2Lei “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women” .

2Lei is a collaborative project which involves: 2LifePhotos, Free Art, Arts Merkaba, PAD, SL Art, Tanalois, Salim, WDT Planet, CSW Island, The Knot and some groups of Second Life. The aim of the project is to raise awareness and dissemination of events related “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women” .
On November 25, 2010 various digital artists, virtual galleries and cultural figures of SL have been called to share in their own lands and groups belonging to, the common message of solidarity to the woman.

2Lei - The Passion of the women
This is our tribute in 360 degrees to the woman and a sign of solidarity with the women raped, abused, denigrated, enslaved, hated, feared, exploited ... This is our way to be close to all the women who cannot be with us, especially on this day. This is our way to voice their hymn to life because their passion has not ended with a resurrection .. but with their death, deprivation ... their annihilation of the being.

Our hug goes to all those women who have walked with us on this world like human beings accused of non-existent difference, of an uncomfortable particularity, of an inappropriate feeling, of a dangerous enthusiasm …accused of being woman .. to be destroyed rather than be loved.
Being a woman today is to be human! With our virtual bodies, our global consciousness and the immortality that distinguishes us in this perfect world, we want to dedicate a day to the human being.

On the day when the real world come together without boundaries in this complaint, we open the doors of the Metaverse to spread our message of solidarity with women.
This message wants to reach the hearts of human beings through the virtual art, the pride of a parallel society in which creative expression deletes the distances and meet together under a single manifest.
2Lei is an Italian project and it is the example of the cooperation of the residents of Second Life. 2Lei project has brought together artists and gallery owners from around the world for the same cause to dedicate one day in the virtual environment to the Passion of women.
On November 25, 2010 in Second Life come with us and embrace all women in the world!

Established by Resolution No. 54/134 by the UN in 1999 in order to sensitize governments, institutions and civil society. The UN has chosen this day to commemorate the tragic story of the three Mirabal sisters raped, stabbed and strangled Nov. 25, 1960, by order of the dictator Trujillo.

Violence against women
- Over the last decade, to fight violence against women has become a priority in many countries. A study by the Secretary General in 2006 on violence against women has found that at least 89 states had some laws on domestic violence and 60 had specific laws against domestic violence. Marital rape was a crime punishable in at least 104 countries. Ninety-three countries had some rules regarding human trafficking. Ninety states had laws against sexual harassment.
- Despite these advances, violence against women and girls is a global pandemic. The problem continues to be universal, with women and girls victims of violence in every region and every country. Women who have been victims suffer from various health problems and reduced their ability to participate in public life.
- According to a study on domestic violence conducted in 10 countries by the World Health Organization (WHO), a percentage between 15 and 71 percent of women reported to have suffered physical or sexual violence from their husbands or partners.
- Among women aged between 15 and 44, the acts of violence are among the leading causes of death and disability more than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war.
- In 2006, women and girls accounted for 79 percent of the victims of human trafficking.
- More than 60 million girls worldwide are forced into early marriage, before age 18.
- It's estimated that between 100 and 140 million girls and women in the world currently live with the consequences of female genital mutilation, and about 3 million girls are at risk each year.
- Impunity for the perpetrators, inadequate services for victims / survivors, attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate negative stereotypes and violence against women, and a general lack of resources for the implementation of existing measures remain persistent obstacles to prevention and to the eradication of violence against women.

2Lei - La Passione delle donne
Un omaggio alla donna a 360 gradi che vuole essere allo stesso tempo un segno di solidarietà verso le donne violate, maltrattate, denigrate, soggiogate, odiate, temute, sfruttate... un modo per essere vicini a tutte quelle donne che in questo giorno non possono essere con noi a gridare il loro inno alla vita perché la loro passione non si è conclusa con una con la morte, la privazione... l'annientamento dell'essere. Un abbraccio a tutte quelle donne che con noi hanno camminato su questo mondo con passi da esseri umani tacciati di una differenza inesistente, di una particolarità scomoda, di una sensibilità inopportuna, di un entusiasmo pericoloso..di un essere donna da distruggere piuttosto che da amare.
Essere donna oggi è essere umana! Con i nostri corpi virtuali, la nostra coscienza globale e l'immortalità che ci contraddistingue in questo mondo perfetto vogliamo dedicare un giorno all'essere umano.
Nel giorno in cui il mondo reale si riunisce in questa denuncia senza confini, apriamo le porte del Metaverso per diffondere il nostro messaggio di solidarietà alle donne.
Questo messaggio vuole arrivare ai cuori degli esseri umani attraverso l'arte virtuale. Orgoglio di una società parallela in cui l'espressione creativa vanifica le distanze e si riunisce sotto un solo manifesto.
2Lei è l'esempio della collaborazione dei residenti di Second Life che a partire da un progetto italiano ha riunito per la stessa causa artisti e galleristi di tutto il mondo per dedicare anche nell'ambiente virtuale un giorno alla Passione delle donne.
Il 25 novembre 2010 vieni in Second Life ed abbraccia con noi tutte le donne del mondo!

