Art in Rezzer-Pads

The PopUp-Art-Concept of Betty Tureaud on the joined LEA-sims 26-29 is a brilliant example of managing huger art installations without using permanent prims. It can insofar even seen as an ecological art project, because it simply saves energy. And it has the immersive value for visitors, that they themselves, while crossing the area can decide, which artwork they want to let popping up by stepping on one of the dots. Every dot hides one artwork from one artist and will be shown by "collision" in the SL-language. And a so called "die"-script makes the installation disappear again after a time, maybe after 10, 15 or 30 minutes. So more than 100 artists can be presented in one area, because temporary prims don't count for the land-impact. Since long time artist Asmita Duranjaya uses this rezzer-concept for her own artwork on her small land at Space 4 Art. It gives the possibility to preserve and present past installations and exhibitions for a longer time. And the artist has the option to change the environment and atmosphere of a plot just by click. One recommendable rezzer system is the Multi-Scene-Packager, which can be bought in marketplace: 
So art spots in SL can get rid of the box-concept, where art is presented in RL-like buildings of wannabe-gallerists, on walls or at least as RL-like sculptures in an RL-like nature. GOSH. SL and its concept has much more to offer than to imitate RL. After so many years of usage it should have been realized also by more than a handful of artists and their manqué counterparts, that there are specific tools in SL, which offer specific new options for creating and presenting art. Artists should protest against being again imprisoned in shoe boxes and should enjoy their freedom to create in open spaces and in unconventional ways. The LEA-sim concept could be used as a very good pioneer for that - but it is not meant for art in shoe-box-coffins.
Away from this discussion take a look on the interactive CyberMonstrance, the pop-up piece of Asmita purely made of fractal textures, with different windlight settings on Betty's exemplary project:

The COSMIC Outfit by LUXE Paris
Created by the designers Parisian Skytower and Mika Palmyra of LUXE Paris, the COSMIC outfit teleports us to the year 3000. In this era, the sun emits rays that can pierce your skin even through the eternal night caused by the nuclear pollution surrounding this planet. 
Therefore, Mina Bucci is wearing the COSMIC Cape with a deflector collar that protects her from the burning solar powered rays. Enclosed in the cape to go outside, Mina feels sexy knowing she is wearing a crop top made with recycled tires and a shiny metallic leggings with straps to hold her laser guns, for additional protection. She is woman and armor.

Discoveries on LEA10


The Oracle is another tale in the cycle of stories around the exo-city CyberPolis. Presented in a hud-book, it is told from the perspective of researcher Lisa Sheldrake, whose report guides the visitors of the sim LEA10 through a game. 



6 letters and 7 gifts have to be claimed inside and outside of a central maze until the solution word is found and the door to the oracle in the middle of the sim can be opened. 


The frame idea is, that the astro-anthropologist tries to find out, whether humans have visited CyberPolis in former times and what influences they left on the planetary system. The discovery of strange monitor-bots all around the maze shows her the evidence of an early contact and a probably unwanted influence of the human visitors. The alien-species in this area, called FractAliens, saw the monitor-affininty of the guests erroneously assuming that the monitors were the heads and brains of them. 



A new bot-species was born and even the one and only Oracle consists of the body of an insect and the head of a TV. The Oracle is an AI(artificial intelligence) and able to answer questions in open chat.


The full-sim-installation can also be experienced without game or story, simply as an art-park with forests of stunning 3D-fractals and the maze can be seen as a subterranean art gallery with flat fractal-pictures. The color-scheme of yellow-orange-red is predominant and the visitor can stroll around or fly in a fractal blossom, listening to ambient music.


Ambient music will also be played during the celebration party for this sim-installation on 17th of April 2016 at 1pm SLT. Michael K. Iwoleit aka maikelkay in SL will give a live-concert on his synthesizers and the artist Asmita Duranjaya will accompany his music with painting particles above the temple of the one and only Oracle.
