I’ve blogged the celebration in years past; this was the first year I got a press pass and had I known about the warm, enthusiastic welcome from the greeters and  the helpful press kit I might have applied much sooner.

The welcome area is on a ship; there are two ladders leading down. Between the base of the ladders is the beginning of a treasure hunt if you go…

June 1st-2nd saw the 7th annual Augmented World Expo take place in Santa Clara, California. Billed as “the largest event dedicated to AR, VR and Wearable Technology”. Among the 200 speakers appearing at the event was one Ebbe Altberg, who sat down with Mark Piszczor of Occipital to chat about Project Sansar.

I was alerted to the re-opening of the University of Texas, San Antonio ArtSpace gallery by Bryn Oh.  This marks the first new exhibition within the gallery in a new of years. It marks a reconnection of the university’s virtual presence with Second Life arts, which has been spearheaded by curator Constructivist Solo, with the very able support of Igor Ballyhoo and Rebecca Bashly.

Together with Bryn, Rebecca and Igor are three out of the five artists who will be exhibiting at the facility through until the end of July, the remaining two artists being Eupalinos Ugajin and Ini Inaka. In addition, works by Artée (Artistide Despres), Sasun Steinbeck and Afrika Burton can be found with additional piece by Igor and Rebecca within the broader region.
