Winner of the 2008 New Media Production Grant for Young Artists sponsored by the Caisse Populaire Desjardins du Mont-Royal

P2P / Peer to Painting (A Simulation) is a site-specific performance about simultaneously producing identical paintings in multiple locations. P2P will examine the social network as a means of creating paintings using network architecture as a method for collaborative art production.

The performance takes place in OBORO’s New Media Lab. There will be 3 painters and myself. Each of us will be set up in a work station separated by dividers to prevent us from being able to see each other. The arrangement of the work stations simulates the idea that the painters are in diverse locations around the world.
