And suddenly #connectiontime ends. Marathon done, time for showers and food. We're back to where we were but everything's different. Hoorah!

@drpaulhurley @iambsebastian what does it sound like at #connectiontime? is there a noise for catharsis? is this part of ritual / therapy?

Without the viola it's all getting crazy noisy at #connectiontime. @aplaceofaction @iambsebastian - this is ritual *and* therapy!

There's something inherently musical about the #connectiontime experiment: rhythms, crescendos, solos and breaks. Action jazz?

How to translate wonderful sounds of #connectiontime into words and image? There's the rub. Snip, bow, clip fold.

Suddenly something happens. A shift of focus and attention. #connectiontime stops and we look and listen.

A live performance by Paul Hurley and collaborators at Knowle West Media Centre and online

The relationship between human subjects sharing a field of proximity can be described as one between restless containers that contain and exclude one another

2012-04-24 12:49:18

What moves as a body, returns as the movement of thought. Of subjectivity (in its nascent state). Of the social (in its mutant state). Of the environment (at the point it can be reinvented). A process set up anywhere reverberates everywhere. (From Brian Massumi [2011], Semblance and Event: Activist Philosophy and the Occcurrent Arts, MIT.)

2012-04-24 12:49:18

Accompaniment as documentation. Sounding time (and timelessness). To resonate with, to reverberate. To cut across. Communication and quietude.

2012-04-24 12:49:18

Red ribbon. I have been working with this material for a while now.Unfurling, tying, knotting, cutting ribbons in different ways. Sometimes I think of these actions as drawings. Some words I think of when using this material in my performance work: Fold, tether, torque, tension, control, release, fall, let go...

Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, Bristol, BS4 1NL

CONNECTION / TIME

Connection / Time is a research and development project led by Paul Hurley and supported by Arts Council England. It explores the possibilities of live performance documentation through a series of ‘live art laboratories’. These experiments, involving improvised collaborative performances with a loose collective of other artists (Caroline Wilkins, Clare Thornton, H.Ren, Phil Owen, Soozy Roberts and Stephen Robins) from across Bristol and the South West, will take place at indoor and outdoor spaces at Knowle West Media Centre, Arnolfini, Station ArtSpace, Bristol, and Performance Exchange, Stroud. Full information of the project and other performances can be found at www.connectiontime.wordpress.com

Interactive live art performance documentation

Building on work made as part of Whose Data?, an artists’ residency at Knowle West Media Centre, Paul Hurley has been working with Dane Watkins to develop this software interface. It integrates live data streams from social media and can be used by participants and audiences to create live documentation of performance events. As well as digital data streams (such as photographs and Twitter text feeds), these also represent the physical, mental and emotional data that we all generate when we experience something. This will be explored through a series of collective durational performance experiments (with the collaborating artists above) and a public workshop at Arnofini, Bristol.

Live data streams and feeds

This section of the website is an experiment around the creation of data streams and the live digital archiving of performance. What happens when a performance / art work is translated immediately into data? What happens when the meaning of an art work is not dictated by the artist but is created by the people watching / capturing it? And what do people make of that data stream when they view it from a different place or time? Does it mean any more or less?
