performance for the The End of the World at Odyssey, 21.12.12, 1pm SLT.
in a virtual world, such as Second Life, creating things causes server load. Such load can lead to considerable time lag, or time dilation, affecting every movement inworld. in her performance, selavy oh will try to create as much as possible to slow down time.
if she succeeds, then the flow of time will stop and the end of the world will never come.
wish her luck.

site-specific installation for the UWA Centenary 3D Art Challenge. the work is completely invisible unless visitor communicate via Second Life chat. then, the typed text will appear as vertical column of letters, each 1m in height, above the speaker. since the main limitation for an entry to the show was the 110-prim limit, "silence, please" generates maximally 110 letters including blanks, which is pretty close to the twitter limit. as soon as the limit is reached, the letters fall down on the visitors and subsequently vanish.
unfortunately, the original version of the work, which affected visitors all over the exhibition, was not accepted and a modification was requested that restricted the range to a radius of 20m. the argument of the organizers was that the work was 'intrusive' and 'unfair to the other artists'.

"der schauer" is an evolving and ever-changing full-sim installation for my 5-month residency november 2011 - march 2012 granted by the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA), which attracted over 1000 visitors. the title is german and refers to both a shower (not taking a shower, but a rain shower, a shower of meteors, etc.) and the feeling of shivering. this installation has no static elements, everything is growing, falling, changing, or rising.
pictures from the location can be found at my flickr. machinima shot on location by jjccc Coronet in mid-december, by MimesisMonday end of december, by Mab MacMoragh end of december and mid-january and mid-february. Maddy Gynoid wrote a german blog post about the installation. "What's this art" recommends the installation on her blog. Another blog post by Honour MacMillan initially misunderstood the title to be "the spectator" and i have to admit that i don't mind. Dividni Shostakovich blogged "der schauer" together with oberon onmura's "wave fields" just one sim further.
