Dairy 2021 (137) October 11th/12th Watching table dance

Monday, October 11th, I met with Mistress in the afternoon for 2 hours. First thing Mistress did was putting me into am armbinder again, then she left and summoned me to club Delust. We caught up with our news there. Then, to my surprise, Mistress removed the armbinder and unlocked my slave collar, replacing it with the sub collar. I was speechless first. It might have been the shortest red light in years. Anyway, a reason to smile. Mistress does as she sees fit.

We roamed that afternoon, we were at club DeLust, at Puerto Esclava, at Heavy Bondage Club, at club Domme a Domme and at Dark Butterfly. We watched, read profiles and chatted. I was a relaxed afternoon at Mistress’ side.

At night pet Sun was present and I took her with me to Puerto Esclava. Later Mistress Jenny and then Holly joined us there. When Puerto Esclava was shut down for a restart we went back home to our terrace and had a nice chatty night with slave Holly and pet Sun. I announced that I planned to spend the next night at our dungeon and slave Holly’s dry British humor made us laugh once again!

Sun: oh yes
Diomita Maurer: well, Holly, then you just follow the screams tomorrow night
slave Holly (honoursgirl): yes Mistress Diomita
Sun shivers
Diomita Maurer: no worries, I assume that Mistress with leave the order that I don’t break her toys during her vacation
Mistress Jenny: you are free to play with our toys how you see fit as long as you replace and breakages, Diomita
Diomita Maurer: thank you, Mistress
slave Holly: worry sis if you see Mistress Diomita in the pet store looking for black puppies
Sun giggles
Diomita Maurer coughs laughing RL and SL

After Sun and slave Holly had left to bed, Mistress Jenny and I spend some time at club Domme a Domme.

Tuesday, October 12th, Mistress started into a one week vacation. I was lucky to catch her online in the morning. Thus I could spend some relaxed time with her at Puerto Esclava and at home.

I had some time roaming around in the later afternoon, and I went shopping as I saw a nice outfit. When I returned slave Holly and shortly after her pet Sun came inworld. I took them to Carnal Intentions for a short time. Back home I selected an outfit for pet before I went off to tend to my RL

At night I first had a skipee with Flo, Alessi and Sun watched and I had a long break for RL unexpectedly inbetween. When we had finished I took Flo, Sun and Alessi to our dungeon. Flo was licked by slave Alessi and I was licked by our pet Sun. That was a nice start. slae Holly joined us and Flo left for bed. I had just placed Sun on the uneven bars and made slave Holly lick her ass and pussy when Mistress Jenny came inworld. We both watched the show.

We went to Carnal Intentions when the girls were done. And there we got the next show – table dance, first featuring a male alone, then a couple and finally 2 males. There was main chat going on and the show was great to watch while we talked amoung us.

Maurer’s pet Sun aka. Newlifeloading

In the Diary post “Diary 2021 (136) October 9th/10th The collaring of our pet Sun” I wrote about our newest family member Maurer’s pet Sun (Newlifeloading). Some readers might have found that I published something about our pet in the section “Our subs”.

I met Sun Boucher (Newlifeloading) end of 2020 the first time. I don’t remember where anymore and I just have the transcript of the private IM. She must have been dressed in a way that underlined her butt as I approached her making a remark about her butt. I wanted to provoke her and to find out on which side of the leash she would feel comfortable. The next time I saw her, was in the begin of August and then one week later we talked a bit more.
Sun told me that she’s from Denmark and that her SL changed when her RL changed and prevented her to come inworld during the day. Henceforth she had little contact to her partner in SL (Manella Boucher) and to her family in Second Life. Sun was a submissive to Devi (deviant1), who I know from several encounters, but was not owned by her anymore. Sun is the (SL) daughter of Essa (Essanem Spark), who I also know from a few encounters and who is the partner of Devi.
Sun joined Second Life almost 2 years ago on October 29th, 2019 and she was quite addicted spending almost her whole days in Second Life. During this time she learned a lot, not only about herself but also about the technic of Second Life, about places and about shopping. She learned how to do things. She owns a place to retreat to in Essa’s sim, she loves to sail her own boat, to ride her own bike and she accumulated a large wardrobe. Sun defines herself as a switch leaning towards the submissive side. She has been educated at Roissy Val d’Oise.

