TYPE: Asian Fine Arts
SLURL: Dead End/156/229/44
BACKGROUND: Asian Fine Arts includes Sumi-e (ink painting) and abstract-expressionism. Using the DE sim as a muse for creation of new art, ie: photographs of avi in poses within the sim are to be used with photoshop; as well as exhibiting appropriate paintings uploaded from real life. The expression "黒術" literally translates as both Black Art referring to monochrome prints, and that the character whose art shop this is to be is called makuro (makuro's art ashop). A secondary translation is "black magic" which brings voodoo qualities, typically 'sex and spiritism' in keeping with the Shinto belief common throughout Asia specifically Japan - in China it is called "ancestor worship', these are the official state religions alongside Buddhism etc. Basically it is an art shop. Having seen some of the other Groups currently working in the DE sim, there is a definite focus on 'black magic' as a theme with the regular users. There is also the obvious BDSM connotation. Some of the pictures available in the art gallery will be erotic in keeping with the developing traditions. Discretion is assured. The purpose is to involve the location not only as a shop but also a workshop so that the sim is being used productively through role-play, this will generate story arcs for the group to become involved in, inclusive of posed photo-shoots of avi, the location as a cultural center and the inevitable probability of the Asian district of DE having its own Yakuza - a proposal for that Group will be made in due time - I will post a proposal for a dojo business and group following the success of the Art Shop.
EXPERIENCE:1. For the opportunities it affords for role-playing story arcs involving the player group. 2. To exhibit and generate my art work and that of anybody else in the group. 3. To develop the DE universe in accordance with its existing themes.
