The tree is in place, although its bucket seems too small for such a tall arbor. Room is brimming with possibility.

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

Thursday 13th October 2011

Performance 4-8pm
Q&A Session 8-8.30pm

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

A live art performance

Why? And what does it mean?, is a project by artist Paul Hurley that has involved live art and digital media workshops with young people in Knowle West, Bristol. Inspired by these workshops (with the Nlarge digital photography group and the Digital Fish filmmaking group), Paul has been working towards a new performance of his own, which will coincide with the launch of an interactive performance documentation page developed in collaboration with Dane Watkins lead artist on the Whose Data? project.

Interactive live art performance documentation

Whose Data? is concerned with live data streams, and Paul has explored the data streams we produce around live experiences like performance. As well digital data streams such as digital video, photographs and Twitter text feeds, these also represent the physical, mental and emotional data that we all generate when we experience something. Questions like: Why would someone do that? How would someone do that? How does it makes me feel? Is it right to laugh at it?

Live data streams and feeds

This section of the website is an experiment around the creation of data streams. What happens when a performance / art work is translated into data? What happens when the meaning of an art work is not dictated by the artist but is created by the people watching 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?

Knowle West Media Centre

Paul's performance for Why? And what does it mean? will take place at Knowle West Media Centre from 4-8pm on 13th October. You are welcome to come along to view the work live in the studio, and to contribute tweets and photo uploads to the website during the performance. You are also encouraged to follow the performance on the website here, and can also comment and tweet back to people using the Twitter hashtag #whyandwhat and upload photos to the Flickr stream.
