Inked

Rebeca Bashly’s Chronophobia


It has been a while since I tried to produce an SL machinima, but yesterday I felt in the mood and wanted to do a blogpost with a video. And what better topic than Rebeca Bashly’s art installation on Split Screen, ‘Chronophobia’. I always love Rebeca’s work and this piece is no exception, though it…

Gates of Memories


Today I took the time for some exploring and ended up in a gorgeous, snowy, place called Gates of Memories. There is not much information to be found, or maybe it completely missed it!, other than the land description tells us: We don’t remember days, we remember moments
