Rezzable & Language Lab have come together to celebrate cultural diversity in SL by holding a Global Music Festival for the month of September. Throughout the festival, September 6-28th, Rezzable is sponsoring the ‘Captured Proverbs’ Second Life Photography Contest. This is not your typical photo contest; it is a celebration of the RL diversity that helps make SL special. This is your chance to showcase your Real Life Culture by taking the best photo in SL that represents something typical to your home country & culture: it’s proverbs. Prizes are abundant, with 30,000L$ and lots of in world goodies for the first prize winner. For more info - I’m not going to write this all down twice! ;) - visit the ‘Captured Proverbs’ SL Photography Contest for GMF webpage on the Rezzable website. For those wondering, ‘GMF’ is - of course - short for ‘Global Music Festival’. Enjoy the creative process and snapshotting!

Virgins are Broadly Offensive

I don’t know where to start to formulate my surprise, disgust and utter ‘WTF!?’ feelings about this. We all know the broadly offensive rules are hugely broadly offensive themselves: no nipples on PG areas - be it male or female, no excessive sex or violence - not even on mature areas - and what was the latest Linden addition to the definition of broadly offensive: ‘no child avatar in a photograph together with an adult avatar.’ Yep, not even when they are dressed with three pair of pants, five winter coats and a hat. But ok, I’m sure you want to know what’s added to the broadly offensive list this time: depiction of astrological signs. Well, at least some astrological signs. Lion, cancer, sagitarius, … all seem to be fine, but when we come up to the Virgo, it gets tricky.

Loki Popinjay - not that kind of pervert! - showed his ‘Avatar Zodiac’ first at SL5B, where - despite strict rules - nobody seem to have had a problem with it. As it was amazing, the exhibition was prolonged at Rezzable Cannery. Now, after 1 totally crazy puritan sick f*ck reported - abuse reported - Loki Popinjay, Loki got threats from Linden Lab and decided to just burn the photograph himself. An excerpt from the e-mail Loki received from Linden Lab:

Violation: Community Standards: Broadly Offensive Content or Conduct

Real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depiction of sexual violence including rape, real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depictions of extreme or graphic violence, and other broadly offensive content are never allowed or tolerated within Second Life.

Nude photo of young girl holding a teddy bear needs to be removed immediately. Alternatively, you may cover up the nudity with photo alterations.

What this does not make sense at all:

  1. This photograph was up at SL5B, which had a very high ‘puritain’ rating this year. Nobody complained.
  2. All of the sudden, some idiot flags it, and immediately it is labelled as ‘violation’ and Loki gets threatened with ‘account suspension’, without asking him for explanation. They are milder on ‘content thiefs’!
  3. I wonder what exactly makes this avie a ‘young girl’. Hips & shape definitely looks adult to me. Maybe the cute curls or the teddy bear?
  4. I wonder where exactly Lindens finds the ‘nude’. Both nipples & genitals are covered, using hair, arms and the teddy bear.
  5. What do LL expect for the depiction of a ‘virgin’? I would assume that in the SLT zone, 30 year old virgins are as rare as in Europe?

Loki Popinjay contested this decision by Linden Lab, but got to hear from Harry Linden that this is indeed a violation of ToS and the work needs to be removed or redone. *sighs*

Sometimes we need to be reminded of why exactly we continue to put time & effort & money & CPU cycles into Second Life. So must have thought Dizzy Banjoy and Lillie Yifu when they called out for ‘messages to second life‘ for their SL5B Art Exhibition. And what a beautiful ‘this will surely remind us about the good things’ result! I must admit I have not seen ‘Message in a Bottle’ exhibit inworld, but Dizzy Banjo’s most recent machinima depecting the build & voice samples is surely amazing. Sit back, relax, watch, listen and be reminded of all the good virtual things in life, or is that all the good things in virtual life?

Although I don’t believe the male voice that speaks the words ‘never crashed’, I believe this positive reminder is a lovely machinima and a great achievement by Miss Yifu and Mr Dizzy. No?

RMB City - China Tracy - London July 2008 6Yeeey! Cao Fei, a Chinese artist famous for her RMB City design in Second Life, is displaying her work in the Serpentine Gallery in London.

So, we (some Rezzable folks) definitely need to go see! ;) We’ll be at the opening at 6PM UK time tonight. If you happen to be there too, don’t hesitate to come and say ‘Hi!’.

Update: met Malburns & took some photographs of the RMB City Exhibition, to be found on Flickr.

RMB City - China Tracy - London July 2008 4Reflecting on China’s recent urban and cultural explosion, the architecture of RMB City is an amalgam of Chinese icons, ancient and modern, from the panda to the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Summer Olympics. The installation in the Gallery’s lobby presents two- and three-dimensional visualisations of RMB City as well as computer access to a virtual viewing platform over the construction site, which features video updates of the construction process.

Cao Fei: RMB City opens to public Saturday 26 July and takes place at the Serpentine Gallery which is located at the Kensington Gardens, London and is opened daily from 10am until 6pm.

