ABOUT MIXED REALITIES
is an international networked art exhibition that explores the convergence
— through cyberspace — of real and synthetic places made possible by computers
and networks. Mixed Realities links and overlays the Huret
& Spector Gallery (Boston), Turbulence.org, and Ars
Virtua (Second Life).
Second Life is a shared, synthetic, 3-D environment through which people can interact in real-time by means of a virtual self or avatar.
Audience members — who are embodied as avatars in Second Life, browsing the works at turbulence.org, and/or physically present in the Huret & Spector Gallery — interact with the works and with one another. Thus, Mixed Realities enables people who are distributed across multiple physical and virtual spaces to communicate with one another and share experiences in real time.
The five works in the exhibition were commissioned by New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. specifically for Mixed Realities. An international competition was juried by Yasmine Abbas, Founder, Neo-Nomad; Michael Frumin, Technical Director Emeritus, Eyebeam; James Morgan, Director, Ars Virtua; Trebor Scholz, Founder, Institute for Distributed Creativity; and Helen Thorington, Co-Director, Turbulence.
