Preparing Burn2.0


Here we are! The Burn2.0 is near to start and from backstage it is already started with limited access for builders. Yes I must say, it’s a bit sad to remember that great past versions of same inspiration manifestation as Burning Life 2009 (6 editions) with an incredible and neverseen all linked park expo with 32 sims of Second Life gived from Linden Labs, the past magnificent event of Art into the metaverse BLife with great staff art organizers expert as White Lebed that I like to remember for her great work of past editions, she gave also her point of view about what happened in this last summer transition between the two different concepts editions. Now the new Burning Man (RLife) inspired event become Burning 2.0 and it is composed from  6 sims but all private owned on new organization that obviously needs to grow up in the next years. So it seems to found a new idea order, to plan into a different point of view, where everybody needs to pay (this year now it is 8000 ld for a plot standard) for a plot area 32 x 32 mt with 351 prims, and usual many rules, limits as do not use huge prims, no rezzer with temp prims, no large use of sculpts, huge scripts, for builders and  no commercial logo, no selling, respect of SLife TOS policy, ect.

I can see actually some good well known artists presences as Bryn Oh, AM Radio, Soror Nishi, Ub Yifu, Betty Tureaud, Maryva Mayo, Miso Susanowa, Wizard Gynoid, Sledge Roffo, Gracie Kendal, Chipley Chippewa, Maya Paris, Solkide Auer, ect. many are new too so we can have a little but good artists selection in this, we can say, a new born event and a new seed of relevant art events into metaverses, I am sure we will see great things in the future.

So this year almost all plots are with payment fees, 25 with lottery 100 ld. price and 12 free plots with Theme Assignement. So my symbiont Xaan Allen won a plot at the lottery for random lucky avatars! And I putted in 2 friends as cobuilders Shanti Yutani and Dixit Writer.

Title of mine installation at Burn2 :
Ignis Homo – Man of Fire –
The giant Man of Fire is the “power”, he is standing on a transparent city made of rust buildings under fire, the shadow men’s army try to climb and to conquest the giant, but they fail, they are trapped into the buildings and become black shapes, the few that reach the top are throwed away in the sky by the hands of power. The Sun is a Machina, a metal sphere constantly moving, it’s the symbol of the technologic perfection but also of a beautiful cage.

Imagine Festival 2009 at CARP my installation Erudium


10/2009 “IMAGINE FESTIVAL” http://imaginefestival.wordpress.com/ into the Imagine Festival we can found the partecipation of Yoko Ono.
With my  installation ERUDIUM, I took part in “Imagine Festival 2009 live events” in the CARP with others groups. ERUDIUM is constructed on a single platform which makes it possible for me to continue trying out scripts, manipulated sounds and rotational movements, creating an interactive work that the visitor can experience for themselves in a totally unique way every time they visit the structure.
