The University of Western Australia (UWA) once again organized an art contest, The UWA Centenary 3D Art Challenge, run in tribute to the 2013 Centenary of the University of Western Australia, as UWA reflects on its 100 years of existence and ponders the question of what the next 100 years will bring.
Many renowned artists in Second Life (SL) are present, among which LnL's co-owner, London Junkers with his impressive piece "Reflections - Through the Eyes of UWA".
In the words of the artist himself,
"100 years of knowledge, 100 years of wisdom, 100 years of love and care, of joy and growth. Over 100.000 graduates have witnessed the greatness of UWA. Others , like me, have touched its beauty in a virtual manner.
The piece represents the view of those who travel the path of UWA, past, present and future, in the form of an eye.
This is the eye that sees it all, the eye that let us see the advantages of education, discipline and belief. The eye that silently guides us through the darkness of ignorance, and let us reflect what is good and what is not. Inside the eye, UWA, helping us, bringing the light and enriching our life. In the back of the capsule, the nerves, transmit what is learned to the future generations, like propellers pushing the capsule through the fragile fabric of space and time.Congratulations to UWA, for the great effort. And thanks specially for letting me participate and express my gratitude to the project. Best of wishes, and see you in 100 years ;-))
This 57 prims unscripted piece, massive-sized, yet unexpectedly elegant, is walkable; you may climb the ramp and walk inside the UWA eye. Well done, London!
