Audience at last week’s discussion, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Last week Designing Worlds had a show on Monday and a live recording on Tuesday (and our discussion panel show on the subject of The Future of Second Life will be broadcast next week).

This week, at 2pm SLT today, Monday 28th November, the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams will be a repeat of a favourite episode. Which one?

You’ll have to join us in the studio to find out which!

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we visit some of the regions of the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) – is now on the web!

We take the opportunity to explore 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 look at another form of art as we explore the region designed for dance performances by Royal Shippe and Diiar Vader, before we slip through the fun of Snarl by Kanashimi Mac, and finally visit an installation that blends poetry and art in Invictus, created by Storm Septimus.

The range we see is awesome, and we also be talk 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.

The new episode of the new season of Designing Worlds –as we explore three different stunning locations – each with a very individual take on Halloween – is now on the web – and now we’ll tell you how to get there!

Our first destination offers a collection of beautifully constructed Halloween locations, followed by the Fright Ride to end all Fright Rides! Yes, it’s the special Linden Halloween experience, accessed from the Portal Parks and created by Patch Linden and those amazingly clever Moles – some of whom pop up on the show!

You can find the Linden Halloween Experience (with lots of free gifts) here.

Then our second location is a beautifully dark re-interpretation of a classic children’s tale – Neverland. It’s been created by Tymus Tenk and Truck Meredith for their gorgeous Calas Galadhon estate, and Ty says it’s his first venture into major fantasy. It’s gorgeous, with little sinister touches, located over two regions. Do go and explore – but perhaps you don’t want to enquire too deeply into what happened to the Lost Boys!

Start your exploration with a stunning boat ride here – although you’ll need to carry on on foot is you want to reach the final destination – the ballroom!

And our third and final location is a stunning region that draws on a wide variety of horror tropes – can you spot them all?

It’s the Ironwood Hills – a a beautifully spooky region that is available for exploration throughout the year, but currently with some special Halloween touches.

The new episode of the new season of Designing Worlds –as we visit White Tigers Island to learn all about their very special Pirate Hunt – is now on the web.

 

 

Joey Aboma and Libby – LibertyBelle Lyric tell us all about their music-loving island community, and about the chain of events that led to them taking over the running of the island, and their creative idea to fund it!

We look in detail at how the community came together to create the Pirate Hunt – which is part scavenger hunt and part adventure game, and we have a lot of fun exploring the various tasks, the amazing builds and the stupendous level of detail! We also meet two of the creators who are supporting the Hunt – Athayus Quan and Tristin Quan Bracken of R&R Swag, Raven’s Blade, Allure, and 360 – who tell us how and why they became involved.
