Wednesday, March 1st, I found time for a short but very impressive simploring tour. A blog post from Inara “The Architect’s Playground in Second Life” caught my attention. The Architect’s Playground is a full region installation by Methias Kira.
Upon your landing you are surrounded by light, by colours, by particles and it is that overwhelming that you loose orientation first, at least I lost it and fell down from the platform in the sky to the ground. I first thought ok, you have to explore flying then, so I began to fly upwards until I reached the next platform. Then I recognized that there are quite broad and lighted transparent walkways between the different also transparent platforms. Hence I walked over these ways traveling from one scenery to the next always getting new viewing angels, new bright hovering spirals, other blazing particles in all colours of the rainbow, new impressions.
This installation is a another piece of virtual and temporary art showing the possibilities of Second Life. In one word amazing! And everybody will see it different, from another viewing angel, at another moment of this constantly moving installation. I took a lot of pictures, a lot more than I will publish here. This installation is a “must-see” piece for everyone interested in digital art.
