Later the same day, research fellows Michelle Teran and Ellen Røed both presented their projects for the forum. Michelle's performance "Folgen" further elaborates her research into the dynamic space between online video sites and actual terrestial locations. Taking the form of a diaristic "novel", the text of the performance is based on and adressed to the originators of a series of You Tube videos geotagged to sites in Berlin.
Ellen presented documentation of her ongoing work, including machines made in collaboration with Christian Blom, who has also recently become a research fellow at the Oslo music academy. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion chaired by Magnus Bartås, professor at Konstfack, Stockholm.
