Romeo + Juliet 2.0


I guess I am back! Was I gone? Not really, but the past week and a half (and maybe, in hindsight a bit before that already) I have been miserable and dealing with an ear-, throat- and sinus infection of (for me, not used to much..) epic proportions. I got antibiotics, painkillers and nose-spray and…

The Timewalkers


The Timewalkers by Solkide Auer on LEA15 is quite epic! It is so huge and colourful, and it moves and changes….hard to explain in a blogpost and it was also not easy to make pictures that give a good impression! I therefore keep this post short and just say: go see it and take the…

Ghosts of the Internet


It does not happen often that I have to leave Second Life and enter a different virtual world, in order to complete a  blogpost on an art installation, but “Ghosts of the Internet” by Glyph Graves made me do it! Ghosts of the Internet is located on the LEA21 sim in Second Life as well…

The Golden Age of Russian Avant Garde


Yesterday I visited LEA8, and initially I thought – upon landing looking at the land information – I landed in ‘WE’ by Eupalinos Uganjin. Upon walking about I noticed the names of the parcels changed and when I saw work of Bryn Oh and Sorror Nishi…I knew I needed to do some more research on…

The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari By Xineohp Guisse


When randomly teleporting around, I ended up in The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari By Xineohp Guisse, on LEA13. I explore a lot and often, well..actually it is how I spend most of my SL time. I do not blog about all places I visit, sometimes I just travel around without making pictures and other…

Dragon Curves


Dragon Curves, a full sim art installation on LEA26 by (Dutch) SL Artist Mac Kanashimi, is not – as I thought when I read the name – about Dragons as such, but turns out to be representation of the mathemathical Dragon Curve ! Mathematics, yeah that’s right. That usually has this effect on me…: Anyway,…

The Machine


This afternoon I managed to get completely lost….yeah, I am just terrible when it comes to mazes and staircases, but eventually I made it! I visited ‘The Machine’, an art installation by Lilia Artis and Moeuhane Sandalwood on LEA. It is interactive, and I am not going to give away the clues – except that…

The Cosmogony of Rafts and other improbable floating beings


For the third time in a month I have started a week with a Monday morning appointment in the hospital, for yet another treatment on my foot. I hoped this morning they would just look and say it’s all healed, but alas…some cutting and fiddling was needed (but now really last time!) and so I…

Arithmos, numbers from Zero to Infinity


A favourite destination for me in the weekends, while having breakfast and liters of coffee, is the cluster of LEA sims and then hop around from one sim to the other, exploring and hoping to find something that excites me. This morning I ended up at LEA17, in an overwhelming installation by Giovanna Cerise: Arithmos….

I want to run….


‘I want to run I want to hide I want to tear down the walls That hold me inside I want to reach out And touch the flame Where the streets have no name..’ ‘I want to feel sunlight on my face I see the dust cloud disappear Without a trace I want to take…
