Long Time No See Project: participation design


Published on

Long Time No See? is a new project supported by the Australia Council for the Arts Special National Broadband Initiative to create an innovative 'next generation' artwork optimised for the forthcoming National Broadband Network (NBN).

We will create a living work that develops dialogs around time, community and futures, working with a range of nascent communities of interest, initially drawn from NBN connected locations, students and special interest groupings such as Festival audiences.

CLA asks participants to explore four differentlayers of understanding issues of concern: Litany: Surface, easily-verified comments Social Causes: Statements invoking actors and their structural relationships Discourse/Worldview: Grand, “big picture” statements that challenge assumptions on the previous two levels - reflect deeper, generally non-negotiable worldviews. Myth and Metaphor: Folk sayings, slogans, archetypes and ancient stories.
