Digital Networked Arts: Practice in a Connected World
From early experiments in telematic performance using satellites in the 1970s, the first outings for distributed dance and theatre in the 1990s through to current practice in networked performance where performers and audiences alike participate in real-time cross reality events.  Ian will discuss the artistic and technical approaches taken by artists to embrace the opportunities of a world that is increasingly connected due to the availability of ubiquitous computing and network access (even if that connectivity may sometimes be limited or controlled due to social, economic or political reasons).
 
In the second part of the lecture, Ian will provide – amply illustrated with visual material – examples of contemporary networked art and performance practice, including his own work in Studio Biscoe.  Current practice in networked performance crosses the visual and performing arts (dance, theatre, music) and as such should be of interest to students and staff in all disciplines regardless of their technical expertise.
 
The lecture will conclude with time for audience discussion and questions.
