“Noted art historian Vaneeesa Anne Blaylock” energetically leads a group of art lovers in her New Year Art Crawl through Second Life’s LEA sims. Picture taken at Gracie Kendal’s installation Ceci n’est pas une peinture.
…while wishing it may be the best year ever for everyone in all worlds, possible and impossible!
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: BWC Village I had actually done this image for my style post on my blog today, but I couldn’t resist sharing it here as well. Every photographer needs a shot of herself holding her camera, right?
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: Second Life Life – 1 Berry – 0 Lately I’ve been feeling a bit beaten up by life, seems to be getting the better of me. But I am planning to bite back and have my revenge soon. This is a remake of an image I did over two [...]
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: Second Life ALMOST PERFECT BUT NOT QUITE “Almost perfect… but not quite.” Those were the words of Mary Hume At her seventh birthday party, Looking ‘round the ribboned room.” This table cloth is pink not white— Almost perfect… but not quite.” “Almost perfect… but not quite.” Those were the [...]
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: FATEisland Born in September, I’m really a true Virgo at heart. Although I don’t follow horoscopes that regularly, I still find it fun to read them from time to time. I find it interesting that I resemble a lot of the characteristics for Virgos. I know it’s hard to [...]
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: Egypt I found this outfit on the second life marketplace a few years ago and promptly purchased it so that I could blog it. I even made a tattoo eyeliner to go with it. However, like most things in my slife, I never got around to it till I [...]
NU REPUBLIK, 19 Aug – With Olympic world harmony already a thing of the past, we return to geopolitical musical chairs: Sweden condemns Russia for sending Pussy Riot to prison for 2 years for “Upsetting the social order,” and Russia condemns the UK for threatening to storm the Ecuadorian Embassy so they can send Julian [...]
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: Second Life I was playing around with this photo in Photoshop and then I dragged it into one of my favorite editing sites, PicMonkey.com and played with it a lot over there as well. They have so many options and buttons to play with, I can spend hours on [...]
LOCATION: Just outside the Spaceport, Corellia (Star Wars: The Old Republic) IN PHOTO: Ravanel Griffon, Gannifari Star Wars players were pleasantly surprised today by a Gannifari in their mailbox. Apparently, this was Bioware’s way of saying thanks for moving our characters to more crowded servers. Despite my concerns about sending pets in lockboxes by mail [...]
If you’re looking for a calm and relaxing place in Second Life, Chris Lorraine Sofee‘s island in the sky is as hard to beat as it’s hard to find. Once inside the house, climb the stairs up to the roof to reach this enchanted meadow. It’s a creation that makes a masterful use of transparencies [...]
In the photo: Strawberry Singh Location: Highgarden – Game of Thrones Roleplay I recently bought new mesh feet inworld and I haven’t been able to stop playing with them. The system feet and hands are so badly done, but mesh and prim feet and hands really tend to bring an extra realism into sl photography. [...]
That’s Kikas trying out one of our unconventional “instant scenes” on top of an undescribable structure inside Eupalinos Ugajin’s unorthodox Kou! installation in Second Life, where we’re preparing a hopefully unbelievable party with him and some other friends. And that’s enough unusualness for the moment…
Yesterday the news reached us of the passing of Chris Marker, aged 91, considered one of the most influential filmmakers ever. In his eighties, while proclaiming the death of cinema, Marker joined Second Life (through an avatar named Sergei Murasaki) in order to explore its possibilities as an artistic medium. Here’s a great quote by [...]
I’d say Alpha Auer is the most creative clothing designer in Second Life, she pushes the limits of virtual fashion like no one else does. But Alpha Auer is just one of the several avatars of Elif Ayiter, “a designer and a researcher” in real life, a truly extraordinary virtual artist. Her sim Alpha Tribe, [...]
This picture was taken a while ago in Chouchou, in my opinion the coolest hangout spot in Second Life. It’s just a sandy island with a tree and a piano at the center plus some wrecks spread around, making a very relaxing change from the visual bombardment that is the norm in SL regions. Chouchou [...]
The place we went to this afternoon is so excitingly photogenic I had quite some trouble choosing a picture of it, among the many I took, to share in World Today. So, even for a few words about this Maya Paris’ installation (if the title, Celebrity Blow Your Tits Off, is not enough!), I’ll help [...]
