Chris Woebken, Sascha Pohflepp and Andreas Nicolas Fischer will spend their time on Governors Island commissioning a series of computer simulations that will run within a meticulous virtual recreation of Building 15. The individual simulations are being created by a selection of 3D artists who form part of a community that is exploring the aesthetics of simulation in the context of contemporary computer graphics, often disseminating their work on social media rather than in an academic context. These participating artists include:
Kai Kostack: youtube.com/user/KaiKostack
Mohamad (Moby Motion) Zeina: youtube.com/user/moby1toby
Andreas Nicolas (ANF6000) Fischer: anf.nu
Gottfried (BlenderDiplom) Hofmann: youtube.com/user/BlenderDiplom
Tayfun (blazraidr) Ozdemir: youtube.com/user/blazraidr
Island Physics will turn Eyebeam’s house on Governors Island into a testing-ground for alternate realities, simulating the impossible in a living room.
