Digital Art Spaceship

V-Art has selected my work “The End of the World as we know it” for the first exhibition on a digital Art Spaceship that will be launched on their platform in March.

Watch this space for more news from me about the project.

Digital Art Spaceship

Update 03/03/2021:
Well, my project won the competition, I signed an English language agreement with V-Art that gave them the rights to show my work, and I delivered the files needed for the integration of my work in the Spaceship project. But I had to refuse to sign a legal document written in Ukrainian (which I can not read). So they took my project down again. Outrageous business.

Archive with old works

I created an archive with old works at archive.susannelayla.com. If it’s not where it used to be, it’s probably in the archive.

Social media – Facebook

I am taking my @glasslabs.art Facebook page offline soon. At least for some time, maybe permanently. I am fed up with the user interface and the lack of control over the display of images and videos I post there.

If you have followed the Facebook page – or if you are one of the people or organizations I gave the link to – feel free to follow me on Instagram @glasslabs_art instead.

You can also find my work on these links:

Den røde bog (The red book) poetry video

Poem from 2019, video created 2021.

jeg sidder på hotellet
og læser i den røde bog
insekterne smadrer sig selv mod ruden
udenfor tårner byen sig op

et af stederne i den røde bog
fortæller om den tid der er forsvundet
den manglende erindring
de mørke rum

jeg har tændt et bål midt på gulvet
om lidt når ilden væggene
men jeg er ligeglad
for jeg ved
det kun er en drøm
og om lidt vil vi vågne
til den rigtige virkelighed
hvor der hverken er ild
eller hoteller

trykket udefra knuser ruden
rummet fyldes med glasskår
ilden er væk
lyset i rummet skifter
mellem mørk orange hvid grå skygge

blodet strømmer ud på gulvet
den røde bog går fri
men optager elementer fra byen udenfor
og fyldes igen med drømme

Old projects created in Flash

From January 2021 Flash is no longer supported, which means it will no longer be possible to navigate some of my old sites and web projects, Glass & Angels (2008-2015) and Pandora’s Box (retro site with content from 1996-2007). I have decided to take the sites offline, rather than recreating them in a new technology.

It will still be possible to see some recordings and the video content from Glass & Angels in the Glass & Angels archive, and there is also a Pandora’s Box video where you can see a little of what once was.

The domain pandorasbox.dk is for sale, contact me on domain@glasslabs.com if you are interested in taking over the rights.
