Welcome to Café Sophistry’s first public exhibit, “Dystopian Daydreams.”
The mind always tells itself stories, even in the darkest situations. VR audiences flock to dystopian worlds. Is occupying apocalyptic aftermaths an act of coping, or cleansing and innocence? Do creators enjoy “exploiting decay” for its dynamic beauty?
Please join the Café Sophistry creators as we play with the Dystopian Daydream. Through April 2, 2017.
You may read more about Café Sophistry and the trajectory that lead to this exhibit here:
Greetings, on Sunday March 12th at 9am SLT we are slated to have the second Café Sophistry “Dystopian Dreams” workshop, wherein people discuss ideas and – if ready – show some work they’ve created. Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Lex Perdide inworld with:
- Whether you’ll attend the workshop on Sunday march 19 at 9am
- Whether you’ll be sharing work
- What you think you’ll be sharing
- Whether you want to share it as part of a “field trip” or whether you want to rez it onsite (ie “bring it with you)
Thanks again, and looking forward to next Sunday!

I just loved perusing the winners of the 2017 Fairy Tale Competition, appreciating the worlds created, the stories, the great presentations… And I loved imagining walking through them. Which are your favorites?
2017 Fairy Tale Competition Winners: http://blankspaceproject.com/#
In front of a live audience at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C., Blank Space, AIAS, and the National Building Museum announced the winners of the fourth annual Fairy Tales competition. With submissions from over 60 countries, the award-winning entries explore current events and the creative process through wonderfully crafted short stories and artwork.
The abridged transcript for our first Café Sophistry Dystopian Daydreams session is now available. Thanks to all participants – it was a great conversation and journey through Outbreak and Once Upon a Fairy Tale.
Please note, our next meeting is Sunday, March 12 at 9am SLT. Please bring a new creation along the lines of our discussion topic, which was essentially “regeneration from destruction.” We were philosophical and all mediums are good, but we also discussed creating a simple “dystopian” piece such as a texture, furniture, or other item simply as a stylistic challenge (if you’ve not tried that). Thanks again.
Newton, Mr. is hosting a Café Sophistry workshop on Sunday February 12 at 9 am SLT to examine “the Dystopian Daydream.” Virtual field trips are planned, learn more about it here:
