Avatar Machine

Avatar Machine [LONDON] 2008 from MARC OWENS on Vimeo.

“The virtual communities created by online games have provided us with a new medium for social interaction and communication. Avatar Machine is a system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view themselves as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface. The system potentially allows for a diminished sense of social responsibility, and could lead the user to demonstrate behaviors normally reserved for the gaming environment.”

Honet

05 July 2011

Cedric “Honet”, born in 1972, lives and works in Paris, France. When he’s not working for Prada or showing his paintings in the Speerstra Gallery, he practices graffiti as an act with “symbolic” nature, a day to day action. He joins a gothic illustration style, inspired mostly by his life, with a romantic exploration of abandoned, forgotten and hidden places.
