Today we are releasing the video for One Billion Rising in Second Life, and when you watch it, you’ll see that we visited some pretty amazing locations!
One that got all the participants excited was the Art installation we chose – which was Gracie Kendal’s Ce n’est pas une peinture on LEA15. The dancers changed into the skins that Gracie provided, and the special hair designed by Fuschia Nightfire – and danced on the water level. It made for a fantastic segment!
Here’s some background information:
GRACIE KENDAL also know as Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles, California. For over 14 years, she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world.
Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence.Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. She documents this experience on her blog.
And now … let’s do a jigsaw, taken from the video One Billion Rising in Second Life!
Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).
If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.
