:: Network - 20/11/07 ::

A network is any system of interconnected points / locations, nodes, which become greater, augmented, than when in isolation.  While emphasis is most often placed on the nodes, it is the connections / links / lines / flows, the spaces between, the hinterland of the network, and their resulting mesh / matrix, which provides the site, means and context for the networks ability to transfer and transform.  Similarly art can be thought of as a space in-between:

“The work of art occupies a pivotal point between two sets of behaviour, the artist’s and the spectator’s.  It is essentially a matrix, the substance between.  It exists nether for itself nor by itself.” (Ascott, R. 2003, Telematic Embrace)

On November 20th Open Ear  will host an event curated by Garrett Lynch ( entitled Network which will present performances on this theme.  Sound and visual artists / groups working with networks as a thematic or technical element to their work within live performance contexts will contribute to the event.  Performances will include the use of networks to dynamically generate or enhance performance, to collaboratively create a performance through a network, to discuss the nature of networks and their impact on society etc.  All performances will be audio or visual works (including any combination therein) of up to 30 minutes duration each.  The line-up for the evening will be as follows:

Paul Adams (
John Wild: Invisible Geographies 50MHz-6000MHz - The Conduit (
Matt Wright (
Pascal Bouchet Asselah: In the night, the light (Dans la nuit, la lumière) (
Garrett Lynch (
