The metaverse symbol


#dance

The word: „Cyberspace“ is known now as an artword, its born from the word „Cyber“ (a shortform from the english word „Cybernetic“ that again comes from the greek word „Kybernetike“; „The art of navigate“ and the word „Space“. On the worldfamous Macy-Conferences in the years 1946 till 1953 Cybernetik was something of high interest. Wellknown and famous scientists as Alan Turing, John von Neumann and Heinz von Foerster started here from scratch the modern computertechnics and the programm-architecture, today the basics for the Cyberspace. The real Cyberspace was opened by Secondlife. So you speak of web 3-D or so called Metaverses. The Metaverses are Internet-based virtual time-space-infrastructures. The miracle that we are experiencing today: the Cyberspace, the dematerialized virtual time-space, the worldwide webbed society. where we „surf around„ with lightspeed. An artist that is NOT using this virtual universe as a challenge and a goal doesnt deserve the name „Avantgarde“

This e-book dedicated to

William Fetter (1928-2002), an art director who worked for Boeing, was a computer graphics pioneer and the first to draw the human figure using a computer

#dance One of the very first sculptures I made was a transparent sphere with 2 transparent ovals inside, I learned how to use scripts with objects and got my first rotation script to let them move slowly. I copied the first sphere to become 4 of them and gave them soft pastel colours. Placed inside a black box the colours and movements were very beautiful and walking through them, you walked inside art and got different views from different angles. I was exited about the effect and used it later often for other sculptures and installations.

#dance We hanged images of my real paintings in the air but turned them into peaces and put them on flexi prims so new SL art was made. The paintings went “dancing� as well in space and were floating and circling around.

#dance From sculpted prims I created colourful “rocks� and added thunder sounds so when you walked in you heard thunder rolling.

#dance Most of the sculptures were reacting indirect or direct on avatars coming close. Velazques showed me how to make a scarecrow and left me to find out on my own to make new ones. He wrote scripts to let them hop and jump and dance at orbit or at random. I made several and they looked pretty funny. Going in collision or reacting on avatars passing by and giving off funny sounds. We did put them in give away boxes as presents to visitors.

#dance From a real painting I used the texture on a sculpted prim and it came out very interesting looking, so I made a sculpture from that and called is “Birds�. From that sculpture I made pictures and used those again as textures on a new dress that I animated with a rotating script so it moved all around the avatar.

#dance I did build a big sphere with a change texture script inside and different textures. Inside the sphere a pose ball to sit on and getting a meditation pose. Inside the sphere the textures changed colours and with some sweet sounds the experience was complete.

#dance All over Second Life you find all kind of clubs and places where you can “dance”. Its something people like to do in real life so also in this world.. “Dance balls ”to stand on makes your avatar moves like you were the best dancer in the world, so we decided to grab a few of those “balls” and place them around for an exhibition we held. The exhibition was showing a few of the first sculptures I made in SL. To make it more entertaining for visitors we made a stage with instruments and streamed in music from some records I made in RL.
