A range of cross-disciplinary practices and interests converge in the collaboration between ambientTV.NET and kondition pluriel. For London-based ambientTV.NET (artistic directors: Manu Luksch and Mukul Patel), the techniques and effects of data transmission provide theme, medium, and performative space for projects spanning installation and performance, through documentary, dance, and gastronomy, to real-time sound and video composition.

kondition pluriel was formed in 2000 in Montreal out of the collaboration between dancer-choreographer Marie-Claude Poulin and media-artist Martin Kusch. Their contemporary dance pieces, performative installations and responsive environments explore the possibilities of interaction and transformation between the physical environment and gesture and the electronically mediated re-presentations of movement and space. Both companies highlight models of networked and collaborative practice.