Mistress Jenny and Diomita with pet Sun (Newlifeloading at Carnal Intentions, at Psi’s realm and at Puerto Esclava

After our first longer conversation I invited Sun to our Friday night party and she followed my invitation and joined our party on Friday, August 13th. Since that day she is with us. Sun is an obedient girl who loves to be controlled very strictly – thus a perfect match to us. She knows her place, loves to serve and to please. She follows orders willingly and also enjoys more than just a little bit of pain. She had been a ponygirl for quite some time and was eager to be a puppy. I warned her that she should be careful what to wish for, but she was too curious. A few days later Sun became our puppy, our pet. I restricted her view, her talking and her hearing, and I trained her.

Mistress Jenny and Diomita with our pet Sun at Puerto Esclava and at home

Being a helpless puppy can be a very intense experience and we kept Sun as our family puppy for 3 weeks. That was long enough to grow her complete submission to us, long enough to realize that she lost control, but not too long to fully extinguish the desire. For sure Sun will have more puppy time with us. Her time as our family puppy also led to a closer realtion to Mistress Jenny and me and to our family. Consequently we took our pet into a trial on Friday, October 1st.

We collared Sun as Maurer’s pet Sun on Saturday, October 9th. Welcome to the family, pet.

 

 

 

Art in Second Life 2021 (103) Escape by Sophie de Saint Phalle @ Nacotic Concept

After I published my post about the exhibition at Narcotic Concept (read here), I had contact with Spohie de Saint Phalle (Perpetua1010). And she told me that I missed another exhibtion of her at Narcotic Concept. There’s a so called “Red Room” where Sophie installed “Escape”, an exhibition which I saw last year at Sophie’s own gallery, the SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre. I wrote about it here.

Now this exhibition is re-installed at Narcotic Concept. This provides firstly to visit it for all those who missed the first installation, and it provides to have another look at it for those who saw the first installtion. Although the base is the same, the new installation is different – not only because the room is different. Also because the impressions are more effectful, going deeper, if you immerse into “Escape” by Sophie de Saint Phalle.

ESCAPE is showcasing black and white photos of a RL performance. Sophie de Saint Phalle put a big canvas (4×12 meters) on a stage and painted it in front of the visitors. Behind the canvas 10 professional dancers were waiting to cut the canvas and force their bodies through the openings to symbolize the escape from suppression, humiliation, brutality, disrespect and most of all the escape from indifference. At the end of the performance the canvas was cut into strips and sold.

The direct landmark to the red room brings you close to the exhibition. You have to go “through” a secret (phantom) door in the wall. The door is where a Statue of Liberty is displayed on the wall.
Please activate advanced lighting model and activate media for the full and right experience.

Impressions of “Escape” by Sophie de Saint Phalle (1) – upper left shows the entrance (the door in the wall)

The room itself has a red floor and red light elements, something that contrasts well with the black and white pictures of the performance. The pictures are arranged along the walls. Transperent curtains with the pictures are suspended from the ceiling and they move a bit permanently. By the curtains you see several layers of pictures interfering with each other.
Right at the entrance is a video screen with a short film by Sophie that reflects the theme: The architecture of terror, escape from dictation, escape from war, escape from abuse, escape from discrimination – think freedom. In the film Sophie mixed real life pictures with scenes from the performance. The film can be seen on youtube here.

The pictures are not raw photographs but are processed and show how the dancers break through the canvas.
Sophie de Saint Phalle wrote (on the back of a chair in the exhibtion: “With escape I want to take you into the world of terror and tragedy, into the reality of the true and unjustifiable essence of terrorist fanaticism. I want to show you the destruction behind and in front of the veil

Impressions of “Escape” by Sophie de Saint Phalle (2)

Sophie de Saint Phalle (perpetua1010) is a Austrian RL painter and book author. She mainly paints nude from models and abstract art. She loves to experiment with different kinds of paint and lithography. Her favourite materials are sand, plaster, glue, terracotta, stones, bones, ash, charcoal, natural pigments and more.
Sophie has made several book illustrations and was for many years political cartoonist for a well known satire magazine. She lived and worked in the Unites States, Australia, Rome and Monaco.

You can also watch a video about the exhibtion on youtube here.

Narcotic Concept is a quite unique art place in Second Life as it features mostly the art of RL artists. It’s kind of a bridge between the virtual world of Second Life and the physcial world. With the exhibtion it can be proved that RL art can develop it strength also in a virtual world where light effects and the arrangement of the pictures can be done in a different way than classic exhibitions. I want to thank Lunhea and all others who worked to enable showing the exhibition “Escape” by Sophie de Saint Phalle in Second Life.

