Plain Truth


Description:  "What is a virtual space? How do you visit a virtual world? Where are you when you do? Is it art or something more?

A new project by Jason Baerg and Khal Shariff for Storm Spirits pushes these boundaries. In the "Plain Truth" artists Jason and Khal create a virtual gallery floating in a virtual sky to offer a new perspective. Available online using Macromedia Flash technologies, this unique gallery allows visitors to float through clouds and navigates an island in the sky; art direction by Métis Jason Baerg and technical lead supported by Khal Shariff. As unexpected sounds provide ambience, one can experience visuals by Jason Baerg over the great Plaines.
