We're also ditching the hotel rooms and instead putting the artists up
with staff, friends, friends of friends, and community groups - in spare
rooms and couches where they'll naturally feel more a part of the city
and hopefully offer an exchange.

Brava! Joline Blais and I have run nearly all of Still Water's Code  
and Creativity conferences this way, injecting participants into our  
various living rooms (and often into our kayaks or skis).

At one of these events, after a swim off our dock, Eva and Franco  
Mattes of 0100101110101101.ORG described our approach as "typical net  
art practice." In the early days of Soros-funded Eastern European  
meetings, the Mattes--like many net artists--would periodically  
cobble together enough resources to travel to a new media  
exhibition / festival in Budapest or Ljubliana or wherever. The  
organizers had little in the way of a hotel budget, and often less  
for installation equipment. So the artists would frequently end up  
sleeping on their couches, which led to late-night conversations over  
drinks, which turned out to be far more important to the culture of  
net art than whatever took place in the official venues.

Fastforward a decade and net artists like the Mattes are now  
celebrated enough to be sought after by the mainstream art world. Eva  
and Franco described their experience of being flown to New York or  
LA to find their work beautifully installed in an immaculate museum  
gallery. Unfortunately, the shift from creative process to  
exhibitable product has left something crucial out of the equation.  
All the Mattes get from the curators today is a handshake at the  
opening, leaving them free to return to their well appointed hotel  
room and ponder the inverse relation between production values and  
social contact.

Hotels are prosthetic hospitality, just as a mirror is a prosthetic  
lover and money is prosthetic trust.
