The Verbal Group Presents The Warhol Hijack {AT} jihui

Live webast at http://netart-init.org 7pm EST.

On January 26-28, 2001, members of the Verbal Group (new media artists Ricardo Dominguez, G.H. Hovagimyan, Yael Kanarek Tina LaPorta, Diane Ludin, Kevin & Jennifer McCoy, MTAA, Cary Peppermint and curator Jennifer Crowe) hijacked WeLiveInPublic.com, Josh Harris and Tanya Corrin's loft in Soho that is wired to the Internet with 32 cameras. All sounds, events, and actions were broadcast live. 

Over the weekend, planned and spontaneous interventions into the physical and virtual space occurred. The Verbal Group also engaged in quite a bit of eating, drinking, conversing about online aesthetics, and hang out with each other and the people in WeLiveInPublic.com chat room.

Through interventions ranging from morning exercises led by people in the WeLiveInPublic.com chat room, to having simulated cybersex, and presenting performative texts to the "toilet cam", the Verbal Group spent the weekend messing around with and trying to cope with living in the ready-made object/space of WeLiveInPublic.com.

Members of the Verbal Group will present this project and talk about its aftermath at Jihui.

The NETART INITIATIVE <http://netart-init.org> is a loosely knit, open source based, hub styled, forum oriented, action enabled consortium,
where people meet, virtually and bodily, to communicate, exchange, and discourse for advancing the understanding of a virtual art, a networked art and an art that will be pervasive and ubiquitous in the years to come.

jihui (the meeting point), a self-regulated digital salon, invites all interested people to send ideas for discussion/ performance/et, jihui is  where your voice heard and your vision shared.
