Strange and Beautiful Art in Machinima

Aqualung and Bonobo set the mood for machinima

Our latest experimental music video machinima come after an online hiatus since our Radiohead inspired attempt at Furillen.

This first one features Collagesity by collage artist baker Bloch. Spread across several buildings on Mainland’s Minoa, Collagesity has transformed the area into an intriguing digital collage, made up of multiple series which continue to grow. Aqualung’s “Strange & Beautiful” makes for an interesting if unexpected pairing:

More recently, the fantastic Da Vinci Workshop at Burn2 caught the camera eye. With so much creativity and playful artwork to experience, Burn2 is a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere that was a pleasure to film. The theme corresponded with Burning Man’s 2016 Da Vinci Workshop. The participants came up with some wonderful installations inspired by their digital canvas of cracked desert. Bonobo’s “Kiara” -from their album Black Sands- merges electric vibes with smooth strings, and in this context turns into a little nod to the man of science and musical inventions:

Finally, here are 2 more machinima artists you might want to check out:

Pearl Grey portrays a refreshingly honest narrative of her virtual experiences. Eupalinos Ugajin offers conceptual ideas in absurdly playful presentations. Both express a creative depth and personal aesthetic that shows off the possibilities of machinima.


What is Cyberart?

A question that inspires an entire immersive project at LEA12. Asmita Duranjaya and Sable Snakeappletree explore the term “Cyberart” through thoughtful debate and complex layers of text, images, sounds, and space. Their “Paradise of CyberPolis” not only contains examples of multiple artists work, but are at the same time contained by artwork as the sim itself is a creative installation, and immersive narrative game in itself. Together these elements provoke a curiosity towards how cyberart is understood and experienced.

I think of “Cyberart” as a creative process, or event, that happens when man meets machine, that creative dance that emerges as the two collide, online, intertwining in an intermedial space that is experienced uniquely for each of us. Cyberart is open to our feedback and reflection, and to our collective collaboration, manifesting into the most subtle discrepancies or into a significantly alternative experience.

Cyberart, as a term and a creative practice, is perceived and expressed differently through the imagination of these artists, who are currently exhibiting their answers to Asmita Duranjaya’s question at LEA12:



Gracie Kendal’s Bloom, at LEA22, originally titled “Ce n’est pas encore une peinture.

“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.” 

Chuck Palahniuk – Choke

Pact with Destiny - Blackout Poem Paper

Pact with Destiny (A Blackout Poem)

Pact with Destiny

-A Blackout Poem-

We evolve through, and with the changes of our lives. We discover an underlying potential, and extend our awareness of who we are, reaching beyond that fickle surface of our reality, as it appears in the present moment. That is the narrative we read, and write of ourselves.

Pact with Destiny

I should have

the life I have,

stormy and turbulent,

but always reaching..
