The White Cliffs of Dover by Tahiti Rae

The White Cliffs of Dover by Tahiti Rae

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we explore some of the Artist in Residence regions of the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) – is now on the web!

Artists in Residence at the LEA are holders of an LEA Land Grant. This is a six monthly program to distribute 20 regions (LEA10-LEA29) donated by Linden Lab. These regions are to be used to promote art and artistic endeavors in Second Life.

Full regions of virtual land are made available to in-world artists through an application process.  The AiR Land Grants are held for six months, and artists are free to use that time to create, amend, develop and display their work. Application cycles are announced through various LEA channels – and we’re in the middle of an application process right now!

OUTRAGE!!! by Rage Darkstone

OUTRAGE!!! by Rage Darkstone

Artists may be experienced and well-known in Second Life, or they could be new and exploring Second Life’s potential. On the show you’ll meet both artists who have held AiR grants before – and artists for whom this is their first AiR grant. And there’s a fascinating range of installations to seem, from The White Cliffs of Dover to a steampunk psychological mystery, from angular prim installations to an exploration of a project to promote world peace, from an examination of the avatar experience and narratives, to a visualisation of the experience of real life exile.

You can see the regions here:

Saffia was unwell for the filming of this episode, so Elrik is joined by our old friend Caledonia Skytower. to explore the art and the iconic events that form essential parts of the Festival. We talk to artists and organisers, and we also have footage of the amazing Burns themselves – the Man Burn and the Temple Burn, with extracts from the dances of the Lamplighters.

LEA4 – Poetry of the planets – Mercury

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a visit the Linden Endowment for the Arts – is now on the web!

The Linden Endowment for the Arts (known as the LEA) is a group of 29 regions, donated by Linden Lab to the residents for the promotion of the arts on the grid, and managed by residents. There are two groups of regions – the Core Regions, which consist of nine regions that are generally occupied for three months at a time (although people can occupy them for shorter periods or apply for extensions), and twenty AIR Regions (or Artist in Resident Regions) which are granted to residents for a six month period.

Currently, applications are open for Round 13 of the AIR Land Grants (they close on May 3oth). That means that if you would like a full prim region on which you can build an installation, you can find out more and apply here.

LEA15 - Gardens By the Bay

LEA15 – Gardens By the Bay

So, in this episode, Designing Worlds takes a trip to the LEA to see what sort of installations and events people have used their LEA land grants to create.

Firstly, we travelled to the gateway region of LEA3 before exploring The Anthropic Principle, one of two fantastic installations created by Gem Preiz. Then we saw film and photos of a range of other installations (captured, of course, by Wildstar Beaumont!) before visiting the installation the Poetry of the Planets created by Caledonia Skytower.
