What we would really like to hear about right now is
the kinds of
remote practices that you have already done. Eg. Caro's Picnic,
Upstage, Phil's Earthworks Zita and Adam's re-mote.... and all the
others that I'm sure are out there.
I will be constructing a kind of live-database-wiki where we can make
a record/timeline/history of the kinds of activities that NZers have
already done in this field. As well as be a documentation of our
participation in electrosmog.
First though it would be great to share some examples of how we
already operate within the boundaries of remote immobility, and some
example of the projects you have done previously...
This sounds great.
Don't know if this is the kind of thing you're after (i.e. it's not
performance art), but... I worked on a project in 1995 and 96 with
designer/artist/programmer Erik Loyer in LA, mostly via text chat. (We
made an interactive piece on NZ game history, "Cast-offs from the Golden
Age".) We worked this way intensively (on a daily basis) for a period
of about 4 months, I guess. It was a great way to work. It was
intimate and Erik was a remarkable collaborator -- very forthcoming with
responses to my queries etc, more so than I would have hoped of a
colleague who was just up the hall. And the time difference worked
wholly to our advantage -- eg. by the time I logged on in the morning,
he'd have ironed out the bugs I'd advised him of the night before.
