La sinestesia musicale e il problema del rapporto suono-colore fu dunque un filo conduttore tra molti artisti ...... ma sicuramente con le sue opere e con le sue esperienze di vita Kandinsky, ne rappresenta la concettualizzazione più fine ed elaborata.

The musical synesthesia and the problem of the relationship sound-color was therefore a common thread between many artists ... but surely with his works and his experiences of life, Kandinsky represents the most refined and elaborate conceptualization.

In order to see the installation properly, please set the WL "Bryn Oh's BOX MetaLES" and high/ultra graphic settings with ALM and projectors active.

     The Astrological Moon: A Series of Talks

I'm diving in to a series of talks on the astrological Moon! The Moon is important to astrology (and to my astrology!) and one of the key themes in A Midsummer Night's Dream and so a fitting exploration for our time during this LEA project.

BEGINNING TODAY and each Thursday evening from 6-7 om SLT, I will talk about an aspect of the Moon in astrology. I'll start with the BASICS :)

These presentations will be in VOICE and ALL ARE WELCOME

     The Astrological Moon: The Basics

My series on the Moon in Astrology begins today, Thurs, May 16, with an intro to the basics:

✰ What the Moon represents in your chart,
✰ Important things to know about the Moon, and
✰ and an overview of what else we'll explore during the series.

If you have your birth chart, have a copy handy! I'll use examples and answer questions as I have time.

We will meet outside the Inn of Infinite Dreams on Midsummer Nights (LEA2).

Aoife Lorefield has been a practicing astrologer for ten years. She publishes a blog and podcast on the lunar cycles, and offers chart readings to clients

LEA1 - Nomads in Space by Venus Adored

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 05:15

DATE: April 30, 2019
TIME: 1:00 PM PDT SLT come early to get a seat!

With the support of Art Blue, Juliette Surreal-D, Hyde Hackl and Art Eames

Join us at LEA1 on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 1:00 PM PDT for an epic ride from reality: The temple of the nomads - to virtuality: The cube of the aliens.

In a short play you will meet Peter Seibt, a painter living in Greece, author of the New Nomads, founder of the International Paros Art Circle, a master in Kyudo (Japanese martial art of archery). In 2015 Peter started GIVE & HOPE where everyone could apply for a painting to share with another person around the globe. -> https://www.paintingsforhope.org/

Watch a small selection out of 1000s of paintings Peter created in his atelier in the installation The temple of the nomads.

From this reality level it will be a short travel to virtuality. Why is it short?
Because Art Blue managed to tame an alien who has the superpowers. When Art Blue first saw the world the alien created he said, “This must be seen before the LEA grant of Louis Wu Cyberklon ends.” Louis is known for his work on reflecting surfaces, same as Mandel is. Many have stepped in to use reflecting surfaces -- but this way, the alien way, is a must to see. Venus Adored worked with Louis, she is the alien -- “taken by Aliens” was for some time her display name and really it is a fitting one.

You will watch two displays by sitting on moving chairs at LEA1: first the museum of the nomads with paintings by Peter Seibt and second you will be transferred to the alien world where Venus has worked out a particle performance, to welcome you. 

Juliette Surreal-D will read the story on stream in voice Art Blue has created around the trip, which is called in honour of the work of Louis, “The Code of Wu.” This title is also a chapter in the book The Brain of Art where an installation of Louis is commented.

Art Eames has coded the chairs to move the audience. Hyde Hackl contributed the communication disc to signal to the alien world.

Please be right in time to get seated. The show starts at 1:05 PM PDT. The event will take in total 55 minutes.

There will be a book published by Art Blue to celebrate the upcoming 85th birthday of Peter Seibt. Luxury and formal dressing appreciated.

LEA9 - Starport Serpentime - Rory Torrance

Sat, 04/27/2019 - 12:47

ARTIST: Rory Torrance
DATE: April, 30, 2019
        Rory Torrance is pleased to announce the opening of his extravagant new show "Starport Serpentime".  It's a continuation and expansion of "The Space Between the World", his installation for the 2018 Santorini Biennale Art Festival which won the Long-Legged Maskitt Award (designed for the festival by Bryn Oh). 
        Due to various issues of lag and such in the Metropolis Grid, Rory had removed a lot of the scripts and simplified the installation somewhat, so he's glad that LEA has granted him a chance to redo it.  With the expanded resources of LEA and a far more extensive inventory, he is confident that the new version of the exhibit will be splendid indeed.  Early reviews by interested parties have enthusiastically reinforced the notion.
        Rory doesn't want to say too much about what his work means.  He says "It's always fascinating to me to hear what other people see in my work.  And often, I'm just the medium of the message, expressing some vague feeling which I myself do not fully understand -- though in this particular case I did happen to have some specific points in mind.  But people see surprising things in my work, and these things often strike me as valid enough and even illuminating, even if i myself had never thought of it in that particular way.  So I'm more interested in the different ways that people will read my work, than in establishing some definitive interpretation."
        Asked if he might provide more information eventually he replies "Quite possibly; in fact, I was thinking of producing some sort of chapbook contrasting the more interesting theories with my own best guess.  I made a short book for the Biennale describing all the components of the original installation.  It gives a bit of an overview of the whole, but it is far from a complete description even of the central installation, much less of the entire picture.  So perhaps I should do a companion volume for the LEA show, although the big picture essentially continues the themes of the central installation."
        And what are those themes?  "Come and see for yourselves.  Come out, wherever you are.  Ships have landed, bearing mysterious strangers and a thousand things to see and play with.   Come fall into the endless sky where radiant crystal birds flock above the broken world.  And if you can, do let me know what you think."
