"Surface Tension aims to broadly explore the notion of Site by addressing questions of public space and the frictions and conversations that occur as intersections of the imagined and the real. Through investigating these interactions, Surface Tension will seek to make apparent connections between cultural production and the very spaces in which such work functions. As much as the rhetoric of globalization, virtuality, and digital networking dominates contemporary discourses of place and space, Surface Tension looks towards proximate space and experiences of locality to tease out the tensions between contemporary global communications and the site-specifics of everyday life. Rather than reinforce existing notions of an authentic alternative vs. a 'wired' culture, we hope to explore the cultural and personal investments made in technology in order to examine how social andpolitical space is inhabited and made manifest. This entails a consideration of the desires, impulses, and longings which occur within and against the contexts of social spaces and cultural arenas, and how this very interaction performs within the dynamics of spatial organization. Out of these relations comes the radically diverse ways space can be negotiated, manipulated, and traversed."
"From Gordon Matta-Clark to Lawrence Weiner, Bruce Nauman to Alison Knowles, the question of site locates itself in issues of public space, at the intersection of the imagined and the real, at the juncture of performance and architectural production. By anthologizing essays, documents, and interviews by leading critics, historians, and artists on issues of site-specificity, conceptualism, feminism, and architecture practice, Surface Tension reveals the connections between cultural production and the very spaces in which such work functions. These textual explorations are complemented by extensive documentation of related projects, both historical and contemporary, by artists, architects, and performance artists, including Coughing Piece, a never-before released 1961 audio work by Yoko Ono; an obscure audio work by Nauman from 1969; projects by Suzanne Lacy, a leading figure in the development of conceptual practice and public art; and an experimental text by Jane Rendell on psychic architectures. Conversations occur between the pages of Surface Tension, between theoretical analysis and modes of practice, that activate the publication as a site itself, one participating in a broad field of knowledge. Includes an audio CD of the sound art pieces."
