Pink

The title of this post is a bit misleading intentionally. This post is about Pink Floyd – Pink Floyd in Second Life to be more precisely. Again I came across it following Inara Pey’s blog. Her post is titeled “When Pink Floyd eats your sim in Second Life“. This place is temporarily a real homage to Pink Floyd, their music and their art. Serene Footman, who owns the sim “Furillen“, wrote a full decription of what you can see here and titeled it “Pink Floyd ate my sim“.

One of the attractions is Battersea Power Station which is famous as it it appeared on the cover of Pink Floyd’s 1977 album Animals, on which it was photographed with the group’s inflatable pink pig floating above it. Inside of the building I felt beamed back into the 1970ies. The huge giant hall is filled with fog steadily changing in all colours of the rainbow. There’s a seating goup in one corner, a big picture of Battersea Power Station and a “Fower Power” Volkswagen Transporter.

But there’s a lot more to discover, way too much to list it here. I recommend reading the above mentioned post in the Furillen blog (“Pink Floyd ate my sim“). In the Furillen blog you will also find a full list of all objects from Pink Floyd that you can discover here on one spot in 3D. And there’re lots of really great pictures, just have a look into the blog “Furillen – love of (a minimalist) life“.

Of course the music stram provided is Pink Floyd. Actually I read that it is a 13 hour play list featuring every studio album made by Pink Floyd, in chronological order. While we were visiting we heard “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” (1975) and we, Mistress Jenny and me, just stood there enjoying the music. And even slave cecy, who accompanied us, just knelt silently and relaxed. By the way, the slideshow at the wall in the pictures above and below is one of 2 slideshows that contain around 800 (!) pictures.

Art in SL is temporary. We can keep it in pictures and in our memories but it is digital and mostly short-lived. The Pink Floyd installation might be gone soon again.
Really fitting to our visit to Furillen was a strange avatar that we just saw shortly. I managed to take a picture. He could have appeared on a Pink Floyd cover in my humble opinion.
