I’m presenting documentation of Becoming Dragon in this show. Come out and see it Thursday night if you’re up in LA at CAA! I created a new installation using the chat logs from the performance. Come check it out! You can also attend the opening and the exhibition in Second Life at Ars Virtua.
Concurrent with the New Media Caucus panel Space: The New Frontier at the National CAA 2009, “@” is an exhibition that examines space and site.
With simultaneous locations in Los Angeles and Second Life (SL), “@”challenges artists to consider place & placelessness from within the context of networked culture.
The physical gallery space will be replicated within SL, featuring an actual window between the virtual and real worlds to observe and be observed.
The exhibition space will feature a floor-to-ceiling projection and a streaming video camera. This wall will serve as the interface between the Real Life (RL) in the gallery and its replication in Second Life.
The intent for “@” is to exploit the philosophically rich mirroring between RL and SL, as well as the paradoxical condition of being the observer and observed.

In 1946 the first photograph of the earth was sent back from outer space.
This moment in history, where technology allowed us to view beyond our
senses marks the transition to what has been dubbed the era of the
posthuman. This era, our era, is an era that like the Renaissance period
is built upon our changing conceptions of space. The Renaissance, with its
one point perspective created new perceptions for the work of art, and the
post human era, with its onmicient point of view creates new
understandings and problematizes ideas of space. It is through our
understanding of space that we can begin to understand the implications of
the limits and boundaries of our senses and our technologies. This panel
seeks to address how the change of our perceptions of space has been
influenced by technology and furthermore, how that change is affecting the
way we practice, create¬† and view the work of art. Whether an artist uses
Google earth or the spatial language of the video game, the art practice
has changed in the way it explores space through our technologies and as
such has changed our understanding of the phenomenal world.
