How 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. =)
