    Pema Pera: hi Liza!
    Susi Alcott: Hi Liza
    Bleu Oleander: yes, Susi, the Art of Being project is open to all PaB members
    Susi Alcott: and free to 'leave' any thought or poem or 'poem' ever ?
    Bleu Oleander: yes, place a note card in your piece
    Bleu Oleander: (Storm has put a script for that in the Village)
    Zen Arado: and it is easy to do
    Bleu Oleander: Did you get an email with the guidelines for the art work?
    Liza Deischer: doint the art piece of placing the notecard?
    Susi Alcott: I believe I know then how to do, but yes need that Storm's script
    Liza Deischer: *or
    Zen Arado: placing the notecard
    Zen Arado: thought it would be more difficult as I don't know anything about scripting
    Zen Arado: but just followed Storm's instructions
    Liza Deischer: the script is already there, so that's great
    Bleu Oleander: one of the side goals of the project is to learn a little about building from those who know more
    Zen Arado: I ust dragged to my contents tab
    Bleu Oleander: Storm is an excellent teacher!
    Liza Deischer: or scripting
    Susi Alcott: that scripting yes is completely beyond my knowledge
    Susi Alcott: ok; then I might have few lines
    Zen Arado: think I might get into art a bit more in SL
    Zen Arado: Bleu has inspired me
    Liza Deischer: :-)
    Susi Alcott: Good _/!\_
    Bleu Oleander: so nice to hear that Zen!
    Zen Arado: maybe build a gallery
    Liza Deischer: wow
    Zen Arado: I am no good at marketting
    Bleu Oleander: Zen is a wonderful artist for anyone that hasn't seen his work


    It's great to see everyone's inner artist blooming in the garden that is Play as Being.

    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Pema Pera: You've started an avalanche of creative activity, Bleu!
    Zen Arado: it would be nice to have two galleries - one for abstract, one for traditional paintings
    Bleu Oleander: yes, it's really inspiring!
    Zen Arado: or maybe get into sculptures !
    Pema Pera: interesting idea, Zen, we probably have space enough for all that
    Bleu Oleander: everyone's inner artist is emerging
    Zen Arado: here?
    Bleu Oleander: I would love to have a show of your work in my Studio too Zen
    Zen Arado: could have small gallery here I suppose
    Zen Arado: but isn't that too commercial Pema?
    Liza Deischer: be right back
    Pema Pera: is what too commercial, Zen?
    Zen Arado: having a gallery around here
    Pema Pera: you mean to sell something?
    Zen Arado: well - people might want to buy paintings
    Pema Pera: interesting question, my first reaction is that it would be fine, but let's see what the whole group thinks about it -- would be good to bring up during a weekly meeting on Sunday, 8 am SLT
    Pema Pera: it may depend on how it's done
    Zen Arado: I practically give them away in SL anyway :)
    Pema Pera: if tastefully displayed, with an emphasis on display, with perhaps the option to buy without overly advertising, that might be okay
    Zen Arado: 300 L$
    Bleu Oleander: (I already bought one of Zen's paintings ... yes, very nice price Zen!)
    Pema Pera having a vising of 100 m high ad towers :-)
    Pema Pera: *vision
    Bleu Oleander: hehe
    Zen Arado: that column I built remined me of the 'stepping off a 100 foot pole ' koan
    Susi Alcott: they thankfully are not allowed in SL anymore
    Bleu Oleander: wb Liza
    Liza Deischer: ty
    Zen Arado: Eliza jumped off it last night
    Susi Alcott: wb Liza
    Pema Pera: hehehe, Zen
    Pema Pera: wow, we'll have to talk to Eliza then!
    Pema Pera: let her share her experiences :)
    Bleu Oleander: art is bringing out the wild side!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Bleu Oleander: hey Yaku!
    Pema Pera: hi Yaku!
    Zen Arado: think the koan is about not clinging to spiritua openings but keep practicing and saty open
    Zen Arado: Hi Yaku
    Liza Deischer: (you all look good now :-))
    Susi Alcott: Hi Yaku
    Liza Deischer: hi Yaku
    Pema Pera: How long have you been painting, Zen?
    Zen Arado: about 20 years
    Pema Pera: what brought you to get started, if I may ask?
    Zen Arado: took it up for something to do when I took early retirement
    Zen Arado: I've never been all that professional about it though I sell through local art clubs
    Pema Pera: ah, also in RL then!
    Zen Arado: oh yes mostly in RL
    Susi Alcott: have to leave so I wish you all good time
    Liza Deischer: bye Susi
    Bleu Oleander: I really like your recent attempts at more abstract work
    Zen Arado: bye Susi :)
    Bleu Oleander: bye Susi
    Vellora Vella: bye Susi
    Pema Pera: see you, Susi!
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Zen Arado: I find abstracts more nejoyable to do
    Bleu Oleander: I do too


