Alien Isles

Designing Worlds looks back to … the amazing Alien Isles

This week, Monday 6th July at 2pm SLT, we are taking a look back at Alien Isles, a marvellous place with wonderful quirky art created by Lorin Tone, Judi Newall and their friends – such as Madcow Cosmos, Glyph Graves, Alazarin Mobius & Photon Pink. It was a place where some of Second Life’s most notable artists came to have fun.

Unavailable on the web for a number of years, it recently found a home on our new Archive channel (which is full of goodies!).

You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Archive Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/375390270. And you can join the special Watch Party (at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

Many people were sad when the beautiful – and fun! – Alien Isles announced its closure back in 2011. We decided then that we would make our planned return to the region to visit again Lorin Tone and Judi Newall (who had featured in an earlier show about sound creation – sadly, no longer available).

The end of live filming by Treet.TV provided a few hic-cups, but we found a brilliant cinematographer who joined our team – Laslopantomik Yao – and with Elrik acting as our sound engineer as well as co-presenter, we got our footage in the can before the Isles closed!

It’s a fun show (with a tiny invasion!) so do join us in the studio at 2pm SLT!
