Aether9 – Remote realtime storytelling
Project website: http://aether9.org
Aether9 is a group of media and video artists from all over the world working together with net streaming performances. I got involved in 2009 after a break in net streaming.
I stream from South Savo in Finland, from a small village called Tunnila. My aim is to make ordinary, traditional works of the countryside. So far, my streams have included planting vegetables and building a shed. I’m in a search for lost old skills, necessary for survival in eco-catastrophe and useful in everyday life (or so called homing?). My stream is broadcasted with very low bandwidth, but Aether’s interface enables me to do this. There are simultaneously nine or six live streams viewable. The performances are exhibited in festivals, events, art museums and galleries in real time.
