WE ARE THE MEDIA!

The Third Space Network is an artist-driven Internet channel producing live creative dialogue and online performance created by Randall Packer. 3SN makes accessible the kinds of artworks and interactions that can only be derived from globally networked media that collapses the local and remote into a shared third space.

/// UPCOMING LIVE EVENTS ///

  • Networked Conversations

    Networked Conversations brings people together in live creative dialogue, our own alternative media where we debate the latest issues and break the news: all from a uniquely art & activist lens.

  • Raw Hope of Humanity Rising

    A series of public dialogues that address the political climate during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, in which hope is as raw as our democracy is faltering.

/// REPORTAGE ///

  • Reportage from the Aesthetic Edge

    Reportage from the Aesthetic Edge is my global megaphone, my virtual soapbox, where I can say what needs to be said without constraint. If there is a role for the artist, this is it.

  • The Post Reality Show

    Deep down in the Underground Studio Bunker, I embed myself in the 24/7 information torrent to perform a critique of its intoxication, disinformation, and disorientation.
