LEA18 - Afternote: Existence in Balance .. information, 2 new shows are planned - JenniferMay Carlucci



From  Kayleigh Quan...
The date and time reads May 6th, 13.00 PDS/22.00 hours CET. Nervous but very positive vibes can be felt on the LEA 18 sim .: Existence in Balance :. Today is the big day of the event of “We Are One”. 
A dance show carried out by our wonderful dancers in combination with Team SkyFire, Particle Tom and Lexie Marshdevil. Last checks are being done. Music ready? Check! Dancers ready? Check. Team SkyFire ready? Check. And of course, audience ready…Yes, a firm check on that one too.

LEA18 is filling up with residents who want to experience what .: Existence in Balance :. wants to share with the theme “We Are One”. 
It is amazing to see how many residents come to our show.  With a capacity of approximately 70 avatars being allowed on the sim, JenniferMay thought it might be a good idea to ensure residents were able to see the show, even when the sim is fully packed. 
So, to ensure everybody could enjoy the performance, Jesseca Tiger set up a live stream https://picarto.tv/ExistanceinBalance.

About the performance itself, to be honest, I don’t have enough words to describe it. It is an amazing, wonderful, unique, heart-warming, loving combination of music, costumes, dance movements and particles. Giving the residents an amazing sight for sore eyes.

In the words of the creator of .: Existence in Balance .: , Jennifer May Carlucci “From the start it was my goal to show people how glorious this earth is we life on, without pushing them into a warning or lifting a finger wagging 'what if...”. 

The EiB team received so many positive and warm responses, it was so overwhelming and swept us of our feet. All the congratulations and “aawwes” and “ohhhs” overflooded my IM box. And from what I understood, it was no different in the boxes of all who are involved. Many residents who followed the live stream were asking if there will be another performance. 
Watching the stream only made them wanting to see the show 'We Are One 'and experience it in person.

So, albeit this was supposed to be a one off performance, the heart-warming reactions of many made the team decide to set up 2 MORE shows
Keep an eye open on this space, as soon as we have a date, we will share this in here.

In the meantime, feel free to watch the live stream https://picarto.tv/ExistanceinBalance  and have a look at our .: Existence in Balance :. - Dancers and team SkyFire -  [https://www.flickr.com/photos/29052432@N02/albums/ Existence in Balance]. 

We have done our very best to capture the essence of the wonderful show, moments of love and awesomeness. 

Pictures of various photographers can be found here.

Love and Light,
Kayleigh Quan

LEA9 Sim Wide Art Installation Official Open


Energy = Transformation  TELEPORT
The basic layer shows some possibilities of transformation, which  the mankind has used
during the history to  produce physical energy.
The utility poles refer to  the electrical energy, which is won by transforming  water, wind, sun
or terrestrial heat.
The base-texture shows  the center of a nuclear fusion-reactor, which might be used to transform energy for a future generation.
The spaces on this layer  are used to display the artwork of some colleagues  focusing on the topic energy.
The teleport-pad can be used to reach the other layers.

Energy = Movement: TELEPORT
Second Life has a lot of options for movement, be it in dance-animations or by using scripts to let textures move.
Vehicles and even bot-avatars can be  setup to move repeatedly on a certain trace or to roam free and according to the control of a person behind the screen.
The layer MOVEMENT shows some of  those possibilities and how they can be used to produce especially animated art pieces.

Energy = Interaction: TELEPORT
The layer INTERACTION provides opportunities for the visitor to trigger visual events by collision or by touch. In the corners he can create his own fracticle-show (fracticle=fractals as particles) by touching the round buttons.
In long black tubes collisions trigger not only visual  but also sonic events.

Energy = Love: TELEPORT
The LOVE-layer shows several  artistic options how to express  the term LOVE in a virtual world:
- mesh- and sculpty-statues by Asmita Duranjaya,
- roses and rose-petals with hover-text,
- a tree-sculpture with heart-leaves,
- animated lips,
- artwork concerning the topic love by bachi Cheng, Aloisio Congrejo, Frantz Catteneo, Kolor Fall and Ohe54, an anonymous Indian artist etc.

Energy = Transcendence: TELEPORT
The layer TRANSCENDENCE leads the  visitor into another dimension beyond reality and virtuality. The mind can become unified with the eternity ...

Take a seat in one of the capsules and let you elevate to the transcendence-sphere;
sit on one of the yellow moving objects and take a bath in color, shape and sound ...

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 pieces are from my art collection and some are contributed by invited artist-friends 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.

Thanks to all the hidden contributors, whose tools I used to create the sim-wide art-installation without reinventing the wheel....

LEA6 Slatan Dryke's Crumbs from my Nightmares Opening

                               http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA6/100/162/22


                                                 "Crumbs From My Nightmares" 
                                              Opening May 5th,2017 at 1:30 pm slt

“I wish to build in such a manner as if I were photographing my nightmares”.   Slatan Dryke

“What matters is what appears in your soul, not what your eyes see and what you can name".   Slatan Dryke

How could I express what a nightmare is with simple words ?

The breaking into the nights of unknown and disturbing elements, made visible by the Imaginary as a bearer of psychic content, free from the control of the principle of rationality.

The Imaginary is not real but true, messenger of a profound truth, therefore recognizable and unacceptable.

The monsters represent the dark parts of the soul, in their various erotic, anxious or aggressive components.

The Imaginary with its strange and disturbing images causes the turmoil that threatens the familiarity of the daily life.

The perturbation as a feeling of fear and repulsion, arises from the risk of revealing the "ghost" of desire and how much strong is the wish to control it.

The irresistible necessity of controlling, natural in mankind, produces that protective mechanism that has enhanced the existence with monsters, vampires and ghosts, not only in dreams and nightmares.

The importance of the fascination for the deviant, is born and grows in the imagination that is the strongest and boldest expression of the intimate, even if nobody has access to its keys.

Don't panic, these are my nightmares, just MINE ! 

- Slatan Dryke -

LEA29 -- Opening Event for Perceptions #2 by Norton Lykin on May 5th at 2pm SLT




Opening Event May5th, 2pm SLT


PERCEPTION

(Google: The ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses.)

Floating around in a bubble with a random changing point of view offers you an ever changing imagery; no two experiences will be the same. This corresponds with how we perceive ourselves and our lives, equally depending on our perspective and what we choose to surround ourselves with. The key is to become aware, and discover one self.
It is in our nature to identify what we see, very practical when maneuvering in traffic but also a hindrance in discovering the unexpected:  Some wise girl or boy once said, “it is when we are lost we find new ways.”
