anyWare is a distributed media sculpture comprised of two identical objects and a third virtual online portal that are individually connected to the Internet and physically mirror each other.

The anyWare sculptures are art objects that telematically connect different locations in the world and enable distal physical communication. The objects simultaneously respond to people who interact directly with them, as well as allow them to interact with each other through the sculptures.

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.

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).
