Check out Milena Carbone's Living Picture!

Milena Carbone has set up a unique dance experience at The Carbone Studio which will be available for viewing 24 hours for seven days.

"Living Picture" is an art experience in Second Life that combines a short contemporary music video piece and a dance sequence in SL of one or more avatars in phase shift. The video and dance sequences run in a loop, 24 hours a day during 7 days, in world at The Carbone Studio.

Milena calls this technique "phase dancing" in tribute of the "phase music" created by Steve Reich and Terry Riley in the 1960s/70s.

The dance sequence (7'30'') is shorter than the video sequence (9'30''). Thus, no matter when the spectator watches the show, the sequence is unique. It attempts to create an artistic moment which will never be reproduced again.

Check out a small preview of this dance performance:

As such, Milena has created in Second Life, in an automatic way, the equivalent of the RL live show that is the theater, the opera or the ballet.

We would advise you to use Shared Environment, enable Advanced Lighting Model and set Shadows to Sun/Moon + Projectors for the best experience.
