Residency at Caerleon

From Creative Machinery

I am very glad to have a residency at the Virtual Art Initiative. I have a huge space at the Caerleon sims to work on a video installation or whatever I want.

Also I'm involved in the creation of machinima documenting an 8 month project of collaborative exploration of the fundamental dimensions that make the art of virtual worlds a unique aesthetic medium. Each of these dimensions - immersion, interaction, ambiguity of identity, environmental fluidity, artificial agency, and globally networked collaboration - is being explored in a collaboration of artists under the direction of a project leader lasting approximately six weeks.
The collaborations are being thoroughly documented in images, text, and machinima film, and will generate work that will be exhibited in the "real world" Harbor Gallery at the University of Massachusetts at Boston in April 2010.

The first dimension - immersion - is currently being explored by Bryn Oh, Glyph Graves and Nonnatus Korhonen, in the project Immersiva, an immersive interactive story telling performance.
