Over the last few days I have been embracing the possibilities of Second Life and allowing myself to work in a more appropriate way within the space. The box-type 'rooms' are gone, as a way of ensuring that the space is as immersive as possible and that the transitions between spaces are more informal and seamless.
Over the last couple of days I have been making changes to the environment settings in my Second Life playground, and attempting a few larger-scale works which I am currently describing as my 'sculpture park'. Thanks to one of my favourite Second Life artists for her advice and also to the LEA committee for their help in making these changes.
After a little break to concentrate on writing and present a conference paper, I returned to my build to make some final adjustments to the throw of the projector beam in my installation and to add some lighting effects in areas which can appear a little dark depending on the time of day which is being represented in Second Life. All being well, The Lull will be open to the public within the next few days.