Violenza contro le donne
- Nel corso dell’ultimo decennio, combattere la violenza contro le donne è divenuta una priorità in molti paesi. Uno studio del Segretario Generale del 2006 sulla violenza contro le donne ha rilevato che almeno 89 Stati avevano alcune disposizioni legislative sulla violenza domestica e che 60 avevano specifiche leggi contro la violenza domestica. Lo stupro coniugale era un reato perseguibile in almeno 104 Stati. Novantatre Paesi avevano alcune norme riguardanti il traffico di esseri umani. Novanta Stati avevano leggi contro le molestie sessuali.
- Nonostante questi progressi, la violenza contro donne e ragazze è una pandemia globale. Il problema continua ad essere universale, con donne e ragazze vittime di violenza in ogni regione ed ogni paese. Le donne che hanno subito violenza soffrono di diversi problemi di salute, e di una ridotta abilità di partecipare alla vita pubblica.
- In uno studio sulla violenza domestica condotto su 10 Paesi dall’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità (OMS), una percentuale tra il 15 e il 71 per cento delle donne ha riferito di aver subito violenza fisica o sessuale dal proprio marito o partner.
- Tra le donne di età compresa tra i 15 e i 44, gli atti di violenza sono tra le prime cause di morte e invalidità, più del cancro, della malaria, degli incidenti stradali e della guerra.
- Nel 2006, le donne e le ragazze hanno costituito il 79 per cento delle vittime del traffico di esseri umani.
- Più di 60 milioni di bambine in tutto il mondo sono costrette a matrimoni precoci, prima dei 18 anni.
- E’ stimato che dai 100 ai 140 milioni di ragazze e di donne nel mondo convivono attualmente con le conseguenze delle mutilazioni genitali femminili, e si stima che 3 milioni di ragazze sono a rischio ogni anno.
- L’impunità per i colpevoli, servizi inadeguati per le vittime/sopravvissute, atteggiamenti e comportamenti che perpetuano stereotipi negativi e la violenza contro le donne, e una generale scarsità di risorse per l’attuazione delle misure esistenti restano ostacoli persistenti alla prevenzione e all’eradicazione della violenza contro le donne.

