• UAPD is directed by media artist, Angie Eng in collaboration with New York artist, Jessica Higgins and a collective of student interns. Vietnamese artist, Rich Streitmatter-Tran will lead the RMIT University students in Ho Chi Minh City. The groups conduct actions in public centres highlighting private behavior in public space and the invisible boundaries/filters prompted by mobile technologies and urban invasions of one's public space.

    The UAPD blog is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Peforming Arts, Inc. (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Urban Attractors, Private Distractors was developed in residence at Eyebeam Atelier, New York City.

    The UAPD workshops, public actions and installation are made possible by an Eyebeam artist in residency 2006-07.

    Special Thanks to collaborating artist, Jessica Higgins for her participation in the NYC actions.
