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.

I have a account at There world but i never really explored it. http://www.there.com/ It is a nice little world that was closed for some years but now is run again.At the time i never really did any exploring so i have started out travelling in my jeep all over the place again. Lot of places i have never seen. The physics engine is great and that means you can really do stuff with vehicles. I love the look of the avatars. Maybe now when we have seen many virtual worlds There gets its chance again. It have a very clean look and runs on anything but the software have not been updated since Windows XP. Sorry to say. And I got the client running so and so on Linux too. My hope is that it all goes in the public domain. This is a gem of software that deserves more. I would love to run a There world. The things you could do..
I have a build on Cloud party and it is easy to visit right out of the browser. No login. https://www.cloudparty.com/loc/5875013754/-36.6,13.3,1,-2.3 Just wanted to test the building tools and I think they are ok. I am afraid that all the complicated mesh stuff have made people reluctant to use Second life. Building for everyone.
Now when we have to move the stores and gallery again I have been thinking hard about if I should scrap the total project. No more virtual worlds. Leaving Second life and close the Opensim servers. It is a lot of work to run everything and maybe I can make better use of my time and money. I can log in now and then but I do not have to be a creator. My problem is that I really believe that virtual worlds have a future. Today it is hard to make a buck and keep it going. Opensim have great potential and many dedicated developers working on it. But there is not many applications outside a few education and entertainment grids. We are a exclusive group that do this. Everything in my body, brain and business sense tells me to give this up. Well, I am probably a idiot. But I think I keep going. As a artist you always have to fight the odds so I am used to it. I have decided to continue to believe in virtual worlds against every good reason. See you around the grid and hopefully on the next Opensim conference.
