Gallery Freenote is relocating to InWorldz

December 11, 2012

Many members of the SL arts community know Teal Freenote and her Gallery. Today on her blog Teal has announced she is relocating to InWorldz.
In her blog post announcing the move Teal Freenote says

“It seems ridiculous to keep maintaining such an expensive space when all my creative energy is being funneled on another grid for much less expense and much more creative freedom.”

Teal Freenote describes her work as virtual sculpture that concentrates on symbolic and dream imagery. Teal also works with virtual photography.

The S&S Gallery of Fine Arts has recently opened a new Sky Gallery. The garden setting is situated in in the sky above the main gallery on Artistan. As is S&S Gallery of Fine Arts policy Contemporary digital artists are represented in the main areas.

Burning Life O9

October 22, 2009

I have some more glimpses of Burning Life 09 all of them refer to narrative by either representing it in an obvious manner or attempting to slide away from it.

Gulliver’s travel scene by Ub Yifu and  Copan Falta was certainly catching peoples eye.
The audio streaming from the first of Gulliver’s Travels is by Reverend Upshaw
SLURL Gulliver’s travel scene

Irregularity by Selavy Oh is for me, perhaps one of the most interesting builds at Burning life

‘Irregularity’ consist of 1872 identical poles arranged as a grid which  forms a hollow sphere. A the start of the week the structure is symmetric and regular, but changes as each visitor interacts with the structure. As visitors move around and collide with it poles fall. Although the structure self repairs the poles never take up the same position. This accumulative disarrangement of the structure seemed to be a trace of activity rather than an obvious telling of a story.

Art Evolution Cube is a project by Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo. It caught my curiosity because it aims to represent a process without necessarily turning it into a narrative. Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo are interested in the evolution of a work of art from design on paper to its many possible iterations. Art Evolution Cube attempts to capture this process.

The Camp directory is here and an interactive map lets you teleport to any camp.

Otherwise go to the Main Gate

Australia Council Inter-Arts Grant Winners

July 9, 2008

The Australia Council has announced the winners of their MMUVE IT! Inter-Arts Grant of thirty thousand dollars. The money is for a collaborative, art project in a virtual world.

Andrew Burrell a Sydney based artist, science researcher Trish Adams from Brisbane and startup virtual world VastPark will co-host the final exhibition along with Second Life.

The winning project sounds interesting

“Burrell and Adams will develop a human/computer interface system that explores the artistic possibilities of neuroscience studies. The system will allow viewers to interact with artificial life created in virtual worlds through sensor readings of bodily functions including physical gestures, breath, heartbeat or electrical brain and nervous system activity.”

Andrew Burrell has a second Life blog titled The Palace of Memory

I have been adventuring

June 16, 2008

One of the things I have been meaning to do is to check out the The Garden of NPIRL Delights So while the evening was still young I decided to get a little exercise and take a long slow stroll around the four sims that constitute the exhibit. I did not get around all four sims as over 110 Sl artists have worked on this project.

This SL art show is described as the largest of its kind by Not Possible in RL so when I arrived I was pleased to collect a copy of the Garden Tour Hud which once donned there after you are accompanied by a happy sunflower in the right hand corner of your screen.

The artists, architects, scripters, musicians and planners, and the Not Possible in Real Life group have certainly produced a strange virtual experience as the NPIRL Garden is full of surprises yet many are recognisable as it is as described – a garden of our collective dreams.

Creatures

The strange bird like creatures created by Nonnatus Korhonen followed me in an unnerving manner

Alpha Auer's Public Baths

I delighted in the surreal luxury of Alpha Auer’s Public Baths while bathing with jelly fish and the exhibit created by Darkle Sands left me disorientated.

Art work in NPIRL Delights

There are also installations in the sky that I have as yet not checked out. “The sky is falling” by Henry Segerman is full of arrows.

These are just a few of the exhibits that had me intrigued and fascinated. Since it ends on June 23rd if you have not seen it perhaps you should check it out.
