In this episode we explored Costa Rica in the company of Giancarlo Takacs, the founder of Costa Rica, MariellaAnna, who is one of the Events Directors and Mimi Juneau, the Doyenne of Fashion, who held regular events in Costa Rica.

We explore locations used to host some of the fabulous events hosted in Costa Rica, and talk about these, as well as the natural beauties of this stunning estate, and the importance that the real life Costa Rica has played in the creation of these buildings – whether it is the Opera House, the Music Temple, the Welcome Cente, the volcanoes … or the Costa Rican-themed headquarters of Prim Perfect, created by Dijodi Dubratt.

It was the first show of the new season – and one we had been looking forward to for some time!

DW429 Second Life Endowment for the Arts – Opening from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We visited the brand-new, just-opened regions of the Second Life Endowment for the Arts – the SLEA. It’s the new initiative by Linden Lab and Second Life residents to give artists a place to create, display, share, learn, and teach.

We have a good look round at some of the current installations, and talk to some of the movers and shakers behind the project, including SLEA Coordinator Tansee, SL Liaison Safar Fiertze, and artist Regi Yifu. We visit Viktor Savior’s fascinating presentations of Slavic history and folklore, and we talk Machinima with SLEA Media Curator Wizardoz Chrome; and we go under the sea to learn about Nellie the turtle and our relation to the oceans with Briony Writer and Jaz. There’s a stunning slideshow from Wildstar Beaumont, and much more.
