Reading up on some books from a new perspective.
My work is mostly experimental. I always want to know what happens if you put this thing on this one. Will there be some great art then?
I have worked forever trying to find what art is all about and new media and computers are one of my greatest friends. Hacking art and soceity to find the basic code behind it all. I use my knowledge of building hardware and writing software to do experiments in digital art and research our lifes and death.
The creation process is the same if you paint or use digital media. My work spans a lot of areas. Sometimes maybe they are to many. After art school i started out as a painter but i quickly got in to computers and the Internet. I still like to work with digital media. Exploring virtual worlds and create art for the web and games. Today i got the Oculus rift that makes it possible to bee in a alternate reality. I think art willl never be the same.
I do a lot of graphic design for digital media in gaming and virtual worlds. And i love the digital camera. I do not have to work in a smelly darkroom anymore if i do not want to. I do many purely digital pictures in software and as a photographer at the hypergrid. And i also have a gallery there where i can show of my work. It is all net, servers and streaming information.
The road is open.
The work continues.
I think you should try it out. Really love the pictures and the gallery. Always use my Oculus it is frame rate friendly.
Pride Second life is in full swing and it is a success so far. Sim is full so if you want to go be in time.
I just have to go this week and you too. Come and support. There is still a lot of life in Second life.
I think maybe this is one of the best industrial builds I have ever seen.
And the club almost made me cry that I cant got there in Real. Ohh I enjoyed it.
A cab for you This place
This is a nice sim or many i do not know. There are really nicely built. I came here by train so i do not know where i am and i do not want to open the map to spoil the illusion. Walking around using my Oculus really takes me back to the old Sweden when i was i child. No not the 1920´s. I am not that old. But where my grandmother lived looked something like this. Heaven for a child to explore.
Maybe that´s why i love explorig in SL?
As always I like the new installation by Cica Ghost. There are a lot of mesh stuff but good frame rate for my Oculus so it is well done.
Have no idea what it means but you can always go and see for you self.
Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.
Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.
Visited the beach today and i am amazed. The mesh quality of things in Second life. And done right it is not very hard on the graphics card. Reducing lag. If it is done right.
I used my Oculus to inspect the nice work and it made it a very nice experience, blink, blink. ( Did you see that.)
Now we only need a new viewer and some some new shaders to play around with.
The thing we all have been looking for is finally out there. Linden labs Sansar. I have been checking it out for a while but now i can write about it and that is nice.
And so is Sansar. Nice.I have a Oculus so i can check out the experiances all the way. And i still say Sansar is nice. The graphics good. The update is good. Will be great if you want to do a simple game. And i suppose people will create new tools you can use to make buildning easy. As a user of AltspaceVR, sinespace, High Fidelity and now Sansar i just ask my self "will anybody ever use these products?"
It have a distinct feel of Blue Mars. You wait for the download and then come into a small space that look great and wonder why am i here? Is there any reason at all?
There will be some cool games i guess. But if i want to play a really cool game i have Steam.
At the moment i think it is a question about wait and see.
PS/ When i get out of Sansar i go back to my ordinary life at the Hypergrid and Second life. It is more fun! /DS
