Asmita's Fractosphere at Anéli's Maison

... will be the last exhibition of Asmita Duranjaya for a certain period or generally. 
The artist, working since 7 years in the virtual world, has played with 3d-fractals, applied them on sculpts, designing a surrealist landscape to walk through immersively.
Why will it be the last exhibition? The artist, who did also care for other fellow artists a lot, says, as much as she has loved Second Life so far as a medium of artistic expression, so much she hates it now due to the acts of psychopathic persons, for whom SL is a wide, unlimited and uncontrolled field of making it a hell for others, a world of betray, emotional violence and abuse, bringing people to the borders of suicidal actions. Though a lot of friends tried to help her to process some traumatic incidents, the post-traumatic disturbance is still strong enough to see the avoidance of being inworld as the only solution.

Due to Owl Braveheart's invitation the two Space 4 Art landlord-artists share the exhibition area in an art gallery-building for the Fine Arts Tour 2014. ChapTer's art installation fills two rooms and the title "Lügenwaffen" refers to the recent gaza-conflict.
Asmita Duranjaya has played with snail-fractals and presents an exhibition with the topic "Worlds in SnailShells", smaller and bigger 3-D-pieces, one enclosing a "real" avatar. 

Cordial invitation to have a look at these exhibitions!

NEW ARTsim has been founded

in connection with the longtime existing sim Space 4 Art (ChapTer Kronfeld, kjs Yip/Miara Lubitsch, Louly Loon and Asmita Duranjaya). The concept of Space 4 Art consists of 3 elements:
- using the sim basis for bigger conceptual art installations:
- using level 1000 as gallery area for the landlord-artists and for artists in residence;
- building workshops and private areas above level 2000.
The concept is now shared by a powerful international artist-team, who is also interested in sharing the capacity of 2 sims for events and performances. In the long term all expect a synergy-effect of a strong art-community.
To the recent art-community belong 
- Sisi Biedermann (Denmark), who has shifted her Gualdo-Art-Center to the new sim;
- Carabella Babii (UK);
- Lusus Saule (Spain);
- kayly Iali (USA);
- ChapTer Kronfeld (Germany);
- Asmita Duranjaya building 8 cyber-art-studios on level 1000, who can be rented by artists in residence, whose work refers to the term "cyber". 
The 1st event in order to sponsor the arts, artists and the opening-celebration for the new and old sim is an art auction, organized by Asmita Duranjaya and starting on 15th of August at 1pm SLT. Each of the 25 artists, who reside on the 2 sims in the moment have contributed one exclusive piece of art, which has never been shown before in Second Life and which can be purchased by auction until 15th of September. The 3 best placed artists with the highest biddings will be awarded by sharing 30% of the profit in the whole auction. The auction place is the TopGallery at Space 4 Art.The final opening event with performances, exhibitions, lectures and readings will be in September, after finishing the main building activities.

Space 4 Art: Going Cyber

Going Cyber is the title of the recent ARThabitat-exhibition by Asmita Duranjaya. The term CyberArt will play a major role in the next time at Space 4 Art, because there is a lack of definition, what cyber art really means. Asmita tries to define the term for herself and shows a variety of pieces, which could label this term in her eyes. Comments are welcome.
