    Bleu Oleander: difficult to portray in a photo

    Paradise Tennant: hmmmmmmmm
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmmmm .... mmmm

    Bleu Oleander: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Guardians'...Report_by_Pema
    Bleu Oleander: sorry bad link
    Calvino Rabeni: wheels keep turning; ice on the pond; it can be any time of day you want; but hit Ctrl-Q; and you're gone.
    stevenaia Michinaga: link worked
    Bleu Oleander: ok great
    Bleu Oleander: very interesting post
    Bleu Oleander: so I was inspired to base this project around it
    Paradise Tennant: smiles it is a great project Bleu :)
    Paradise Tennant: been thinking a lot of about timeless time
    stevenaia Michinaga: if they are anything approaching the sculptures, it should be amazing
    Paradise Tennant: yees
    Bleu Oleander: I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does!
    Paradise Tennant: how do we submit and by when
    Bleu Oleander: after the photos are done, we'll have a special session to talk about them
    Paradise Tennant: wonders if sl will support time lag photography say a flower blooming :)
    Bleu Oleander: hmm
    Bleu Oleander: that would be cool if it did
    Calvino Rabeni: I showed someone a RL photo; who said, that image comes from SL doesn't it?
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Calvino Rabeni: Or motion blur; depth of field; etc.
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps you should post your emal to the WIki
    Bleu Oleander: my email to the group?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: with the detaisl
    Bleu Oleander: we need an "art of being" wiki page
    stevenaia Michinaga: sometimes emails from the group get lost
    Paradise Tennant: yes we do !
    Paradise Tennant: what a great idea!
    Bleu Oleander: to put projects and photos
    Paradise Tennant: being is an art ... an art has a kind of being
    Bleu Oleander: yes!
    stevenaia Michinaga: the sculpures can be put there too as a start
    Bleu Oleander: yes, I think we should put the sculptures there as well
    stevenaia Michinaga: a place for comments
    Bleu Oleander: yes, who does the wiki organization?
    stevenaia Michinaga: scratches head
    stevenaia Michinaga: looks at Cal
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and blinks
    Bleu Oleander: perhaps after it is changed over to the new servers
    Bleu Oleander: not to complicate things
    Calvino Rabeni: Sorry, I had an interrupt :)
    Bleu Oleander: but we should all photograph our sculptures in anticipation of a future wiki page
    stevenaia Michinaga: n.p., in your absence we volenteered you, as it always is
    Calvino Rabeni: After the server changes, the wiki will be reorganized
    Bleu Oleander: perhaps then an art of being page
    Calvino Rabeni: If you have any ideas / requests, please let me know!
    Calvino Rabeni: Because, otherwise it will be a committee of One
    Calvino Rabeni: (That being, myself)
    Calvino Rabeni: Simply due to the concreteness of the work
    Calvino Rabeni: Not through any desire of control
    Bleu Oleander: I think it would be nice to have a page to document our art projects
    Calvino Rabeni: So probably, I'll take the first crack at it,
    Paradise Tennant: smiles someone has to
    Calvino Rabeni: then of course, somehow new versions can be done in a "self-organizing" manner
    Calvino Rabeni: So it will evolve without being micro-managed
    Bleu Oleander: yes, people can post their own art pieces
    Paradise Tennant: thinks art is a practice :)
    Bleu Oleander: me too
    Calvino Rabeni: I like the guided tour approach taken in the sacred art museum
    Calvino Rabeni: maybe we can do some similar thing on the wiki, or here in the SL
    stevenaia Michinaga: pages as gallery rooms?
    Calvino Rabeni: It woudl be fun to see more interactivity also
    stevenaia Michinaga: 3d has so far to go on web pages
    Bleu Oleander: yes it would be nice to make the wiki art pages interactive
    Calvino Rabeni: Just anything to prompt people to explore a little too, with some "guidance"
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: Childrens books had a lot of ways to make reading interesting for kids
    Calvino Rabeni: Like, you pull out the tail of some hidden animal
    Calvino Rabeni: There might be more adult versions of such things
    Bleu Oleander: that would be fun
    stevenaia Michinaga: we are all still children
    stevenaia Michinaga: playing here
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Bleu Oleander: who us??
    Bleu Oleander: lol
    stevenaia Michinaga: no need to "adult" it up
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, playing as ... (?)
    Paradise Tennant: we are ... when I first discovered sl I kind felt 12 all over again .. particularly liked the falling .. so much fun to fall :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Agree steve, once you "adult" things, there goes the neighborhood
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: fall, get up, so you can fall again
    Calvino Rabeni: Have you tried leaping off the Kira Cafe platform?
