Art Installation by Myra Wildmist

Myra Wildmist is a very talented photographer in Second Life that often uses projectors and light in her work. She currently has an art installation at the University of Western Australia (UWA) Exhibition. Myra’s installation is called “Dancer” and she has used projectors to give it an interesting perspective.

When you teleport to her installation, you will see a ball in the middle of cylinders. You sit on that ball and you will see yourself rotating and dancing in ballet poses from Nantra Poses. While you rotate, you will see your shadow being projected behind you on the cylinders by the use of projectors. In order to see this properly you need to have your “Advanced Lighting Model enabled, set shadows to Sun/Moon + Projectors and Avatar Shadows to complex in the graphics tab under preferences. Finally, you set your windlight to Phototools – No Light (available in the Firestorm viewer) and you will get the full effect.

I did all of this and made a video, which you can watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ireUsGpEC88

I love these kinds of art installations that are not only beautiful to look at but very interactive and get us involved. It was a lot of fun playing with it and making a video. Teleport over to Myra’s Dancer installation now and try it out for yourself!

Bibi

Catwa Bibi Mesh Head

On July 19th Catwa released the Bibi head, which is a basic mesh head and costs L$900. Any additional add-ons such as animations and blinking cost extra, you can check the price chart on Catwa’s flickr for all the details.

It took me a while to warm up to this head because it has a bit of a cuter more babyish face, which I’m not used to. But once Glam Affair released her Lilo applier for this head, I started to like it a lot. It was so adorable that I couldn’t resist wearing it. I made a video and showed it in 9 different skins so you can get a feel for what it looks like in a variety of skins.

Here are the skins I used in the video:
> Glam Affair Lilo
> L’Etre Megan
> Insol Marcela
> DeetaleZ Paula
> Leforme Milena
> YSYS Bambi
> Modish Nata
> Amara Beauty Sandra
> Bold & Beauty Liu

Bibi is available at the Catwa Mainstore and the Second Life marketplace.

    Thank you, again. Please be sure to wander around UWA and look at the other works by some of SL’s wonderful artists.

    Oh yay, you went over and played with the installation! I think Myra did such a wonderful piece, so interactive and fun!

  4. Wow. I just realized how often I said, “Thank you.” :D

  5. Myra did a great job and I thoroughly enjoyed myself there before it was officially up. It is amazing how long you can spend playing with it as suggested and then if you start trying out different Windlights you get a whole other experience. It is a great place to play and get some really nice snapshots at the same time.

  6. Hey Strawberry Singh,

    Nice blog and post about the installation. There are so many talented SL users.
