Simploring 2020 (23) Obscura Harmonium & Obscura Arboreous

For my simploring tour on Sunday, February 23rd, I picked “Obscura Harmonium” from scoop.it SL Destinations. Obscura Harmonium is a plot of a (moderate) full region. It is connected with a bridge to Obscura Arboreous. Both build one large plot and are owned by Aengel (Angelkitty Skizm) and Phyre (Lotus Wemyss). A flying whale is circling above Obscura Harmonium & Obscura Arboreous adds a touch of fantasy to both places. In the landmark description it is tagged with “Photography, Music, Hangout, Romance, Live Singers

Obscura Harmonium & Obscura Arboreous – bird’s eye overview

Obscura Harmonium is the place I landed, right in front ot a large building, supposedly an opera house from 1852, that is named Obscura Harmonium. At the court in front of building 2 scuptures of Mistero Hifeng caught my eye “Due Minuti” and “Io e Te”. His art is quite unique and easily to recognize.
Inside of the opera house you find a big event area, a bar, more art and you can walk to the adjacent building and enjoy a winter garden. The opera house looks very stylish.

The second building on the Obscura Harmonium parcel is a radio station “OH Radio”. I strongly recommend to have a look inside. The architecture is clearly from the 1920ies or 1930ies with a nice touch of Bauhaus.

Obscura Harmonium is connected by a bridge to Obscura Arboreous, which has a lovely, peaceful and romantic setting. Coming from the bridge you reach a little court with a cafe, a gazebo with another piece of art from Mistero Hifeng (Non potra’  mai finire), another gazebo in the center and a library building. This court is the heart of the Obscura Arboreous community. The court and all the connecting paths are public as well as a very nice place to sit and cuddle by the shore with a prefect view to the lighthouse.

Aengel (Angelkitty Skizm) writes about Obscura Harmonium & Obscura Arboreous in her profile: “This is my baby, I create it with my bestfriend Phyre. We change it up and add as we find new things to showcase. Perhaps, inspire another creator to make more things we can collect. Come, visit my heart. Stay, and cling to the community that’s budded from ashes.

And in Phyre (Lotus Wemyss)’s profile I found this text about Obscura Harmonium & Obscura Arboreous: “Home, Sanctuary. Not always perfect, but perfectly suited for quirkyness. Not a club, just a dream of the possibility of bringing the music culture, art, and fashion together as one. We attemept to provide a place for anyone to use, to present music or art in a fashion that shows the passion behind, the story. The mind. A place to hang out, take pictures, use the facility or crash if you need a temporary home

I enjoyed my visit to Obscura Harmonium & Obscura Arboreous, a perfect time out for a Sunday morning. A place to hang out and dream or just to take a few  (in my case many) pictures. Thank you Aengel and Phyre for keeping up your place and your community.
