Based around the archive at Vancouver’s VIVO Media Arts Centre, this 2015 sound piece conceives of oral histories and soundscapes as a means to reflect upon art production and processes. Inspired by an early artwork by Mona Hatoum, “Networks, Distance, So Much I Want to Say” addresses the egalitarian hopes of early artist networks, the difficulties of representation, and reflects on modern state and corporate surveillance through networked technologies.
