My esteemed co-founder of the Virtual Artist Alliance, Rezago Kokorin, was kind enough to share this “bit of inspired insanity”. As such, I would like to share it with all of you. Thanks Rez!

Haiku Speedbuild- 31Jan08

February 1, 2008

Record attendance today with five builders and a fluctuation of spectators that ranged anywhere from four to eight people at any given time! I’m very glad to see that the word is getting around 😀 Unfortunately, we had to deal with the rolling restart today, so the region restarted right in the middle of the build… fortunately, we picked up where we left off almost seamlessly and finished the build without a hitch!

Theme haiku:

Unseen influences
Dream the world into being
Mandala of stars.
~Yvonne Aburrow

3rd Place- Rose Farina

2nd Place- Jeanni Nishi

1st Place- Sunn Thunders

Runners Up- Peli Dieterle and Welcome Doobie

All builds will be available for viewing until next week’s event– hope to see you there!

October Artist Networking Party

October 30, 2007

The VAA gallery has undergone some overhauling, and this is a sneak peak of what you will see when you first arrive 😀 The reason for the overhaul is this Wednesday, October 31st from 6-7PM– we are hosting an Artist Networking Party for the Best of SL Art, not only to encourage members of the community to go to the website to vote, but also to meet their peers in the art community and flex those networking muscles.

Joining us that evening will be DJ MariusNo1 Streeter, who will be sharing some serious Funk alongside his live turntable skills. Hope to see you there!

Happenings

October 21, 2007

This last week has been an exciting one! The VAA had its first speed-build, which was graciously hosted by VAA co-owner Rezago Kokorin at the Virtual Artist Alliance gallery in Chiaksan. The theme was “things that scare you”, and the resulting builds were awesome:

Coming in first place was Sunn Thunders’ “Afraid of Chaos”

Second place was Madcow Cosmos’ tiny cubicles.

Third place was Cos Hirano with “Vertigo”.

It’s amazing what one can do with 50 minutes and a 30 prim limit– I’m always impressed with the results of speed-builds!

More Pictures?! Oh goodness, yes.

The improvisation/collaboration event with Enniv Zarf and Gwenette Writer was undoubtedly the most fun I’ve had in Second Life in quite a while! Enniv Zarf was at the helm, improvising music on piano, Gwenette was reciting improv poetry, and I was building an improv sculpture– all feeding off of and contributing to one another’s works in a colorful flurry of creativity. It was definitely a unique experience, and I’m hoping to participate in another event like this very soon:

The last ten minutes of the concert invited the audience to participate by contributing poetry, particles, sculpture, music– anything and everything to collaborate and contribute to the experience. The next time you see a notice for one of these Collaborative Improv concerts, it is strongly recommended that you go– you’ll be in for quite a treat!