    Bleu Oleander: of course
    stevenaia Michinaga: ofcourse, there are always people partying down there
    Calvino Rabeni: I wonder what percentage of SL people have thought to do it
    Calvino Rabeni: The one side has a western disco under it
    Bleu Oleander: hmm ... seems like an obvious jump to me
    Calvino Rabeni: the other side - someone said there was a balloon service that landed there
    Paradise Tennant: hmm can't say I have .. adds it to the list ..use to just fly to the top of the grid and then plumet
    Calvino Rabeni: Is that true (the balloon)?
    Bleu Oleander: the sl bucket list
    stevenaia Michinaga: lol
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: we all need a bucket list
    stevenaia Michinaga: sounds like a facebook page title
    Paradise Tennant: let's take the balloon ride and go for a jump :)
    Bleu Oleander: sure
    Calvino Rabeni: Where does it start?
    Bleu Oleander: btw, we have a fun salon on sunday
    Paradise Tennant: near the cafe I think
    Paradise Tennant: yes I got your notecard
    Bleu Oleander: with an sl artist
    Bleu Oleander: great new project
    Bleu Oleander: I love to see what people create in sl
    Paradise Tennant: it is a almost a barrier free zone for creativity
    Bleu Oleander: almost!
    Calvino Rabeni: what are the barriers to creativity?
    Bleu Oleander: it's a lot to learn on the tech side
    Bleu Oleander: just learning the medium
    Calvino Rabeni: Dreaded learning curve, right
    Paradise Tennant: hmm I guess .. the physical constraints sometimes to articulating what your imagination can see so clearly ..
    Bleu Oleander: so much to learn if you come from an artist background
    Calvino Rabeni: I was thinking about collaborations
    Bleu Oleander: yes, would be good to have tech work with artist
    Calvino Rabeni: Not much really, just whether I could team up with someone and co-create the artistic SL settings
    Bleu Oleander: yes, great idea
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe, a little tech rubs off, a little creativity rubs off, on the partners
    Bleu Oleander: they each learn
    Bleu Oleander: that was the original idea of art of being
    Bleu Oleander: to have people work together
    Bleu Oleander: and learn
    Calvino Rabeni: Bleu, will you have a "spec" page on the wiki, for what's becoming possibly, a series of projects?
    Bleu Oleander: yes, plan to do a series of projects
    Bleu Oleander: was announcing them one at a time
    Calvino Rabeni: A web page to check the latest, etc.
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I seem to have lost track of the "latest"
    Bleu Oleander: oh you mean a description of the current project and the parameters?
    Calvino Rabeni: Also it turns into good publicity, or magnetism, or whatever
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes I meant like that, Bleu
    Bleu Oleander: good idea
    Bleu Oleander: but i guess i need a page to post it on?
    Calvino Rabeni: You can make one anywhere on the wiki
    Bleu Oleander: I can?
    Calvino Rabeni: I think so - can't every PAB person edit the wiki?
    Paradise Tennant: smiles you can do anything Bleu I am quite convinced of it :)
    Calvino Rabeni: LIke when posting logs - just go somewhere and create a new page
    Bleu Oleander: hmm
    Calvino Rabeni: You could start in Guardian Contributions; if it's personal, or promote it to a more shared area in the wiki
    Calvino Rabeni: People seem shy about the wiki
    Calvino Rabeni: There have been no borderline uses, or anything
    Bleu Oleander: I think it could be a main section page that people could add to with pics and comments
    Calvino Rabeni: LIke, putting a not on the front page that says "Hey Lookie Click Here Visit My Cool Thing!"
    Calvino Rabeni: If you want help / advice I'd be glad to assist
    Bleu Oleander: sure
    Calvino Rabeni: OK just ask anytime then Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: ok thanks
    Bleu Oleander: from the main page it doesn't look like you can add a new page
    Calvino Rabeni: http://playasbeing.wik.is/PaB_Art
    Calvino Rabeni: This could be moved arount; whatever you like
    Bleu Oleander: oh great, could that say "Art of Being" ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: looks very nice there
    Calvino Rabeni: It would be at the top of the list
    Calvino Rabeni: the list is alphabetized
    Calvino Rabeni: It could say PaB - Art of Being
    Calvino Rabeni: OK?
    Bleu Oleander: it could say "PaB Art of Being"
    Bleu Oleander: that way wouldn't be at the top
    Paradise Tennant: smiles ... creation in flow !
    Calvino Rabeni: The title changed, but the link did not
    Calvino Rabeni: (which is OK)
    Bleu Oleander: that worked
    Calvino Rabeni: OK - we're "collaborating" :)
    Bleu Oleander: fun
    stevenaia Michinaga: always should be
    Bleu Oleander: so i'll post the info about this new project
    Calvino Rabeni: GTG now though - but IM me if you want anything regarding this, Bleu
    Paradise Tennant: thanks cal .. have a good nite
