 Yokohama Triennale in SL

“There are no nationalities or borders here; we are all world citizens in a future world where everyone lives his second life and creates his own values.”

—China Tracy

Cao Fei (aka China Tracy) together with Vitamin Creative Space and Avatrian is working on one of the biggest and most ambitious virtual project yet — RMB City. It is a virtual city and art community in Second Life. It is created to be a public platform of creativity. The city will start to grow and change beginning on its official launch this October of 2008. The participation and support of leading international art institutions and networks will ensure over its two year run.

As a city defining creativity, RMB City will be used to realize the dream projects of the general public. This is the main objective of the Yokohama Triennale. Anyone and just about everyone is invited to submit an artistic project as entries to the “Play With Your Triennale”. Selected entries will be realized in the People’s Worksite during the Triennale period, along with a series of special events.

The Triennale period will run from September 13 – November 30, 2008. There will be a Preview Day in SL on the 11th of September, 6pm – 4am SL time. The Vernissage and in-world Official Opening Party will be on September 12, 2am – 4am SL time. You can visit the Yokohama Triennale official website for more information about the real world event in Yokohama, Japan.

Avatrian is currently working on the RMB City construction, but you can see the city’s progress by visiting the RMB City Preview Center.

If you wish to submit entries, please send your ideas by email to: info@rmbcity.com (Subject: Yokohama Dream Proposal) before October 10, 2008.
