LEA9 Sim Wide Art Installation Official Open
Energy = Transformation TELEPORT
The basic layer shows some possibilities of transformation, which the mankind has used
during the history to produce physical energy.
The utility poles refer to the electrical energy, which is won by transforming water, wind, sun
or terrestrial heat.
The base-texture shows the center of a nuclear fusion-reactor, which might be used to transform energy for a future generation.
The spaces on this layer are used to display the artwork of some colleagues focusing on the topic energy.
The teleport-pad can be used to reach the other layers.
Energy = Movement: TELEPORT
Second Life has a lot of options for movement, be it in dance-animations or by using scripts to let textures move.
Vehicles and even bot-avatars can be setup to move repeatedly on a certain trace or to roam free and according to the control of a person behind the screen.
The layer MOVEMENT shows some of those possibilities and how they can be used to produce especially animated art pieces.
Energy = Interaction: TELEPORT
The layer INTERACTION provides opportunities for the visitor to trigger visual events by collision or by touch. In the corners he can create his own fracticle-show (fracticle=fractals as particles) by touching the round buttons.
In long black tubes collisions trigger not only visual but also sonic events.
Energy = Love: TELEPORT
The LOVE-layer shows several artistic options how to express the term LOVE in a virtual world:
- mesh- and sculpty-statues by Asmita Duranjaya,
- roses and rose-petals with hover-text,
- a tree-sculpture with heart-leaves,
- animated lips,
- artwork concerning the topic love by bachi Cheng, Aloisio Congrejo, Frantz Catteneo, Kolor Fall and Ohe54, an anonymous Indian artist etc.
Energy = Transcendence: TELEPORT
The layer TRANSCENDENCE leads the visitor into another dimension beyond reality and virtuality. The mind can become unified with the eternity ...
Take a seat in one of the capsules and let you elevate to the transcendence-sphere;
sit on one of the yellow moving objects and take a bath in color, shape and sound ...
My sim-wide installation ENERGY is a piece of conceptual techno-organic art.
I try to visualize the term in five layers, from the simple physical aspect to the philosophical aspect of looking beyond the physical boundaries.
The conceptual strategy allows me to enhance my own installation with art-pieces of colleagues in Second Life. Some pieces are from my art collection and some are contributed by invited artist-friends in concern of the topic.
The contributing artists are:
Jaime Poutine - Merit Coba
Kolor Fall - Scottius Polke
Finny Yates - LouEct
lalie Sorbet - Aloisio Congrejo
bachi Cheng - Frantz Catteneo
Louly Loon - Sylver Piccard
Elle Thorkveld - Kyoko
Vonnie Fox - Wintergeist
OHE54 - Natsha Lemton
Nish Mip - Elle Thorkveld
Thanks to Mason Woller for some bulding help.
Thanks to the LEA committee, especially Dove Rhode, PatriciaAnne Daviau, LaPiscean Liberty and Secret Rage.
Thanks to all the hidden contributors, whose tools I used to create the sim-wide art-installation without reinventing the wheel....
