|Abstract:||Step into a living room lovingly created within the GloNet venue, sit on a comfortable armchair, and see someone on the other side of the globe magically transported into the chair next to you. Artist Paul Sermon uses virtual-studio technology to bring remote festival participants into a simulated domestic ‘living-room’ setting, by augmenting participants into the comfort of an 'armchair seminar', bringing geographically remote audiences together in a shared telepresent interactive and performative setting. GloNet Front Room will run between Manchester and Sao Paulo and will involve both programmed and ad hoc interaction. A World Premiere and is created specifically for FutureEverything 2010. This installation follows the development of a series of telecommunication art works Paul Sermon has produced since the early 1990s, using customised videoconferencing technology as a means of bringing geographically remote audiences together in a shared telepresent interactive and performative setting. World Premiere. GloNet Front Room is created specially for FutureEverything 2010 and is supported by the University of Salford, British Council and Northern Net.|
