I can’t let go of my mind the concept of cyber-renaissance of ancient myths since I’m working with Morlita Quan in Tir Na Nog project. Maybe is because of this that this work in progress rose, inspired in Saint George’s legend, has a bit of cyber style…

The Robotic Wars

Featured

The Robotic Wars at BURN2.

Central Archives of the United States of the Earth
(Mod. version)

File: #6B-138
ROBOTIC WARS
Keyworkds: Human Peace, Geneva Convention, coltan mines, Congo Crisis, Conspiracy Replicant, Lumbre Ras

Inspired in sci-fi disaster films of wars between humans and machines, this virtual artistic intervention for the BURN2 represents to be a recorded audiovisual piece related to the Robotic Wars of the “Central Archives of the United States of the Earth” mentioned in the book Tears in Rain, by Rosa Montero (international Spanish writer and journalist). In fact, as observes, we are playing the role of a copy-editors editing and preserving a part of the past inside a virtual reality displayer in Madrid 2109.

In the book, there’s a conspiration to break the peace between replicants and humans. Yiannis Liberopoulos, copy-editor of the “Central Archives of the United States of the Earth” and one of the main characters of the book, discovers that someone is hacking these files to change history to discredit replicants. So, we can’t know if what we are watching in this installation is a real recorded past scene of the Robotic Wars or if it’s a manipulated version.

ANIMAL ROBOTS and THE PRIM-PEOPLE

Robots are inspired in invertebrates as robotic space investigation ones as well as in Star Wars ones.

I’ve chose to use what I call “the prim-people” across TEARS IN RAIN project to represent the basic shape of humans, aliens and replicants (that have cat eyes as in Montero’s book) in the most simple unit of construction in virtual worlds. It’s other way to express evolution from simplicity to complexity inside the hole context of this cross-lands intervention.

Where and how to visit The Robotic Wars?

In the Rabit Hole island of Burning Man in Second Life until 4th of November. Landing point to The Robotic Wars:

*This exhibit grows each day, as a living organism, again playing over the concept of from simple to complex evolution, so visitors can follow changes each day.

**Recommended:

  1. Compatible viewer with mesh objects as Second Life last viewer and Firestorm
  2. Sky Settings: night and sunset
  3. To activate “Lights and Shadows” in Preferences/ Graphics/ Advanced

Lacrime nella pioggia - I BRUNA, I REPLICANT (Imparafacile insland)

Call to participation: “I BRUNA, I REPLICANT”, virtual garden of readers of Rosa Montero’s Tears in Rain.

Algunos escritores pueden convertirse en creadores de mundos, estimulando nuestro imaginario colectivo con vidas que podemos vivir sin vivirlas en realidad, inspirando nuestra creatividad. Eso es lo que me ha pasado con mi escritora musa de estos últimos meses, la gran Rosa Montero (periodista y escritora española internacional), con su Bruna Husky y su universo Lágrimas en la lluvia.

Y… ¿qué puede ser más hermoso para un escritor que sentir la retroalimentación positiva de sus lectores? Especialmente en un momento como el actual, donde lo digital y las redes sociales permiten una mayor interactividad.

Hace unos días empecé a pensar en esto, como lectora y creativa, para agradecerle de alguna manera toda la ayuda prestada en mi visión surrealista de sus Lágrimas en la lluvia (no todos los autores están tan abiertos a versiones liberales de sus obras como Rosa).

De aquí la idea de hacer un jardín virtual de lectores que se expondrá como parte de mi instalación artística virtual Tears in rain en Second Life. Pero sin tu inestimable colaboración, no puede crecer el jardín de lectores!

Por eso…

Participa en “I BRUNA, I REPLICANT”, el Jardín Virtual de Lectores de Lágrimas en la lluvia, de Rosa Montero

“Yo BRUNA, Yo REPLICANTE”, Jardín Virtual de Lectores de Lágrimas en la lluvia, de Rosa Montero
¿Quieres formar parte de una ciber-intervención artística basada en Lágrimas en la Lluvia, de Rosa Montero? Comparte tu foto-retrato con la famosa línea tatuada de Bruna Husky en el mural de Rosa en Facebook hasta el 1 de noviembre y participarás en un jardín virtual en Second Life hecho de imágenes de los lectores caracterizados como la famosa detective replicante.

No importa que la foto sea en blanco y negro o color, de la cara o de otra parte del cuerpo donde Bruna tiene tatuada la línea o que esté retocada con Photoshop o no, mientras la calidad sea buena y se trate de una imagen original. La única condición es ¡que se vea la línea tatuada!”

Comparte tu “Yo BRUNA, Yo REPLICANTE” foto en el mural del Facebook de Rosa aquí:

Si eres usuario de Second Life, también puedes enviar el retrato de tu avatar. Contacta con Simba Schumann,de Arte Libera, o conmigo para conseguir el tatuaje de la línea Bruna gratis para tu avatar a utilizarlo para esta propuesta.

Recuerda enviar tu foto, no un dibujo! (Animales y fotografías de avatares de Second Life con la línea de tatuaje también se permiten).

IMMERSIVE WOR(L)DS – VIDEO PART 2: lecture and artists

Featured

This is the second video about the opening of IMMERSIVE WOR(L)DS, event organized in Second Life by the groups Libriamo Tutti and Arte Libera and the Brera Academy (Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan, Italy), where we can see and hear some bits of the books that inspired our exhibits (artists exhibits) for the project read vividly during the visit by:

  • ALEXANDRA SHEPHERD, passage of “Narciso e Boccadoro” (Hermann Hesse) for “L’OPPOSTO E IL SUO COMPLETAMENTO”, by Giovanna Cerise.
  • HELENITA ARRIAGA, passage of “Il pozzo e il pendolo” (Edgar A. Poe) for “IL POZZO E IL PENDOLO”, by Nessuno Myoo.
  • SIMBA SCHUMANN, passage of “Lacrime nella pioggia” (Rosa Montero) for “LACRIME NELLA PIOGGIA”, by Noke Yuitza.

Description of the event

Words and Worlds are the themes that form the backdrop of the event that Libriamo Tutti and the Brera Academy, in collaboration with IF2012 Imagine the Future, organized Saturday, June 30, at 10:30 am, at the Napoleonico hall of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera.

WORDS: because we asked some digital artists to create works of art, inspired by literary works.

WORLDS: because, to admire the works of art, we have put in connecting virtual worlds and physical worlds, by talking avatars who populated the virtual headquarters of the Academy of Brera in Second Life, with lovers of art and literature that have instead met in the physical location of the Academy.

A partnership between literary art and figurative art that has found its meeting point in the use of new technologies offered by the Internet, to stimulate sharing and interaction, eliminating the gap between artists, readers and viewers.

During the meeting, the reading of texts and stories has been integrated with the artistic exploration and discovery, the images are intertwined canceling spaces, dialogue developed between concrete spaces and web platforms.

What art wants

Quote

In my own version of the idea of ‘what art wants,’ the end and fulfillment of the history of art is the philosophical understanding of what art is, an understanding that is achieved in the way that understanding in each of our lives is achieved, namely, from the mistakes we make, the false paths we follow, the false images we have come to abandon until we learn wherein our limits consist, and then how to live within those limits.
