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.
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
