Exodus, a Trip for Life, by Kicca Igaly & Nessuno Myoo

Exodus, a Trip for Life, by Kicca Igaly & Nessuno Myoo

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 13th November, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we will be exploring some of the Artist in Residence regions of the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA).

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.

OUTRAGE!!! by Rage Darkstone

OUTRAGE!!! by Rage Darkstone

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!

Go to http://lea-sl.org/form/lea-air-land-grant-application-round-fourteen to find out more (and if you would like to apply yourself).

Baskinta: An Experiment in World Peace by WrenNoir Cerise

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.

This is a fascinating show, so do come and join us at 2pm!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 6th November, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we visit the fabulous Burn2, the Second Life representation of the famous Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.

The theme this year was Radical Ritual, and the Burners celebrated that theme amazingly!

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.

It all makes for a stunning show, so do come and join us at 2pm!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 30th October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, for a spooky tale in a very spooky location – Octoberville!

We start by talking to Cherub Spectre and Master Kaos, the owners of Octoberville, who tell us all about the wonderfully spooky – and hugely popular – region they create for one month every year to celebrate Halloween. We explore Octoberville and learn something of its history – with roots in the real world, as well as its developments in Second Life. And we find out all about the amazing community that has grown up around it.

There’s still time to visit as Octoberville will be open till early November!

Then, in the second Part of the show, we have a spooky tale for Halloween (filmed largely in Octoberville). It’s the famous story by Washington Irving – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, adapted especially for the show by Caledonia Skytower.

It all makes for a really wonderfully haunting Halloween show, so do come and join us at 2pm!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 23rd October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we will be travelling out of Second Life to visit the Inworldz grid, and discover non profit activities that are happening there.

Inworldz is one of the ‘walled garden’ alternative grids, which are based on the technology of Second Life, although many – like Inworldz – have developed their own alternatives to some of Second Life’s developments. But the ‘walled garden’ grids are different from the Open Grid and other associated grids like the Canada Grid, in that they don’t allow hypergridding – that is jumping from grid to grid.

Hope Village, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

The advantage of the walled garden grids is that they offer the ability for creators to sell their work, and a measure of protection from copyright theft, and also, usually, at a cheaper price for land than Second Life. The downside is that for these grids to be sustainable, they need to attract a certain level of creators and residents – and that can be hard. But Inworldz is a grid that has succeeded better than most, not just in attracting residents but – and this seems to be the secret of successful grids – in building communities. Tinies, dinkies and elves all have strong communities here – and there are opportunities for ordinary human avatars – and creators too!

In this show we look at some of the nonprofit communities in Inworldz, centred around Hope Island. We talk to Miss Eilidh McCullough and Bain Finch, and take a trip around the Hope Village community. And we also explore Relay for Life of Inworldz which was coming to its fruition the week we were over there.

It makes for a really fascinating show, so do come and join us at 2pm!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 9th October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, where we will be exploring the beautiful Riviera Estate – and the amazing funfair that is a part of it!

With the escort of the owner, His Royal Majesty King Brick Haworth-Masters, we will be exploring his lovely house and grounds – but we’ll also be visiting the amazing funfair he hosts up in the sky – and trying out a few of the rides.

Entrance to the Funfair

Entrance to the Funfair

The estate is attached to the beautiful – and exclusive – Grove Country Club, and the proper entrance to the Estate is located at the gates there – leading to a gondola trip followed by a carriage ride to bring us to the house itself.

Both the house and the funfair are open to the public, as are the concerts in the grounds (one of which we are able to join).
