Most of the photos today were taken on Beguile, a few on Wonderous.
I’ve really enjoyed the Great Light Gallery, which displays photographs of the Grand Canyon. My physical alt loves this part of the country. The exhibit is called Water: The Canyon Carver by Immerdar Fredriksson. At the entrance are five bells (one can be seen in the lower right corner in the picture), each with an info card in a different language.
My physical alt has always been drawn to the yin energy of water creating change, carving the landscape, even though it isn’t as flashy and dynamic as Yang energy.
“The SL13B Ethnographia exhibit showcases the works of participants in the Ethnographia project. The focus of the project is on the ways in which being in a virtual world have influenced the lives of of the participants as people with disabilities.”
“Ethnographia is part of a research project Virtual Worlds, Disabilities and New Cultures of the Embodied Self. It is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.”
Jadyn Firehawk is the primary builder.
A reminder that some of the exhibits are quite tall and climbing or flying is required. I nearly missed The Maple Nursery by Hyabusa Designs.
“We invite you to sit and relax in our desert garden. Enjoy the mystery and beauty of the Kingdom of Bhutan, which inspired the unique architecture at the University of Texas at El Paso. Sit and relax in our desert garden.”
There are great photography exhibits, including that of Ziki Questi.
In the photo above, one of two slideshows of the photography of Sparkie Cyberstar is shown. The lovely build is by Kaya Angel.
I enjoyed looking at The Old Harker House, with it’s sense of history and insights learned, as shown in the photo of writing on the wall, above. By Hannah Marie Bloodwolf.
“Elf Circle has been around for 12 years. It is a nice and relaxing land with dancing, shopping and many sights to see.”
“The Affordable Builders Company’s ConHab Project explores using shipping containers for homes that are aesthetically functional and affordable.”
I like the display for A Housing Adventure We Can Choose Now.
From what I’ve seen so far, the commercial aspects are way more toned down than in years past and exhibits by merchants seem more tasteful.
The 28 Wind Dreams exhibit by FaiRodis has lovely perfume pendant gifts. By FaiRodis Aviatik.
Moving on to Wondrous, one of my favorite exhibits so far is Lorin Tone’s Interactive Mayan Drums. I lingered there on Press Day, playing.
“An interactive loop-based musical “intrument” that you can change the sounds on. Just click the pillars for menus to change loops.” Any questions, please IM Lorin Tone. Enjoy!”
Next door to the Mayan Drums is St John Juke Joint. I took this photo on Saturday. When I went by there Sunday evening, members of the community and guests were partying.
“Bienvenue! Welcome to the St John Juke Joint, the SL13B venue for the St John Estate. St John is based on New Orleans & its surrounding bayous in the year 1916. Come sit a spell with us & enjoy the Jazz & Zydeco. Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
“After the unimaginable tragedy of Sunday June 12th 2016, we’ve refocused our theme to one that allows participants an opportunity to reflect and remember our brothers and sisters who were lost.”
“Curiosity not killed the cat in Second Life.
So you can walk around everywhere in my Art Installation, “Strange Viewpoint”
You can find a kind of a trick art, and the same time, you can enjoy abstract drawings.
Anyway, feel free to enjoy this strange art.”
It’s recommended to choose “midnight” to view Karupa Flow’s installation.
