Choosing your path through Inis Caiseal by Wildstar Beaumont

Choosing your path through Inis Caiseal by Wildstar Beaumont

This week on Monday September 28th, in a stunningly beautiful archive show, we look back to 2012 and exploring the lovely (and much missed) Alchemy Immortalis estate.

You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo Archive channel at: https://vimeo.com/376727733. And you can join the special Watch Party (at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

#DW156 Alchemy Immortalis – 12 March 2012 from Saffia Widdershins on Vimeo.

Based on rural Ireland (with a lovely French twist in one particularly delicious area!), the regions feature the green and open landscapes, the stone walls and the awesome seascapes that are a feature of Ireland. There are trails for walking or horse riding – and there’s also a series of wonderful roadster tours that one can take – as Elrik does – while Saffia explores a fascinating community project that Alchemy and Immortalis Cyannis, owners and designers of the region, are developing for their residents.

The patisserie!

And Saffia also visits that … mmmm … patisserie!

We talk to Alchemy Cyannis about the beautiful regions she and Immortalis have created, their inspirations and their plans as we explore this unique and lovely region.

And then, of course, there are those sheep …

This is a beautiful look back to a really stunning Second Life estate – So don’t miss it!

Although the estate itself has long gone, sadly, you can still obtain some of the beautiful creations of Alchemy and Immortalis on the Marketplace at: Alchemy’s Attc: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/37216
and: Alchemy Immortalis: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/37272
and in their inworld store: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Seefeld/186/72/751

(Please note that most of the designs are old school, which means they can be prim heavy. Still beautiful, though!)

Last week, Tansee joined the Designing Worlds’ show to tell us all about the launch of the new Second Life Linden Endowment for the Arts (SLEA). This week, for our archive show, we look back to Tansee’s particle installation at the old Linden Endowment for the Arts.

You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/12549439. And you can join the special Watch Party (at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

DW269 – Tansee’s Particles from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We learned all about how particles can be created, and Tansee showed us work that she had 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 looked 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.

Tansee makes some very speial particles!

And Tansee also gave us a sneak preview of the particle displays that she was working on for Fantasy Faire 2015, which were currently in progress when the episode was filmed.

It’s a beautiful show that explores fantastic possibilities in Second Life – so don’t miss it!

We started our new season with a look at the forthcoming launch of the new Second Life Endowment for the Arts (SLEA).

The SLEA picks up where the Linden Endowment for the Arts left off, supporting and encouraging the arts in Second Life. We talk to Tansee and Hannington Xeltentat who originally developed the idea, and to Patch and Brett Linden who have been helping to realise the vision under the auspices of Linden Lab.

This show looks at the structure of the new SLEA and how people can become involved, including how they can apply for grants.

And Patch and Brett also talk about some exciting new packages they are planning to support communities in Second Life!
