[ISEA2009] Artist Statement: Pip Shea – ANYCAST, 2009

Artist Statement

Networked installation. Various places.

Networked installation ANYCAST embodies the energy of groups and their capacity to contribute their underused energy, or ‘spare cycles’ to enable others. Participation is democratising the media space, leaving a slew of disruptive innovation in its wake. Traditional notions of hierarchy are being questioned as we see the rise of the crowd as power broker. ANYCAST is a participatory work that examines the emerging creative interactions enabled by networked communications technologies

Development and technical assistance – Cameron Adams & Mark Burza.                                    Additional thanks to Jiann Hughes.

  • Pip Shea (AU) is an electronic media artist and designer.
