Live Stage: Crossing the Void II [Second Life]

simulate-ed.jpg[Image: Simulate Editions – unique and authenticated virtual art objects by Nathaniel Stern] Crossing the Void IIChris Ashley, Scott Kildall, Nathaniel Stern, Jon Coffelt, and Claire Keating :: Ten Cubed Gallery, Second Life :: Opening Receptions: January 31, 2008; 7 pm EST (4 pm SLT) and February 1, 2008; 3 pm GMT (7 am SLT).

Artists Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern have each been exploring performance and performativity in their archival prints. Kildall restages then remediates iconic performance artworks in Second Life, and Stern straps on a scanner appendage and battery pack, and performs images into existence; both processes produce art objects in the real world.

For Crossing the Void IIHaydn Shaughnessy’s new virtual space designed by New York architect Benn Dunkley – they were asked to produce unique virtual art works for sale in Second Life, which mirror their real life prints. In response, they created a series of “Simulate Editions”, where every ‘print’ is individually signed and numbered by hand, making each work ‘technically unique.’ The works are copy and modification protected, but also come with a resize script, so that the new collector/owner – and only them – can grow or shrink their purchase so as to fit into their SL space.

Limited virtual and real world editions of the works on display will be available for purchase at the show.

For North American guests, press previews and private viewings are encouraged between 9:00 am PST and 4:00 pm PST or you are welcome to attend the open public viewing and launch party from at 4:00 pm PST.

Chris Ashley is based in Oakland, California. He is in the IT department at Berkeley, University of California and is one of the few, if not the only artist, who focuses on the use of the html scripting language in the creation of art. Chris blogs a new html image everyday and has done so for five years. His work is exhibited in chronologies – months and years principally – and makes sense only as sequences of time.

Scott Kildall is a member of the Second Life performance group Second Chance. We are exhibiting a series of his work called Paradise Ahead. In it he has re-enacted in Second Life iconic moments from the history of contemporary art and then transposed those works into art on paper – so what you see in the gallery began in Second Life, took on a real life presence and is now back in Second Life.

Nathaniel Stern is originally from New York but now based in Dublin after establishing his reputation in Johannesburg as one of the leading emerging artists in South Africa. Originally an interactive media artist, lately Nathaniel has become the leading practitioner globally of scanner art. All the works you see were created through the use of a standard desktop scanner and Nathaniel’s movement in and around objects. He has exhibited in J.Burg, New York, Dublin and elsewhere and is in important collections – the Irish Contemporary Art Society, Hewlett Packard, Johannesburg Art Gallery, South African Broadcasting Corporation.

Jon Coffelt works with unusual media such as duct tape and vellum to create visual narratives around technology such as his descriptions of computer circuit boards. To achieve this he has worked with 3M to develop new color possibilities for tape and now uses that to create color poems that reflect his interest in technology and science.

Claire Keating is an Irish photographer who works with make-up artists to transform people into works of art, which she then photographs. She was trained in London but now lives in Kinsale. We exhibit her because he work treads an intriguing line between real and the suggestive.
