Penumbra & lacrimioare at Berg by Nordan Art


One of my ‘New Years resolutions’, if you can call it that – as I never really do those – is that I want to visit more art in Second Life. All kinds of art. And so this means I will also be going to exhibitions of Second Life  Photography. As I have written often,…

The Plain of Jars


Fitch Lekvoda’s “The Plain of Jars” is…well, that. A plain of jars. Giants jars. Hundreds and hundreds of them. Some half covered in the sand, others standing in the sun. And nobody really knows where they came from or what they mean. “Some now recall the legend of the giant King’s victory banquet. Believing the…

From Here On There Be Dragons


“Always remember, it’s simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.” ~J.R.R Tolkien From Here On There be Dragons is an art installation, currently on display at Split Screen, by Alpha Auer.

The Pillars – by Oberon Onmura

Most of my inworld time I spend either helping members of the SL Blogger Support Group and exploring and enjoying new locations and art installations. The past weeks I’v been taking things easy, due to the…

Bury your fears, bury your dreams


Not quite the cheerful post title ever is it? It is the title of a new art installation at MetaLes, by Selavy Oh, so excuse me for the sombre headline!

Inked


‘Inked’ is a photo exhibition by Elizabeth Nantes, in Art Gallery Dathuil. It opened last night and while I usually not particularly like photo’s on display in Second Life (I prefer to  enjoy them on Flickr, where I can see them in high resolution and on a big screen) ‘Inked’ is certainly worth a visit.

Arachnid by Cica Ghost


Over the years I have blogged so many of Cica Ghost’s installations, she is one of SL’s most productive artists, and her artwork never bores and always impresses me. Today I wen to explore her current “Arachnid“ which features, oh surprise, spiders! Big ones. Animated and moving ones. Oh and did I say they are…
