TRACKING SHOT 1: Desert Sessions
LIVE: 8 - 21 April 2017
Field Broadcast are partners with TRACKINGSHOT, a site responsive collaborative project exploring frontier spaces. Desert Session artists are Rebecca Birch, Leah Capaldi, George Charman and Adam Knight.
Artists will be located in the Mojave Desert in April 2017. Over two-weeks they will broadcast live artworks daily, using Field Broadcast's software, directly to your desktop or phone as a transmitted interruption. To receive the broadcasts download and install the TRACKINGSHOT receiver software. Once installed the app waits quietly until the artwork is broadcast, when a live video stream will open, unannounced, on your computer or phone.

Associate collaborators Jonathan Griffin, Ellen Mara De Wachter and Chris Fite-Wassilak will contribute texts in response to the broadcasts. These essays will be archived and freely available from May 2017 via this website. Enroute to the Mojave Desert the artists will embark on an investigative road trip exploring the relationship of the desert to the body, time and production, gathering field notes and interview transcripts which will also be published here.
Field Broadcast is a live broadcast project connecting artists, audiences and obscure locations through the portal of the computer desktop. Field Broadcast has developed through the practice of, and is run by, artists Rebecca Birch and Rob Smith.
