Hi,

I hope this project will be of interest to the list and is within the  
etiquette of such posts.

Field Broadcast West is a project by the artists Rebecca Birch and Rob  
Smith that we have helped to fund through Creative Citizen initiative  
at Bournemouth University. Originally established with SCAN, this is  
an element of some research into the development of the software by  
artists that can then be used in a variety of contexts from citizen  
media to citizen science, as well as the arts. In addition to  
practical help by directly assisting those working in the difficult  
field of media arts in the UK at this time, the project seeks to find  
sustainable and socially engaged new media practices that stand in  
their own right as well as providing models for engagements by  
scientists and journalists to help communities create their own public  
policy documents. The project as a whole is a collaboration with the  
Extreme Citizen Science Research Centre at UCL. We believe this kind  
of innovative work can go beyond any political byline of 'big  
society' (UK Coalition Government speak for cutting state services  
underpinned by the so-called radical thinking of red conservative  
Phillip Blonde). Creative thinking through new media, open tools,  
systems and networks can potentially lead to ways of giving voice to  
remote, unconnected and unrepresented in our society, creating  
documents, data and evidence as we see a shift towards open societal  
models of participation. It might not be what they are expecting, but  
as they asked, we should oblige.

So in the spirit of participation and as professionals interested in  
new media arts audience, if you want to receive some live unscheduled  
broadcasts care of Field Broadcast West direct to your computer  
desktop or laptop  - simply download the widget. See details below.

Please feel free to forward.

We hope you enjoy.

Best regards,

Neal White

Broadcasting Artists are:  Bram Thomas Arnold, Sarah Bowker-Jones, Dan  
Coopey, Hamilton and St Amand, Steve Rowell of Office of Experiments,  
Matthew Tickle and Dan Walwin

Field Broadcast West offers viewers the opportunity to experience  
seven artistsí work broadcast live to your computer desktop, direct  
from the remote landscapes in which they are being created.
The seven artists will create new works in response to the curatorial  
theme of sunsets. This familiar, and valuable currency in landscape  
art, tourist iconography and advertising, experienced through picture  
postcards, travel brochures and throughout art history will be re- 
examined through the prism of twenty-first century technology.

To view the broadcasts from the seven artists you will need to do  
download the Field Broadcast pinger from our website www.fieldbroadcast.org 
  install the software and make sure you have your computer switched  
on at sunset!

The Seven broadcasts will be made during the 13 days, the exact days  
will not be announced- you will have to be there!  You can however  
follow us on Twitter @fieldbroadcast http://twitter.com/fieldbroadcast

This series of broadcasts is made possible through commissioning by  
Creative Citizen Project in association with Emerge - the Experimental  
Media Research Group at Bournemouth University. Part of the Digital  
Hub, the project seeks to help support sustainable citizen arts, media  
and science projects and to develop creative social capital and  
enterprise in remote communities through digital media.

Field Broadcast is developed and produced by artists Rebecca Birch and  
Rob Smith. Launched in 2010 as part of Wysing Arts Contemporary:  
Presents at Wysing Art Centre, Cambridge. It was presented live  
through the field broadcast software and in the gallery. Field  
Broadcast has featured over forty artists including Ed Atkins, Susan  
Collins, Juan Cruz, Sean Edwards, Simon Faithfull and Laura Wilson.  
Field Broadcast is a live broadcasting network/ project/ platform/  
contraption that enables artists to make artworks that forge a direct  
link between the place they are broadcasting from and their audience.
