Simploring 2018 (57) Another Planet by Cica Ghost

I became a regular visitor of Cica Ghost installation. I simply like her particular style and her art often is soothing to the soul as while you’re diving deep into the phantasy worlds created by her. This time it is Another Planet.

You arrive on a deserted unreal planet. There’s no vegetation and the rocky ground is structured with patterns simliar to printed integrated circuits. There’re no buildings but a clutter of melted frames and structures that look like leftovers of former buildings that were totally destroyed by an explosion or something like that. Some meteorites hoover over the planet like satellites.

Another planet is inhabited – of course – by aliens. I noticed 2 different forms of one and the same species, two genders perhaps. While the first form stands with bodies that look like pyramid cake made of rusty iron, the other form is larger and lies around. Both dont move. The heads and faces of the aliens are dominated by huge black eyes.

Upon your arrival you can decide to discover Another Planet as a human or as an alien. Cica provides the alien body at the landing point. I first explored as an alien and made a second tour as human. I met Cica herself in her alien form and the time I was visiting Bryn Oh was with her. There are two ways to travel around, either on foot or flying using one of the different planes or flying platforms. When flying you just sit and watch as you can’t steer the plane or platform.

Find out if you’re still human, observe yourself from another planet” is the quote Cica Ghost choose for her installation. It is from Benny Bellamacina, who’s a songwriter, musician, poetic humorist and children’s author. Indeed the humans do look as being the strangers, the aliens on Another Planet. And the aliens living on Another Planet seem to watch the strange beings, the human visitors, through their big eyes. Yes, maybe we should look on humans and on our planet from a more distant point to get things right again and to preserve humanity.

More impressions from my visit to Another Planet by Cica Ghost

Cica impressed me once again with her creativity. It was fun exploring Another Planet and to get out from everyday life entering a peaceful fantasy world even within Second Life. Thank you very much, Cica!
