5 short movies by 5 film makers about 5 networked art projects exploring imaginative and critical approaches to social engagement.

Furtherfield has commissioned 5 short movies about 5 UK-produced networked art projects which explore critical approaches to social engagement. These pieces offer alternative interfaces to the artworks and the every-day artistic practices of their producers. They introduce the motivations and social contexts of artists and artists’ groups who are working with DIY approaches to digital technology and its culture, where medium and distribution channels merge.

Original concept and production Furtherfield, London, UK. 2006
In association with HTTP Gallery [House of Technologically Termed Praxis], London, UK.
Made with the support of Stiftelsen Längmanska Kulturfonden and Mejan Labs in Stockholm, Sweden – Arts Council England and Awards for All in UK.
