Tao Quan described Craft Grid as a baby the other day, and it’s apt – there are lots of exciting firsts are going on, sweet small steps forward that probably seem no big deal in a place like SL or InWorldz, but for the Crafty Ones are a delight. As you can read in an earlier post, we got the Craft version of the Radionne, Vaudrouille Zepp‘s trans-grid talking device (woot before even InWorldz got it, soror says!) and we also got grid-wide Voice – how neat, to be standing on Oberon Onmura‘s sim Elena talking to Tao who was ten sims away on Hydra. Very exciting newness also for the ArtsParks sims, the arrival of artist-in-residence Maya Paris who has taken over the installation sim Locus Amoenus. Can’t wait to see what she makes of it!
Then yesterday evening we had the first public performance of Alien Bolero, by Velazquez Bonetto, Josina Burgess, and Junivers Stockholm of CARP, in front of a dozen residents. Once the prims had finished dancing to Junivers’ music, it was our turn to step out in the shadowy, lag-free theater, accompanied by Josina’s colourful particles and dancing circles.
