<nettime-ann> Yoshikaze "Up-In-The-Air" SL Residency

Second Life artist-in-residency: Yoshikaze "Up-In-The-Air"

Yoshikaze is an artists' studio in Second Life, run by Goodwind Seiling/Sachiko Hayashi with support from Humlab, Umeå University, Sweden. Its main activity is to provide SL-Artist-In-Residence (Up-in- the-air Residency). The residency is project based and can be applied to throughout the year. The artist is expected to give at least one presentation of the project at the end of the residency. The residency length is normally 1-3 months.

Our first artist-in-residence: Alan Sondheim:


"Well/Brane is both installation and performance space. with the former, I want to extend the idea of "negotiated space," a space in SL that is inherently uncomfortable, impossible to move through....The basic concept is that, within the space, one is utterly lost, among the 'alien.'

1. To further explore dance/choreographic/behavioral issues in SL.
2. To further explore these within complex negotiated environments.
3. To explore media-modified environments with contradictory video/ audio materials.
4. To explore narratologies and performances in these environments.
5. To relate all of this to a developing philosophy of difference and contradiction."
