The University of Western Australia (UWA) runs a monthy 3D art challenge, curated by the ever diligent Freewee Ling. The challenges attract entries from a wide range of SL artists, both established and up-and-coming. They are lots of fun and i'm always astounded by the artists' creativity and the array of styles and ideas.

This month the topic is Triptych. "What on earth is a triptych?", I hear you ask. I found quite a few definitions online, most referring to 3 panels or framed artworks that are hinged together. As it's a 3D challenge, making art for flat panels or frames seemed a bit limiting (even if I could find 1 prim hinges somewhere) so i kept looking. Eventually I located a description on Google that made 3D sense to me - Triptych: a set of three associated artistic, literary or musical works intended to be appreciated together. Not even the mention of a frame, a panel or a hinge and lots of scope to be inventive. Whew! 

I decided to start building ... 

Below are a couple recent Triptych submissions. To see these and many more in world click here. And yes, I do have an entry - two in fact. One of them is a direct response to the 'framed' definition noted above. However you'll need to visit UWA to see them :) Feel free to explore and vote for your faves while you are there!

Art works have always been appreciated all over the world and this 3D art challenge is really going to be an excellent idea! I am sure that everyone would definitely enjoy this and the openings would turn out to be really useful for many!


Just taking a quick coffee break and wanted to post a hello
