Wizzy gets chatty

Now when Wizzy isn't sitting on things or crashing sims as a hobby she builds some of the most amazing geometrical thingies you are ever likely to see....

If you have no idea what a Klein Bottle is, well, don't's a like Escher gone 3D, or a madder Penrose Triangle..... basically a geometric thingie that fuses your brain/eye co-ordination into a mushy mess.

...anyway....that is all beside the point, basically, Wizzy is giving a talk...the details are......

"What: Burniversity Lecture with Wizard Gynoid: Precision Art Sculpture

When: Feb 22nd 6pm SLT (Pacific)


About the Lecture:

This lecture is meant to be an educational session for intermediate builders. We will be talking about one of the most technically difficult art styles - Mathmatical Art!
Wizard will rez for us a few complex objects and explain how they were created. The techniques of building these precision art sculptures are difficult and take a long time to acqure. In this lecture Wizard will discuss how scripts can be used as tools to make the building of your geometric objects much more precise.

About Wizard Gynoid:

Wizard Gynoid, or " Wizzy" as many friends affectionately call her, has been one of the most known SL artists.

Wizard has works on permanent exhibition at PrimTings, the Museum of Virtual Art, and Galleria Bollogia.
She has participated in many SL art shows and exhibitions, and will be participating in Caerleon's upcoming RL art show in Boston.

M Linden (the Linden Lab CEO) has some of her sculptural works in his private collection:

She has a workshop at the Caerleon Art Collective (courtesy of Georg Jannick).

Her skills and passion for creating 3D versions of abstract mathmatical art won her respect and recognition outside of Second life. Some of the sculptures she has made here in SL have been demonstrated to astrophysicists at California Institute of Technology, physicists at Los Alamos National Laboratory, faculty and staff at the University of Michigan, the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University, and Theatre and Technology students at St. Lawrence University, and many others.

About the Burniversity:
The Burniversity is an educational project - collaboration between Linden Lab, Burning Life and Burning Man organizations
