MANIFESTO :: Our Artistic Mission

Location One: Catalyst for Content and Convergence
This is our credo:

1. First, the Internet will be about content,
not just serve as a conduit for it. The nature of the technology changes content%u2014not just access and distribution%u2014with implications across the full range of artistic expression and subject matter.

2. Second, Location One is about convergence.
We are bringing together creativity along the two standards that have governed the history of human expression: the axis of expressive discipline and the axis of available technology.

3. Third, Location One is a catalyst.
We select talent, stimulate interaction, supply resources, and provide real and virtual forums. We enable things both cool and consequential to happen. New media transform artistic expression. Conventional barriers of time and distance are erased. With them depart a myriad of social, political and cultural distinctions. Access, distribution, participation become universal (and affordable).

4. Creative alternatives proliferate.
