With the Freedom Project and his Global 3D Art & Machinima competition, JayJay Zifanwe and the University of Western Australia in Second Life encourage people to express themselves through their stories via art and machinima created in Second Life. Recently, WAtoday wrote an article about JayJay’s incredible Second Life re-creation of the UWA’s Crawley physical campus - showing how this virtual space created a ripple effect - impacting the lives of people who could otherwise only dream of visiting such a place. The UWA in SL serves as the home base for artists and others to come together and participate in many projects.
In this episode of the Drax Files, artists discuss the process of self-expression through artistic creativity in Second Life, and JayJay shares insights on some of the ways this medium has empowered people in unexpected ways. Watch the video
