I work mainly with glitches and corrupted video files or analog signals.
The keynotes / lead performer lineup for the conference Remote Encounters: Connecting bodies, collapsing spaces and temporal ubiquity in networked performance has now been confirmed. We are proud to welcome:Keynote:Jo-Anne Green from Turbulence (http://turbulence.org/) and Networked Performance (http://turbulence.org/blog/)Marc Garrett from Furtherfield (http://www.furtherfield.org/)Lead performer:Annie Abrahams (http://www.bram.org/)Our open call for papers and performances continues until 4pm (GMT), Friday 31/08/12. Please find details included below.:: Call for papers and performances ::Contributions are invited from practitioners and academics for papers and performances that contextualise current networked performance themes and issues both historically and across the spectrum of different types of networks, explore the wealth of performance opportunities offered by the internet and give a sample of future directions for networked performance.The full call can be found online at:http://remote-encounters.tumblr.com/
Remote Encounters, a two-day international conference with performance evening, aims to explore the use of networks as a means to enhance or create a wide variety of performance arts. How do networks as a site for performance provide opportunities for us as artists and performers? In particular how can we remotely collaborate, merge geographically separate places and times, reconfigure the space of performance and the relationship between artist and audience?

The Treachery of Digital Art. A good place to start a discussion about digital art
Members, I have now formally forwarded the petition on censorship to Artreview.com as an email (below). If no response is received I will also forward the petition by post. Hopefully we will have a positive respond soon.
Dear Artreview.com As a representative of a number of members of the artreview community, subscribers to the magazine and users of the website, I would like to draw your attention to a petition objecting to the censorship of our art dictated by your ISP as stated in your community announcement of the 6th of September 2011. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/artreview-isp-censorship/ We feel that this is yet another example of creative expression suppressed by the rules and regulations of corporate institutions and does not reflect or demonstrate understanding of the long traditions, histories and well established thematic and theoretic concerns of art. Nudity in art has, is and will continue to be a subject matter of significant importance which reflects many of the concerns of the human condition. We feel that it is poor form that you, a well established contemporary art magazine who itself has supported cutting edge and sometimes controversial art are allowing your provider to dictate what is 'acceptable' art and surprised that you have not considered how this issue might be dealt with as your online community grew. We understand that you have a contractual relationship with your ISP who regulate use of its servers and will be unlikely to effect change of their policies and so request that you consider changing your ISP to a more art community friendly provider rather than censor and possibly stunt what is a blossoming community. In addition we request a statement from Artreview.com confirming how this issue is being resolved and as indication of support for artists' rights, your community members, to choose their modes of expression. We hope that this petition will be seen by you as it is intended, an indication of concern on your community members part and that you will protect your constituency. Sincerely Garrett Lynch
