Simploring 2018 (67) Daydream by Cica Ghost

Today’s entry is a bit out of the more or less chronical order of our blog. The reason is that Cica Ghost opened her newest installation “Daydream” on August 10th. I got an invite from her and I visited Saturday, August 11th. As you never know how long Cica’s installations stay opened until she creates something new, I decided to publish my report timely, so that there’s enough time for you to visit yourself.
The thought Cica gives us on our way visiting “Daydream” is in the short landmark description “Lose yourself in a daydream…

Daydream is an island, but this time it is not meagre although there’re some hills and rock. You’ll find colourful trees and quite some lovely fields of flowers. The landing is quite in the middle of the sim from where you can discover it on foot. I didn’t find any of the famous Cicamobiles this time.

Daydream offers a broad spectrum of know and unknown characters and beings created by Cica nicely spread over the island and you encounter them on your way exploring it. Quite close to the landing are two snails in a field of flowers. They look at eachother and the scene is very peaceful. As always Cica’s beings are quite large. There are two turtles and they even don’t mind when you walk on their carapace.
For me the two creatures, that look like big squirrels and eat strawberries, were really impressive and although they look like little dinosaurs there are not scary at all. There’s one being, I want to mention in particular, a crossbred of a goat and an eagle with an human face, sitting on a rock like supervising the whole island and the scenery. You can see it from the landing point and from other spots on the island.

At Daydream you will find a few places to sit and even to cuddle. One of these plaves is s cave in a single quite outstanding tree, which is even furnished. But there’re some more, just look out!
Another element of Daydream are Cica’s cats (well know from her installation 50 cats, read here in this blog). Some of them roam around at Daydream and made me smile.

Apropos smile, Daydream seems not to have a really strong message, it is a dream, a place to let your mind wander, to enjoy new and old elements of Cica’s work, it’s colourful, whimsical, and peaceful.
I don’t want to forget that Cica herself immersed into Daydream disguised as a black cat. I found her close to the landing point and I assume that she’s sticks around there daydreaming when she’s online.

Inara Pey has already published a blog post about her visit and as always it is quite elaborated and I recommend reading it “Cica’s Dayfream in Second Life“)

Thank you, Cica for your newest installation. As always I enjoyed my visit and I really liked what I saw, so much to discover!
