CORRESPONDENCE was an exhibition with components in physical and virtual realities, exploring how new technologies can promote the accessibility of the arts and change our idea of a public space. Sixteen artists worked together to make an exhibition at Prestamex House, mirrored by a virtual version in Second Life. This version ran in parallel but without the need to be constrained by the laws of physical reality; the real exhibition also appeared on the internet in a second iteration relayed back by a roaming spybot, each version of the show having properties that the other lacked.
The show’s physical component took place in a reclaimed office space by Preston Park, and it is still represented online at a Second Life location and at www.correspondence-exhibition.com.
The show features the work of:
Jane Frances Dunlop
Anthony Gartland and Andrew Paveley