Our 13th wedding anniversary / Backflash October 2021 – “One decade – Jenny and Diomita married for 10 years” (October 2018)

Today marks the 13th wedding anniversary of Mistress Jenny and me. Time really flies by – we had an awesome time together and we look forward to many years to come. It’s not easy to come up with something new for our wedding anniversary every year.

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
When I was looking for an entry for October 2021, I came across the entry I made for our 10th wedding anniversary. Hence for our wedding anniversary of 2021 I choose to combine the backflash series with the entry for our wedding anniversary. I had this idea already in 2019, but it fits once again.


One decade – Jenny and Diomita married for 10 years

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Jenny’s and my wedding in Second Life. 10 years is a long time in real life and maybe even more in Second Life. Jenny and I had a great journey together, we share a lot of memories, we spent a large part of our free time together. We also changed with time, developed together.

Our dance at the wedding celebration

When we married October 24th, 2008, I was collared by Yasmin and Jenny was my collared slave (collared on June 5th, 2008), my Ehesklavin. I was released by Yasmin in 2011 and in 2012 Jenny convinced me to wear a collar again, her collar, and we became mutually owned. In 2013 we fixed a date for my collaring, just to have a another day to celebrate. We picked April 21st, 2013. In the course of 2014 – 2016 Jenny became more and more dominant and took control of me. That culminated at our 8th anniversary in 2016, where I finally fully submitted to her, becoming her Ehesklavin and she became Mistress Jenny for me. And my submission to Mistress even grew more during the last 2 years. Yet, we’re still mutual owned, partnered, a domme couple for most and I still claim Jenny as Mine, as my property and you might see her at my feet at times.

I wrote something in this blog at every of our wedding anniversaries so far and you can follow our time together and how we changed and developed together reading these entries:

2008 https://themaurers.me/2009/03/08/dios-1st-year-in-second-life/

We both were very happy during the last 10 years. We accepted the change around us and the change between us. And thus we are also very happy as we are now.
Mistress Jenny is enjoying and further strengthening her position and I’m happy and proud to be her Ehesklavin. As Mistress is also my collared property, she grants green lights. Then she’s at my feet and is Mine. The switching, although limited in time, might be one reason that keeps our relation exciting and that keeps up the strong desire for eachother.

Above all Jenny is my wife and partner and I am hers vice versa. Thank you for 10 years of blissful marriage, Jenny. I love you to bits!

Diary 2021 (136) October 9th/10th The collaring of our pet Sun

Saturday, Ocotber 9th, Mistress Jenny and I spent more than a hour together in the afternoon. We first went to Heavy Bondage Club, then to Puerto Esclava, and finally visited club Domme a Domme. It was quiet, we caught up with our news, we chatted and made plans.

October 9th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club, Puerto Esclava and club Domme a Domme

At night Mistress Jenny and I were inworld quite early for a reason. We planned to collar our pet Sun (Newlifeloading). Sun was present and hence we started right away. We took her to Sensations and selected a collar, then fitted it at home …. and after pet had asked properly we locked her collar. She’s officially ours now.

Ocotober 9th – the collaring of our pet Sun: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home woth pet and slave Holly

slave holly and Flo came inworld and watched their new sister. After all were finished with all we went to Carnal Intentions to show off our new family member. We returned home after 15 minutes as I had to tend to my RL and had to log off.
Mistress Jenny, Flo, and slave Holly played 2 rounds of greedy with Sun watching them, then they went to Psi’s realm where I met them upon my return inworld.

October 9th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions and Psi’s realm with Flo, slave Holly and Sun

A collaring is still something special and we enjoyed it to the fullest! Hence a day to remember.

Sunday, October 10th, I was inworld quite early. To my suprise Mistress Jenny was also inworld. Mistress Jenny was in a quite playful and dominant mood. First she tok an armbinder and secured my arms behind me, then she stripped and it was clear what she expected me to do. She got her orgasm, I got my fix. slave Holly was inworld as well and after Mistress had dressed again, we went seeing slave Holly. I was still wearing the armbinder. Consequently Mistress helped slave Holly putting an armbidner on as well. Then she took her properties to Heavy Bondage Club and exposed us there. Mistress Jenny exposes me very rarely with our slaves, hence it was an intense time for me. In addition I finally had the opportunity to catch up with Mistress at Heavy Bondage Club before we had to tend to our RL again.

