participatory media art meetups

circuitBoard media arts meetups are a participatory space for investigating the way we prototype and interact with technology and artifacts. We are are interested in how social peer-to-peer processes can engage artists in dialogue around sustainability, and manage resources based on trust and cooperation. circuitBoard meetups aim to generate new concepts of how we distribute technology and tools in creative, social spaces and to identify ways of sharing agency with others.

Look carefully at the so-called immaterial world of the information age: it takes a lot of material to realise the immaterial. The overly euphoric inhabitants of virtual worlds who wish to leave their bodies overlook the obvious facts that the networks which convey their fantasy-existence are made of parts assembled in Malaysia or Taiwan or Mexico or in other low wage countries. (Garrin, 1997)
