It was only supposed to be a summer 2014 setting, but Santaurio, Jac and Romy Mornington’s idyllic and mysterious island (originally sub-titled “The Lost Island”, in a nod to a certain television series), has endured for well over a year.

However, Jac and Romy have now announced that the region will finally be closing in a week or so, as they feel it is time move on to a new project. So, if you haven’t visited Santaurio so far, or haven’t been back in a while, now is the time to don your hiking boots, grab a hip flask of water and set out to do so, as the region is gain open to all for a land visit – no group membership required.

Inara covers the return of Art in Hats:

Originally posted on Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World:

AinHArt in Hats will be returning to Second Life in November 2015, this year supporting the inaugural Team Diabetes of Second Life season in support of the American Diabetes Association.

Found in 2013 by Quan Lavender, the initial event offered a means for SL couture designers and artists to present images of hats as statement of art, each with a story to tell.

In 2014, the event saw over 100 hats and their paired images displayed by designers and photographers, with donations made during the event (including a silent auction) going to support the work of Feed A Smile.

For 2015, the Art In Hats even will take place between November 4th and 14th, 2015 inclusive, with Emma Portilo taking on the lead as Top Hat Coordinator, supported by Chloe Seljan and Events Coordinator (particularly for European time zone events), and designer Kimmera Madison a Coordinator and builder, and…

Le Avaline Village in Second Life

Great review of this very scenic location from Inara:

Le Avaline Village is a full sim residential / photographic region designed by Shyne Autumn Meadow (Shyne Button) which seems to blend together a number of influences to produce and interesting rural / coastal environment with just a tiny hint of an urban centre.

Cam out over the water a little from the landing point, looking towards the  group of brick shops and their terraced courtyard, and you might catch a hint of Amsterdam or Rotterdam, the buildings and water suggesting a canal front scene. But walk a short distance way and you’re in altogether more rural and more rugged terrain, the landscape broken up by water which doesn’t quite do enough to create any individual islands, and which is easily crossed by bridges here and there.

Much of this landscape is elevated  –…

Art in Second Life: Immersive and Experiential

This post originated @ Windlight Magazine.

John:

Francesca Bergamasco discusses immersive art in Second Life:

Originally posted on Francesca Bergamasco:

While there are definitely works of art in regular life that the viewer can “enter into,” that experience is more the exception, rather than the rule. (– And let me re-emphasize that I said, exception rather than rule).

One memorable experience I had was in Amsterdam at the Stedelijk Museum when I walked into The Beanery by Edward Keinholz. It’s been years since I was inside of the Beanery, but it’s interesting, surrealistic. The bar has music and a crowd sound, and it is immersive. I have never experienced another artwork quite like it, and I spend a fair amount of time in museums.

Another example I can think of would be Seward Johnson’s sculptures based on impressionist artworks, such as Manet’s Dejeuner sur l’Herbe.

Impressions: a personal view of Second Life

Inara gives us a preview and review of her new build at LEA:

When Secret Rage approached me in mid-July and asked me to consider producing a full region installation in which to display my images from around Second Life, my first reaction was to refuse. Not out of stuffiness or false modesty, but because I genuinely don’t regard myself as an SL photographer, and am far from convinced the images I produce for blogging purposes are of interest as an exhibit.

However, Secret is a very persistent (and persuasive!) person; so I’m now pleased – and more than a little nervous – to say that my first ever art-focused installation in Second Life is now open, and I’m calling it Impressions. It can be found at LEA 6.

So what is this all about? Well, three things, all summed up…

Strings, A Superb New Work by Cica Ghost in Second Life

Honour Mcmillan covers Cica Ghost’s new exhibit, Strings:

Strings by Cica Ghost (moderate)

There are many wonderful artists in Second Life. I know that when I hear about a new installation by any of them that I’m going to like it.

Every now and then, the word like is a gross understatement. I love Strings, the latest work by Cica Ghost.

Strings by Cica Ghost (moderate)

Cica never gives to much away in terms of her thinking behind her builds. At least not to me. This leaves me with the freedom to come up with my own theories. *grin*

On the surface, this installation is all about an outdoor concert performed for the residents of an old apartment building.

Strings by Cica Ghost (moderate)

The characters you’ll encounter are fascinating. It’s not possible to tell in a photograph of course, but they move much like any audience does.

There are subtle shifts in body…

A day at the LoveFest – 1st day Lovecraft Festival 2015 in Second Life

This post originated @ Runa, The Wild Elf.

Yesterday was the opening day of the  Festival and I got Magicalnature once again to gang up with me to spend some silly time under the label ” Photo-session”. Like usual we had a lot of fun, but more importantly we found plenty amazing motives to ‘shoot’ and even funtastic volunteers ! for posing for and with us. And yes, Magicalnature is the true photo artist here whereas mine are..just photos.

Side comment : for all who witnessed me ranting about needing to find a bed… in the end I found more than one. Hint: Sanatorium.

Lovecraft Festival 2015 SpotlightsWe totally got lost in the tunnels! There I had a flirt with the cutest of all guys , but however bad I begged, he wouldn’t dance with me. Sadly. We visited the funeral house, had cake there, and we spent a lot of time with silliness, new friends !  and rides at the circus. You neeeeeed to go see the vehicles…some do not leave much room for associations other than… naughty.
Led to the following bits of conversation :

B: not a very healthy penis – but… yep – that’s one dick of a ride
A: I ride it.  I ..must be sick
B: chuckles
A: your turn :;D
A: no?
A: you sure? you miss the ride of your life lol
B looks around to find the vagina ride
A: roflmao! I help

You can find the single photos on flickr on my Runas photo-pool and in the Hp Lovecraft Pool. I recommend checking out the latter for there are more amazing impressions by other photographer, plus some adds of amazing items (aside of my own that is ) to purchase at the Vendor Fair. Please note that a lot of proceeds are meant to support Autcom, The Autism National Committee.

By the way, during the festival there is a countless number of daily events, shows, contests and more- check the google calender at the HPL-RPG site to pick your favorites: https://hplrpg.wordpress.com/2015-festival-info/

Or check the Calender in world by the landing or the cabaret entrance at the festival.

Kudos at this point for the currently very up-to-date and quick acting Editors !

The Lovecraft Festival is pleased to continue to encourage support of the efforts of Autism Awareness each year via AutCom (Autism National Committee). Event opens August 15.

Visit in Second Life

Here is a  video by Geo Meek, made in the very first hours of the Event
– and yes, its a Runa there in 0:05- 0:25 . I swear I had no idea ! :)

What is left to say is that the Festival Sim is amazingly well visited from start.
I didn’t crash often, despite the Sim being hellishly (positive sense, after all we celebrate all that is lovecraftian) crowded..which speaks for an amazing event committee !
