Press: Another TV interview on Second Life

without comments

You may have noticed that I am working down a pile of press stuff. I hope it is not anoying to watch all these Second Life reports but this time I am showing the “First Person Shooter” glasses. The editor wanted me to take the counter part in the interview. The report is mainly about the Corecon Center run by Katja Schwab. The TV team ( three guys) from RBB had a lot of fun exploring the sex areas in Second Life. RBB “bizz” 26.2.07 ( german) , editor Jörg Oberwittler.

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.

OPENCITY exhibition NYC documentation

without comments

Eyebeam and the Graffiti Research Lab invited me to be part of the exhibition OPEN CITY which took place at Eyebeam in NYC from end of Feburary till mid of April 2007. The subtitle ‘tools for public action’ describes very well the graffiti background of the show which opened up to a broader field of actions in public space. All artists and artist groups did show different kinds documentations and tools of their work. Among some project documentations I had two workshop tables: one where visitors could build their own pair of “First Person Shooter” glasses and a second which served for a “WoW” workshop.

Check out my pictures and all open city tagged pictures of the exhibition on flickr.

Find some more documentation of the exhibition at GRL

Thanks to Evan who edited and posted the “WoW” movie documentation of him and me getting a coffee at Frank’s on 9th avenue.

Thanks to the whole Eyebeam team and to GRL:Evan and James for having me at this great show.
