Being There

not TV's Being There is an invited submissions project involving international contributers.

Being There is a project to explore the overlap of physical and on-line virtual space, by facilitating the creation of artworks that are made specifically in part or in whole for the Internet.

Being There is a project concerned with the idea of transcending space. With modern forms of communication (for example the telephone, television and the Internet) there is a bridging of physical space, enabling people to communicate with each other without physically being in the presence of each other. Being There refers to the term telepresence, where a person has the sense of being present at a distance. For this project the viewers are in the presence of the artwork, wherever they physically are when they view the work.

The project and web site will launch with a party in London on 1st May, then a new artist will be showcased once a week on a Thursday. There will be some information about the artist. There will be an opportunity to contact the artist and a notice board for any comments that you want to appear on the page.

There are also links and text to accompany the site as background information.
