Today I am very happy to announce an exhibition in Crimarzon, opening next Saturday. The exhibition shows wonderful art works from Kyynne Llewellyn and Paola Mills, both alredy well known artists in Second Life :) In the follwing I would like to introduce both of them and their exhibition. A special thank you goes to Tania Tebaldi, who translated the italian part from Paola Mills for me and this post ;)

A few words about myself and my SL artwork.
It is very simple really ….   I love taking pictures.  I take pics irl, underwater photography is another hobby, and I do the same in SL.

For me its relaxing to be working in photoshop and create things.
There is not very often a deeper meaning to my pics. Usually I just take ‘m for fun, but I do like to think that each of them tells a little story.   That explains why I love all ‘fantasy’ stuff so much.
Dolls and Demons, that sums it up pretty well and that also became the name for the blog that Alles Klaar and I have started a few months back.

For this exhibition, I choose the ‘doll’ theme.  Again. I love Cocoro Lemon’s mesh doll avi’s so much, I just can’t get enough.  There are always new adventures for Dolly.
Since last weekend there is a new doll avi at Coco, with the same attachment points as a regular avi.  This enables the doll to wear regular mesh clothing.  Not everything, she has still this pearshaped body like a childs, but there are so much more possibilties now.

Hello I’m Angela Paola and in pixel version I’m Paola Mills
I signed up to Second life in 2007, after hearing a lot of Linden Lab in the media, I did not like the name Second Life, but its potential as a platform to use, because I am passionate about video games since I was a girl. Reading an article in the American Journal, I realized that Second Life was something else, it is a place used to pleasure doing business, others see it as financial speculation, for other people it’s just a 3D chat. But soon it became a niche for lovers of creativity.

I’m not a professional photographer in RL but I like to take pictures when I see something I like, a person or a situation, which is why I always carry a small camera in my bag. Only Second Life has allowed me to develop without the need for powerful means my emotionalism, take the moment of one feeling into simple shots that stop a moment of my time.

Unlike many artists in the metaverse I work in handicraft way my snapshots using the minimum graphics editing software not by choice but by inability to use them, I brake considerably the result of my photos, I know that I am not an expert photographer maybe if I had more time I could get more satisfactory photos.
I think I’m an end user of Second Life taking advantage of the ability of creators who knows how to give reality to the bodies of the avatars and who knows how to give motion to the avatar with the use of poses. I treat merges these two aspects, study of body language of a human body.
I hope that my photographs can be a stimulus of irony, emotions and feelings, that these photographs go beyond a Simple observation of the photograph itself.

Ciao sono Angela Paola in pixel Paola Mills
Per  interesse  professionale mi sono iscritta in Second Life nel 2007 come credo la maggior parte dei residenti  sull’onda della grande visibilita’ data dai media  alla piattaforma della Linden Lab.Non mi ha attratto il nome di Seconda Vita ma la potenzialita’ che il mezzo poteva esprimere.Appassionata di videogiochi dall’eta adolescenziale,leggendo un articolo su un giornale online statunitense  ho capito che era tutt’altra cosa,utilizzando un termine abusato Second Life e’ un luogo da utilizzare a proprio piacimento all’inizio come potenziale business,da parte di alcuni come speculazione finanziaria per altri una semplice chat in 3D.Vista la velocita’ di cambiamento dell’offerta multimediale presto e’ diventato una nicchia per amanti della creatività in tutte le sue potenzialità.
Non sono fotografa nella vita quotidiana o perlomeno non lo sono in senso professionale ,amo fare gli scatti di pragmatica quando vedo qualcosa che mi colpisce che sia una persona o una situazione per questo porto nella borsa una piccola macchina fotografica senza pretese.Solo Second Life mi ha permesso di sviluppare senza necessita di potenti mezzi la mia emotivita’,le sensazioni di un momento trasformandole in semplici scatti che fermano un momento della mia vita reale.
Diversamente da molto artisti presenti nel metaverso io lavoro in modo artigianale i miei snapshot utilizzando al minimo sindacale i programmi di editing grafico non per scelta ma per incapacita nell’utilizzo,frenando notevolmente i risultati ottenuti,questa pratica da dilettante fa un po da tappo alle idee che mi frullano per la testa,forse un po piu di tempo a disposizione mi permetterebbe di ottenere immagini piu soddisfacenti.
Mi ritengo una utilizzatrice finale delle capacita dei creatori del metaverso unendo la bravura di chi sa dare realta ai corpi degli avatar con chi sa dargli movimento con le pose.Io cerco di fondere le due cose privilegiando lo studio del linguaggio che un corpo umano sa trasmettere
Spero che le immagini che creo siano a volte stimolo per ironia,emozioni e sensazioni che vadano oltre la semplice osservazione di una fotografia.
Ciao Paola)