Second Life wordt 5 jaar!!

Voor de SL5B feesten - Second Life 5th Birthday - werken Dizzy Banjo en Lillie Yife aan een ‘Bericht voor Second Life’. ‘Bericht aan Second Life’ is een gigantische fles, die ze willen vullen met jullie berichten voor Second Life. Wat zou jij willen zeggen aan de volledige SL community nu we 5 jaar worden?

Wat betekent Second Life voor jou?
Hoe heeft Second Life je leven beinvloed?
En hoe hoop je dat Second Life’s toekomst eruit gaat zien?

Er zijn twee manieren waarop je je bericht kan achterlaten:

- Een geluidsbericht, waarop jij je boodschap inspreekt. (Voorkeur!)
- Een tekstberichtje in een notecard.

Zodra de berichten ontvangen worden, gaan ze allemaal de fles in. Ze zullen te horen & te lezen zijn als deel van een leuke en interactive geluids- en muziekinstallatie om de ’spirtit’ van Second Life te vieren. Op het einde van de twee weken dat SL5B duurt, zal de fles verzegeld worden en in de virtuele oceaan geworpen worden. Wie weet, misschien komt ze op SL10B terug boven water?

HOE JE BERICHT INSTUREN:

Geluidsopnames:

Er is een simpele tutorial - in het Engels weliswaar - over hoe je bericht, maximum 10 seconden, kan opnemen, uploaden en aan Lilly overhandigen:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xLt-vyKQoc

Tekstberichten :

1. Maximum 140 lettertekens op een notecard.
2. Zorg ervoor dat de notecard ‘full perm’ is! Rechtermuisknop klikken op de notecard in je inventory, en zorgen dat de boxjes ‘copy’, ‘modify’ en ‘transfer’ zijn aangeduid.
3. Ga naar ‘Search’ en typ Dizzy Banjo and open zijn profiel.
4. Sleep de notecard naar Dizzy’s profiel.

Belangrijk: De berichten moeten ‘PG’ zijn (niets sexueels of extreem grof) en mogen de Second Life Terms of Service niet schenden.

DEADLINE:

Alle geluidsopnames en tekstberichten moeten ontvangen worden voor:
WOENSDAG 18 JUNI 2008!

Alvast bedankt voor de interesse! Hopelijk kunnen we snel je inzending in de gigantische fles stoppen! ;)

Koinup WindLight Exhibition: Jax Streeter LiveA few weeks back the three first price winners of the Koinup WindLight Contest were announced. Today they were celebrated in world with a live performance of Jax Streeter and an exhibition of their photographs and 7 ‘honourable mentionings’ at the Rezzable ‘Cannery’.

Seeing there works on display in the virtual world was sure as hell impressive, and so was the music and the guests… Miss Ravenelle and Mister Torley ‘Linden’ Olmstead. Woot! I must admit, this was the first time for me to see Torley IRL.. euhm.. IVL and I was kinda stuttering. First thing Torley said to me? ‘Is that a watermelon drink you’re holding?’ :p

Koinup WindLight Exhibition: RavenelleJax Streeter gave the best of his virtual self and played one hell of a set - with ‘Avatar Superstar’ as my favourite song. As promised, I bumped the song 9 times on TheSixtyOne.com and gave Mr. Streeter my underwear layer. He has at least one new fan after this gig! /me hums: ‘No matter where you’re from. No matter who you are. In this world… you are… superstar… avatar. Play like you are. Act like you are. Rezz like a superstar, avatar!

More photographs of the exhibition opening in the Koinup Windlight Exhibition Opening Flickr set. For those curious: All photographs except the one of Torley Olmstead were shot with the ‘Pirate’ WindLight Preset.

The winning entries and 7 nominees for the Koinup Windlight Contest will still be on display in-world for a few week, so if you missed the opening, you can still go and see them. Correction, you should still go and see them! Directions: Open your map and search for ‘Cannery’ (or click this SLURL), upon arrival at the Cannery sim, you’ll see a big sign saying ‘Koinup & Rezzable’. Click the TP disk located under it, and we’ll get you right to where you need to be… but you won’t hear a live concert of Mr. Streeter.

PS. A certain Miss Mira owns me bandages for my poor little sour paws. Never ever give me a lighter before telling me to detach it when I plan on typing! ;)

Not participating.

Vint Falken at SL4B: aerial photographyHow many of you went to visit SL4B, and did you go to see my little exhibition / build there? Did you enjoy your stay, or was it laggy as hell? And did you get to see some new artists, Second Life ’scenes’ or virtual worlds stuff you never heard of before?* And how many of you will be participating in the new and upcoming Second Life 5th Birthday Event? The theme for this years SL5B is pretty much set to be the “culture” theme. An overview of the different ‘cultures’ can be found here although they are still debating and tweaking them.

