Lovely episode of the “Drax Files” on Rose Borchovski aka Saskia Boddeke. (Quick apparition of her husband Peter Greenaway around 1min)
"If you are a member of the art world you cannot any longer ignore immersive virtual worlds!" says Rose Borchovski and adds: "In Second Life I have a much wider audience than in a museum!".
The prolific Dutch artist - whose real life identity need’nt be revealed in these liner notes - considers herself privileged to combine her SecondLife work with physical mixed media installations she exhibits all over the world.
Still, she says, only open virtual worlds can bring about an unparalleled intensity primarily because of avatar identification: anyone can create a digital alter ego, then walk into a digital performance space at any time, surrounded by sound, images, interactive 3D objects, that are to be explored and manipulated at leisure. And all that gentle artistic “onslaught” is accompanied by other - acquainted of random - avatar visitors who from behind their computer screens share and shape a unique emotional experience.
