2003's low-fi net art commissions are multi-relational in their efforts to complicate the binary oppositions that often inform our communicative and technological relationships. Ruth Catlow, for example, contributes a model of three-player chess that precludes dualistic competition; 'SimpleTEXT', by Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Tim Redfern, creates a ground for interactive, public performance by cleverly deploying mobile-phone technology; Cavan Convery's 'Vertical Scroll' allows web users to virtually unravel a text that suggests the historical continuity of communication methods across time and place. Projects launch at BALTIC in Gateshead and Limehouse Town Hall in London on the 27th and 29th of November, and emergent connection is very much in the cards -- phones, chessboards, paper, even phraseology are useless to resist!
