“Love is a Battlefield” in The Museo del Metaverso in Craft Virtual World

Drones capturing rusted hearts in LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

Drones capturing rusted hearts in LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

If you have a rusted heart, be careful with the drone collectors ;)…

Some days ago the MdM (Museo del Metaverso) reopened in Craft with some cool artists coming from Second Life and Hypergrid. You can visit its website to see some photos and get the Land Marks-taxi and I recommend to you to click in”Artists” in the main menu cause the list its the huge enough to don’t display the entire submenu of artists in all screens.

Mine is the following one: Love is a Battlefield. In my line of dreaming the future with some surreal cyberpunk style, I’ve created some drones collecting rusted hearts. It’s inside my DREAM saga, as you will recognize by one of its characters. There are 3: the rusted hearts, the drone collectors and the great collector. You can turn yourself in one of the characters, the rusted heart, and be part of the installation by getting the avatar as gift at the shop of the MdM.

Some extra data: my avatar during the MdM opening was the drone collector carrying a heart. The drone is my ALEGRIA Dream Mask that you saw in La Metallique Fair, The Sea of Cubic Dreams during the performances and these days in ArtFest’15 in Second Life.

Enjoy 😉

Sunday Fullon Dark Psy Tears with DJane Oona at “The Beauty” Stage

POSTER Dj Oona in Tears in Rain

 

She may looks like a little fairy… but today at 04:00 PM SLT DJane Oona will soundtrack my Tears in Rain cyberart installation with Fullon Dark Psy electronic music style in “The Beauty” Stage (in “Madrid 2109” scenario 02, TEARS IN RAIN-LEA10; Second Life).

 

“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.

The Robotic Wars

Featured

The Robotic Wars at BURN2.
@noke 2012.

Central Archives of the United States of the Earth
(Mod. version)

File: #6B-138
ROBOTIC WARS
Keyworkds: Human Peace, Geneva Convention, coltan mines, Congo Crisis, Conspiracy Replicant, Lumbre Ras

Inspired in sci-fi disaster films of wars between humans and machines, this virtual artistic intervention for the BURN2 represents to be a recorded audiovisual piece related to the Robotic Wars of the “Central Archives of the United States of the Earth” mentioned in the book Tears in Rain, by Rosa Montero (international Spanish writer and journalist). In fact, as observes, we are playing the role of a copy-editors editing and preserving a part of the past inside a virtual reality displayer in Madrid 2109.

In the book, there’s a conspiration to break the peace between replicants and humans. Yiannis Liberopoulos, copy-editor of the “Central Archives of the United States of the Earth” and one of the main characters of the book, discovers that someone is hacking these files to change history to discredit replicants. So, we can’t know if what we are watching in this installation is a real recorded past scene of the Robotic Wars or if it’s a manipulated version.

ANIMAL ROBOTS and THE PRIM-PEOPLE

Robots are inspired in invertebrates as robotic space investigation ones as well as in Star Wars ones.

I’ve chose to use what I call “the prim-people” across TEARS IN RAIN project to represent the basic shape of humans, aliens and replicants (that have cat eyes as in Montero’s book) in the most simple unit of construction in virtual worlds. It’s other way to express evolution from simplicity to complexity inside the hole context of this cross-lands intervention.

Where and how to visit The Robotic Wars?

In the Rabit Hole island of Burning Man in Second Life until 4th of November. Landing point to The Robotic Wars:

*This exhibit grows each day, as a living organism, again playing over the concept of from simple to complex evolution, so visitors can follow changes each day.

**Recommended:

  1. Compatible viewer with mesh objects as Second Life last viewer and Firestorm
  2. Sky Settings: night and sunset
  3. To activate “Lights and Shadows” in Preferences/ Graphics/ Advanced

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.
