sharedscapes - web3D - points of view on landscapes

Tue Sep 30, 2008 00:00 - Tue Sep 30, 2008


new web3d art project ! participations welcome


sharedscapes - points de vue sur les paysages / points of view on landscapes

SHAREDSCAPES is an experimental shared space, a platform for creatvity, research and self-expression. It welcomes online submissions of texts, pictures and sounds, which will express your definitions of the concept of landscape.
The primary aim of SHAREDSCAPES is to provide a discussion forum for points of view inspired by the concept of landscape. Through the medium of the technological translation of material published online, its secondary aim is to create a 3D space or sculpture in real time. This will crystalise that material, seeking to bring together computer-generated images, chaotic/generative modelling and a “virtual reality” space. Little by little, a virtual landscape will develop. Its composition will not be subject to the physical constraints of a site (in concrete geographical terms) but to the technological exchanges of human beings virtually connected to each other. It is in the ambiguous relationship between landscape and technology that the essence of this project exists.

Le but de la Zone d'Invasion Temporaire est d'investir massivement une communaute 3d existante via le modele du "cheval de troie". Differents types d'avatars se deploient a partir d'une "architecture" centrale et envahissent, modifient, perturbent, detournent l'espace existant. Aux modes de representation classico-realistes de l'univers vise viennent se rajouter des parasites aux codes visuels et sonores issus de langages pop, minimaux, cinetiques, abstraits, symboliques, etc... Chaque avatar apporte un type de perturbation ( ex : camouflages/disparitions, vibrations, animations, monumentalite, modification de fond de scenes, videos temps reel, messages subliminaux, choregraphies, perspectives decalees, perspectives isometriques, multiplications d'avatars, chaos sonore etc...)

The intention of the Temporary Invasion Zone is to invest an existing web3d community using a "troyan horse" action. All sorts of avatars are spreading out from a central "architecture" and invade, modify, disturb, divert the existing space. To the "classic" representation modes are added parasites with visual codes taken from minimal, cinetic, abstract, symbolical languages.
