|The Distinction Between Here and There, Now and Then|
The Distinction Between Here and There, Now and Then is a work about performance that occurred through the internet.
|This is Real Virtuality|
This is Real Virtuality – A first person narrative in weblog form recounts the experiences of an individual noticing colliding virtu/re-alities.
|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.

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.
