White Frost Beauty

Portraits and landscapes in this interstellART-exhibition look like covered by white frost and show the beauty of winter-time, surely a bit alienated like on another planet, but frosty like on earth...

A Frenchman In New York

... is the title of another awesome photo-exhibition by French writer, blogger and photographer Frantz Catteneo (Francois Roland). It is the first exhibition on the newly found and founded art-sim interstellART: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Borneo%20Atoll/163/163/21 and it shows a brilliant, empathic, sometimes humorous collection of photos taken during the artists's visits to New York in the last years. 


Frantz Catteneo's concept includes to provide every picture with a suitable piece of music, that can be heard by clicking the photo. During the vernissage all the songs will be played by DJane Ginniji on a live-stream. 
The new sim has a futuristic environment and several galleries with changing exhibitions on the sim-basis (Fractopolis) and on level 1000; recent artist-inhabitants are Asmita Duranjaya, Frantz Catteneo, Mason Woller, Merit Coba, Barret Darkfold, lalie Sorbet, Ohe54 and Claude Belgar.


Interested artists can contact Asmita Duranjaya.

Virtual Beauties in CyberSpace



The exhibition "Virtual Beauties in CyberSpace" is a cooperative project of German artist Asmita Duranjaya and French photographer Frantz Catteneo. In the focus of the project is the term "CYBER" and Asmita's affinity to cyber-fashion; the passionate photographer Frantz created collages of the cyber-dressed models in a surreal sci-fi-world, some dystopic, some utopic. Asmita's idea was, to show the variety of cyber-fashion and the fun she had with mixing parts of several brands. Frantz intended to accentuate the sensuality of female cyber-models in his collages, often in opposition to an inhospitable environment. As an additional highlight, he has chosen suitable pieces of music for every picture, which can be heard by clicking on the artwork and opening the specific webpage.

The show is free and non-commercial; tips are welcome. The stylecards of the three models are available in the free gift artwork at the entrance of the gallery on the sim basis and on this notecard.

Model Larita will guide the guests through the show, whilst model Venus will work as a DJane. Artist and model Asmita Duranjaya as well as Frantz Catteneo can be contacted for further questions.

Enjoy the exhibition and join the opening on October 2nd at 1pm SLT with a live concert by German SF-author and ambient-musician maikelkay (aka M. K. Iwoleit in RL).

Elle Thorkveld - MBK Gallery

"Random Assets" is the title of the exhibition by Elle Thorkveld, who classifies herself as a generative artist. That means her artistic creations are produced by a software, which has been prepared and instructed by the artist up to a certain degree. The result is un-intentional and randomly, a kind of cooperation between the software and the artist. The pieces in the MBK Gallery shown by Elle are partly animated and focus mostly on one specific shape and a carefully chosen color-palette. The show will be on display until end of August 2016: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Meisterbastler/46/170/33 .

ArtAuction for Relay for Life

Based on haiku-poetry by Japanese poet Matsuo Basho Samara Barzane (Kyoko) has invited some artists to contribute entries for an art auction. The donated Lindens go to the American Cancer Society (Relay for Life) and artists can win something at the end. Asmita Duranjaya has created two entries on 3D-basis and you can vote for them by giving a small donation at:
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Locus%20Amoenus/129/180/26 .



Asmita explains her work: "In "Haiku by Matsuo Basho" I try to use virtual options, but in regard to the Japanese tradition of visualizing an impression of the nature described in the poem." The visitor will get a plum-blossom as a gift and can sniff its scent.


"In "A Weathered Skeleton" I build a bridge from this old poem to recent incidents on the path of refuges coming from war zones, looking for shelter and finding death instead of." The artwork allows the visitor to be immersively integrated with a pray gesture.


"I try to develop my virtual multimedia style since 2009 and have participated in and organized a lot of exhibitions contests and art events. 3 times I could enjoy a LEA grant and in my work I try to use all the features, which virtual worlds offer for artists and which make virtual art different from RL art."
