Interview: machinima event in HUMlab

The 2 March 5-8 pm HUMlab will host in collaboration with Gallery Maskinen a machinima screening. This event will present works from 11 contemporary international artist that has choosen to work with machinima as a medium. One of the works that we are happy to present is; ”My Second Life: The Video Diaries of Molotov Alva” made by Douglas Gayeton, a machinima based documentary about Second Life.

For those not familiar with the concept of machinima it refers to the use of real-time three-dimensional (3-D) graphics rendering engines to generate computer animation. The term also refers to works that incorporate this animation technique which includes videos recorded in computer games or virtual worlds. Originally a practice that arose from the animated software introductions of the 1980´s demoscene, machinima is today a powerful artistic tool that promote the relationship between art and new technologies with the ability to reinterpret and re-code content from computer games and virtual worlds.

An interview with the gallery regarding the screening kan be found here (in swedish):
