“The idea was to illuminate the shift of perception from outside to inside the virtual world. The visitor is presented with a beautiful expanse of white columns not unlike a circuit board or a graveyard. Jumping down in to the field we are treated to the voices of a diverse group of real people belaying the sterile perception social media in general by reminding us there are people behind the virtual avatar on the screen. The effect is quite touching as you walk through the amusing, touching, and clever proximity activated voices in the poles.”

Field of Voices – Caerleon took place April 2010 as part of Through the Virtual Looking Glass an exhibition of the art of virtual worlds in the Harbor Gallery of the University of Massachusetts at Boston. The Boston exhibition was part of an unprecedented international collaboration that exhibited the work of artists from more than twenty nations in real world galleries in six countries: France, Holland, Germany, Brazil, Australia, and the USA.