I returned inworld in the afternoon and first thing I did was changing. I needed something to re-build my confidence *winks*. Mistress Jenny and I spent one hour with Holly at Carnal Intentions. That was relaxed and enjoyable after the eventful morning.

October 10th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with slave Holly

At night Mistress, slave Holly, Flo and I played a skipee, while our pet watched us playing. I talked with her about her rules and she revised ehr profile. Flo and I won the skipee way too easy, we had lucky cards.
We went to club DeLust that night. slave Holly and pet danced for us and the crowd present. Flo enjoyed watching and got a place between Mistress Jenny and me later, so more reason to enjoy. Sun and slave Holly tried to entertain the lazy crowd and had some success, moost of all you could see that they enjoyed it.

And that’s it about our pet Sun’s collaring weekend.

Diary 2021 (135) October 7th/8th slave Melissa released / pet’s trial (III)

Thursday, October 7th, I spent some time inworld alone and had a few IMs. But basically I used my time inworld to write while I had access to some messages and information. I released slave Melissa (MelissaRLV) that afternoon. It had been 4 months since we last saw her and almost 3 months that we got a life sign of her. We really hope that her real life issues could be solved and that she and her family are doing well. She’s missed, but we have to go on with our SL. slave melissa with always be welcome in our family as a sub friend, just nor as our officially collared slave anymore.

In the afternoon I met with Mistress Jenny and we spent time together in Puerto Esclava and at Heavy Bondage Club. We talked about the family, made plans and discussed the theme for our next Friday night party. Mistress had to leave to tend to her RL and I left soon after her and made the best of the Autumn sunshine in RL.
When I returned shortly before dinner, pet (Newlifeloading) was inworld and I had a nice chat with her about her rules.

At night pet and Flo were present and I had 2 rounds of greedy with Flo while we waited for Mistress Jenny to come inworld. When Mistress showed up, shortly later also slave Holly came inworld. We went to the slut platform that night. Mistress Jenny asked me to place slave Holly and pet on the podests and to tied them up properly. slave Flo knelt next to Mistress. And finally also Elena joined us.
We talked about Sun’s rules as our sub. Well, it was more Mistress Jenny who explained all rules and set her acents and remarks on each of them. I think all around could sense her dominance and love.

Thursday, October 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava, at home and at Psi’s realm with Flo, slave Holly, pet and Elena

After pet and Flo had left for bed, Mistress, Elena, slave Holly and I went to Psi’s realm for a short time before we returned home to retreat. Mistress allowed me to lick her and to get my fix – thank you, Mistress Jenny.
It was a full day and it is always exciting to prepare a collaring.

Friday, October 8th, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon for one hour. We spent it at Peurto Esclava, we caught up with our news and chatted. I wanted to please Mistress and asked her to sit in one of the chairs at Puerto Esclava – and I knelt at her feet. Yet what pleases Mistress most is when I wear my slave collar. Consequently Mistress Jenny made me please her properly, unlocked my sub collar and replaced it with the slave collar. She took me into my next red light that afternoon.

Friday, October 8th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava

We returned home and changed for our party at night before we logged off. We had set the theme too: “It’s Friday again, yay. Let’s go on a fetish cruise tonight. Wear you finest domme or sub fetish outfit in any colour but black – or come as you are or come naked …. DJ Virgo is spinning the tunes. Let’s have fun.”

When I came inowrld at night Flo was playing skipee alone and our pet Sun was in the house. I went seeing her and unlocked everything. She could choose something to wear that Friday night and was set free – to make a free and willingly decision to submit to us the next days.
The party was fun as always. pet had particular fun on her last day in freedom and she danced first with slave Lily, later with Janina. Another great Friday night!

Friday night party October 8th: slave Holly, Diomita, Mistress Jenny, Flo, Sun (Newlifeloading), Elena (Elenaslv Serenity), Ebony Massey, Lily Bloodrose and Sun, Janina Foxdale, Mina (Mayhemzodd Mcdunnough) (upper row), Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips, Jayson Dakota, Beauty (Sleepingbeauty Enchantment), Dely Ebony (krybia) and Tasha Asteria, Baroness Capelo, XonRubberLife, Laura (Laura00175), Claven Albatros, Virgo Babii (lower row)

Art in Second Life 2021 (102) La Maison d’Aneli October/November 2021

On Wednesday, October 20th, a new exhibtion opened it’s doors at La Maison d’Aneli. This time Aneli Abeyante presents 4 artists and each gave their exhibition a name:
“Duality” by Kicca Igaly
“Out” by Nessuno Myoo
“Bubble Show” by Vroum Short
“Pareidolia” by Sasha Arivalhagan

For this exhibtion Aneli Abeyante offers once again a (Secon Life) booklet with some pictures of the installation as a free gift. It is available in the main hall. I started my visit with “Duality” by Kicca Igaly.

