Ivy Lane - Speech at the Second Life Convention in Boston

My Friend Ivy Lane!

Hey All,

How's it going?

Check out my friend and patron (Provocative Arts Gallery and Provocative Designs ), Ivy Lane's speech (just click on the title of this article for the link or here ) made during the SL Convention in Boston just a couple of weeks ago. Ivy along with her partner Phil Metalhead (whom I also express great thanks to) are the owners of Provocative Arts where my show Best in Purple is housed.

Twenty percent of the sales in that gallery go to benefit the Pixel To Pixel Foundation in Second Life which provides a stipend of 500L/week (which is a lot in SL terms!) to those from any country applying to the organization who are receiving a disability in Real Life. The head of this group is Jadyn Firehawk, if you require information or would like to make an application or contribution.

This agency runs entirely on donations. Here's an article from the Harrisburg Second Life Examiner about her and the org . Ivy Lane acts as an assistant to Jadyn in this project. Pixel To Pixel Foundation is a sister to the group The Hope Village which provides free housing, also for people with a disability in RL. Speaking for myself here - this is greatly appreciated by starving artists like me! Thanks to Ivy, I am where I am in Second Life today due to the fortune of meeting her. My exhibit Best in Purple in her gallery is dedicated to her. There are many other folks benefitting from this program who would not be able to have this kind of life in SL.

It's about semiotics:

"se·mi·ot·ics also se·mei·ot·ics (sm-tks, sm-, sm-)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The theory and study of signs and symbols, especially as elements of language or other systems of communication, and comprising semantics, syntactics, and pragmatics."

The Free Dictionary

AND Second Life!!!

Wow, what a great and unifying way to look at Second Life!
