Burn2 – It’s That Time Again

Every year since the beginning of time Gora & I have attended Burn2 in SL in October. This time it’s a little smaller (once again), but also amazing and so much fun. This year I went as an old granny and Gora as a skeleton.

We saw The Man – The Man that will turn into The Burning Man in a weeks time.

There is a lot of art at Burn2 – some of it good, some of it not so good. We tend to dwell on the stuff that we like – for a short while – Gora gets restless if we hang too long. Dido’s and Nitro’s Gallery we enjoyed for a full 15 minutes!!!

Burn2 is 6 SIMs so if you want to see it all in a couple of hours, you need to get yourself some transport. We were lucky – we found an Elephant Taxi. A huge beast that easily could carry us both . Others would stop and stare, because as Gora said: “Wouldn’t you? A skeleton and an old bag on an Elephant?” Of course she is right.

A really fun morning, but nice to get off that elephant and stretch one’s back. There is still a week of Burn2 and I think I will go back and see things by walking and not in a rush. Thanks to Gora, the Elephant & Burn2 this rainy Sunday Morning turned out sunny and fun.

Tutsy Navarathna uses Binemist in UWA Machinima

The University of Western Australia (UWA) in Secondlife is holding a 3D Art & Film Challenges called Transcending Borders. It’s always exciting to see the entries – I love both SL Machinima and SL Art.

The other day I got a message in-world from Yoon – assistant to machinima maker Tutsy Navarathna. In it she told me that Navarathna is participating in the UWA Challenge and that he has used Binemist in his film. Navarathna has won MachinimaUWA 3 times, and the film he made for this round is lovely. You can see it here:

Drax on iOS SLGO and Binemist

I love Draxtor – his radio hour-podcast with Jo Yardley, but also and kinda more his machinima – sometimes I think I aspire to be like him. I know I never can be, I am not a journalist. I admire him greatly, and every time I – or my SIM gets mentioned on any of his shows, I get so darn proud.

Here is Drax talking about the new SLGO onlive for iOS, and he is on Binemist. I just love that so much.

Bryn Oh Retrospective

I spend Saturday afternoon exploring LEA 9 as it hosts a Bryn Oh Retrospective. Bryn Oh is one Secondlife’s well-known artist, and I have followed her work since I discovered her and the SecondLife art scene in 2009.

I love Bryn Oh, her poems, her stories and her work in SL. SL being what it is – virtual and constantly evolving – Bryn Oh often makes machinima of her installation. Her machinima work has been – and still is – a great inspiration to me. Her tone and her mood always gets me completely. So I recommend that you go to LEA9 and spend an afternoon there. It is amazing and so much fun to see her work, read her stories and see her machinima.

The exhibit is big – so it takes a while to see it all

 

Inara Pey wrote very informative post about the exhibit on her blog Living in the Modem World:

Byrn Oh retrospective, LEA9

Bryn Oh is perhaps one of Second Life’s most respected and well-known artists. Her work spans the last seven years of SL’s history, and her installations have been visited by many in that time, whilst also making frequent appearances in the Destination Guide. Over the years, her pieces have grown from static sculptures to region-wide art-focused experiences, rich in narrative and elements of gameplay. It also spans the virtual and physical divide, having appeared at exhibitions, shows and festivals around the globe, marking her as an internationally regarded digital artist – in every sense of the word “digital”.

Such is the extent of Bryn’s work, that and in-depth retrospective is perhaps long overdue. Chance Acoustic and Art Blue have offered a modest, but attractive means of celebrating Bryn’s work through A Room for Ferrisquito. However, Bryn’s catalogue is so vast, it cries out for something…

Inside the Villa on Bjarne’s Mountain

Bjarne’s mountain has been a bit bare for a while, but then I move the Falu red Farm Shed down when I needed prims and down scaled the platform in the sky. That helped, and Bjarne wasn’t completely alone anymore. More people came to visit and pet him. He seemed happy.

Now it’s autumn in the Northern hemisphere, and I love the red and yellow trees on SL. I also went to the Home & Garden Expo and I picked up a new house – the plywood mountain home from Apple Falls. What could be more appropriate? I have given it a good autumn feel and it’s raining…

User Guide to Binemist Portals

I love manuals/user guides/instructions (even rules). I find them extremely useful, and seeing that I have made a tricky teleport system on Binemist, I thought I would make an illustrated user guide to help you find all the different portals on Binemist.

Lets start…

I have placed a portal at the Tuscan Villa in the sky. It’s the barrel of water in the court yard. When you move your mouse over the barrel, you will get the option to sit. Please do…

Barrel @ the Tuscan Villa

You will be transported to the sea bed under the Viking ship

Whenever you see a door mat, it is likely a portal to somewhere else on Binemist. Move your mouse over the door mat and if you get the option to sit, you have found the portal. Of course as in all things; no rule without the exception, and here it is – the star portal:

You’ll find it next to Tuscan Villa and it will take you to the under water cinema

Bjarne’s Mountain – that incidently got an autumn coat today – also have a portal. In the café you will find a doormat, a kitten and a portal:

This will also take you under water – to the arty corner under the Viking ship

On the platform in the sky – at the Ice Café you will also find a door mat and a portal. This portal will take you to one of the house on the surface

The last portal you will find at the light house. Once you get there, open the door and venture all the way up to the platform. Work up the courage to jump over the fence:

– and you will see yourself emerging under water next to some awesome elephants

I hope you find this manual/user guide/instruction helpful. I work in IT and we love the phrase RTFM (Read The F**king Manual), so consider yourself instructed/warned :-))

Laurine made machinima on Binemist

I stumble over this very cute little video made at Binemist. I really like it. I think it tells a little story but I am not sure, as I don’t understand the French written on the film. I like it, the music fits very well. It’s just nice.

It bothers me however that the mesh island is material ready and looks shiny in some viewers. I really don’t understand why you would make a moss-overgrown rocky island material ready anyways. I really must talk to the creator about that.
