When I was very young we went to the family's summer home every week. On weekends you could go on a steam train.( No I am not THAT old it was a enthusiast thing). So I started to love trains.

Me outside the studio thinking about things.
A friend of the family where a part time pilot. I have spent many hours playing in the planes and hangar, and when I was about seven he let me fly a plane for the first time. I could not reach the pedals on the small Cessna but did some real steering. So I started to love planes.

I am not a train driver or pilot. life goes in its own directions but thru simulated reality I have spent hours flying all over the world and thanks to some crazy people that have built a long part of Sweden for Train simulator I have got the feel for what it could be like to drive a real train.


Now I am going skiing in one of France best downhill ski areas. I was there last year and I was tired beyond what is humanly possible. I realize that very soon I cant go skiing like that anymore. It makes me sad that one day I cant ski at all.


But maybe if I can create and develop the virtual reality I can get a feel for skiing again. I have been flying and driving trains so why not skiing. And so many other people can get the feel for all sorts of things. It is not all about slaying monsters or kill people. I think virtual can be so much more.

During my first years in Second life I met so many people that when you got to know them had all kinds of physical, sociological and psychological disabilities.

And the virtual world made their lives better. I have also met a lot of people from all over the world and found many of us think the same we just need a meeting place.


Virtual worlds can make the world in to a better more exciting place and that’s why I have made it a part of my work.

Another one of the new one sim builds as art.

Second life Ghostville

It is very nice when a artist gets a sim to do stuff in. Maybe this one could contain some more stuff or it is the spaces that are the thing. See for your self.

 

You can now transfer your objects to your game system from Second life and Opensim.
A nice video from John Lester explained it to me today and I just tried it out.

Here is the link to John Lesters Youtube video.

caledon_001

I often go exploring when I run out of ideas for new work and Caledon is a great place to see other types of builds. It is themed and have a lot of good builders.

Just loved this lion.

Drawing of exhibition


Planning drawing

 

We are at the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013. More to read at http://conference.opensimulator.org/2013/

 

The exhibition stall is already on the conference grid.

 

Looks good and it is made very low poly and a few texures to realy speed up download.

Hope to see you there.

 

conference exhib

The exhibition stall looks nice now so now I can do something else for a few days. Then it is sign work.

 

And it is morning once more at the dev grid. I am building the new exhibition for the Opensim conference. 2worlds2go will be there. http://conference.opensimulator.org/2013/ .

I want to do a great build and i hope i have time for it.

So lets start building!

 

3dsketch_001

I am doing some 3D sketching on the dev grid to find out how to use the space we will have on the Opensim conference. http://conference.opensimulator.org/2013/

I think after this there is a possibility that Opensim finally grow up to become something in it´s own right. I have already chatted with avatars that are professionally using Opensim for education and business.

More to come..
