LEA10 by Bufera Resident
***************************************************************************************************************************** The LEA is pleased to announce the twelfth round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full 
sim for six months on which to create and display their proposed projects:

     nanki Hendes(Cassie Parker)      JenniferMay Carlucci      Duna Gant      NaTaS Janus      Thickbrick Sleaford      Nibby Riddler      Venus Adored      FreeWee Ling      Gem PREIZ      Betty Tureaud      Jo Willimas      Mario2 Helstein      Methias Kira      Noke Yuitza      Frankx Lefavre      Sniper Siemens      Solkide Auer      Artistik Oluja      Art Eames      Norton Lykin    
 The LEA received 35+ high-quality applications, and it was a difficult decision, but those selected submitted outstanding proposals that represent a diverse range of virtual art. While some may be artists returning for a second round, the majority will be exhibiting at the LEA for the first time. Projects range from full-sim immersions, to innovative builds geared specifically for multimedia works such as sound and machinima projects.

Artists will have up to four months to build their projects, with all exhibits set to be open by end of April. Many will likely open sooner, though, so keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous eleven rounds of LEA land grant artists-in-residence have resulted in some truly exceptional works, and we anticipate this next group to be just as fantastic. Congratulations to all the artists, we can’t wait to see your vision!

Everyone is welcome to attend, and all participants will witness such amazing scenes as:

Molly Meets the Unicorn
Transforming to Lady Amalthea- What Have I Done?

Our dancers have worked hard to ensure you'll be amazed, so we ask that you take the time to lower your scripts, and wear an avatar with lower-level complexity. Read more about how to do this, and avatar-imposters here:

LEA6 features the Art of Lilia Artis

LEA Blogspot 'Blog - Fri, 12/09/2016 - 10:28
“The Cruelty of Peace”, an exhibit by Lilia Artis on LEA 6
Opening Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 1 pm SLT

About the installation, Lilia says, "War just never seems to end. It turned into a background noise while we are having breakfast or dinner and live our everyday lives. The news shows there seems to be no limit to the cruelty of what human beings do to other human beings, to men, women, children. And then there is the ongoing destruction of our environment. Hearing about ever growing pollution, a question rises in my head: what is the reality of peace? Is it only possible when the human race becomes extinct?"

LEA20 -- Invitation to The Surreal Cube December 8th at 1pm SLT

LEA Blogspot 'Blog - Tue, 12/06/2016 - 00:19

We celebrate the closing of IN THE GREEN - an art installation by Norton Lykin inside the Surreal Cube

The program:

WAITING FOR ART, a theatrical 42 minutes long play by Art BlueTHURSDAY, DECEMBER, 8, 2016, starting 1:00 PM SLT *)
1:50 PM - INSIDE GREEN, a particle performance in a cube by Venus Adored – first performed at the Grand Opening of IN THE GREEN
2:00 PM SLT - LIVE CONCERT - inside IN THE GREEN – by Ultraviolet Alter
*) Art Blue will hand over the INFINITE CUBE as a Christmas present to attending visitors during the play (copy, mod, no-trans).

About the play

After WAITING FOR GODOT - performed some weeks ago - which was indeed a WAITING FOR GREEN we will have another theatrical event today written by Art Blue: WAITING FOR ART

The play, which can be also seen as an Art Talk, was inspired by a constant annoyance not only I had to read that curators are not artists, that builders are not artists, that scripters are not artists, that particle makers are not artists … and   ...
... "being a toilet cleaner in a RL museum you are in SL qualified to be a gallery owner and to know who is an artist and who not.”

We will get the ultimate insight of what ART IS – and there will be proof.

Put all your plans aside and be at the Surreal Cube at LEA20 at least TEN MINUTES BEFORE 1:00 PM SLT as the program starts with a pre-opener by invisible art artist Lana Newstrom from New York.

Host is JulietteSurrealDreaming

LEA24 to host Storm Eye

LEA Blogspot 'Blog - Mon, 12/05/2016 - 06:20
Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield are currently recreating their immersive environment, Storm Eye,
(in which you'll experience all the fun of a thunderstorm without any of the soggy inconvenience of actually getting wet) on LEA24.

But just in case you are not quite sure...Bryn Oh has donated an umbrella you may pick up from the dispenser located on the sim.

The installation will run until December 31 on the ground level, with Lemonodo Oh's David and Goliath continuing to run at the 272 m altitude.

