accumulating data, artworks, collaborators and processes, relating technological limitations to political circumstances, exposing dominant linguistic constraints on the Internet, and challenging conventional notions of exhibition. …here nor there… is not just a projected virtual space, but a tangible resource;
a frame predicated on technological reference points of virtual space, but actually consisting of human interactions to create a permeable border across many technologies. …here nor there…
experience the work. …here nor there… is; a website, where the artists have built a virtual studio space to meet up in and exchange images and dialogue; an exhibition project, generating short films and sound works, a residency project across an institutional and an artist- led context; and an ongoing series of events and collaborations
…here nor there… has meaning when its collaborators come together to produce or experience an event, and apart from the website archive, requires that its creators and collaborators be present to work, exhibit, perform and discuss in the next temporary location, or incarnation, of …here nor there… .
some perspectives on the use of internet technology and residency situations integral to HNT\'s interest in cultural diversity and equal opportunity:
To work across borders - whether political, geographic, or linguistic - by developing programming for an internet profile which is simple and quick enough for artists to use in areas of the world where computers and even electricity are not easily accessible, or in dependable supply, as is presntly the case in Tbilisi.
2) To use the internet as a communication tool to develop art work in a variety of media (visual, sound, text, etc.) as an \"electronic sketch pad\". A tool for collaboration and communication between artists internationally, when it is not possible to work together physically.
3) The importance of participating in and organising residency situations which continue to extend the network of international collaboration: for example, \'radio…here nor there\' which involved artists from a wide number of countries through which strong contacts for future collaboration.
