ALEXANDRA MENSING's Kaleidoscopic Art - OZLAND Visiting Artist January 2010

ALEXANDRA MENSING's Interactive Kaleidoscope Lightworks Art Exhibit in OZLAND

Kaleidoscopes have always facinated Alexandra Mensing and she's been making them since her first day of building in SL. Although her RL home in New England showcases a small collection, in SL she's created hundreds. She loves the combination of randomness and fixed reflections and the balance of science of optics and the esoteric beauty of shifting colors.

Since that first day of building, in 2006, her "scopes" have gone from classic prim to sculpty, from simple scripting, to orchestrating various movements of the textures and the prims randomly. Try touching them to see how they interact with you.

Textures are a big part of her scopes. She finds inspiration in RL and SL from telescope imagery and microscopy to fine art from the masters... she's even used coastlines from the google earth maps, for each kaleidoscope has between 12 to 50 different textures in them!

Alexandra will debut a whole NEW collection of Kaleidoscopes for the month of January at the OZLAND Art Gallery... and she's made a special gift for everyone who visits.
