It was the first show of the new season – and one we had been looking forward to for some time!
DW429 Second Life Endowment for the Arts – Opening from Richard Elen on Vimeo.
We visited the brand-new, just-opened regions of the Second Life Endowment for the Arts – the SLEA. It’s the new initiative by Linden Lab and Second Life residents to give artists a place to create, display, share, learn, and teach.
We have a good look round at some of the current installations, and talk to some of the movers and shakers behind the project, including SLEA Coordinator Tansee, SL Liaison Safar Fiertze, and artist Regi Yifu. We visit Viktor Savior’s fascinating presentations of Slavic history and folklore, and we talk Machinima with SLEA Media Curator Wizardoz Chrome; and we go under the sea to learn about Nellie the turtle and our relation to the oceans with Briony Writer and Jaz. There’s a stunning slideshow from Wildstar Beaumont, and much more.
