Visualizing Theorem Exhibit Opening

Saturday April 2, 2011

4pm SLT

The creative forces of art, music and science collide in this new sim wide art exhibit at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).  The installations are based on tracks from real life album ‘Theorem’ produced by Ulf Skogsbergh which is the result of online collaboration between ten musicians from social networking website-‘Indaba Music.’

Curated in Second Life ™  by conceptual artist, Misprint Thursday-this new exhibit brings together well respected virtual artists and features sixteen installations which are based on the science and math theories explored in the album.

In the exhibit, the work of the artists range from performance, to detailed steam punk style machines, interactive work, and minimal conceptual work. Each of the contributing artists selected a track from the album ‘Theorem’ to work from as their inspiration. The theories range from space-time, to special relativity, to genetic theory as well as some philosophy and computer programming ideas.

Visitors to the exhibit can view immersive art pieces; play tracks from ‘Theorem’ and listen to dream like soundscapes set at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) sim.

Wear the HUD provided in the invite object and at the exhibit landing point.  Use it for an easy tour of all builds or take the separate teleports located at each installation. Bring friends for a social experience, or relax to the superb music while travelling the whole sim solo.
