"What is art exactly" ? Podcast. Brooklyn is Watching, Second life. Jack the Pelican, New York

Snapshots from Brooklyn is Watching (BIW), and some of the art discussed in their Podcast 45 and 46 and shown in the video published at the 13 th of February 2009.

Artists: Ichibot Nishi and Arm Strom. Dekka Raymaker did later on, add his syringes.  I think the syringes do contribute to the project in a brilliant way.  

Podcasts from Brooklyn is watching. The regulars Jay Van Buren (Jay Newt) and Boris Kizelshteyn were joined by Alpha Auer, the artist and blogger of NPIRL.  There was a conversation about the wealth of interesting art on the SIM. 

"Every story should have something icky about it, otherwise its not a story": Alpha Auer.

I have removed the teapot with the script. It was partly ment like a disguice for more serious matter. The english word "disguise", was new for me when i started to play in Second life.

Later on i have added a new version of my insect, some sort of a parasitize wasp.

I have a playful aproach to Second life, and here i use a script from Arcadia... I have had a lot of fun with "the animated states of A..." Thank you!

Text and snapshots: Arm Strom.

Ichibot Nishi and "the polkadotproject" at Brooklyn is watching, in Second Life

Snapshots: Arm Strom

In december 2008 there was an artinstallation, "a polkadotproject" under the sealevel.

I meet the artist Ichibot Nishi for the first time. (His/her avatar, left).


Since last summer, i have visited the gallerylandscape "Brooklyn is watching" several times.

This virtual gallery do interact with the gallery "Jack the Pelican Presents" in Brooklyn New York. 

In the real life gallery, visitors will be able to see and interact with anything that happens at the sim in second life, on a 52 inch monitor.

I went berserk with my camera,...

Ichibot Nishi is one of my favourite builders in Second life.

Pavig Lok, Ichibot Nishi and the Second life art exibition landscape - Brooklyn is watching - at Popcha

Art: Ichibot Nishi

Snapshots: Arm Strom 

By "tracking" the Second life mentors Pavig Lok and LittleToe Bartlett, i found Popcha. Popcha and Broocklyn is watching, with ever changing modelling projects, art installations and educational profile.


Some days ago i put up my yellow and black walls, and got an interesting message from Ichibot Nishi, ... in the shape of a pink chainsaw. Ishibot is one of the artists i really have recognized at Popcha.

It reminds me of the first project i saw by Ichibot Nishi, in july 2008. I wonder what the artist likes to tell us?

When spellchecking some names i found this link: Broocklyn is watching Podcast # 45 from yesterday 7.february 2009.
