Art in Second Life 2022 (27) Green planet by Cica Ghost

Saturday, March 5th, Cica Ghost opened her newest installation named “Green planet“. As usual Cica provides a short quote in the landmark description: “There is another world, but it is inside this one (Paul Eluard).

As already the poster gives away, this installation is bit particular. Upon landing you get instructions on how to adjust your viewer settings: use shared environment, advanced lighting and shadows from sun and projectors. It is importnat to use the shared environment, as it is part of Cica’s installation. After setting my viewer accordingly, I entered green planet. My first thought was that I’d explore small intestine. The world is green, the ground is covered with kind of a green slime, the sky is red like blood. From the ground grow simple green plants and funnel-shaped tubes. You walk through openings with green stalactites. My second thought was that of a Green planet with aliens, simply a fantasy planet with fantasy beings, ready to be explored.

The next thing I noticed were all the strange being that either are on the ground or kind of relax on platforms.There “Cica-ish” big eyes are watching you. And of course they are all way bigger than you. Some have big open mouths and at least through one mouth you can walk through to enter Cica’s shop for this installation. You can purchase 2 different “Octaliens” and 6 other “Aliens”.

After a while the “Aliens” didn’t look scary anymore, I began to have a closer look at them and I enjoyed. What else? There are some green pieces of rock laying on the ground, some are levitating above the ground. I know that Cica has often places to sit or other activities hidden in her isntallations and hence I looked out for them. I just fond that you can “sit” on the levitating rocks and then you fly with them either sitting, or dancing or doing a handstand. Be careful they move quite jerkily. But it is fun!

What else? Quite in the center of the installation is a rocket, a space ship just as kids would draw it. The question remains, did the aliens come with it .. or do they use it to explore other planets? The visitor may guess. The main purpose of this installation is to have fun and to see the world with children eyes, to let your mind wander and to escape from the real life. By the way – I didn’t find any cat on the whole Green planet not even a green cat *winks*.

Thank you Cica for another great installation. It made me smile and I did get to other thoughts, something important these days in Europe.
