Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 14th November, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams – where we will be visiting some of the regions of the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) and exploring the work that some of the artists have produced as a result of the six month grant of an entire region.

And there’s real diversity on offer, from the beautiful Monochrome installation created by Giovanna Cerise, to the fascinating watercolors that you can wander in, created by Ceakay Ballyhoo. Then we’ll be looking at another form of art as we explore the region designed for dance performances by Royal Shippe and Diiar Vader, before exploring the fun of Snarl by Kanashimi Mac, and finally exploring an installation that blends poetry and art in Invictus, created by Storm Septimus.

The range we’ll be seeing is awesome, and we’ll also be talking about the next round of grants for LEA regions. You too could have an opportunity to follow your dream of creating a region wide installation (and probably with the full 30,000 li/prim limit we are promised soon). To do this, go to: http://lea-sl.org/form/lea-air-land-grant-application-round-twelve and complete the form.

This is going to be a beautiful and intriguing show, so do join us to watch it at 2pm SLT.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we visit Burn2 and celebrate the life and work of Ladyslipper Constantine – is now on the web!

Burn 2 is the inworld realisation of the famous Burning Man Festival held annually in the Nevada desert. We look at some of the amazing art of display, taking a balloon trip around the site, seeing the famous Burning of the Man and the Burning of the Temple, and talk to Duna Gant and iSkye Silverweb, who were both centrally involved in Burn2 this year.

We also remember Ladyslipper Constantine, a dedicated Burner and a keen Lamplighter at Burn2 events, who died recently. Saffia filmed a special Celebration of her life and work as a volunteer for numerous organisations and events in Second Life; an extract from this is shown in the episode, but you can also watch the full Celebration here:

It all makes for a very special show!
