Workshop by Furtherfield.org

SWAMP Splash about in the deluge of information rising up through the 

2 February

12.00 ? 17.00 h.
Location: Netherlands Media Art Institute
Registration via: malka {AT} nimk.nl
Participants will need: laptops with browser, wireless capability

Marc Garrett and Ruth Catlow fram Furtherfield.org will demo 
VisitorsStudio and introduce participants to its (easy-to-use) tool-set 
and features.

Using your own files (bring jpg, mp3, swf, flv under 200k) or harvesting 
files from the net, you can work with others to create and distribute 
mixes and remixes. The day will end with a live online performance by 
all participants.

VisitorsStudio (Furtherfield.org 2003-) is an networked, many to many, 
real-time art project created and distributed live in real-time across 
the Internet. Participants link together at the same time and mix and 
remix audio-visual files. The VisitorsStudio artware is also an 
always-on, open, social space. As they work together, live conversations 
between participants (identified by their moving cursor arrows) become a 
part of the performance- along with comments and heckling from the audience.

Through VisitorsStudio Furtherfield.org explores the ongoing expressive 
and communicative processes of human beings collaborating in new ways in 
this context, as active agents in the production of the cultural landscape.

Furtherfield.org utilizes networked media to create, explore, nurture 
and promote the art that happens when connections are made and knowledge 
is shared--across the boundaries of established art-world institutions 
and their markets, community-focused artistic and activist projects and 
communities of socially-engaged software developers. This is a spectrum 
that engages from the maverick media-art-makers and small collectives of 
cross-specialist practitioners, to projects that critique and change 
dominant hierarchical structures as part of their art process. 
Furtherfield.org is a London-based artist-led organisation founded in 1996.

The proliferation of commercial but free digital sharing activities 
associated with Web2.0, subjects the contemporary networked human-being 
to a deluge of information and expressive culture from all directions, 
not just from on high (through authorized channels for information, news 
and culture) but also rising up through vernacular.
