VIRTUAL WORLDS

Location:

Virtual world" in common sense, leads to the idea of a 3D environment, which seeks to resemble the real world. These worlds actually imitates the real world laws such as gravity, topography, communication, etc., creating alternative worlds to reality designed primarily for entertainment (such as, for example, computer games).
In recent years, however, we witnessed a massive growth in internet and the birth of many virtual worlds are beginning to depart from the rudimentary purpose of entertainment, evolving into real social networks of some importance (as is the case of Second Life).
Regardless of the objectives that have these worlds, its creation involves an area of contemporary art that should be encouraged, and in-depth study: 3D art creation.
With Aaron Oldenburg, Caterina Davinio, Gregoire Zabé, Henry Gwiazda. Jinson Joseph, Kevin Sarmiento, Laura Castanedo, Mark Skarek, Mi You, Olivier Ruellet, Patrick Millard, Silvestre Pestana, Gruppo Sinestético, Suguru Goto, Susanne Weigner e Tony Murray.

Sun Mar 14, 2010 00:00

UAVM Virtual Museum presents a open call for the "Virtual Woorlds" project to be launch by the 2th of April 2010.

"Virtual world" in common sense, leads to the idea of a 3D environment, which seeks to resemble the real world. These worlds actually reflect the real world laws such as gravity, topography, communication, etc., creating alternative worlds to reality designed primarily for entertainment (such as, for example, computer games).
In recent years, however, we witnessed a massive growth in internet and the birth of many virtual worlds are beginning to depart from the rudimentary purpose of entertainment, evolving into real social networks of some importance (as is the case of Second Life).
Regardless of the objectives that have these worlds, its creation involves an area of contemporary art that should be encouraged, and in-depth study: 3D art creation.
So, with this purpose, the UAVM Virtual Museum presents “Virtual Worlds” for artists all over the world to present their ideas about the subject. Dead line 14 Mars 2010.

BYTE SCRAPERS
UAVM Virtual Museum
3 October - 26 December 09

The cyberspace. A consensual hallucination, experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in all nations, by children who are being taught mathematical concepts. A graphic representation of data disregarding the banks of all the computers of the human system. An unthinkable complexity.
Lines of light not aligned in the space of mind, and nebulae constellations of data. As the city lights ...
William Gibson in Neuromancer (1984)

The dimension is cyberspace as a world inhabited by bodies consisting of intangible digital 'cells' with the matrix form of hypertext, can work with the body of a smart system that constantly readjust according to the information supplied to it. The liquidity associated with the solvency of the architectural presence materials of the building projects in these webs of platforms for digital networks that mimic the architecture of human neural networks through nodes and links, storing these nodules' digital cities', with the mapping linking the speed of light gigabytes of information. These 'fragments' may contain bytes in the form of cathedrals, cities never seen, records topographic surface of distant planets, reviewing of sacred spaces disappeared and visited by surfers planning journeys in the form of authentic ocean shipments of complexity ...
Hugo Ferrão Architecture in Cyberspace and the 'non places' inhabited by "men without qualities'

Speaking about digital is talking about "digital space", systems and forms that build networks. Is internet and the whole of their networks a huge universe of constellations, with real worlds, continents, oceans, cities and sky scrapers? How do artists see these worlds? As a mere tangle of wires and cables that physically connect computers by land and air, or a series of highways where vehicles travel at the speed of light carrying packets of information? And what is in the centers of these roads? Stations, simple issue / receipt or many virtual cities inhabited by beings?
This and much more represent the hidden world of the Internet in a network that extends endlessly around the world at a speed unstoppable.
