Interview with ᴛᴇᴍᴘᴇsᴛ ʀᴏsᴄᴀ-ʜᴜɴᴛsᴍᴀɴ (tempest.rosca)

SLE: Hi Tempest, it is a pleasure to interview you about the Resolution Exhibition. Before we get into the collection of art being showcased, I’d like to learn a little bit about you. What brought you to Second Life?

Tempest:  Hello Lanai ! Thank you so much and it's wonderful to hear from you!  What brought me to SL?  Well, it was a super long time ago, back in May 2007 when I received an email from Sky News asking if I would be interested in current affairs and new stories within a virtual world!  I'm not a natural gamer, so I'm not part of the gamer culture but I thought Second Life sounded interesting and I thought I would give it ago!  I'm still here (give or take a few breaks!) so I guess you could say I liked it!

SLE: The arts and photography in SL is very popular because it allows photographers from all over the world to showcase their work on a global scale. What inspired you to get involved in the art community?

Tempest: I've exhibited with Kultivate in the past (back in 2015) and it was something I really enjoyed but my photography then took a turn and focussed predominantly on fashion/blogging which means that you are limited creativity wise as you, of course, want to show off the designers creations in the right manner.  However, when I gave up blogging back in 2019 my work started to take on much more of the creative vision I had been missing.  Being involved with Kultivate has ignited my passion for all things artistic and John has of course contributed to that, encouraging me and pushing me outside of my comfort zone - and I have to say I'm loving the challenge and this opportunity!

SLE: Aside from the arts in SL, you are also a big part of Kultivate Magazine and charities,  can you tell our readers about the events you are involved in that raise money for charity?

Tempest:  Kultivate is the official media partner for Team Diabetes of Second Life, the official and authorised team of the American Diabetes Association.  Their season will return in October and I'm looking forward to working with the charity this year, as it will be my first time participating behind the scenes with Team Diabetes!  You can learn more about Team Diabetes and their events by visiting their website:

SLE: The Resolution Exhibition is one of monthly art installations you curate. Can you share with our readers more about this event. Do you handpick the artists you showcase?

Tempest:  Resolution has been a dream of mine for a long time - I've been running various groups within FLICKR which recognise (in my opinion) exceptional photographer/graphic talent so I've always fangurled various artists and applauded their work.  Kultivate has given me the opportunity to take that further and to bring  'Resolution' exhibition to showcase some of these exceptional creators.

SLE: Why the name Resolution Exhibition? Can you explain the theme?

Tempest: There is no theme for the exhibition at all - the only request is for the exhibitors to showcase their best work and whilst we encourage new items it's not a necessity.  The Resolution name came from the photography aspect, as a keen photographer in real, I thought this would be a suitable name for exhibition.  Formal definition is: - Image resolution is the detail an image holds. The term applies to raster digital images, film images, and other types of images.  

SLE: Can you give us a scoop on the next events to come?

Tempest: Whilst the summer is quieter for Kultivate, we still look to give opportunities to artists at our galleries across the sims so it's best to keep watch on the calendar on the web site under the 'Upcoming Events'  :  .   Of course we have Team Diabetes starting in October mentioned above.  To keep with the British theme and our love of beer!, we also have a  pub and new gallery called "The Mad Mare and Dene Art Gallery" where we showcase artists in the pub each month.  However, we have live music every Monday at 3pm slt and DJ set/trivia at 4pm slt and on Wednesdays DJ/trivia from 4pm to 6pm slt.  So come and join us!!  It's so much fun :)  - more info here:  

SLE: How can artists and photographers get involved in your monthly events?

Tempest:  We love new talent and would encourage anyone who's interested in Kultivate or any of our galleries to take a look at the website for opportunities  .  We have many events, especially at the The Mad Mare Pub, so we would love to welcome everyone to come visit and hang out with us.  It's so much fun and we're a friendly bunch !!   However, if anyone would love to know more about opportunities then feel free to drop us IM/NC or message us on facebook.

SLE: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Tempest: Art is different for everyone, I realise that now more than ever.  We all see things differently, we all like different things, we can all relate to pieces of work in different ways. Kultivate and the team there work tirelessly to create something special for the SL art community and, whilst I'm very new into the fray of the art world here and coming from a flickr/blogging/fashion background, I completely adore the people that surround me in this world.  Everyone I've met has made me so very welcome and I just adore being part of this community.  Of course, none of this would be possible without John's backing and encouragement - I have so much to thank him for, especially for introducing me to this wonder world - I look forward to what the future may hold !
