Saturday, October 1st, I got some time for simploring again. I used the destination guide to select where to go and decided to visit Evre which is listed under art in the guide: “Time is everything or is it nothing at all? Experience Evre from Tahiti Rae and delve into the power of your mind, merging the paranormal and unexplained with new quantum physics. Evre step outside your dream…and walk right back into it? Maybe we exist everywhere, all the time. Travel through time and then out of it. Exhibit open through Dec. 31” (taken from destination guide about Evre).
That sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Upon landing on Evre I tried to figure out how this journey into time is done. There’re several boards at the landing point and one of them describes how to discover.
It is quite simple. On the ground level there’re 12 clocks spreaded over the sim. Each clock is a teleport hub to another world. After visiting one world you tp back by clicking on the couple that stands where you arrive.
Each world deals with time be it that you travel into another time or be it that you deal with life beyond death or with parapsychology. For sure everyone will interpret and experience the worlds different. For me it was fun on one side but it also made me thinking. Fun was for sure the world of the dinosaurs – as they live there next to people of the Stone age. I found it amusing to stand next to the really small dinosaurs and to see the Stone age people hunting them with spears. As opposed to the Psi pavillion left me thinking, in particular the board about strange facts and stories around the deaths of some celebrities.
Last but not least I also stood between an inclined tower of the World Trade Center and the sinking Titanic, catastrophies of the modern world of which the first one is burned into my memory as if it were just yesterday. Evre is a particular experience in Second Life, something you really don’t see every day and an art project trying to realize the meaning of time and life. Really impressive and worth a visit!
