february 2007 : presentation of the work done during the diploma at at the academy of media arts cologne
the work was partly presented in the galery-space in cologne and in the keenag-galery in secondlife.
i was working for more than six months to develop some ideas and experiments with and in the secondlife.com-world. the focus of the work was not only secondlife as the virtual space itself.
the problems and question of the technological generated immaterial is one of the threads of my work. so idecided to implement this in my diploma-exhibition:
no art-objects! no physical artefacts!
i have to admit, there is still no way to present the stuff without a heavy bunch of technical devices, like pc, beamer, fotoframes, flatscreens, etc.
after thinking about technology or better parts of the problems of computertechnology - which is used to generate the virtual world - i believe afirmation is the only way to handle the technological created immaterial.
every other attitude must lead to the tracks of Theodore John "Ted" Kaczynski, if it is thought to its last consequence ...
questions about copyright/copyleft, about the worth of the virtual, supersurveillance and the poltical and social implications of cyberworlds are big issue, which have been handled by us now and in the future.
take a look at some images from the exhibition-space.
