Grauland / Last Trees, Liberia Isle (ADULT) Second Life

Grauland / Last Trees, Liberia Isle (ADULT) Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Jim Garand never fails to intrigue / please with his periodic re-designs of Grauland, his Homestead region. Since 2019 he has consistently offered environments for people to visit which have mixed themes and ideas in multiple ways – landscapes, art, architecture, history, mystery, science fiction, and so on. As such, it is always a pleasure to drop in and witness what he has most recently created for people to enjoy. And for me, this is particularly true of the April 2024 edition of the region, which he has called Grauland – Last Trees, as it reminds me of one of my favourite – and potentially one of the most underrated classics of of the genre – science-fiction film, Silent Running.

Grauland’s derelict appeal in Second Life 

Grauland’s derelict appeal in Second Life  | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

It was off to Grauland for me for my first of 2024 trips to Jim Garand’s always photogenic region, which also serves at the home for his M1 Poses store (tucked neatly out of the way in the sky). The last time I visited, the region was home to a setting featuring ancient stone ruins awaiting exploration, set with a somewhat tropical environment; it’s a theme which-sort of continues with the iterated I visited in January – albeit featuring ruins of a very different kind. For this setting Grauland presents an almost flat island; whether temperate, tropical or sub-tropical is hard to say at first glance, although there are clues to suggest the former is likely the case, rather than the latter two, and on which stand the remnants of what may have been a sizeable industrial operation

Rebuilt this time again with a lot of concrete in the form of various buildings, some in ruins and, as always, in the form of various art objects.

Typically Jim, the landscape appears barren, desolate and deserted.

It's summer, the weather is temperate and the black sand is warm. So come out and relax in one of the cottages, walk along the beach and take some photos in the unusual landscape"

Ich bin so was von angetan. Jim ging wieder zu dem Ambiente von früher zurück, das ich so bewunderte. Viel Kunstinstallationen gepaart mit klaren Linien und Einfachheit. Und seine Visitenkarte ist auch zurück, die aufgehäuften Steine (erstes Bild)

Grauland’s Art Park in Second Life

Grauland’s Art Park in Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

I first visited Grauland, the Homestead region held by by JimGarand and home (in the sky) to his M-1 Art Pose business in March 2019. At the time, I was immediately struck by its genuine uniqueness, offering an environment that expresses art as a landscape.

Since that time, Jim has continually revised the region on a regular cycle of iterations, some of which have continued that idea of art-as-landscape, others of which might be regarded as more “natural” settings – tropical beaches, oriental gardens, deserts – all of which have been highly engaging and kept me returning to the region to write about many of them.

The sim changes often as we like to keep it fresh and inspirational to all photographers.

Owner and sim designer is JimGarand

In his usual style, he made it a little more urban this time, with some art objects and this time with many murals that are larger and even more beautiful than usual. This time the region is surrounded on two sides with a city skyline.

Living in a caravan in the hot scorching desert with cactus as your only friends is not an easy choice. The harsh climate and the lack of resources make it a hard place to survive. You need an aircon to keep cool and a solar panels to power a generator. You also need to store enough water and food for your needs. You are totally off grid, away from civilization and its comforts. But you also enjoy the freedom and the beauty of nature. You have a different perspective on life and its challenges!

JimGarand is back with a new iteration of Grauland, and it is one that was bound to grab my attention sooner or later given it presents a sci-fi / Mars vibe in which a realm of potential touches might be found if the eye and the imagination are willing to have a little fun.

I  have reported repeatedly about Grauland redesigns, yesterday I discovered by chance that he had done it again. This time too, Jim built clearly and simply. Masculine touch included. But this time with fewer art objects. Some of the components he uses for building and decorating are already known from his previous conversions ... this time I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.
