"People inevitably approach it with a 'how could that be?' kind of a question, you know, 'how could a virtual world be real?' But I think in the years to come we'll realise that the question was more of just 'why not?'" —Philip Rosedale Character assigned: A woman who spends 20 hours per day creating virtual home decor, Asri Falcone The real life Asri, Read more →

"He's fake. And I'm real. And I'm hurt and he gets away scot-free. I want to get across that I'm a victim. And that doesn't mean I'm stupid, I believe he was really the person he presented himself to be but this is a silly notion on my part because... he's not real." - Amie Goode In Life 2.0, there are several characters who plays Read more →

its a shame. Amie came across as being very genuine. Plus I thought she was way too hot for Steven. She can do a hell of a lot better.

Nam June Paik was a notable video artist who helped ushered in the new development of electronic technology. Paik transformed literal representation of moving images to expressive elements. Formally trained in music and performance, Paik approached TV as an artistic tool to work around time-based art. “I think I understand time better than the video artist who came from painting-sculpture.

TV Brassiere for Living Sculpture (Charlotte Moorman) is one sharp example to humanize electronics … and technology. By using TV as bra … the most intimate belonging of human being, we will demonstrate the human use of technology, and also stimulate viewers, NOT for something mean, by stimulate their fantasy to look for the new, imaginative, and humanistic ways of using Read more →

(Kraftwerk LIVE in Singapore/ Image by Hoong Wei Long / All Rights Reserved The Esplanade Co Ltd.) How apt that we are looking at the idea of robots/cyborgs this week - the 2014 reboot (no pun intended) of Robocop just opened here over the weekend. It is of course just one of many movies in recent years that deal with the idea Read more →

#ossntu In relation to the Third Space, both works of art are exemplary in the investigation of the notion of intimacy and the evolution of technology. Catch-22 is that we are connected and alienated simultaneously. Intimate and isolating at the same time. The contemporary art embraces binary opposites and such marriage marks incredible milestone in art practice, as the role of an Read more →

[…] Annie Abrahams creates situations where people reveal things of themselves they normally don’t show, being real and acting out of what is normally accepted, referring to it as an “intimate moment”. The idea is that in such a situation, people invest their thoughts and emotions while conferencing in the third space. In retrospection, it pricks to pick on their performance, in The Kiss, both performers self-consciously gestured a kiss. A kiss and its various cultural connotations deconstructed in the third space.

For Stelarc, the human body is something that is just beyond the conventional image of being a passive entity. The body becomes much more than just a passive agent of flesh and blood. In his array of performance works, the human body takes on an active role of being a malleable medium and "Ping Body" is no exception to this. Read more →

The Power Station By the mid-1970s, Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for its revolutionary experimentation with sound and imagery. Its compositions, which feature distant melodies, multilingual vocals, robotic Beats, custom-made vocoders, and computer speech, anticipated the impact technology would have on art and everyday life, capturing the human condition in an age of mobility and telecommunication. Kraftwerk's innovative looping techniques and Read more →

 The musical cyborg of electro-pop KRAFTWERK Kraftwerk, a German electronic music band formed by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in 1970 maximizes the technological mediums of the 70s to craft an interesting  repetitive catchy electronic tunes that seem very robotic. In a way, they are even seen as pioneers of electro-pop music. Kraftwerk's uses music and lyrics to represent the post-war European Read more →

It is amazing that Stelarc created Ping Body in 1996, when the internet have yet to mold each person's identity as strongly as today's age with the social media.  Yet, it chillingly captured that state of the internet almost 2 decades later where everyone relies heavily or even developed an addiction for social media and internet. One element of this work Read more →

"The real implied issue in 'Art and Technology' is not to make another scientific toy, but how to humanize the technology and the electronic medium, which is progressing rapidly—too rapidly. Progress has already outstripped ability to program...TV Brassiere for Living Sculpture (Charlotte Moorman) is also one sharp example to humanize electronics...and technology.

"....The installation existed within the digital telephone network of the ISDN. Two separate interfaces were created and put into two separate locations, were they function as customised video conference systems.

"Hole in Space" opens the proverbial door into a world where Man makes contact with Man via this hole, which only exists in a virtual space. In the work, artists Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz created a portal, allowing people on the east coast and the west coast of the United States to communicate with each other in real Read more →

Telematic dreaming  presents an unique experience where audience can interact with the artist despite his physical absence. By implementing a live video conference with a projection onto a bed,  a third space is produced in the installation that connects people in 2 different locations together. In this case, 2 people lying on different beds are connected by the projection.  Judging Read more →
