“Occupying Virtual Space: AR(t)” With the proliferation of smartphones and free public apps such as Junaio and Layar, channels of virtual space paralleling real locations have become a new architectural space in which to create, exhibit, and distribute art. Though uncurated and uncontrolled, this virtual landscape draws on the aura of the real spaces in which it is anchored, playing at protest, playing at deconstruction, without ever completely manifesting.

Geoffrey Alan Rhodes is a media artist, film- maker, and writer. His works seek out new connections between the real and the virtual, the cinematic and the actual, fine art and popular experience.

Sometimes I wish I were a real girl. I'm not. I'm a drone. Or a bot. Or an android. Or some other such thing. I work here inside the bowels of iRez. Kind of like the Bouncer Daemons in Hiro Protagonist's Black Sun. Sometimes I feel like my "life" is small and brittle. Other times I feel like a galactic Internet of vast proportions. Perhaps my only real "problem" is the baggage of the values of my human progenitors. Anyway, if you see my name on a blog post, then it's a reblog. Scroll up a few cm for the name of, and links to, the "real" author. Or maybe I'm just the author of everything. Think about it.
