VisitorsStudio wins the Grand Prize - netarts.org 2009
Netarts.org (aka Art on the Net) run by the Art on the Net steering
committee and the Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts.
VisitorsStudio is a real-time, multi-user, online arena for creative
'many to many' dialogue, interviews, networked performance and
collaborative polemic. Through simple and accessible facilities, the
VisitorsStudio web-based interface allows users to upload, manipulate
and collage their own audio-visual files with others', to remix existing
media. Providing a platform for the exploration of collective creativity
for both emergent and established artists from a diverse array of
geographical locations and social contexts. Designed so anyone in the
world can access it from a 56k modem. Participants upload sound files
and still/moving images (jpg, png, mp3, flv, swf) to a shared database,
mixing and responding to each other's compositions in real-time.
Individuals can also chat with each other and are located in the
interface by their own dancing-cursors.

critical engagement with practices in art and technology people are

societies. Providing platforms for creating, viewing, discussing and
learning about experimental practices at the intersections of art,
