LEA Announces Round 8 AiRs!

Uan Ceriaptrix - Round 7 - LEA14

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

  Mario2 Helstein                                
  Whiskey Monday                                                                  
  Misprint Thursday                            
  Haveit Neox                          
  Lorin Tone                            
  FreeWee Ling                                   
  Solkide Auer                         
  Mistero Hifeng                                 
  Art Blue                                             
  Giovanna Cerise                               
  frankx lefavre                                   
  NaTaS Janus                         
  Sniper Siemens                                 
  Asmita Duranjaya, Sable (snakeappletree)
  Lemonodo Oh                                   
  Gracie Kendal                                   
  Krystali Rabeni                                 
  Mary Wickentower                          

The LEA received 40+ 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 (though many have suggested they will be completed sooner), 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 seven 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!

  1. Thanks very much to the Committee for providing this opportunity. I'm sure it will be an outstanding resource as I pursue my fellowship in Australia and try to flesh out a lot of ideas.
