Taking Snapshots at the Fantasy Faire

April 20, 2010

I have been taking snap shots for fun at the the The Fantasy Faire. There are loads of fantasy designers booths to visit, enthusiasts to meet, and performers to hear. All are at this 9 sim event to help raise money in the fight against cancer.

There is more information on the Second Life Fantasy Faire 2010 blog.

It is worth coming out here just to to take a stroll as there are some lovely spaces.

Needless to say once I decided to slow down, let this rez properly and started to take some photos I appreciated the work that has gone into these sims.

Slowing sown and taking a look meant that by chance I discovered that there is a hunt on of Blueish/purple ribbons. Buy them for 0 Lindens and inside are gifts!

I have only explored a fraction of the Fantasy Faire as of course there is a large underwater section too

50 Linden Friday bargain at Elate!

November 13, 2009

I try and keep to spending just my stipend and 50 Linden Fridays really help stretch the budget.

This week at Elate! the special item is the navy blue version of the new Tuli sweater dress.  It is more than a simple budget stretcher I can see this becoming one of my favourites. So much so I am considering blowing the budget on other colours in the same style.

As you can see it is well made.

The dress has a cowl neck that you can snuggle into like a scarf. Actually the cowl can be worn on it’s own as a scarf so if you like mashing stuff up a bit there is opportunity to enjoy this outfit even more.

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

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 virtual Imagine Peace Tower a tribute to late John Lennon opened in Second Life hours after lighting of the Tower in Iceland. The tower in Second Life was modeled after the real-world version and was commissioned by Yoko Ono.

Exhibit at the Criss Museum of Contemporary Art

September 14, 2009

I wanted to share the news as I have another exhibition up at the Criss Museum of Contemporary Art.

Described on their website as “… a museum dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting contemporary art from across second life galleries and  continually changing program of exhibitions …” I was very pleased to be invited!

When I first visited the Museum I was impressed by the building, for it is unusual, and my work sits well against the walls.

Also as I poked around a bit and joined their group. The Criss Museum  holds numerous interesting arts related events, from poetry readings to concerts and dances. You can track these on the events page on Criss Museum website. Recently for instance they ran a 9/11 Art competition

Exhibitions are ever changing so you never know what you will discover there and the Criss Museum runs an educational program which covers different topics weekly. So, it’s an interesting place to have my work represented.

Exhibition lasts until October 2nd so do pop along and see it and if you like their range of events consider joining the group.
