ok this sounds like a broad new media digital term, but its not what it is about. please dont be afraid of this category, its where i am going to be collecting and researching artists and resources for my essay on performance and installation art in and around the social arena.
The title is not yet confirmed, however ‘re-framing the social interface’ covers this new style of performance where a scene is created that replicates a body in society and performed/ recontextualised. for example my airport (Daft Airlines) was a simulation of an existing experience. However its not just works that extract modes from the social sphere, im also looking at artists who work directly with experiences and interactions from life. There will be lots of referencing from Nicholas Bourriaud and Claire Bishop.
This essay is due in on april 19th.
