LEA20 - Brexit - A Theatrical Performance by Art Blue, September 29th at 1pm SLT

BREXIT - A theatrical performance in front of the Surreal Cube
by Art Blue

Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016, 1.00 PM PDT LEA20

Intro: The Queen is having her regular afternoon tea in the saloon and the world around looks fine. The talks after some days passing on the Brexit have slowed down. The sun covers the Buckingham palace in a nice autumn light. Peace has found its way back to the Kingdom.
Then the door slammes open.
The Queen´s butler James rushing in:  “Your Majesty, Your Majesty. The crown will lose Scotland!”


How it came to the story: On September, 18, 2014 the Scottish people (from 16 years onwards) voted about the separation from England to gain full sovereignty as a separate country. The result was by 55% to stay as a part of the United Kingdom not very charming for the Queen. On June, 20, 2016 the supporters of the Brexit (“Leave the European Union”) made it by 51,9 %. That means that England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Gibraltar and Scotland have to leave. Only people above 18 years could vote there. The stats in Northern Ireland, Gibraltar and Scotland show that the majority there wants to stay in the EU. Also that the overwhelming majority of the young generation wants to stay in the EU. The Scottish Prime Minister calls now for a “second vote” to leave the United Kingdom so to stay in the European Union.

LEA9 - WaterWorld - by Oldlex

Grand Opening September 12, 2016
Mer & Creatures of the Deep Costume Party - with dj gunner.
Prizes will be awarded!
6pm-8pm slt

WaterWorld Hunt
Starting September 19, 2016

What is WaterWorld ?

 Kong's Skull Island was sinking fast and all life forms on the island were almost lost forever.
 We had to find a way to save all the animals.  Large ships were sent out to save them.

 When we got to the sinking island, to my surprise the mermaids under the island found a way to save most of the animals.
 Near the Mer City they laid out water proof containers and moved all the animals inside.  The mers were able to build a few islands for the animals to live on.  It seems the mers were very fond of the apes.  They even made a fun island for the apes to play on.

   Now we get to see their hard work and explore WaterWorld.  WaterWorld is a mix of land and sea.

 You initially land at the Visitor Welcome Center.  There you will find all kinds of ways to explore.  If you go down to the observation deck you will find a long glass tube leading you to the first under water container. Find your way around and touch doors to open them.Look for an airlock door that will let you outside the container to the sea bed. If you stay inside and find the other containers that take you to who knows where? There more ways to explore use teleports or canoes, all of the islands have glass tubes that take you up or down and follow the signs. The floating islands still have the birds on them along with a new zip line system.zip from one island to the next . relax with the wild life and enjoy the new life all around you . We even have a tram system to move you across the sea bed, under water caves to explore and a large under water pirate city.

 All kinds of plants cover the sea bed. Fish of all varieties and plants reach out to grab you and the large mer city ready for us to use and explore. the mix of animals is a long one and do not feed the sharks. do not surf with the sharks ... do it . so much to see and do. sit every wear . touch it all see it all, hear it all . explore this fantastic sim-wide build that is full of surprises and magical discovery, so much to see and do! explore as a mermaid.the way it was meant to be.  Excellent photo opportunities. now that this is done , maybe i can get some sleep.

Skull island is gone , Kong is gone but never forgotten

This project was made possible in part by a grant from Linden Endowment for the Arts. With builds by oldlex and misty rose .

No need for any kind of diving equipment . The mers have cast a spell on the sea so we all can breath under water.

LEA27 -- E V R E - a Tahiti Rae Build Sept 5 - Dec 31, 2016

a Tahiti Rae Build
Sept 5 - Dec 31, 2016

Are We Everywhere ... at all Times?

Yes, Psi remains "taboo" but on EVRE, you will discover how consciousness, joined with quantum physics, is taking us to new places, and time.  We are finding evidence of a collective intelligence and internal capabilities we must seek.  This is real.  Not fantasy.

