[ISEA2009] Artist Statement: Denise Doyle – Kritical Works in SL II, 2009

Artist Statement

Second Life exhibition, 2 digitally materialised objects (on plinths):
Gandhi (2008), Joseph DeLappe
Wandering Fictions Story (2009), Denise Doyle

The Kritical Works in SL II exhibition has built upon, and extended, the first phase of the project and is a major exhibition showcasing artworks produced in, and for, Second Life (SL). As phase two of Kritical Works, this exhibition not only presents the SL island artworks and trans-locates them into a real-world gallery space, it also presents the virtual artists invited, while documenting and recording the inWorld curatorial process itself. This additional data offers a point of reflection that is critical to the understanding of the paradigm shifts occurring through digital technologies, and in particular, virtual worlds.

  • Denise Doyle is an Artist Curator, Senior Lecturer in Digital Media at the University of Wolverhampton, UK, and a PhD candidate at SMARTlab Digital Media Institute, University of East London, UK.
