Art in Second Life 2020 (56) La Maison d’Aneli September/October

After the Summer break La Maison d’Aneli opened its doors again with a new exhibition on September 16th. La Maison d’Aneli features 8 artists with this exhibition: Milye Euhh (hurumi), Puce (titput), Sennaspirit Coronet, Neugaine Carter, ZackHerrMann, LaLie Sorbet, Belinda Baroque and Therese Carfagno. Each artist has an own skybox for a gallery or for an installation. Actually you visit 8 different exhibtions which are very different and provide an insight in the variety of art in a virtual world like Second Life. Some of these installations showcase art that you can’t experience in real life.

I visited before the official opening. The artists might have made some gradual changes in the meanwhile. The exhibtion is open until October 10th.

I started my visit with the art of Milye Euhh (hurumi). Milye is a French artist and in Second Life for 9 years. The installation uses the walls, the floor and the ceiling to create a fantasy world at night.

There are 2 big stages. Along the stairs that lead up to the stages are some of Milye’s pictures. On one stage is a collection of b/w pictures, playing with shadows, the other stage presents 3 large splitted pictures. The two stages are connected and the connecting platform is used as a meeting area with another picture, that is split into hexagons. One of the stages is decorated with big muffins and a teddy bear, as if there’s a children’s birthday party soon.

Puce (titput) is in Second Life for more than 4 years. According to the accompanying notecard, Puce was curious and began building, shaped prims and began building her own world. I never came across Puce before. What you see at La Maison d’Anelie is very impressive – a world using chess patterns, transparency, lights and shadows to compose a piece of art that you can walk through. Most elements are animated, so the installation changes permanently and I for my part had dificulties where to look at first.

Puce (titput) at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

Is it about chess? Yes, as there’s a chess board with figures. Is it about card games? Yes, cards show up, move and dissappear. Is it about dancing? Yes, there’s an ballerina dancing shown on a big screen and there’re dancing aniamtions available. It is about dresses? Yes, the dress of a maid (at least for me it looked like a maid dress) is shown a lot, turning and shining. Is it about light effects and othere effects? Yes, some areas can’t be seen from some position and hece show up when you walk through the installation. I can only say – I was impressed by Puce’s art.

I saw Sennaspirit Coronet’s art earlier this year when I visited the The Itakos Project and Art Gallery (read here), where she showcased portraits of couples in Second Life. At La Masion d’Aneli, Sennaspirit shows portrait pictures, pictures of avatars, pictures and faces that tell a story. They are presented on 3 floors. Some pictures are shown on several floors. In total there’re no more than 8 or 10 pictures (I didn’t count them).

Sennaspirit Coronet at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

Perhaps these persons or pictures do tell different stories when they are shown together with other pictures? The repetition of several pictures is confusing first, but them intriguing.
Sennaspirit Coronet joined Second Life in late 2006 as part of her RL work in academic publishing and started shooting images in Second Life end of 2007. She worked in the advertising and graphic design business, later worked on digital transformation of assets and publishing. Due to this background her portraits are very professional and artful.
Senna took breaks from Second Life on a few occasions but the opportunity to do creative work and to be with the many friends always brought her back.

Neugaine Carter is in Second Life for 13 years. Completely self-taught, Neugaine paints intermittently. He never exhibted his paintings in RL, hence what we see in Second Life is quite unique. Neugaine appreciates painting in oil, he likes playing with textures and thicknesses.

Neugaine Carter at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

Amoung the other installations at La Maison d’Aneli the presentaion of Neugaine Carter’s art is quite classic, a museum building with the paintings at the walls. The paintings are abstract and I wonder how large they might be in reality. Although they are all very different Neugaine has developed his own personal style.

ZackHerrMann is a French psychedelik artist from the French Riviera. He’s in Second Life since 2012. He writes about his work in the accompanying notecard about himself:
Early I was attracted by arts, nature was my first inspiration. Later I have discovered the Marvel Comics and that increase my drawning passion. I have done years of art school, than was trying to go to stylism school, but it was too expensive. So, I started to discover the nightlife, especially in the LGBT Community. There I got in touch with a ‘lil around Drag queen and the creature universe. I discovered the power of making creations with a PC, with Photoshop and other tools, with grapic tablet, etc.
With thoses new tools, a creature I made when i was younger was reborn, her name is Linda Cluster.

