Burning Life 2009

From Chantal Harvey ... (music Patrick Faith)

What is Burning Life? It is the virtual spin-off from Burning Man, the grand happening that takes place once a year in the American desert.

Lindenlabs provides 34 servers, read: sims, and people apply or claim a piece of land to express their art, or to build their vision on a party venue.

Philip Rosedale aka Philip Linden is said to have gotten his idea for a virtual world while participating in Burning Man.

I was visiting this years Burning Life in Second Life, and was invited to become a hot stilt bitch.... thus transforming into a beautiful avatar and outfit, wearing stilts and juggling fire.

There is no beginning, where to go, there is so much to see (read: film). Then, I ran into iono Allen, who does virtual tours (Art Department), and he took me to some wonderful installations on BL.

Yoko Ono will be inworld in Second Life on Friday (John Lennon's birthday) , where she will unveil the "Imagine Peace Tower" sim as a virtual representation of the ongoing project. This short documentary tells you a bit more.

IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. It is situated on Viðey Island in Reykjavík, Iceland. The artwork was dedicated to John by Yoko at its unveiling on October 9th 2007, John Lennons 67th birthday.

IMAGINE PEACE TOWER symbolizes Lennons and Onos continuing campaign for world peace - which began in the sixties, was sealed by their marriage in 1969 and will continue forever.

The words IMAGINE PEACE are inscribed on the Well in 24 different languages.

IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is composed of a tall shimmering tower of light that will appear every year and be visible from October 9th (Johns birthday) until December 8th (the anniversary of his passing).

In addition, the Tower will illuminate from Winter Solstice (December 21st 28th), on New Years Eve (December 31st) and the first week of spring (March 21st -28th). It is lit from 2 hours after sunset until midnight, and until dawn on New Years Day.

On 9th October, John Lennons birthday, Yoko Ono asks the people of Iceland to join her and many others across the rest of the world in praying for peace and stability.

At 8pm, as IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is illuminated on the island of Viðey, in Reykjavik, Iceland, she asks everyone to join together and let the power of light and prayer become a collective expression of the desire for peace and harmony on our planet.
