Welcome to the Telematic Arts blog!

The purpose of this blog is to facilitate discussion about telematic arts, including:
* a (somewhat fragmented) history of telematic arts
* backgrounds regarding some individuals and organizations that have contributed to this field
* resources for artists who are interested in organizing their own telematic projects
* examples of telematic practices that have worked and methods that could be fine tuned

Telematic performances have been happening for more than 30 years. Often telematic performances have occurred in academic settings. However, since technology has improved so much over the past several years and a variety of software can be used for telematic performances, more people have been doing telematic performances other venues such as bars, art galleries, converted warehouse spaces, and so on.
