To help create “What Second Life can be,” Primtings contributes


to the Prime sLiterary Initiative to bring the arts to virtual worlds
to help make a better virtual world… because art humanizes the
globe.

“The role of art is to make a world which


can be inhabited.” —- William Saroyan
To explore how traditional 2D art can be directly adapted to the virtual
world of Second Life by different SL artists. Primtings presents innova-
tions in virtual world avant-garde art with each exhibit adding more than
just a new 3rd dimension, but often also interactivity, and interpretations
only possible in the virtual world, as envisioned by a range of master new
media artists.

Cel Edman, Dekka Raymaker, Eshi Otawara, Gatz Morang,

To share the wealth of RL art history through famous paintings with SL


residents, in a uniquely SL-way. Primtings educates its visitors in both RL
art and SL artistic techniques, through informative kiosks associated with
each exhibit and Primtings.com website content.

 Thousands of SL residents have experienced Primtings since its


founding in 2008—all through word of mouth!
 RL Schools from K-12 to higher education have brought their
students and faculty to Primtings, through computer lab activi-
ties, on-screen presentations, and extracurricular assignments.
Goal: To raise tier for our island on SL, for the upcoming year
beginning in March 2010.

In Second Life: To be able to expand


each exhibit to an entire sim, such
that one might truly be able to “walk
into the world of a painting”—or live
in one!
.

In “Real Life”: To be able to create an


entire museum of 3d recreations of
2D paintings in “real life.”
From having your name engraved on a wall in the virtual world’s
most formidable art museum to gaining entry to the coolest art pa-
trons’ party on SL to coveting exclusive-access to Primtings Museum...
to getting a real 3d replica of a primting snail mailed to you in RL!