On EVRE, travel in time, and then out of it.  What is our consciousness?  The purpose of EVRE is to present new evidence and to encourage the experience of what we don't yet quite understand.  We can see 13 billion light years into the past via the Hubble space telescope, but what is it like now?  Are the little gray men us, in the future?  Is our deja vu a real memory out of order, or a wink from the universe that the timing is right?  When our sleeping dreams come true, did we tap into the super string field?  What if time is a misconception? What if reincarnations are little errors we're not supposed to discover?  Or intentional.  Perhaps we don't see the future, or the past.  What if there's a place where everything always exists?  What if we never see it unless we put ourselves there?

What if we travel from dimension to dimension, and always exist?  We are capable of having a good or bad feeling and it comes true, seeing strange images awake or asleep that materialize, communicating with others on a level we don't understand, feeling we've known someone forever, constant deja vu, feeling the pain of strangers across the world, having flashes of memories from the far past, and experiencing anomalies in the present we don't understand.  How is this all possible? Don't brush it off!

Let's not use virtual reality to focus on our demons.  What a wonderful opportunity to do the opposite!  If, together, we intentionally and purposefully lift the "taboo" on the things we don't understand and explore along side with those who are breaking the forefront of new discoveries, we may open ourselves to a new truth.  One that we can enjoy not only in this dimension, but in all.  If we only use 1% of our brains, let's find out what the rest of it does, and take it seriously!

EVRE is 14 worlds.  In 12 of them, you can feel time in your memories.  In the thirteenth world, you can find all time.  And only from there, you can travel to Timeless.  Do we all exist there, for EVRE?

It's a subtle thing, but I think you'll "get it."  It may be one of the most important things we ever learn about.  You know something is there.  Because you feel it.  ~Tah

LEA20 -- The Surreal Cube -- opening Sept 1st at 1pm SLT

Art Blue invites you to his last installment THE SURREAL CUBE at LEA20.
“This will be my Monument” Art Blue

Grand Opening on September 1st, 1.00 PM SLT
With a short play: CRAVING FOR A MONUMENT
and a performance by Venus Adored: Goodbye Shining Blackstar
Live music will be performed by Ultraviolet Auer

Please arrive a little early to allow time to be seated before it begins at 1.01 pm

An excerpt: How it came …

Mankind loses old knowledge -- finally also the knowledge of keeping art alive was lost. A billionaire could no longer see that art works which have been created before the Cleft like the ones by Molly Bloom shall get lost and burned to ashes. He handed Art Blue over a blank cheque to create a space ship so the art might be safe in a different solar system. His name: SR Hadden. The name of the space ship: SURREAL CUBE. A few thousand years later his follower qHadden bought a disc map from an alien dog named FLA. This disc shows coordinates to a planet LEA. Is this the lost link to where the art was once created? qHadden set course …

As the approach of the big cube got noticed by long range sensors on LEA the awakening routine for Prof. Dr. Kawoom (the scientist who once sent signals to planet DRON7 with the names of the last 42 artists on this planet) became active. One of the names he engraved on the disc matched: Gem Preiz. The cube´s outer hull was a Gem Preiz and so the resonance signals of Vulcanicus, once the last place for art, created space, made room for it. But as time is a tricky thing the landing spot got miscalculated. Spot number 20 is too small for surreality -- there the instalment comes into scene.

The world is frozen for us in time by the owl, the A.I. who bails Art Blue out if he is in trouble. This gives us time to explore until October 15, 2016.

For the SURREAL CUBE the following artists set their views in place.

Key Contributors:
Gem Preiz, France: the outer cube, the stronghold
Mistero Hifeng, Italy: the landing area around the stronghold.
Molly Bloom, USA: The Molly Bloom Museum
Hyde Hackl, Netherlands: builder of the Molly Bloom Museum and The Egg.
Moewe Winkler, Germany: underwater world, the speaking fish
Juliette Surrealdreaming, USA: curator and stage
