Article about 5+5=5 Project on NewMediaFix by Tindara Sidoti.

5 short movies by 5 film makers about 5 networked art projects exploring 
critical approaches to social engagement.

5+5=5 is an experiment on the boundary of media, art and film; a 
cross-pollination that uses a variety of cultural influences from cinema 
and the Internet, to provide an access point to networked art and the 
artists groups’ selected projects. Furtherfield have commissioned these 
five short movies that feature conversations between artists, audiences 
and film-makers. 5+5=5 manages to tap into the current fluidity of the 
boundaries that exist, between genre and media; a space between art, 
film and technology that has resulted in artists like Douglas Gordon and 
Philippe Parreno releasing Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006) in 
cinemas. Though interpretive, these films are more contextually 
assertive than Turner Prize nominee style documentaries and betray a 
more inter-disciplinary function. The movies are an example of how the 
relationship between art and film can work effectively; not only do they 
hook you, making you curious about the projects themselves but each one 
is an engaging film.
