Exploring Networked Space Workshop
6.09.2007 by Atle Barcley

Workshop with Michelle Teran
Two one-day workshops Sunday 16th and Tuesday 18th of September, 10 to 16 both days.
The workshop is free.
Limited number of participations, please request participation at urban_interface@anart.no and state which day you want to participate.

This workshop will explore and challenge one’s relation to the urban topologies of space and place. The perceptions and sensations of everyday life, situated in contemporary urban experience is inclusive of private and public, enclosed and open space as well as the data saturated space of networked connectivity. ‘Exploring Networked Space’ is intended to facilitate and challenge conceptions of and distinctions between space, place and non-place both through theoretical lecture and discussion and direct urban exploration.

In this workshop we will examine the spaces of embodiment and how they are overlaid with the media space of ‘flows’. Participants will look at these social, political, philosophical and artistic relationships from the perspectives of objects, actions, rituals and movement. After the theory we will head out into onto the street - locating, examining and documenting some of these relationships within the city itself. We will use a video scanner, Gaussmeter, stumbling software and our own visual powers of perception to collaboratively create a three channel video piece to be viewed at the end of the day.

Breif workshop schedule:
- a theoretical lecture
- introduction to the equipment
- a walk around the city, recording subjective views (including the surveillance)
- return to the studio and review the material.