    A special theme session on creativity and the Art of Being project would be a wonderful conversation.

    Bleu Oleander: It might be nice to have a special PaB session with artists and their work when the Village Square is full of art ...
    Zen Arado: yes
    Pema Pera: sure, a theme meeting is a good idea
    Vellora Vella: sorry to say - but have to search for some textures... nice talking with you
    Pema Pera: just let me know
    Pema Pera: bye Vellora!
    Zen Arado: I tend to think everyone has artistic ptential
    Bleu Oleander: bye Vellora :)
    Vellora Vella: see you soon
    Liza Deischer: bye vellora
    Vellora Vella: bye bye
    Zen Arado: bye Vellora
    Pema Pera: whenever you like to hold a theme meeting, I can add it to the list
    Pema Pera: http://playasbeing.wik.is/PaB_Theme_Sessions
    Bleu Oleander: several others are planning to do art for the Village so it will be nice to include all who want to participate
    Zen Arado: Calvino was very interesting at my meeting yesterday talking about creativity
    Zen Arado: that could be a good theme sometime
    Bleu Oleander: yes!
    Zen Arado: I am so interested in the difference between creative and rational thought
    Zen Arado: or in how they combine
    Bleu Oleander: for me it's a woven fabric
    Bleu Oleander: creativity and rational thought informing each other
    Yakuzza Lethecus sneaks to a lecture on philosophy island
    Liza Deischer: yes, if there is any difference
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bfn
    Bleu Oleander: bye Yaku
    Zen Arado: bye Yaku
    Liza Deischer: bye Yaku
    Liza Deischer: I guess it is more about some kind of concentration
    Liza Deischer: makin different parts of your brain working together
    Pema Pera: any piece of scientific research starts with creativity and ends with rationality, to check the result -- to say that science is a rational pursuit is only half the truth
    Zen Arado: yes Pema
    Bleu Oleander: agree Pema
    Zen Arado: Einstein said a lot of things on that theme
    Liza Deischer: oh, that's interesting
    Zen Arado: he only did the maths after some crative inspiration that seemed to come from nowhere
    Liza Deischer: that makes sense
    Liza Deischer: looking at what he 'produced"
    Zen Arado: and even initially a scientist has to have some kind of feeling that a piece of research might lead somewhere?
    Liza Deischer: I can't imagine you can do anyting without some creativity
    Pema Pera: yes, without a hunch you wouldn't even know where to start . . .
    Pema Pera: but in contrast, I now have to stop :-)
    Pema Pera: RL calling
    Pema Pera: see you soon again!
    Bleu Oleander: bye Pema
    Liza Deischer: bye Pema
    Zen Arado: ok bye Pema
    Bleu Oleander: I need to go too
    Liza Deischer: I need to go too
    Liza Deischer: :-)
    Bleu Oleander: busy rl day today
    Zen Arado: ok better go myself
    Liza Deischer: bye everyone
    Bleu Oleander: bye all
    Zen Arado: bye all