ZackHerrMann at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

His installation at La Maison d’Aneli is very impressive. It a quest “The Quest of the 8 Artefacts”. The installation extends over several levels. You’re in a kind of a treasury. The floor, the walls and the ceiling shine in yellow, gold, bronze and brown tones, permanently changing, a lot of fractals innumerous peices of art cover all areas. There’s a way through this quest and the 8 artefacts are shown along the way, yet honestly I did not even try to solve the quest. I just enjoyed the luxury and the art, the many many things you can discover here. It’s nothing I can easily describe. I hope my pictures provide an idea – best is to see it yourself.

Lalie Sorbet is a French artist and photographer who joined Second Live 12 years ago:
Lalie Sorbet lives and works between South India, on the Coromandel coast, Tamil Nadu and the south of France. She has this passion for creating images. She likes to explore all possibilities of expression: artistic videos or reports for different NGO, artistic director 3D for video games, collage informatic or not, watercolor painting , drawing, photography, advertising. Navigating between the worlds of insects, spiders, drops of water, human or animal portraits, trees, flowers or seeds and more, she offers a sensitive tribute to nature. Witnessing the beauty and diversity of our planet is a great joy for her and these days probably an obligation!” (taken from the accompanying notecard)

Lalie Sorbet at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

At La Maison d’Aneli we see a broad spectrum of her artful photographs and pictures, from watercolour, collages, computer graphics, photographs to drawings. They all are presented in a large room and they mirror in the floor which enhances the impression. Seen side by side the pictures melt into one style of art, one signature although each and every picture is unique and stands alone.

Belinda Baroque’s pictures are showcased in and outdoor scenario admist green meadows in front of a blue sky with some clouds. In the center of Belinda’s “gallery” is a large tree.

Belinda Baroque at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

I didn’t find out much about Belinda. She’s in Second Life since 13 years and is “just connected sometimes for photography” according to her profile. The text about her in the accompanying notecard is also quite short: “Virtual photography is just a pleasure among many others“, yet I couldn’t agree more.

Therese Carfagno came to Second Life in February 2007. Soon she got a job as a journalist, and met the most interesting artists in SL. Seeing so much creativity inspired her to start taking pictures herself. Therese thinks that taking pictures helps to look at the world a little closer – and there are so many wonders to see in SL:
I have no interest in calling myself an artist. I take snapshots. If I’m happy with the picture because of the motive, the colours, the people in it, or anything, I upload it to Flickr or exhibit it somewhere. That’s it. And if someone else like what I do, that’s even better.”

Therese Carfagno at La Maison d’Aneli September/October 2020

At La Maison d’Aneli her mainly black and white pictures are showcased in a dark room, sorted thematically. Her pictures capture moments, some are quite erotic in my opinion. Some other look like real life pictures. Well, I’m pretty sure they are not taken in SL but I won’t bet. The lines between the world are blurring sometimes.

The current exhibition stays opened at least until October 10th.
La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.
Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it. It always inspires me.

Diary 2020 (127) Sept 7th/8th Mistress takes her share

Monday I met with Mistress in the afternoon. We first caught up with our mutal news and of course I told Mistress about my intimate time with Angelique. Mistress seemed to be happy about it saying she appreciates my good relation to our niece. But then she also said she felt a little bit left out. I should learn about the consequences soon after. Mistress made me wear my elbow cuffs and the elegance collar in addition to the wrists cuffs that I wore already. Then she took me to club Domme a Domme where she sat down in one ot the chairs and had my kneeling at her feet leashed to the chair. Mistress summoned Angelique and then the two talked together. I knelt there feeling not very good and not at all confident. Angelique told me that Mistress forbid her any intimacies with my until further notice and she also told her that she would punish her if she doesn’t obey. Then Mistress took me home to our skybox.

Sept 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home and at club Domme a Domme with Angelique

Mistress did what she does really rarely. I had to strip and she spanked me hard with her bare hand before she said she wanted her part of the fun now. She stripped and made me lick her and had a huge orgasm. Positive side effect – I got my fix once again.
After she and I had dressed again Mistress used her fingers and made me cum. And finally I had to thank her kissing her butt in deep submission to her. Mistress was satisfied, she had her share of the fun, that Angelique and I had – and she wasn’t done yet.

At night Mistress Jenny took Angelique and me to the BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club. She had both of us leashed while we watched the crowd, talked, read profile and enjoyed. After a while Mistress asked me if we had a bed with lesbian animations for more than 2 avatars. I had several in my inventory. Mistress took us two to our loft skybox where I rezzed one of these beds. You might guess what happened next .. Mistress ordered Angelique and me to strip and stripped herself then we had a very interesting group sex experience licking eachother in a circle – and we came almost at the same time..pheewwww. As mentioned above, Mistress took her share of the fun and she did lifted the ban of intimacies between Angelique and me again. I assume that she had fun seeing how shocked Angelique and I were about it.

