transit lounge 2008

BERLIN / AUSTRALIA (MELBOURNE SYDNEY BRISBANE MUTTAMA PERTH)

In 2008, TRANSIT LOUNGE becomes an experiment in remote collaboration, as 15 artists work between Berlin, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, on the evolution of a complex, emergent structure. The platform for this trans-disciplinary exchange is the TRANSIT LOUNGE website, powered by open-source, wiki software. An organic structure, the site grows in multiple directions as the content is layered and interlinked, tracing remote interactions and local interventions between artists. The latency of these dialogues across time zones and locations creates feedback loops (local interventions – web – local interventions) opening up spaces for mistranslation resonating between the different cities.

The multitude of inputs, exchanges, and disruptions will be distilled in an exhibition which opens at PROGRAM BERLIN on the 31st January, 2008 to coincide with transmediale.08. Here the variations will continue to multiply as the process is augmented by the actions of visitors to the space.

TRANSIT LOUNGE
is a project by Katie Hepworth and Miriam Mlecek and involves the following artists:

Chris Bennie (Brisbane), Bianca Calandra (Berlin), Robert Curgenven (Berlin), Cat Hope (Perth), Tanja Kimme (Melbourne), Somaya Langley (Berlin), Sarah Last (Muttama), Silvia Marzall (Berlin), Ben Milbourne (Melbourne), Michael Prior (Melbourne), Lynda Roberts (Melbourne), Jodi Rose (Berlin), Sumugan Sivanesan (Sydney), Anna Tautfest (Berlin)

free beer, i mean work...

its been about a decade since i worked as a waitress, but tell me why would anything have changed?

probably any student doing a waitressing side job to support their university habit would've done a free work trial at some cafe - and now it comes to someone's attention...
