|Nish Mip's 'Last Ocean' still stands at UWA|
Nish Mip's incredible creation, 'The Last Ocean', which took out the 2nd overall prize in the Grand Finale of the UWA 3D Art & Design Challenge in 2010, came with the following words:
"What I had in mind here was the death of a virtual world . It's been playing on my mind for some while...When virtual worlds die they go with a flick of a switch but I imagined a rag tag bunch of characters hanging on to the last remains as an inflated sun gradually drys their virtual oceans the search for other worlds begins . The whispers you can hear are remaining messages blowing in the binary wind ."
This is what we will witness in the next week, when the lights go out on the UWA FULL SIM ART SERIES. Chuckmatrix Clip, Silene Christen & June Clavenham are holding the fort in the final days as the sun drys the virtual ocean.
I would like to thank the brilliant array of some of Second Life's finest artists who have helped make the UWA FULL SIM ART SERIES what is, and what it has been. I hope in its brief time, it has found its own place in the historical annals of virtual art.
