Artists on the Green

published 13.Aug.06 by Alan Levine

We had quite the turnout yesterday for our Artists on the Green event, where both art and its creators were both assembled on NMC Campus to dialogue about art in Second Life.

Our panel session with Second Life audieoces ran for almost an hour, and for many it was the first time to pair the voice with the avatar– we were able to bring in the artists by teleconference and Skype and broadcast it via streaming audio to the Gonick Theatre music channel (a chat transcript is also available).

Before and after, we ran some videos of SL machinima and other videos on the main auditorium screen, including:
