Tansee makes some very special particles!

Tansee makes some very special particles!

Join us at 2pm today, Monday 27th April for the first show in the new season of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we’ll be meeting the installation and particle artist Tansee and learning about her work.

We’ll be learning all about how particles can be created, and Tansee will be showing us work that she has created in collaborations with 2Lei, the Italian group that produces an annual series of installations for the Elimination of Violence Against Woman Day – and also appears at One Billion Rising in Second Life. And we’ll be looking a little more at the collaborative project that Tansee is part of currently on the Linden Endowment for the Arts regions – the Starfall Collaborative Group on LEA8.

The final show in the current season of Designing Worlds – where we meet the film-maker and broadcaster Draxtor Despres – is now on the web.

 

 

Draxtor is now probably best known for his two series, the Drax Files podcasts and the series of the Drax Files Worldmakers – a series of brilliant short, energising films about some of the awesome creators in Second Life.

But Drax has been filming in and discussing Second Life and virtual worlds for a very long time. We take a look at some of his early films, and talk about his evolution as a film-maker – and about Second Life’s evolution too. And along the way we’ll be talking about Flufee on a Meshion, creating comedy in a virtual world, the importance of radio … and how Drax puts the Worldmaker videos together.
