Acquarella: After the Apocalypse on!

The Acquarella saga continues. It's latest incarnation is on a sim in InWorldz loaned to me by virtual art patron Jeri Rajha, where I am retelling the story in 4 sections. Yesterday Jeri and several of her artists, including me, were interviewed by Saffia Widdershins and Elrik Merlin for's "Designing Worlds." The interview, episode 120 from March 21, 2011 can be watched here: My segment starts at the 31 minute mark.

I have divided the sim into four sunken rooms or aquariums that will depict the story in four stages. This interview covered the opening scene:it is set after the ecological-apocalypse; the earth is in ruins. War, pollution, over-exploitation of resources, and the creation of toxic waste have left even the ocean floor in flames. Black smoke billows and flaming sparks rain down. The charred plants are lit with a lurid light. Dive klaxons and explosions break through the roar of crackling flames.
