Contest: CYBERart @ LEA12

Visit LEA12...


Dear ArtistFellows,

My colleague Sable (snakeappletree) and myself were lucky in 1/2015 to get a LEA AiR. Our target has been to focus on the term CYBER and what it can mean in an artistic way in a virtual world. The art-installation The Paradise of CyberPolis shows our vision of a CyberCity created with prims, sculpts, meshs, hand-drawn and fractal textures, animation and particle- or sound-effects and the use of avi-bots. It is at the same time not only an art installation but also a story-based game, combining several media options in an immersive virtual world.

We see our LEA 12 as a research project too and would like to find out more about the term CYBER. In preparation of our application we had organized a discussion panel and different points of view from various angles have been exchanged concerning the definition of that term.

http://www.ethnomusicscape.de/cyberart/cyberpage.htm

Taking this and the LEA12 - installation as a basis, we would like to continue our survey and are looking for artists who are able to create a piece that has cyber-features, also to provide a statement on their approach which explains why the artwork can be characterized as CYBERart.

We will organize this as a contest with public and jury-voting and the first 3 winners will get 2000, 1000 and 500 LL. Artists, who have an allergy against contests are also encouraged to provide a piece of art without contest.

The art piece can be in 3D or 2D and should possibly refer to or be inspired by our LEA12 environment and installation. It will be placed on a suitable spot later.  It has to be mod/trans NO COPY, should not have more than 40 prims and be no bigger than 7 meters cubed.

The topic is "Cyber"art in all its varieties. Deadline is Monday, 20th April 2015 midnight MET.
Send the piece plus your statement about CYBERart (nc!) to Asmita Duranjaya.

We hope to get stunning pieces of art and are looking forward to your breathtaking entries.

Asmita and Sable

LEA9 - Barefoot Wanders by Rosie Renfew




LEA9 Barefoot Wanders

From Rosie:
I have been given the most amazing opportunity in SL... I've been given half a sim to create Barefoot Wanders on a bigger scale.

I finally feel ready to open it and make it public that it's READY!

I have created 3 domes; The Swing... The Water... and The River... There is a ground landing zone here.  You can collect landmarks to each dome from there.

There are small yellow arrows around the place which will take you to various photography viewing places.









I would love to have a more interactive feel to the installation with all pictures created there on display within the sim.  So... if you take pictures... send them my way.  Either give them to me directly in SL... Put it on the flickr stream and I can upload it to SL.
Basically, however you would like to contribute... get in contact with me, Rosie Renfew.

Check the landing area for TPs to your photo opportunities!







The History of the Vehicle in SL - a Linden Endowment for the Arts Project


Six months in the planning, "The History of the Vehicle in SL - a Linden Endowment for the Arts Project" features the works of close to 50 creators and over 130 vehicles on exhibit. With vehicles in the museum dating as far back as 2005, you will see the evolution of the vehicle from its prim origins, all the way up to the highly detailed mesh wonders of today in the main display exhibit. Builders and creators in this showcase range from the novice to the professional, so be sure to click the signs near the exhibits for more information.


The showcase has something for everyone; cars, bikes, trucks and more.  The 'Celebrity Tribute' section contains vehicles made famous on film and in television, while the novelty section displays the wild and crazy side of transportation. Feel welcome to wander around the sim and view the whimsical side of vehicle building, snag information about vehicle racing in SL or just sit in one of the many quiet spots under a gazebo or in the memory garden.


Weekends will bring entertainment from tribute concerts to live DJs.  Be sure to take a copy of the entertainment schedule in the main reception area.

Showcase will run from April 1st to May 31, 2015

Opening Today CITY INSIDE OUT



THE EXHIBIT'S STORY
   
     To someone without a home living on the streets, the bustling city becomes one united exterior. "City Inside Out", explores a world that lacks interiors. Entering any doorway opens onto yet another exterior. Some pedestrians throw coins into the beggars’ hats, others bark insults to their faces. Joggers, dog walkers, groups of boisterous friends, clean people in new clothes, romantic couples, cell phone conversations, shiny traffic, wash their daily tides of health and prosperity past the homeless. Late each night, the people living on the streets are confronted by another kind of crowd, dangerous as the sharp knife and gun. They are defenseless, even within their own bodies. Sensations abound, prickly as lice and poisonous insect infested clothing, blurry as sight without glasses, with ringing ears of imaginary voices, and resignation to untreated illness. The survival test is administered without consideration for those who will see the next day.



