PROJECT LAUNCH / a work in progress 2009/10

b e a m - m e - up ONLINE ART MAGAZIN
with art, field studies and essays about space.

We invite you to THE NOWHERE DANCE

A performance at Alan Sondheim's Second Life exhibition "The Accidental

Alan Sondheim: "We'll teleport people into an installation which has been 
constructed over a period of eight months. It represents nothing of 
architecture, fantasy, or surrealism; it's a space unlike anything in the 
real world. It's difficult to move through, a field of alien processes 
which has a life of its own. Sandy Baldwin and I will dance through and 
around it - on the ground, in the air, and on the ocean floor. Part of the 
dance will be based on learning to move around; part will be based on 
adding to the clutter."

on the project b e a m - m e - up:

Our understanding of space is changing for generations. In the digital age 
we use terms like Cyberspace, Globalization and World Wide Web, even 
though we have hardly understood the old electro-spaces like power supply 
systems, telephone and broadcasting. By means of audio-visual 
transportation we conquer new spaces, which present themselves as both 
picture space and space of action, place of signs and of real presences.

With the online project beam me up we invite artists and authors from 
different countries to concern themselves with space concepts in the form 
of art contributions and essays.
