Cape Able Art Gallery - Tucker Stilley.jpg

On Wednesdays from 5:00-7:00pm SLT throughout April and May, there will be guided tours of the Tucker Stilley exhibit on Virtual Ability’s Cape Able Island.

Tucker Stilley is a multimedia artist who was diagnosed with ALS/MND (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) 20 years ago. Now fully paralyzed, he uses his eyes to control his computer and create art at a dizzying pace. Creativity runs in the family; his sister, Kate Stilley Steiner, is a documentary filmmaker and co-founder of Citizen Film. Kate and Tucker created a non-profit called the Cohort of Disembodied Artists as a way to help other artists who use assistive technologies to build a community to support their artwork.

The sibling duo has teamed up with Virtual Ability, an institution of the Second Life community, to present a virtual exhibit of Tucker’s work. Virtual Ability was founded by Gentle Heron in 2007 and has grown into a huge and vibrant community. They describe their vision as “to be the leading provider of services and information for people with disabilities in online virtual worlds.”

Tucker’s bio, available in full at the exhibit, describes him as “born in Santa Ana, California in 1961, and educated in an eclectic patchwork stretching across North America – Stilley is a child of the Space Age – with all the bizarre baggage that entails.” As a ‘distinguished alumni’ of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, he has worked as a media artist, sound designer and film editor over the years as technology has impacted the way we create and experience art. His work has received numerous accolades, with the LA Times describing it as “breathtaking images of the frailty and strength of the human condition.”

Sign up today to attend a guided tour of ‘Palimpsessed,’ Tucker’s new exhibit, curated by Treasure Ballinger. It is available to the public and is sure to give all who attend a bit of much needed inspiration.

Titmouse Event FAQ


Events

5Secday_Banner_1920x1080-3.jpg

Get ready for the Titmouse 5 Second Animation Night, screening 24/7 in a virtual cinema from April 24 through May 24 in Second Life.

PREPARING FOR THE EVENT

Do I need a Second Life account to participate?
Yes. If you are not already a member of Second Life, then sign up for free!

I am already a Second Life member. Do I need to sign up again?
No. You can use your existing Second Life account to participate!

What is Second Life?
Second Life is the Internet’s largest user-created virtual world already experienced by millions of people across the world. Participants can use text and voice chat to socialize, explore, and create together across thousands of unique virtual world experiences and communities. Almost everything you see in Second Life was created by the community! 

How do I get Second Life? Is it safe to download?
Second Life can be downloaded and installed on a PC, Mac or Linux. Once you register, you will automatically be prompted to download the Second Life Viewer. You can also manually download the Viewer directly from the official Second Life website.

Installing Second Life is safe and secure -- it does not contain any spyware. 

Does Second Life work on a mobile device or tablet?
Not officially. While there are some experimental third party Viewers, attendees of this event are strongly encouraged to use a desktop-based Viewer.

Are there any tutorial videos for getting started?
Yes! Check out our New User Video Tutorials on YouTube for tips on customizing your avatar and getting started in Second Life. These are available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Turkish, and Polish.

How do I change my look?

avatar-select2.jpg

The fastest way to change your look in Second Life is via the avatar button. A pop up will appear with several new looks to choose from. Just click any look to instantly transform your avatar. You can watch this tutorial to see how it works.

Feeling more ambitious? You can craft an even more complex avatar if you want to spend a bit of time and money. YouTube has several tutorials that can help. You can also shop for a complete avatar on the Second Life Marketplace.

How do I explore Second Life?

In addition to the special venue created for this event, Second Life is a huge virtual world filled with both public and private experiences including virtual nightclubs, fashion events, art exhibitions, social hangout spots, and much more. Check out the Destination Guide to see a directory of thousands of places. Once you see a virtual world destination you like, you can visit it “inworld” (inside Second Life). 

DURING THE EVENT

titmouse-event-screen.jpg

Do I need to arrive exactly at showtime?
Once you arrive, head to the movie theater where the video presentation should automatically begin to play. If you don't see the video, make sure to toggle the play/pause icon in the upper right of the Second Life Viewer.

How do I join the screening or visit any location in Second Life?
Assuming you have already downloaded, installed, and logged in to Second Life then you should be ready to go! 

The virtual cinema will be open to the general public from April 24 to May 24. To attend any screening, click this link to get the directory listing with the correct virtual world event location. On this page, select “Teleport” or “Visit this Location”

From the web directory, click the “Teleport” button.

teleport.jpg

Alternatively, you can choose “View on map” and then you will see a larger map that shows the location in the context of the entire virtual world. From this screen, you can click proceed by clicking “Visit this location.”

map.jpg

Once clicked, your Second Life Viewer will auto-launch and a pop-up “Place Profile” window will appear inside your Viewer - Select the “Teleport” button to travel to your new destination.

Teleport-Map.jpg

During your teleport, you will see an interstitial screen that looks something like this:

interstitial.jpg

After the teleport is complete, you should be at your new destination! 

My teleport is not working! What do I do?
Sometimes a teleport fails if the destination is offline, private, and/or already at full capacity. If so, you will see a message like this:

fail.jpg

In the case of a high-demand event with limited capacity, there is a good chance that the event is already at its maximum attendance.

capacity.jpg

If this is the case, then you can keep trying to teleport to the location. Once space opens up at the location, you should be able to teleport successfully. 

Please note that some events and locations are popular once they initially open up to the public - so keep trying if you can’t get in on your first try!

How do I smash things in the smash cage in Second Life?
When you enter through the door of the Smash Cage, a random weapon will be automatically attached to you. Simply walk over to the smashables in the center of the cage and click them -- you will hit the object and it will explode! When you leave the cage, the weapon will be automatically detached from you.

How do I control the volume within Second Life?
In the Second Life Viewer, look for the speaker icon in the upper right and hover your mouse over it to expand to a pop-up selector that allows you to change the volume on various audio sources in Second Life. 

volume.jpg

How do I claim my free virtual gifts?
As you enter the party, look for the white-tented booths on your right. Claim your free swag bag at these booths!

swag-bag.jpg

How do I talk to other people in Second Life?
For many events, voice chat is disabled but you can chat with text either privately or publicly to other attendees. To chat, select the Chat button at the bottom of your Viewer. A pop-up will appear where you can type in your text chat.

Someone is harassing me! How do I get them to stop?
You can block anyone by simply right-clicking on any avatar and then select “Block.”
