Scriptrix and Priminatrix

Desdemona is a master scripter and advanced builder in Second Life.

She works for artists, mathematicians, physicists, educators, and product developers that create in-world content for the Linden grid and various open simulator grids. She creates custom animations, sculpts and textures using both off the shelf tools and her own custom systems software. She pursues her own research projects in large scale scripted systems, photometric reconstruction, and interactive design.

Her award winning collaborations with Douglas Story include: FlowerBall, which was a Top Ten Art Installations noted by New World Notes; DynaFleur, which received 11,000 visitors in 2008 and was listed in the Linden Lab Showcase in 2009; and Ripple: A Meditation on Waves, which is listed in the Linden Lab showcase. She is the script author of the Burning Life 2008 to 2010 Lamplighter drumming systems, the Butterfly and Meteor Shower quest systems at Ode, an astrophysical visualization system at StellaNova, the Explore It career exposition for Santa Barbara City College, Galilean Moons for the Visualizing Theorem exhibit, D.construct for Splitscreen, and stage 4 of the Path exhibit hosted by the Linden Endowment for the Arts. In collaboration with Wizard Gynoid, she developed the scripts that create the visualizations of the E8 Special Lie Group which underlays the unified field theory of the physicist R Garrett Lisi. (1/2012)

If you Google her name as an exact phrase, you will get about 12,000 hits, provided you intentionally disable the Google filters that allow you to only see what Google thinks you wanted to see.

She performs these functions on an ongoing basis....
  • mentoring on scripting techniques and the mathematics underlying them
  • relentless role play (smiles) and similar time consuming activities
  • large scale collaborative project development
  • smaller projects done on an ad hoc basis for self and friends.
  • for fee script system design and development
  • virtual world design using the Unity3D development tools
