MachinimUWA VI: Bryn Oh's 'Juniper'



The amazing prose and film of Bryn Oh graces the challenge with 'Juniper', 5 days out from the close of entries!

Bryn Oh's Juniper
Under a blanket
with holes throughout
nobody sees in
but Juniper looks out

She whispers

Come under with me
and together we'll hide
hold me in the darkness
there'll be no outside

where people are cruel
and winters are cold
where I don't fit in
and everything's sold

Climb inside
we'll be two hands in a glove
fingers entwined
because you are my love

Gift from the Gods - At UWA in RL & SL



Robin Yaknithou's 'Gift from the Gods' @ UWA
A wonderful sculpture, 'Gift from the Gods' by Robin Takinthou, first seen at Sculpture by the Sea in Western Australia has been presented to the University of Western Australia as a gift for her Centenary by the West Australia State Government. The sculpture, presented by the Premier Colin Barnett symbolises humankind's pollution not only of the Earth but also of outer space.

Gift from the Gods @ UWA in SL, assembled by FreeWee Ling of the United States
With the permission of the artist, his beautiful work has been reassembled outside the Somerville Auditorium on the grounds of the UWA virtual presence in Second Life by UWA Second Life Curator of Arts, FreeWee Ling (D.Newton) of the United States. Anyone wishing to visit the work in the virtual world, can find it HERE.

The plaque situated in both worlds
 
The MachinimUWA VI: Reflections challenge had asked for the inclsion of one of the 3 spaces of reflection at UWA, either, the Reflection Pond, the Sunken Gardens or the Somerville Auditorium. Now with the 'Gift from the Gods' become part of UWA, this had been added to the original 3 for inclusion as part of MachinimUWA VI due to the wondrous reflective qualities of the artwork, which virtual worlds will be hard pressed to show off in its full glory!

MachinimUWA VI: 'Cloud' by Hypatia Pickens

 

In 'Cloud' by Hypatia Pickens we see more of her wondrously haunting imagery. In describing the machinima she says:

 "Cloud," a well-known demon, has stolen a woman's reflection. My third film for the sixth UWA theme-based machinima challenge: "Reflections." In all three I've attempted to play on this word "reflect," and in so doing expose different and intensely personal trials in human relationships and ways to surmount them. 

This machinima is now part of the L$1.1 Million, MachinimUWA VI: REFLECTIONS, the 6th UWA Short Animated Film Challenge. The theme for MachinimUWA VI is a tribute to the Centenary of the University of Western Australia. Entries for MachinimUWA VI: REFLECTIONS may consist of any storyline that fits the theme of 'REFLECTIONS.' At least ONE of the 3 'Spaces of Reflection' on UWA's SL SIMS (the Sunken Gardens, the Somerville Auditorium or the Reflection Pond) must be clearly shown in the story.

Special prizes are also offered for machinima that best portray one or a few of the artworks entered in UWA Centenary 3D Art Challenge: REFLECTIONS

MachinimUWA VI: Haveit Neox, EJ Nussbaum & Erythro Asimov

 
Haveit Neox's 'Lost Alphabet of La Citta Perduta'

 
Edward/Joseph Nussbaum's 'Ike R Us'

 
Erythro Asimov's 'Huracan - Love is Strong'

MachinimUWA VI entries top 30 as we enter the final 10 days of the challenge! Haveit Neox takes us on an epic of the imagination through the 'Lost Alphabet of La Citta Perduta', Edward/Joseph Nussbaum explores reflections of the inner self with 'Ike R Us' and we have more from Erythro Asimov with 'Huracan' featuring Inga Bourlier's wonderful soundtrack 'Love is Strong'.

These machinima are now part of the L$1.1 Million, MachinimUWA VI: REFLECTIONS, the 6th UWA Short Animated Film Challenge. The theme for MachinimUWA VI is a tribute to the Centenary of the University of Western Australia. Entries for MachinimUWA VI: REFLECTIONS may consist of any storyline that fits the theme of 'REFLECTIONS.' At least ONE of the 3 'Spaces of Reflection' on UWA's SL SIMS (the Sunken Gardens, the Somerville Auditorium or the Reflection Pond) must be clearly shown in the story.

Special prizes are also offered for machinima that best portray one or a few of the artworks entered in UWA Centenary 3D Art Challenge: REFLECTIONS
