    Dystopian Daydreams Exhibit 

    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.

          I’m hanging out in Room 6C at the Truk Stop Hotel in Truk Lagoon, Federated States of Micronesia.

          Might relocate for MU CAA-VUP to shorten the commute… we’ll see how that goes.

          YES!!! Looking forward 2CU!!

    Everything is Part of Everything Else Parties 

    I’ve edited the video footage of the two end-of-session parties to 2:13 minutes. It was my intention to be unobtrusive while filming. Some of the art is blurry. But those of us who were there will likely remember the patience and supportive atmosphere as well as the interesting projects.

    Everything is Part of Everything Else: Two Parties 

    There are two parties at Low-Fi and Edie’s Farm the weekend of September 12, in honor of the work people have been doing, are doing, or just want to try to pull off on the spot. This is a semi-casual gathering for SL artists, performers, and friends to enjoy our dreams and process. Please bring a finished or in-process work to show or discuss. If you have an installation at Low-Fi or The Farm you can “show” that. This is a low pressure but hopefully interesting forum for all interested.

    • Saturday September 12, 7pm SLT
    • Sunday September 13, 9am SLT

    Location:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA28/211/85/22

    1st MUGA show: “Touch Me – While I Hold My Breath” by Gwynie Beaumont 

    The Medici University Gallery of Art is pleased to announce its first exhibition at the Art Farm (LEA28).

    “Touch Me – While I Hold My Breath” by Gwynie Beaumont, an installation of sculpture on the MUGA grounds and a retrospective of her photography in the gallery.

    Opening show 1 PM SLT, August 15, 2015.
    The show will run through August 22.

    Due to real life, I won’t be able to attend, but the artist will be available to answer questions. I hope you all can attend.

    The sculptures are really fun.

    For the next show, I’d like to get everyone at the sim to contribute to an installation in the gallery. Make it a collaborative effort, the kind Edie envisioned. 😀

    Generatives, glitch, and gifs MUGA opening 

    The Generatives, glitch, and gifs opening was held on Friday, June 5th. It was a nice event and there was a good turnout. The artists talked about their work and it was an opportunity for others on the campus and off to meet them.

    Thank you everyone who helped with this event, loaned their work to the aspiring gallery, and attended this event. A special thanks to the artists – Pearl Grey, FeelsEmpty, Elle Thorkveld, and Michael Green – and to Oona for building the gallery.

    The show will run through June 15. Please stop by if you haven’t had a chance to see the show. After that, I’ll try to do one last show, probably machinima.

    Here are some pics from the event:

Anyone with a taste in art can take this course (including building, writing, photography, and even dance!). It is aimed on how you will express your emotions, and maybe even offer different perspectives in how to show them.

    When: Tuesday at 8pm SLT starting on June 2nd.
    Theme: Deadly Sins

    BAOC awarded to Alexandre Lois 

    baoc

    This week I’m passing the Big Avatar on Campus award on to Alexandre. Alexandre is one of MU’s greatest contributors and most prolific artists. He is active on the blog, on campus, and he is a very diverse and talented artist.

    If I had to say one thing about his art – and there’s lots to say – I’d say his art always makes me think, it makes me reconsider the world through his eyes. I love that. And his music is cool.

    Congratulations, Alexandre.

    Road Trip to Hemingway’s Studio 

    Pfeiffer’s barn in Second Life is the virtual recreation of a barn converted in the 1930’s as a studio to give Ernest Hemingway privacy for writing. Portions of “A Farewell to Arms” were written there. There isn’t much walking and it might take about half an hour, depending on how much we talk.

    Two times are being offered. Thursday, 14th at 7:00 p.m. SLT and Friday, 15th at 11:00 a.m. SLT. If anyone needs a different time added, let me know. As long as it isn’t when I need to be sleeping, I’ll be willing to arrange it.

    It’s already on the calendar.

    Dead Artists’ Jane’s Walk Sunday 

    Thank you Feels Empty for reminding us all that today is Yves Klein’s birthday! What a great idea to have a “Dead Artists'” walk on Sunday!

    photo of the waters of Eleonora Slough with a studio door card that reads "Yves Klein"

    Yves Klein’s studio @ ES-1

    Medici University is such a vibrant place filled with so many living people, meetups, and collaborations. But we are also inspired by so many artistic spirits. From our Jane Jacobs inspired campus to the Barnett Newman Broken Obelisk sculpture not far from my own studio, to Yves Klein, to our very own Provost, and even me.

    Please join me in celebrating artistic spirits past and present this Sunday at 9am!

    Screen Tests! 

    Hello All!

    I participated in a bunch of “Screen Tests” a long time ago and it was so fun. The idea was pretty simple: try not to move for about 3 minutes. Kind of like photo portraits in a way, but alive. And with eye blinks and small movements and such. I’ve decided to do a new batch and I’d love to have YOU be a part of it!

    It’d be great if you’d like to BYO Stand Animation. And hopefully it’s one that barely moves. The less the better. But just a little is good. I’ve got lighting and such at my new studio at Maria-14 (the underwater one, next door to Neeva Torok and across from Collaborateopolis)

    Up top is a sample of a Screen Test with Strawberry Singh, and here’s my own:

      Hey Edie, what do we have to do to participate in this? I’m in, just IM me if you see me! 🙂 🙂

        Hi Skye, Myra & Oona! It’d be great to have you do Screen Tests! I have one “stand” that I used for My and Berry’s screen tests, as you can see it has very little motion. It’d be great to use a different stand, if you have one, or if anyone has suggestions for very minimal movement stands.

        It could also have a bit more movement and be framed looser. But again, the idea is mostly a “living portrait” rather than an “animated” piece.

        So, to do these, all we need is

        A Stand
        Pick a time

        Thank you for your interest!

    Concept: Activity No.11 – Vaneeesacam! – Sat 15 Nov ’14

    Jennicam

    From 1996 to 2003, first from her dorm room at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, then from Washington, D.C., and finally from Sacramento, California, Jennifer Ringley, aka “Jennicam” “lifecast” her every activity to the nascent World Wide Web. She might be more famous for the few minutes of nudity and sex, but perhaps it was really the banality of everyday life that so fascinated her legions of viewers.

    I’m not tempted to lifecast for 7-1/2 years, but the idea of Avatar Lifecasting seems interesting, at least interesting enough for a 24 hour live stream.
