Fluidata Opening Performance


‘Streamed river walk’, an online performative presentation

James Cunningham and I presented “Streamed river walk, recounting an embodied environmental networked performance practice”, an ONLINE PERFORMATIVE PRESENTATION at the Networked Bodies Symposium in London, at Watermans, on the 9th November 12.30am (Brisbane time).
We enacted slow walking performance on the bank of Brisbane River, recounting our creek walks around Queensland and the Waterwheel network.

We’ve also presented in March 2015 the FLUIDATA project in progress at the international conference Balance/UnBalance in Arizona State University this year.
Below a screen capture of our presentation, with a map of our itinerary around Queensland to collect data.

Outcome, end and beginnings!

World Water Day symposium was a succes thanks to:
all presenters/performers from around the world; Riccardo Petrella and Ulay who opened the event; Amin Hammami and Prof Hichem Rejeb in Tunisia, who organised the main node at Sousse University; and our energetic team in Brisbane composed of James Cunnigham as go-between, Jeff Turpin aka Prof, our time-keeper (!) and the team of Inkahoots who streamlined the arrival on the Taps just on time for audience to go from tap to tap following the flow of  ideas, thoughts and propositions of the day.
WaterCheers started with Mahesh Vinayakram‘s beautiful voice witnessing the sunrise in Chennai and ended with AWA, a group of Argentinian artists who fell in love with Waterwheel’s possibilities.
