Art Blue: Hello my friend. I will open the Room FERRISQUITO at sim Claressa showing 25 early works of Bryn Oh (2008-2011) on Wednesday, Sept, 3rd at 8.00 SLT / PDT [=16.00 London time, 17.00 Paris time]. I will do a 20 minute prelude, a one-man theatrical performance “KNOWING”, starting exactly at 8.08 SLT. At 8.30 will be the Grand Opening of the Room and the artworks will then rez instantly. The room FERRISQUITO, created by Chance Acoustic, aka Cath Cole, is a part of the time capsule VULCANICUS in opensim. There is a 1 prim booklet FERRISQUITO as a memory on this event you can get on Sept. 3rd, 2014 in SL after the Grand Opening at about 08.45 AM PDT.
Pre-Annoucement for Opensim Worlds:
On September, 17, 2014 will be a presentation of the room FERRISQUITO in the opengrid realm Metropolis within the HG safari tour stating the first public creation of a world by WORLDARTIFICER. A worldartificer, the first known in history is First Prim, is able to create a new world, a new life when there will be no death: “And death shall have no dominion” [Dylan Thomas].
In 2047 death will find back to its true meaning, the way it was ment by the makers: there is no need of death in transition, in the change of worlds, in the travel. The EJECT of you during the restart of the region you have been in will be left behind and a WORLDARTIFICER does you MAKE BELIEVE on September 17. There are 7 chairs on 3 rows. 21 will become known as the first ever making the transition on September, 17, 2014, 1.00 PM PDT. You will look at THE BLUE ELEPHANT and the world you are inside will change and RIFT your HORIZON. Then you will enter the ROOM FERRISQUITO, a part of the art conservation project VULCANICUS.
The tour on September, 17 starts at noon PDT [20.00 GMT]. One hour later we shall meet at FUTURELAB in Metropolis grid. If you want to join get in contact with one of the rangers of the Hypergrid Safari (best via facebook HG safari). It will be also the farewell event for my long time employee and student Daniel aka Qnav What as he finished his degree and leaves the university in September to head to industry for “real money”. I shall not tell too much as he will read these lines 🙂
An offer for a co-worldartificer:
If any gifted builder wants to become “a helper”, “a collegue”, “a student” – or whatever name fits well to work, so I say “a co-worldartificer” – then IM me Art Blue in SL or opensim. I have some ideas for stories that lead to the core of existence in mind and the buildings for this have to be set up in opensim (and maybe also as a temporary copy in SL). I am artist in “minimal art” and a so called conceptual artist [means I let work others for me] – basically I reduce things to “the minuum” and the co-worldartificer shall help that the audiece does not run away after 3 minutes as not many like “the minimum”. Let me quote from “The Still Not Known” in The Artefact, published in rezmagazine, June 2014.
“How to please the public – that’s the test,
But nowadays I find I’m in a fix;
I know they’re not accustomed to the best,
But they’ve all read so much they know the tricks.
How can we give then something fresh and new
That’s serious, but entertaining too?”
Goethe, Faust, Part I: Prelude On The Stage; translation by John R. Williams (1999)
‘Claressa‘ is the name of the land we have in Second Life for ‘The Half Mile Gallery‘ since 2009 and for RIFT HORIZON events. [In some books and articles we published between 2007 and 2009 you find a landmark Symmetry 240, 4, 25. There is a memorial plate there so readers shall find our new home easily.
To understand RIFT HORIZON it would be best to start in history, in the history of Digital Art. But who wants to look back when one also can look ahead? So lets start with the future, where “Art Blue” looks back to the past and present. It is the story “THE ARTEFACT“, published in rez Magazine.
Second Life of Linden Lab is one world of many of this kind. The technology is open source. So you can create your own world open for everyone to visit and share your work, your dream. You find some information, easy to read, in an article The Primcurator. In case you have heared of VULCANICUS, the Volcano of Art and you want to visit it, then enter Metropolis grid. Second Life has the advantage of more people around, but carries for artists a bunch of disadvantages. Best to forward you to C.A.L.L. [Creators Against Linden Lab]. I feel sorry on this change as you see me here in 2008 with Jean Linden in Karlsruhe at the first Metaverse SL conference and a friend who helped me to make my first tiny steps in this realm in 2007. We [at Stiftung Kunstinformatik – means nonprofit Trust for Programmed Art] use now opensimulator technology since 2011, which is compatible to Second Life primworlds.
At RIFT HORIZON you find the daVinci machine. Watch or be part in a play or a performance which comes usually with the opening or closing of an exhibtion. A play normally is very short as it is about to introduce a gift you will get. Just join the group dont panic.
