Beginning with the launch of Streaming Museum, the first international moving image gallery to be broadcast both in cyberspace and public space over seven continents simultaneously, Our Friends Are Electric celebrates how today’s cities are becoming connected through a network of urban screens. In a showcase of international urban screen initiatives beginning in January 2008, Our Friends Are Electric introduces the concept of urban screens to the Melbourne audience in the lead up to the 2008 Urban Screens Conference, 3-8 October. The series will include a range of international video art programs produced for outdoor screens around the world in addition to individual artist initiatives created from collective, worldwide contributions.