In the meanwhile slave Melissa had come inworld and I picked her up at home. We went to Mesmerize Dungeon to wind down and stayed there almost until midnight.

Sept 7th: Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita with slave Melissa at Mesmerize Dungeon

Tuesday, September 8th, I had another almost two hours with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. We caught up with our news from RL and then made a tour through the culbs. We visited Puerto Esclava, were at Mesmerize Dungeon, spent time at Heavy Bondage Club and had some time at Psi’s realm. We had several short chats in main and in IM and we talked with eachother.

Sept 8th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Mesmerize Dungeon, Heavy Bondage Club and at Psi’s realm

At night, Mistress Jenny and I were alone first and we played a round of Yahtzee. We were just done when I was interrupted by RL. When I returned Angelique and slave Flo were present and Mistress proposed to have a game of skipee as teams.
While we played Irina joined us. I had a few shorter roleplays with Irina at Puerto Esclava. She is the heiress of a slave trading company. I had seen her around at our sim a few times and took control of her the day before. She knelt at my side and lick my boots while we played.
Our game ended at flotime and slave Flo left to bed. Mistress, Angelique and I went to Mesmerize Dungeon with Irina for about half an hour and then we went to bed ourself. Hence there’s just one picture of that night.

Diary 2020 (126) Sept 5th / 6th A spontaneous intimate time with Angelique

Saturday, September 5th, I had a busy day in RL. Unexpectedly I managed to see Mistress Jenny in the afternoon for half an hour. We went to Puerto Esclava and caught up with our news there. Mistress shared a message from Kitty with me. At least we got another sign of life from her. Puddle Whore, formerly known as Kitty, is doing well, but her owner Amy and herself are kept from going inworld by their RL.

Sept 5th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava / Diomita with slave Flo and slave Melissa at home and at Mesmerize Dungeon

At night Mistress was not inworld. I had a quiet night. I first spent some time at Puerto Esclava and went home when slave Flo came online. She was cleaning the house, which was a total mess. I made her continue cleaning and helped her myself. Soon after, slave Melissa came inworld and I removed her armbinder, leashed her and she cleaned the rest of the house. We had a greedy and then went to Mesmerize Dungeon for the rest of the night. I teased slave Melissa and blindfolded her. Her collaring is getting closer.

Sunday afternoon, Mistress and I spent some time together in the afternoon. We caught up with our news, then Mistress allowed me to lick her to get my fix, as she was prevented from coming inworld at night. We went to Puerto Esclava and to Heavy Bondage Club aferwards and enjoyed being together and chatted until Mistress and I had to leave to care about our RL.

Sept 6th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home in our skybox, at Puerto Esclava and at Heavy Bondage Club

My night became varied. slave Flo was inworld and we had a greedy first. Then I took her to Psi’s realm. It was not bad visited that night, but nonetheless nothing was really going on. I decided to take slave Flo to a place that I wanted to see. I had met a domme, Quiet Bürner (QuietToday Burner) at Puerto Esclava a few days before, who invited me to her place, where she keeps her slaves. She’s looking for another overseer. Coincidentally she was present and she gave slave Flo and me a tour over her place.
After the tour I took slave FLo to the BDSM Lifstyle Swingers Club. It was full up to the limit of 20 avatars – what a crowd. Angelique had come home and I wanted to take her over to the Swinger Club as well, but nobody left and after a while I took slave Flo back home with me to meet Angelique. She was once again dressed in shiny latex and wearing quite some retraints. I couldn’t refrain from leashing her and took her and slave Flo to Mesmerize Dungeon for 15 minutes until flotime.

Sept 6th: Diomita and slave Flo at Psi’s realm, touring Quiet Bürner’s place, at BDSM Swinger Club and with Angelique at Mesemrize Dungeon

But my night wasn’t over yet. Angelique was in such a desperate mood, that I had to care about her. I took her to our loft skybox and began to tease her. Finally I took of her skirt, removed the pussy plug that she was wearing and began to lick her. Long story short – Angelique came twice and we both enjoyed it. It had been a while that I had such an intense time with her.

Simploring 2020 (62) Boulder

I had in mind to make a short simploring tour on Sunday, August 23rd. It turned out to become a longer and really great Sunday morning tour. I picked Boulder from scoop.it SL Destinations because the name of the owner caught my attention immediately.

