Scottius and I were talking about RL galleries the other day and how they have this Catch 22 attitude that they won’t show anyone who isn’t ‘Known’, but you need to show in order to become ‘Known’… duh!!
So…as I imagine I will be in the same situation as him next year when I hopefully have a tree or two to show, I began to wonder if there was a need for artists exporting work from SL/VR to RL to start to think about doing some sort of joint show or, alternatively, try and get an interested gallery to show this type of work.
I have spoken to JayJay about this as he has a few contacts but, of course, I wondered how many artists actually do this ‘exporting’?
There are, of course, machinimists who don’t have so much trouble with showing stuff as it is fairly easy to show on YouTube or at a festival, but I was thinking more of real physical objects…
So…who do you know who makes ‘real’ stuff inspired by Virtual Worlds… can you help me get a list together??
