Liminality describes the nature of being “in-between”; neither here nor there - or perhaps here and there. This exhibition explores the nature of liminality though examining work from the virtual world, Second Life, and its dialogues with issues of physicality via an exhibition at Antena Gallery, Chicago and on I Am Columbia Island in Second Life. The show will include objects, mixed reality performance, video, print and virtual installation in either physical, virtual or mixed-reality forms. What is the nature of art when it emerges in virtual worlds, and what happens when it attempts to emerge into physicality, and vice versa? What is the nature of presence in virtual art? How does it make us feel? This is the aim of this exhibition.
CALL FOR WORKS:
Artists working in Second Life are welcome to submit works for this exhibition. All works, from objects (print, sculpture, installation), media (video, machinima), live art (performance), and virtual installation are welcome. Artists are invited to send documentation and specifications for installation (physical or virtual) in the form of image, media or text. Media are limited only to those that can be transferred to the curator by any means. Artists will be responsible for shipping and insurance for all works.
