The Closing of LEA: My Thoughts..

My thoughts on the closing of Linden Endowment of the Arts (LEA)…

I have been asked by various people in Second Life on how I feel about the LEA sims closing and how it impacts art. I wondered why I was even getting such ims and questions, but it hit me that people remembered that I was on the LEA Advisory Committee and I have a big interest in the arts in Second Life, first with Kultivate and I am an artist in both worlds.

So here are thoughts which are all mine and no one else’s:

Winter Burn 2019: Seasonal Perceptions

seasonalperceptions2019-poster.jpg

Seasonal Perceptions: Theme for Burn2’s Winter Burn Event

Perception — the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses.

This is particularly important as we move through the seasons… especially the holidays.  However, our perceptions are affected by our environment… the things and people around us.  Even the weather!  At this time of year, one person might be shoveling the snow off his driveway while another might spend the day surfing the waves off the coast of Australia!

But it is also influenced by our imaginations.  Michael Whelan, a world-renowned artist, once did a painting of his young daughter who loved playing in the sandbox.  What he did differently is depict his daughter wearing a spacesuit and playing in a lunar sandbox!

Our perceptions ares a driving force in how we interact with the world around us.  But imagination is also a strong influencer.  Given all that, how would you perceive the seasons?  Would you reflect the environment around you… or imagine something completely off the wall and different?  Show us your “Seasonal Perceptions!”

Lamplighters will help to open the event with a walk-on from the Welcome Area to the main stage.

Artists and builders are invited to sign up for a plot (limited number, first come first served). We also have a collaborative build area set aside for Burners who would like to join a team with other creatives to build to theme. Signup is available at https://burn2.org/seasonalperceptions-buildsignup. On this form, one can indicate interest in the collaborative team or a single plot. There is also an opt-in available to be part of the Ten Principles Hunt if signing up for a single plot.

As for performers – live singers, group acts and DJs – watch for the self-signup to play at Burn2 in the next few days. If you know you are interested, you can contact Cuga Rajal inworld, until the signup sheet is available.

The Weather Machine will have its place at the center of the playa, an interactive build gleefully doomed to burn!

Mark Your Calendar and SHARE the News!

We look forward to welcoming Home Burners and community, to explore the builds and enjoy the music that will fill the air over the playa. The BURN2 Calendar at http://www.burn2.org/calendar will fill up quickly as performers sign up.
