Baker Bloch’s blog has been quiet for several days, so I went over to see if any of the gang were at home. I drove down route 13 in Siliconis and then offroad up to the snowman holding the Artist Alley sign.
I was looking for the new 7 Stones Pillar and the Town Hall.
Boston University Medical School has put rules for good health in a beautiful setting. One section is designed to introduce new avatars to Secondlife, including walking, changing clothes, opening boxes, etc., and has a game where you hop on a pogo stick and answer health questions, moving forward and backward.
Art Alert! In Porto, Portugal at CRU Gallery. Meilo Minotaur and Capcat Ragu will display stories, photos and videos which they collected over the past year at the “Tell Me A Story” exhibit. The dates are May 4 to June 28.
Second Life as an art medium inspires photographers, writers, and film makers to capture and share ideas based on the work of other artists. Flickr is one place where we can share our work, and I first heard of this exhibit there.
“Meilo Minotaur asked Second Life users to tell a story that linked the various scenes of her digital 3D installation. On the wall you can see several pictures of the virtual installation, threads of color course through the pictures, linking them to the verbal stories you can listen to in the headphones.”
If you cannot travel to Portugal, you can see many photos and videos here.
First of all, a new continent of Linden homes opened up, which encouraged a mass immigration of people moving up to larger and fancier houses. Second, the Baker Gang moved over to Fordham, and set up a whole city in two days. Third, I moved over to Catocala, and erected one house, on which I spent three days trying to get the wall color just right.
And now I will bring in some furniture. And cats. There should be cats at Catocala.
I saw some cherry trees in the distance and when I went in closer I was astounded at the beauty of the garden that I found. Occupying a whole sim, Dim Sum Gardens has beautiful buildings, boats, rafts, wildlife, statues. It’s a wonderful scene in every direction. Just keep walking!
