Suddenly this has turned into a text blog. Videos will return as soon as I get my face back.
I just had a wonderful three hour window from pain. And spent half of it transcribing a radio interview. Idiot.
Anyway, here it is. I typed it out because just before Christmas, Sull started a group called Artists in the Cloud, to discuss things related to online art, net cinema, etc. We’ve been talking about distribution models, Alternative Reality Games, live video streams of pre-recorded work – all sorts. I’ve been wondering how to triangulate the work we’re doing with trends and movements in the wider world (in art and society).
And tonight I heard something on BBC Radio 4’s art show Front Row, which I wanted to share with the group for that reason.
Since I’d done it for them, I thought I might as well also publish it here.
They were discussing the Tate Triennial 2009, which is called Altermodern – and were introducing the audience to the concept of Altermodernism.
