“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.

“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.

En la exposición Comic Girl,  Noke nos muestra su última producción artística. La sala del museo se llena de fragmentos;  de trozos de vida. Con diferentes fotografías de una mujer, su autorretrato, nos conduce a mirar más allá del puzzle visual que conforman estas piezas. Prefiere huir de la evidencia y casi nunca nos muestra completo el rostro, que queda en fuga hasta el siguiente instante. Podría decirse que, como en las primeras cámaras fotográficas automáticas, el modelo se vuelve huidizo, se quiebra y estalla en diferentes momentos. Esta aparente fragilidad nos revela un dato. El reflejo de un sentimiento que se aloja entre el deseo y el temor. Porque Noke nos invita a observar a una mujer en las diferentes fases del amor.  Produce inquietud la elección de los tonos básicos, contrastando los blancos y negros. Se añade que el fragmento mantiene la intriga y genera la duda. No acabamos de conocerla al completo. Noke nos permite la visión, sí, pero desde una distancia. Si en ocasiones nos parece estar contemplando la secuencia de un comic negro, en otras tenemos la percepción de un “voyeur” de novela negra; como atisbando por el ojo de la cerradura.  En definitiva Noke nos entrega la intimidad de la emoción de una mujer que muestra el “yo fraccionado y dividido en diferentes facetas que van cobrando importancia en diferentes momentos: Imágenes de enamoramiento, deseo, pasión, amor, dolor, ruptura…”,  como ella misma ha definido estas obras.

Comic Girl, la que fué mi primera exposición en mundos virtuales, trata del ciclo del amor y la ruptura y de las siete fases que los atraviesan: la ilusión del principio al conocer a alguien especial, el enamoramiento pasional, el amor ya más sereno y aposentado, la duda, el dolor, la ruptura del corazón y del alma en mil pedazos cuando se acaba y el crecimiento personal tras la ruptura. Las fases muchas veces se alternan como en una montaña rusa, no siempre son lineales, por eso las imágenes fueron expuestas a modo de collage inmersivo que inundó buena parte del museo virtual MKAC, donde estuvo expuesta de Febrero a Abril de 2009.

Registré, a modo de experimento documental fotográfico, las siete fases de este ciclo con la ayuda de mi webcam mientras mantenía conversaciones con la que era por entonces mi compañero sentimental. Por ello estaba enfocada desde el punto de vista femenino, lo que no impidió que los hombres que la visitaron se sintieran también identificados y reflejados. Y es que el amor no entiende de géneros.

Lacrime nella Pioggia, replicant eye

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.
