Art in Second Life 2020 (54a) VeGeTaL PLaNeT Gallery – Addendum

After my blog entry about the visit of VeGeTal PLaNet Gallery was published on August 31st, I had contact with Eyelinea, Adwehe, Aneli Abeyante and Vroum Short. They all told me that the VeGeTaL PLaNeT Gallery is going to open officially on September 12th and 13th at 12:30 pm SLT.
Eylinea told me that her pictures are actually animated, yet slowly. No suprise that I was not sure about it when I visited.

This addendum has three reasons. Firstly I wanted to point out to that VeGeTal PLaNet Gallery isn’t opened officially yet and there still might be some changes. Secondly I wanted to point out to the opening events on September 12th and 13th at 12:30 pm SLT. But the main reason is that I missed out a room, that is really worth a visit and needs to be mentioned. The room is next to the Chat Noir Club in the basement and you can easily enter it from the club. Vroum told me about it:  “It’s a room called Immersiv’Art. This room is an invitation to travel in different paintings, by clicking on the TP just next to the painting, you are transported in the universe of the painting, it is possible to walk inside the creation. Eylinea, Adwehe, Sasha (arivalhagan) and myself have been able to create different atmospheres.

Take a trip into art – Immersiv’ Art by Vroum Short, Eylinea, Adwehe and Sasha (arivalhagan)

I went there Tuesday, Sept 1st, and I was really thrilled! Once again the installations are animated so they change not only depending on your viewing angle but also in themselves. If you take pictures, there might be not a single one reproducible. And actually I think my snapshots look really artful – but it is not really my own art!
There are 10 pieces of immersiv’ art. Again I took a lot of pictures. For this addendum I picked just one picture of each installation as this entry would become too long if I described each one in detail. These pictures are just little teasers of these 10 art world. You could lose yourself in each of them for quite a long time.

In some of them are opportunities to sit and watch how the installation changes. Vroum’s installations are colourful, the installation “Mirrors” fits to the work of Vroum with a more technical look. Eylinea’s installation “Ghost Lights” once again plays with spirals and colours, while her installation “In and Out” doesn’t fit into this scheme.

Adwehe’s “Lucid Dreams” has several different levels and I can’t really find a good description of it. You have to see it! And unfortunately I lacked time to explore her and all the other installations more in detail. But they are all intriguing and pull you into other worlds. I never saw anything of Sasha (arivalhagan) before. The installation “Not a Maze” is extending over several levels which are quite different. Not all of Sasha’s work is animated, but the pictures on the first level do change with the viewing angle … and there are moving elements on the other levels.

Vroum also gave me a picture book of the VeGeTaL PLaNeT, the sim she owned for 12 years. The picture book is one of the free gifts that you can grab at the VeGeTal PLaNet Gallery. It’s worth having a look into it, beautiful pictures of a virtual place that isn’t available anymore. But Vroum saved a little bit of this place at the ground level of the new VeGeTal PLaNet Gallery, a garden. The garden crowned my second visit to this new gallery. Here’s also a direct landmark landmark to the VeGeTaL PLaNeT – Garden.

So – there’s a lot to discover at VeGeTaL PLaNeT Gallery! I’m sure, that I’m not the only one looking forward to seeing more art at this gallery. Good luck for the opening event, Vroum, and thank you for the hint. I really enjoyed my short immersion into your art and into those of Eylinea, Adwehe and Sasha.

    Thank you for the update. I will visit the location again on September 12th. In your first blog post on Vegetal Planet you referred to my blog. I visited the gallery, because it is simply listed in the SL Destination Guide (see here: vegetal-planet-gallery). There is no mention of an opening on September 12th in the description. So I assumed that the gallery was officially open.
