18 april: Boom Pearls – Understanding art in online spaces

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, Hannoversche Straße 3, Berlin, and online at Boom Pearls in Second Life,

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 after a while.

MaMachinima International Festival

PLANETART, Wibautstraat 150, Amsterdam (NL) + RastaViews sim (SL)

‘MMIF 2009′ is the first edition of an annual global film festival in cyberspace and simultaneously in Amsterdam (NL). In Amsterdam MMIF 2009 will happen at the very last day of the ‘Dadamachinima’ media-art exhibition by PLANETART about avant-garde videogame modification, started 18 December 2008.

The MMIF is initiated by the Dutch filmer Chantal Harvey. The MMIF is a celebration of machinima: a new cinematic art form, created with 3D virtual worlds and online computergames. All the actors (avatars) are individually operated real-time by real people while movie scenes are directed and recorded. On 3D web platforms like Second Life, directors can even build complete movie sets for relatively low costs. MMIF 2009 aims to bring machinima to a wider audience, online and offline.

Over forty short machinima films are screened at MMIF 2009, from all over the world. Machinima created wih all 3D web platforms and online games are welcome.

At the MaMachinima Theatre in Second Life, the artists and directors from many countries will be present in real time to talk about their creations. And to meet other machinimatographers and an international audience online.

The audience in Amsterdam can view the machinima films live via Second Life on a big screen at the auditorium of the PLANETART artspace in the former Volkskrantbuilding.

Free wireless internet and electricity provided for audience laptops.
