Arts Go the Distance: Creating a Low-Budget, Long-Distance Collaboration
Shafer, John; Brown, George; Boyd, Be; Marino, Danielle; Merritt, Don
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v28 n2 p42-49 2005
The authors' experiments with long-distance arts collaboration in a multiform environment began in July 2002. They consider a multiform environment to be an interactive environment where different audiences experience a shared event from different and mutually exclusive frames of reference. The Dynamic Media Project team members had extensive experience as performers, directors, and playwrights, but none of them had experience creating a multiform project. They expected to learn many things during their experiments with multiform, but they sought to answer one primary question: could they maintain story clarity and message for their audiences in a live, long-distance, multiform environment? In this article, the authors describe how the Bradley University-University of Central Florida Dynamic Media Project team used Internet2 to stage "Antigone" from multiple sites. A sidebar lists the technology used in the Dynamic Media Project. (Contains 5 figures, 4 tables and 2 endnotes.)
