[Update February 10th 2010]
I have now booked (ref 48481) a group visit to Decode, for wednesday the 17 th and this grants us free access to the exhibition.
You need to collect your tickets from me. So, let’s meet at 3:30 by the Porter Gallery, situated next to the V& A’s grand Entrance (the front of the museum).

Read about the exhibition here.
etivity for week 10
“Decode looks at three current themes within digital design: Code shows how computer code, whether bespoke and tailored, or hacked and shared, has become a new design tool; Interactivity presents works that respond to our physical presence; Network charts or reworks the traces we leave behind.”
1-the website for the exhibition where you can learn about the 3 sections the material is organised into and browse each individual work:
2- review your readings for week 2 of ‘networked book, a networked book about networked art.’
an easy way to browse all posts for that theme is via the tag ‘networked art’
Following your reading of networked book’s essay, choose a networked art project at the V & A decode exhibition, to analyse in relation to the online essay.
1-you may want to compare the three- dimensional form of the networked installation with the on-line aspect of the written text, commenting on the way the network is translated into the context of a spatial gallery instalation.
2- you may focus on the code/ interactive/ or networked aspects of the work to analyse its installation in the physical, technological , visual and/or social space of the gallery;
3- or if the work is also available online (some are; others don’t) you may want to analyse how this translates into the gallery space
Two paragraphs , to be posted after your visit to the gallery;
