Ricardo Dominguez wrote on -empyre-: In order to maximize impact and attempt to gain visibility for nameless, anonymous, stateless, non-represented global citizens at the Venice Biennale, we have decided to conduct a virtual sit-in to augment our flash-mob to be conducted on June 4 2011.
YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE VIRTUAL SIT-IN ON THE WEBSITE OF THE VENICE BIENNALE BY DOWNLOADING THE ZIP FILE ATTACHED, SAVING THE 4 SMALL FILES ON YOUR COMPUTER, AND OPENING THE FILE ENTITLED INDEX.HTML IN YOUR BROWSER (MOZILLA, INTERNET EXPLORER)
- THEN GO TO “ENTER THE E-PERFORMANCE ACTION NOW”
- HIT OK
- ADJUST SPEED ACCORDING TO INTERNET CONNECTION
- LEAVE BROWSER OPEN AND COMPUTER ON ALL DAY STARTING AT 10:00AM CEST JUNE
This will essentially overload the Venice Biennale’s website with traffic and is completely legal, and will serve to underscore the importance of our cause in a more direct and obvious way. Please find attached another zip file containing project manifesto, images, and texts in Italian and Spanish. Also help spread the word and feel free to pass this email around to relevant eyes!
For those participating in the actual flash-mob action in Venice in the coming days please stay in touch and we support all your actions (there are many of us!!!)