LAYOUT OF THE EXHIBIT:

     Built on three levels, the eroding exteriors infuse themselves into the air space of the sky, onto the land of perpetual traffic, and below the land, completing the dominance of the harsh realities into every possible corner. The unbelievable stories of these people are hung out to dry in the wind.



FUTURE EVENT:
     I am planning another event at City Inside Out, in either May or June. It will ask some creativity on your part, if you wish to participate :) A poster will be set up at the landing spots. Please click on the poster for a notecard with description, and info on how you can participate.

Thank you,
Haveit Neox




CITY INSIDE OUT opens Thursday March 26, at 1 PM SLT.
It will remain on view until June 30.

PEARLS – Precious Emotions Are Radiant Layered Sublime

There are 3 places here.  Please walk straight in the direction of the blue arrow.  Inside the white sphere is a twirly object, click on it to be taken to the second place.   Please Note – SET SUN TO MIDNIGHT for the second place, which is called DANCING LIGHTS.  There is a coloured object to click on to take you to the 3rd place.  You have to get near to the transported objects to click on them.  Please turn the sun back to ‘sunset’ for this 3rd place called “Walk Through Words”. 

All three places have transparent “walls” in them that will trigger a sound when you walk through them.  SL has a volume limit on this function, so please use Headphones and have your machine volume as high as you can stand.  When you trigger a sound, hold still for 30 seconds or so before moving on. 

There is a 4th place but it does not contain objects made by me – it contains plants made by Soror Nishi.  Please set sun to ‘Midnight’ again as these plants are at their best at night.  For me, Soror Nishi’s work is some of the best in SL  -  I wanted to see on them on display again.

PEARLS – Precious Emotions Are Radiant Layered Sublime

“We open the door to feelings and start the constant looking at the ones we can see. We learn that all feelings are connected to each other. The feelings we watch are connected to the deeper ones we cannot see. This then can be our path, from the known feelings to the deeper unknown”

Final LEA FULL SIM ART SERIES: Rebeca Bashly's 'When Life Gives you Apples...Run"



REBECA BASHLY, takes the lead at LEA 6 for the final round of the  LEA FULL SIM ART SERIES with WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU APPLES...RUN. This brings the LEA Full Sim art series full circle, as Rebeca helmed the very first LEA FULL SIM ART SERIES event, which was also the very first LEA Art event way back when the sims were created.
.
Please note this is not the final round of the LEA. It is the final round of the LEA FULL SIM ART SERIES in its current format, curated by Jayjay Zifanwe on LEA 6.
.

A full list of the LEA Full SIM offering since inception in 2011 can be found HERE.  This final round of the LEA Full Sim series in the current format runs across March and April 2015.
  
LAUNCH: ALREADY OPEN
LOCATION: HERE AT LEA 6
In Rebeca's Words:

When life gives you apples ... run

Looking at various myths, legends and fairy tales, apple seems to be pretty unfortunate for a woman.

When an apple appears in a story, you know that something will go bad.

From Eve, thru Greek mythology to Snow White there was always a catch with an apple.
It is beautiful, delicious, tempting, seductive. A Perfect disguise for all bad that can come.
I use it as a symbol for the monstrosities that woman too often don't recognize as such in its early stages.

This installation is about domestic violence and eating disorders, on first sight two very different things, but violence against someone and violence against oneself are the same thing, a violence.

Installation starts at the bottom of an eaten apple from where path with teleports develops thru inside.

From ground level only apple is visible,rest is settled in the sky.

Every time visitor gets teleported he has to come back into an apple to continue the path. There are notecards and stories to be collected at each level
