FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

+++

THE GATE (or Hole in Space, Reloaded)
Yannick Antoine, Yves Bernard (BE)
With the collaboration of: Domenico Quaranta (IT), Sugar Seville (SL)
Opening Performance: Second Front

iMAL Center for Digital Cultures and Technology, Brussels; Odyssey
Contemporary Art and Performance, Second Life (Odyssey 122/45/25)

04/10/07 - 07/10/07


The Gate is an installation connecting real life and Second Life, a
junction point, a door between two worlds and two representation spaces.
Basically, it is a simple window between both worlds where real users
and SL users see each other and can meet. A view of the SL Gate is
permanently projected in the real life venue; when an avatar comes in
front of The Gate, it is visible in the public space; when one arrives
physically in front of the door in the public space, he/she can interact
with the SL user currently in front.

The result will be a kind of happening where the virtuality of SL is
transferred in the physicality of our public space and vice-versa; a
stage for performance and interaction, something between a breakdance
platform, an inter-dimensional portal and a peep show through parallel
universes.

The Gate has been designed for the opening show of iMAL new space in
Brussels. The show explores the fusion between the physical world and
the net through networked sculptures and installations which question
the physical space as well as the digital world. Featured artists:
Yannick Antoine (BE), Pascal Baltazar (FR), Justin Benett (UK), Yves
Bernard (BE), Jonah Brucker-Cohen (USA), Mathieu Chamagne (FR), HC Gilje
(NO), Linda Hifling (DK), Thomas Israël (BE), Sven König (DE), Walter
Langelaar (NL), Sascha Pohflepp (DE), Antoine Schmitt (FR), SecondFront
(Second Life), Walter Verdin (BE), Visual Kitchen & Eavesdropper (BE).

Perform from iMAL with people on Second Life

The Gate is installed on Odyssey, an island in Second Life dedicated to
art and performance.
In the opening hours of iMAL (October 5 - 6, 11 AM - 7PM [2AM - 10AM
SLT]; October 7, 10AM - 8PM [1AM - 11 PM SLT]), people, avatars and
performance artists are kindly invited to come, perform and interact at
The Gate, both in real life and in Second Life.
During the vernissage on October 4 (8:30 - 12 PM [11:30AM - 3PM SLT])
Second Front, the first performance art group in Second Life, will use
The Gate as a in-between stage in front of iMAL visitors and SL passer-by.
