Kritical II and ISEA2009

You might have caught me twittering on about ISEA lately - its the International Symposium on Electronic Art, and this year its exhibition and conference is a bit closer to home in Ireland. I've been part of a collaborative show based in Second Life for the last two years, organised by WanderingFiction Story.
I'm exhibiting two pieces - ( machinima below ) and presenting a paper on the 29th August at the Golden Thread Gallery in Belfast, as part of a panel on Dialogic Exchanges for Virtual Curation.

The exhibition begins from the 7th August - till the end of the Month, and the SL show will stay up for a bit longer. SLURL here ->

This piece turns avatar height into musical notes, inviting the audience to social play and shapeshifting of one's avatar. The Machinima shows an Improvisation by Avatar Orchestra Metaverse, who did a wonderful performance to demonstrate how the Installation works, and also how it can integrate into their own work.

This is the complete installation I've been working on for a while - complete with growing Trees and immersive music. It requires four avatars to make it work, coming together in the Cloud Generating Matrix to create rain, starting a cycle of Forest Growth.
