The above machinima was put together by DeviSky using all 64 entries in the UWA Reflections art challenge.
UWA continuously puts forth exceptional art build and machinima contests in Second Life with huge prizes including prizes for the winners as well as audience participation awards meaning even if you can't or don't submit artworks to the contests you may win in a large way simply by viewing them and voting for favorites. Plus it's always fun to go over there, as she these large often immersive and interactive builds are cool to see. This selection includes a wide variety of displays and artists from the well known Glyph Graves with all sound movements of a masked dancing couple generated by the interaction between the New York Stock Exchange and the Shanghai Stock Exchange in real time, to the ever impressive media cubes of Thoth Jantzen to a cool sound and particle walk through by Nino Vichan and some you teleport to such as Blue Tsuki's, "Who Are You?" that was fun to see. But most of all be sure you don't miss Carmsie Melodie and Struthious' 3 level "Looking Back" with sound, particles, mesh, and sits with teleport door entry. It's found in the middle panel of exhibits that one teleports up into separate small installation spaces that are larger and immersive.
