Abstract
In this article we present Akson, a web-based audiovisual (AV) environment for networked interaction and performance. As a result of research in the context of Braga Media Arts, part of UNESCO's creative cities network (UCCN), is documented why it was developed, its characteristics as a software that promotes networked artistic practice, as well as the tests performed. Taking advantage of the Internet's infrastructure, Akson allows the exploration of hundreds of devices scattered around the world and the study of the interface as an extension of the human gesture.
