One of the briefest meetings that I had in Moncton was with Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel Dugas. They arrived near the end of the conference as they were working on a project called “We are getting closer” that is all about location, location, location. With a grueling travel schedule they went across the country from Alberta to New Brunswick with a wireless webcam connecting people in different regions as they went. Using wireless technology they would connect to the internet somewhere inside a building and then be able to wander around outside with camera and microphone and send the video and sound across the country and around the world. On the site you can see archived stuff, but there is something very cool about a live connection. A great use of technology and a tiring learning experience, it’s the type of project that will hopefully happen more and more as we connect and share stories and experiences. The thing that stands out with this project is how generous and helpful people can be and that art doesn’t just exist inside and in galleries…let’s use the Web to get closer!
