Art of the Networked Practice | Online Symposium
I will be spaking at this international gathering exploring emergent
forms of networked research, artistic production, and teaching in the
arts. Intended as a global and inclusive gathering, without
registration fees, the symposium unites local and remote speakers and
audiences via Web-conferencing from around the world to discuss a range
of topics, including: distributed teaching and studio models,
collective research, peer-to-peer cultural production, networked
performance, big data cultural analytics, and a broad range of issues
in Internet art & culture.
Bundanon Trust Artist In Residence
my residency at Bundanon enables research and writing time for my first
novel Attachment. This highly
intimate memoir deals with issues of identity, loss and grief brought
about by the traumatic separation at birth from my mother and my
subsequent adoption, then the removal of my only child when I was
15, also through forced adoption.
