Simploring 2018 (45) Silent

My simploring tour Wednesday, May 16th, led me to “Silent“. I found the landmark together with several pictures in AJ’s Second Life – Travel Guide. Thank you, AJ (anyajurelle).

There’s not much information about “Silent” – “Hang out, lounge, explore the art, Photographer Machinama friendly!” is all you get with the landmark description. You should turn media on, use the region’s windlight setting and set your draw distance to at least 300m.

Silent” is surreal and impresses with it’s visual effects. The ground texture of the sim background hills is very colourful and is moving, hence the sim background looks like waves, coloured waves. The windlight setting results in a purple/violet sky and you can also see an aurora borealis.

The sim itself consists of several islands, that are not connected, some are flat, some are rocky and high. There are some buildings that look surreal just because of the purple sky. Near the landing you encounter several pieces of art by Mistero Hifeng, an artist who’s work you recognize immediately by is particular style. You will find other pieces of art from different artists spread all over the sim.
Also quite outstanding is a huge white sculpture of a drowning person between the islands. You just see the head and the arms. It’s called “[GW] Liquid Sculpture II” by Groll (Groll Greggan).

There are places to sit and mediate watching the scenery. Big coloured balls fall from the sky onto the ground or onto the sea and roll amd bump into eachother before vanishing. Air Angel (aair), the owner of “Silent“, created them. These media balls, the sim’s background with the coloured waves, the purple sky, the few buildings and the art do all mix together into a fitting composition. Air Angel selected an psychedelic music stream that also adds to the experience.

Silent” is a piece of art itself, that you should see. Thank you, Air Angel!
