Cica’s Donkeys are presented once again by Sim Quarterly, a sim and initiative of Electric Monday:
Art and the virtual world, Second Life© are very similar — you are able to both find yourself and immerse yourself (and maybe even lose yourself) in something totally unlike what you already know. The experiences you gain help you grow and form new opinions about the world. That is what I hope this sim can provide over time. I am very excited to bring to you a quarterly art project by way of The Sim Quarterly.
The project features one creator every 3 months (every quarter) as an artist in residence. The purpose of the sim is so that residents can experience something new and even create a community.
Learn more about Sim Quarterly at their website.

As I expected already I had a lot of fun visiting Cica’s donkeys. They look “Cica-ish”, are of course very tall, and are happy. Their i-a, i-a, ia can be heard all over the place. Many “Cica-ish” houses are all around the island, which is quite full of flowers and trees, mainly coconut trees. That is a little bit unusual for Cica but fits very well.

Quite close to the landing you find a house with a donkey store inside. And yes, you can buy these happy animals – 10 different donkeys. But there are more animals at Donkeys by Cica Ghost. I saw many seagulls, I saw butterflies, snails and… yes, cats!

There is no deeper sense – at least not for me. Donkeys by Cica Ghost is just for having fun, for being childish and enjoy. There’re comparably many opportunities to sit, for example in the houses, and to watch the animals. I recommend to hoover with your muse over the objects … at one gateway you can stand and dance. Cica also place a litte tv in one house “Don’t touch” – and of course it means “touch!”, funny! You can also sit in a boat and watch the scenery from there.

In short: Donkeys by Cica Ghost are fun – a different fun these days before Christmas. I enjoyed my visit and it comnjured a smile in my face!
Thank you Cica for another great installation and thank you Electric Monday for your initiave and for hosting “Donkeys by Cica Ghost“.