I never saw Kicca Igaly’s art before although the list of her exhibtitions and appearances is very long indeed. Well, the world is large and the universe of SL is also large. Kicca wrote about “Duality”:  “Human nature seen as a contraposition of what is light, balance, wisdom with respect to darkness, wickedness, negative impulses. A thin psychic membrane divides the two natures intrinsic in man who compete for complete dominance. Crossing this membrane one is attracted now to one, now to the other of these natures which condition life so strongly.


The installation consequently has two parts, the one you see when you get to Kicca’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli with the the white sculptures that look different from every viewing angle. Some of these express duality as well, like the pair of scales. The second part is reached by walking through the wall, It is a dark blue setting, something like a ritual scene in the woods. Two rows (duality) of mysterious figures lining up towards a giant bat.

Kicca Igaly is in Second life for more than 14 years. She had a passion for painting and art before in RL and Second Life offered her more ways to express herself, sculptures, digital art and buildings. Kicca is a friend of Nessuno Myoo, with who he also worked together on a LEA project in 2013. More information can be found in the notecard accompanying the exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli. More of Kicca’s work can be seen on Kicca Igaly’s flickr page.

Nessuno Myoo installation “Out” at La Maison d’Aneli is a tribute to Jurij A. Gagarin’s flight into space in 1961.
What if Gagarin was launched today, in the present day, for the first time in orbit around the earth?
“Out” is a tribute to him, to his deeds, and to all those people who (literally) threw their hearts over the obstacle and maybe, just for a moment, they had a desire never to go back.
(taken from the accompanying notecard)

The installation is set under a red to orange sky. Either select “Use Shared Environment” or set your enviroment to “TOR BIG SUN – Safarion” to see “Out” like the artist wanted it to be seen. It consists of a vulcano-like mountain and I first thought I could walk up in spirals – I couldn’t and had to fly (ggos that we can in Second Life). Above the top of the vulcano/mountain you can see a space ship and the lonely astronaunt reaching out into the space, The space ship reminded me a bit ouf Steampunk, a popular theme in Second Life. The setting provides an idea with how almost primitive gear this first flight was done – and it was a brave mission.

Nessuno Myoo is in Second Life for 14 years and has a blog (in Italien) and a flickr page.

Sasha (arivalhagan) is in Second Life for more than 7 years. She writes about herself: “My personal acronym: NAA – Not An Artist! I think being an artist is one of the pinnacles of an existence. I don’t think I’ve reached it. That said, I do like photography a lot. The principle of my exhibition is very simple: to allow you to feel you are being seen. Not necessarily watched, but considered, questioned, appreciated, desired, questioned, loved, admired … And then let you imagine what stories are hidden behind all these glances less simple than they appear at first glance

In her skybox at La Maison d’Aneli Sasha features about 10 picture objects consisting of several layers, partly formed in a U-Shape. Hence the pictures look different depending on your viewing angle. She wrote: “The exhibition is meant to make you feel a bit tripped out and surprised or seduced by shapes and colors that you didn’t see at first glance or at first passage. Play with your camera, and sometimes, with caution try other lights than midnight. Play with the dog lamps (ON/OFF). Look at what is happening around your field of vision.”
I tried and played around a bit, as the pictures have several layers and some are still transparent you can create very specific pictures yourself with them. I loved it. Sasha succeeded in motivating the visitor to play around and to create own eye-catching pictures.
The name of her exhibition is “Pareidolia”, which is the tendency for perception to impose a meaningful interpretation on a nebulous stimulus, usually visual, so that one sees an object, pattern, or meaning where there is none (from wikipedia).
Sasha’s art can also be seen at Sasha (arivalhagan)’s flickr page.

