18 april: Boom Pearls – Understanding art in online spaces


http://www.boompearls.com/?page_id=332

Press release, talks on Boom Pearls in Second Life


Saturday april 18, at 18 – 21 (gmt+1) four positions for understanding art in online spaces as Second Life (SL) will be presented to discuss how art practice in an online world is part of Real Life (RL) and the art world. The talks is part of the curated series Boom Pearls and can be seen offline at YOUin3d.com, Hannoversche Straße 3, Berlin, and online at Boom Pearls in Second Life, http://slurl.com/SecondLife/Phyllira/169/139/90.

Tommy Støckel and Pernille With Madsen both participate with art projects in Boom Pearls.
Jan Northoff and Joachim Stein both uses SL for media productions without necessarily seeing it as part of the art world.



Tommy Støckel will talk about his practice. For this project he considered how an artistic practice can be carried out in SL, where the content of the virtual world is build by the users. His installation, Primitives Collection Field (2007), consisted of freebies build by other users in SL, thereby focusing on what makes SL different from the rest of the world.


Pernille With Madsens installation Endless Structure (2009), which can still be seen, is inspired of the vertigo experienced in the meeting with reality and different constructions or architecture. The possibility to emerge in her scripted construction is another example of artworks by participating artists who are all new in SL. With Madsen will talk about her projects in and outside SL.

Jan Northoff is one of the two founders of newBERLIN, a true to scale interpretation of the german capital in SL. After working with sculpture and massive installations in Real Life, he created a virtual city with a living community of Citizens Friends and Creators of the online international melting pot. So he also invites artists to catch up with the latest 3D realtime technology and online art scenes.

Joachim Stein will talk about the Terms of Service as basis for practice in Second Life. Stein is an experimental thinker and artist, who challenges concepts of reality, play and work. He improvises and constructs narratives by doing what seems absurd and by using found situations and constellations. In 2007 Stein initiated and helped realize a TV documentary about people’s lives in Second Life. During Ars Electronica 2007 he provided workout, diet and medication plans that helped people achieve their Second Live avatar’s body in real life. In his latest work he used Second Life as a tool for re-enacting and filming of a court trial about a copyright case he had provoked by deliberately using and altering a digital map without permission.

The talks will be documented and can be seen at boompearls.com after a while.
