When i explore Second life around i find galleryś with digital art everywhere. Photography made in SL. Sculptures made for SL. All kind of digital art. It is a explosion of this so before limited art form. And many pieces are very good , too.
I wonder if the art world outside of SL have any idea of what is going on?
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.
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.
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 in Second life. And i also have a gallery there where i can show of my work.
The road is open.
The work continues.
Trying to get out of mainstream projects and do some far out stuff like the 8 core cooler i got here.
Working on setting up this new blog and it goes so and so.
It is almost not so fun.

It seems that somehow my brain have accepted that the world I see thru the Oculus is not the real one and I do not get so sick anymore. Plastic thing the brain. So now I can go on all the great rides all around Second life. I have always loved rides. I have done all the train rides in SL and some more. Now going on rides are even more fun. Some scenery's are just astonishing in the Oculus. And yesterday I did two transports in Euro truck simulator. Before I could not take more than 5 minutes. Had some steering problems and drove up on the side of the highway. The truck leaned and I tried to hold on to not fall of. Sometimes it is just too real.
Sometimes you find a artist that you just want to show to the world. Tomais Ashdene is such a artist. In his work I find more than just pictures of the Second life world. There are stories. What happened before or what happens after. It is not just the perfection in the technical work but the way he makes the image continue to explore his virtual life and the world around him. There are many good photographers in Second life but very few that makes the pictures relevant even beyond the virtual self. I am happy that we can show Tomais pictures and you are all welcome this Saturday the 10 at 1pm SL time to party and meet the artist.
