*15 MAY with COLM LALLY & VERINA GFADER
:
Condensation revisited: strategic walking / access to knowledge /
economics of things / the locatable document / conversation pieces *


In June 2007 Colm and Verina undertook a residency programme at the
New Media Institute in Banff, Alberta, Canada. During the residency
they expanded the notion of ?interface? associated with various forms
of online communication and exchange, to other, perhaps more radical,
forms of spaces between different entities. At the core of the
non-methodical walking and other actions Colm & Verina undertook
emerged the search for where a site of potential resides beside of
technologies? restrictive mode of ex/inter-change and so-called
collaborative or networked practices. Conceptual detours led their
research into speculations on the substances of exchange and artistic
agency.

At The Thursday Club Colm & Verina will present a lecture, a
'document' of the process that their project Condensation took during
the residency at Banff. This includes questions of: the necessity of
temporary frameworks; the character of dialogical communication
processes; the failure as a site of potential. In an informal setting
the 'document' will take the format of a line, or ?walking? - of
virtually making a tour through various landscapes...


COLM LALLY is founder and director of E:vent. Since 2003 Colm has
taken a hands-on role developing the E:vent programme, focusing on
media art; video; performance; and electronic music. Colm was a
co-organiser of Node.London 06 and is co-director of Arts in Action
artists community.

VERINA GFADER completed a practice-based Ph.D. in Fine Arts at Central
Saint Martins College, London in 2006, and recently joined CRUMB (web
resource for new media art curators) as post-doc research assistant.
