The ‘Locating Grid Technologies’ workshops (June-October 2006) explored fragmentations of space-time in networked environments by: using the communications grid as a telematic performance environment and as a dissemination tool for other performance forms; using a range of software interfaces within communications grid events to record, annotate and retrieve ‘meetings’; using Semantic Web tools to query that audio-visual archive in such a way as to facilitate its creative re-use on the fly in performance, in programmed installation environments and in virtual working environments.
Aim: to create a tool to facilitate querying of distributed online resources for use in real-time, on-the-fly, in practice-as-research, professional and community-generated arts practices — in both static and mobile contexts.
