När inga Animation Overrides ens går att ladda från Apmels inventory var det en välkommen gåva att få en inbjudan till ett event med denna explicita uppmaning:
For maximum enjoyment, we suggest you detatch any worn scripted objects and turn off AO's prior to arrival.
Och vilket event det var! Och är! Missa inte detta!
Det pågår hela juli. Min bilder och filmsnuttar kan bara ge en en glimt av de interaktiva äventyr ni får uppleva här.
The Caerleon Art and Education Sims in conjunction with the Virtual Art Inititiave invite you to experience a unique, entertaining and fascinating fun filled adventure at the Enviornmental Fluidity Collaboration Project which opens Sunday, July 4, 2010 at 12:00pm SLT.
Featuring original art and installations by Alizarin Goldflake, Artistide Despres, Banrion Constantine, Lollito Larkham, PattiAnne Daviau, Pixels Sideways and Wotthe Dickins, the widely diverse exhibits illustrate through numerous techniques the many facets of Environmental Fluidty.
As described by VAI director Georg Janick/Gary Zabel, "Envrionmental Fluidity is one of six aesthetic-technological dimensions that collectively distinguish the art of virtual worlds from earlier forms of art."
Janick/Zabel continues to further define Environmental Fluidity in his Theses on the Art of Virtual Worlds as such: " Envrionmental Fluidty is to the external virtual world what the protean character of identity is to the internal sphere. In Second Life, for example, the environment is constructed from graphical primitives and scripts that can be altered very rapidly. Constancy of environment is the exception rather than the norm. It is in the virtual world that Marx's famous observation about capitalist modernity first reaches fruition: All that is solid melts into air."
The artists of the Environmental Fluidity Collaboration Project set out to incorporate this idea and their own interpretations of Environmental Fluidity with art and installations that take visitors on a journey through environments such as AURALTOPIA that use only sounds as the artists medium to EVOTROPOLIS in which cities and towns change before your eyes to the EXQUISITE CORPSE featuring the PRIMOLATOR -- an interactive collaborative building project in which visitors are invited to participate and determine the outcome that will continue to change throughout the run of the show.
As you explore and enjoy discovering the diverse array of interactive, reactive, kinetic and fluid art throughout the exhibit, you'll find surprises around every corner and opportunities to become a collaborator as well.

EN FUNGERANDE SPEGEL !!!
Höjdpunkten var ändå den "box" där man kunde förvandla sig till teskedsgummestorlek!
(Jag lovar att lägga in mer info om den här "boxen" när jag hittar den och att lägga på ljudet i filmen när/om jag hittar det)
