Network Arts: Transformation of Distance

The Orpheus Institute is for the third time one of the satellite sites for the NowNet Arts Conference. NowNet Arts Conference is an annual event for artists, technologists, researchers, educators, and industry professionals advancing topics in contemporary network arts for the ongoing development of the field.

NowNet Arts Conference is an annual event for artists, technologists, researchers, educators, and industry professionals advancing topics in contemporary network arts for the ongoing development of the field. The 2021 theme “Network Arts: Transformation of Distance” refers to geographic distance and broader concepts such as physical, emotional, societal, environmental, and dimensional distance. What is distance? How is distance transformed in the field? How can the field address distance through diversity, equity, access, and inclusion? How can the geographic nature of network arts transform environmental relationships? Is there distance in loss on individual and collective scales that can be transformed? How can we develop artistic and technological components of these transformations in our field? The NowNet Arts Conference 2021 is a program of papers, workshops, presentations, panels, and concert demonstrations that feature this topic and generate new innovations for this work forward.
