Inspired Creativity is going to SL10B

Late on the night of May 24th, I received an email informing me that my exhibit design had been accepted for the Second Life Birthday Celebration (SL10B). We were very happy to have our exhibit proposal accepted and to be a part of such a great event. There is much work to do between now and them.The basic structure has been placed on the SL10B Magnificent sim.  There are still many textures to make, details to add and a script to write to make it all work. When it is finished, it will stand as a towering monument to the content creators and the foundations on which Sceond Life stands.

Resident Input Required

The exhibit is called Resident Input Required. Second Life was built upon the work of many residents. While Linden Lab supplies the infrastructure, it is the residents that make Second Life what it is. This exhibit shows how resident input is important to keeping Second Life vibrant.  At the base is a single button, when a resident pushes the button the whole exihbit lights up. If the button is not pushed for a certain period of time then the exhibit goes dark.

There will be muich more about our exhibit as SL10B draws closer, but now it is time to get back to work.

Coming Soon: A New Gallery and Studio

Several months ago, I announced the launch of Inspired Creativity Studio. Since then, a combination of Real Life and Second Life issues and distractions have kept me from working much on making an inworld presence for a gallery and studio. That changed last month when I opened a small storefront gallery on Sage Isle. The space was rather small and was limited to 50 prims. It was very limiting. I could put my artworks on display, but there was no room for other artists, a studio, or to hold large events.

That has now changed. Sage Isle is undergoing a massive makeover. As a part of that makeover, I have been provided with a huge building and a large number of prims to use for my gallery and studio. The ground floor is over 3,000 square meters (over 32,000 square feet).It will be able to hold 2 or more exhibits at once.  I am talking with a couple of artists about showing their works in the gallery.

Besides art exhibits, this space is large enough for me yo hold events. Currently, I am planning to hold weekly events here from 7-9 PM SLT on Monday nights with DJs David and Luvs.

I am adding a mezzanine that will hold my studio and a public creative space. The public space will hold some props that the public can use to take their own pictures. There will be a monthly contest for pictures taken in this space. Stay tuned for more information about that.

Overall, things are starting to move quickly. After months of inactivity, there is a new life to this business.

Stay Inspired,
