a research blog about network-enabled performance


In July 2004, Jo-Anne Green and Helen Thorington of, and Michelle Riel, Assistant Professor of New Media at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB), originated the networked_performance blog.

For this purpose, they defined networked_performance as any live event that is network enabled. They included any form of networking in which computational devices speak to each other and create a feedback loop. They also qualified networked performance as being live, or experienced at the moment of creation or reception.

What the blog revealed and continues to reveal is an explosion of creative experimental pursuits made possible by the migration of computation out of the desktop PC and into the physical world (where it is becoming increasingly woven into the fabric of our lives), and by the continuing advances in internet technologies, wireless telecommunications, sensor technologies and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). In these explorations artists are utilizing pervasive, ubiquitous computing technologies that are inexpensive, readily available, and most importantly, mobile and wirelessly networked. These include technologies, devices, and protocols such as mobile phones, PDAs, GPS cards, wi-fi, Bluetooth, sensors, and open source software. The blog further reveals that these technologies are being utilized by a growing generation of programming capable artists and artistically minded engineers and computer scientists.
