On July 7 1456,  Joan of Arc is acquitted of heresy, 25 years after her death. On July 7 1928, the Chillicothe Baking Company sells sliced bread for the first time. On July 7, 1954, Elvis Presley makes his radio debut in Memphis with “That’s All Right”.

On July 7 2012, Tethervision launched their latest series live at Primary in Nottingham and broadcast live online.

The event featured a performance from London-based artist David Raymond Conroy alongside a newly developed work from Internet, an artist collective whose members include Siân Robinson Davies & Diego Chamy.

Alongside the performances, we screened Video Show curated by Chris Coombes, Simon Raven presented his long awaited DJ set and Tether served a specially developed cocktail.

”What I hope is to evoke the idea that maybe it is all a fake, or a performance, like the things I’m talking about, but that is a peculiarly sharp way to get to something with which we can empathise.”*

The event was broadcast live online from YouTube, Saturday 7 July, 8pm BST.
