LEA21 - Soul of Colors by Giovanna Cerise

For her project "Soul of colors, supported by the Linden Endowment for the Arts.",  Giovanna Cerise presents an initial installation "Variations in The Magic Flute," which will remain on display until the end of August, to make way then for another work.

Color, light, shadow and music intersect in this installations inspired by the famous masterpiece by W. A. Mozart's "The Magic Flute"

The installation , which was presented for the first time four years ago,  unfolds in a series of environments full of references, allusions and allegories, in an infinite game of layers that overlap and intersect.

We give you some tips to better appreciate and interact with this opera:

1. It is best to explore the installation simply walking through, but you get a good effect also flying between locations and by inserting the mouse look.

2. You can listen some the citations of the work by clicking on musical notes, located in strategic points and allow  to activate the music in World.

3. The immersion is also stimulated by the use of poses that encourage interactivity with the work.

King Kong on Skull Island - LEA9 by Oldlex

    King Kong's Skull Island -

    King Kong ,The Eighth Wonder of the World.

    A build by mr.Lex & Misty - based on the King Kong movies.
    20 days of building. 10,000 prims used

What is skull island?

It can be a very dark jungle, it can be a calm and peaceful jungle. It can make you smile or run for your life. We all know the story of King Kong, and now you can see it live. Follow the paths, or take the tps to key places on the island. Feel free to explore it your way. It will change very fast, look up, look down run or walk slow. Turn your sounds up. Hear the life all around you. Are you brave enough to see it in the dark?  

What will you find on the island?

Lush jungles and large mountains, fast flowing rivers and calm lakes, caves to explore and spear fishing too. Hunt with the cave men play with the monkeys. The island is full of life, large and small. Some of them will make you smile and some will make you run. A mix of young and old. The island is mostly an open area. You well find a native village with large wood walls around it. and even larger stone walls that separate a large section of the island. It was made to keep you out or keep some thing in?
The list of animals is a long one, some are animated and some are not, but all are fun to watch. Tp to the key places on the island, view the floating island high above, and watch the birds. Tp to the hunting area, see how long you can last fighting two raptors, or explore the river - find the end of it for a big surprise! Tp up to New York see the large theater where King Kong will escape and climb the sky scraper and fight off the airplanes.

Skull Island is Kong's home , he is KING KONG.

Planned events for July:

Opening day 07/01/2016 - 9 am. slt. - King Kong will roam the island most of the day . 

Egg hunt all day 07/08/2016 - 9 am slt. - King Kong will roam the island most of the day .        

King Kong's live Broadway show 07/18/2016 2 pm slt. - King Kong will roam the island most of the day.

King Kong costume party 07/25/2016 3pm to 5pm slt. - A live dj will rock the island. Wear any jungle or dinosaur costume.  King Kong will roam the island and dance at the party.

LEA - Round 11 AiR Land Grant Artists

LEA22 Funky Junk by Carmsie Melodie
   The LEA is pleased to announce the eleventh round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full 
sim for six months on which to create and display their proposed projects:
          Lemonodo Oh
          Krystali Rabeni
          Subversive Vavoom
          Tahiti Rae
          Storm Septimus
          Giovanna Cerise
          Marcus Parrott

          Mahnong Guardian
          Michael Wexhome
          Bufera Resident
          Medora Chevalier

The LEA received 35+ high-quality applications, and it was a difficult decision, but those selected submitted outstanding proposals that represent a diverse range of virtual art. While a handful are artists returning for a second round, the majority will be exhibiting at the LEA for the first time. Projects range from full-sim immersions, to innovative builds geared specifically for multimedia works such as sound and machinima projects.

Artists will have up to four months to build their projects, with all exhibits set to be open by end of October. Many will likely open sooner, though, so keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous ten rounds of LEA land grant artists-in-residence have resulted in some truly exceptional works, and we anticipate this next group to be just as fantastic. Congratulations to all the artists, we can’t wait to see your vision!

LEA26,27,28,29 - 5 Dimensions presents the PopUpArt Event Grant Winners

Recently the 5 Dimension group of Betty Tureaud, Tansee, Gem Preiz and Mandel Solano invited artists to submit an art object which would pop up from a pad when an avatar walked across it.  Betty provided the script and root prim which made the whole thing work.

More than 30 artists submitted entries and the winners of the two $10,000 linden grants were Frankx Lefavre and NaTas Janus.  Congratulations to these two artists and to all those who submitted entries. There were some truly amazing entries and I am sure it was difficult to decide on the grant winners.

LEA2 Cinema City Opening by Ataro Asbrink

:::Cinema City built by Ataro Asbrink is a city dedicated to important aspects of cinema and movie making:::JUNE 4TH OPENING PARTY WITH MUSIC AND PARTICLES:: 1PM SLT TORBEN ASP  2PM ZEN ARADO 3PM FEATURING ULTRAVIOLET ALTER ::: JOINING WITH IS PARTICLE TOM :::
  :::Cinema City built by Ataro Asbrink is a city that includes building movie sets (installations..) for movie making, one or more movie theaters and educational facilities :::
 :::Cinema City is built on two floors. On the ground is a kind of cellar or arsenal for the movie installations. On the first floor is the city. It is modern city, where you can watch all the movies which are created using the movie sets / installations in the ground area. These movies are live movies, because they don't show any recorded material, what you see is here and now. This is done by using the Linden Scripting Language (LSL) for moving the camera. Just sit on a prim or a chair, push ESC, and you'll see the movie. You can also wear a HUD for watching. Then you can „jump“ into the movie if you like.
In the middle is a plaza with a light fountain. You can use this plaza for: Watching coded live movies, as well as music performances and other things to come. And there's a cinema where you can watch machinimas. Next to the cinema is the „Learning Lane“ with some visual tutorials concerning basic skills of movie making, which will be developed and expanded. After watching and learning you can visit a cafĂ© or a bar.
Contributing artists, who built movie sets are: Giovanna Cerise, Lexi Marshdevil, Moewe Winkler, Noke Yuitza, Particle Tom and Ataro Asbrink.
It's a work in progress, so there will be more and more live movies until the end of July. "Opening June 4th and runs until July 31st 2016."
                          " IT'S ABOUT FILM AND FILMING "
