The word cyberspace is known now as an artword, its born from the word cyber (a shortform from the english word cybernetic that again comes from the greek word „kybernetike“; „The art of navigate“ and the word „space“. On the worldfamous Macy-Conferences in the years 1946 till 1953 cybernetik was something of high interest. Wellknown and famous scientists as Alan Turing, John von Neumann and Heinz von Foerster started here from scratch the modern computertechnics and the programm-architecture, today an example for cyberspace. The real cyberspace was opened by Secondlife. So you speak of web 3-D or so called metaverses. The metavereses are internet-based virtual time-space-infrastructures. The miracle that we are experiencing today: the cyberspace, the dematerialized virtual time-space, the worldwide webbed society. where we „surf around „with lightspeed. An artist that is NOT using this virtual universe as a challenge and a goal doesnt deserve the name „ avantgarde“

This e-book dedicated to the pioneer of cybernetic art Nicolas Schöffer. He was one of the most important artists of the second half of twentieth century. Father of cybernetic art, thus of so-called „interactivity“, he wanted to bring a prospective and non-backward-looking vision of art, which could help mankind to develop itself with a good hold on true creative and liberating possibilities of our times.

carp RL Name: László Ördögh Diabolus What motivates a designer, human engineer and virtual reality software developer to go to Second Life and getting involved in this incredible world? Playfulness, the happy homo ludens? Maybe that too. But I have much more serious motivations: 1: - What I enjoy in SL is the pioneer spirit that rules in this world. I my daily real life working with industrial virtual reality is also pioneering. But in RL you cannot make everything what you could imagine in your fantasy. There the discussion goes about much money, resources, management, hierarchy, organisation, economical efficiency and so on, not really about things that really matter. SL is a dematerialised world with a high degree of abstraction to realize all possible and impossible associations . It’s the perfect playground, for thinking „bioavatars“, to experiment with substantial subjects without the material consequences. 2: - I started in SL with the idea to build a Avatar Museum there, had to be there because SL is the Future and its useless to stay in the past being busy with that. 3: - The most valuable what I got from SL are the good friends I have there: Josina the best Muse ever and the most reliable Partner in all the adventures, Caravaggio, Jan, Juria, Noizz, Terri, Whyzzer, Manax and all the others in my friends list. 4: - An Avatar in SL is the real metacommunication. Behind every avatar there is people and the avatars are very able to present or show their mentality and norms. 5: - SL is a concept for creative competence, the ideal platform to research and experiment art of the future. 6: - SL is also in the Social Surroundings with simple rules and a Global Community without any borders. Maybe an example for our RL community.

32 carp THE SCRIPTING THE CARP COMPOSERS The Goal with the black & white Installation was to show the audiovisual effects in a structured (dramatized) form. There is a need for such structured actions, it also is used in SL Performances after examples in RL performances. The SL performance components are becoming their structured forms steered by the intelligence of people in the background. In SL its possible to build structured forms by intelligent automatisms that at the same time communicate with the environment. This of course needs a permanent communication between the single prims that hold the effects. Without this communication its impossible to synchronize the audiovisual effects with each other in time and space. For this task are 2 solutions possible in LSL. 1.- The Prim Channel Communication. Gives the possibility to exchange dates total and freely between the single prims in a 94 meter distance, and those prims stay independent from each other. 2. – Linked Prim set Communication. Where the data exchange only takes place in a linked prim set. The maximum communication distance is limited in 30 meter and these LSL functions are not always reliable. In CARP we have tried both configurations. For the Black & White Installation was the Linked Prim set Communication used and for the Dwarf-choir of nnoiz Papp the Prim Channel Communication. The Prim Channel Communication was also used for the “Dino” of Josina Burgess and “the Caterpillar loves you” of Caravaggio Bonetto. There are 2 possibilities for Audio Presentations in SL. 1.- The Plot Music, what of course is a sound streaming non position depending loudness, but with the ability to play a longer streaming. With LSL you only can pull on or off. 2.- The max. 10 sec long upload sounds have to be downloaded like photo’s for SL.


carp The short-sounds however have 2 great abilities: The loudness of the sound sources are able to play distancereliable. At the other hand its possible to use them in LSL in as many events you need.

THE CARP MATRIX Most of the Audiovisual Effects in SL are exist from random-generated and/or unsynchronised sequenzes, or based on prim/envirpnment- events or avatar-signals through sensors or collision. In LSL there is one useful function. It is possible to run more LSL scripts in combination in one task (prim content). The outcome is an integrated totaleffect for one prim. This method is easy to run and gives a fast building possibility. A collection of well selected on each other-scripts. All different but well defined and giving each a great effect are also usable in combination and is of value for the working method. The script combinations sometimes produce totally unexpected but fantastic effects. The CARP Matrix is a collection of “put into the content and forget� script modules who are easy to use in combination.

carp Name: José den Burger. SL name: Josina Burgess José studied at the Famous Artists Schools of America and graduated in illustration, advertisement,free painting and drawing. She studied under Ben Stahl, Al Parker, Jon Witcomb, Fred Ludekens, Peter Helck, got her papers in 1967 and then decided to become a ...........singer! As a singer she worked successfully in the Netherlands especially in the 70ties (was the first female protestsinger) . She made several albums , was a member of the Knokke Songfestival Team and had her own radio and personality show on the Dutch Television. She worked with the well known Ted de Braak in all Dutch Theaters and was a guest in many radio and television shows. She traveled around the world and performed in the Intercontinental Hotels, on cruiseships and in many international television shows. In Spain she was appearing for 4 years on Spanish television and in the years after that she became the leading lady of the well known close-harmony trio The New Shepherds and after that of Close Encounter were she was leader of her own 7 mans band. made several albums again and performed on dutch radio and television. During all these years of traveling she continued painting and drawing and was inspired by the countries she visited. The work has many facets, just like a human has many sides in his or her personality. Feelings and impressions, sometimes subtile, but also powerful and above all the use of bright colors are specific for her art. Non-figurative, abstract as well as figurative paintings, explosions of color, gold and bronze, memories and feelings are telling their story. In the end of 2006 I started Secondlife, after seeing something about it on the Dutch television, I was really interested to find out what happened there with art. Found that there were many galleries interested to exhibit my art and started from there. But just showing images of my real life paintings was not enough and I started to search for new challenges. So I went into to making dresses using the images of my real paintings as textures on them and called them “Wearable Art”. It was an immediately success and after I met Velazques Bonetto I started to experiment more with different textures we made from images of projects in SL as well as images or designs we made specially for the dresses or other projects. From Velazques I learned how to use scripts and started to animate the dresses as well. Going from there I went into building sculptures and installations using scripts in an ”innocent” way and some times the effects were amazing. It has my total interest now and I love the new challenges and possibilities to create a total NEW ART that never existed before elsewhere. www.josedenburger.artolive.nl

When I started on Secondlife, exhibiting my paintings there, I of course also went to openings of other exhibitions in different other Galleries. To expand my network and to see how other artists worked. SL is a great place to see a lot of art in a short time and that works inspiring as well. On one of these occasions I went to the Cetus District where many small and bigger Galleries are gathered and saw there works of Caravaggio Bonetto and her Father Velazques Bonetto. I spoke a while with Velazques and on a later occasion when I saw him again he asked me if he could make a photograph of me because he was making a study of different avatars in SL. In those

