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.

Nightmares by Asmita Duranjaya at Aakriti

With the exhibition nightmares Asmita shows once more a conceptual installation, which can be perceived as provocative, confusing and distressing. It is an immersive interactive show for all senses, which can be stressed in virtual worlds. The installation follows the tradition of the so called concept art and scripts, sounds, particles, prim- and sculpt-objects are used to express a mental condition associatively in a 3D-arrangement. The opening will take place on Sunday, 27th at 1:30 in Ranadeep's Aakriti Gallery (now shown on Space 4 Art Asmita's tp: Huge Installations:)

In Motion by Asmita

All the pieces, which Asmita has created for the Galeria Mexico have one or more elements in motion. They show the main script palette used to animate virtual artwork in Second Life. The exhibition shows the recent tendency of Asmita Duranjaya's work to work with cyber-elements. According to this topic the visitor will find an avi in the gallery, playing on an electronic musical instrument called Theremin and used to produce a SF-soundscape. The music example is a collage from sounds of the movie Forbidden Planet, whose soundtrack has been produced by Louis and Bebe Barron in 1956. The strange electronical sounds can be accompanied by a slow dance as well.The Opening will be on Sunday 13th of April at 2:30pm SLT:

... there you Haveit ...

... the Roll of the Dice has come to MBK with the outstanding art of the remarkable artist Haveit Neox. Roll of the Dice does not mean the same like the die is cast - no, the artist seems to preserve a spark of hope, that the humans could be able to avoid the desaster of destroying the planet earth by environmental pollution. 
Haveit has changed the ancient market hall, which serves as the MBK Gallery for years, in his unique way to make it a fascinating art experience, consisting of several layers, and immersive in the sense of challenging the visual, intellectual and associative ability of the visitor. This is virtual art in the best and most attractive sense! The opening will take place on 13th of April 2014 at 1pm SLT. Cordial invitation to all serious art enthusiasts in Second Life.

End-Result SkullArtContest

During the sim-party at Space 4 Art on last Sunday the winners of the SkullArtContest have been awarded. Two artists had to share the 1st prize with 1500L each: Samara Furse-Barzane with her socio-critical photo-collage "Genocides" and HOLALA Alter with his animated "SkullArtMuseum". The 2nd prize with 2000L received kayly Iali with her SL-version of the RL-painting "The Skull with Yellow Flower", where she uses the skull in the traditional way as a symbol of "vanitas". 500L each as a shared 3rd prize went to Eifachfilm Vacirca and Fafner Hofmann, who both had created expressive variations of the skull-topic. All participants, who did not win a prize, received 100L for their efforts. The contributions for art contests at Space 4 Art run through a sophisticated voting system with 5 judges and public voting. This guarantees a relative objectivity, but everybody should be aware, that objectivity in judgements on art can never be reached. Nevertheless: congratulations to the winners! The winning pieces are on display until end of the month February 2014 on the rooftop.

Space 4 Art Sim ReOpening 2014


TALES of the FUTURE remains the topic for the art sim Space 4 Art, which has been completely reshaped in January 2014. The old and new landlords Asmita Duranjaya, ChapTer Kronfeld, Louly Loon, Celestine Ghiardie, kjs Yip and Miara Lubitsch have worked intensely to present a new gallery landscape on level 1000 and to construct major art installations on the sim basis. The visitor arrives at the landing spot beside a time machine. From there five arrows guide him to the five land areas, which tell their very own tale of the future, based on a story which forms the framework and can be found under the time machine. Discovering the 5 different futurist, utopic or dystopic art installations leads to a spot, where the guest will get a usefull gift.
The Special Guest at the beginning of the opening party will be JORDAN REYNE, the well-known steampunk singer in RL and SL. She starts her one-hour-program on 9th of February at 11am. The presentation of the art installation including the gift hunt will start at 12am SLT and at 1pm SLT will be the awarding ceremony for the winners of the SkullArtContest. Half an hour later the SF-author Kueperpunk Korhonen will complete the program with the reading of one of his future tales in English. Thanks to pyramidcafetv (Sergej Zarf) the program will be recorded and published.

LEA 25 - A Cooperative SIM - Art - Project

Thanks to an initiative of Secret Rage 17 artists in Second Life got the chance to participate in an interim LEA-project using a full sim for one month to create something expressive. Asmita Duranjaya as one of them got LEA 25 and started a cooperation with German SF-author and ambient composer Michael K. Iwoleit (maikelkay in SL). The outcome of this collaboration will be open for the public from 15th of January and it consists of five immersive visualisations of maikelkay's Ambient Etudes 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7. The sim basis has been shaped as a blueish foreign planet with a dome structure in the center serving as landing point and stage hall with entrance doors to the five interactive projections of the ambient soundscapes in sky spots.


The 1st one, based on Ambient Etude 5, is a tunnel with 37 sound slices, which enable the visitor to hear and recompose the music piece in his own speed and way. It is like a sound jigsaw.


For the 2nd visualisation the visitor has to switch on the video- (media-) button in his viewer. It shows a machinima with the music of Ambient Etude 1 enhanced with some emotional effects.
"Tides of Sound" invites the visitor to a crystal water cave, where he can float on blossom leaves to enjoy the subtle soundscape of Ambient Etude 6 (best viewed in mouse-look).
Carried away to the Floating Spheres, the visitor can enjoy Ambient Etude 7 feeling agravic in space and time surrounded by planets and cosmic orbs.
The music is provided by a browser-link and the view is best in mouse-look.


Last not least the visitor is abducted to the Alien-Sound-World, where he has to fight against the power of a black hole and some alien organisms, who seem not to react friendly in the first moment of contact. People, who are easily scared, should not visit this place.

The two weeks of presentation are highlighted by two live-events:
On January 18th at 2pm SLT Michael K. Iwoleit will read his story "Planck Time" in English and on January 19th at 1pm a live-concert will take place with a new Ambient Etude of maikelkay surrounded with a live-particle show by Asmita.

Cordial invitation to discover and enjoy LEA 25 in January 2014!
