4Jetpacks4 video at World Expo Shanghai

From Creative Machinery

I'm very honored that during the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai 4Jetpacks4 can be seen at the Madrid Pavillion as part of the Air Tree Exhibition.

The Air Tree, designed by Urban Ecosystems
is a self sufficient pavillion, where visitors can relax and enjoy performances or shows projected on the walls, in a nice cool breeze.

The show projected in Shanghai is curated by Cristina Garcia-Lasuen (aka Aino Baar), who initiated OPEN THIS END, a nonprofit cultural organization that classifies, develops and exhibits contents generated with new technologies.

The program consists in three exhibitions that present the theoretical classification of the three types and stages of the present video art:
Real (think projection in Real Space, for example the work of Rafael Lozano hemmer)
Virtual (cgi, for example Joaquin Baldwin
Machinima (movies recorded with game engines, like Evo Szuyuan :-) )

Up until now more then 2 million people have visited the Madrid pavillion, making it the most visited pavillion of the World Expo.

Many thanks and congratulations to Cristina / Aino !

Machinima Exhibition at QUT

From Creative Machinery

9 of my videos will be part of a machinima exhibition at the Queensland University of Technology.

"QUT presents a unique exhibition devoted entirely to machinima.
The exhibition features an historical timeline of machinima works with over 60 examples on display; from the first clunky DIY video game films created using games like Quake and Doom in the mid-90s, to contemporary film and artworks by internationally acclaimed artists like Friedrich Kirschner."

The exhibition will take place from 20 July to 7 August 2010 at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.
