Simploring 2017 (52) No Frontiers

For simploring Thursday, June 29th, I checked the Second Life Destination guide  and selected another LEA sim, LEA 16
“No Frontiers is an LEA immersive installation where you can pilot spacecrafts among large halls displaying high resolution sci-fi fractal frames by artist Gem Preiz. The trip will lead you to planets and stars after flying among colorful creations, surreal alien worlds and futuristic space bases.

Upon your landing you can grab 2 notecards with information about the art installation and about the artist Gem Preiz. There’s also a guide how to set your environment. Then you choose a vehicle, a space ship and begin your discovery. From the landing a tube leads into the isntallation itself, you fly through the tube to a box and at the wall you look at when you enter the box is a one high resolution futuristic science fiction picture, the box itself is filled with geometrical objects, which move and change and add another dimension to the picture at the wall. From the box another tube leads to the next box. I didn’t count the boxes, according to the notecard there’re 16. And each box is an expereince on it’s own. Flying the space ship is fun and getting these views was simply great. The journey ends in open space where planets and objects float in space.

No Frontiers by Gem Preiz is closed now unfortunately, I made it there on one of the last days. But once again I found a different way to present art and I learend about another artists playing with the possibilities of Second Life. Gem has a long list of exhibitions within Second Life and had several installations within the LEA program already. He’s educated in science and mathematics and and according to himself he enjoys the diversity of shapes and colors as a reflection of Nature’s one. Well, I can’t describe his work any better. No Frontiers was just great to see and I will look out for more art from Gem Preiz, thank you Gem!

No landmark this time as the installation is already closed unfortunately. I hope you got at least an impression of it by the pictures I took.
