Art in Second Life 2020 (41) Summertime by Cica Ghost

I got a invitatation to visit “Summertime“, Cica Ghost’s newest installation that opened Friday, July 10th. I was prevented from going there right away, but I found some time today.

The thought that Cica selected for ther newest installation can be found in the landmark description: “Summertime is always the best of what might be. (Charles Bowden)

Summertime by Cica Ghost – landing and overview

I like Cica’s installations as they always succeed to make me smile. This time Cica created happy cows and placed them in a Summer environment. You’re asked to keep the selected windlight, to switch “Advanced Lighting Model” on and to use shadows set to “Sun/Moon + Projectors”.

Impressions of Summertime by Cica Ghost (1)

Summertime is an island with some nice hills, the ground is a bit structured like a chess board, it has green ad dry areas. Spread over the sim are clay objects, some looking like vases of flowers, other like open boxes or even old wagons. Trees and flowers grow in or out the clay objects. They have blossoms in different colours. Yet the all look as if the crave for more water ….

The objects do also provide shadow and if you sit in them on a chair or bed, you’re in the shadow. And there are cows, alone or in groups and they all have the typical Cica-ish look, funny and peacefully and with google-eyes. And you hear their muuuuuh every once in a while. The cows are not the only inhabitants. There’s also a laying battery for chicken, so you can have eggs and milk for your Summer breakfast!

And yes you also find a cat at Summertime! I won’t give away where, but it is not hard to find. What else? A clay helicopter to sit in and to flay around and a clay cinema where you can watch a Cica matchstick figure riding a bicycle. And there’s also a shop where you can purchase a cow (or two or more *winks*)

No attempt to interpret anything – just enjoy Cica’s Summertime!
Thank you, Cica 🙂
