the velocity of new categories in the fields of art increases with every second. since long do the antique forms of public representation fall back, galleries, museums and other institutions deliver no adequate form of viewing works in real space, hence most of this works were developed and happen in virtual spaces. the “open_Art” project gives a possible solution to this problem. using computers and wlan networks as a medium to transport digital produced art to any visitor of a gallery or museum, by giving them the place in the real space, former occupied by pictures, scluptures or other traditional exposés, allowing the viewer full access with his personal computer or at several docking stations. this allows these antiquated institutions to follow up with the speed of the changing time and still leaving the visitor in the experience of witnessing art in a traditional surrounding.

schattenjagd

film noir takes us into a realistic world in abstract moving pictures. it doesn’t feed us with heroic hollywood like heroes, the characters won’t fit into the familiar categories of good or evil, so is the duality of the visual image. in harsh black and white tones interluded by the shades of grey we see the extreme divergencies of the morality in a visual form. in the world of computer games seldomly exists such a break in the character of the avatars we take control over. “Schattenjagd” as a small adventure game gives you a hint of the feeling of beeing on both sides of the coin as we are always in everyday life. there is no good or evil just the shades of grey.
the concept of the game was developed as a short comics strip, you will find more about the idea and the making of the game here. the site is in german but you can download the game there either in an english or german version.
