On-the-Move has launched last April "Excited Atoms" an exploration of virtual mobility in the contemporary performing arts. The author, Judith Staines, in an interview to Lidia Varbanova from the Labforculture.org describes the main challenges raised by the virtual mobility world to artists and policy makers.
In 2010, OTM has launched "Excited Atoms" an exploration of virtual mobility in the contemporary performing arts. The study looks at what virtual mobility means, and gives an overview of the different ways in which artists use new technologies – and thus being also more ‘green’. The Excited Atoms study was funded by OTM member Fundacion Autor, and presents some of the most critical issues and motivations for artists, cultural producers and promoters to collaborate, share, make, question, present and innovate using virtual mobility.
