Net art pioneers JODI will join emerging practitioners from Eyebeam's studios, senior fellow Jeff Crouse & his collaborator Aaron Meyers to discuss their performance installations – The Folksomy Project and The World Series of 'Tubing, respectively – that Eyebeam is presenting as part of PERFORMA 09.

In a discussion moderated by Marisa Olson (Artist, Assistant Professor of New Media, SUNY-Purchase, and Contributing Editor, Rhizome) the artists will share insights into the making of their work, including a behind the scenes look at the tools and methodologies used to source, collect, organize and stage interactive performances for YouTube videos. Artists will also consider the roots of such projects, and contextualize their work within a larger context of creative strategies for re-presenting user generated content in live performance.
