FLOATING POINTS: Locative Media, Perspective, Flight and the International Space Station

GLOBAL VS. LOCAL: The Art of Translocality

 

EWA WOJTOWICZ

 

"The global village, the network society - these are the essentials of the current net culture and its discourse. The Internet-based culture has a global impact although its origin is blurred. Is it local? Are there any tendencies of locality visible in the world of net art?" Ewa Wojtowicz, theoretician/historian of art & culture and new media, examines the net art practice from the perspective of locality and globalisation.

TECHNOLOGY AS IF

 

ANNIKA OLOFSDOTTER BERGSTRÖM

 

"I am interested in the kind of identity computer technology can give us when it acts like a prosthesis on our bodies." Annika Olofsondotter Bergström discusses three New Media performances in which all use technology as body's extension: the works discussed are Troika Ranch's "Future of memory", Stelarc's "Ping Body" and Laetitia Sonami's "Lady’s Glove"

"WHERE ARE YOU FROM?": The Networked Sphere

 

PAT BADANI

 

"'Where are you from?' synthesises many of my explorations regarding translocality, the hybridisation of media, and the convergence of technological and social space in the urban environment." Interviews in 6 cities (Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Mexico City, Buenos Aires and Paris) are compiled in Pat Badani's net art project "Where Are You From" to reveal the dynamics between the notions "place" and "belonging."
