Primtings is a “primmed paintings” museum .
“We are a museum dedicated to the interactive exploration of famous paintings and artwork brought to virtual life via 3d prims and other techniques.”
To help create “What Second Life can be,” Primtings contributes to the Prime sLiterary Initiative to bring the arts to virtual worlds to help make a better virtual world… because art humanizes the globe.
“The role of art is to make a world which can be inhabited.” —- William Saroyan
To explore how traditional 2D art can be directly adapted to the virtual world of Second Life by different SL artists. Primtings presents innovations in virtual world avant-garde art with each exhibit adding more than just a new 3rd dimension, but often also interactivity, and interpretations only possible in the virtual world, as envisioned by a range of master new media artists. Participating Artists (as of 2009): AM Radio, Blue Tsuki, Bryn Oh, Cel Edman, Dekka Raymaker, Eshi Otawara, Gatz Morang, Ina Centaur, Kacy Despres, Paula Dix, Shellina Winkler, Solkide Auer, Tezcatlipoca Bisiani, Ub Yifu, Voodoo Shilton, Wizard Gynoid, Wyatt Wellman, Zephyru Zapedzki
To share the wealth of RL art history through famous paintings with SL residents, in a uniquely SL-way. Primtings educates its visitors in both RL art and SL artistic techniques, through informative kiosks associated with each exhibit and Primtings.com website content. Thousands of SL residents have experienced Primtings since its founding in 2008—all through word of mouth! RL Schools from K-12 to higher education have brought their students and faculty to Primtings, through computer lab activities, on-screen presentations, and extracurricular assignments.
Goal: To raise tier for our island on SL, for the upcoming year beginning in March 2010.
In Second Life: To be able to expand each exhibit to an entire sim, such that one might truly be able to “walk into the world of a painting”—or live in one! .
In “Real Life”: To be able to create an entire museum of 3d recreations of 2D paintings in “real life.”
