„256²“ is a piece which I performed mid May 2007. Finally I found time to reedit the video documentation of this urban intervention.
Pics and more text at the project page.
In the movie I am marking with chalk the first sim (Second Life land unit, 1 simulator = 256m²) of NewBerlin at Berlin Alexanderplatz. The famous TV tower of Alexanderplatz is right in the middle of the virtual representation of Berlin which Tobias Neisecke and Jan Northoff started in Second Life a year ago. Today NewBerlin has at least 8 sims and is still growing.
Out Of Bounds
The first in a four-part exhibition series exploring how artists make work with and about video games, Out of Bounds is an exhibition investigating the architecture of game spaces. The exhibition will reflect upon how artists use game development software within their practice to comment upon the video game landscape, alongside our collective fascination with seeing what’s beneath the surface of both the games we play and the spaces we encounter on a daily basis.
Each exhibition in the series will be accompanied by a reading list of books that inspired the ideas behind the exhibition, as well as a number of books selected by the exhibiting artists that inform their practice, available to read within the gallery space.
With artworks from Aram Bartholl, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Alice Bucknell, Mario Mu, Rosa-Maria Nuutinen, Everest Pipkin, Amba Sayal-Bennett and Mathew Zefeldt, curated by Bob Bicknell-Knight.
