I just returned from a packed opening at The Blue Orange Art Corner. This vibrant art and music venue, put together by artist Ini Inaka, introduces today art by Theda Tammas, Indigoclaire, Miu Miu Miu, Eupalinos Ugajin, and Igor Ballyhoo (see his sculpture Sacrificed Angel above) and music is provided by DJs Gitu Aura, Khaz Rotaru and Niels Koolhoven. Ini notes about her place that [a]t first it was an idea to mix urban style with something classy and create bohemian underground music club where people could hear a lot of different music styles, starting from underground alternative, industrial, grunge, indie, noise, psychedelic, folk punk and ending with jazz, neo-folk, instrumental and classical music. Sure counting in a lot of music without labels and maybe not very popular music as well. Later came an idea to invite creative people who would be happy to share love for art, this how they understand art, how they express themselves and to show how second life as virtual place let to us share it. Photos, drawings, paintings, 3D installations and much more as SL is amazingly open and full of tools to do this. I was very happy to find and invite such music lovers or SL Djs who were glad to help to me to express and create bohemian mood in club. This is a great and welcomed addition to the SL art scene and I am very much looking forward to future events.
