A new kind of artform?

Not my work (if only!), but I think it is well worth looking at. The artist's Second Life name is "Robbie Dingo." His blog is: http://digitaldouble.blogspot.com/2007/07/watch-worlds.html


Virtual worlds are the wave of the future and this gives a very compelling reason why any and all visual artists should be catching that wave.

I'm all for machinema but this seems like a tutorial set to music. I see some potential, but I unfortunately cannot articulate where you might go from here. Keep exploring though!

Thanks for the comment. Not my work actually. The context was more a documentary of how he created the guitar for Ms Vega when she gave a live concert in the Second Life world. For those who have attempted to make something look nice in Second Life, it's greatly appreciated because we know how primitive the tools are.

But its an interesting thing, even those who make their "Real Life" living by creating things for Second Life, generally prefer to to it within the Second LIfe world, even though more powerful tools exist outside of it.

There's something more satisfying than merely pushing pixels around effectively, if it is done in the context of the game-world.

A more artistic exploration of Robbie Dingo's (Rob Wright) is found here:

One of my friends did a really awesome documentary on Second Life and the people who make it their livelihood. Check it out!
