Synergy is collaboration.Synergy is the section of SITO that houses all of the collaborative art projects. The collaborative art projects on SITO are designed to integrate input from multiple sources into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Thus the monniker Synergy.
Collaboration. Community.These projects have been a very important part of SITO from the beginning. Our first collaborative art projects took place through email and FTP. As the World Wide Web became more widely accessible, we developed projects specifically for that medium. One of the core principles of the SITO collaborative process has been that of "community". Artist-participants (articipants) are strongly encouraged to communicate with one another by any means available. Every project is linked to a communication method. We chat, we email, we post to public message boards. The projects themselves play out like visual conversations.
