wrath would fall short of to write, if the motivation was of a personal nature
Let’s pause for the dilemma of motivations here: Are they indeed advertisements or are they meant to be outing people with their names and numbers, in a form of hate speech?
Since the numbers are mostly coupled to male names, we looked at legal aspects of male prostitution. There are contradictions concerning male sexwork in Greek law which make the legality of male sexwork unclear. This may very well contribute to the reasons for this thread of handwritten phenomena, next to the difficult to imagine levels of poverty and exposedness. http://www2.keelpno.gr/blog/?p=4934&lang=en
69.numbers.suck presents the documentation and our findings as offline maps. To protect the writers and their characters as best as we could we do not expose it online as a Google map gallery and we took the following steps.
We present the 69 database only offline to lessen exposure to data mining or the scope of doxing. We serve 69.numbers.suck, locally, from an encrypted and modified wifi router that is toned down in range to limit wifi reception to the exhibition area.
To have a recourse to the rule of law, even if weak, we copyrighted the database and the images to discourage unwanted reuse. The landing page also asks all visitors to observe the issue.
The request reads: “69.numbers.suck” is presented as an offline collection to keep a measure of protection from data crunchers. BrowserBased Group kindly requests you to refrain from reproducing and putting online any of this material! Further, the image files, the database and the resulting tracks are there for the sole purpose of consideration. Any data extraction, disclosure, dissemination or copying of content is prohibited without the authors’ prior consent!
69.numbers.suck is a subjective overview and in no way is it all encompassing.
