Regi Yifu is a Second Life artist who is currently staging the Eiffelicious Photo Contest. I had the good fortune to talk to Regi about the contest.
Dean : Why did you choose the Eiffel Tower as the subject of this photo contest?
Regi : I actually created this Eiffel Tower for a 2 hour Best of SL Fashion week in Paris. But It was such a nice build I wanted to share it with more people. So I applied for a LEA sim grant. In early December they contacted me and asked me if I was still interested in having the sim. I said YES!!! We then had a huge New Years Eve Party under the Eiffel Tower with over 300 visitors! The tower will be on the LEA7 sim until February.
Dean : What are the rules to this contest?
Regi : TAKE A PHOTO OF THE TOWER AND SEND IT FULL PERM TO REGI YIFU. WINNER WILL BE MARKED IN THE INTERACTIVE GALLERY ON THE LEA7 SIM ON JAN 31st.
Dean : Could you tell me about the interactive art gallery?
Regi : I created an interactive Light Gallery. It is all created with light. Set your windlight to AMBIENT DARK to best view. Wear the items provided so you can see yourself in the dark. Collide with the signs to see red, green, and blue images combine into a full color image submitted for the contest. With limited space only the best photos received will be shown. http://maps.secondlife.
Dean : Is there anything you would like people to know about you or the Eiffel Tower display at LEA7?
Regi : The Tower is 5000 prims and was built in 10 hours. Feel free to fly around and check it out. There are some flying snowflakes to use on the tip top! Have fun! Enjoy the wonders of Second Life!
