    Abstract:
    The Art of Networks and Networks as Art is the title of a performance/presentation given at the 12th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival on the theme of Networks. The performance/presentation focused on the development of my work over the last five years and the role of networks within artistic practice. This was detailed in its most obvious sense of works ‘online’ but also explored ideas of interactive models within new media as networks in themselves between artist, artwork and user. The audience were each given postcards with Datamatrix codes (specifically QR Codes) and short instructions on how to begin. These linked them to a webpage to download a 2D Code Reader. QR Codes were displayed on screen throughout the performance / presentation within slides which were online and accessible. The audience could view and interact with the performance / presentation in a variety of ways: - simply watch the presentation; - connect its contents with online media by photographing it though the 2D Code Reader on their web-enabled mobile phone with built-in camera; - or view all of the materials on the artists site and on Google Docs. The intention was to not alone present works which focus on ideas of the network, connecting, augmenting, being distributed and multiple but to emphasise these ideas through the presentation format. Slides are available below or on Google Docs.
