Alex Adriaansens (V2_)

Global networks like the internet form a social, cultural, economic and political space for acting and interacting. The network, the whole of connected computers and humans, has multiple entrances for interventions, acting and production. It is a constant intersecting, merging and spliting of multiplicity of forces which are active in the network. One of the topics in the V2_practice is researching the possibilities of intervening and acting in distributed and networked environments through digital interfaces. It is on the one hand about developing tools (or hypothetical tools), but it surely is also about events - social, cultural, artistic - in translocal networked environments like the Internet and the forms of agency and interaction artists are developing for this. Notions like hyperspace and topology are useful for understanding how from interaction in distributed global networks social, cultural and artistic forms and variations are emerging.

I became interested in ethinking topologicallyf while researching the movements of global cultural products. I wanted a way of thinking about movements of objects in space that was able to address how these objects moved and transformed but stayed the same, and a conception of space that was dynamic. And some of the reading I was doing made me think topology might be helpful. Ifll give a brief presentation outlining how I came to describe the ebiographiesf of these objects, and then go on to say something about the kinds of issues this way of thinking raises for me. Topology seems useful to me not only or as well as a source of metaphors and a repertoire of applications, but as a site of conceptual development and reflexive thinking about models.

The programme of residencies is designed to enable a more sustained exchange between particular partners where this has been identified as especially fruitful for the development of an interdisciplinary approach, or likely to strengthen topological approaches within a discipline or working environment.

Residencies (between 2 weeks and 3 months) involve invitations for partners to move between participating institutions, and involve the sharing of disciplinary and interdisciplinary applications and understandings of topological thinking. They also provide partners with the opportunity to experience working in different environments, including research laboratories, and may include the conduct of feasibility studies. Each residency has specific aims that are agreed by the Residencies Working Group.
