Participatory performance piece, 2018.
Put on your sweatband and come learn some new moves as part of Internet Aerobics. After all, everyday that we go online, we send packets of information across internet superhighways through layers of infrastructure: wifi networks, routers, data centers, internet cables, and more. There is a “poetry in the bits and pieces of the internet infrastructure,” as Ingrid Burrington wrote. Sometimes this information moves quickly. Sometimes we wait for it to load, endlessly. The open internet as we know it is changing with new rules about “net neutrality.” Why not embody this infrastructure ourselves?
Accessible for all ages and abilities. No specialized experience, clothing, or equipment is necessary. Aerobics props of blue ethernet cables will be provided.
