Simploring 2018 (104) Lullaby by Cica Ghost

On Tuesday, December 11th, I got an invitation from Cica to see her newest installation “Lullaby” that opened that very day. Spontaneously I visited “Lullaby by Cica Ghost” right away.

Lullaby by Cica Ghost – advertising poster, overview and Cica’s snail

Lullaby is once again a meagre hilly island with some steep single rocks and rock arches which reminded me of Monument Valley in Utah, US. But when you keep the windlight setting, wich I did except for the overview zoom out picture, the rocks are not red but the whole scenery is in dark greeen and blue colours.

There’re again fantasy animals and bugs living at Lullaby. Some of them have similarities with real animals and bugs. Right next to the landing point is a huge snail with large telescope eyes. Bugs will fly around you during your visit. They are huge as well and they have a trunk, cute!
If you’re not alone at Lullaby you might see other visitors flying around sitting on bugs. You can’t sit on the bugs flying around you, but you can get a bug to sit on and to fly around with on the top of one of the steep single rocks. You can keep the bug as a gift by the way and probably scare someone using it on other sims *winks*.

Most of Cica’s animals at Lullaby are stationary, maybe a particular kind of worms. What you see is there heads and the big “Cica”-eyes. They are scary only on the first glance. After you’re settled in into the scenery, they look harmless and peaceful. One of them though opens it’s mouth, ready for eating you. No worries, the mouth is spacious enough and will open again, so that you can leave again.

Quite in the center of Lullaby, is one arch with a house. On the roof sits a “Cica”-girl with wide opened eyes. The girl is very pale and she looks a but scared. She fits to the poem Cica Ghost quoted in the landmark description for Lullaby:

“Another day goes by
And I don’t wash my hair
Another night is spent
Wishing you were here
My skin it looks so pale
What’s that over there?”

from “Lullaby For An Insomniac” by Kate Nash

More animals? Yes! A large teddy bear, a butterfly and a spider. The spider can be found close to the arch with the house and nearby you’ll see the spider net.

I had fun exploring Lullaby. Somehow Cica’s animals became friends of mine in the meanwhile. I look at them to see all details and am not scared. At Lullaby, the animals became part of the island. They’re integrated into the hilly landscape an into the steep single rocks. Lullaby is a fantasy world, a world to retreat and to let your mind wander. And the animals never sleep, even when they look asleep – insomniacs.

I searched to find one of Cica’s cats hidden at Lullaby, but I didn’t find it. Cica Always hides one of her cats somewhere in her installations. Maybe the cat digged a hole and is hidding in it? Maybe the cat is even sleeping in the hole surrounded by a sleepless world of insomniacs? If you find the cat, let me know please.

Thank you for another great installation, Cica. Once again, I enjoyed seeing your art a lot.
