Museum of the Moving Image reopens to the public this weekend, there's temporary space for exhibitions and installations: first up is Real Virtuality, an appropriately broad topic; a highlight is Cao Fei's RMB City, two not-quite video games in which the viewer/user tours a city the artist built in Second Life, either as a Wii avatar or a surfer (there's a controller in front of one of the monitors and a custom sensor pad in front of the other; one of the guest curators demonstrated for us, in her stilettos). Think Feng Mengbo's Long March, but with urbanism instead of history...from The L Magazine, 14th Jan 2011.
