LEA12 OPENING A Watercolour Wander By Ceakay Ballyhoo

By – Linden Endowment for the Arts. Visit LEA12 OPENING A Watercolour Wander By Ceakay Ballyhoo for original post.


The idea of walking into a painting has always been a very attracting and intriguing one. Ever since reading Stephen King’s Rose Madder and later watching Robin Williams in What Dreams May Come, the wish to do something with that concept has been on Ceakey Ballyhoo mind.
Ceakay Ballyhoo (CK for short). 
There is a story that developed with these paintings and it is provided in an NC here as well. It is an extensive read. You can also find the story, with pictures, on the web, which will provide easier reading.
There is also a flickr page for the sim:

It is suggested to read the story before or while you are wandering to have the most immersive experience possible.

You are invited to join us at the grand opening of the installation A Watercolour Wander by CK Ballyhoo.
Thursday 18 August, 1 PM SLT
DJ Fiona Hildrum will be providing the amazing music for this Grand Opening !

In addition to the Fashion Fair we will host a photo contest that will run simultaneously with the event.

New artwork opening December 1st “The Gathering”

Umbrella Girl

The Gathering

 On December 1st I will be opening a new artwork called “The Gathering” on my region Immersiva.

An evening walk
projector room

     The work uses a variety of lighting techniques and material shaders so you will need to follow the directions at the very start.  Essentially, like in most of my recent creations, you will need to put on advanced lighting with shadows with projectors (sun/moon + projectors).    Materials essentially can be seen in the topmost image which is a rainy room.  The “wet” or shiny reflections over the floor and mannequins are created by using layers of textures (diffuse, normals and specular) to create a more textured reactive surface.  Another thing you really should do is accept an invite to allow “Bryn Oh’s experience”.  An experience or experience tools are fairly new for builders and they let you combine a bunch of things that would normally require people to “accept” an interaction to only need to accept at the very beginning.  So for example if you went into a room and I wanted to make your camera move to a painting on a wall, then you would have to accept a dialogue box asking for me to take control of your camera.  You would say ok sure you can take control this time, and then your camera would move to the painting.   Then if you walked down the hall a bit more I might ask to control your camera again.. and again you
would have to accept and so on over and over down the hallway with each painting.  With an experience you essentially give permission at the very start to always accept without needing to be asked repeatedly.  Those dialogue boxes break the immersion in a work so experiences are great for removing those unfortunate barriers to becoming immersed in a virtual narrative or environment.

LEA2 Cinema City Opening by Ataro Asbrink

:::Cinema City built by Ataro Asbrink is a city dedicated to important aspects of cinema and movie making:::JUNE 4TH OPENING PARTY WITH MUSIC AND PARTICLES:: 1PM SLT TORBEN ASP  2PM ZEN ARADO 3PM FEATURING ULTRAVIOLET ALTER ::: JOINING WITH IS PARTICLE TOM :::

  :::Cinema City built by Ataro Asbrink is a city that includes building movie sets (installations..) for movie making, one or more movie theaters and educational facilities :::

 :::Cinema City is built on two floors. On the ground is a kind of cellar or arsenal for the movie installations. On the first floor is the city. It is modern city, where you can watch all the movies which are created using the movie sets / installations in the ground area. These movies are live movies, because they don’t show any recorded material, what you see is here and now. This is done by using the Linden Scripting Language (LSL) for moving the camera. Just sit on a prim or a chair, push ESC, and you’ll see the movie. You can also wear a HUD for watching. Then you can „jump“ into the movie if you like.
In the middle is a plaza with a light fountain. You can use this plaza for: Watching coded live movies, as well as music performances and other things to come. And there’s a cinema where you can watch machinimas. Next to the cinema is the „Learning Lane“ with some visual tutorials concerning basic skills of movie making, which will be developed and expanded. After watching and learning you can visit a café or a bar.
Contributing artists, who built movie sets are: Giovanna Cerise, Lexi Marshdevil, Moewe Winkler, Noke Yuitza, Particle Tom and Ataro Asbrink.
It’s a work in progress, so there will be more and more live movies until the end of July. “Opening June 4th and runs until July 31st 2016.”
                          ” IT’S ABOUT FILM AND FILMING “
