Variations VII: FishNet

"Lawrence L Johnson is an artist in various media, mostly time-based. David Miller has been a member of the Mobius Artists Group since 1980. Margaret Bellafiore uses personal imagery to create installation and performance. Trombone explorer Tom Plsek has been stretching trombones and our concepts of them for years. Mobius (est. 1977) is a non-profit, artist-run organization, whose mission is to generate, shape and test experimental art. In Variations VII: FishNet the primary component is an autonomous network space in which the listener/visitor will 'fish' among a myriad of live audio/visual internet feeds. These will include sources such as air traffic controllers, police and fire departments, horse races, and webcams. The project will also make use of live, distributed input from cell phones. The outcome will be an environment built by the team of artists, but freely explored by visitors to the virtual and live sites. The artists will provide the resources for a distributed audience to create its own experience of synchronicity. FishNet is inspired by John Cage's Variations VII, a pioneering 'art and engineering' performance event from 1966." -- From Turbulence
