Speedshow

In July I will be taking part in a speedshow curated by Nora O’Murchú in association with the openhere festival addressing the issue of digital commons. The festival should be an interesting mix of events, talks and workshops and I am looking forward to being involved in the speedshow.

We’re no strangers to love
You know the format and so do I
A web commitment’s what I’m thinking of
You wouldn’t get this from any other user
I just wanna tell you how I’m feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna gif you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and jpeg you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

We’ve known each other for so long
Your heart’s been glitchin but
You’re too shy to say it
Inside we both know what’s been going on
We know the format and we’re gonna make it
And if you ask me how I’m feeling
Don’t tell me you’re too blind to see

Never gonna gif you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and jpeg you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

The SPEED SHOW exhibition format: Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and life pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted.
