Second Life Default Crate

with 2 comments

I am finally back from vacation and offline time and now fully dedicated to preparation and production of all my projects, workshops and stuff at 2nd city Marienstrasse Ars Electronica 07. Ars Electronica team here in Linz is working under full steam to get everything done till the festival starts 5.9.-11.9. 2007.

First samples and objects from the all over design I did for Marienstrasse are already done. On the left you see a 50x50x50 cm default Second Life crate. In total there will be at around 25 plain and also printed cubes scattered over Marienstrasse. I love the default wood version! You find these standard cubes in Second Life everywhere.

I’ll keep you posted about progress of production of Ars Electronica 2007. It’s going to be big and fun!