I know Vroum Short as the owner of VeGeTaL PLaNeT. I peeked at it several times but never found the time to really visit it and to write an extra blog entry about it. The VeGeTaL PLaNeT also hosted Aneli Abeyante’s La Maison d’aneli for about a year. VeGeTaL PLaNeT is gone but there’s now the VeGeTaL PLaNeT Gallery (read about it here and here)
Vroum Short is a French SL artist since 2007. She works with lights and light effects, sometimes also very colourful. Vegetal Planet Gallery a world where everything becomes possible and achievable where the barriers of reality fade away to let the imagination flood it with life.
Vroum has a store for her art on the marketplace and a flickr account.

Vroum Short’s installation “Bubble Show” at La Maison d’Aneli is fitting to what I saw of her before. I room filled with permanent changing blue and purple and white structures, with bubbles that fly around and reflect the light. It is a big room and you don’t know where to look at first, you get lost in the light and by the bubbles. Actually you and “sit” in the bubbles and relax and watch as your avatar flows around. Great light effects!

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.”
Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it. It inspired me.

Art in Second Life 2021 (101) “Ordinary People” by Melusina Parkin

Melusina Parkin invited me to the opening of her newest exhibition named “Ordinary People” on Wednesday, Ocotober 13th, at Vibes Art Gallery.

Vibes Art Gallery is an example of the transformation of industrial warehouses into a modern exhibition space. It consists of two buildings and a court between them. The court is used for events. While one building has one large exhibition room, the other building has two rooms, that are connected though.
Melusina Parkin’s exhibition extends over the whole Vibes Art Gallery and it is quite particular for Melusina, as she leaves her general theme of minimalism for this exhibtion – at least for a tiny bit.

Ordinary People showcases – to no surprise – just ordinary people. The connected exhibition space in one building showcases monochrome pictures of Melu at the walls, in the other building are coloured pictures. They are all taken in Second Life and have one thing in common – they show people in daily situations.
Melusina Parkin’s photos tend towards minimalism, which is Melu’s main inclination: simple details from daily life or usual landscapes are the subject of mostly empty scenes, stressing voids, space, geometries, lights; this reveals hidden meanings or pushes the observer to give them her/his own one. Her favorite subjects are wide landscapes, city views, industrial environments, popular lifestyles and daily objects … and now she added people to her pictures. But still her pictures impress by their simplicity and by forcing the spectator to foucs on the few details.

But there’s more to see at “Ordinary People“. Melusina added static figures to the exhibtion. Not just one, she added enough to liven up the exhibition. And these figures are part of the exhibition. You see ordinary people on the pictures and visiting the exhibtion. Melusina wrote about “Ordinary people“:
“The photos of this exhibition put together my interest in human images and my experience in shooting objects, choosing subjects that stay on the thin border between living beings and things that features the virtual world: the “puppets” (or “dolls”) that we often meet when we visit a Second Life places. Like avatars, they are made of pixels; like statues and mannequins, they don’t talk, neither move. They could be seen as objects, as parts of the decor, but at a closer look they reveals to have expressions and their still poses show activities.
The images of this exhibit show that frozen humanity, that silent crowd that populate many Second Life places; the gallery of their portraits could be seen as a collection of human types. It’s both an exercise of “street photography” and a kind of tribute to these pixel beings who can’t act neither talk.”

Once again you find a table with the books sold by Melusina Parkin. It is located in the passage between the two rooms with the monochrome pictures. Those who are regular visitors to Melusina Parkin’s exhibitions know these books already:
Melusina All-in-One Exhibits allow you to keep at home the whole exhibit you visited and loved. It’s an alternative kind of the exhibit catalogue: you can hang the object on your home’s walls and enjoy the changing images. They come in four versions, that you can choose according to your home style: plain or framed, changing image by touch or in random loop. The objects are set as modifiable, so you can adapt them to your walls.

Melusina Parkin is in Second Life since September 2008. She has been a fashion manager, a journalist, a furniture creator, a builder, a decorator and a photographer. Her work as a photographer has been showcased in more than 50 exhibitions – from which I saw just a few. Melusina has a flickr account which counts more than 13,000 (!) photographs. Extensive collections of her photos can be seen also on her blog Virtual Exhibits and on some slideshows on Youtube (links also under this post).
There’s also an online book with her Second Life exhibits 2011-2019 here.
Melusina Parkin has an own gallery at Time Portal and an own store for Art Deco furniture called “Melu Deco”. Melusina also owns a second place (Melu Space) with another gallery (Minimum Gallery), a bookstore and another “Melu Deco” inworld store.

