I had the pleasure to attend to and participate in the NowNet Arts Conference 2019 in the Primary Site: INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE (IACS), STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK, USA. This unique conference brings for the first time artists and scholars working in Telematic and Networked Music and Art together, specially counting on Satellite sites (in California, Berlin, Edinburgh, Ghent, where people can attend with their physical presence and at the same time network and connect with other satellites and remote sites across US, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. This initiative is timely for us to share experiences and explore together the social and environmental purpose of telematic and networked art, and its applications, which contribute clearly to the environmental challenges of travelling between distant locations, and the implications that it has for new forms of communication and encounters through technologies and sound.
I presented the paper “Sensing Place and Presence in an INTIMAL Long-Distance Improvisation.” on behalf of the co-authors Paul Boddie, Cagri Erdem, Eigil Aandahl, Elias Sukken Andersen, Eirik Dahl, Mari Lesteberg, and Alexander Refsum Jensenius. The paper has been recently published in the new Journal of Network Music and Arts, JONMA. https://commons.library.stonybrook.edu/jonma/vol1/iss1/3
Thanks to the organisers Sarah Weaver, Margaret Schedel and Chris Chafe! Looking forward to the next NowNet Arts conference on 2020.
