    1 November 2010 Virtual Art filmed in Second Life® at Angewandte Dialogue pleated by Mab MacMoragh from Roy Ascott's visionary 1990 essay 'Is There Love in the Telematic Embrace?' (Please pause if video runs too fast to read) Second in a series; the first can be seen here along with more info: http://vimeo.com/14690122 LPDT2: Roy Ascott Programming and Architecture: Selavy Oh Architecture and Terrain: MosMax Hax (Max Moswitzer) Avatars and Soundscape: Alpha Auer, Alpho Fullstop and alpha.tribe (Elif Ayiter) Avatar Animations: Frigg Ragu (Heidi Dahlsveen) i-DAT: University of Plymouth, UK Simulator Host: University of Applied Fine Arts, Vienna LPDT2 was projected to Real Life throughout September 2010 in Incheon, South Korea during the Incheon International Digital Art Festival (INDAF) 2010 in Tomorrow City, Songdo. 'LPDT2 : The Second Life of La Plissure du Texte' is the Second Life® incarnation of Roy Ascott's groundbreaking new media art work La Plissure du Texte ('The Pleating of the Text'), created in 1983 and exhibited at the Musee de l'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. The title of the project, 'La Plissure du Texte: A Planetary Fairy Tale,' alludes to Roland Barthes's book 'Le Plaiser du Texte', a famous discourse on authorship, semantic layering, and the creative role of the reader as the writer of the text. As was also the case in its first incarnation 'distributed authorship', a term coined by Ascott, has been the primary subject of investigation of LPDT2.

        Concept, Creation and Direction: Bill Psarras ** Bill Psarras © 2013. All rights reserved ** 'Elevator' is a new media/conceptual installation related to the human emotion of anger and its visualization to an artistic output. It was conceived & realized by Bill Psarras on 2008-2009 as well as constituted his practice-based BA thesis at the department of AudioVisual Arts - Ionian University (Greece). This short documentary is a presentation of its conceptual and audiovisual context. "Anger can be perceived as a kind of alchemy. The rude and primitive is transformed to something useful and intellectual. The artistic perception acts like a human cell. Elevator pushes this line to the margins of this cell by seeking for a way of connection between the meanings of beauty and disgusting, between the known and the unknown, between the flower and the thorn, between outer an inner – ‘eso’. Why anger then? " [Bill Psarras, 2009] The artist would like to thank Dr. Andreas Floros and Marianna Strapatsakis for their valuable help & support. _________________________________________________________________________ Music excerpts in this video are under the copyright of the following artists and they were used without profit intention. * Peter Gabriel - Passion / Album: Passion (1989) * Karnivool - Changes pt.

          from Mario Asef / Added

          Mario Asef's public interventions, photographs, videos, soundscapes and installations focus on the legibility of urban space and architecture into a specific social- cultural context within a historical moment. Hopping to find a way to explore an intimate social-critical and political aspect of forms, the artist develop a system of telling, in the sense of a thought experiment that aims to produce an unpredictable effect - a moment of logical absurdity - creating a fiction of the real. He is a precise and yet poetic recorder of the fleeting and the mundane. His work emphasise, in an unpretentious and yet precise way, moments of displacement and the disappearance of space and time. In a subversive and humorous way, Mario Asef manages to breach the rules of the every day life. Like a researcher he explores, with the most different mediums, the construct of public spaces and public life.

                      Gardening Robotic Wanderer GRoW visits urban landscapes that have been damaged by industry and left vacant. The soil is typically rocky and heavily impacted by large machinery and no doubt polluted. Though a few hardy plants do take root they tend to grow sparsely and as a whole the sites lack biodiversity. GRoW helps nature return the land to a productive state by dumping compost to build rich soil and distributing wildflower seeds to increase biodiversity. This video documents initial visits to a few sites. GRoW is fully autonomous, but requires a human to refill seed and compost.
