Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 17th July, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, where we will be learning all about the special Second Life educational establishment that teaches you all about building (and much more) in Second Life – Builders Brewery!

We visit the Brewery with Sensuous (Sen) Maximus who explains something of the history of the Brewery, and also the different elements on offer, including stores stocking materials for building, a sandbox and a terraforming area. We visit classrooms and Saffia actually attempts a class and discovers how to build a special summery creation!

We also talk to Yen Verhoeven who is carrying out research for her Ph.D thesis on Virtual Learning: An Application of Constructivist Grounded Theory to Explore Emergent Learning in Second Life through studying what forms of learning emerge through the practices found at the Builder’s Brewery as part of her work towards developing a virtual theory of learning.

It all makes for a fascinating show, so join us at 2pm SLT in the studio.

Sadly, we only have time to show a small sample of what was on display at SL14B, but fortunately Wildstar Beaumont was on hand with his trusty camera to show much, more more!

In addition, you can see the talks Saffia did with Lindens from the Lab at SL14B on the Second Life YouTube channel.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a visit to the beautiful and creative region of Idle Rogue home of the famous Guerilla Burlesque, the After Dark Club and so much more – is now on the web!

We are shown around some of the many venues that are contained on Idle Rogue (and Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to capture photographs of more), as we explore the region with the owner and moving force behind the community, Cherryblonde Scribe, and with other active members of the community – Sho Kyong, POL Arida and Arrehn Oberlander.

Sho Kyong shows us the gradual evolution of a dance, taking inspiration from one of POL’s songs. We explore how the sets, the choreography and the music are all combined to create the final performance. And we see how the Metaharper tools are used – designed by Arrehn Oberlander, this scripting system not only enables choreography in the conventional way but also – as Saffia discovers – allows people to try out dances for themselves.

And all this takes place in a stunningly lovely region with a strong community that really is a joy to explore.

Garden of Dreams Opening Party Invitation

Garden of Dreams Opening Party Invitation

As many of you know, the Designing Worlds studio has been based on Kayle Matzerath’s Garden of Dreams for a number of years now, and we have been very happy there. Now Kayle has redesigned the whole region, and built us a whole new studio!

It is – of course, because this is Kayle Matzerath – a wonderful new build. And not only that – Kilik Lekvoda has brought Titans, his lovely store of the cutest fantasy avatars, to a new home on Garden of Dreams.

Our new studio

It’s going to be a great party – make sure you’re there!
