Van Gogh – another take, another world

Posted by jerry on July 18th, 2007 — Posted in Journal, New media

Many will have been to the SecondLife in-world 3D sim of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, but Robbie Dingo has taken us a step further into the creative process with a machinima video in which he takes us through the process of building such an environment to good effect. Pity about the overused Don McLean song though.

I particularly liked the re-treatment of the village windows to move from a day to night representation. Interestingly, you won’t find this sim in SL anymore – it was built in a temporary space and has since been deleted, leaving only the movie – a true simulacrum: a representation of a representation when the original has been erased. Thanks to Sharon for the SLURL link to the 3D world version, and to Angela Thomas for the steer to Robbie Dingo’s site 🙂

Cheers
Jerry