Nicolas Schöffer’s tower

Nicolas Shöffer’s tower
Nicolas Schöffer,
father of Cybernetic Art, an architect, visionary and artist. He is famous for his enlightened way of thinking and for being decades ahead of his own times.
We talk about a cybernetic construction when the system under scrutiny is involved in a closed signal loop, where action by the system in an environment causes some change in the environment itself which change is then transmitted again to the system via feedback. The feedback makes the system to adapt to new conditions. It changes its behaviour in an interactive way. This circular causal relationship is necessary and sufficient for a cybernetic perspective.
Schöffer adapted this cybernetic principle when he realised his spatiodynamic and luminodynamic sculptures consisting of moving and turning modules and mobiles, using light and mirrors to create constantly changing forms and effects. His work opened totally new horizons in art history during the 50s and 60s and inspired many enthusiastic followers. He continued working fervently and elaborating his constructions until his death in 1992 in Paris. His spirit is still living with us, his memory is vivid. His work is displayed in many museums over the world. There are several museums carrying his name and showing exclusively his artworks.
Schöffer’s chief achievement was the Tower of Light that he designed for the city of Paris, where it should have stood in a special surrounding to be seen from far away.
He used mirrors and lights to create the illusion, specially at night, that the tower was floating in the air. Dematerialization of the artwork was one of Schöffer’s main concerns that he wanted to realize by using immaterial media such as light and sound.
Inside the tower all kind of exhibitions, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and shops would entertain the visitor. Rotating floors would give spectacular views and on certain times a lightshow would transform the tower into a performance of its own.
Schöffer prepared a blueprint of his ‘Tour Lumière’, he built several maquettes, he painted and drew the tower many times. He was however too visionary and ways ahead of his times. The tower could not be built at the technical level of his era. It would be though not impossible but still a difficult task even with our much more elaborate and energy saving lighting and controlling technology to build such a huge and complicated tower in real life. Consequently Schöffer’s plan has remained on paper until recently.
Schöffer’s widow, Eléonore de Lavandeyra Schöffer has kept his heritage. She is still working with all her enormous strength to keep Schöffer’s memory alive and vivid by numerous openings and exhibitions showing his work. She has even organised an exhibition on SL with her friends, Àgota and Mária Nagy. She became with her avatar very soon absorbed by the virtual art world. She visited many exhibitions in Second Life. On one of her trips into the virtual world she got to know Velazquez Bonetto and the CARP (Cybernetic ARt Project) team. The work of Velazquez and his team caught Eléonore’s attention at once and she returned several times to follow the development of the ongoing projects. As soon as she realised what Velazquez was capable of, a new dream began to take shape.
Velazquez Bonetto is László Ördögh’s avatar in SL. His artistic activity is an integrated part of a wider carrier. It is nourished by more than thirty years of professional experience gathered in such different fields as industrial design, computer graphics, virtual reality and ergonomics. It has multiple influences on his art. Owing to years in software production he has developed several new techniques that can be roughly classified as mixed media and he is a high-profile creator in virtual artistic scenes.
The acquaintanceship with Eléonore de Lavendeyra Schöffer became more and more friendly and one day Velazquez got a letter from her:
‘Àgota told me that you could be interested in building the TLC on SL. It is a marvellous idea. I thought about it a long time ago. It would be fantastic if it could be done for the 100th anniversary of N.S. birth, and 20th anniversary of his death. 2012.
If you decide to do it, and I agree to the principle, (the modalities would have to be clearly precised together) their previous work could be of some help, and a meeting with you and them should be arranged as a second step. The first one being your trip to Paris, contact me, visit the atelier, and try together to put a wonderful dream into reality.
So, you have to tell me if you can come to Paris one of these days, and when. Propose to me different dates, so that I can find one fitting with my work.
I am very VERY happy with your idea. No one could be able to realize it properly except you. I already thank you.
Eléonore de Lavandeyra Schöffer’
After a short while Velazquez Bonetto, his daughter Caravaggio Bonetto and his wife Mirabella Infinity went to Paris in RL. They spent several days in the atelier and home of Schöffer with Eléonore explaining the tower and Schöffer’s work. After getting the blueprints and taking many pictures they went back home and started to build the Tower.
THE FIRST PRESENTATION OF THE TOWER takes place on Saturday, 9th October 2010 in the framework of the Imagine Festival as a symbol of a new world announced by the famous song of John Lennon. It is a great chance to see it and to make your own experience walking inside in SL, to look around and to feel what it could have been like if it had been built in Paris according to Schöffer’s plans.
The tower has been built on scale 1:1 in Second Life to be as true to the original as it was possible. To build something on scale 1:1 is not usual in SL. In the virtual world everything should be built on a larger scale because the avatars are bigger and taller as normal humans. ( at about 2 meters tall) There is one other major difference to real humans regarding the realisation of vision as well. The eye of an avatar is interpreted as a camera. We would normally think that this camera should be placed on the head where we see the eyes of a human. It is not the case though. The avatar should see himself or herself from behind on the monitor of the PC to enhance their ability of orientation. The camera is placed 3 meters behind the head and a bit higher than the head. It is why the main dimensions of the tower could be kept the same as they were planned by Schöffer but the number of the levels must have been reduced. If the original height of the levels had been kept, than the eyes of the avatars would have been one story higher than the avatar itself. According to the properties of vision in SL some walls must have been opened to secure good camera viewpoints. Staircases could have been eliminated, because the common means of transport is teleport in SL. A staircase would be absolutely obsolete here. Despite of the inevitable modifications the main aim was to be as true to the spirit of Schöffer as it could be possible amidst the technical conditions of SL. It is the spirit of experimenting and stretching the advantages of new technologies to the limits. It is the spirit of development beyond our most daring dreams . It is the spirit of interactions even by using immaterial media.
Three thousand two hundred active scripts and controllers let all the lights, reflectors and particles react to special events and perform a lightshow automatically or on command.
Seats of the audience are going to fly around with built in cameras that offer spectacular views, because the tower is too big to be taken in as a whole by any camera. Elevator seats bring you to the floor you choose. Exhibitions of historic pictures and cybernetic art make the event unforgettable. Great artists have been invited to create elaborated interactive, and scripted sculptures specially for the tower. Josina Burgess has created immersive particles and lots of cybernetic sculptures. Exhibiting artist are:
Dancoyote Antonelli,
Velazquez Bonetto,
Josina Burgess,
Artistide Despres,
Glyph Graves,
Werner Kurosawa,
Merlino Mayo,
Bryn Oh,
shellina Winkler
Igor Ballyhoo
Special performances and shows will be offered for your entertainment.
Schöffer’s dream was to build the tower in Paris in RL. It has been built on a place he could not have dreamt of. It has been built in the virtual world not to be seen from a couple of kilometres away from the spot where it stands, but to be seen from all over the world. It has been built to be a symbol of development, innovation, true spirit of discovery and delight taken in work and wisdom.

lunedì 21 giugno 2010



by Shellina Winkler and Solkide Auer

While creating this installation we thought about a work whose peculiarities should have been colors and lights.
We started from the external panels with a sort of vanishing sensation, which represent the void all around, suddenly, by sitting on the poseballal beneath it, the avatar is completely dipped into an explosion of colors.
We also worked on the possibility of watching it at different times and with different lights. Changing of environement settings will give you the chance of experiencing what we ment to share with visitors both as far as visual effects and emotions..
The basical idea is simple, exactly as the title says, "Colors form the Void". The void is all around and when you sit inside it you are surrounded by colors as a sort of protection from the void.

Virtual Treeline - The Book

Virtual Treeline

A celebration of trees in virtual space

By Juanita Deharo

The book Documents 'Virtual Treeline' which invited artists to participate in an environmental art project in the virtual reality world, Second Life.
Virtual Treeline was part of 'Treeline' which was shown at Sunshine Coast Galleries, Queensland Australia in 2010.
Participating artists came from UK, USA, Chile, Australia, Italy, Canada and Germany.
The book's essay documents the artists' responses to trees as an inspiration for their art works and as a catalyst for thinking about sustainability and environment.
