The LEA is pleased to announce the seventh round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full sim for five months on which to create and display their proposed projects:

Giovanna Cerise

Ais Aeon
Pixels Sideways
Uan Ceriaptrix
Mac Kanashimi
MarioZecca Resident
Ellie Brewster
Peli Dieterle
Mandel Solano
Sowa Mai
Kimika Ying
Betty Tureaud
Neeks Karu
FirleFanz Roxley
Octagons Yazimoto
BabypeaVonPhoenix Bikergrrl
Lor Pevensey
KatanaBlender Resident

The LEA received 30+ 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 three months to build their projects (though many have suggested they will be completed sooner), 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 six 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!
