Call: UAVM: “Virtual Worlds”
Call for entries
Deadline: 14 March 2010
UAVM Virtual Museum
presents a open call for the “Virtual Worlds” project to be launched
by the 2th of April 2010.
“Virtual world” in common sense, leads to the idea of a 3D environment, which seeks to resemble the real world. These worlds actually reflect the real world laws such as gravity, topography, communication, etc., creating alternative worlds to reality designed primarily for entertainment (such as, for example, computer games).
In recent years, however, we witnessed a massive growth in internet and the birth of many virtual worlds are beginning to depart from the rudimentary purpose of entertainment, evolving into real social networks of some importance (as is the case of Second Life).
Regardless of the objectives that have these worlds, its creation involves an area of contemporary art that should be encouraged, and in-depth study: 3D art creation.
So, with this purpose, the UAVM Virtual Museum presents “Virtual Worlds” for artists all over the world to present their ideas about the subject. Dead line 14 Mars 2010.
