Turbulence Commission: "Ars Virtua Artist-in-Residence (AVAIR): Brad
Opening on April 20 at midnight (SLT), and April 21 at noon (SLT)

"AVAIR"--a project of James Morgan, Amy Wilson and Jay van Buren--is an
extended performance whose purpose is to investigate the nature of art
making in the 3D synthetic environment of Second Life
(http://secondlife.com). It is an examination of policy and institution, as
well as a reflection on place and art. Artists are given a stipend and
technical support. They are expected to have an open studio, produce an
exhibition, and make a public presentation. Their methodologies are
documented at http://turbulence.org/AVAIR. Orchestrated through the classic
structure of the gallery, the performances run at any time of the day or
night, and create a platform for exchange between artist and audience. 

Brad Kligerman, Ars Virtua's (http://arsvirtua.com/) first AIR, is winding
down his 11 week tenure. He is fabricating three machines capable of
extracting in-world data pertinent to discovering the rules of materiality
inherent to Second Life: (1) the Calibration Machine for reading the world;
(2) the Analogy Machine for learning about it; and, (3) the Mutation Machine
for writing, inventing and transforming it. His exhibition will consist of
interactive hyper-spaces made of images, ideograms and holograms. Join us
for the opening on April 20 at midnight (SLT), and April 21 at noon (SLT).
