Sculptural Installation in both gallery and in Second Life — Produced in collaboration with Scott Kildall

“No Matter” is an installation of “imaginary objects” made both in Second Life and physical space.

It explores the tension between the virtual and real economies by (1) commissioning 25 builders and artists to produce 40 cultural artifacts in Second Life space; (2) paying them in Linden dollars at an equivalent scale of $1.50 to $12.00 per object; (3) extracting the objects from Second Life — a closed system where 3D models cannot be exported; (4) reconstructing these objects as 3D paper replicas with high-quality printed textures in physical space.
