( Please come if you can!  Whatever you think of the work, it's most 
likely unique and on some sort of strange frontier between 'real' and 
'virtual,' 'analog' and 'digital' and the boundaries of modeling and 
recognition. We're down in West Virginia until August; this is probably 
the only chance to see the videos and images 'live.' Thanks! - Alan

CUTTING THE EDGE. Alan Sondheim, Azure Carter, Sandy Baldwin and Gary
Manes have been working for the past several months at the Virtual
Environments Laboratory, West Virginia University, Morgantown. Sondheim
will be presenting the results of that research, which involves avatars,
human modeling, phenomenology of virtual lives, choreography, motion
capture, and a host of other issues. Some of the work has been completed
with renowned dancer/choreographer Foofwa d'Imobilite, based in New York
and Geneva, Switzerland. The modeling includes distorted and misconfigured
mappings, crystal and other radio mappings of the environment, and other
material which literally cut the edge, live on the edge of software,
hardware, and real-life environments, including Second Life, Brooklyn,
West Virginia, and spaces internal to 3D modeling programs. This work is
supported by National Science Foundation (WVU) and New York State Council
On The Arts grants. The prolific Alan Sondheim has been a regular part of
the Personal Cinema Series for many years and this program contains his
usual collection of surprises, sexual meditations and formal adventures.
He has been constructing audio and video, performing, and inscribing
within cyberspace since 1994. Since that time he has been working on an
"internet text," a continuous meditation on philosophy, psychology,
language, body and virtuality.
