Poietic Generator a Contemplative Social Network Experiment, since 1986. Every player draws on a small part of a global mosaic formed by the dynamic juxtaposition of those parts, which are manipulated by all the participants (eventually it will be possible for several thousand players to play simultaneously). Every player can therefore change the sign in his/her square, depending on the overall state of the image, which itself depends on the actions of all the individual players.
The Plaintext Players were an online performance (or "cyberpformance") group specializing in directed textual improvisations. Along with a few other groups, they jumped in early with the idea that writing could be a fascinating form of performance, and that writers need not be restricted always to the fixed, edited final text as a mode of production.
The Players have been creating live online and mixed-reality performances since 1994, working with a core group of members and a rotating roster of guest artists.
The Colliders: four women who met online in 2001 and formed the globally distributed cyberformance troupe Avatar Body Collision in April 2002. They collaborated from their homes in (mostly) London, Helsinki, Aotearoa/New Zealand and cyberspace. They have still never been all in the same physical space at the same time.
