HTTP Gallery, Sunday 7th October, 12-6pm
Unit A2 Arena Design Centre, 71 Ashfield Road, N4 1NY

A networking day all about how artists work collaboratively with each 
other and audiences in the co-production of artworks or events as a 
central part of their practice. The event is open to artists, curators, 
musicians, writers, programmers, activists; thinkers and doers of all kinds.

------------------------------------------------------
What Will Happen?
The event kicks off with presentations by artists Saul Albert, Ele 
Carpenter, Adnan Hadzi, Emily Druiff and Lottie Childs, who work with 
different models of participation and engagement. Discussion and debate 
will be encouraged in response to each presentation. After refreshments 
follows an audiovisual performance by Chinese digital artists 8GG, 'the 
air been broken', a new commission by Folly. For the rest of the 
afternoon visitors are asked to show-and-tell each other what they do. 
All visitors are asked to bring some representation of their own 
projects to promote and to share with other potential collaborators. 
These can take the form of  drawings on paper, objects, a digital 
artefacts, a scientific prototype- whatever it takes. We will round off 
the event with an  'open mike' session of quickfire presentations; any 
visitor can present their own or other's work, offer their services and 
skills to another project or make a request for help with completing 
their own project.

More about the presentations and performance

Who Wants To Be?:
Saul Albert from The People Speak presents 'Who Wants To Be?' The game 
show where the crowd has all the answers, makes up the questions and 
sets the rules. On the 9th October 'The People Speak' a London based art 
collective are to conduct a radical experiment in live entertainment. 
'Who Wants to Be?' mixes democratic decision-making, interactive 
animation and improvisation into a dangerously spontaneous game show. 
Using a computer vision voting system designed for use by hoards of 
rowdy people, the audience at the Albany Theatre in Deptford will be 
asked to decide how to spend a 1000 cash pot: the entire box office 
takings! http://whowantstobe.co.uk/


Open Source Embroidery:
Ele Carpenter presents Open Source Embroidery and the HTML Patchwork 
Bringing together programming for embroidery and computing this project 
takes as its basis the common characteristics of needlework crafts and 
open source computer programming: gendered obsessive attention to 
detail; shared social process of development; and a transparency of 
process and product. Open Source Embroidery is a socially engaged art 
project developed through workshops and an email list:

There are also groups on Facebook and Flickr. The same arguments about 
Open Source vs Free Software can be applied to embroidery. The 
needlework crafts also have to negotiate the principles of 'freedom' to 
create, modify and distribute, within the cultural and economic 
constraints of capitalism. The Open Source Embroidery project simply 
attempts to provide a social and practical way of discussing the issues 
and trying out the practice. http://open-source-embroidery.org.uk/


Deptford.TV:
Adnan Hadzi presents Deptford.TV, an audio-visual documentation of the 
regeneration process of the Deptford area. Since September 2005 
Deptford.TV started assembling AV material around the regeneration 
process of the Deptford area, asking community members, video artist, 
film-makers, visual artists and students to contribute statements, 
feedbacks, critiques of the regeneration process of Deptford. This rough 
material as well as edited media content is made available on the 
Deptford.TV database and distributed over the boundless.coop wireless 
network with an open content license such as the creative commons and 
the gnu general public license.
Deptford.TV is in collaboration with SPC.org media lab, Bitnik.org, the 
Boundless.coop, Liquid Culture and Goldsmiths College.

Street Training - City of Respect:
Emily Druiff and Lottie Childs present Street Training - City of 
Respect: a project in cooperation with KunstRaum Goethestrasse and 
Aileen Derieg that explores uses of public space of Neustadtviertel in 
Linz through a series of workshops, discussions and events. This 
research built a laboratory environment in May/June and culminated in a 
Night Walk and a Day of Doing Nothing in September 2007 as part of the 
Ars Electronica Festival. http://streettraining.blogspot.com/

The air been broken:
8gg use digital techniques to "create an open and mobile space infused 
with visual and audio elements". Within this digitised space they 
interact with their surroundings to create new images and sounds via 
movement and expressions. They subsequently feed off these computerised 
reactions and a cycle is formed that creates an ever-changing and 
increasingly entwined audio visual performance. Inspired by human 
anatomy, movement and above all collaboration, the duo believe that a 
sense of joy in creating such works is paramount at all times.
the air been broken performance is associated with the V.I.P. Room 
project by 8gg. part of the exhibition Outside the Box at Cornerhouse, 
Manchester from 14th September  11th November 2007. Commissioned by 
folly, these two projects form the Manchester based elements of the 
VELOCITY Festival of Digital Culture taking place in and around the 
Morecambe Bay area from the 11th October to the 3rd November 2007. the 
air been broken will also be performed at Urban Screens Manchester 07 at 
12 noon on the 13th October 2007. http://www.8gg.com
