Over the years I have thought about what it is that I feel defines virtual art. The questions I asked myself were what makes it unique over other mediums such as painting, sculpture or cinema? I am going to do a series of posts explaining my thoughts on this subject, and it will be split into what I see as “layers” to an artwork created in a virtual space. This is just my perspective and I am sure others may have completely different ways of viewing artwork created in virtual worlds or perhaps their focus lies in a different direction. There are no “rules” in art but it is good to formulate observations and that is my intention. The first layer which I will speak about now is the artwork itself.
Chutes d’Images : I have a different position on some parts but this is an interesting starting point on “Virtual Art” (Second Life in this example) written by Bryn Oh.
