This theme was not so evident for me , it took some time to ‘ripe’… how do you express love ? So sorry I couldn’t come up with something better than hearts and a caroussel :-) When you visit it would be good to set your sun setting to ‘night’ as there will be a red glow…
I do have a warm heart for IW, where I can spend my time to play around and giving me the opportunity to make what I had envisioned in my imagination.
Also saw some very nice builds on the exhibit but also some not that much into the theme and also some not that much of Art. But who cares, we have a lot of people who were building and having fun !
And when is it Art ? This is a difficult question (also debated in Real Life) and were is the line (in Virtual worlds) when it is just building with imagination, could this also be Art ?
So I have to think this over when the ICE projects start…so I want be disappointed if it is fun building but without the Art touch !
Do I sound to severe or maybe to quick to have any assumptions ? maybe …
for now, just jump on the merry go round…:-)
next post some pictures of other wonderful creations from exhibitors…
Last Night the IW Art Fest opened and Tranquillity (one of the founders of InWorldz) announced a new initiative !
Great news for all who have enough inspiration and artistic talent for building and making your imagination into 3D.
I really like this !
We are pleased to announce our very first endowment here at InWorldz it is going to be known as the InWorldz Cultural Arts Endowment a/k/a ICE.
ICE is available to everyone whether you are a novice or an extremely developed virtual artist, creator or developer.
ICE is headed by Jeri Rahja with her panel of Ladyheart Muirin and Gerrard Winstanley.
ICE comprises 3 full sims and 2 scenic sims.
The 3 full sims will rotate every month – and once an artists turn comes up they have 45days to 2 months to get their art project up, after which their project will be up for 45 days – until the next artists will have their turn to place their art project up and so on.
With these 3 endowed sims we can showcase from 12 to 24 artists per year – it will depend on the amount of prims the artists may need and where on the sim where the artist will be building.
InWorldz is proud to encourage the growth and development of Virtual Arts with this endowment – and we encourage each and everyone of you to take advantage of the opportunity this presents.
InWorldz has evolved into an enchanting and beautiful world where everyone has revealed their amazing creative artistic side. We have certainly lived up to the Henri Matisse quote, “Creativity takes courage” for our art and creativity within InWorldz has conquered many boundaries.
Yes indeed “Creativity takes courage”, some other quotes :
Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.
Edgar Allan Poe
A new Magazine also for InWorldz is born !
We welcome this initiatieve very much, a new literary and art magazine, called Eidolon Quarterly.
The journal is produced 4 times a year and includes both virtual and real world focused art & reading.

I wish Europa Syra good luck and succes with this initiatieve !
Cram ? cramming …well this word sounded like Chinese to me so I had to swot up my slang :-)
but actually cramming fits me well… hm… a slang term for last-minute study as I’m always Late ……
Anyway, there will be a first Cram Party tonight 10th.
More info at the Forum :
If you can make it (unfortenately thats way out of my time zone) you can go dance, interact and even sweat but most of all enjoy the Arts by taking pictures and posting them on ratherbe !
I will visit later and looking forward to this :-)
InWorldz has another media/gadget added : a fun way to post your pictures when you feel you would rather be at InWorldz doing funny stuff !
One of the founders describes it like this :
When you’re stuck cleaning the house or sitting behind a desk working, http://ratherbe.inworldz.com will be the place for you to show the world that you’d rather be flying planes, driving cars, or shopping in your favorite virtual world. We’ll be promoting your posts to show the internet how much fun they could be having if they join you.
Many do post a picture and it is fun (I didn’t yet).
To promote Art at Inworldz, some people are organizing soon some ‘ Art Party’s , invite people to take pictures and post them at ratherbe.
A very good initiatieve , combining all the platforms to promote InWorldz ! So keeping an eye on this world, especially for the Arts :-)
