On the occasion of the Bauhaus anniversary, the Werkleitz Festival 2019 will take place from May 25th to June 9th in Dessau-Roßlau. In the title model stands as a model for a future to be created and ruin as a testimony of a mostly idealized past. The aim of the festival is to locate the Bauhaus in a broader historical context. Thirteen artists are invited to this project, who dedicate themselves in Dessau from the current perspective to the poles of power model and ruin.

International Conference on Facets of Virtual Environments
Berlin, Germany, July 27-29, 2009.
This conference will also be mirrored in Second Life, hosted by my friends of NewBerlin www.youin3d.com.
Where is this whole 3D cinema/games hype coming from? Some people didn’t understand yet that an interesting gameplay/mmo/social interaction is the key to a successfull 3D space/game. The immersion is not gained from the perfect graphics or 3D impression but from a well made universe and social interaction, which doens’t mean I don’t like classic 3D glasses, they are great but for other reasons.
Check also the text based SL client textSL in this context.
Should a 3D-space/game be part of a web-page, embedded like metaplace below or should the 2D content (browser) be part of the 3D space like in Secondlife below? Will there ba a protocol or platform which could connect all these separated 3D worlds out there (VRML didnt make it)?
Sure, games want to be capsuled in a specific atmosphere and for that reason they mostly run in standalone full screen mode. But I would love to be able to drop by at any kind of virtual space/game with a single click without installing a new client or game. I want my interface and controls to be the same everywhere. I want to be able to walk my Hubbo Hotel character in WoW….
I think it’s hilarious how people in SL simulate real life with all its imperfectness.
“Intellectual Property” … close your eyes and say it 10 times very slowly …
The german translation even sounds more weird. I believe this is an oxymoron.
I just read this good summary on copyright etc issues in CT (german) and felt like sharing it. 😉
