The virtual art blog

.

My work today is a fusion of my old work in media and twenty five years of working with computers and my work as a artist.‭  ‬I find that‭ ‬computers are one of the most creative tools you can use.‭ ‬As a digital artist i do work on the web,‭ ‬in several virtual worlds and as a indie game developer.‭

‬I have started over‭ ‬10‭ ‬company's and i guess i will be a entrepreneur in the future‭ ‬as well.‭ ‬I always find new interesting projects in art and technology.‭

‬I explore community's in virtual worlds and simulators.‭ ‬Creating graphics,‭ ‬scripting and software.‭ ‬Second life,‭ ‬Opensim and game‭ ‬technology give me a chance to work on the edge of both the social web and all the different soft and hardware needed to run the new worlds i like to create.‭ ‬I am lucky to live in a age with a technology that I understand and love.‭ ‬

My work as a artist have found new ways in the digital era and to my surprise older artworks and paintings have gone full cycle and show up at quality auctions making them a foundation for new work and a inspiration for me that people still like my work.

 

 

My work

My work is mostly experimental. I always want to know what happens if you put this thing on this one. Will there be some great art then?

I have worked forever trying to find what art is all about and new media and computers are one of my greatest friends. Hacking art and soceity to find the basic code behind it all. I use  my knowledge of building hardware and writing software to do experiments in digital art and research our lifes and death.

 

The creation process is the same if you paint or use digital media. My work spans a lot of areas. Sometimes maybe they are to many. After art school i started out as a painter but i quickly got in to computers and the Internet. I still like to work with digital media. Exploring virtual worlds and create art for the web and games. Today i got the Oculus rift that makes it possible to bee in a alternate reality. I think art willl never be the same.

Light test for painting

I do a lot of graphic design for digital media in gaming and virtual worlds. And i love the digital camera. I do not have to work in a smelly darkroom anymore if i do not want to. I do many purely digital pictures in software and as a photographer at the hypergrid. And i also have a gallery there where i can show of my work. It is all net, servers and streaming information.

 

The road is open.

 

The work continues.

Talullah Winterwolf makes some kind of graphic cut and paste art. And i really liked it.

Talullah "My inspirations come from many sources, but the common thread is that all my creative works be it fashion, a photograph or a painting is that  tells a story in some form or other."

If you have a moment go and see.

From Sldeges profile: "

I make art and dream of perfection.

Primagery is the art I make in Second Life. A process of creating prim groupings in a sculptural arrangement, texturing and augmenting them with various features and then shooting pictues of them with the SL camera without alot of postprocessing."

 

I like it you can go and se it too.

No need for a new hype in virtual worlds.

OSG7BW_001

The new build for the OSgrid celebration.

Many people looking for a new hype in virtual worlds. The upcoming Oculus and the High Fidelity world. I do not believe it will be another hype with a lot of media coverage. Virtual worlds are mainstream today. We are a lot of avatars using VW today and I suppose with all the different game worlds there are a lot of us. Nothing is new anymore.

I use different worlds everyday. When I want to do some questing I go to Guild wars 2, if I want to drive fast cars with out killing myself I have Test drive unlimited 2, for art and socializing there is Second life and for building I go to my own devgrid or the OSgrid with Opensim.Today I use VATSIM and Flight simulator a lot. It is a thriving virtual community and a good example on how virtual worlds can build on a common interest.

Flight simulator was not made as a virtual world software at all. It is a simulator/game but a lot of clever people did not want it to stop there. So by adding software and networking to a otherwise closed game program they succeeded in creating a new world with pilots and controllers flying thousands of flights everyday. Creating YouTube movies and pictures for all aspects of virtual flying. And a education system for everybody that wants to join in. It was not made as a virtual world software but ended up as one anyway. There is a strong force here.

I think people want to create and work together. It is a basic human instinct to create new community's. So virtual worlds is here to stay.A new hype is not needed. Virtual worlds will expand without it anyway.
