“Virtual Body Language” by Jeffrey Ventrella

Virtual Body Language: The History and Future of Avatars: How Nonverbal Expression is Evolving on the Internet by Jeffrey Ventrella:

Why does the tail wag the brain? What is virtual autism? Why can’t our avatars walk hand-in-hand? Will a nonverbal Babel fish save the world? Jeffrey Ventrella, a seasoned virtual worlds programmer and visual language expert, reviews the history of avatars, smileys, and other expressive forms, and considers a future of spectacular creativity. This book combines thoughtful scholarship with amusing anecdotes from the trenches of Silicon Valley. Virtual Body Language presents a thorough analysis of the neurological, linguistic, aesthetic, and technical aspects of how nonverbal communication can be distributed over the internet. Based on nearly a decade of avatar development, Ventrella has the practical foundation on which to justify even the most outrageous claims, regarding what “avatar” might mean in the future.

Digital Inflections: The Einstein’s Brain Project

CTheory Interview: Digital Inflections: The Einstein’s Brain Project — Alan Dunning and Paul Woodrow in conversation with Ted Hiebert:

“[B]odies are never event bound and event defined, but event defining — and always at the point of becoming. This is a continual shudder across our work — the body as an ever-receding event horizon. A hole in the fabric of the world, a non-alibi, a white hole.”Einstein’s Brain Project

Introduction: What does the world look like when we turn out the lights? Does it not first surprise us — not with nothingness but with a dance of after-images which, fading, are transformed into patterns of visual noise? Continue reading

Live Stage: The Real Real Thing [us Philadelphia]

The Real Real Thing: Wendy Steiner in Conversation :: February 3, 2011; 6:30 pm :: Slought Foundation, 4017 Walnut Street, Philadelphia PA.

Our culture is fixated on the pose, the state of existing simultaneously as artifice and the real thing. In this reading and conversation, Penn literary scholar Wendy Steiner discusses her latest book, The Real Real Thing: The Model in the Mirror of Art. Joining Steiner in conversation are Jeffrey E. Green, Jim English, and Jean-Michel Rabaté. A book signing will follow.

Why do so many contemporary visual artists use models — often themselves — when for much of the twentieth-century, explicitly model-based representation was relatively uncommon? What is a model, and what role do models play in the creative process? Continue reading
