Digital artlife

Anna Lorentzson art and design

  • Haul to Linkoping

    Another trip. The graphics in this game is amazing. It is so nice to just drive and look at the landscape. Volvos's soon to be delivered. It is all in a days work.

  • A new server for the Developer grid and expanding virtual life.


    Finally I have had some time to get the devgrid up and running again. I have had a lot of art related work to do the last months and I have also been exploring new community's like the Flight simulator guys. I suppose they do thousands of flights every day and are a great example on how virtual life really can expand your mind and life.


    I do some flying for Scandinavian VA. (virtual airline).

    The Fly guys have made me believe in the future of virtual worlds now when Second life getting smaller and smaller. I have also been to There world and it is nothing like it used to be but more and more people find the way in to it.

    The big thing is of course Facebook buying Oculus. I am not so sure this is such a great idea. I feel like the developers on Oculus know something I do not. Maybe the thing is not usable. But I have to buy a Rift devkit sooner or later just to find out.

    I have been very busy but know I find that it have been a good thing to take a break from Opensim and SL. I have a lot of new ideas and as I am a virtual pilot I do not have to focus on finding scripts to my SL vehicles anymore.

    My gallery and devgrid needs me. Nice to be back.

  • Avatarfest build. The Lions.


    I am ready with my build for this years Avatarfest.


    This is wrote

    As a artist it is nice to do new things sometime. I have done many exhibitions with prims so this is new for me.
    I wanted to do a mesh project. With bones and and a lot of different 3D software. I am working on a bigger Opensim project and realized that mesh is probably the way forward. So this is a test to see if i could do a art project like this.


    The reason for the lions is that i am working with some lion heads in clay in my real life studio. Inspired by the lion heads in Galas mausoleum outside Barcelona. Loved them when i was there few years ago. So when you work with a shape it is nice to get it over to the Opensim world and try to explore it further.”


    It is still a few day to go before the fest. Hypergridding

  • Star trekking on Tangle grid.

    Visited Tangle grid. Kling Kingdom. 4 sim medeival sim with a lot of castles. Nice build and big. I go in my Star Trek uniform these days i am a explorer you know.

  • Friday party at the OSGrid

    opensimp The hypergrid amazes me once again. 24 people now on event plaza and it works. Pretty great.
  • Using Wordpress now and the blog lives on.


    Visited Wright Plaza today on the Hypergrid.

    Happy about the new solution for the blog as I have had it for such a long time. The reason for moving is that I just do not think that Google should use my name in all their apps.

    It is not a anonymous thing. Cyber is totally connected to my real name anyway but in RL I am the fine artist Anna and Cyber is the CEO of my game company and also the explorer of virtual worlds and the net. There is a difference and I think that should be my choice.

    Yes you can use any name you want on Google+ but it was surprisingly difficult to change it to my avatar form. And I could suddenly not use Blogger with all functions. I was working for 2 days with it then gave it up.


    It is not a big deal I run a lot of websites so this is a good solution. Always wanted to use Wordpress again and I can see that security is beefed up these days.

    So welcome to my old blog.

  • i am leaving Google

    Yes i am leaving Google. I just do not like that they are using my real name.
    And as i see it i cant do much about it. So this blog will be gone, And my youtube and may mail and everything else.

    it is terrible that you cant control what should be shown.
    I have been writing a lot for myself and if anyone was looking in that was great.

    It will take some time as this account really is intergrated in my life. I have a android phone and a pad. And i have been using this for a long time.

    But i do not think it is ok to use my name and personal information on the web without my control.

    Yes i am loosing my facebook to.

    Maybe i will live my life out of the web. BUT i will keep all my Second life accounts and i will be on the hypergrid where i have control.

    See you inworld guys,
  • Clubs in SL

    I have been exploring the metaverse to find cool clubs and really nothing. Send me some info on your favourite to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • A mall i like.

    It is not often i find a mall build i like. They are often terrible. But this one got one of my best rules. It should be fun to walk around and explore.



    And someone been thinking about the stores to. Not just a lot of pictures stacked on top of each other.

    And there are also some nice places to sit and take a break.

    Taking a break and waiting for my espresso.


    I would like to see more malls like this one.

  • Transfer from Second life to Cloud party.


