Fall 1998/Spring 1999
THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT
22 netcasts of temporal art presented by
Franklin Furnace in collaboration with
Pseudo Programs, Inc.

channelp.com or franklinfurnace.org

Franklin Furnace's first full season as a virtual presenting institution was entitled THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT, and it took place every other week on Fridays at 5:00 PM from September, 1998 to July, 1999 in collaboration with Pseudo Programs' performance channel, Channelp.com. Each artist received a total of six hours of pre-production time from Pseudo; this isn't very much time to produce a work of art, and so many of the netcasts are regarded by the artists as works in progress. Additionally, the "live" show included a "chat" feature which enabled viewers around the world to ask questions or make comments; this interactive feature is also not a component of these archival netcasts. With all of these provisos, I am nevertheless extremely proud of the work that was created by 22 artists hailing from as near and far as Brooklyn and Bucharest. Enjoy! --
