1.00 PM SLT – ”Your breath was shed” is an art installation that search one of three topics little discussed within narratology. An artist and a blogger was invited to express themselves through the theme ”Breath”.
Fjara is an uncompromising blogger with her own honest expression that simultaneously conveys the mystique of being an avatar and human. For this project, she was asked to create a place as a contrast to the conceptual expression of the artist.
Giovanna Cerise is now an established artist in SL. She creates a blend of space, expression and sound in her art. In her artistic expression in this project you can stand in the middle and and be the observant of a story that unfolds around you. Remember to enable sound in her installations. More about Giovanna here: http://giovannacerise.blogspot.no/
Mimesis Monday/Heidi Dahlsveen is the curator and in this project an artistic modifier.
2.00 PM SLT – ”Wear to move” this is an invitation to enter an instant artistic creative collaboration. This is a performance where you can become the protagonist if you want. The performance artist Saveme Oh creates unique moments of moves and scenes for us to enter.
Saveme Oh is an well known performance artist in SL. Through her presence we are emperors without clothes. Her witty sharpness transforms simple “IM’s” into dramatic texts published on her blog. In this way, she makes sure that the virtual art continues to evolve.
Sheherazade is the storyteller in ”One thousand and one nights” where the frame story tells about a king who marries a new virgin everyday and next morning kills her. Finally it is Sheherazades turn to become the king’s wife. In the evening Sheherazade starts to tell the king stories, and she continues to tell stories for 1001 nights, and in this way she saves her own and other womens life and she is able to change the kings view on women and the world.
”Scheherazade had nothing; only good stories to tell and the ability to tell them well. The lesson is that, if you want to survive, you better have a good story to tell.” (The last storytellers – Richard Hamilton)
In Second life, where everything is possible 4 artists have created installations to honour the imagination of a storyteller. Here you can hear the silence of the sands, enter the darkness of stars, walk on soundless words and stare at a bird trapped in the chest of a human being.
You are so welcome to the opening, or later if you prefer.
The four virtual artists are: Capcat Ragu, Cherry Manga, Giovanna Cerise and Meilo Minotaur.
