Hello List,



We have a number of threads and conversations going that you are welcome to
continue, however, as the topic this month is quite broad, and has expanded
ever broader to encompass a wide swath of all things new media, let me
introduce a final more focussed challenge for the final week of March.



In the spirit of CRUMB's practical approach to research, I propose that we
spend the final week giving examples of performativity and code within our
own work by responding to a question of When:



When, in your own art practice, does performativity occur?  Is it when the
code is written? Is it when you perform with your body or voice?  When a
participant encounters your work?  At all of these points, at another time,
or not at all?  Can you give a specific example?



You may choose to comment on the way you are defining performativity in
your answer (many definitions have been offered over the course of the
month).



I will post again soon answering this question in relation to one of my own
projects.



Victoria
