Pictures From the Vampire Wedding

Blood was exchanged along with vows at the wedding of vampires Lol555broek Beatty and Jef Tigerpaw. The couple did their ceremony using voice chat, and were surrounded by pale guests in black clothing.

Since the couple’s photographer had to cancel, I got to do the honors for them. I was surprised these photos came out though. I was expecting Lol and Jef to be invisible in pictures like they are in mirrors. ;)

Many excellent artists and not so excellent artists use Second Life as a platform for circulation.

What is wrong and right with Second Life




I got a notecard inviting me to see some interactive art. When I teleport there its a bit of slow lag.

Again the Space MUST MEAN SOMETHING TO THE USER. They must already know how to use the SPACE.

Then I found the paths, they are very cool. You can walk around and explore different artists. A path is an great icon to use in SL, where most people just teleport around. A stroll in a garden of art, great idea, too bad its so hard to move around in Second Life.

Conversations with Nobel Prize winning physicists

Every summer, Nobel Prize winning scientists and young researchers meet on the beautiful Lindau Island in Germany for 5 days of discussion and debate. This year was the turn of the physicists and Nature was there to produce a series of 5 films.

Join us on Thursday 2 October for a special screening as we premiere the first two films.

Dark Matter, Dark Energy
As the world's most powerful particle accelerator starts up, George Smoot (Nobel Prize for Physics 2006) talks to two young scientists about their hopes and dreams for the Large Hadron Collider.

The Quantum Lattice
William Phillips (Nobel Prize for Physics 1997) is excited by the work of PhD student Hannah Venzl as they plan some experiments during a boat trip on Lake Constance.

RSVP is required. Please email us at Missions in Space-Time

The 5 films will be available each week starting 3 October on iTunes and on nature.com

Weddings in Second Life



This is a photo I took in Tel Aviv of a wedding a few days after the 2006 Lebanon war. Thousands of young men were working their way home on buses and taxis, but these guys had time to enjoy a wedding.



The popular Second Life wedding is high on show but utterly empty. Weddings are so dramatic because because they gestures lack the statement. In the classic example the speach act "I declare you man and wife" has a power to establish a union when said in the context of a wedding. In Second Life this declaration is acted out in simulation without the act in the speach acts. That is the acts represent without doing.

In this way one could say that the events are "imaginary". It is a shared imagination of an event, but not anything.

I have seen two kinds of tanks


These photos are from a trip to Northern Israel, on the Lebanon border a few days after the 2006 war.




I have also seen tanks in Second Life.



Though the image might get perfect the effect is very different. Simulation can never dream to tough the intensity of lived experience.
