New Voices in Art

Here’s Tor Kjetil Edland’s post from Nordic Scene in its entirety:


The larp “New Voices in Art” has been admitted to Nisjelandet , the art section of the music festival By:Larm taking place in Oslo 21 – 23 February. New Voices in Art will be played at DogA, the Norwegian Design and Architecture Centre from 18 – 20 on Thursday the 21st
and Friday the 22nd.

Chamber Games

New Voices in Art is a short larp about a group of aspiring artist the night before the opening of the exhibition ‘New Voices in Art’. The participants play a version of themselves as aspiring artists. The main themes of this game are ambition, ambivalence and aloneness. The world of modern art is used as a setting to symbolize our yearning for success and fulfillment as creative individuals. Each participant is randomly given a piece of art for the duration of the game that is their work contribution to this exhibition. New Voices in Art has previously been played in Oslo and at Knudepunkt in Denmark in 2007.

One aim of Nisjelandet is to show a selection of distinct forms of cultural expressions being shared with others through the internet. New Voices in Art as well as some other games are freely available at Chambergames.

The game features one of my art pieces, although I don’t know which one.