Art at SL5B

Who’s in charge of the ‘art’ department - and especially virtual photography - you will no doubt wonder. Because she did such a great job last year, she’s back this year: Miss Shoshana Epsilon. She warns us to be timely with our applications for some space at the art part of the Second Life 5th Birtday Event:

Just a quick note to introduce myself and my team. I’m Shoshana Epsilon in SecondLife, photographer, gallery owner, curator, mentor. My helpers are CodeBastard Redgrave and Stephen Venkman, both excellent SL photographers. Together, we will be deciding who gets to show art in the show, as well as how much land they will get. Don’t try to bribe us … we’ve already been bribed.

The show will feature art made in SL. That includes photography and sculptures. We’re open to new ideas, so if you have something that doesn’t fit there, let us know!

A note …. once we close the application process, we will NOT be opening it again. Please don’t ask us for special consideration, etc. There will be another show in a year, so stick around and look for information in March of 2009!

Have a great time, keep up the great art, and watch this space for additional information!

So, you all heard Shoshana, if you want to exhibit at SL5B, get your ass over to The Exhibit Application form and I’ll see you there! ;)

* For those interested, I did a little overview of the Artists displaying work at SL4B and links to their websites - if I could track those down - last year. =)

Discovering the Garden… again… and again…

Artoo Magneto - Trees - The Rezzable Garden of NPIRL DelightsFor those of you that own a garden, did you ever ‘discover’ something in it? Something that makes you go ‘woooow, this is awesome’? It may be little things - a beautiful butterfly, a cute little frogg - or huge things - ‘hey, did I have a three, that grows eatable stuff?! Woot!’ A friend of mine recently discovered a secret pathway to the city centre in mine. How can one miss that? Well, there’s a whole pile of crap in front of it. :p Anyway, those little things can utterly amaze you. This is how I feel each time I visit the - Rezzable, yes, Jon, I won’t forget to put that in front this time - Garden of NPIRL Deligihts.

It’s huge, and although I saw it grow and flourish, there are that many builds I have not seen yet. Or that you take for granted, as being part of the Garden, but that are actually little artworks on itself. A beautiful example are Artoo Magneto’s beautiful trees: a small detail, easily overlooked, but it makes the whole… well.. astonishing.

Another thing that I overlooked - or did not know off - is my own, Dutch music heritage. Apparently the song ‘Het Land van Waas en Maal’s lyrics are about the Garden of Earthly Delights. Would be so kewl if it could be covered by an artist who performs at Gardenstock.

So, there are a few ways how you can discover the Garden of NPIRL Delights:

  1. Get the HUD. Available at The Dump entrance.
  2. Go to The Dump and go on foot - don’t forget to take a miner’s helmet - or fly or jetpack or whatever. NPIRL ways of strolling the Garden are encouraged.
  3. Go to The Dump and walk through the tunnel and take a tour vehicule. Best for easy adjustment to a huge load of NPIRL virtual art. The tours give you a great overview in less than 10 minutes, so it’s a great start before you explore on foot.

Let’s end with a quote of Lauren Weyland that I absolutely love:

Alice in Wonderland never fell far enough. Gulliver didn’t sail far enough. Michael Smith didn’t imagine enough. For if they had, their authors, Carroll, Swift and Heinlein would have written about the Rezzable Garden of NPIRL Delights.”

PS. Yeah, the belgian weather is back and it is sure as hell rainy. More SL playtime for Vint again! ;)

Dr Muglerstein - Me won! Me won!

Dr Muglerstein - vernissageLe jeudi 24 avril soir, j’ai gag…. euhm… wait… I won! I won! I won! What did I win? Best ‘photograph’ - virtual world photograph, that is - in the Dr Muglerstein’s Machinima & Fantastic Picture Experience contest. Yeeey! Winning in the category ‘Art de la métamorphose’ with my Valentine Squid pic - I love it even more now, it also won me the Koinup contest - I’ll receive a large print of me kissing the squid. And it will get to hang in Paris somewhere. Yeeey! All hail squids! ;)

Other winners are:

  1. Machinima - Marie Lauridsen
  2. Instantané Paysage fantastique - Amelia Fayray
  3. Instantané Portrait d’avatar mutant - Maya

Dr Muglerstein - vernissageI must admit I am a bit jealous of the machinima winner Miss Lauridsen. She will get a real life sculpture of her avatar, crafted by Standard Non Standard. I’m extremely curious how that one will look, and if the French company ‘Standard Non Standard’ is better at replicating avatars than the company we all now from the ‘take your avatar to work day’ ads. What they have up at their website under 3D printing (click ‘impression 3D’) seems promising.

But despite my jealousy, I’m already really happy I won in the first place. I did not expect that to happen at all. You can see the winning machinima, photographs and the other submissions at the Dr Muglerstein Island in Second Life. Oh, and don’t be surprised if they say ‘allo’ in stead of ‘hi’. ;)

“Primolution” was created in 2006 by Stella Costello and the photograph seen here was taken by Tao Takashi. Just to awesome to not share this finding with the rest of the my world:
