Virtlantis sim with an incredible, and much blogged-about build, Transubstantiation. It was a beautiful sight, and showed just what can be done when an artist is allowed to expand an idea to sim-sized proportions.
UWA's JJ Zifanwe is closing the sim for reasons of cost, but with classic Antipodean good humour, rather than doing a lot of hand-wringing about the decision to downsize, he's taken the opportunity to give some of SL's best loved artists the opportunity to make the sim go out with a bang.
Wizzy is calling the build fractal and hyperboloid art. She told me a hyperboloid is a very excited boloid, but I think she was teasing... the pieces on show here are a mixture of newness, like this piece, with an optical illusion at its heart.
Craft. It created a very surprising effect when it was imported.
(Outside SL, you can stretch a regular prim to any size you want, rather than being confined to 10x10x10m)
Wizzy Gynoid: These sort of look like particle effects, but it's really 366 moving prims. It looks a bit like one of those black light posters. The center hole is suggestive of the vesica pisces, and of course that means it has all kinds of feminine connotations
To me, it kind of looked like the Time Tunnel on speed. Drop in and make up your own mind. Wizzy's build will be at Virtlantis the for the whole of the month of May.
