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 in the eyes of Ketk Petrov, “00 years, 00 months and 02 days”

“Open it. It’s a gift”…

With just this words in a message, Ketk Petrov send me an amazing gift, very emotive, from this machinographer to my Tears Rain cyberart installation. When I opened the youtube link that Kekt send me, I didn’t expect to see a machinima that went straight ahead, like an arrow, to my heart, with a very sensitive musical touch suggestion by DJ, artist and friend Morlita Quan (I love Björk!!).

To the ones that don’t know yet about this project, that started nearly a year ago and now it’s close to its “time to die” day, my Tears in Rain is directly inspired in Rosa Montero’s cyberpunk book Tears in Rain, that is at the same time a tribute to good sci-fi gender and it takes the name from one of the most famous dialogs of cinema history: Rutger Hauer’s final dialog in Blade Ranner.

Mahalo!!! 😉

Language: Spanish and English

MEMORY FRAGMENT 01 – TEARS IN RAIN (BY ROSA MONTERO)

Bruna awoke with a start and remembered that she was going to die.
But not right now.
A whiplash of pain shot between her temples. The apartment was in semidarkness and the afternoon light had faded on the other side of the window. Dazed, she looked out over the familiar urban landscape, the towers, the flat rooftops, and the hundreds of windows over which shadows were falling, as the pain inside her head continued to pound.

Tears in Rain, Chapter 1, by Rosa Montero.

So begins Tears in Rain, the book that inspired my art installation (called as Mostero’s book), with that terrible certainty about Bruna’s death…

Tomorrow Thursday 07 you are invited to immerse yourself with the book’s author and me in Scenario 02: “Madrid 2109”, which is the one following Bruna Husky, the female replicant detective protagonist, through 16 present fragments of her memories.

You always love me more, miles away

I hear it in your voice, we’re miles away

You’re not afraid to tell me, miles away

I guess we’re at our best when we’re miles away…

Madonna, Miles Away.

Comic Girl, which was my first exposure in virtual worlds, is the cycle of love and breaking and running through seven phases: the illusion in the beginning to meet someone special, the passionate infatuation, the love more quiet and lodged, the doubt, the pain, the rupture of the heart and soul into mile pieces just after the break and the personal growth that means this process. The alternating phases often are like a roller coaster, not always linear, so the images were displayed as an immersive collage that flooded the virtual museum MKAC, where it was exposed from February to April 2009.

I captured as an experiment in documentary photography the seven stages of this cycle with the help of my webcam while holding “miles away” talks with who was then my boyfriend, being near and far at the same time.

Thus was focused from the female point of view, which did not stop the men who visited her feel also identified and reflected. Because love knows no gender.

Call to participation: “I BRUNA, I REPLICANT”, virtual garden of readers of Rosa Montero’s Tears in Rain.

Some writers can be creators of worlds, stimulating our collective imaginarium into lives we can live without being there, inspiring our creativity. That’s what has happened to me with my muse writer for the lasts months, the great Rosa Montero (Spanish international writer and journalist), with her Bruna Husky and her Tears in Rain universe.

So… what can be more beautiful for a writer than to feel the positive feedback of its readers? I was thinking on that, as reader and creative, to mercy all the help she has and is giving to me with my surrealistic vision of her Tears in Rain (not all writers are so open to freedom versions of their works as Rosa).

It’s because of this that I think it would be a beautiful tribute to her to do a Virtual Garden of Readers  inside my virtual art installation Tears in Rain in Second Life. But without the invaluable collaboration of the readers, cannot grown any a garden, so I need you!!!

Here it goes the information:

Call to participation: “I BRUNA, I REPLICANT”, virtual garden of readers of Rosa Montero’s Tears in Rain.

Algunos escritores pueden convertirse en creadores de mundos, estimulando nuestro imaginario colectivo con vidas que podemos vivir sin vivirlas en realidad, inspirando nuestra creatividad. Eso es lo que me ha pasado con mi escritora musa de estos últimos meses, la gran Rosa Montero (periodista y escritora española internacional), con su Bruna Husky y su universo Lágrimas en la lluvia.

Y… ¿qué puede ser más hermoso para un escritor que sentir la retroalimentación positiva de sus lectores? Especialmente en un momento como el actual, donde lo digital y las redes sociales permiten una mayor interactividad.

Hace unos días empecé a pensar en esto, como lectora y creativa, para agradecerle de alguna manera toda la ayuda prestada en mi visión surrealista de sus Lágrimas en la lluvia (no todos los autores están tan abiertos a versiones liberales de sus obras como Rosa).

De aquí la idea de hacer un jardín virtual de lectores que se expondrá como parte de mi instalación artística virtual Tears in rain en Second Life. Pero sin tu inestimable colaboración, no puede crecer el jardín de lectores!

Por eso…

Participa en “I BRUNA, I REPLICANT”, el Jardín Virtual de Lectores de Lágrimas en la lluvia, de Rosa Montero

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.

Alien Humanity at UWA Centenary 3D Art challenge

Alien Humanity, by Noke Yuitza

Concept, design and textures by myself (less original photographies of the faces and the textures of the ground and the sky).
© noke 2012

Alien Humanity artwork for the UWA Centenary 3D Art challenge it’s the conclusion part of a total of three immersive interventions concerned to our future evolution and the evolution of AIs (Artificial Intelligences) together with Future Communities (SL9B), the introduction part, and Lacrime nella Pioggia (Brera Accademy).

