[Extract] Some time has passed since session #32 of the 3WDS online event. It is now June 2014 and #32 took place back in March. What kind of online event was this? That it might constitute a memory, experience or embodiment for an observer distanced by time and place. What form could this temporal separation take? There is no longer anticipation of the event unfolding—it has unfurled. Its occurrence has generated residue and traces. These are traces of difference and interpretation in the minds and experiences of individuals and communities involved. What is there to gain from the physicalisation of the residue cast by session #32 now? What is the nature of reenactment to a network performance? Replay or recast? The remains are only the attestation of the minds eye—memory transposed to abstract textual symbols—the filter of words. Can the act of writing about #32 claim a commensurate liveness? Already re-generational in re-mediation from the physical gesture of the instigating moment of the now—that was then. What can a distant witness contribute through the feebleness and fallacy of words but another instance of action—another embodiment of the moment?
