The collective project "Moving Islands" [Rafts] (about which I wrote here back in October) augments its scope during the month of January with a project entitled In the Belly of the Whale. Curator Eupalinos Ugajin, joined by Ole Etzel, invites visitors to create and submit their own whale story using photography or machinima, with the entered artworks to be shown at whale.boxfolio.com and also inworld at a culminating party at the end of January. The installation has grown since its opening, with the addition of quite a few new rafts, and some additional gifts are now available at the door.
Ole declares, "Explore Moving islands at LEA20. Reflect on the topic 'In the Belly of the Whale'. Reflect harder! Now do us a film, a picture or a photo story at LEA20. Wear [your] own builds or use existing ones from the sim, create a short photo story or a 120 minute epic film, sing, shout or shoot a harpoon into the last whale! Perhaps you may decide to feel like being in any special kind of belly or to produce your work in that special Cadavre Exquis look? Special Russian dictator bellies floating through your mind? NOW you are ready to go! Give us the honor and donate a work to our interactive extravaganza!" Additionally, "Mr. Bones will sing you the art of Machinima" on Saturday, January 11 at 12:00 noon slt.
