The New Media Center and Gallery in Dowden ( 27, 46, 52 ) is hosting an exhibition on the theme of Transposition - the translation of data from one form to another.
Curated by Servo Quatro and directed by Rubaiyat Shatner, the show brings together international Information Artists, with links to websites of their work from the gallery. - also you can check out www.arsvirtua.com
I'm chuffed to have my phonic installation as part of the exhibition. It is a development from my DNA sculpture - which changes the avatars' key into a musical phrase. This is played as part of a group installation of sound emitters, that creates a harmony of avatar's keys, musically representing an evolving community.
The focus of the piece is the Sound, so the sound emitters are parred back visually, to simple upright glowy soundcones. We generally, as an audience read the visual element first and give that greater meaning, when presented with an audio/visual work. Something I want to explore further is sound and its presence in the 3D space of Second Life.

in the adjacent gallery space. This is an exciting intervention project, that involves Second Life Residents, centered around conversations.
