Winter Nightfire’s wonderful creation for the Survivor and Caregivers’ Camp at Relay for Life is now available on the wb, and offers a fascinating introduction to the work of this powerfully moving artist.

Winter talks to Elrik about her work, while Saffia explores the much-admired installation that Winter created for Relay for Life – took you on an allegorical journey from the bleakness of diagnosis, on a long and difficult journey, with places of beauty for reflection and hopes for the future (the ruined cancer hospital is inspiring and poignant, a very special place) – till the journey reached its apogee in a burst of colour, excitement and sheer fun with a huge funfair.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 26th August for another episode of our new season of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams.

This week we pay a second visit to the Relay for Life Weekend installations – but this time we have the opportunity of looking at the work of an artist celebrated for her artworks in Second Life but who created the most amazing installation for the Relay for Life Weekend.

One of the highlights of this year’s event was the wonderful Survivors and Caregivers’ Camp created by the artist Winter Nightfire.  This took you on an allegorical journey from the bleakness of diagnosis, on a long and difficult journey, with places of beauty for reflection and hopes for the future (the ruined cancer hospital is inspiring and poignant, a very special place) – till the journey reached its apogee in a burst of colour, excitement and sheer fun with a huge funfair.

It was a spectacular, beautiful and powerful build – and we will be exploring it in detail on this week’s show.

And we will also be talking to Winter about her art and her work for charity within Second Life – and the crossover of the Artathon at the Second Life Community events.

It makes for another great show – so do come and watch it at 2pm!

Don’t miss our return from our summer break with the first episode of our new season of Designing Worlds, as we explore just some of the amazing builds that formed part of this year’s Relay for Life weekend.

We visit the beautiful Luminaria ceremony, as we watched it take place outside the telethon studio. We take a look at the telethon studio, which won a design award, and the designer build on the sim, created by our own Beq Janus, took third prize in its category. We talk to Beq about her amazing Escher build (and Saffia will be taking the opportunity to explore the underwater aspects of the build as well!).
