Hello,

I left Manchester today for Oxford, to check out the universities and get ready for home.

I have secured an in-world residency with Paul Sermon at the Sylgrut Centre in Second Life. This allows me a free space to prototype and develop myt project until I exhibit it in May. I will post the link once its all ready to be seen. I have also applied for a PhD scholarship that m,ay be available at Salford Uni. This would be excellent as it is in SL working with 2 other researchers from different fields.

Liverpool/Preston Visits.

I went to a great party at sandbox yesterday, which is in Preston (North of Manchester). There was catering, an inflatable room and tons of lego! The lego kept me entertained for a good hour! Sandbox is a centre for innovation and creative technology in a brand new building: http://sandbox.uclan.ac.uk/

Preston is about 40 minutes north of Manchester and was well worth the train ride. I went there with Alan, an artist studying at Salford who also works with Second Life, and his partner Rachael, a film lecturer. They were great to hang out with and we’re going to the Bodyworks4 exhibition tomorrow. That’s the plastination exhibition by Gunther von Hagens. Here is an example:body_worlds_aethlos-711322.jpg
