Abstract

UNCAGED is a series of six ‘mixed reality' installations central to Nuhn's concern with relationships between screen-based virtual worlds and physical reality. Unlike most other work in this area combining the ‘real' and the ‘virtual' in rather complex ways – often involving video capturing devices, novel projection platforms, electronic tags or mobile computing technology – the idea behind UNCAGED was to extend conventional screen displays into their physical surroundings (and vice versa) in very immediate ways, in order to be more referential to and explicitly challenge our normal experience of engaging with ‘virtual media'. See: http://www.telesymbiosis.com UNCAGED was first shown in a solo exhibition at the V&A National Museum of Childhood, London, 1 May to 20 June 2004. The choice for this particular space reflects the project's aim to be accessible for adults and children alike. Number of visitors: over 30,000 (Museum Exhibitions Officer). http://www.vam.ac.uk/moc/whats_on/past/uncaged/index.html Since October 2004 one exhibit has been on display at the ZKM - Centre for Art and Media (Germany) as part of the exhibition Algorithmic Revolution. See: http://www01.zkm.de/algorithmische-revolution/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=88 Visitors: over 170,000 (ZKM figures 11/2004 to 12/2006) In 2007 the Museum acquired the artefact for its permanent collection. UNCAGED gained Second Prize at the Eurographics John Lansdown Interactive Digital Art Award 2006 awarded by an international jury.
