NOVEMBER WINNER SAVEME OH OF THE UWA 3D OPEN ART CHALLENGE
SaveMe Oh, strong critic of UWA IDOLS events past, have finally broken through to claim the top spot in the first round of the new UWA 3D Open Art Challenge! SaveMe’s work, SaveMe Oh which mesmerized the judging panel, took the L$10,000 first prize. To quote fellow artist, Thoth Jantzen in admiring SaveMe’s work, “I’d never seen sarcasm and cynicism in sculpted form before”. SaveMe, who has won numerous prizes in all kind of competitions comes now in automatic qualification to the Grand Finale Round.
Commenting on the win, SaveMe said; I am totally unsurprised and really really care a bullshit for this recognition of my work, it makes me wanna puke and it’s another push for me to continue destroying hippie work in SL and experiment with all the knowledge that I have to send them in an heavy rotation back to Woodstock. I only want to thank Cheesus who was and is my mentor and took me along in the world of bullshit and make me see that it’s only OH ART that makes the difference in Secondlife. Thank you very very much! ”
So I’m not speechless and don’t have to cry fake tears and it’s almost an insult to be recognized along with so many bullshit artists and works of art.
I prefer to shit on all these prizes. The SL F-Art prize and the DOGFOOD prize are given by totally nobodies who think their names on the judges lists are more important than me, SaveMe Oh. So I hate to participate in this very open challenge where anyone can propose their own vision of art because the last thing I wanna know is this mediocre points of view.
71 entries were received from normally knitting old ladies and old man in pampers in their anti Alzheimer training program for the first round of this new Challenge with represents a sad collaboration between self acclaimed pseudo art houses and aquarelle groups in Second Life. These include The University of Texas San Quentin (UTSQ) led by Dr Carmen Fies, SL F-Art, led by Gleman Jun & Sunset Quinnel, CRAP led by Josina Burgess & Velazquez Bonetto, Pirats Sad Network led by Merlina Rokocoko & Newbab Zsigmond, FraudIsee led by Fau Ferdinand & Lizsolo Mathilde, Blow & Sell @ Avaria led by Florenze Kerensky & Barney Boomslang, DOGFOOD led by Frolic Mills & Giela Delpaso & UWA with Professor Ted Snell, Chair of the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council as Chair of the UWA judging panel.
FreeWee Ling in describing SaveMe Oh: As the curator of the UWA challenge I live and work with all these mess of works in a constant state of madness as they have so less quality but SaveMe Oh’s work is the only thing that cures the pain in a very intimate way. That’s why she also receives The Curator’s Choice award because it’s what I consider as be the best piece in the competition. Although you can call the other shit hardly any competition at all to SaveMe Oh.
Yesikita Coppola, the new official machinimatographer of the challenge can also go to hell because I will never appear in front of his camera as I am myself far better in filming me. And then without soft focus slow pending boring shots above shiny water parts.
SaveMe Oh is a complex work that is disturbing and dark. While shocking subjects tend to be sensational and unappealing to me I find myself really engaged by the quality of both her imaginative vision and her renderings in virtual space that combine elements of her real and virtual work. SaveMe Oh is an imaginative and courageous emotional statement. SaveMe Oh is an intelligent and deeply thoughtful artist.
