The audio-visual content performed and created by numerous people at several distant locations arrived simultaneously in Vienna and created a highly impressive overall experience and magic moments for all parties involved - also for viewers who watched the show via live-stream.
MACBA is a public institution, open to the public and with educational vocation, which works to promote art and contemporary cultural practices both nationally and internationally, to provide a multiplicity of visions and to generate critical debates about the world around us.
Consorci de Serveis Universitaris de Catalunya (CSUC) supports cooperation and resource sharing to make the university and research system more efficient. The consortium is integrated by Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan Government) and ten Catalan universities. CSUC manages the Catalan research and education network, Anella Científica, which connects up to 85 institutions. It offers high-speed connections with native IPv4 and IPv6, dedicated circuits and advanced services.

SAGElab is a common laboratory of CESNET, the Faculty of Information Technologies and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Czech Technical University. The goal of the laboratory is to support education and research in network and visualization technologies, development of new kinds of applications and experimental work in these areas. SAGElab is also used for artistic performances using the high quality and low latency audio&video transmission systems developed by CESNET.
The CESNET Association was founded by Czech universities and the Czech Academy of Sciences in 1996. It is engaged in research and development in information and communication technologies and builds and develops the CESNET national e-infrastructure for research and education (NREN of Czech Republic).
One of the research areas are high quality and low latency audio&video transmissions. CESNET developed software and hardware solutions to support i.e cultural, medical and cinematography events and workflows. The software solution UltraGrid is used to deliver audiovisual content during the net:art performance.

The Academic and Research Network of Slovenia (ARNES) is a public institute that provides network services to research, educational and cultural organizations, and enables them to establish connections and cooperation with each other and with related organizations abroad.
ARNES builds, maintains and manages infrastructure linking universities, institutes, research laboratories, museums, schools, databases and digital libraries. It offers users the same services as national academic networks in other countries; it cooperates with these networks in European Commission projects to test, develop and introduce new Internet protocols and services. It also provides services that are essential to the operation of the Internet in Slovenia.

Street life and locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
One of the challenges of this project was to integrate other transmission technologies into the technical concept, which was mainly realized via high-speed networks. The target was to open the correspondence between different technologies; finally, to expand the opportunities of the artistic concept and to widen the frame of mobility. With Brian Losch, Grammy-award winning recording engineer and sound designer, we were able to gain a partner who sent us various afternoon impressions of his hometown via his cellphone, connected with Vienna over "Wowza Streaming Engine".
