MachinimUWA V: Bleu Oleander's 'Something's Buggin Me'

Bleu Oleander's "Somethin's Buggin' Me', for MachinimUWA V: Seek Wisdom, is a tribute to master scripter Oberon Onmura's 'Awareness Array'. In Bleu's words:

"My video challenges viewers to contemplate what constitutes wisdom for them. Wisdom ... the cultural narratives we absorb; the narratives we tell ourselves. We seek wisdom in the words and ideas of others, in the experience of everyday life, in art, music, dance and theater.

I've used references to Greek oracles, institutes of higher learning and contemporary art to suggest that we find wisdom in a variety of places. Oberon Onmura's beautiful piece "Awareness Array" is the perfect metaphor for this reflection on wisdom. Wisdom starts with awareness, coming to us from many sources. We incorporate that wisdom into our own self wisdom ... wisdom for how a life can be lived to enhance human flourishing."

This machinima is now part of the L$725,000, MachinimUWA V: Seek Wisdom. MachinimUWA V's theme is a tribute to the Centenary of the University of Western Australia and UWA's New Courses 2012.
