Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings is a generative visual artwork,
composed of many overlaid images forming a “slow-changing light
painting.” You can see a lesser demo version on the official site. On
June 29th, 77 Mil will open in Second Life and real life
simultaneously, to be seen via streaming video and in-world through a
recreated version of the work by Angrybeth Shortbread.

Eno was moved by a desire to get his visual installation work out of
the gallery, where few can see it, to a larger audience. (As someone
who’s studied his work, I would suspect that his thought process went
something like: Hmm…people have great big gorgeous HD monitors and
TVs now…maybe I should dust off the old screensaver idea…) Head to
blueair.tv and longnow.org for SL coordinates and more info. Here’s
teh press release:

The Long Now Foundation, a San Francisco non profit dedicated to
fostering long-term responsibility, is pleased to announce the Second
Life premiere of Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings, in partnership
with metaverse services company blueair.tv.

The work will be both streamed via video at select locations inside
Second Life, while a rendition of 77 Million Paintings has been
created by blueair.tv creative partner Annabeth Robinson, known
virtually as AngryBeth Shortbread.

Two evenings, June 29th and 30th, are open to the general public at
multiple venues across Second Life, with the largest public area
provided by Joi Ito (Kula Sims). The final night, July 1st, is a
private event that will be held in appreciation for Long Now members
worldwide (members.longnow.org) and hosted on the Leeds College of
Art and Design’s Digital Media Sim. Members of The Long Now
Foundation staff and board will also be visiting the Second Life sims
throughout the weekend and during the member event on Sunday evening.

The North American premiere will be hosted by The Long Now Foundation
at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Mr. Eno
hopes to be in San Francisco for the event.

Questions regarding the Second Life opening, sponsorship of the
event, Second Life-based artwork and blueair.tv itself should be
directed to Bryan Campen at 312.799.1329 or via email at
blueair.tvATgmail.com. Any questions or requests for interviews
regarding the artist, installation and membership to The Long Now
Foundation should be directed to Danielle Engelman at 415.561.6582 or
via email at danielleATlongnow.org.
