The Artistic Research Working Group met at PSi#24 in Daegu, Korea, with some of the members engaged in the process of performance and response present at the site - Julie-Ann Long, Olga Spyropoulou, Bruce Barton and Annette Arlander, while Cherie Samson, Ned McGowan, Göze Saner and Per Roar participated via Skype and Johanna Householder via email. Due to last minute cancellations there were some "broken links" in the chain of responses. The program was nevertheless packed and the conversations exciting. Old and new members of the working group joined some of the sessions: Ray Langenbach, Pilvi Porkola, Carolyn Deby, Kanta Kochar-Lindgren. The new mode of working tried out this year seemed promising and worth developing. The next task will be to consider how to deal with the aftermath: how some of these experiences could be archived and what questions they evoked.
