Ivan Smith is an internationally acclaimed
and award-winning sculptor
As Artist in Residence at Derby College he had planned a one-week
exhibition at the Q-Arts gallery. The theme was the surveillance
society. Ivan built a performance space in the centre of the gallery.
He would live in this space 24 hours a day for a week.
Actionstream set up a 24/7 live
webcast which switched automatically between the outputs from
the monitors in the gallery, controlled by the visitors. This
enabled thousands of Internet viewers to experience the event.
Sponsors included the Henry Moore
Foundation, the University of Derby, Derby City Council and East
