Una muñeca de trapo pelirroja en el sueño de una noche de verano

Image

Ven aquí, gentil Puck. ¿Te acuerdas de cuando me senté en un promontorio y oí a una sirena, sobre el dorso de un delfín, entonar un aire tan armonioso y dulce que el turbulento océano se apaciguó a su canto y determinadas estrellas se apartaron bruscamente de sus
órbitas, para escuchar la música de la virgen de los mares?

Oberón, Rey de las Hadas

(escena I, Acto II de El sueño de una noche de verano, de 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.

Sacos de patata rellenos de serrín, palos, alambres y cuerdas… Las muñecas de trapo de antaño de las niñas pobres estaban hechas de materiales variopintos reciclados y, aún así, seguro que eran tan valiosas para ellas como portales a sus sueños como lo son las estrellas para una noche de verano.

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.
