Upcoming Art Exhibit!

published 14.Dec.11 by Carol Pfeifer/Tayzia Abattoir

The full sim exhibit celebrates ART with MUSIC, MOTION, LIGHT & COLOR.  Join us in Second Life on Sunday, December 18th at 12pm slt.

STAR DANCE-Created by Gwen Carillon

In the above 3d light sculpture, the pieces glide gracefully to mimic a beautiful dance.  You cannot see the motion and movement, or hear the music and sound of the pieces in this exhibit …unless you drop by and see them!

The exhibit can be found on the NMC Campus sim of Ars Simulacra in Second Life. We invite you to explore the question that is so often asked these days: Is art created in a virtual world, really art?

GEOMETRICS #1 & 3-Created by Maryva Mayo

Here you see the Geometrics wall art, created to display smooth motion of  shapes and color. These pieces will keep you mesmerized.

According to Wikipedia, art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (often with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and affects one or more of the senses, emotions, and intellect. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression.

KINETIC SPIRALIUM-Created by Lea Supermarine

The Kinetic Spiralium, one of the pieces in this exhibit is truly an amazing work art.  The overall geometric shape is formed of cubes and lines forming intricate shapes of their own. The piece gently turns within a transparent  black casing while soft subtle colors strategically placed lend yet another interesting element to the piece.

While you may not be able to physically feel the art in a Virtual World you can take it in visually & emotionally, as well as experience the music, motion, and interactivity.

NEW ART #1-Created By Spiral Walcher

The New Art #1 piece in the above photo is a beautiful kaleidoscope-like sculpture. The vibrant colors and light variations change constantly.

I welcome you to come see for yourself. There are over 30 artists that have work on display in the sim, and some have more than one piece. Walk up to each piece in avatar.  Dare not stand in one place and try to view the exhibit with your camera, as you will miss much of the motion, sounds and the interactive properties of some of the pieces. Listen, observe, interact and enjoy!