41


42 carp days I had started the making of “Wearable Art�, using my paintings as textures on them and experimenting with different models. During the photo session, Velazques told me more about his interests in avatars on SL and some of the stories behind them. One avatar specially had his interest and that was the avatar of MANAX a rather strange but very special caracter and the person behind it was very intelligent and knew a lot about building scripts and had a very spectaculair way of behaving in SL. After hearing the story behind MANAX I asked Velazquez if it was not possible to do something with this knowledge in the form of a project, and so our first MANAX project started. I wrote a poem, an rl Actor, 5imon Baker narrated it, Cypress Rosewood, a great musician in rl as well in sl composed music and Velazques invented a light organ for sl with particles and light spitting images of the MANAX figure into the air and around the viewers. It was a great success and we really started to work together since that time, I as an Alpha work from my feelings and expression, Velazques as a Beta can translate my ideas in workable scripts and good building. Together as a team we started creating and experimenting. We showed dancing Scarecrews, dancing and flying paintings, moving and sounding sculptures. Also we started a store where we sell my wearable art-dresses were several were scripted and animated now . Velazques had the idea of starting to work with more artists we met on SL and who we admired for the works they make on SL so we asked Juria Yoshikawa, Noizz Papp, Caravaggio Bonetto and MANAX to work with us in a Team and so CARP was born. We all work different, have our own specialties and interests but all the same Goal: to make NEW ART, experiment, develop, pioneer. Working this way we inspire each other. Work out new ideas and every day again is a challenge. The Cable Biothops Velazques and me builded with special textures made of car engines, new SL animals, interactive, so reacting on avatars, some semi-intelligent. The


carp idea was to make a total new SL “life” New scripts were written by Velazques and we experimented with looks and moves. The scripts also worked in other ways well. Objects and Sculptures were build and using different scripts in just one object showed a great outcome.Using different scripts on my “Strange Cloud” made it intelligent , it started to change shape by itself and is reacting on the avatar that approaches it. The “Dino” that I made needed a way of “walking”so I asked Velazques to write me a script where it would walk like a “harmonica” and yes it worked out so well that the Team could use that script on other projects as well. The Breathing script I asked for also is great to work with, I made a sculpture out of blocks, did put sound and texture change inside and the whole sculpture seems to live and breath and is fantastic to look at. Also the “Breathing Room” with textures I make in Photoshop is wonderful to stand in and let the rotating and sounds work in to you. We are just starting here and the ideas plop in my mind waiting to become alive in SL. No limits and no borders, I can create and experiment freely here and its fantastic to work in a Team like this were all of us have the same drive. Standing at the beginning of something Big, New ART of the Future makes me feel great and happy to be able to participate and almost impatient to see where it will bring us all.

First I did build a kind of „skeleton“adding many prims close together then from there I started sculpturing it in a shape it looked like some dionsaur type of thing but still abstract. Then I used a cable (engin) texture on them and used totallyclear on the sides to make it more abstract. I got the idea that it would be nice when it would be able to walk like a „harmonica“ and also it should follow an avatar. Velazques invented a script that did the trick and the „Dino“ is very alive and alert now and follows you where you go, slowly but secure, and every part of his „body“follows the other like a „harmonica“. Of course this script brings more ideas and I will use it for sure on other new objects.

For this Cable Biothope I did build from simple forms a birdlike object and used bitmaps from engine textures on it in yellow and red. Inside a collision script that reacts on commands as #dance and #stop so it can hop and bounce around giving of funny sounds I also added. To have the effect I need 2 objects at least so they go in collision and activate each other. But its very funny to see them dance.

Its a nice object with unexpected views of textures inside it I made several snapshots from different angles and got this way totally new textures again

carp „And then there was light“, for this project I asked Velazques to write me a script that makes the object „breath“ I made a box and hollowed it, then i made it closed and did put he script inside , it worked wanderful, I also used a voxel sensor script with totallyclear texture to make sound come in as well and the possibility to walk thorough the object and let it dissapear before me and come back again, also a collision script so it reacts on the avatar. I chose for thunder and light sounds, also added a rainbox and some mist and the whole thing gives a feeling like standing in a overwhelming nature disaster with sounds and just reacting as i wanted.

