Field Broadcast is a platform that enables artists to stream new work live from a remote location- a broadcast that is literally from a field to your computer via a desktop application, live. All works, whether video, animation, performance, sculpture or live data will be created in the field with no editing or post-production. Each broadcast will be viewed by a dispersed international audience, at office desks, in cafes, on trains and at kitchen tables.
To access the broadcast visit and click download viewer and follow the instructions.  Once you have installed the viewer each broadcast will arrive directly to your desktop.  A bell will ring in Wysing’s gallery to mark the start of each new broadcast and there will be a special live screening at Wysing on the 16 May. Information about accessing the performances is also available in the gallery.

Field Broadcast explores the relationship between artist and landscape; the landscape is not the subject, but operates as a platform and active agent in the production of new work. The live nature of the broadcast is a crucial element of the project, linking the production and presentation of the work in a single event. The artist takes a performative role within the production of the work, be it on or off camera.  This opens up new possibilities in the relationship between production and viewing, in the compressed time frame, the context and chance environmental conditions of where and when the event happens and where it is viewed.  The live transmission offers a new opportunity to engage with landscape, forging a direct link between the viewer’s location and the landscape from which the artist broadcasts, the environment contributing to the event.
