Artists struggle but don’t starve in Second Life Rubina Reuters Rueters 4/13/07
“Dancoyote Antonelli (whose real-life name is DC Spensley) pioneered hyperformalism – an art movement that creates abstract art in the digital world.”
“‘I have been creating digital work for nearly two decades on faith that something like Second Life would appear as a proper forum for the work,’ Antonelli said in an interview at his Second Life gallery. ‘The Web, like TV, makes all things flat, equally null. … In SL, it is magically transformed into the fine art it was intended to be.’”
Visit Spensley’s museum of hyperformalism here. And more here from SLART, a critical review and journal of the arts in Second Life.
Plus, read how Paris residents are using Second Life to redesign a central area of the city here. And more on collaborative architecture in Second Life in this old post.
