Designing Worlds is back for our autumn season – and we have some interesting shows lined up that will take us to a range of locations in Second Life … and to other virtual worlds as well!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 18th September, for the first episode of the new season of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, where we will be looking back to the Relay for Life of Second Life Weekend held in July, looking at some of the stunning builds that were created there, and talking to just a few of the many, many people who were involved!

The Relay for Life weekend is the pinnacle of the annual campaigning for Relay for Life of Second Life, with the track running around amazing builds created by the organising committee, and past the stunning campsites created by the individual teams. We’ll be sharing builds that are beautiful and builds that are informative … and builds that are a micture of both!

It all makes for an amazing start to our new season, so join us at 2pm SLT in the studio.

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.

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 ay 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.

So do join us at 2pm today in our wonderful new studio for a fascinating and beautiful show.

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist – or catch it later in the week on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.
