The result is not sure and always intersting, probably it is a mirror of our contemporary soceity feelings. Here follow all details on this art project.

Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

Bombas Nucleares Detonadas 1945-1998 by Isao Hashimoto artist

For this 2nd edition, which begins on 1 April 2011, the artistic sponsor is Kristine Schomaker, Gracie Kendal in SL, and Art Kahos is hosted by l’Ecole Sl, that also provides the counters. Each artist must use exactly 400 prims. Each artist will use about 100 prims per week, a counter will be in place so that everyone can follow the change in the workplace. The sponsor and the organizers will ensure the smooth progress of the sculpture. Artists should not communicate with each other on the final result. It is not a collective. But the result is a unique work together. Each artist will have to adapt to the work of others in any way he can’t undo the work of another artist. At the end of each working session of the artist, it should remain as permanent prims that can not be modified or removed during a subsequent session. The artist must be the creator of the prims and all elements that arise, they must be original, and does not come from a previous creation.

Pour cette 2ème édition, qui débutera le 1er avril 2011, la marraine artistique est Kristine Schomaker, Gracie Kendal in SL, et Art Kahos est hébergé par l’Ecole SL qui fournit également les compteurs. Chaque artiste devra utiliser 400 prims exactement. Chaque artiste devra utiliser 100 prims par semaine, un compteur sera en place pour que chacun puisse suivre son évolution dans le travail.

Le parrain, ainsi que les organisateurs veilleront au bon déroulement de l’avancement de la sculpture. Les artistes ne devront pas communiquer entre eux sur le résultat final. Il ne s’agit pas d’une construction collective. Mais le résultat sera une œuvre unique commune. Chaque artiste devra s’adapter aux travaux des autres, en aucun cas il ne pourra défaire les travaux réalisés par un autre artiste. A chaque fin de session de travail de l’artiste, il ne doit rester que des prims définitives qui ne pourront pas être modifiées ou enlevées lors d’une session suivante. L’artiste devra être le créateur de toutes les prims et éléments qu’il posera, ils devront être originaux, et ne pas venir d’une création antérieure. L’utilisation des Huge prims est autorisée sous condition qu’au moins une des dimension ne dépasse pas 50 cm. Les temp rezz est interdite. L’utilisation de scripts et de particules est autorisée (attention au lag quand même) Toutes les primitives devront être créées dans le groupe Art Kahos – Pirats (prévoir de rentrer dans ce groupe pour le 1er avril). Quotidiennement, des photos de la sculpture en progression seront prises, ainsi que des prises de vue par kamachinima prod. Un vernissage sera organisé, et la sculpture sera exposée pendant 1mois.

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.

burn 2.0  Xaan Allen (Merlino Mayo) installation

burn 2.0 Xaan Allen (Merlino Mayo) installation

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.
