LEA29 . - “Water” by Akim Alonzo at Itakos Project Ocotber 13th at 1.30 PM SLT

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 13:20

  Teleport:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA29/130/127/21

Akim Alonzo is a longtime photographer in Second Life, and returns with this exhibition to communicate with his images on the themes of human emotions and the interpretation of virtual reality through these real categories. Mainly a portraitist, this time he wants to express himself with the virtual landscapes and with the metaphor of the most immaterial element among all, the Water.

Akim says about the exhibition :
We are Water and we can not live without it. Sometimes we are like islands lost in the sea, or we float in lush archipelagos full of life. Water brings with it the meaning of survival, it is the immaterial substance of the flowing time, it is the depth of the human soul, of the vital emotions, of joy and fear, fury and tranquility, of solitude and of love. Water moves me, I am Water.

Noi siamo Acqua e non possiamo vivere senza di essa. A volte siamo come isole perse nel mare, oppure galleggiamo in arcipelaghi lussureggianti pieni di vita. L’Acqua porta con se il significato della sopravvivenza , è sostanza immateriale del tempo che scorre, è la profondità dell’animo umano, delle emozioni vitali, della gioa e della paura, di furore e tranquillità, della solitudine e dell’amore. L’Acqua mi commuove , io sono Acqua.

LEA27 - DC Spensley 12 Year Retrospective Exhibition opening September 22nd at Noon SLT

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 23:06

Welcome to a 12-year retrospective exhibition, presenting artworks created as my avatar, DanCoyote Antonelli in the social, virtual work of Second Life. Sincere thanks to Linden Lab and all the patrons, collectors, collaborators, artists, composers, performers, and engineers who generously contributed to my artistic practice over these years.

The Artworks:
Rather than arranged in chronologically order of creation date, the artworks are grouped within themes explored over the years, in asking the overarching question: What does an art practice “native” to virtual worlds look like? This theoretical construct is what I call Hyperformalism.

The three main types of artwork in this exhibition include Interactive, Aesthetic, and Performative. Interactive works implicate the viewer into the piece, making them the artist. With aesthetic works I attempt to conjure beauty within the virtual space. Performative works include documentation of live theatrical productions with as many as a dozen real-time ensemble performers.

The Architecture:
The virtual space housing this exhibition at LEA 27 is a rectangular volume, 256 x 256 x 4096 meters, called a “sim” or simulation. This sim is divided into 40 numbered “decks” accessible via direct teleport (on the DC HUD) or various chairlifts designed to enhance the journey. The featured 4.5-kilometer “Tower of Light” artwork inhabits the central axis of the sim, from top to bottom.

Each deck serves as a pedestrian walkway with numerous octagonal platforms that give focus to the artworks and complete the viewer experience by providing 360-degree access, allowing each level to be viewed from any angle. Info signs reveal the titles and brief descriptions of artworks, which often require interaction with viewers to be complete.

At level 00 visitors will find a chair lifts and a kiosk to pick up a free “DC HUD”. Take a chair lift to fly through the installation or “wear” the HUD to page through a catalog and teleport directly to one of 40 levels.

Visitors should be aware that most of the scripting in this installation is available as open source. If you see something you like/need, please send IM to Dancoyote Antonelli with your request. This is not commercial software so no “support” per say is offered or inferred. Use at your own risk for non-commercial purposes.

Cheers! And Thank you for visiting!
