« My Second Life art practice has largely involved moving physical prims around. I’m attracted to the smoothness of the motion, and the ability to manipulate gravity, mass, force, torque, and other physical characteristics we normally ascribe to objects in space. I’m also attracted by the limitations of SL’s physics engine – that piece of software governing all these attributes – which is occasionally overwhelmed at the enormity of its task.
This piece is a conceptual exploration of Werner Kurosawa’s Tower, and all the happenings inside it as currently installed at AIRE Vile Spatiale. The shape of the tower’s sections defines the trajectory of the prims as they “bounce” off surfaces on the way toward the bottom.
At the top of the tower, a single prim is released periodically down into the void. During its travels, that prim becomes two prims, they become four, they become eight, and at 870 meters (around the halfway point down the tower), 16 prims all converge at a rotating panel. As they continue their journey to the bottom, the process is reversed, until a single prim periodically strikes a collector on the surface.
Viewers can enable a sphere at the top, and ride it slowly down to witness all of these events. » Oberon Onmura, july 2011
