Arts at the Crater & Beyond: Burning Life 2009
Location: Camp of Olivia Hotshot and GeoFrank Taurog
Well, I had a whee of a time with my friends yesterday. This post shamelessly plugs their build at Burning Life, that of their neighbors, and pokes readers with a sharp stick to urge you to "get over there!"
I was pleased to meet their neighbor Bane Riddle whose "The Interactive Mandala" installation stunned me; great reactive art and a fun trampoline ride! [direct teleport link here]. Sorry Bane--when I used your landmark I started on the trampoline...so I moved the landing point back just a few meters!
Bane then sent me to meet another artist whose site he recommended, Lorin Tone. Lorin did sound-work and made the snakes for the Serpentunes interactive art installation [direct teleport link here]. I'll let the visitor figure out how to jump out of the volcano where you appear.
Here's a run-down of events at Olivia's and GeoFrank's camp [direct teleport to it here]:
