Australia Council Inter-Arts Grant Winners

July 9, 2008

The Australia Council has announced the winners of their MMUVE IT! Inter-Arts Grant of thirty thousand dollars. The money is for a collaborative, art project in a virtual world.

Andrew Burrell a Sydney based artist, science researcher Trish Adams from Brisbane and startup virtual world VastPark will co-host the final exhibition along with Second Life.

The winning project sounds interesting

“Burrell and Adams will develop a human/computer interface system that explores the artistic possibilities of neuroscience studies. The system will allow viewers to interact with artificial life created in virtual worlds through sensor readings of bodily functions including physical gestures, breath, heartbeat or electrical brain and nervous system activity.”

Andrew Burrell has a second Life blog titled The Palace of Memory
