This paper introduces a critical rationale for the emerging technological landscape through a new methodological approach designed to challenge current orthodoxies regarding traditional methods, new media and electronic communications practice.
The 'intermedia' conceptual model locates these media practices in three layers, the Context layer, the Interface (Ice) layer and the Representation layer. The rationale provides a working pathway ‘through’ and ‘between’ single or multiple sets of international case studies.
This blueprint for artists, art educators and students is designed to enable users to identify and locate their position in relationship to the traditional methods (hardscape) and the digital tools (softscape) they are using. Through intermedia practice, personal, social and professional networks can be realised, however it is essential that users understand and effectively utilize the new cultures of communication to critically manage and craft their diverse working environments across communities.
The presentation will include an online social network site of resources to enable participants to take part in the intermedia 'conversation on the frozen lake' in remote and real time.
