Grrls Meet in Different Ways Now was a three month networked
performance lab of Michelle Teran with Ellen Røed, a media artist from Trondheim,
It developed from our mutual need to experiment with more enhanced
and diverse forms of communication through the internet that accurately
reflected ourselves as creative beings working and interacting online.
Using combinations of teleconferencing, cross-media synthesizer and
video manipulation software (icq, ivisit, nato and keystroke) we
conducted online meetings which were situated towards the collaborative
building of a communal, mediated space.
These encounters started with spaces based on the “real” and the
“everyday” and were conceptual explorations of time delay, feedback,
multiple representations of actions and temporalities, composed together
in a common landscape. The third, mediated space and how we place
ourselves within it contained the emotive dynamics of our communication.
