NOMAD-TV.NETWORK is a long-term project which aims to both observe and also establish links in the network that facilitates local digital culture. Digital minded communities, artists, musicians, architects, designers, engineers, cultural producers, magazines, initiatives, organizations, and parallel entities in Turkey contribute to make the network visible for the first time, in the first of a series of iterations in this ever-growing project. While establishing the local network on digital culture, the project will concoct local knowledge, expertise and mode of production with international connections. NOMAD establishes an online database for NOMAD-TV.NETWORK which is hosted by Siemens-Sanat, Istanbul. In collaboration with this network, special posters and objects of the project together with various publications are produced.
