TRACKINGSHOT investigates frontier spaces through art practice and cross-disciplinary research.

Trackingshot.1 Desert Sessions took place in the California Mojave Desert in April 2017

Over two weeks live artworks were broadcast daily from A-Z West directly to viewers desktop/mobile device as a transmitted interruption. Associate collaborators Chris Fite- Wassilak, Ellen Mara De Wachter and Jonathan Griffin contributed texts in response. All artworks and essays are archived and freely available via this website.

Enroute to the Mojave Desert, artists embarked on an investigative roadtrip to explore the relationship of the desert to the body, time and production. Artist field notes have been uploaded onto an online directory, as a performative test site for the production of 14 live broadcast artworks,
