In Haveit's words:
"INVITATION to participate: What if all life disappeared from the Earth's surface? Could the virtual world of the bots persist? Have your idea (as a text) included in the 'Second Libations' art exhibit. I am most grateful to the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) and the UWA (University of Western Australia) for having granted me the opportunity to show my exhibit in the Art Series. I have been given the month of December 2011 to install the full sim exhibit "Second Libations". I am planning to display texts contributed by residents of Second Life as part of the show. If you are interested, please submit a paragraph (or more) describing your solution to the survival of the bots and their world. You may also send me a texture if you have something illustrated to accompany your text. The story line of the exhibition is in the following paragraph. Have fun with your ideas, or be serious in your creative efforts. Please send your text as a notecard AND an IM to Haveit Neox. This way I should receive it regardless of SL's habit of discarding or capping communications.
EXHIBIT SCENE: The great cosmic storm swept up the last of Earth's water molecules. On the lifeless planet, the only remaining intelligence flickers on computer screens. In the absence of human maintenance, bot scipters, bot artists, and bot teachers scramble to rescue their resources before the impending threat of blackout. Like the sorcerer's apprentice, they begin flooding their world by rezzing buckets of virtual water, in the hope of rehydrating their users. Their strategy appears to be failing. Not having been programmed for an unforeseen event of this magnitude, the bots plea for your solution in securing their virtual world.
The Second Libations await your offering. Your participation in the ritual is eagerly anticipated.
For any questions, please contact me. Thanks for your attention,
DATE OF EXHIBIT: Dec 3 - Dec 31, 2011

DATE DUE: It would be helpful to get texts delivered to me by November 25, however, I will be posting texts from visitors all during the exhibition as well.

Please send text (and illustration if you have one) to Haveit Neox"
