Very Nervous System by David Rokeby, his landmark interactive sound installation, is shown at the Carleton University Art Gallery in Ottawa (Ontario) from November 22, 2010 to January 30, 2011.

Very Nervous System is a seminal work in the history of media art, with a lifespan of more than 28 years. Its celebrity and longevity pose some particularly interesting questions about documentation and contextualisation of media artworks over time and through change.

At the occasion of its exhibition at the Carleton University Art Gallery, we invite you to browse a documentary collection about Rokeby's installation which was produced by Lizzie Muller and Caitlin Jones at the 2009 edition of Ars Electronica in Linz (Austria). Also, after experimenting with the work in Ottawa, you can contribute to this collection by posting comments and documents, and thus sharing your experience with the community. [More...]
