Grand Finale: UWA 3D Open Art Challenge

Once again the University of Western Australia’s Second Life presence has pulled off a brilliant Art Challenge, and for the second year in a row I’ve had the privilege of being a judge. This year there were a lot more entries, making the judging both more challenging and more fun. It also showcases the improvements to Second Life as far as the detail of art works submitted.

You can check out the list of finalists below, but first here’s a few visual snippets that stood out for me during the judging (click on image for the full size version):

Have a look for yourself – it’s a few hours very well spent.

Once again I’d like to thank the UWA’s Jayjay Zifanwe for the chance to play a small role in what remains one of the pre-eminent virtual worlds art installations in the world.
