        Lovely video, Pearl!

      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.

    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:

      Great article Myra πŸ™‚ The show was a great success I think. I’ll be sad when June ends, I love MUGA a lot.

      Great write up & love the pics, Myra. It was a fun opening, thanks to my fellow artists and all who attended for making it that way! And thank you to Myra for curating & facilitating this exhibit and to Oona for all her gallery building. Excellent work.

      I recall participating on one of Feels Empty’s Step Art creations. Fun! Great exhibit.

      thanks so much, everyone. It’s official, now. I want your movies. We’ll figure out how to upload and host them.

    In Praise of Prims


    • Neeva 19:01 on 28/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Nice post, Izzy! You write delicious prose.

      • Izzy 19:12 on 28/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

        aww, thankies Neeva! You stack delicious prims.

    • Myra 21:53 on 28/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

      It’s not a mesh vs prims issue. Secondlife needs to update its building tools so you can create mesh in-world.

    BAOC Award to Elle Thorkveld 


    I choose Elle Thorkveld as the next BAOC Award recipient. Elle has done tai chi at the dojo with me, has an amazing entry in the Cyberart contest at LEA 12, has been involved in GIMP classes, has written for my storyboard projects and now is assisting with the proposal to continue the spirit of Medici University in some form. She gives encouraging words to others and has participated in many projects, events and parties at MU.
    Even with her talent and skills, she’s made time to give positive feedback for my efforts and this is what has made her stand out from many talented and productive learners. Not only has she been supportive in public forums such as this but she’s also been quietly welcoming and interested in how I’m doing on campus.
    I’m rather in awe of her focus, consistency, ability to appear centered while stretching in different directions even more than she’d planned and juggling many things with apparent grace. For these reasons, and more on other levels, I’ve drawn a compass for her and added it to the award.
    Congratulations Elle!

    BAOC Award

    The best part of receiving the Big Avatar On Campus Award is being able to choose the next winner, and I choose Pearl Grey. I had been reading her blog, Million Happy Endings, for a long time, so I was happy to find her at MU. She now has a second blog to describe her adventures here. I have especially enjoyed her storyboard contests. If she is not in her studio, you might meet her at the Tai Chi place at MU. In honor of her writing skills, I added a pencil to the trophy. Congratulations, Pearl!

    Oona Fawkes & the Grey Dossier

    Are you as excited as me? New Blog Post!

    • Oona 22:18 on 30/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      “But try to exchange something. And never worry about β€œlosing” something. The most meaningful things in life cannot be lost by sharing. They can only become even more precious.”

      <3 What a beautiful series of words strung together. I will add, I think I’m settled and not ready to move again for about a month. πŸ˜›

      • Pearl Grey 21:29 on 31/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

        I’ve been considering different ways that I can exchange at MU, including the learners I’ve never met or that I see around and never talk to. Feel free to contact me with any ideas.

        Anyway, I’ve been mulling over some ideas to do a blog post regarding Bad Ryan’s Agent of Chaos post called “Why Bother?” I just reread it and noticed that comments have been activated six hours ago.

        /me points at it.

        • Oona 18:00 on 01/04/2015 Permalink | Reply

          Hey Pearl πŸ™‚ I’d love hear that blog post about Bad Ryan. πŸ™‚

          As for exchanging with other learners, I enjoy trying to find new ppl to meet that I haven’t before. Its not always easy it seems and sometimes my fear of rejection works its way up into my head, but overall – I’ve had few problems and many surprises. And…. I think I’ve made some of the best connections I’ve ever made anywhere else in Second Life. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, MU is one of my fav places ever for what its about, what it gives and who is here. Its a hidden gem. πŸ™‚

          • Pearl Grey 02:15 on 03/04/2015 Permalink | Reply

            I agree Oona; it’s a hidden gem. And I’ve made a few great connections that will last longer than MU.

            I’ve kept my invitations to collaborate simple to make them more do-able and I’ve had to say no to some because they’re beyond what I can do.

            The rejection part is a little scary, I know. Who wants to feel like an interloper?

            I’ve found that being on the sim at different times of the night and day when possible can result in pleasant surprises.

    So, uh, I really hope I don’t have to sing Britney for karaoke night, again!

    But, uh… I’ve written a blog post:

    Good Ryan:
    β€’ agent of change / feminine energy

    Actually, um… I wrote two…

    Bad Ryan:
    β€’ agent of chaos / why bother?

    • Oona 04:41 on 30/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Good and Bad…. hmmm split personality or what! We shall see which side wins out.

    • Pearl Grey 06:08 on 30/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      I read them both and have made a secret bet with myself which one will win.
