LEA - Round 10 AiR Land Grant Artists

LEA29 - surreal skytower – Round 9

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

Noke Yuitza
Carmsie Melodie
Natas Janus
Fox Nacht
SexyS Quintessa
Solkide Auer & Sniper Siemens
Gem Preiz
Instincta & Stem VanHelsinki
Eupalinos Ugajin
Asimia Heron
Pixels Sideways
Kiesta Aljon and Tangle Giano
Mario2 Helstein
Betty Tureaud
Kara Trapdoor
Mandel Solano
Asmita Duranjaya
Frankx Lefavre

The LEA received 50+ 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 April. Many will likely open sooner, though, so keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous nine 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!
