Subject: RHIZOME_RAW: Virtual Opening of "The Real"
Ars Virtua Gallery & New Media Center invites the public to the opening
of it's inaugural show entitled "The Real."
The event will be held on the grounds of Ars Virtua which can be found
in the 3d rendered
world of Second Life.
Six artists are represented in this show which examines the nature of
observation, movement, communication, contact, and fetish in the virtual
environment of the avatar.
These investigations form the basis of questioning what is real, they go
beyond the experience of the user at the keyboard to reference that
similar and familiar experience of the driver behind the wheel. The
metaphor remains consistent between the two. The answers we arrive at
are not surprising and are no more profound than the pen on your desktop.
The show runs from April 28 through June 23, 2006 with the opening and
artist's reception at 7pm SLT (Pacific Daylight Time) on April 28.