Thank you for another great exhibition, Melusina. You extended your art carefully to another field not leaving your characteristic style. I enjoyed my visit a lot.
Many thanks to Eviana Raider (Eviana Robbiani) for providing the space for the art and for enabling this great exhibition. As far as Melusina knows the part of “Ordinary People” with the coloured pictures in the large exhibition hall  shall stay open for visitors until October 24th, the other part a bit longer.

Diary 2021 (134) October 5th/6th pet’s trial (II)

There’s not much to report about Tuesday, October 5th – at least for during the day. I met Mistress in the later monring for half an hour and we met in the afternoon for 2 hours. We spent our time together standing at clubs and looking good. We had a chate here and there but mostly amoung us and just enjoyed time together.

We had a relaxed night at home. First pet (Newlifeloading) and Flo were present and Flo, Mistress and I played a skipee together. Then we moved on to our club and continued talking with pet. As it is her trial we and she have to make the most of our time together to get known to each ohter even better. slave Holly joined us there. She came at the right time as I had to pee *winks*.

Tuesday, October 5th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme, at home and at Carnal Intentions with slave Holly, Flo and pet

We stayed in our club until Flo and later pet had left for bed, then we moved on to Carnal Intentions where we later also met Elena and Ebony.

Wednesday, October 6th, was a bit alike. Mistress and I spent 2 hours together in the afternoon at Puerto Esclava and club Domme a Domme. We caught up with our news and we had a few chats. Msot of the time we stood around looking good *winks*. But it was enjoyable.

Wednesday, October 6th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava and at club Domme a Domme

At night Mistress, Flo and I played a skipee together while our pet Sun watched. slave Holly came inworld right in time when we had finsihed our game. We went to our decking that night to provide a ride on Bronco to pet. Our old pony was a bit reluctant and it took several tries to get the scripts running properly. But then it was fun to watch again. Now pet knows what we mean with “call the fire brigade”.

Wednesday, October 6th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home, at Psi’s realm and at Carnal Intentions with Flo, slave Holly and pet

After the little show we went to Psi’s realm shortly and then after Floa nd pet had left to bed we went to Carnal Intentions with slave Holly.

Art in Second Life 2021 (100) “Duet” by Evie and Dutch Ireman @ The 22 art space

I got an invitation for the latest exhibition at “The 22” art space in Bellisseria, that opened October, 2nd. The exhibtion is named “Duet”. It features the art of Evie (Eve Pearl) and Dutch Ireman, a duet of two photographers, couples of images and geminate ideas.

The concept behind it was born more or less by chance. At first, the gallery curators selected four pictures of each artist’s established production and suggested that Evie and Dutch completed the sets of images in a way that would make some sense to them. The results came with a positive surprise: even if each photographer didn’t know who else would join them in the exhibition, they provided the gallery with photos that could be arranged in sets of two. In other words, the concept for the exhibition just emerged from that: there were duets – both of pictures and of ways to think of those photographs.” (taken from the accompanying notecard of the exhibition)

In order to underline that concept, other elements have been placed in the gallery, together with the pictures. They are some daily, common items, that people generally think of as forming duos or tend to see as halves of a certain unit. Of course, there is no intention to draw attention from the photographs to other objects, they are just a detail, a way to actually emphasize the dualism that characterizes “Duet”, the exhibition.” (taken from the accompanying notecard of the exhibition)

The objects are everyday life items, that occur as pairs like gloves, shoes, salt and pepper.

Evie (Eve Pearl) and Dutch Ireman were both new artists for me and I couldn’t find our mach about them. If they didn’t know of eachother is it a nice coincidence that both joined Second Life almost at the same time almost 13 years ago – another duet. You can see more of their art on Evie (Eve Pearl)’s flickr  and Dutch Ireman’s flickr pages.

The 22 Art space is a gallery in Bellisseria, a continent with many Second Life prime members homes. The gallery is on one of these homes. It is owned and curated by Randy Firebrand and Ricco Saenz. The gallery’s name refers to the Modern Art Week in 1922 in Brazil, also known locally as “The 22 Week”.
Thank you Ricco Saenz and Randy Firebrand for enabling and presenting this exhibition. You guys have great ideas and found an outstanding concept to present Evie and Dutch’s artwork. I enjoyed my visit a lot.
“Duet” by Evie and Dutch Ireman @ The 22 art space” shall stay open until December 11th.
