Watching Artwork in the Mojave Desert, Live!
From April 8th to the 21st you will be able to receive the first broadcast entitled 'Desert Sessions' a by downloading the app from www.trackingshot.net. TRACKINGSHOT is a site responsive collaborative project exploring frontier spaces with artists Rebecca Birch, George Charman, Adam Knight and Leah Capaldi who will be located in the Mojave Desert in April 2017 where they will broadcast live artworks daily, in collaboration with Field Broadcast, directly to your desktop or phone as a transmitted interruption. Once installed the app waits quietly until the artwork is broadcast, when a live video stream will open, unannounced, on your computer or phone.
Associate collaborators Jonathan Griffin, Ellen Mara De Wachter and Chris Fite-Wassilak will contribute texts in response to the broadcasts. These essays will be archived and freely available from May 2017 via the Trackingshot website. Enroute to the Mojave Desert the artists will embark on an investigative road trip exploring the relationship of the desert to the body, time and production, gathering field notes and interview transcripts which will form the basis of further projects.
