Nishi Mip's "Umbrellas"

University of Western Australia just held their UWA 3D Art and Design competition. Allowing the people to choose their favorite artists and giving them awards, UWA encourages artists in Second Life to create digitally what can only be done here.
Nishi Mip art at UWA, my second favorite!

My very favorite was Nishi Mip's works. Her "Umbrellas" was the People's Choice 1st Place Award, but I also loved her other piece with the robots housed inside a strange orange cubicle of programmed lights. What a remarkable artist she is!

Another favorite was Uby Ifu's "Tristan Areless" avatar. Amazingly real, as real as an avatar can be; the piece made me smile.

With the arts suffering world wide from a lack of government and consumer support due to economic woes, I was glad to see that education and UWA step in to support the artists here.
