From November 6 to December 4 2017, the UK-based Overheard Map of Now organized international teams of artists working in either physical or digital mediums. Artists were invited to explore the paradox of solitary connectedness, the incredible prevalence of digital personas - both consciously performed and not - and the acts of translation and duration that go into making physical work digital and vice versa. The exhibition functioned as an art version of Chinese whispers, with each artist handing over the material for the next to respond to and create from. Two iterations of my involvement are linked below. I was given solo control over the last team's digital presence for 3 days, creating from it the first website. I was then teamed with an artist in Wales, an artist in Scotland, and an artist in England to create the second. Both are still viewable, though without maintenance many features no longer work: 1. 2. The video here shows the final website as it was at the end of the residency and features a self-portrait video taken with one of the unsecured, unintentionally publicly available, private security cameras used throughout the project.
