Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 3rd October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams  –  as we pay homage to the University of Western Australia (UWA) for their support of art in virtual and real worlds, led by JayJay Zifanwe.

Sadly, changes at the University means that the four regions the University has devoted to virtual art in Second Life are likely to be scaled back considerably in the very near future – although there will still a presence here.

We talk to JayJay and to long term curator FreeWee Ling as we look at some examples of the remarkable art that has been collected through challenges and exhibitions over the years, and we hear tributes from a number of leading artists and machinima makers whose artistic lives have been supported and developed through the work of the UWA.

The first episode of the new season of Designing Worlds –as we look back at some of the great builds we saw this year at the amazing Relay for Life of Second Life weekend – is now on the web.

 

 

We travelled along the track meeting some of the designers of campsites and special designer builds, including Eclair Martinek, Thanatos Souldrinker, Ariana Petrova, and WyldChild Raven of Madd Vibes, Heath and Rory Matters (aka Heath Pevensey and Rory Lamia) and Darkstone Aeon and Bibi Woodford.

The theme of this year’s Relay was Once Upon a Cure – and many of the designers and builders used this to explore stories and fairytales, with stunning results! As you’ll see as we find some beautiful, fascinating and thought-provoking builds along the way.
