Flash Fiction Island will be a public art space in Second Life where Artists, Writers, and Interested Public can interact, explore virtual creativity, and collaborate on projects.
The SLEA organizers seem headed for a capitalist definition of art as the production of objects. I encourage you to submit proposals that focus not on object production but on process, experience, community, and co-creation.
In a brilliant initiative, Tansee and Hannington Xeltentat have collaborated with Linden Lab to create the Second Life Endowment for the Arts (SLEA). Here are 2 suggestions to make it as useful for our community as possible.

I’ve launched a new Flickr Group to collect those “screen_last” images your Second Life viewer saves when you logout. Please add your pix!
Peeps began rezzing selfies. Lazy peeps like me rezzed simple cubes. Overachievers created small shrines. Everyone shared the love.
Take a selfie. Print “I Love You” on it. Rez a prim @Love Beach @LEA1. Put your photo on your prim.
CAA Phase 2 has exploded onto LEA1! It is SO pretty! But is it livable? Is it truly walkable? And if it isn’t, what would be?
In the first minutes of MU CAA-VUP, Olive erects a bold curtain wall, saying goodbye to the neighbors, and casting our College lot more clearly with ourselves. Welcome 2 Phase II.
We’re ending a very successful CAA Phase I, and encouraging you to think about Livable Spaces in Phase II. Think about Architectural form that functions to meet avatar needs. Think about urban space that promotes community and interaction.
Chris Craft’s been stretching the limits of architecture on a small sandbar on the north shore of LEA1. Meanwhile, Cake designed a font!
The Von Tsuki’s, Count & Callie, have been doing some cool explorations in the mountain gorge in the North-East corner of LEA1. Also Klaus goes boating and Sun Cat explores Ableism.
Convocation & Avatar Pride Parade are coming this Saturday. Meanwhile ETS cams the neighbors. And the LEA1 Space Race continues!
New work. New peeps. And a place to relax.

Avatar Challenge: make a diptych juxtaposing an Avatar Selfie with some RL image that you find resonates with it.
Hello, I’m on VR sabbatical. I summoned all my strength and actually picked up my phone and took some selfies. Enjoy.
Reality is perception. Emotion is projection. We over anthropomorphize everything. And maybe we should.
A new service for discriminating collectors, Avatar Editions offers select prints from well-known avatar artists.
Periscope is a toxic platform for women. Platforms like Riot Games’ League of Legends have shown it doesn’t have to be that way.
After “Boobs” & “Open”, “Block” is probably the 3rd most common word on Periscope. Here’s “block” in every language.
Streaming mobile video app Periscope is letting a new generation of hair stylists present their work & skills to a new and crazy wide audience!
On Periscope the strange command “Open Boobs” is almost a mantra. Do women actually take their tops off on Periscope? Is there a more human way to communicate?
When Bree Olson streams live, and her audience “taps for hearts,” they create real value and real money. They are the value, not a few lines of Periscope’s code.
Today “Killer Aps” aren’t software that make hardware go, but People who make platforms go. And Bree Olson is the killer app of Periscope.
Weddings are big-budget productions with rich casts, spectacular wardrobe & complex choreography. Are they performance art?
It’s easy to express the negative aspects of religion, but what about the positive, life-affirming aspects of atheism?
