In ALEGRIA Studio

Featured

The ALEGRIA Studio is a recently formed studio in Second Life by a group of professionals in the field of New Media Art and Communication, dedicated to the production and design of cultural and educative projects in virtual environments. Although this is going to be the first project of the studio in a metaverse platform, all members have an extended experience in the world of the arts in real and virtual worlds.

Springs blossom into a brand new project: The ALEGRIA Studio.

And we have started to work into what will be our first project: Theater Night’s Dream. You can see in world a preview of it in Art in Hats 2014, where we participate with the hats of some of our main characters, and the Art Game installation The Sea of Cubic Dreams in LEA25 from summer to the end of 2014.

Dream, opening Monday 17 at 1.30 PM

FLYER Dream (By Noke Yuitza for Arte Libera)

A woman sleeps embracing her pillow and  her transparent  alter ego embraces her, while another part of her looks at both with lovely eyes. She is good, she feel her complete. It will be the same when she’ll wake up?

Simba Schumann, Arte Libera gallerist, during Dream presentation.

Thirza Ember interviewed yesterday Simba and me in Life is but a Dream about today’s opening of Dream, my new media art installation for Arte Libera in Second Life. Dream comes after Trinity and is the second part of a trilogy of installations versed in the concept of the trinity. Dream talks about the necessity of to love and be loved, of to feel that inner hole, that absence, specially in night-time, as Joaquin Sabina sing in 19 días y 500 noches.

See you there! 😉

Opening: Monday 17 at 1.30 PM.

With folk and celtic music display by Storm Blauvelt.

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!

“Rise”, my little installation at Moya Gallery in Second Life

Rise in Moya_004

The wind slips through the broken window licking painfully the wounds of Silvia, who put on her makeup in the mirror while she eats her cry.

Silvia is painting in red the blue in her lips,
in peach the black in her eye,
in flesh his fingers marked in purple in her arm …
while she lies to her reflection,
again,
saying this is the last time,
that he has apologized to her, truly this time,
that she deserves his deformed words and blows,
that without him she would be nothing and that
he, deep in his heart,
loves her.

And so it goes a day,
a week,
a year …
until one day is the cold and dirty water who slips through her mouth and licks her wounds while makeup and embraces her skin in a silent hug that turns off her life.

Rise.

Rise is my CG art installation at Moya Land, the virtual gallery in Second Life of french multimedia artist Patrick Moya (aka Moya Janus). It’s a lite version of the one I did for non-profits project One Billion Rising in its initiative in Second Life, to help in the call to protest against gender violence. Rise talks about a woman that hopes that her beloved and abuser can change, maybe someday because “he, deep in his heart, loves her”… and that hope is what kill her at last.

Visit Rise in Second Life here:

Also, Wizardoz Chrome make a video with some of the captures she took during the Vernissage opening of Moya Land where you can see Rise and many other interesting artworks from Pol Jarvinen, Layachi Ihnen, Nino Vichan, Lemelon rouge Onyett, Comet Morigi, Luciella Lutrova, Glyph Graves, Cayenne Avon, Van Caerndow, ieko Catnap and Fiona Saiman.

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.

A summary of what you can see inside of Bruna Husky in the installation.

FRAGMENTO DE LA MEMORIA 01 – PAG. 11, LAGRIMAS EN LA LLUVIA (DE ROSA MONTERO)

Bruna despertó sobresaltada y recordó que iba a morir.
Pero no ahora.
Un latigazo de dolor le cruzó las sienes. El apartamento estaba en penumbra y al otro lado del ventanal caía la tarde. Miró aturdida el conocido paisaje urbano, las torres y las azoteas y los centenares de ventanas sobre los que las sombras se iban remansando, mientras sentía retumbar las punzadas en su cabeza.

Así empieza Lágrimas en la Lluvia, el libro que ha inspirado mi instalación artística TEARS IN RAIN, con esa terrible certeza sobre su fecha de caducidad…

Mañana jueves 07 estáis invitados a sumergiros con la autora del libro, la periodista y escritora española Rosa Montero, y conmigo en el Escenario 02: “Madrid 2109”, que es el que sigue la evolución interior de Bruna Husky, la replicante detective protagonista, a través de 16 fragmentos de sus memorias presentes.
