Why Bother  live video streaming from artists' studios

During the autumn of 2005, Localmotives will be organizing a project which 
aims to stream live video imagery from several artists' working spaces (aka 
«studios»). The project is named Why Bother and will be produced in 
collaboration with i/o/lab and Atelier Nord. The video streams will be part 
of localmotives' 11th themed publication. The publication is titled 1:1 and 
will be physically manifested at Rogaland Art Centre (Rogaland Kunstsenter) 
from the 15th of September to the 27th of November.

We would like to get in touch with artists who already enjoy a high 
bandwidth connection to the internet, and would like to participate in Why 
Bother. You don't need to know a lot about video streaming. We will provide 
the technical assistance to make things work.

There are no million euro cheques to win here, but on the other hand you 
won't have to behave like an ass. We expect you to do the things you'd 
usually be doing, and you don't have to be in front of the camera all the 
time. It doesn't matter whether your working space is a desk, a corner of 
your livingroom or a good old studio.

We hope to gather participants from a geographic area as possible. The live 
streams from the various studios will be displayed in steady rotation on 
monitors in the exhibition room at Rogaland Art Centre.
