free art ... art for free

Artist Mathilde Varghon is giving away art work for free. Each piece is worth about 800 L$ - so free doesn´t mean worthless.

Enter the hidden gift area behind the blue door in M. Varghon´s main place at Two Shores Gallery of Fine Art to discover the gifts and then grab them! The RL artist from Great Britain has realeased 12 art works but you can only catch 1 per day. Coming back every day means you can get all 12 pictures or sculptures. You have to enrole into her subscriber - it doesn´t burden your group list. You can find the subscriber after entering the blue door next to that tp landing point. But HURRY ... we have day 6 now and every day the art work of the former day is removed. Only 6 gifts are available now. Deadline is 6th of January.

FirleFanz catched her christmas gift. Thanks to the artist!

e-books


Tonight I joined a very interesting discussion about e-publishing. They talked about the importance of social networks (fb, twitter, google+, pinterest, ...) The author Michele Rubatino talked about her book and how she promotes it in her social netwoks and how important is to blog regularly and with a certain focus.
The picture above shows the group in Second Life which may be interesting for literature related people. The gather every second monday at 5 pm SL time on Book Island.

working around in Metropolis



My newest project I am working on is the "KunstKarton" and a huge birdhouse with my pictures in. The Metropolis people are a helpful and friendly community. I love it to be there. And I am planning to announce a reading for my vernissage. Who wants to can talk to me about reading in Metropolis - let´s do a reading before christmas! You can have a look on the parcel but I am still working on my buildings and pictures.

book shop on the corner





Today 11 am PDT opening of Cythleen Earhadt´s book shop on the corner. Music by Russel Eponym (Great Britain), readings by Michael Iwoleit and Merlin Thomas. Guests can enjoy the books, the virtual buffet and they can grab little presents. The little shop is a cuddly heartwarming location and it makes our SL richer.

erinnerungen



An interactive exhibition by ChapTer Kronfeld called "Erinnerungen" (memories)opened tonight. Click on the pictures and they will be opened like doors to uncover a second picture. ChapTer Kronfeld has uploaded his RL paintings. The exhibition is arranged like the Way of the Cross.

Glacier Island



No Octoberville in 2012 but the creators have been so busy to build Glacier Island. It is a christmas themed location with toys and gnomes, elves and reindeers, and and and ... Oh and snow! Definetely. What is Glacier Island? Those of you who weren´t avtive in Octoberville should know that it is a role play. You should find more than 100 items hidden all over the sim. Your viewer must be mesh-enabled. To reduce lag the owners recommend scripts under 50. Replacing the avatar´s hair by a hat is good for lag reducing, too.

torn in teleport

When I logged out everything´s okay. But logging in again showed me this weird picture: my avatar was torn in teleport! Ouch! So now we know what avatars have to suffer when we leave them alone in Second Life...

elbow´s art



Elbow Muggins is showing some interesting art works at Two Shores of Gallery Fine Art http://slurl.com/secondlife/Magna%20Carta/220/18/36. Some are artificial arranged RL pictures and some digital composed pieces. I visited the vernissage yesterday and will be back some more times to enjoy the arrangements.
Have a look on his website to get an idea about his work.
And here you´ll find the main gallery.

it´s cold outside

Time for christmas trees and heart warming tea, cookies and candles ... Ascandr is a dystopian region and a bad place for spending one´s christmas. But if you prefere nightmare places than go to this abandoned technical station and walk lonely through an icy surrounding. 




http://slurl.com/secondlife/Meribel/95/222/110
It is a star wars role play area and a lot to discover. The owner recoomend the following:


WARNING OF A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT!

Therefore please bear this mind when choosing your attire: being shirtless / wearing a skimpy top or other inappropriate dress will lead to rapid (IC) death!

comments on my last exhibit

I have read the public chat again with the comments the visitors made on my pictures. I didn´t copy any private messages so I hope it is okay to publish it here in my blog. I didn´t correct orthographic mistakes because I want you to read the original text and I don´t feel authorized to change anything. And you can read a short posting on Dings Digital´s blog and a bunch of visual impressions taken by BukTom Bloch.

FirleFanzerey

Last sunday was the opening of my exhibit FirleFanzerey. I choosed this name because I mixed my styles - digital art, fractals, SL snapshots, some RL pictures ... so firlefanzing with my stuff ... The audience was great: encouraging, interested, curious. I love it to lead them through my works. ArrowAndBow and Joachim Thor had invited me and after the opening the musicians came and played their rythms. If you missed the opening, don´t worry. It will be open for the next few weeks. Questions to my pictures? Please contact me and ask! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Sezuan%20Moloko/23/39/2502
Uploading textures, creating prims, talking in IMs, hanging objects on the wall, ... Thousands of doings before opening the exhibit. And boum - being send into the pixelfree nirvana. 

Mr Kueperpunk himself came to watch my artworks

It was a great audience - encouraging, interested, curious.

I leaded them through the exhibit and enjoyed it a lot!

Mermaid in a can - little art joke made by FirleFanz
Sunday evening was my exhibit FirleFanzerey. I choosed this name because I mixed my styles - digital art, SL snapshots, some RL pictures. At least I was firlefanzing with my stuff.
I welcomed many visitors I never met before

Art on 5 floors. The visitors followed me via teleports. And after that the musicians played their rythms.

art & music

Next sunday I will be showing my art work. I have build a small gallery up in the sky over the entschleunigt. Come around and enjoy 3 cool musicians: Pol Arida, Automatic Quandry and Krakov Letov. I have more than 1 floor to exhibit so I have added a lot of pictures and couldn´t decide which main theme it is. Sooooo..... tadaaaa .... I have decided to call my exhibition FirleFanzerey.

interactive art

"Separated by the same moonlight"

Elros Tuominen, artist from Spain, is actually showing some interesting and interactive art installations in the Artemis Gallery. You can click the works and sit on them.

"Golgota" . You know to which place the installation referrs? To the place where J.C. has been crucified.

faces



Okay. This is my second video and I am trying my best. Still no music but I am working on it. I´m looking forward to seeing your comments ("Wow worldshaking!!" or "What a shit") here on my blog.

Metropolis

A friend invited me to Metropolis. It is an open sim hypergrid. I have created an avatar today and logged in with the Hippo viewer. The picture shows me waiting for the train to bring me anywhere in the new metaversum ... I spend my first time in Metropolis with collecting freebies and they really have a lot! There is a kid´s community, too. They give away for free furniture, clothing, avatars, shoes, ... So you can walk through this virtual world without a dollar in your pocket. I didn´t met any other people. I felt like in my very first days in SL: No idea where to go, nobody to chat with, nothing to do there. I hope that will change .... I joined some groups to get hopefully some new contacts and I founded my own group - Kunstkraxler.
And as far as you are thinking about to get land there - the first 3 months are for free!
