Simploring 2019 (45) Knitland by Cica Ghost

When I got inworld Sunday, April 14th, in the earlier afternoon, I found an invitation from Cica Ghost to visit her newest installation “Knitland” and I followed her invitation immediately.

Sometimes I get sad… but then I think about yarn and everything is fine 🙂” is Cica’s quote that accompanies this installation.

At the landing point you get already an idea about the theme of Knitland. The ground is made of yarn, knitted of green and blue yarn and decorated with daisies. A board reminds you of setting your viewer to advanved light and to enable shadows. You can grab a yarny avatar in 5 different colours, I choose purple for myself. The yarny avatars have a Cica-like look with their big curios eyes. Using the yarny avatar adds to the expierience as no humans appear anymore in this world of yarn.

Already when I wore the yarny avatar I smiled diving into Cica’s world. The yarny avatars are quite big, yet in Cica’s world they are still small in comparision with the environment. Time to explore Knitland! In the middle of the installation sits a huge girl – knitting of course. It seems as if she created all of this and goes on and on and on….

You’ll find many of Cica-ish animals at Knitland and they’re all made of yarn as well as all flowers, large and small, all trees and all little houses are made of yarn. I saw all kind of animals, a cat (of course), a giraffe, an elephant, a snake, some snails, chicken, a bunny, a donkey, flamingos to name just a few.

But it is not just about knitted animals with Cica eyes, there’re also fruits and vegetables knitted like strawberries, carrots and cabbage. The girl is knitting a green paths that leads over the island, you can follow it or jump around anywhere else freely.
I also discovered a mug with a ladder leading up to it. It was not that easy to steer my yarny avatar upwards and when I arrived a snail peeked out of the mug. I tried several times to initiate the snail to get out again, but I didn’t find out how. but later I saw the snail peeking out of the mug again. It was just a coincidence, the snail peeks out of her mug home when she wants to *winks*.

Once again, Cica made my day. She conjured a smile on my face and I enjoyed diving into her knitted world.
Knitland is another masterpiece from Cica Ghost. As usual you’ll never know how long this installation might be available. Go and see it yourself.

Thank you a lot for making me smile, Cica!
