OTM 'Excited Atoms' exploration of virtual mobility in performing arts

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’.
