the true artist tries to save the world by slowing down time

performance for the The End of the World at Odyssey, 21.12.12, 1pm SLT. 

in a virtual world, such as Second Life, creating things causes server load. Such load can lead to considerable time lag, or time dilation, affecting every movement inworld. in her performance, selavy oh will try to create as much as possible to slow down time.
if she succeeds, then the flow of time will stop and the end of the world will never come.

wish her luck.

silence, please

site-specific installation for the UWA Centenary 3D Art Challenge. the work is completely invisible unless visitor communicate via Second Life chat. then, the typed text will appear as vertical column of letters, each 1m in height, above the speaker. since the main limitation for an entry to the show was the 110-prim limit, "silence, please" generates maximally 110 letters including blanks, which is pretty close to the twitter limit. as soon as the limit is reached, the letters fall down on the visitors and subsequently vanish.
unfortunately, the original version of the work, which affected visitors all over the exhibition, was not accepted and a modification was requested that restricted the range to a radius of 20m. the argument of the organizers was that the work was 'intrusive' and 'unfair to the other artists'.

conformational change

installation for Per4mance MetaLES ..O.. curated by Ux Hax 
opening june 10th 2012 1:00pm SLT at MetaLES
1000 white battens form either one single cube, the initial conformation, or four cubes, the second conformation. visitors flying through the cubes cause the battens to change their position. five cubes are visible while the transition is incomplete. see also quan lavender's blog , the echtvirtuell blog in german language, and machinima by with actor. ux made a great machinima including the final dissolution of the installation.

"transformation" was an event at LEA24 (see also der schauer). during the transformation, which took about 3 hours, the whole area was covered by three independent threads made out of prims, which traced the flight trajectories of three floating cubes. the resulting structure is a dense nest-like accumulation of interconnected prims surrounding the center of the sim. use the official Second Life® viewer with shadows enabled to experience the local lighting. the show is open until mid-march. featured event in SL's destinations.
