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.
Dream music loop sound, concept and CG design by Noke Yuitza.
“Burned Tree”, part of my stage set for Art in Hats closing party. Model and texture by myself. Apps used: ZBrush, Sculptris, Blender, Photoshop, Second Life. Rendered in Blender Internal and Sculptris.
Nine woods in the cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Birch into the fire goes, to represent what the Lady knows.
Oak gives the forest might, in the fire brings the God’s insight.
Rowan is the tree of power, causing life and magic to flower.
Willows at the waterside stand, to aid the journey to the Summerland.
Hawthorn is burned to purify, and draw faery to your eye.
Hazel, the tree of wisdom and learning, adds its strength to the bright fire burning.
White are the flowers of the apple tree, that brings us the fruits of fertility.
Grapes that grow upon the vine, giving us both joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen, to represent immortality unseen.
Elder is the Lady’s tree, burn it not, or cursed you’ll be.
The Poem of the Nine Woods, anonymous author, celtic poem.
This burned tree was part of my set for the electronic music performance by Morlita Quan with motive of the closing party of Art in Hats challenge, where over a hundred people came to celebrate. Curated by Quan Lavender in Second Life, this project was a call to mix fashion and art by diverse CG artists and fashion designers. You can see a part of this performance in the following video by Wizardoz Chrome.
