Where Have You Been? — A New Season

We’re pleased to announce the start of the third series of our orig­i­nal pro­gramme, “Where Have You Been?”, where we dis­cuss places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life grid — and we try to ensure they’re usu­al­ly things and places that the major com­men­ta­tors miss.

WYB” airs every Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic / SLT, and each episode is broad­cast over a cou­ple of weeks. And don’t miss “Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity” from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton, every four hours from 4am Pacific.

Our des­ti­na­tions gen­er­al­ly fall into one of three cat­e­gories: Art, Explo­ration and Events. In the first episode of the new sea­son, it’s the first of those, as we take a trip over to GBTH, aka “Grab By The Horns”  — a vir­tu­al visu­al arts incu­ba­tor in Sec­ond Life, found­ed in Octo­ber 2017 by Mari­na Münter. 

GBTH nur­tures a wide vari­ety of artis­tic for­mats from the vir­tu­al world of art as found in Sec­ond Life. It’s locat­ed on a Full 30K region which is divid­ed into parcels for bet­ter con­trol of envi­ron­ment set­tings and land­ing points to sup­port the indi­vid­ual art instal­la­tions and ele­ments of the island.

We also take a look at Mün­ter’s own exhi­bi­tion, “Non-Per­ish­able”, which con­sists of ready-made objects assem­bled in a way that explores colour asso­ci­a­tions and the emo­tion­al con­nec­tions that peo­ple make with objects.

GBTH is also a part of the Com­mu­ni­ty Gate­way Pro­gram, which allows com­mu­ni­ties or groups the oppor­tu­ni­ty to assist new res­i­dents in begin­ning their jour­ney into Sec­ond Life, and lend a guid­ing hand in the cre­ation of their new avatar personas.
