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 the basics for the Cyberspace. The real Cyberspace was opened by Secondlife. So you speak of web 3-D or so called Metaverses. The Metaverses are Internet-based virtual timespace-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 the 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 nonbackward-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 creators 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.

CARP creators Juria Yoshikawa Think gigantor jellyfish making love with efflorescent glow offspring and you might come close to “Scribble Ball Sky Collab”. Myself (Juria Yoshikawa) and Yman Juran improvised on this midsky performance at 500m above sl earth. Yman provided a spectacular particle display and I created a series of undulating large prim animated sculpties. Sculptie textures were also provided “on the fly” by Velazquez Bonetto to create some amazing organic chaos. Lots of friends turned out and it is was a surround visual disorienting feast. Bettina Tizzy of NPIRL asked me if we planned on keeping it up for a while but due to the live performance qualities of the improvisation I believe we will have to do a repeat performance instead. Stay tuned!

Juria Yoshikawa: Kinetic environment and participatory performance Nnoiz Papp: Musical composition and musical performance Olga Wunderlich: Curator in sl and rl The performance is open to all attendees of the virtual event. People will receive a dot outfit and large kinetic props to wear to take part in this improvised performance. In celebration of all of our dottiness and spottiness, virtual installation artist Juria Yoshikawa will join up with composer-artist Nnoiz Papp to perform „Seeing Spots, Being Dots“ at Diabolus Island as part of the current art show CARP3. The performance will be simultaneously shown in real life Berlin at the Scala Theatre as a part of the Directors Lounge Festival. I’d like to send out my thanks to Olga Wunderlich, the curator of this event, for inviting myself and Nnoiz Papp to to collaborate in this performance and giving us an audience in Berlin. Also, Velazquez Bonetto deserves the credit for creating the most of the scripts that made this thing actually run. Not to mention his hosting this improv series on his land Diabolus Island. I’d get no where without him. To Nnoiz Papp for our first and hopefully not last collaboration together I’d like to say it was very cool to work with him and I felt we were really in sync in this work. And I just loved the beautiful music. For their video documenting, I’d like to express my appreciation and respect to Evo Szuyuan and of course Eifachfilm Vacirca. Will share their videos later on this blog. I can never forget to say thank you to our favorite connector Bettina Tizzy of Not Possible in Real Life for feeding the word-of-mouth fire and so generously promoting my work. Not to mention giving me lots of sagely advice. Last and not least, I have to say thanks to all of you who came out on your Friday morning or evening to be a part of this performance. I loved seeing what you would create with this and went beyond my expectations for the haphazard and energetic quality. Thanks you guys!

be in Berlin at Directors Lounge, and who will give the the tour to the Berlin audience. Meeting point: the Directors Lounge Pavillon at NewBERLIN.

Both artists are incredibly active in Second Life will almost weekly, sometimes even more frequent, activities.

NewBERLIN is a stunningly realistic reconstruction of Berlin in Second Life starting from the most prominent spot in Berlin, Alexanderplatz with inclusion of the most recent buildings and still expanding. NewBerlin also hosts art festivals and regular exhibitions in the „Kulturbahnhof“ the platform of the S-Bahn and in the Cubix building, the close-by cinema. On the day of our guided tour, NewBerlin is hosting the NewBerlin Art Festival which will also be shown life in Kopenhagen at that same day. ... of the YOUin3D.com crew, the owners of NewBerlin will show us around and will be present for Q&A.

Finally, the Berlin audience will be presented the film „Gaz of the Desert“.

In the short intermission, the Berlin audience will see some excerpts of a film made in Second Life and Kenia. „Kinshasa 2.0“ of which we will see an excerpt, plays both in Second Life and in the Real world and tells the story of a prominent family in Democratic Republic of Congo whose members have been divided through political exile and who can only meet in the virtual world of Second Life. The film will be premiered in full length on this year’s Berlinale. The Berlin audience will then be let to Diabolus Island, where another exhibition takes place: CARP3, but we will see an inworld performance of two artists live on Diabolus. This will be a public online event Diabolus Island, on the other hand, is a much more „artificial“ generic environment, where selected artists experiment with the in-world possibilties of building, sculpting and scripting in Second Life. Velazques Boneto, one of the owners and founder of Diabolus is a professional programmer and IT professor provides hands-on help for the artists with programming solutions for the individual and collaborative projects which are being realized here. CARP3 is the name of the current exhibition we will visit. We will attend the Collaborative Improvisation (Virtual JAZZ) by Juria Yoshikawa, visual artist and nnoiz Papp, sound artist.

„Gaz of the Desert“, on the other hand, is a film shot entirely in Second Life and tells dreamlike encounters of artist Gazira Babeli with other characters in an environment, which was an art piece by itself, and which was built by the same artist. Gazira Babeli, main actor, protagonist, stage designer and filmmaker in one person is a well-known artist who is only active in Second Life.

CARP creators Juria Yoshikawa „When swirlies invaded my brain“ by Juria Yoshikawa Culture is a virus. It spreads hard and fast, straight to the head and heart. I have been stricken by what I‘ve come to know as the swirlies. I‘ve spent some time among them taking in their whimsical attitude. My brain is tingling and I fear that this isn‘t art but some other form of time wasting. Some people have hobbies, I let swirlies invade my brain. Join me?

CARP creators Juria Yoshikawa Gnossienne Groggy Deep Juria Yoshikawa In the mind, there is a place just out of reach between knowing and feeling. When we first wake, we have glimpses of it: colors, fears, textures, childhood smells, organic sensations, birth and death. A mix of illogical but powerful things that defines us, if in very subtle ways. Gnossienne No.1, a piano piece by Erik Satie partially inspired me to do an environment that combines feelings and elements of a mind in semiwakefuless. I took the liberty to remix Satie‘s song - stretching, reversing, speeding up - attempting to cast a new sense of time and mood. I also made a very simple outfit to be worn in the space to accentuate one‘s avatar‘s position in the space and the light.

Where has Juria been? Some people who have been kind enough to come visit my work in the past two years may have wondered „where has Juria been?“. Let me just say that I (Lance Shields) have been kept very busy in rl getting started in a MBA which is a lot harder than I thought it would be.But now four months into it, I feel the need to pick up my virtual artist tools and do some work from time to time. That said, I may not be as prolific as I once was but I hope to entertain you with an artwork now and again. Welcome back Juria
