S.O.S. Survivors of Suicide Group, Schoomere - Second Life

S.O.S.  Survivors of Suicide Group, Schoomere - Second Life | Art & Culture in Second Life - art Exhibitions, Literature, Groups & more | Scoop.it

I was recently invited by one of the staff of Survivors of Suicide, Sebastien Bouevier, to drop by their location at the Schoomere sim and hear him tell about the group. Sebastien described the purpose of the group as, "to spread awareness and help prevent suicide, but we also serve as a peer support group, helping our members though the good and the bad times." When I asked who founded the group and when, he answered, "Krissy Sinclair, our founder, started the group over six years ago. I've been running the group for two years now." When I asked what inspired Krissy to start the group, he answered, "Im not 100% sure, but at that time there wasn't any active support groups for mental health in Second Life.

Currently the Survivors of Suicide meets on Wednesdays at 4pm SLT, and Mondays at Noon SLT

The Argument in Second Life

The Argument in Second Life | Art & Culture in Second Life - art Exhibitions, Literature, Groups & more | Scoop.it

Opening on Tuesday, November 28th 2017 is The Argument, a collaborative exhibition featuring eighteen artists, taking place at Serena Imagine Arts Centre (the exhibition space is south of the landing point across the water). “It is the second competition I have run,” the centre’s curator, Vita Theas, informed me. “Its a way for me to give a little prize to the artists, to thank them for letting me share their art with visitors here. The theme is about how many unjust things are in the world today, and how many feelings of hostility are festering among our global neighbours.”

Dissected Soul by Theda Tammas at Split Screen LEA 15 - Second life

Dissected Soul by Theda Tammas at Split Screen LEA 15 - Second life | Art & Culture in Second Life - art Exhibitions, Literature, Groups & more | Scoop.it

This is a cool build with sculptures that are somewhat shredded by the barbed wires of life or so it seems.  I think it's about identity issues but go and figure it out for yourself as it's fun to look at this large immersive build of figures wound in red lines/barely holding things together or maybe tangling things up.  Some figures are walking the fine line or are connected by just a bit of the red thread or maybe its a red string of  a heart piece that connects them or holds them keeping them from totally getting lost.  There is what my be a totally fractured heart in the middle and there is a figure holding up a mask .. seems to wont for more discussion of trials and tribulations one may encounter in life that tears them almost to pieces.

“Vision for Education in Virtual Worlds” by Enrique Cachafeiro. Education in Virtual Worlds has seemed to stall as of late. The promise of virtual reality as a means of revolutionizing education has halted at novelty. What will it take to legitimize and penetrate the technology into the field of education? Here is one design, one roadmap for disrupting the paradigm using what is still the most powerful tool for education – virtual worlds.

 Gem Preiz’ Chaos at The Eye Art Gallery, Cape Paradise, Second life

 Gem Preiz’ Chaos at The Eye Art Gallery, Cape Paradise, Second life | Art & Culture in Second Life - art Exhibitions, Literature, Groups & more | Scoop.it

I discovered Gem Preiz’ art this year and wrote about it in this blog. I saw “No Frontiers” and I saw his exhibtion “5 years of Fractals“. A few days ago I got an invitation from Gem Preiz to visit his latest exhibition called “Chaos” at “The Eye Art Gallery“. Considering that Gem uses fractals for creating his Pictures, “Chaos” seems to be the opposite of what is underlying his art. Gem wrote an introduction to his exhibition “Chaos” that describes perfectly what he does and what it expresses:

“Voyager and Cassini - Where No One Has Gone Before!”
          
By Phil Youngblood Ph.D


Reality begins with a vision. Over 50 years ago, a NASA JPL scientist realized that a rare alignment of planets to take place years in the future could be exploited by a spacecraft using Jupiter’s gravity to slingshot itself to the outer planets and beyond. That vision led to the Pioneer, Voyager, Cassini, and New Horizons missions that left us spellbound with wonder as these craft gave us a closeup view of the worlds that are our neighbors. Join me this Saturday for a personal journey from our ‘pale blue dot’ to the outer reaches of our solar system, a journey that continues to go where no one has gone before!