    This is Nilsart gallery in Second life. It is a nice build and I like it. Now I wanted to test if I could transfer it to Cloud party. First I moved it to my developer grid. It runs Opensim. No problem there. Still looks nice.


    Then I exported it with the Singularity viewer to a dae file and imported it in to Blender. Did a heavy reduction of faces and uploaded it to Cloud party. On the left it is in Cloud party. Here I stumbled on the finishing line as Cloud party did not let me place it. The mesh was still to big. But it is possible to do it.

    Next to solve is textures. I check that out later.

  • A fast hypergrid trip to Francogrid.


    First: Love the hypergrid and I did not lose my shoes this time. Why do you lose the shoes and not the hair? Metaverse riddle.

    Nice place and I just super like the fishing boats far in the distance. That is a kind of focusing at detail I like as a builder. It is a French grid but nobody tried to talk to me. Me and my French teacher long ago, agreed I probably will never learn it. Worth a trip.

  • Opensim conference: Impressions

    So the conference is over.After listening to cute stuff, tech stuff and mind blowing stuff. What to bring home?

    The conference itself? It is not the same to be there as it is listening to a stream. You can comment, wooot things and generally be there. The feeling is different and that’s a good thing. Virtual world actually works. At lest for me and as we heard for about 40% of the rest of the population.

    A side from the tech stuff we also have another thing in common. English. We can talk and listen to each other. English is not my first language so I do not care if I sometimes make a few mistakes. I can communicate. That’s the thing.


    Listening to Pathfinder

    The tech stuff worked aside from some small glitches but who have been to a conference without tech problems. It is a part of the package, it is ok when people are nice about it and everybody been really nice.

    I wanted to listen to as much as I could. I heard about the business side, learning, tech, simulating cities and military. Some more philosophical talks on why we use the metaverse (yes I used that word). But I missed my special interest . Art. Maybe I have to do that one myself for another year.

    I liked that many talks was nice to Second life. There is really no competition. I think Second life and Opensim are different sides on the same coin. But Linden lab is a company and need a good business idea, As many Opensim grid owners, money is needed to run the worlds we visit. But I wonder if Linden lab and Second life will be around in 10 years. I think Opensim will. I visited Active worlds some time ago, First time I visited I used a modem and the internet was just starting up. It shows that the Open source idea could help software to survive and evolve. There may be another conference in 10 years.

    Never heard a thing about Cloud party. I think people from Cloud party and Linden lab should be invited would be interesting to hear what they have to say. But maybe they do not want to.

    There was a lot of talk about the Hypergrid and of course the Hypergrid I seriously cool. This is a game changer. I want to own my stuff on my computer not I some other peoples servers. I think I have to put some of the dev grid on the Hypergrid. Thinking.


    So in the true spirit of the Hypergrid I went over to the OSgrid for some official after party. Listened to live music and chatting away.People where coming and going and someone said that we where 36 at most moving around, dancing and no chat lag. Just had to ask. We were running on a 4 core Windows server, with 2 gb of ram I think. I do not really remember because it was getting late and I am a old person.

    So the impression that stands out is that it really worked well. Maybe it is time to go to Beta. LOL.

    We joined in from all over the world under a common interest and made it something to really remember.

  • Opensim conference:What to wear.


    I visited the grid today and I realized I have nothing to wear to the dance. I have a lot of cool clothes on the Second life grid but they cant be moved so I have to do some uploads of some old clothes I made years ago. Naked is not an option.

    I still think that we should be able to use the things we have bought on any grid. I want to own my avatar everywhere in any virtual world and the stuff I have paid for. There got to be a solution of rights. I want a bigger hyper grid!

  • Opensim conference:Looking good.

    Conf grid


    We are coming up to the weekend of the

    I have been visiting the grid a few times now and everything look really good.

    Yesterdays load test also worked ok. Many avatars and the chat did not break.

    Me and all the other guys. I wanted more hippoes, but not.

    Starting to look forward to it.

  • My winter studio

    My winter studio

    It is soon time to move in to the house. As winter comes my studio gets colder and colder. I have a mini studio inside on wheels so i can follow the light when i paint. Sorry to say it is soon time to start using it.

    Winter lots of white. Did i buy more?
