Elephants as Bats!


The Elephant in the Room
Tensions between object and process in socially engaged new media art.


Ele Carpenter has suggested that her bat may well be a white elephant. Here's what she wrote:


Art bats... hummm: me thinks mine is a white elephant!
somewhere between bric a brac, and the fact that it's the thing in the room that no-one talks about because they don't know what i actually 'do'.
At the moment I'm writing about art which is not embodied through an object, and the problems with that. Objects are so much more resolved than processes. Although not always so much fun.


(could try find chocolate elephants for easter....!)

In fact that would be a good art-bat 'object' - a chocolate elephant on a shelf in Access Space.... see if no one eats it before easter...... (doesn't have to be white chocolate....)
