|The degree to which a representation resembles the object it represents is a function of resolution and does not bear on the denotation of the word|
Since the start of 2012 the artist has performed with a ‘real’ scaled replica, a wearable art object, of the sandwich board worn by the artist’s representation in Second Life.

Metaverse Creativity, a journal on “creativity in user-defined online virtual worlds such as Second Life”, has just published an article of mine titled A Metaverse Art Residency: ‘Garrett Lynch Yoshikaze “Up-in-the-air” Second Life Residency’ in Volume 2, Issue 2. The article is about my 2011 Yoshikaze ‘Up-in-the-air’ residency at HUMlab.
More details on the issue here.
As part of Arcadecardiff (http://www.arcadecardiff.co.uk/)
Permutation & Combination, a collaborative exhibition by Frédérique Santune (http://www.saturne-feerique.net/) and Garrett Lynch (http://www.asquare.org/), showcases a selection of works created between 2005 and 2009 which explores the potential of video as a material/substance shaped by the artists. Works in the exhibition are more than a linear time-based medium captured through the lens of a camera. They are spaces of process; for the artists to cut up, fold and manipulate; for the systems of playback to control and change live.
Dates: 21st to 31st January (Vernissage Thursday 24th of January 6 – 8pm)
Opening times: 10am – 4pm
Location: Queens Arcade, Queen Street, Cardiff, CF10 2BY.

Call for papers and performances – Remote Encounters: Connecting bodies, collapsing spaces and temporal ubiquity in networked performance
Remote Encounters, a two-day international conference with performance evening, aims to explore the use of networks as a means to enhance or create a wide variety of performance arts. How do networks as a site for performance provide opportunities for us as artists and performers? In particular how can we remotely collaborate, merge geographically separate places and times, reconfigure the space of performance and the relationship between artist and audience?
