LEA24-Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo EXODUS

Dear friends, Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo are very happy to invite you to the event that closes the permanence of their installation "Exodus A Trip For Life" at LEA 24.

A touching text written and read by Duna Gant blends with the suggestive music of Ahnue Heartlight.

We are awaiting you to share together a definitely exciting moment.

Injured hands, lost gaze, broken skins, exhausted lives ...

Fleeing from poverty, misery
Travelling towards hope
and finding despair.
Travelling towards bread
and finding hunger.

Fleeing from fear, war.
Travelling towards light
and finding darkness.
Travelling towards life
and finding death.

Fleeing from fanaticism and hatred.
Travelling to the future
and find nothing.
Travelling towards freedom
and finding our door closed.

Their injured hands, their lost gaze, their broken skins, their exhausted lives ...
And our hands, our eyes, our skins and our empty lives.

                                                Duna Gant
Cari amici, io e Nessuno siamo molto felici di invitarvi all'evento che chiude la permanenza della nostra installazione " Exodus A Trip For Life " a LEA 24.

Un toccante testo, scritto e letto da Duna Gant si fonde alla musica suggestiva di Ahnue Heartlight.

Vi aspettiamo per condividere insieme un momento sicuramente emozionante.

Mani ferite, occhi persi, pelli rotte, vite esauste ...

Fuggire dalla povertà, dalla miseria.
Viaggiare verso la speranza
e trovare la disperazione.
Viaggiare verso il pane
e trovare la fame.

Fuggire dalla paura, dalla guerra.
Viaggiare verso la luce
e trovare l'oscurità.
Viaggiare verso la vita
e trovare la morte.

Fuggire dal fanatismo e dall'odio.
Viaggiare per il futuro
e  trovare niente.
Viaggiare verso la libertà
e trovare la nostra porta chiusa.

Le loro mani ferite, i loro occhi persi, le loro pelli rotte, le loro vite sfinite
e le nostre mani, i nostri occhi, la nostra pelle e le nostre vite vuote.

                                        Duna Gant
Queridos amigos, Nessuno y yo estamos muy feliz de invitarlos al evento que cierra la permanencia de nuestra instalación "Exodus A Trip for Life" en la LEA 24.

Un texto conmovedor escrito y leído por Duna Gant se fuende con la sugerente música de Ahnue Heartlight.

Estamos esperando que compartas junto un momento sin duda emocionante.

Manos heridas, ojos perdidos, pieles rotas, vidas agotadas...

Huir de la pobreza, de la miseria.
Viajar hacia la esperanza
y encontrar desesperación
Viajar hacia el pan
y encontrar hambre.

Huir del miedo, de la guerra.
Viajar hacia la luz
y encontrar oscuridad.
Viajar hacia la vida
y encontrar muerte.

Huir del fanatismo y el odio.
Viajar hacia el futuro
y  encontrar nada.
Viajar hacia la libertad
y encontrar nuestra puerta cerrada.

Sus manos heridas, sus ojos perdidos, sus pieles rotas, sus vidas agotadas
y nuestras manos, nuestros ojos, nuestras pieles y nuestras vidas vacías.

LEA23 - Ilyra Chardin's Faces Closing Reception

FACES by ilyra - Closing Reception
December 17 - 1:00 PM - 3 PM SLT

What lies behind the FACES that we see?  
Have you ever wondered about the person behind the avatar?  
Wondered why they seemed so happy or perhaps why they seemed so bitter or angry?  
This is their story.  

Music by Raven Cinquetti with Gussie Sleeper

LEA9 - The Lull by Starla Metaller

DATES: December 4th through December 31st
ARTIST: Starla Metaller 

 The Lull is the culmination of a three-month land grant from the LEA, where the space is navigated using an avatar as a tool to engage with the works and the space as a whole.

The focus of the work is an installation which comprises particle effects to create the impression of fog and flickering transparent coloured shapes to mimic projections, together with a representation of a projector and beam.  The audio emanates from the centre of a transparent object placed around ‘chest height’ on an average avatar, allowing for a degree of variation in the sound levels, sounding louder close to the centre of the installation, and quieter towards the edges of the space.

The Lull is also a gallery space in which works exploring the use of colour, light and material properties are displayed alongside an studio area showing early versions of objects which were created as part of the development of the installation.

You are invited to discover The Lull – An immersive gallery and installation space – officially open from Monday 4th December until Sunday 31st December.

LEA29 - "Starry Starry Night" by Particle Artist Alyx Heron, Sunday Dec. 3 ~ 1pm SLT.

Sunday Dec. 3 ~ 1pm SLT.

Alyx has been a long time particle creator, artist, and performer in SL.  Alyx says..... "I am in the business of blending together light, space and music to paint the SL world with dreams. They can be fantasies or nightmares, lifting you up in magically sparkling lights or dragging you down into strobes and whirlpools that illustrate dark desires. To keep my work always fresh, I make my own textures and do my own scripting, so that no two shows are ever alike. I perform at many clubs, including The Leonard Cohen Club, Marcel's, Pavlov's Dog and Port of Dreams."

LEA2 Rory Torrance opens ASTEROPOLIS

ASTEROPOLIS:  Alien Architecture and Art by Rory Torrance
An astonishing display of virtuoso primsmanship!

Rory is known for his unusual buildings, made entirely of prims without mesh or sculpties, and exhibiting exotic geometries.   His work is as precise as possible, and always flawlessly textured.
Many of the builds are scripted with doors and windows that open and close at a touch.  Those that don't have stairs are equipped with teleporters.
The default location has teleporters to the other locations.  The show consists of 18 distinctive edifices on land and in the sea and air. 
It also incorporates a retrospective of Rory's favorite sculptural and graphic works.  Some of the sculptures do incorporate mesh or sculpties, but again they  mostly rely on 'prim torture'.
Be sure to visit the Planetarium in the Rhombic Temple, where models of all the 45 worlds of the Solar system (excluding only the non-rounded bodies) and the 9 extra-solar worlds of the Uncommonwealth are on display.
We hope you enjoy your visit to Asteropolis.

LEA14 - Coming in December to The White Cliffs of Dover

Greetings, Cliffwalkers!!

Here's an update on The White Cliffs of Dover!

First, I want to thank everyone who visited this world, making it what it was meant to be!  I've spoken with many visitors and had some very nice conversations, learning even more about Dover and the Cliffs and seeing your perspectives. 

The cliffs will come down at the end of the year but will not go quietly!  I hear there's going to be a huge battle, one where the Brits will prevail! I believe it's called the Battle of Britain!  It's a big one, so it might last across a couple days.  So keep your ears open and maybe think about how you could participate in the battle as civilian or military, and help defend the homeland at the end of the year!

A video of the battles may even be in the works and you would be added to the permanent history of this amazing place!

Second, the cliffs were featured by Designing Worlds.  They did a fabulous job, each host reciting their poem of choice while standing on the cliffs' edges. 

Here's the link if you wish to see it.

But first, there will be Christmas!!
