It certainly was fun! 15 artists, a sunny day, some wine and lots of art.
The Ma Machinima Salon 2016
On October 7, my new movie ‘Activate Your Higher Mind’ is premiering in San Francisco, California. The show is an exclusive event, if you want to attend you need to contact me so I can put you on the guest list. You are very welcome!
The film (machinima) is a one hour vision on Art in Virtual Reality, and perhaps a retrospect on 8 years in Second Life, but more so a very personal journey into the future.
Please send me an email (chantalharvey -at -outlook-dot-com) or personal message on Facebook, so I can put you on the guest list, and give you details about location and time.
Special thanks to Cathy and DC Spensley for hosting the Mamachinima Salon.
Rome 2016: Art, Friendship and Charlie
Rome, here I come!
I am traveling to Italy, to see the world debut of Ars Plastica projected live into Pied à Terre 37788, Rome the evening of July 4th, 2016.
The artist DC Spensley will be on hand to act as a guide. The application will be available for pubic download at www.arsplastica.xyz after July 5th.
If you are anywhere near, visit the expo and meet the artist, and say hi to me too!
This is not what it seems.
Ars Plastica, virtual world artwork and living ecosystem by DC Spensley
On the surface Ars Plastica is a downloadable virtual world, an experiential story about the remnants of an alien colony vessel discovered by an Earth exploration spacecraft. But Ars Plastica is also an exhibition of meta-sculptures, each a demonstration designed to engage the art viewer in reflexive and reactive experiences, nuances of what is generally considered “interactivity”.
To visit the sculptures requires the logged in art viewer to soar through an oxygen rich gas bubble wedged between stars far from our reality. On the way you will notice a world teeming with plant and animal life once intended to colonize and populate another planet. This is the story of a shipwreck, of invasive species, of a futile attempt at manufacturing homeostasis surrounding a catalog of artworks somewhere between inert and interactive.
Call Pied à Terre 37788, Rome (+39) 338 8.107.315 for information about informal evening guided tours on July 5th through 7th.
