In 2020, Matadero Madrid, in collaboration with Laboratorio de Electrónica Visual L.E.V., introduced Planet LEV Matadero, an immersive environment created by Children of Cyberspace, a group of artists and developers.
Planet LEV is a newly created artistic experience, available both in virtual reality and for web browsers. A dreamlike universe that hosts animated sculptures, sound installations, concerts and audiovisual live shows by artists from all over the world. Created by Children of Cyberspace, curated by L.E.V. and produced by Matadero Madrid and L.E.V, the project Planet LEV was born during lockdown in order to turn these challenging times for culture into a chance to experiment with new formats.
Now, on the occasion of Madrid Design Festival, Matadero Madrid and DiMAD organize the activity “There’s life in other (virtual) worlds”, including public online conferences, two intensive workshops to create virtual environments, intended for students of design, architecture and fashion, and a streaming presentation of results.
On Saturday February 20, as a closing activity, a public streaming will be made to show the results of the workshops taken by the design students. These works will be hosted and streamed at the virtual platform Tivoli Cloud vr, so the audience will have the chance to know this virtual world and its avatars firsthand.
Tivoli Cloud vr is a social network of metaverses, created with free software by a startup led exclusively by women. This platform aims to create a safe environment for anyone who wants to hang out with their friends, and to attend and organize virtual reality events.
Currently, it can host up to 400 users at the same time, while keeping a high level of human and friendly interaction among its avatars.