carp Dwarf choir: I came on a visit to velazquez and he showed me his newest test object. It was an array of spheres, interacting and triggering each other in a specific way. This first idea was from Miulew Takahe and Velazquez. After trigger them by collision they started to move up and down. I got the idea of a dwarf choir - dwarfs singing, going up and down. I told velazquez this idea and we suddenly started... First I had to choose the tuning and recorded the dwarf sounds in my sequenzer. The sound comes out of my Yamaha FS1R synthesizer. The sound control take place over the mod wheel and

67

makes the sounds a little bit „human“. I put 4 sounds on each dwarf. That was funny. But it was to „clean“ for me. So we changed one dwarf singing wrong stuff. The first trial was a cat sound, than I found a metallic screaming, and we took this one now. After this I worked on the textures. I took photos from me in my musicstudio (one of these 2 minutes sessions...;-)....) and imported this stuff into photoshop. I combined them with a rusty texture. We have 4 frames: a normal state, a singing state, normal2 called the „duck-state“, and a nerved state, when one of the dwarfs is singing wrong. After importing this into SL I put this textures on a sculpted prim (made with rokuro). I modified the textures to get different characters by stretching the textures and modifying the sculptured prims. Velazquez cares about the clothing then. In each state of the project we tested it out and had MUCH fun...! Now ist planned to organize a „dwarf choir festival“ with many different musicians playing or singing with the dwarfs.

I changed the design at my island ( a little bit postpunk, rusty style with my avatar face inside ) and modified the sounds, the reaction and moving times, so that the scare crows don´t act synchronized. After testing them there and presenting them at the dorkbot event in october I put back a copy to the diabolus gallery.

juria yoshikawa

After two decades of creative pursuits - ranging from conceptual art, installation, poetry, performance, computer art, animation, photography and digital design - Juria Yoshikawa (a.k.a. Lance Shields, Tokyo-based new media artist and designer) arrived in Second Life in the winter of 2007 looking for a new artistic spark. Rather than bringing in rl artwork, Juria is compelled to use mainly the elements that make up sl itself. A typical Juria Yoshikawa virtual artwork mixes kinetic objects, light sources, animated texture, ambient noise and av animations. She inevitably chooses scales larger than conventional gallery work because she is interested in people experiencing the work in a physical way - flying through them, riding on them and socializing within the art. To Juria virtual art is about freeing oneself up to create in ways she finds impossible in real life. In my real life, I am Lance Shields, a new media artist, creative director, interactive designer and social media specialist. Graduating with a BFA in new media from San Francisco Art Institute in 1992, sculpture and installation are where I started my rl creative career but I became progressively more involved in the digital and interactive. I see Second Life as a return back to my artistic roots yet at the same time combines my newer interests in the phenomenology in the virtual world. Phenomenology is defined as “the reflective study of the essence of consciousness as experienced from the first-person point of view�. In my commercial life, I am a social media strategist a global company embrace social networking, blogging and Second Life.

TheEvil Chemistry: What are the favorite groups you are in? MANAX: Probably the ones I made, lol. The Robot Comedy Nipple., MEVco, and People Against Negative Gormabs TheEvil Chemistry: Could you explain those groups to me? MANAX: Well, MEVco is my buisness. It‘s the group of peope I go to and pay to get things made, that I couldn‘t do, myself. Usually some of the more difficult scripts, and textures for them.

MANAX: No more than by the time Havok 27 comes out. TheEvil Chemistry: Why do you build the strange, dark, and often abstract things you make on sl? MANAX: Well, a good deal of it is boredom, and the wish to express myself in a conveiniant, yet versitile way, as sl provides, but there is one greater purpose. TheEvil Chemistry: What is that? MANAX: Well, the biggest problem I have with the world of today is that no one ever questions anything. They just accept the mainstream, because everyone else does, and go with it. By building the inquisitively designed things I make, I like to make people think, some. TheEvil Chemistry: What do you do on sl when you don‘t build or script. MANAX: I race with my own cars.
