Johannes is correct that since the AV Festival launched we have all slowed down substantially, as we take in the many exhibitions, screenings and performances all as part of the 'as slow as possible' programme.
The notes from the final round-up session of the workshop are being edited and will be posted here to the list, as will video and stills from the event, to the relevant page on the CRUMB website:
One key thing which I took away from the day was how the language of different online platforms for the dissemination of art differs from one sector to another -- film and video, net art, gallery-based media art practices. We discussed in our particular break-out group how to get audiences for the online platforms to participate in the projects, and how to keep that attention. A suggestion was reversing the normal order of activity on the web: making logging-in a benefit or reward resulting from participation rather than a prerequisite to participation. And what are the benefits of intervening in existing platforms (such as YouTube) rather than building other / separate platforms? It was generally decided the day wasn't long enough to address the issues which were raised!
Any other thoughts from participants to the workshop?
