“Inner Abyss” in Singularity Tribe’s Halloween Stage Fright

Featured

Hidden as a dark hideous animal behind the bushes, our fears awaits for us to fall into our own abyss. The beast growls while watching us walking by the edge of the abyss, hoping to hunt us when we abandon our hopes and fall. We know it is there, but the pain is so strong that we feel attracted by the call of the beast. We are facing dangerous our inner hole, feeding our nightmares while waiting perhaps for that miracle that would save us.

But the dry soil cracks and we start dancing in the air the fall into Inner Abyss.

Inner Abyss is the CG art installation stage I’ve made for Singularity Tribe’s Halloween Festival. The beast emerges and approaches us hidden, as happens with most of ours fears, while we are in agony falling into that deep abyss that is probably well know by some of us. We are alone facing our monster and If we will defeat the beast or die in its jaws, it’s only something the abyss can say.

During this long weekend, you will to experiment live electronica music events starting at 4pm SLT until 12 am SLT to combat the beast in your Inner Abyss at…

FLYER TEARS IN RAIN, TIME TO DIE live music performance by Morlita Quan

TIME TO DIE live music performance by Morlita Quan to put the end to Tears in Rain cyberart installation in LEA10.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like… tears in rain. Time to die.

Blade Runner.

This is not the end of Bruna Husky, the detective female replicant of Rosa Montero‘s Tears in Rain, but yes of its installation in LEA10, that already resisted its expiration day for twice and that was open to public last days of december’12. Let’s say “hasta la vista” to Tears in Rain installation with the Flying Electronica live music of DJ Morlita Quan and with a tribute to one of the most popular dialogs of the history of cinema: Blade Runner’s Tears in Rain soliloquy.

Thanks again to all people that did possible this installation and to visitors. Enjoy!

Time: Sunday 04/14/2013 at 01.30 pm SLT (21.30h UCT)

“Tir Na Nog” multimedia and CG art installation opens its portal gate in Galerie Artemis next tuesday

Tir Na Nog intivation to opening in Artemis

“You are heartly invited to the opening of the exhibition Morlita Quan and Noke Yuitza at the Artemis Gallery”, Duna Gant, CEO of Galerie Artemis.

Thunders and lightnings cross the dark gray sky when the storm rises the ship and breaks it as a nut. Men scream while waves eats them, in a blue hell of salt and water. But sometimes, if the Gods are pleased, the wild sea embrace the castaway in a peaceful hug to deep bottom of its bowels, where the cave is. Only the God of Water, Niska “The Mermaid”, can judge if the soul of a human being is worthy to cross the cave and find the portal gate to Tir Na Nog, the sacred land beyond the sea where the Gods of the Elements live…

Aloha castaway, I’m Niamh, the cyclop fish, “The Storyteller”. If your steps had drive you in front of me, it means that you are blessed by Niska and you can cross this gate. But be ready, cause my scales are telling me that soon something terrible is going to happen… And my scales never lie…

Tir Na Nog (Act I, introduction scene) in Artemis Gallery

It’s a pleasure for Morlita and myself to invite you to come to the opening of Tir Na Nog (Act I, introduction scene) next tuesday at Artemis Gallery in Second Life. This installation in Artemis is the introduction chapter to our under construction CG cyberartistic project in LEA10. In Artemis Gallery we have the opportunity to show what Tir Na Nog will be and share it with you. We have transmuted the gallery into a cave under the sea. The structure of the gallery remains, but now is covered with some sea cyber-fauna and flora.

The chapter talks about the cave as a dimensions crossing, from our land to a magic island where the Gods of the Elements balance our world. In this part of the story the visitor, muted into the character of a castaway, needs to follow the path through the cave and introduce itself to Niamh to get Niska’s blessing to cross the gate.

Day: 16/ 04/ 2013
Time: 22.00h UCT (2.00 pm Second Life time, 23.00h Spain)
Location: Galerie Artemis in Second Life

What’s Tir Na Nog cyberart installation?

Tir Na Nog will be a surrealistic New Media Art installation based on ancient celtic culture, myths and history, mixed in a cyber renaissance concept, where we’ll create a new legend inspired in an impossible romance between the ethereal Dyu and the magic Niska.

It’s an immersive multimedia and CG art installation experience rendered in real-time using the 3D virtual world environment of Second Life, thanks to a grant for virtual land for media artists from Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) non-profits.

Some recommendations to follow to visit Tir Na Nog in Artemis

You need an avatar in Second Life to visit this installation in real-time. You can download Second Life here.

This installation uses ambient music and sounds, so please turn “sounds sim” and set “environment settings” in “Midnight”.

The tour is unidirectional. If you follow the arrows you will find the different levels:

  1. The tunnel
  2. The enter to the cave (where you can take the free gift)
  3. The octopus. Go up the stairs to the octopus level and take the teleport on the octopus eye.
  4. Niamh, the “Storyteller”. The goal: Touch the eye of the cyclops fish to speak with him. There are also 4 chairs situated around the “Storyteller” to wait to listen Niamh’s introduction. If you want to go back to the enter, just take the “Multi Teleport” located near the fish

We would like to thank Duna Gant for invite to us to do this part of our project in Artemis, and we hope you enjoy!

Please, subscribe to our blog in Blogger to follow Tir Na Nog project.

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:

Just one condition: Bruna’s tattoo-line must be visible!

Share your “I BRUNA, I REPLICANT” photo in Rosa’s Facebook Wall here:

Lacrime nella pioggia - I BRUNA, I REPLICANT (Imparafacile insland)

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

“Yo BRUNA, Yo REPLICANTE”, Jardín Virtual de Lectores de Lágrimas en la lluvia, de Rosa Montero
¿Quieres formar parte de una ciber-intervención artística basada en Lágrimas en la Lluvia, de Rosa Montero? Comparte tu foto-retrato con la famosa línea tatuada de Bruna Husky en el mural de Rosa en Facebook hasta el 1 de noviembre y participarás en un jardín virtual en Second Life hecho de imágenes de los lectores caracterizados como la famosa detective replicante.

No importa que la foto sea en blanco y negro o color, de la cara o de otra parte del cuerpo donde Bruna tiene tatuada la línea o que esté retocada con Photoshop o no, mientras la calidad sea buena y se trate de una imagen original. La única condición es ¡que se vea la línea tatuada!”

Comparte tu “Yo BRUNA, Yo REPLICANTE” foto en el mural del Facebook de Rosa aquí:

Si eres usuario de Second Life, también puedes enviar el retrato de tu avatar. Contacta con Simba Schumann,de Arte Libera, o conmigo para conseguir el tatuaje de la línea Bruna gratis para tu avatar a utilizarlo para esta propuesta.

Recuerda enviar tu foto, no un dibujo! (Animales y fotografías de avatares de Second Life con la línea de tatuaje también se permiten).
