LEA8 - MetaHarpers a flight into 2BR02B - By Art Blue

DATE: March 31, 2016
TIME: 1:00 PM SLT (12:00 PM SLT for special flights - 2:00 PM SLT Venus Adored Performs)


For 20 minutes yesterday I enjoyed a CAM-flight around the SURREAL TOWERS on LEA8.  Using a technology which takes over your camera view, it takes you on a flight path like you are in a slow roller coaster, but it gives you a lot of time to let things rez.  Arrehn Oberlander developed this tool called Metaharpers which allows you to look inside the Surreal Towers in ways that would be difficult without a guide.  It is especially useful when it comes to the installment by Mikati Slade - What a fun build!  All the tiny pieces, all the colors, all the little things moving around a birthday cake! A must see before the sim closes! Just finished today - she says it is one of many designs she wants to bring to the IMMERSIVIA at Santorini Bienniale in late summer 2016.

At 12:00 noon - one hour before The Surreal Towers will face their end at 1:00 PM SLT, there will be special flights around all the towers.  Come to LEA8 main area and sit on a chair to enjoy a special tour.

At 1:00 PM SLT the towers get burned down and vanish in the play 2BRO2B written by Kurt Vonnegut in 1962.  Art Blue will present the short novel that you won't forget as it points to the future. The last words of the play spoken by the receptionist at the Federal Bureau of Termination:
  “Thank you, sir," said the hostess. "Your city thanks you; your country thanks you; your planet thanks you. But the deepest thanks of all is from all of the future generations."

The play 2BR02B - 2 Be oR n0t 2 Be - takes 20 minutes to listen on stream which will be played as LEA8 ground music.

At 2.00 PM Venus Adored will perform The Battle for Blue which is also the end of the Surreal Tower installment at LEA8.
