interstellART and Virtual Nomads

Second Life is an ephemeral world. In search of affordable places, sims for artistic purposes, and in refuging and protesting against the price policy of some sim owners the result is, that a certain flexibility is needed. Luckily a nomadic virtual life is possible due to the existence of so called rezzers, which can save and store the coordinates of objects on a sim and rez them on another sim at the same place. Thanks to the developers of such useful tools, which at the same time are able to save copies of artwork in the inventories of artists in virtual worlds. 
The artist community interstellART can be found now here on the grid:
Visit the work of Frantz Catteneo, Merit Coba, Barret Darkfold, Claude Belgar, lalie Sorbet, Jaime Poutine, Wintergeist, Sheba Blitz, Elle Thorkveld, Kyoko, OHE54 and Asmita Duranjaya.

- UfoGallery: The Major Arcana
The Major Arcana
is a cooperative art project of all artists in residence on the art-exo-planet interstellART in Second Life: Merit Coba, lalie Sorbet, Claude Belgar, Barret Darkfold, Jaime Poutine, Frantz Catteneo, Vonnie Fox, Wintergeist, Elle Thorkveld, Kyoko, Ohe 54 and Asmita Duranjaya. Topic has been to create the Tarot-cards of the so called Major Arcana, the 22 main cards. Tarot is a kind of mystical approach to find out decisions for future life situations, but this art project focused on the artistic marrow of the card-names, like The Hermit or The Strength etc. and used them as a inspirational source. All artists did a phantastic job and the results will be presented to to the public on Monday 27th of March 2017 at 1pm SLT, introduced by Asmita's regular Fracticularium.

- Gallery Actual I on the art-exo-planet interstellART shows sensitive photos by Frantz Catteneo.
Frantz Catteneo is in love with the sensuality of women generally and the erotic radiation of artistically created female SL-avis. His photo-collages are fine-tuned compositions of shape, color, the ideal physical expression of his models and enhanced with a piece of music, which can be heard by clicking the artwork.

- Gallery Actual II: The MeshMaskMuseum
The MeshMaskMuseum 
on the art-sim interstellART shows 20 masks from 20 cultures in the world, created with Asmita Duranjaya's mesh-relief-technique. Masks are a visual form of cultural expression and are used as such in many rituals or theatre-types. The visitors will become familar with the cultural context of the masks by infos on ncs. They can be received by clicking on pins, which show the local origin of the masks on a world-map. Textile patterns of the same culture as the masks on the wall intensify the impressions. Cordial invitation!

LEA9 ENERGY in 5 Layers by Asmita Duranjaya

ENERGY

Energy = Transformation
Energy = Movement
Energy = Interaction
Energy = Love
Energy = Transcendence


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 I took from my art collection or some I got by asking recent artist-friends to contribute 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.



Layer: Energy = Transformation - this layer on the sim-basis has been transformed in the last days with energy-tools and art pieces with the topic ENERGY or TRANSFORMATION or POWER by several SL artists, like, Finny Yates, Wintergeist, Jaime Poutine, Elle Thorkveld, lalie Sorbet, LouEct. The transformatin will continue. Thanks to all the hidden contributors, whose tools I use for the sim-installation without reinventing the wheel.
