A concept sketch for Farm Co-op

Project Summary

I’d like to create a Co-operative Art Farm. A set of 4 activity areas: Photo Studio, Gamer’s Cove, Fashion Island & Interaction Zone, where avatar artists can create, share, and collaborate. The 6-month residency will be split into two 10-week sessions with 3 weeks of farm prep before each session.

Project Description

Farm Co-op will divide the 6.5 hectares of an LEA Region into 4 activity “islands” of about 1 hectare each, with 2.5 hectares of interstitial waters between them. The 4 activity islands will be “Photo Studio” (2D Art), “Gamer’s Cove” (World Design), “Fashion Island” (Avatar Design, Fashion & Dance), and “Interaction Zone” (Machinima, Public Art & Performance Art). Avatar artists from across the entire range of SL residents will be encouraged to come participate and create. The only 2 requirements for participation will be to spend at least 1 hour / week on The Farm, and to agree that all work created or shown at Farm Co-op will use a Creative Commons Non-Commercial license. The Farm will be an open space and we welcome having artists at neighboring sims.
