Virtual Treeline - a Second Life Showcase Project by Juanita Deharo



With the subtitle "people, art, science, nature" the treeline logo introduces a crossover project between RL and SL. Juanita Deharo, Australian artist and leader of the virtual treeline project explains: "Virtual Treeline is part of a larger real world Treeline project that aims to raise awareness of local and global environmental issues and encourage action through art.
It's main focus is Second Life, but the project is about bringing this virtual world and its possibilities to a broader audience, especially as an educative tool for schools and public programmes in art galleries and libraries, so it will also rely on other internet based presences and the production of videos to cross the boundaries from the virtual world into the real.
We are interested in showing artworks, performances, science projects and any builds that relate to the Treeline project. They will have exposure not only in Second life, but in the real world and on our internet sites."
The opening on 15th of December 2009 (last year!) showed the care- and tastefully designed gallery by Juanita and nearly all the contributing artists came together to celebrate the start of the virtual project:
RAG Randt, Alizarin Goldflake, soror Nishi, Fuschia Nightfire, Sheba Blitz, Bocan Undercrof, Asmita Duranjaya ... http://virtualtreeline.blogspot.com/2009_12_01_archive.html.
