Feed Lack Loop
Feed Lack Loop arose out of experiments with the idea of Feedback. Using a live performer and an Avatar in the Online World Second Life, Micheál O'Connell inquires whether the concept of interactivity, so lauded in contemporary culture, is about Empowerment or possibly leads to its opposite: Control. Also liveness, or lack of it, in virtual space is brought into question. The event will be situated in two spaces simultaneously, Ars Virtua Gallery in Second Life and as a live projection and performance at Lighthouse. Other relevant pieces by the same artist may be incorporated or displayed.
Collaborators on the project are:
-Ars Virtua Director: Rubaiyat Shatner (a.k.a. James Morgan)
-Artist and Grey Area Curator Daniel Pryde-Jarman
-Film Director and Script Writer: Partho Sen-Gupta
-Performer: Naughty the Clown (a.k.a. Dave Thompson)
-Lighthouse Head of Media Arts: Jamie Wyld
There will be an artist's talk and opportunity for Questions and Answers during the event. The bar will be open for refreshments.
O'Connell asks you to "Bear in mind that this could all change, change utterly, before Thu 6 Mar 2008. And probably will. Feel free to steal the idea".
