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

This first discussion will be a combination of lecture and discussion, with input from attendees welcomed throughout.

1.  A seated tour and description of the LEA 26 "MadTone" sim.

2.  Basic audio principles, creating and implementing inworld soundscapes,  #2 will keep us busy.

LEA27 - FreeWee's Laboratory v.8.0: Music, Myth, Magic, Light, Shadows, Physics



FreeWee Ling is escaping the brutal northern winter in the warm sunny antipodes during a four month Endeavour Fellowship from the Australia Dept. of Education at the University of Western Australia in Perth. In addition to learning to speak 'Strayan, she is enjoying meeting up with several SL colleagues and friends in rl. FreeWee's LEA sim is mostly serving as a laboratory and demo site in support of her fellowship, so it's going to be a continuing work in progress with lots of odds and ends from past and present work.

Now open for viewing is the latest edition of "Theatrum Instrumentorum," a museum of musical instruments created over the last several years with fellow musicologist Oriscus Zauberflote. The objects are primarily faithful representations of rl instruments, but there are a few creative variations as well.


Since FreeWee is housed in UWA's School of Physics, she has placed some appropriate installations including her award winning nanoprim physics lab.  Also newly opened is her Sunlight Museum, an exhibit about daylight in both SL and rl, as well as simulations of extra-solar suns (i.e., stars). You can put on your goggles and SPF 1000 sun protection and take the elevator to the solar observatory where you can see a giant sun up close and personal, including some pretty spectacular coronal mass ejections. Transport to the Sunlight museum is via rocket ship from ground level.

Other exhibits include the scary Minotaur's cave from FreeWee's full sim Angry Gods installation a few years ago, as well as "A Time Away," a mini-vacation simulator. All are welcome to explore.

The Paradise of CyberPolis Opens March 15th

The Paradise of CyberPolis 

a grey-scaled story and game-based art installation 
by Asmita Duranjaya and Sable / snakeappletree


Official opening: 15th of March 2015 at 1pm SLT. Performance by DJ Ginniji.

Crash-landing on an urban planetary system ...

A researcher is slowly awaking from unconsciousness, starting to explore the environment of an ancient, abandoned cyber-city and to solve its mysteries. Seven letters need be found to experience the last surprising solution.


Become a part of the adventure created by Asmita Duranjaya and Sable / snakeappletree at LEA12.



This is written on the introductive poster inviting visitors to the recent art installation at LEA12. German artist Asmita Duranjaya and Welsh artist Sable (snakeappletree) have created a mysterious, inspiring world consisting of fractal structures (Asmita) applied on sculpties and hand-drawn textures on prims and mesh (Sable) as well using terraforming as a medium of artistic expression. 



The background for this art installation becomes apparent by reading a book-hud (in German and in English) which is provided at the landing spot and can be worn in a corner of the monitor-screen. The story has features of an adventurous but also challenging science fiction game, because the reader has to find letters to open gates with the help of a holographic keyboard and to combine the letters to a final solution word. Step by step the player can explore the intention behind the cyber-scenery and become part of a futuristic environment as an initial point for a philosophical question: 
What is behind the promises of a paradise? 



In Asmita's and Sable's case the answer can be found in the surprising solution of the letter-puzzle and might be disappointing for some or compelling for others.



The installation is a work in progress, meaning it will change its details until the end of the AiR period.  It has enough artistic potential to be explored and enjoyed also without following the game-based story. 



The official opening will take place on 15th of March 2015 at 1pm SLT. DJ Ginniji will entertain the visitors with his pan-Asian-ambient-mix supporting the cyber atmosphere of this LEA sim in an ideal way. Cordial invitation!
