Primtings - A Museum of 3d "Primmed Paintings": An Overview

  1. 1. A Museum of 3d “Primmed” Paintings An Overview
  2. 2.  Primtings Museum is a “primmed paintings” gallery.  “We are a museum dedicated to the interactive exploration of famous paintings and artwork brought to virtual life via 3d prims and other techniques.”  Origins  Founded & Created by Ina Centaur in 2008  Exhibits contributed by dozens of SL artists. (Some of whom you’d meet @ the Q&A)  Presentation Outline  Architecture & Infrastructure  Functional Aesthetics of a Virtual Museum  Mission & Purpose  Tour  Outreach  Q&A with Virtually Present Artists!
  3. 3.  Virtual World Functional Efficiency  <500 prims including interior & all signage  Strategic usage of Megaprims to create foundation  Sculpted Prims add additional prim-saving detail  Style  Elegance with flair.  Conveyance of institute, yet low-key.  Varied structure for different sculptures.  Realism with a hint of perpetual sunny days. (Hey, we’re in SL!) >>
  4. 4.  To explore how famous pieces in traditional art can take on a virtual form, in the most direct way—by direct adaption and interpretation, from a number of different SL artists.  To utilize the 3d/interactive element of a virtual world in the creation of an art gallery of old and famous artwork in a new form.  “The role of art is to make a world which can be inhabited.” —William Saroyan  Ultimately, to create worlds “composed” of paintings, so that you might be able to “live” inside one. Or, at least to walk into one…
  5. 5.  Designed to “feel” like an RL museum, where visitors can explore and “stumble upon” an exhibit—but, also with some SL perks:  Each primting has a direct TP LM, with identifying picture.  Some primtings are listed in Search.  Primtings Maps allow for instant TP to location.  Primtings TP Wall has a directory of all primtings, organized by Movement.  Signage Accompanying Each Exhibit:  Guide Sign summarizes details  SL Artist Name  RL Artist Name  Painting Name  Movement (Color-Coded)  Primtings Serial Number  Portrait of 2D/RL “painting”  Artist’s Statement expounds on SL interpretation  has a web directory of all primtings, with photo previews and further contextual information.

  8. 8.  Primtings is a sim-sized museum.  Primtings is staffed by volunteers, but mostly just IC.  Primtings is one of Ina Centaur’s (secretly) favorite pet projects. Like all of her endeavors on SL, it receives no external funding, other than from herself.  Funding/support, however, is always welcome!
  9. 9.  Open Submission  Primtings has a permanent “Call for Artists” bulletin available to prospective prim’ed paintings artists.  25% Acceptance Rate – but Primtings II might come, soon. Funding?  Word of Mouth  We don’t press artists to help publicize, though they’re welcome to.  No active attempts of publicity other than word of mouth!  If you like us, tell a friend (or two, or twenty)!
