The seminar rooms, studios, and labs of the Department of Digital Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna – like almost all spaces of public life – were abandoned from mid-March 2020. In this time we searched for new strategies in our artistic production and education, which conceive this isolation as a productive substance. Under the umbrella title remote sandbox, we developed collaborative works and solo projects, which were not dependent on a shared physical space. Among them are works that influence one another as data streams, automated art processes that take place regardless if someone is watching or not, and performative encounters that try to fathom the conditions needed for community in isolation.

The installation remote sandbox: manifest couples these works for combined reception. The artistic processes in a virtual, placeless and timeless collaborative space are released from the web into real space and translated into a 30-minute audiovisual choreography.
