Laboral art center opening: Gameworld, Labcyberspace, Feedback

without comments

Laboral is a new art center in Gijon, Spain dedicated to media culture. Before arriving there nobody really knew how big this place was. The goverment of the province Asturias put a lot of money into this project and I am curious how it’ll develop in the next years. I have been invited to the game art show “Gameworld” one of three huge exhibitions which opened all on the same day 30.3.2007. The other two shows are called “Labcyberspace” which is the outcome of a competitionl and “Feedback”. All show are running till 1.7.2007.
I am showing “First Person Shooter”, the DIY glasses and the “WoW” video. As a small WoW performance I did walk my name during the opening . I met a lot of new people and had a really good time. The opening was huge. My favorite project was the “Sheepmarket” by Aaron Koblin in the Labcyberspace show. 10.000 sheep drawn by amazon users, printed on paper are hanging on the wall. Fantasic!

See my flickr pics of all three shows.
