Week 3: January 28 - February 3 (Adobe Connect)
Our first session in Adobe Connect will offer an opportunity to experience
the concept of the third space, conducted in the medium itself: a shared electronic space with remote participants connected via the network.
We will explore the psychological and conceptual dimensions of the third space, notions of distributed presence, the dissolution of the object, disembodiment, the immaterial, and the intimacy of the telematic embrace. We will discuss how performance draws from the collective experience of the Network, live media, remote location, mobility, transformations of geographical perception in time and space, and how the third space lends itself to artistic realization. A review of historical third space projects: networked art, satellite broadcasts, net.art, leading to more contemporary works of cyber / networked performance art.
