Surfing around Youtube tonight in the wee hours of the morning and I came across two very strange machinimas from SL that I thought were quite unusual compared to the stuff I normally see posted on Koinup and Youtube. This first video by Asmodea Damianois is just plain strange. In a good way (except for the green text at the end which I am not a fan of). The music is by Corrientes which I had never heard before I saw this. The sound fits the build and particles very well.
The second video below does not have the users in world name anywhere that I can find but I liked the way they blended the RL photographs with the SL footage. In his profile he shares:
"I am interested in challenging the relationship between analogue and digital systems, questioning the notions of materiality and exploring new possibilities of virtual reality media. My practice is engaged with the themes of digital and global systems and the glitches created when these systems meet with the analogue or the everyday.
Extracted film of my self portrait avatar from the virtual reality software Second Life is reinjected into the physical. Questioning materiality and the digital analogue relationship, the work exists on several planes in world where the glitches and performances take place, within a body of physical sculptures and as projections within a real world space which can then recreated by a live performer in real time."
Anyhow! Feel free to leave feedback and tell me about your favorite weird/unusual SL videos. I'd love to see what everyone else is watching. x.X
