Abstract:

  • A discussion of The Hole Residency provides a context for assessing the crucial role that technology can play in art projects that are framed in the boundaries of social practice or socially-engaged art, especially by the near-absence of technology in such projects. The Hole Residency is a project focused on duration, visceral experience, collaboration, and the opportunity to engage directly with nature. It also provides a framework for considering the relationship between art, science and technology within a hands-on context.
