Performances

Art's Birthday anyWare Broadcast
By Jane Tingley, Cindy Poremba and Marius Kintel
January 17, 2019, 2:30 - 3:30 pm
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River

Escape the chill of winter and celebrate the 1,000,056th birthday of art and the opening of the anyWare installation.

At exactly 3:10 pm a special guest will connect to NAISA remotely and collaborate with those at NAISA to play the anyWare sculpture. Listening in to the interaction will be a Satellite radio audience in Europe as part of the Euroradio Ars Acustica special broadcast of Art's Birthday parties from around the world.

anyWare is an Internet of Things distributed sculpture comprised of two identical objects and one virtual online portal that telematically connect different locations in the world and enable distant physical communication. Structuring these interactions are a number of games and puzzles for people to play/solve, either individually or collaboratively. The objects transform in the experience of exploration (either with one person or potentially with many people) and in so doing reveal different levels of interactivity and aesthetic experience.

Listen online on NAISA Radio <https://naisa.ca/naisa-radio> and Euroradio Ars Acustica <https://arsacustica.wordpress.com>

The creation and production of anyWare would not be possible without the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
