LEA 2,  LEA 24  and LEA 15  - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

The Linden Endowment for the Arts Sims may be the most underrated sims, in my opinion.  Most of LEA sims are Linden Labs endowed sims residents create art builds and perform in.  Most are land granted for a period of time following an application and proposal process.  The majority of SL's most well known artists and performers have either created or performed in a LEA sim at some point.  The sims usually are super creative, very well done and always enjoyable. I especially enjoy the large immersive 6 month full sim AIR/artist in residence builds. Unfortunately, other than openings, closings, and special events, they are usually not very crowded. This may be an ok, thing as one can explore without lag and most the spaces are open long enough for everyone to visit and not miss out. As great as many of them are though I always expect them to be fuller.  Anyway.. I"m going to take one pic in a few and post them here with direct links

 White Dunes Estate - The Trace Too - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Das Windlight ist hell und sommerlich. Es gibt einigen Objekten ein ziemlich realistisches Aussehen. Vor allem die Küste, teils mit Felsen, teils mit Sandstrand, sah für mich aus größerer Entfernung wie eine RL-Landschaft aus. Genau dieses Auge für natürliche Landschaftsgestaltung, hat Elvira Kytori in Second Life den Ruf eingebracht, zu den besten Gestaltern im Grid zu gehören.

Fall Trace, the quiet before the storm- Tranquil Bay  Second life

Fall Trace, the quiet before the storm- Tranquil Bay  Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Fall Trace, owned by Elvira Kytori, reminds an apocalyptic landscape. Wanting to define it in a few words, I would say “the quiet before the storm.” The colors of autumn and the surreality of walking on water give the visitor an immediate sense of peace. This feeling offered by the landscape is so generously accentuated by the houses, furnished with taste in their incredible simplicity, and by the lights of what seem to be meteors that are going to touch the planet. Time seems to have stopped as if the imminent danger could not come because everything is still as in a heartening snapshot.

Holiday Trace, Secret Charm  Second Life

Holiday Trace, Secret Charm  Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Over the years, a visit to The Trace family of regions – The Trace, The Trace Too, Summer Trace, Fall Trace, Winter Trace – has always been a pleasure. I’ve written about these regions, which were started by Kylie (Kylie Jaxxon), then became a partnership between her and Elvira Kytori, on numerous occasions in this blog. So, it was with delight that I received news from Shakespeare that there is another in the series – Holiday Trace – now open for visits, and made a point to hop over and explore with Caitlyn as soon as we could. Given the time of year in the northern hemisphere, Holiday Trace is a wintry setting. Snow lies heavy on the ground and falls gently from a windless sky. Exposed water here is heavy with ice thick enough to skate on, and the sounds of the countryside are subdued.

Holiday Trace (Winter 2017) Secret Charm - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Some people who have been reading this blog for awhile knows my love of the Trace Sims. The owners know what they are doing and provide sims that are the very definition of photographic sims and truly a work of art all on their own. Trust them when you arrive and set your wind light to the region settings to take some simply stunning photos with little effort. Every inch of this sim is to theme, easy to guide through and simply beautiful to walk through and think, or just breathe.

Great Second Life Destinations: State Celebrating the Season at Kylie Jaxxon's Holiday Trace, Secret Charm

Great Second Life Destinations: State Celebrating the Season at Kylie Jaxxon's Holiday Trace, Secret Charm | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

The fresh snows and holiday lights of early Winter are a very short season in Second Life -- with Spring coming early to most destinations in mid-January. Although there is no snow where I live in South Florida, and very little in the way of below 77 degree (25 celsius) temperature at any time, I can celebrate my love of winter snows at classic Second Life destinations, including Kylie Jaxxon's new Holiday Trace.

Holiday Trace, Secret Charm - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

To my delight Kylie Jaxxon has once again created a version of her well known and much loved The Trace. This time it is called Holiday Trace, and when I saw the announcement on Flickr that it would open soon, I was counting the days to go see it!

Today it opened and it is without a doubt one of Second Life’s most gorgeous winter sims. Well, that is my opinion! The Holiday Trace is – as I have said in several blog-posts over the years about the previous Traces – elegantly landscaped and decorated, obviously much love and effort went in this place. I am happy Kylie decided to do another Trace, together with Elvira Kytori.

Fall Trace, Tranquil Bay 2017 Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Ich habe am vergangenen Wochenende eine kleine Teleport-Tour über herbstliche Regionen gemacht. Darunter auch welche, die ich früher schon besucht hatte, nur um zu sehen, ob etwas geändert wurde. Bei Fall Trace kann ich das gar nicht genau sagen. Aber ich glaube, Kleinigkeiten wurden geändert, während das Grunddesign weitgehend erhalten geblieben ist.

LEA 24: "Echoes" - Livio Korobase - Second life

LEA 24: "Echoes" - Livio Korobase - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Am 18. August wurde im LEA-Blog die neue Installation "Echoes" von Livio Korobase vorgestellt. Der ist ein guter Bekannter auf den LEA-Regionen und seit seiner ersten Installation mit dem Namen "Musiclandia" von 2013, habe ich mir alle Arbeiten von Livio angesehen. Denn er hat einen abstrakten, skurrilen Stil, der mir gefällt.

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.

Holiday Trace is outstanding. You arrive at a station where a big steam locomotive just arrived. On the platform is some luggage from the passengers. The station is decorated for the season. And it is cold, really cold. At Holiday Trace it is snowing everywhere. At the station is one shop (Carnaby Street) and around the corner is a Pub (Oliver’s Tavern). The station itself is worth a visit. Have a look inside and enjoy the details, everything fits!

This holiday season has presented many beautiful sims to explore and the “Holiday Trace” build continues this year’s journey through winter regions. Kylie Jaxxon has put together something truly peaceful and beautiful to behold. I really enjoyed my visit here and wandered around taking in the sights and admiring the placement of the items she has placed around the build. As I mentioned before, it is beautifully done and the perfect location for a quiet getaway.

Holiday Trace (Winter 2017) Secret Charm - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

"Holiday Trace" ist eine klassische Winterlandschaft mit den gewohnt hochwertigen Details, die man von Kylie kennt. Vor allem die vielfältige Verwendung von schneebedeckten Objekten, gefällt mir auf dieser Region. Sieht man da genauer hin, sieht es immer ein kleines bisschen besser aus als auf anderen Regionen.

Das Windlight ist super hell und trotz dünner Wolkendecke sonnig. Da es auch leicht schneit, passt es nicht ganz. Für Fotos ist das Licht aber optimal. Für ein einzelnes Foto habe ich dann aber doch mal auf Nacht umgestellt, denn die vielen Lichter in den Bäumen und an den Häusern, kommen nur bei Dunkelheit zur Geltung.

Previewing the Dickens Project 2017  LEA 7  Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

In 2012, and to mark Dickens Bicentenary Year. Seanchai Library created The Dickens Project, a celebration of the life and times of Charles Dickens, focused around what is perhaps his most popular novel – and one which still resonates with meaning today – A Christmas Carol. Since then the event has evolved and grown over the years, in the process becoming a Second Life Tradition. In 2017, to mark the its fifth anniversary, The Dickens Project will open its doors on Saturday, November 25th, 2017, and run through until Saturday, December 30th, 2017 in a region-wide immersive environment, where visitors can trace Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey, from his place of business, to his home, and onward through his travels with the Ghosts of Christmas to the end of his story.
