Pachube is a Web-based system that provides open access for both inputting and sharing data from sensors observing various things and environments throughout the world. Indoors or outdoors, individuals or organizations: anyone can release data on Pachube and anyone is welcome to use the data there as the raw material to produce new outputs or creations. Via Pachube, environmental data from somewhere else on earth might influence right here, and the data from here might influence somewhere else. Pachube, aligned with the Open Source and DIY movements in hardware and software, is fostering a network of global relationships.
In "Mission G," data fed out via Pachube will be presented visually in an installation designed by M.K.I. The changes in environmental data from three regions, acquired via Pachube, are converted into the upward and downward motion of three lights suspended in the exhibition space. Through this structure, not only does the brightness of the space change. Sensors imbedded in chairs measure the light level and feed those data back into Pachube. Through this recurring data cycle, Pachube data turn, via this space, into new data inputs for Pachube.

The Pachube Team Profile Pachube is a system founded by Usman HAQUE (born in 1971; resides in London), an internationally active architect whose specialities include reactive environments, interactive installations, and digital interfaces and devices, and developed by Haque Design + Research. The founding team also included Chris BURMAN, HASEGAWA Ai, Chris LEUNG, and Sam MULUBE. The number of people cooperating in the development of Pachube continues to grow. http://www.pachube.com/ M.K.I. Profile This team of artists was formed for "Mission G." MORI Koichiro (born in 1983) graduated from the Design Course in the Graduate Program at Tama Art University in 2009. He does research on the structures visible in paintings and other visual media, through perception and calculation. KASHIMADA Tomoya (born in 1982) graduated from the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS) with a specialization in media expression. His research addresses the relationship between human beings and information from the aspect of ubiquitous computing. ISE Naoki (born in 1986) is presently in his first year of the Design Course in the Graduate Program at Tama Art University. He creates site-specific installations using his own software.
