N00sphere Playground

N00sphere Playground at Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen, as part of Virtual Moves

VIRTUAL MOVES is a row of 4 international art exhibitions in SecondLife (SL) and at Statens Museum for Kunst (SMK) in Copenhagen organized by TAGGING ART. The aim of the exhibitions is to explore and challenge SL as a platform for artistic practice, a public space, and a cultural community and to discuss critically how SL affects our notion of reality. The set off is a critical point of view and experimental focus.

8 artists are invited to create a visually moving art piece each in which they consider SL as a platform for art and artistic interaction. The works are created especially for this event by Mogens Jacobsen (DK), Sachiko Hayashi (JP/SE), Nis Rømer (DK), Maria Lavman Vetö(SE), Annette Finnsdottir (DK/IS), Kristoffer Gansing and Linda Hilfling(SE/DK), Jan Northoff (DE) and Ida Grøn (DK/UK).

Virtual Moves is supported by the Danish Art Council.
The 4 openings take place in SL and SMK: 18th of January (through 29 January), 1st, 15 th and 29th of February 2008.

"N00sphere Playground" by Sachiko Hayashi
Mimicking the from of a sphere in a real-life playground, "N00sphere Playground" is an interactive sound installation in which a sphere of enjoyment is created through play and experience of sounds. Beneath its surface is an underlying notion of noosphere, closely related to Henri Bergson's "Élan Vital" and its role in evolution.
