We’re joined by Jacon Cortes de Bexar, Twelfth Night Egerton de Bexar, Tiamat Windstorm, Olavi von Hirvi, and Pamus Bing, co-owners of Antiquity. We begin by exploring Coyningham House and its grounds as we learn something about Antiquity and the role of history in the estate.

Then we cross a beautiful lake and take a carriage ride to the incomparable Buckingham Palace, which we explore with two of the creators – Jacon Cortes de Bexar and Twelfth Night Egerton de BexarNight.

And just for force of contrast, we end by exploring a very different side of Antiquity as we visit a pirate den!

So please join us at 2pm for a really visually stunning show.

The University of Western Australia in Second Life, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

First – we’ve had some great news … Following a lot of work in the background at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in real life, the UWA presence in Second Life has been extended through to 31st July 2017. Four of the five regions will remain part of the UWA cluster, and the 5th SIM (UWA Virtlantis) is being taken over by the University of San Jose & Sonicity Fitzroy, who have been occupying it for the last couple of years.

As you’ll see in the show, it did look as though the presence of the this major art venue and supporter was – at the very least – going to be scaled back considerably. We’re delighted that this is no longer the case.

So please – enjoy the show!

 

 

We talk to JayJay Zifanwe, the academic at the UWA whose project this has been, 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.
