This past week included a few events that indulged the on and offline artist. Saturday, Jan. 17, was the start of The Culture of Interactivity conference at Rockefeller University (http://www.interactive-culture.org). Sponsored in part by The School of Visual Arts, it featured an actual interactive experiment: the audience, divided into groups during one session, assembles in different spaces, each networked to the other.
Meanwhile, later that day in Fair Gotham, audiences were getting interactive with LiAnne Smith, and Neil Furio (Echoids) at CB's Gallery and MUZE's (http://www.muze.com) Ian McGrath of Anomaly at the Orange Bear. These two Web-nauts remind me that creative expression doesn't stop in one place and pick up in another, it is a continual flow.
