Excited Atoms - An Exploration of Virtual Mobility in Performing Arts
By Judith Staines, On-the-move , 2010, 102 pp.
Excited Atoms outlines a history of virtual mobility in performance, presents the main types of work with inspiring current examples and traces some of the most critical issues and motivations for artists, cultural producers and promoters to collaborate, share, make, question, present and innovate using virtual mobility.
In depth interviews with twenty-one key practitioners, cultural managers and critical observers present informed points of view from around the world. A specially commissioned essay by Ghislaine Boddington traces a personal pathway through creative collaborations in performance telematics. A Glossary explains some of the terms and helps demystify technologies and areas of creative practice. A research section entitled Explore More presents over 150 links to artists, projects, platforms, reading and other references to extend the exploration of virtual mobility.
