Biennial Live Event in the Everyday Digital (BLEED) is a new six-year project exploring the interplay between the live and the digital. From URL to IRL and back again, this is art that meets you where you already are: online, hyper-connected and endlessly networked.
Presented by Arts House (Melbourne) and Campbelltown Arts Centre (Sydney), BLEED tracks the many border crossings that occur between bodies and devices, the real and the virtual, and their private and public selves. As the digital increasingly seeps into communities, identities and culture, these works make visible the shifts in power that result.
BLEED is made up of new art across various platforms that seek to stretch their understanding of the moment in which you find yourselves. The project will explore different models of sharing art, and in the process celebrate the spaces contemporary art is claiming within a digital public sphere. BLEED will encourage different modes of listening, watching and playing, while still asking the question: where, when and how do people come together?
Arts House and Campbelltown Arts Centre acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands they work on, the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) and the Dharawal people.
