The Durational Book Group is comprised of media artists Chris Caines and Megan Heyward, design researchers Zoë Sadokierski and Jacqueline Kasunic, and poet/essayist Astrid Lorange. While all five have well recognised individual practices, they are linked by an appreciation of the fertile interplay between forms and technologies, in particular that between text and graphic, audiovisual, networked and sculptural forms. The group was formed to explore the intersections and extensions afforded by interdisciplinary collaborative practice. During ISEA2013 (International Symposium for Electronic Art) the first iteration of the Durational Book project expanded the historical idea of the book to include forms of contemporary media: print media was mixed with audio-visual and interactive content. The group worked from the State Library of NSW's archive to generation of a variety of speculative works, investigating the library as a creative tool. During the week-long event, the artists added daily to a new archive of analogue and digital material, text, illustration, video and sound. This material will eventually form the content of an expanded `book'.
