Sneak Preview: ARTÉE’s LAST VALSE

Artée (Artistide Despres) received last year for the beautiful and sophisticated scripted music instruments great attention and won quite a few prizes. When it was clear that she would get a full sim at LEA, they should be merged into an "orchestra". So now we can enjoy these works all together on LEA6. The small miracles interact partially with the SL wind and it's a joy to watch them and enjoy the sounds.

But ...
In what kind of surrounding are the works? Scattered urban environments between water and everywhere fly large and small marine animals and insects. The glass dome above the sensitive instruments is breaking. It came to my mind that animals in still life’s are meant as a symbol of decay. But these critters are moving, it is almost an invasion. Artée stands alone in between and fights with a pole. It is clear that this fight hardly could be won. I got strong compassion seeing this and now understood the title of the work: 'Where I found my Ivory Tower Surrounded by a Huxleyan World, Which Turned out to be an Orwellian World'
Even if last year was a good one for Artée, so much happened in the world: Fukushima, Occupy Wall Street, the failure of the UN Climate Conference and so on. This touches an artist of course and penetrates the creative work. Artée said on that: "The world is on the edge."
Nothing to add, besides: Don’t miss that work!

But also in technical terms, the work is premium-class and partly in mesh. Therefore make sure to use the correct viewer. Stream and media should be off​​. Put the WL on Barcelona or Midnight. Some parts interact with avatars. Walk, jump and fly around to discover all.

 Now rwplaced by this work.
