SL Newser - Events: Volunteering For The Expo | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Along the snow covered roadways there is a trolley running all the time so you can hop on and off at many stops in all the sims. Get yourselves into the centers of the sims too. Christmas trees are for sale in some of them so take a look before you leave one sim to go to the other. The entertainment area is all set up ready for the many shows and dancing and Santa has a place there too

Achill Island - Second life

Achill Island - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Achill Island ist eine karge und ziemlich kleine Felseninsel mit einem interessanten Terraforming. Es gibt einen höher gelegenen See, der mit Mesh-Wasser gefüllt ist. Von dort schlängelt sich ein Bach runter zum Meer.

Was mir an dieser Region vor allem gefällt, sind die vielfältigen Felsformationen in Verbindung mit dem Sandstrand und einigen Gräsern. Das erinnert mich etwas an eine norddeutsche Dünenlandschaft, auch wenn dort solche Felsen nicht vorkommen.

“Fragments of time” by Megan Prumier @Voir Gallery – Topaz Square, Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

“Fragments of time,” as the title suggests, is a photographic exhibition that captures the segments of each image, assembling them harmoniously and communicatively. Each fragment of vision seems to tell a story, or rather, it seems to want to bring the attention of the visitor on a specific aspect of the frame, letting you guess the story that takes place outside the scene.

 Daydream, by Cica Ghost - Second life

 Daydream, by Cica Ghost - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Cica's Daydream is filled with her hallmark whimsical looking creatures but this sim is a little more surreal than some of her others.  There is a wide variety of fantasy larger than life creations and creatures and many pose places so click on! Cica is a master of windlights and the sim music choice also matches the content well. This is a fun explore and great for taking pics.

Yesterday I took a trip to explore KEKELAND (M), after seeing some nice pictures on Flickr. What I found way exceeded my expectations. This build has personality in bucket loads. As well as being extremely pretty, it’s quirky and full of character, with lots to find and explore.

Lovefest 2018, Ravenheart,  Second Life 

Lovefest 2018, Ravenheart,  Second Life  | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Lovefest – the Second Life celebration of the birth of H. P. Lovecraft – opened its doors on Friday, August 17th, 2018 and will continue through until Sunday,  August 28th. The theme for the festival this year is The Path of Madness.

This year marks the event’s 7th anniversary, and marks the 128th anniversary of Lovercraft’s birth on August 20th 1890. As with previous Lovefest events, there is once again a wide range of celebratory activities – shopping, music and dancing, live music, film showings, open microphone events, live storytelling in voice, dance troupes and an adventure for people to enjoy.

Kekeland – Bardeco  - Second Life 

Kekeland – Bardeco  - Second Life  | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

It’s been nigh-on a year since our first visit to Kekeland – Bardeco, and while the titular bar served as an inspiration of me to remodel Caitinara Bar, after we visited the in the latter half of 2017,  we hadn’t been aware of any move or make-over in the design – until, that is, Shakespeare dropped a new LM on me. Intrigued, we hopped over to have a look, to discover Kekeland – Bardeco has moved from a Homestead to Full region, and undergone a make-over in the process.

We tried to recreate a quiet, sunny and peaceful fishermen place, inspired by an Italian village. You will find a little harbour and a coloured village, and hillsides of vines, with camping and mountains.

Seven Sins -  Ana (oceanida) @Niflheimr Art Gallery – Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Ana Oceanida‘s performance at the Niflheimr Art Gallery is open from August 5th, yet only today do I have the opportunity to visit her.

The theme of Ana Oceanida’s photographic exhibition is the 7 deadly sins, to each of which the artist dedicates a room. It is simply knowing what capital sin is addressed as a theme: for each room, there is an interpretive sign that introduces you to that specific topic.

For example, the first deadly sin you encounter at the entrance is lust, as is evident from the images on display.

Ethereal Shapes - Noke Yuitza, LEA 2, Second life  

Ethereal Shapes - Noke Yuitza, LEA 2, Second life   | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Currently open through (I believe) until the end of October 2018, is Ethereal Shapes, an installation of form and light by Noke Yuitza. It comes with an intriguing introduction (touch “Info” on the board on arrival):

Within the forms of faces, animals, flowers… in groups of stars, ink, glitter… There are 4 scenes: Dreamer, Galaxy, Ballet, and Eyes. The concept that brings them together is the dreamer that looks at how stars dances in a galaxy ballet.

The landing point – a gazebo that appears to have been in part delicate spun from light – sits at the centre of a series of scenes brought to life by the shimmering play and movement of light. They stand in a circle against the darkness of night sky (note the windlight for the installation appears to have been set at parcel level, so if you are not using Firestorm, you may have to manually swap to Midnight in order to appreciate the setting properly).

Echoes, Metaphysics of frequencies, LEA 24 Livio Korobase - Second Life

Echoes, Metaphysics of frequencies, LEA 24 Livio Korobase - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
A return to nature as a fluctuating cosmic vision, resonating vibrations where matter is in continuous movement and space does not exist. It is the unifying force of subtle body and energy fields. 
Some "invisible" elements seem have a strong effect on matter. They are all the unseen, intangible, but we hear them, we feel them.. Every phenomenon is a material trace of the invisible forces that generated it, an indissoluble fusion of content and form, of interior and exterior elements. 
This time my exploration is dedicated to one of this elements: sound.

LoveFest 2018 from 17 to 26 August Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Seit Freitag, den 17. August, läuft zum siebten Mal das LoveFest 2018 in Second Life. LoveFest ist die Kurzform von H.P. Lovecraft Festival. Die Veranstaltung läuft bis Sonntag, den 26. August. Das Motto lautet in diesem Jahr "The Path to Madness" (Der Weg zum Wahnsinn).

Durchgeführt wird der Event zu Ehren des 128. Geburtstags von Howard Philllips Lovecraft. Wer den amerikanischen Schriftsteller noch nicht kennen sollte, kann sich hier auf Wikipedia über ihn informieren. Eine der bekanntesten Erzählungen des Autors ist die Geschichte "Schatten über Innsmouth" und genau dieses Innsmouth gibt es auch seit vielen Jahren als Region in Second Life. Dort findet das Festival allerdings nicht statt, sondern auf einer eigenen Region.

Saguaro and Fruit Islands, Second life

Saguaro and Fruit Islands, Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Saguaro is a small island and just one the Fruit Islands. Fruit Islands are owned by Loretta String; Loretta rents out seperate Islands to residents. Those islands are not homesteads, they are smaller but the prim count can be similar, higher or lower than that of a homestead. One of these islands is Saguaro, located within a sailing paradise of numerous residential islands. Those other islands build a lovely natural background for Saguaro.

Elle Thorkveld's Art show at Surreal Gallery was delightful to see. She described the show  as "a 2D and 3D installation featuring generative art modified using tensorflow machine learning." That sentence made me start browsing the internet to learn more about it. But first, I danced with one of her statues while a DJ played.…
