II invites the audience to explore the virtual
spaces which Barri made in Versum for themselves. All the sounds, rhythms, shapes and colors to
create audiovisual compositions are given, but it is up to the audience
to do the actual composing. By moving physical avatars – equipped with
speakers and a video screen – in the physical space, they also
simultaneously move around in a common virtual space. The audience can thus,
simply by moving these avatars around, create music together with other
participants and direct their own abstract movies in the process.
II was developed as an artist-in-residence project during the Summer Sessions 2009 in the V2_Lab.
