Jon Thomson {amp}amp; Alison Craighead are london-based artists working with video, sound and electronic networked space to create gallery and site-specific artworks and installations.

They worked a lot with communication technologies e.g Beacon with different search engines

“ We saw the usage and reconfiguration of this data in online works like Altitude and Weightless as being within the artistic traditions of appropriation and the readymade, except that on the web, if you are simply linking to existing resources rather than downloading them, the appropriation is different and slight. Perhaps ‘accessing’ would be a better term”

“This is a perennial problem for us, and most acute with the works that use other people’s live data, because we cannot control what others do and so their resources that we use eventually expire.”

One of the work they showed in the conference:
A LIVE PORTRAIT OF  TIM BERNERS-LEE (AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM)
1) A live portrait of Tim Berners-Lee (an early warning system) is a drawing made from two live cameras located on opposite sides of the world and eleven time zones apart from each other. The image updates every sixty seconds and so as the earth rotates and orbits the sun, night becomes day and day becomes night, which makes the image invert every twelve hours or so.
