2014 ART: VIDEO: The Drax Files: World Makers: interior design magazine in the digital universe

The Drax Files: World Makers: 
interior design magazine in the digital universe
Scroll down for News and Notes (including articles about new TOS)
"Second Life helped me discover what I am good at and what I would like to pursue" says 23-year old Edi Clarity, who runs a successful interior design magazine in the digital universe: "I am not a creator, but I create spaces that hopefully inspire people!"

Edi also met his husband, who hails from Chicago, in SL in 2009 and the two have been together ever since.  The power and agency over identity and the possibility to reveal the true self at one's own pace contributed - according to Edi - to a stable relationship that has been lasting this many years.

Adds Edi: "SL taught be that I can be who I really am, no matter what!"
No doubt, that he [and Rico] can be proud of who they are, in-world or in physical reality.

      The Journal of Virtual Studies currently has a call for papers open.  The journal is peer reviewed and focuses on the use of virtual spaces for knowledge immersion.  Do you work or research in Second Life,  OpenSim or any other virtual platform?  Have you been engaged in research, exploration or reflection when using MMPORG’s?  Have you discovered a virtual space with knowledge immersion possibilities or have you engaged in a fascinating new way to explore the virtual through any number of immersive online applications?    
      These and many other questions are explored by the JoVS.  The Fall 2014 issue is expected to publish in September.  For details, see here: Journal of Virtual Studies 
      The theme is 'TRANSCENDING BORDERS.' Artists & filmmakers can interpret the theme as they see fit. Whether transcending borders between time and space, past and present, one nation and another, one language and another, a culture or civilisation or any other of the innumerable borders that present themselves as we navigate our lives. You the artist... You the machinimatographer...You decide.
