Marie Lauridsen, the Jury’s Grand Prize winner of “The Dr.Muglerstein Machinima Experience” received a bronze-textured trophy, a replica of her virtual avatar
The Art of Metamorphosis
“Doctor Muglerstein’s Island” is a project that was imagined and designed by Mr. Mugler, as a transposition of his extravagant style into a 3D environment that favors all sorts of possible mutations, that generates original ideas and experiments for an artist who has always claimed: “my measure is excess.”
A Community of Artists on Second Life
For its inauguration on Second Life, Doctor Muglerstein’s Island made a call for creativity to all Second Life artists, photographers and cinematographers open from February 7 to March 30, 2008. A total of 30 photos were exhibited and a dozen of machinimas were screened, including La metamorphose by Marie Lauridsen, the winner of the Jury’s Grand Prize.
From Virtual to Reality…
The Jury’s Grand Prize trophy is real-life 3D representation of Marie Lauridsen’s Second Life avatar, a hand-painted bronze-colored resin statue of 10 x 3.5 inches (26 x 9 cm). A technological première in France, which was made possible by a 3D printer that recomposes a file extracted from Second Life layer by layer.
The 3 winners of the photography contest are Amélia Fayray, Moya and Vint Falken, who will receive a large-sized print outs on canvas of their photos.
