Site-specific Bloc explored alternatives to the fixed, static or monumental sculptures that are often associated with public, site related art works. Via the internet new multi- site relationships are now possible.


This meeting discussed alternative notions of `site`, asking how does new technology feed into and challenge past site-specific assumptions and concepts. Site-specific Bloc also discussed the changing social relations that the internet generates.
