Hello, and Welcome to the Situation:
an Introduction to the Digital Writing
Group this Presentation Introduces
contextualises a digital writing performance taking place during the
conference. Undertaken in shifts by a group of distant performers and
active throughout each day, this performance experiments with the use of
collaborative writing in a publicly visible ‘google document’ online.
The content is vulnerable to edits, accidents, deletion. What will be
communicated by individual voices, and what is exposed by the gaps and
collisions between the writers? Writing, seen here as an active process,
moves from a means of communicating ideas to a material: a chessboard
on which to willfully move, shift, introduce, take away, cheat.
