TIR NA NOG, The Ethereal Dyu Premiere in MadPea Art Festival

Once upon a time, in the World After Seas, Niska, Goddess of Water, fell in love into an impossible romance with ethereal Dyu, God of Elements. What will you do if you where them? Will you challenge the Moon?

It’s our pleasure to invite you today to TIR NA NOG, The Ethereal Dyu, our special collage for the MadPea Art Festival in Second Life, a première of what you will see in LEA10. What you see here is a part of a scene of TIR NA NOG: As the God of Elements, Dyu balance the Gods of Fire, Air, Earth and Water keeping them in harmony. One day, Niska discovers his secret temple by serendipity through a coralline hood and she felt for fist time what’s love.

Time: Saturday at 2pm PMT, starting with Jordan Reyne live in concert
Location: TIR NA NOG, The Ethereal Dyu in MadPea Art Festival

Enjoy!

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.
