The VisitorsStudio is a live multi-user online arena for production, 
display and discussion of audiovisual, screen based work. Visitors 
experiment and respond to each others' dancing-cursors and chat, while 
uploading, mixing and exhibiting their own compositions - still images, 
mp3 audio and flash animations.

The audio visual mix is always live, all visitors see the mix change and 
develop in real-time as they and others interact - a unique way of 
communicating across perceptual, social, geographical and linguistic 
divides on their own terms.

The studio has also been used as an interview and performance space with 
Furtherfield's sister site furthernoise.org for sonic artists and 
musicians including Jodi Rose [Australia], MikroKnytes [USA] and Scott 
Taylor, Mr Mutton_deluxe [UK]. Furtherfield's recent retrospective of 
net.artist Andy Deck [USA] also culminated with a live interview and 
performance using VisitorsStudio.

Already, many artists and media-labs in the UK, USA, Australia, Balkans 
and Brazil have worked with VisitorsStudio as a global platform for live 
audio-visual jamming events including Autolabs Tactical Week:end 
(Brazil) and furtherfield's collaborative response to the Republican 
National Congress, 'Dissension Convention' featuring over 20 
internationally located artists and broadcast live at Postmasters 
Gallery [NY].

Collaboratively developed by artists, programmers, critics and curators, 
with significant contributions by audiences new to net art, and members 
of online art and technology forums, this platform has grown organically 
in response to their participation. Additions and enhancements to its 
functionality, usability and communication are made to accommodate and 
extend the artistic aspirations of its users.

And yes, it is open for anyone to experiment with - if there is a group 
who wish to meet online let us know...