Just a reminder- all the Artist in Residence sims will be changing over to the Round 12 awardees on January 1st, so please be sure to visit them if you haven't already! 

LEA27 -- Evre presents Dean Radin, PhD, "Magic" - Sunday Dec 4th at 12 noon SLT

       S u n d a y    D e c e m b e r  4, 2016 at 12 noon SLT               
     the one and only              D E A N   R A D I N, Ph.D.                    at the E V R E Events Venue
          PRESENTATION:           "M A G I C"                             http://www.deanradin.com/NewWeb/bio.html
Yes, Dr. Dean Radin is coming to EVRE in person (avatar), just to speak with you all!  The purpose of EVRE has been to spread the word and encourage experiencing the possibilities with aspects of time, our existence, the paranormal, parapsychology and consciousness that we don't yet understand and the new things we are learning!  But it may just well be Dean's life passion.  Dean is Dean and Chief Scientist at IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences) which was founded by American astronaut Edgar Mitchell who walked on the moon.  What a true honor to have him as our guest on EVRE!!  I think you will be overjoyed and magically impressed!  He is such a pleasant person and an outstanding speaker - he makes it easy to understand the science aspect of what is changing our future!
You may have seen Dean in many of the videos in EVRE's Psi Pavilion, but now you can listen to him live and interact! I strongly recommend you watch this video and come armed with a really, really good question! ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6OKfVQSccs ) Below is a brief description of his presentation and further event info below that.  Please help me welcome Dean with open arms and open mind.

                                                                         M A G I C                                                                    by Dean Radin
                                                      REAL magic, not tricks or illusions -- is believed by most people in modern times to be little more than ancient superstitions. It is suitable for entertainment, but that's all. That belief turns out to be wrong. Modern science began as magic and many scientific disciplines today are directly traceable to their magical origins. But one key area of magic, by far the most important, remains hidden. Dr. Radin will explain what this key is, why it is hidden, how to use it, and why you may not want to.
Dean Radin, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and Professor of Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. His first career as a concert violinist shifted into science after earning a BSEE degree in electrical engineering, magna cum laude with honors in physics, from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and then an MS in electrical engineering and a PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. For over three decades he has been engaged in research on the frontiers of consciousness. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001, he held appointments at AT&T Bell Labs, GTE Labs, Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, University of Nevada, and SRI International.
He is author or coauthor of over 200 articles, three dozen book chapters, and three popular books including the bestselling The Conscious Universe (1997), Entangled Minds (2006), and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award, Supernormal (2013). These books have been translated into a dozen languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Latvian and Russian.

LEA10 Ephemeral "Lucio"

LEA Blogspot 'Blog - Thu, 12/01/2016 - 13:26
                                                                     " Lucio, Dalla sua Parola"
 Not only a tribute to a great artist, but a reminiscence of his spirit, evoked by his own words, by his own philosophy, from his own life.
In the stripped-down, intimate atmosphere that can only be created by such a distinctive pairing of piano and voice, you will experience a collection of Lucia Dalla’s most intense songs, thoughtfully selected and presented by an artist who knew him and admired him, for both his artistry and humanity.
Pascal Basile; composer, arranger and music producer, aims to reveal another side of Lucio Dalla in this show, that will enrapture our guests. With this in mind, a sequence of songs including "Milano", "Tango", "Mambo", "Il parco della luna", intertwined with the real voice of Lucio Dalla, offers us a glimpse into his captivating mind.

LEA11 - Fennet's Lost Kingdom of Petra is officially open

LEA Blogspot 'Blog - Thu, 11/03/2016 - 16:14

The Lost Kingdom of Petra has finally emerged from the mists of time and is officially open to the public.

Come marvel at the splendor of Al Khazneh, the magnificent treasury, carved from the red rock cliffs.
Aspiring senators and other orators can practice their craft on the podium facing Petra's amphitheater. (It's recommended that you bring your own audience, however; the desert is generally deserted.)

Use caution while exploring the ruins; seismic events have weakened the stone and many structures are prone to collapse. You may also encounter poisonous reptiles and other dangerous animals.
Be prepared!

Don't forget your swimsuit! Petra was built on an extensive reservoir system that  remains intact today, (at least in the virtual world). I suggest you pick up a free AT Swimmer on the MP before you visit, to enable you to swim in Petra's sparkling prim water.

And make sure to bring your soulmate along; the desert has innumerable settings guaranteed to inspire a bit of romance and barefoot dancing beneath the stars.
