Archive for February 14th, 2022

Today is February 14th – traditionally Valentine’s Day – but for the last ten years it has also been One Billion Rising in Second Life – a four region collection of art, music, poetry and dance to celebrate and raise awareness.

So today we’ll be looking back ten years to that very first One Billion Rising in Second Life. But at 2pm SLT, Elrik Merlin will be playing a set at this year’s One Billion Rising in Second Life on the Stage at OBR Unite – and we invite you to come and join us – and watch the video later!

In 2013, we took several peeks behind the scenes at how the event One Billion Rising in Second Life was created – and how the music video “Break the Chain” was created in Second Life as well!

We will be filming this year’s event, which we’ll be showing later in the season.

Designing Worlds returns to the Second Life Endowment for the Arts (SLEA), a year after its triumphant opening, to see preparations for the fabulous Crystal Carnival, the Second Annual Celebration of the Arts.

In this episode, the first in our 2022 season, we return to see how the project has developed, and to discover what’s in store at the Crystal Carnival, SLEA’s extensive and impressive Second Annual Celebration of the Arts.

We talk to SLEA Co-ordinator Tansee and to some of the artists (such as Mario2 Helstein) as well as those working behind the scenes (exploring the Music Lab with Livio Korbase and Kalcya), and we take a look at some impressive multimedia installations and other artworks.

And – best of all – the Crystal Carnival continues until February 28th!
