Machines in the Garden: Locative Media, Network Landscapes and New Frontiers

Teri Rueb

Barbara Walker Visiting Artist Lecture, Spring 2009
Dean's Auditorium, Pfendler Hall, Room 241
Thursday, October 1st, 2009, 6:30pm

Mobile networks and wireless telecommunications technologies are inherently spatial at the scale of landscape and infrastructure. Important questions about the relationship of landscape and subjectivity - our very sense of place in the world - emerge with the rise of this new "network land-scape" condition. Artists working in this domain have begun to explore, design and represent this condition in projects that range from networked street performance and activism, to collaborative cartography and pervasive games. Working in the tradition of land and environmental art, as well as sound art and performance, Teri Rueb will present works from the last ten years of her practice as they form an inquiry into the status of landscape, ecology, and the body in the context of mobile network society.