Inside an in-vitro conception between virtual and organic life mix, held by the trinity concept (organic, virtual and spiritual), Future Communities talks about the birth of a new community of transgenic human beings as a result of that one: the technohumans or replicants. Lacrime nella Pioggia follows, into one of those possible futures, the inner evolution and awakening of Bruna Husky, a replicant, in Madrid city on 2109. And Alien Humanity, inspired in a certain way in Mariko Mori‘s intervention Oneness, is concerned about what comes next, maybe at the end, that also can be a new bright beginning, closing the three parts with other in-vitro conception using in it an experiment based on empathy and mirror neurons to recreate in visitors a sense of calm and happiness.

All inspired by the book Tears in the Rain, by Rosa Montero, the anime Ghost in the Shell and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner film.

Lacrime nella Pioggia, replicant eye

The following article is the interview in Italian that Simba Schuumann, from Arte Libera, did to me during my presentation of Lacrime nella Pioggia for “Immersive wor(l)ds“. I hope you’ll like!

Lacrime nelle pioggia” è il titolo del romanzo della scrittrice spagnola Rosa Montero (Salani Editore), scelto per l’istallazione diNoke Yuitza per “Immersive wor(l)ds“. Conosco Noke ormai da diversi anni e resto sempre affascinata dal suo impeto creativo. Mi piace osservarla mentre lavora a un’istallazione, con precisione, attenzione ad ogni dettaglio, cura fino all’ultimo momento di ogni particolare. Arte Libera ha già avuto il piacere di ospitarla altre due volte ed è stata sempre una grande emozione. Questa volta, poi, Noke mi ha coinvolto fino in fondo nell’istallazione, chiedendomi di farle da modella per alcune foto e così mi sono ritrovata ad impersonare tre personaggi del suo libro con tre avatar diversi, tre personaggi di un mondo del futuro, molto diversi dal mio avatar consueto. E’ stato divertente e mi ha ovviamente incuriosita al punto da spingermi a leggere entro l’inaugurazione il libro di Rosa Montero, proprio per il desiderio di capire di più tutto quello che vedevo.

Lacrime nella pioggia installation, Bruna Husky awakening.

Artwork: Lacrime nella pioggia, inspired in Lacrime nella pioggia by Rosa Montero

Download the first chapter here: Lacrime nella pioggia, Rosa Montero (preview) (©Rosa Montero, Salani Editore, 2012)

To have a better experience, try different Sky Settings in Second Life as: Bry’Oh Bluniverse.

Intro: 

There’s a part of us that reminds into cyberspace while we are “AFK”, and that part grows breaded by social techs. It’s our “ghost” conforming our virtual community footprint, a new kind of human heritage. But, how is this going to evolve in the future?

Lacrime nella Pioggia installation follows, into one of those possible futures, the inner evolution and awakening of Bruna Husky, a replicant, in the city of Madrid on 2109.

Concept:

Lacrime nella Pioggia, the book of Rosa Montero that inspires this installation, is one of those big stories, on the line of Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, that can imagine a realistic future with sense, closer to our present time in the important debates of the life (rights, life and death, love, memory,…) probably because Rosa Montero, the author, it’s also a journalists and she has that clinic eye for the analysis. It’s also a story about an inner evolution, acceptation and conciliation of oneself held by it’s mean character, Bruna Husky.

It’s a rich and complex story, so here I’ve just done an approach to Bruna, to her evolution along the story. I have other 2 installations, small ones, based on the “story behind the story” of Lacrime nella Pioggia: Future Communities (for the SL9B) and Alien Humanity (for the UWA’s Challenge). The 1st one acts like a pre-story and the second concludes the circle.

Special collaboration:

Voice: The writer Rosa Montero puts the voice to 16 fragments of the book chosen for this installation by herself due it’s meaning

Fragments in Italian: Simona Scadellari, from Salani Editore

Models: Simba Schumann & Geigel (jjwilfred) Resident

Scripting: Rockerduck Bogdanovich

GAME OVER at UWA
The “game culture” (culture of video-games) is part of our day to day. Xbox, Nintendo, Play Station, … console flood the market with the promise to “Live the Adventure”, to stop being passive spectators of films, of the life, to become the protagonists of incredible experiences. Windows, Mac OS, Linux, cell phones, … None operating system can resists the attraction of video-games.

Aloha player, this is my personal invitation to you to dive into my last creative work, XIBALBA-GAME OVER! (1), an artistic intervention whose stage is the head of a “gamer”, a collage of recycled parts that conform a human being, in the privacy of its room, who plays with Lara Croft, the feminist icon par excellence of the “game culture”.
GAME OVER at UWAGAME OVER at UWAGAME OVER at UWA
(1) Xibalba, the Mayan Underworld, was my subject for the big art intervention “Mexico in video-games, comics and films” with Art Interventions team for Isla del Emprendedor in summer’09. “XIBALBA-GAME OVER!” is just a little window to original Xibalba’s art intervention, a special collage for UWA, and my invitation to live the adventure!

Technique: mixed technique
