Please click the link below to see one of the most outstanding contributions to virtual art/machinima that I have seen to date, The Chalkroom, by Laurie Anderson. Thank you moonie, for making me aware of it.
Explore Laurie Anderson’s ‘Chalkroom’ – a new artistic discovery in virtual reality – and learn what it feels like to navigate through an exciting universe of drawings and stories while flying around disembodied and free.
There is a new exhibit, Illogism, by ChimKami, curated by Ux Hax and Romy Nayar, at MetaLES, that opened to the public yesterday. I could unfortunately not attend due to RL commitments, but was lucky enough to have received a sneak-peek preview a few days before. Let me tell you, if there was ever an upside-down world that made sense to me, it would be this one! First-time exhibitor Chim is off to an excellent start with this work, combining her 55 photographs as well as objects, poses and movement to produce an exhilarating whole. Visitors are encouraged to fly or use the Walker HUD for optimal experience; with it you can walk up walls and generally get a sense of being upside down and have a tilted and overall quite mesmerizing experience. I also adore the colors used in this installation; integrated with the rest, it simply leaves one smiling and feeling happy. See above for the machinima of this exhibit, put together by Tutsy Navarathna; it captures the installation so beautifully. Bravo to all for your contributions to this exhibit. It will be open until the end of February, head over before it is too late.
Tutsy Navarathna has put together a machinima of the recent opening at Penumbra at Berg by Nordan Art that is nothing short of astonishing. The clever editing, combined with the gentle Indian composition Bombay Dreams by A.R. Rahman, beautifully capture the magic of the installation by Meilo Minotaur and CapCat Ragu. I know you will fall in love with this little film just like I did.
