Further Along The Path: The Exquisite Corpse Continues at LEA

The Path is an immersive project based around the exquisite corpse concept sometimes used by the Surrealists.   You can see a machinima and find more info for that work by going here...

We are pleased to announce the opening of Further along the Path which is a new exquisite corpse build with another group of some of the worlds top virtual artists.

Media were invited to attend on Thursday the 17th of May at 1pm SLT for a walk through with the artists able to attend.

The event  opened to the public on Friday May 18th also at 1pm SLT

     Essentially, each chosen artist adds to a composition in sequence.  Eight artists were invited to stand upon one of eight different coloured boxes I had set up.  Once all had chosen a box to stand on, a chart was rezzed which listed the order of colours which would hten dictate the sequence of artists to compose the scenes for a narrative.
     So if red was the first colour on the chart, then the artist standing on the red cube would begin the narrative.  If blue were next then the artist on the blue cube would continue the story after red had passed their part on to them.
     The artist who goes first composes a short start to a story.  They then pass on this segment to the artist who is next on the list.  That artist would then write up a continuation of the narrative and pass it on to the third artist.  This would continue until reaching the eighth and final artist.

This is the random order of artists for Further along the Path

  1. Glyph Graves
  2. paramparamm Papp
  3. Alpha Auer
  4. Bryn Oh
  5. Oberon Onmura
  6. Eupalinos Ugajin
  7. Ux Hax & romy Nayar
  8. Ub Yifu

I would like to thank all the artists involved for working so hard on this project and in such a professional manner. They created a truly brilliant experience for me and hopefully for all the guests as well.
