Experience with the AETHER9 group has been pretty good specially because playing with sound, video and communication we meet from far places and construct somme ideas in the outer net space, virtual construction, virtual storytelling, different languages and the same inmaterial space to create in groupe.

This is how it is explain in the main AETHER web page:

Initiated in May 2007 during a workshop at the Mapping Festival in Geneva, Switzerland, Æther9 is a collaborative art project exploring the field of realtime video transmission.

Developed by an international group of visual artists and collectives working in 9 different locations (dissminated in Europe, North and South America) and communicating solely through the Internet, Æther9 intends to become a functional framework for collaborative video performance.
