IMMERSIVE WOR(L)DS – VIDEO PART 2: lecture and artists


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 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.

Rosa Montero’s reading about Noke


And… this is the version in English of the interview that Simba Schumann has done to Rosa Montero about her book Lacrime nella Pioggia (Lágrimas en la Lluvia, Tears in the Rain) and my installation! ;D

Arte Libera

What a surprise to meet during the opening of “Immersive wor(l)ds” Bruna Husky , main character of “Tears in the rain”, the novel that has inspired Noke Yuitza’s work. Was really her, the combact replicant, with a tatoo that divides her face and then go on in all her body, dividing her (or maybe linking her, as in the book we can read). behind that avatar there was really Rosa Montero, the author of the book, who entered in sl because of that opening. Rosa partecipated to Noke’s work, sending her some mp3s with her personal readings of book’s fragments.

It was my pleasure knowing her and talking with her about her book and Noke’s installation: She is a very friendly person and I profits by her disponibility for making her an interview rich of curiosity and irony.

Did you know something about Secondlife’s art before this experience…

Noke’s reading about Rosa Montero


Here it is! The English version of the interview! 😉

Arte Libera

“Tears in the rain” is the title of Rosa Montero’s novel, choosen by Noke Yuitza for her installation for “Immersive wor(l)ds“. I know Noke from many years and she ever fascinated me for her creative impetus. I like to observe her while she works to an installation, with accuracy and care to every details untill the last time. Arte Libera hosted her with pleasure for other two installations and it’s ever an emotion to work with her. This time she has involved me so deep in her work, because she asked me to be her model for three characters of the book, three women in a future world, very different from my common avatar. It was very funny and I was so curious that I’ve red Rosa Montero’s book before the opening for being sure to understand everything I saw.

Two words about Noke: she studies Fine Arts…

Rosa Montero legge Noke..

Simba Schumann interviews Rosa Montero about my installation inspired in her book Lacrime nella Pioggia (Lágrimas en la Luvia, Tears in the Rain). This is the Italian version.

Arte Libera

Che sorpresa sabato mattina, in occasione dell’inaugurazione di “Immersive wor(l)ds“, ritrovarsi facca a faccia (virtuali ovviamente) con Bruna Husky, la protagonista di “Lacrime nella pioggia“, il romanzo di Rosa Montero (Salani Editore) che ha ispirato l’istallazione di Noke Yuitza. Era proprio lei, la replicante  da combattimento, caratterizzata da un tatuaggio che le riga il viso per poi scorrere su tutto il suo corpo, dividendola in due (o forse tenendola unita, come si legge nel libro). Ebbene dietro quell’avatar si celava niente meno che la stessa Rosa Montero, autrice di “Lacrime nella pioggia”, che era entrata in sl proprio per curiosare in quella istallazione, alla quale ha peraltro partecipato direttamente, fornendo all’artista degli mp3 con  frammenti di libro letti in spagnolo direttamente da lei.

E’ stato davvero un piacere conoscerla e poter scambiare qualche opinione su questo libro che ho appena finito di leggere e sull’istallazione…

Future Communities


Future Communities by Noke Yuitza at SL9B

Future Communities by Noke Yuitza at SL9B


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?

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.


The original concept of Future Communities is based on Lacrime nella piogia, the exhibit I’m preparing for Fine Arts Brera Academy project in SL about Tears in the Rain (the last book of the Spanish writer and journalist Rosa Montero), and inspired in the anime Ghost in the Shell. From Lágrimas en la Lluvia, Future Communities takes the idea of the technohumans, that is in certain way similar to Blade Runner replicants, and from Ghost in the Shell, the idea of the virtual “ghost”.
