Cica’s Monsters in Second Life

Cica’s Monsters in Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Monsters are real, ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes they win. - Stephen King This is the quote Cica Ghost uses to introduce her August 2020 build, Monsters. Occupying a Homestead region, this is another build that encompasses whimsy whilst also - perhaps - carrying a more pointed message.

Ann Owitis insight:

"Monsters are real,
ghosts are real too.
They live inside us,
and sometimes they win."

- Stephen King

 'Claustrophobia' by Mareea Farrasco @ Nitroglobus - Second Life

 'Claustrophobia' by Mareea Farrasco @ Nitroglobus - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

"I am glad Mareea said yes when I asked her to exhibit at Nitroglobus and challenged her to show another side of herself, meaning out of her comfort zone i.e. her beautiful landscape images. She choose claustrophobia as the theme for her exhibition." Dido Haas

Ann Owitis insight:

"A form of anxiety, disorder; claustrophobia is defined as an irrational fear of small, confined spaces. The feeling of being trapped, with no way to escape, can lead to panic attacks. Approximately 10% of the population is affected by this mental disorder.

Why I have chosen claustrophobia as theme for this exhibition? Because we live, these days, in a confined, pandemic universe of our own, and we are all more or less “claustrophobic”, even without suffering from this disorder in our normal, healthy lives.
This exhibition is my metaphoric way to express those feelings, trying to rationalize them, in order to make them endurable." Mareea Farrasco   Mareea Farrasco Flickr Photostream        Mareea Farrasco in blogs

 Boulder - Second life

 Boulder - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Wow, lovely sim, designed by Terry Fotherington, senographer. You can receive rezz rights when  you join the [valium] group.
A visit to Boulder feels like a holiday. All are welcome. 
Here's your taxi to Boulder.

Ann Owitis insight:

Place profile "Beautiful photogenic coastal land inspired by the African Penguins of South Africa. Machinima friendly." 

Boulder is a natural and photogenic coastal region. It is also a group sim belonging to [Valium]. When you turn on your ambient sounds, you hear the sea and the faint sound of real African penguins, which sound similar to that of a donkey. Boulder was inspired by real Boulders Beach near Simon's Town and Cape Town in South Africa, where endangered African penguins nest in their coastal habitat. Did you know that these endangered penguins bind together for life? There are only 20,850 breeding pairs left around the world, so they are on the list of endangered animals.

 Venesha, the enchanted isle - Second Life

 Venesha, the enchanted isle - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Venesha was designed by Hera (zee9), who recently published something extraordinary with Underwhere . This installation has unfortunately disappeared from Second Life after only one month. With Venesha, Hera goes one step further when it comes to depth of design. I could easily have taken 100 photos today.

Ann Owitis insight:

Place profile " Venesha is my Gustave Dore Inspired , Gothic interpretation of Venice.
It is a magical place with no real fixed historical setting.
Just a feeling of being in another place and time.
Something I think many of use need right now.
As usual it is an eclectic mix of things that have inspired me over the years.
There is even a school of Magick that vaguely resembles some other school you might have come across.

Places to visit.
There are lots of places to vist so here is a list of the ones I remember doing
The Gondolas are TP taxis if you wish to jump straight to locations.
The Mermaid Inn.
I have just watched the Lighthouse, so I am dreaming Mermaids.

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

This time Cica has dedicated herself to monsters. As usual from Cica, the monstrous beings in this installation also have mobile eyes and some of them are positioned in everyday situations. As I looked around, I began to  find these beings more and more likeable. They are depicted cute and sweet. According to the motto, you don't need to be afraid of monsters ... not even those who slumber in you ... if you face them, you can fight them and they become cuddly animals ...

On Friday, August 7th, Cica Ghost opened a new installation. I have now noticed that Cica almost always chooses a Friday for their openings. The last time it was exactly a month ago, on July 10th, with "Summertime" . Cica's latest installation is called "Monsters" and from my point of view is her highlight so far this year.
