    Sharing the Opportunity 

    To share the opportunity of participating in LEA 28, round 9, and to invite and inform visitors, I posted this to my main blog about summer session:

    Art Farming with MetaHarper Tools 

    This is my last video about Ant Farm’s summer session. At the Low-Fi seminar given by Glori Maertens of Guerilla Burlesque, a box of info and tools were made available to us including MetaHarper Tools. Elle and Marie have been learning to use it and these clips are from performances they shared at Everything is Part of Everything Else.

    Fall Session 1 @Art Farm!

    Today begins Week 3 of Summer Session! Thanks to everyone who’s participated in the 1st 2 weeks, and to our awesome facilitators, Myra, Jade, Oona, Neeva & Newton!

    Even though 67% of Summer Session is still to come, I’d like to invite you to think about Fall Session 1, which runs for 6 weeks from September 26 – November 8.

    We’ll again have Four Lands where people can participate in various ways. You are invited to propose a land for Fall1! The only real requirement is that it be an inclusive idea where everyone is welcome to participate.

    The best place to throw out your ideas is right here on MU/Talk. That way everyone can see what you’re thinking of, offer feedback, other idea inspirations, etc! You can also IM, Notecard, or email me if you prefer.

    Sometime in September I’ll announce the 4 Lands for Fall1

      I hope the residences can remain in the next quarter. I think ppl will be annoyed to have to start all that over again. 🙂

        Unfortunately Oona, that’s not the vision at Art Farm at all. We run for 6 weeks and CLOSE. Everything goes. The next session after break is a completely new session with new lands, new activities, and new ideas.

        I’m super grateful to you and everyone who’s participated in Summer Session so far, and with a month still to come I hope others will dive in, but to be clear, this is not an entitlement space. Six weeks and session over!

          I have been pondering this. What if the “inclusive idea” is a phase 2 for an existing land. For example. the people participating have come up with a major project. I’m sure the environs could be changed though. There is a sense of “infrastructure creation” in this first phase.

          • Newton 03:43 on 16/08/2015 Permalink | Reply

            I was pondering the very same question.

            • Newton 16:23 on 16/08/2015 Permalink

              So for example, at Low-Fi, the infrastructure is up and we are now more deeply into our machinima track which will last two weeks. The forming of the performance track is in progress with the stages built and dates remaining to be committed-to. If we needed more time for the performance track to reach “fruition,” would that be something we’d “propose” and would you feel it should be considered something completely different than Low-Fi? I already suggested the performers approach you with a distinct idea for a session if that were to happen, so from my standpoint the idea of wiping things clean while “using” what has been done so far is not a problem.

              On the other hand looking at Oona’s perspective, the “inclusive” aspect does warrant a lingering community within the “school” or on the farm and wiping that clean and regenerating it is more challenging. In fact, it’s more work.

              Interesting projects reap interesting conundrums!

        Hi, Edie. Things are developing so well with what we have, now, I think you should just leave it as is. If you jumble stuff up, now, or scrap it entirely, you’re just likely to lose people.

        Let the sim develop for the entire time. That’s my vote, too.

          I share Myra’s & Oona’s concerns about losing people in a big change at 6 weeks. It takes a while to build things up and get them going, as we can see with the current lands.

          I share Myra and Elle’s concerns. 😛

      I would propose “new work land”. The participants agree to make something new every week and put it on display it in their display space. The one week cycle is to creat a balance between having stuff displayed long enough to be seen and appreciated, and short enough to encourage a constant flow of work from each artist. Once a week we could host a walk-through to talk about the work and admire it….then onto the next week’s work.

      I imagine studio spaces, like at MU, but with an added emphasis on active producing and displaying work the whole session.

      Depending on the number of people participating, maybe have a central area for collaborative work, discussion, and socializing.

      new work land needs a better title, but I would love to participate in something like this.

        I like this “new work land” idea. A current land could be adapted to incorporate this or something entirely new created. Is this one new work per week or an entire new display spaces work per week? I am thinking one new work, since some mediums and projects take much longer. I like the idea of both individual spaces and collaborative ones.

    • Neeva 08:08 on 17/08/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Babel sandbox could easily morph into “new work land”. I think each participant could define what new work is for them. But it would be nice to have something to display so there is a sense of collective activity and change from week to week. That would keep up interest and allow us to inspire each other to pursue and share our creative work. I don’t think participating would need to be a huge commitment. It is new work land, not new masterpiece land. Do a new doodle each week, take a picture, make a prim sculpture, or have a project that is ongoing and show the work in progress. Easy.

        Sounds good!

      • Oona 03:49 on 20/08/2015 Permalink | Reply

        I like this new work land idea. For me, and a few others I think, the sim is split up and not in a good way. We aren’t even connected it seems. 🙁 I know Edie doesn’t want to recreate Medici again, but borrowing what worked there and what didn’t isn’t a crime. You have the interested ppl all here and waiting to participate and actually participating now i think, it’d be a shame to lose those that just don’t want to jump through the hoops of change. I love the new work land idea. Something to unify all the sections would be nice, if i’m not misunderstanding.

      What a beautiful look at the people and projects going on at Art Farm! Thank you Pearl!

      BTW, if you just paste the video URL (Vimeo or YouTube) on a blank line, then it’ll embed right here on MU/Talk. (sometimes with Vimeo you have to take the “s” out of “https://”

      Thank you all for your kind comments.

      I’m here because of community and collaboration. Without that, I might as well just work on my projects elsewhere.

    Art Farm – Update 1.5

    For anyone interested in planning on summer session, I’ve been talking to peeps on Slack:
    https://vbco.slack.com

    I think you’re probably all signed up there already, but if anyone needs access, just LMK and I’ll invite you.

    I’ve mostly been answering questions in Slack Direct Message… but I’ll set up Channels for our 4 Art Farm Summer “Lands”: Low Fidelity, Babel infocalypse, MUGA & Ward 81.

    Non-Update Update

    Hi guys! I’ve heard some of you have been wondering about my LEA Round 9 “Art Farm Co-op” proposal. The LEA has not announced the recipients yet. They should be doing so very soon.

    Here’s what I proposed:
