27 sept.>5 oct.: Meta.Live.Nu @ Burning Life 2008s,

Meta.Live.Nu was selected by the Burning Life organisation to get land access in order to be present at Burning Life 2008.  On show is the experimental ‘information-art’ installation by Ze Moo:

“Grid Gypsy Camp: Brazil”

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Burning%20Life%20(Tigris)/222/222/22

This cross-reality, information-art installation is our reply to this years Burning Man / Burning Life theme “The American Dream”. It is partly inspired by the Burning Man festival, partly inspired by the Terry Gilliam movie Brazil’ (1984), and partly inspired by the article Avatars consume as much electricity as Brazilians” by Nicholas Carr. Other inspirations into this interactive mixed media art piece come from various real global social, political and enviromental issues.

Next to this, Meta.Live.Nu at BL 2008 will also present some sculptures by invited artist Herman Bergson.

Meta.Live.Nu special thanks: Tooter Claxton, Arcadia Asylum, Cel Edman, Amanda Dench, Talia Tokugawa, Talen Morgan, Luv Ock, Jamal Mfume, Ryan Linden, DFM RTV INT, De Balie Media, Freeteam, DDS,

25 feb.: EFA First Fusion fashion show [update]

A live parallel worlds experiment: A fashion show in the metaverse Second Life and probably for the first time simultaneously a simular fashion show physically on the streets.

UPDATE:

  • VIDEO ( .wmv) and text report (NLs) by At5 Nieuws  – This is the Amsterdam television Lunch News report. The evening news had a shorter report but with a bit of SL video included. This last one is not online unfortunatly.
