Life in virtual worlds.

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.

La Perla. the Italian way.

This sim is really texture heavy but if you can wait you can get some nice pictures. It is a go and see. But not for the weak computer.

The future of virtual communities.

venice_001

I have kept out of Opensim and Second life for a while. Just some occasional visits to pay for my gallery and shops.

I have explored some other communities that have what I think virtual worlds lack. Simulated vehicles. I have found some old Flight simulator networks that are really thriving. Thousand of pilots and controllers do virtual flying everyday. Real training systems for pilots and controllers. With classes over internet with TeamSpeak. Yes it can be used for other things than games.

I am amazed that old software like Flight simulator 2004 and FSX are still expanded with new products both commercial and free from the community. I found people driving sports cars together and now I am just waiting to meet other trucks in Euro truck simulator.

People still play Counter strike and my World of warcraft server is full like never before.

It is strange that big areas of Second life is so empty. I check my OSgrid island and maybe a few visits a month. Clearly virtual worlds have a great future. The art community in SL is strong and still some fascinating work is done. LEA being one of the places to visit. Clubs still come and go and I suppose there are a lot of people having cybersex. As there are no theme in virtual worlds and a lot of freedom I think it would be the perfect place to find new things to do. But unfortunately no.

I found a lot of other virtual hobbies to create for and now days I am trying to figure out what to do in SL and Opensim when I have found so many other great places to be on the net.

We need a new vision to develop further or a great new business idea.
