You miss the action? There is, just enter the world of the Elders …
It would be a shame not to credit the ones who supported the first time capsule of born-digital art, VULCANICUS [2010-2013]. Without these artists showing the ways not many of the now cool and trendy guys would have joined 1Biennale.
The Volcano of art, VULCANICUS show works made by:
Aley Resident, AM Radio, Aneli Abeyante, Art Blue, Attard Magic, Aurora Mycano, Bonafidenutts Aries, Belle Roussel, Birki Magic, Bryn Oh, CapCat Ragu, Cephyroth Mavendorf, ChapTer Kronfeld, Cherry Manga, Cold Frog, Creative Starfall, Daco Monday, db Gigamon, Dora Gustafson, Excess Lemmon, Feathers Boa, Fiona Blaylock, Fontana Magic, FreeWee Ling, Fuschia Nightfire, Gaianed Lindman, Garvie Garzo, Gem Preiz, Ggabriel Madruga, Giovanna Cerise, Issis Karu, Ivrai Abramovic, JadeYu Fhang, JP Giessen, Leopard Adored, Lilia Artis, Louly Loon, Maya Paris, Mdina Magic, Meilo Minotaur, Meo Sandalwood, Mimesis Monday, Moewe Winkler, Mosta Magic,Minethere Always, Minimal Blue, Met Knelstrom, Molly Bloom, Nanjido Oh, Navah Dreams, Neo Prim, Nexuno Thespian, Nicci Lane, PatriciaAnne Daviau, Paul Atreides, RacerX Gullwing, Ray Blue, Reezy Frequency, Renn Yifu, Rob Balder, Sisi Biedermann, Sergius Both, SaveMe Oh, Soror Nishi, Vanish Firecaster, Wizard Gynoid, Wizardoz Chrome, Yooma Mayo, Zeno Astronen.
A few of these pioneers are gone, but some of their early works stay in the Volcano of Art.
I could tell you a few stories, some to smile like How Lil Angry Robot [made by Feathers Boa] lost his textures and got a rescue pill by Chantal Harvey. Chantal had still a copy from the machinima she made for the David Lynch competition Good Day, Today . But the most touching story might be the life story of Fiona Blaylock. Enter her name in the search field of vulcanicus.com and you get it all.

VULCANICUS, a land placed next to Onawero.
The square formatted pictures show some content of VULCANICUS, a collection of art made in prims and sculpts between 2003 and 2014.
When I started my project and looked around for a name I found a note in the press by an author describing his passion to explore vulcanos: “Recently I learned: Many people enjoy to have a closer look at or even into a ‘Volcano‘ so the species ‘Homo Vulcanicus‘ was born.” So I named my project VULCANICUS as it needs a closer look. The Volcano of Art is a time capsule of Digital Art from 2003 to 2011. In a second edition some works from 2012 to 2014 have been added. Over 50 artists contributed to VULCANICUS.
Next to VULCANICUS is the land ONAWERO [best to have it running on a different server]. ONAWERO presents in 1Biennale pavilions and artist cubes in different landsettings.
A fence which can be turned on and off works as a theatrical curtain to the VISIT WELCOME area [right side] when the land ONAWERO is changing to show different lands.
