One Billion Rising, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 18th June, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams in Second Life, when we look back at the One Billion Rising in Second Life festival, held on February 14th 2018.

Regular viewers will remember that this year our spring season was a series of retrospectives, celebrating ten years of Designing Worlds. We promised you then that we WOULD be sharing a show about OBR later in the year. Well, this is it!

We looks at the events linked with OBR – the dance, the poetry, the music and the art. This year too we had the #MeToo Forest, where women could share their experiences, and the White Rose Challenge, in support of the Time’s Up movement.

What is One Billion Rising?

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face.  We rise through dance to express joy and community and and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence. We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.

And we here in Second Life are part of this global movement.

Interview with Ebbe Linden, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

The latest episode of this season of Designing Worlds – a very special show as Saffia talks to the CEO of Linden Lab, Ebbe Altberg, better known inworld as Ebbe Linden – is now on the web!

You can see (and hear) an edited transcript of this interview here on Inara Pey’s website, Living in a Modem World, or watch it in full on the Vimeo link below, or at slartist.com.

DW370 – Ebbe Interviewed from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

Linden Lab have recently issued a “Fifteen Reasons to Celebrate” fifteen years of Second Life (the fifteenth birthday is coming up very shortly), which has been seen as a road map for the future of Second Life. Saffia and Ebbe discuss the different elements of this – looking in some detail at proposed changes to the structuring of the Second Life economy – something that will affect us all.

The second episode of this season of Designing Worlds – as we visit a really stunning range of installations at the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) – is now on the web!

DW369 – LEA May 2018 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We talk to Fakey Jewell and Dorian Cao of the Jewell Theatre, who take us on a guided tour of their installation, Snow, on LEA 25, who don’t just tell us about the production they will be hosting and the real life issues that lie behind the play, but also take us to see various projects about Second Life Theatre that they are running here – and introduce us the the world of the story of Snow!

Then Saffia meets Solkide Auer at his installation, The Cave on on LEA19, while Elrik explores The Philosophy of Furniture by Daark Gothly, Mazie Halpern and Cienega Soon on LEA 18. And Saffia takes a stroll through Ediola on LEA24, created by Livio Korobase with Footnotes by Arts Oluja – a really fascinating study of visions and ways of seeing. Finally, they visit Unititled on LEA28, created by Storm Septimus, another monumental and stunning installation, this time about the nature of pain.

In addition, Wildstar Beaumont explored three further installations to create a truly wonderful slideshow for this episode: Demiurge & Sapiens by Gem Priez on LEA29; Seductions by Lorys & Alo on LEA 23; and Entropy V – Diabolus Juvante by NaTaS Janus on LEA 21.

You’ll be able to see all these installations until the end of June when a new round of Artists in Residence begins. And if you have been inspired by what you have seen at the LEA and would like to apply for a six month grant of a region of your own, check out the application form here: http://lea-sl.org/form/lea-air-land-grant-application-round-fifteen

The LEA welcomes established and first time artists.
