Character design for The Defenders Chronicles: The Spectral Wolf

Video

The Defenders is a collaborative open transmedia storytelling developed in many blogs, Flickr and Second Life, mostly by photography, and open to anyone that want to get involved into create fantasy action.

Here you have The Spectral Wolf, one of the characters and part of my contribution to this tale. It was designed for a photo-performance in our Alegria’s Bay (ALEGRIA Studio’s virtual parcel) having in mind the mesh land impact, the parcel prim limitation and lag impact, all them limitations of Second Life virtual world.

Designed, modeled, textured and set in wold by myself using Blender, ZBrush, Photoshop and Second Life’s Editor.

Filmed in Alegria’s Bay, Pegasoi sim, Second Life.

[DREAM] LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD – AVATAR RUSTED HEART

Avatar Rusted Heart

Avatar “Rusted Heart” (by Noke Yuitza; photocredit Alpha Auer)

This avatar is the Rusted Heart, one of the characters in “Love is a Battlefield”, my surreal cyberpunk art installation for The Museo del Metaverso (in Craft Virtual World). These damaged hearts in battle are taken by Drones Collectors under the watch of the Great Collector. But, why is it collecting rusted hearts?

The Rusted Heart Avatar is an exclusive item for Fantasy Fair 2015 that you only will be able to get in the Auction. You can wear it as avatar or use it as decoration for your place. 100% of the sale of this item will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Watch a preview of Love is a Battlefield from min. 3:07 to 3:34:

Why I Relay?

My grandma passed away at the beginning of this year due lung cancer. She had it for years, but It was too late when doctors visit her. She was not a smoker, as her sister, that also died due lung cancer a year before. She was born into difficult times and suffer the Spanish civil war. She was of the type of never complain due pain. And she was my family pillar.

I was raised by her. I came to life with her 2 years ago, when we knew she had cancer. We born same day, same month, but in a different era.

In my first incursions with science communication using Second Life, I had the pleasure to organize some debates and lectures about cancer, from a research and social point of view. I’ve never forget the words of the patient that came to talk about her experience, about how is to live with cancer and about the importance for patients to be treated with normality.

One never think how important is until it touch one… but I believe in people’s power to change things and turn them into wonders. Just taking action. We are not as alone as we think 😉

I guess this is why I relay.

I want “to see an end to the heartache this devastating disease cause”, as Duchess Flux says.

Hugs

Drones capturing rusted hearts in LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

Drones capturing rusted hearts in LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

If you have a rusted heart, be careful with the drone collectors ;)…

Some days ago the MdM (Museo del Metaverso) reopened in Craft with some cool artists coming from Second Life and Hypergrid. You can visit its website to see some photos and get the Land Marks-taxi and I recommend to you to click in”Artists” in the main menu cause the list its the huge enough to don’t display the entire submenu of artists in all screens.

Mine is the following one: Love is a Battlefield. In my line of dreaming the future with some surreal cyberpunk style, I’ve created some drones collecting rusted hearts. It’s inside my DREAM saga, as you will recognize by one of its characters. There are 3: the rusted hearts, the drone collectors and the great collector. You can turn yourself in one of the characters, the rusted heart, and be part of the installation by getting the avatar as gift at the shop of the MdM.

Some extra data: my avatar during the MdM opening was the drone collector carrying a heart. The drone is my ALEGRIA Dream Mask that you saw in La Metallique Fair, The Sea of Cubic Dreams during the performances and these days in ArtFest’15 in Second Life.

Enjoy 😉

“Tears in Rain”, Singularity Tribe electronic music podcast mixed by ALEXI

“Peace, love, unity…”

When Dj Alexi Ayres ask me if I would like to do the cover art for the last Singularity Tribe podcast using my Tears in Rain graphics, I didn’t know how much this immersive electronica session, inspired in cyberpunk culture, fits and follows the evolution of the original story, recreating a cyberlandscape that born and dies at the rhythm of dropping words as “replicant”, “transhumanism”, “technohuman”, “cyber-renaissance”, … words that I’ve try to reflect in this cover art using Bruna Husky’s Memory Fragment 16 “The Beauty” (from Rosa Montero‘s book Tears in Rain, which title is a tribute to Blade Runner film).

Enjoy it!

IMMERSIVE WOR(L)DS – VIDEO PART 2: lecture and artists

Featured

This is the second video about the opening of IMMERSIVE WOR(L)DS, event organized in Second Life by the groups Libriamo Tutti and Arte Libera and the Brera Academy (Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan, Italy), where we can see and hear some bits of the books that inspired our exhibits (artists exhibits) for the project read vividly during the visit by:

  • ALEXANDRA SHEPHERD, passage of “Narciso e Boccadoro” (Hermann Hesse) for “L’OPPOSTO E IL SUO COMPLETAMENTO”, by Giovanna Cerise.
  • HELENITA ARRIAGA, passage of “Il pozzo e il pendolo” (Edgar A. Poe) for “IL POZZO E IL PENDOLO”, by Nessuno Myoo.
  • SIMBA SCHUMANN, passage of “Lacrime nella pioggia” (Rosa Montero) for “LACRIME NELLA PIOGGIA”, by Noke Yuitza.

Description of the event

Words and Worlds are the themes that form the backdrop of the event that Libriamo Tutti and the Brera Academy, in collaboration with IF2012 Imagine the Future, organized Saturday, June 30, at 10:30 am, at the Napoleonico hall of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera.

WORDS: because we asked some digital artists to create works of art, inspired by literary works.

WORLDS: because, to admire the works of art, we have put in connecting virtual worlds and physical worlds, by talking avatars who populated the virtual headquarters of the Academy of Brera in Second Life, with lovers of art and literature that have instead met in the physical location of the Academy.

A partnership between literary art and figurative art that has found its meeting point in the use of new technologies offered by the Internet, to stimulate sharing and interaction, eliminating the gap between artists, readers and viewers.

During the meeting, the reading of texts and stories has been integrated with the artistic exploration and discovery, the images are intertwined canceling spaces, dialogue developed between concrete spaces and web platforms.

Vintage Red Doll in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Image

Once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin’s back,
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.

Oberon, King of the Fairies

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, scene I, Act II, William Shakespeare.

The old rag dolls of poor girls were made of colorful materials like potato sacks filled with sawdust, and even then sure they were so valuable for them as portals to their dreams, as the stars for a midsummer night.
