Watch it Here:
Guests and host alike nervously awaited the word from Treet.tv’s Texas Timtam… “Live in 5, 4, 3, 2….”
Once I got used to the strangely foreign sound of my own voice, I think the show went pretty well! We opened up with an amazing conversation with the very brave, gifted artist Winter Nightfire, who talked about how SL has helped her balance her art and her RL struggles.
After a little commercial break, we reviewed a few events, then toured the new installation by Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield, experiencing immersive art as only a virtual world can bring you. We wound up the episode with a photo tour of our featured gallery, Patron Gallery and Emporium, owned by Eliza Wierwight.
The Treet.tv crew was an amazing help, answering a million questions, patiently wading through the piles of images I sent them for the episode.
Special thanks go out to many people for making the first episode happen! Saffia Widdershins, the Executive Producer and the person responsible for the concept of a show about art in virtual worlds and Aisling Sinclair who answered many questions from based on her experiences with Designing Worlds.
Artist, Graphic Designer and Builder Alexx Fenstalker built the amazing set from all original, hand-painted textures, as well as creatied the animations for both the stage and audience seats. The set itself received a lot of great comments from those who attended.
Photographer PJ Trenton provided some great photos for the show, both of Douglas and Desdemona’s Ripple, StormEye and DynaFleur installations and of the Patron Gallery featured at the end of the show.
Thank you to Aisling Sinclair and Raven Haalan for tuning in as moral support and staff substitution for the day of recording!
