It looks like SH Tutti became a shooting star in immersive art. Her concept is to create art by modeling basic prims, adding pieces made by others so to combine them in a playful and colorful way. Within a few months of her short existence she got many calls and grants. Some might call her style Kindergarden art because it is so playful and colorful. However, I was correct when I predicted in Expo-Time! she would find success when she applied for 1Biennale. Let’s see the public vote if little Nomi will find some admirers.
SH Tutti rediscovers the prim
In 2011 I announced the start of a three year project to conserve prim-based art by 2014, and was able to bring this 10 year epoch [2003-2013] to a close. Prims are the basic forms used by avatars when creating things. Prims are: Box, Cylinder, Prism, Sphere, Torus, Tube, Ring.
When starting 1Biennale I thought that the prim-epoch was history as most builders of sculptures have moved to Mesh, use Blender or other tools to construct a wireframe and then import it to a virtual world. Then SH Tutti came [born-digital in Sept, 2017], got on the spot 10 art shows and applied for 1Biennale.
SH Tutti made everything out of prims. She offered as her 1Biennale cube a work she was about to create reflecting Niki de Saint Phalle’s Queen Califia’s Magical Circle, which you can find in Escondido, California. She said she spoke with the city council and the granddaughter of Niki might hold the opening speech, but I did not want to risk a dispute with the Niki Charitable Art Foundation. So it came to Tea Time with Tutti.
Her artist cube is placed in Bryn Oh’s Pavilion: The Long Legged Maskitts. It became a key part of the Grand Opening.

But that’s cold coffee now. SH Tutti got a LEA grant and support for her project “The Niki Garden” by Niki’s granddaughter.
