Discussions from the Atlantic Cultural Space Conference - Lea Deschamps

--->New media artist Lea Deschamps co-ordinated and curated the online
e-lounge at the Atlantic Cultural Space Conference, Moncton, New Brunswick
Canada in May 2002. Lea, who has a background in computer animation and a MA
in Art History has invited some of the artists from e-lounge to present
their current research and projects. Presenters are Gair (Scotland); Randy
Knott and Ron Gervais - I am static (Canada); Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel
Dugas -Wireless technology (Canada); Saoirse Higgins currently doing
research in the computing culture group of MIT media lab, (Ireland-USA); and
Clemente Padin - Mail art, Poetry and artivism (Uruguay).
Although distinct in their respective processes and mediation of technology
and physicality, they converge in their exploration of social interstices
and nodes evocative of 'relational esthetics' (Bourriaud). These artists
will help implode binarisms such as periphery-center, proximity-distance,
authorship-spectatorship, original-mimetic.