Boulder – overview

Boulder is a moderate full region owned by Vally (Valium Lavender). I saw already several places of Vally. In 2020 I saw Valium Creek (read here) and Valium Sea (read here).
Boulder was (once again) designed by Dandy Warhlol (Terry Fotherington). Boulder is a beautiful photogenic coastal land inspired by the African Penguins of South Africa and intended to bring attention to this endangered species.

Impressions of Boulder (1) – at the landing point

At the landing poit I had a view to the town, named “Simon’s town” and had to decide where to go first. There’s a sign post with 3 directions: Art gallery, Simon’s town and Penguin Colony. I decided to walk to the penguins first. One of their colonies is at the beach not far from the landing point.

Impressions of Boulder (2) – a green oasis above Boulder

At the colony I saw another sign post “Follow the Stairs” and I began walking up the large rock. The higher I got the better was the view over Boulder. Finally I reached a beautiful place for a first break. At the end of the stairs you find several small huts offering beer and coffee admist a green oasis. The place can also be used for small parties.

Impressions of Boulder (3) – the open hole / the waterfalls

I continued my simploring tour walking through a passage in the rock that led to another beautiful spot with a waterfall and a bench to enjoy the view. At one end of this spot it a big sign “Danger – Open Hole”. In Second Life that’s more or less an order to take the risk and I stepped forward to see the hole. But I didn’t see it – instead the stone I was stepping on became instable and I fall down …. finding myself at the foot of a large waterfall. Luckily in Second Life you don’t get injured *winks*. From where I landed I could see the beach through another passage and was back at the penguin colony.

Impressions of Boulder (4) – Blurred views by Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni at Boulder Art Gallery

I went to the art gallery next. I don’t know if the exhibtion there is permanent or will change. At the time of my visit the gallery presented “Blurred Vibes” by Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni. I know them both as creators of great places in Second Life. Just recently I saw their sim “Summer in the City” (read here). The exhibtion is not very large but would have been worth a seperate blogpost. Fred and Lotus play with the artistic effect of blurring. Several texts accompany the pictures: “Blurring and focus are powerfl photographic deveices. Not arbitrary, because the theme chosen to focus on, regardless of the apparent irrelevance, makes the observer reflect on its meaning“. I strongly recommend not to miss this great small exhibit.
Remark: Lotus Mastroianni told me that the exhibtion will be available until End of September 2020 …. hence hurry up, if you want to see it.

Impressions of Boulder (5) – whale watching / the lighthosue languet

After my visit of the art gallery I went down to the beach again for another look at the penguins and at a whale which was just jumping out of the sea. And I was not alone watching this spectacle, as there was one of several NPC’s (static non-player characters) spread on the whole sim – a photographer.
From here I could see the lighthouse and I went there next. The lighthouse is at a languet right opposite of the penguin colonies. To get there you either have to walk along the beach and the town or you have to swim. Again I took advantage of the possibilities in Second Life and swam over there. The lighthouse and its surrounding is another beautiful spot at Boulder. I enjoyed another short break at the campfire close to the lighthouse. Several birds are around there and invite to just watch or take more pictures. Next to the lighthouse are a few huts. You can get fresh fish here.

Impressions of Boulder (6) – Simon’s town farmer market and sun beach

Acutally Boulder is two sims in one – one is the nature part with the beaches, the penguins, the waterfall and the languet with the lighthouse, the other part is Simon’s town. A special feature is that two different windlights are used for these parts. The windlight for the nature part is quite natural and couldy while the windlight used for Simon’s town is sunny with a clear deep blue sky. This windlight makes the town look a bit Mediterrean although the penguins live in South Africa. The town itself is really picturesque. I visisted the market and the sun beach on the backside of the town.

Impressions of Boulder (6) – Simon’s town waterfront promenade

The waterfront of Simon’s town offers many places to sit and is a perfect background for pictures. And of course there’s a lot to discover here. I really had fun looking at all the details and took many pictures.

Boulder is really a great sim and I fully enjoyed my Sunday morning immersing into another world. Vally intended to bring attention to the endangered penguis of South Africa, hence my last pictures shall reflect that. At the landing point are two pictures of these penguins and a reference to the “Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds”. You can read more about the foundation here.

Impressions of Boulder (7) – support the preservation of Southern Africa penguins

Thank you Vally for sharing your place publicly and thank you Dandy Warhlol (Terry Fotherington) for another great sim.

Diary 2020 (125) Sept 3rd / 4th Two shorter days

Thursday, Sept 3rd, I had a quite busy day in RL again. Mistress Jenny was also not able to come inworld during the day. I went on a simploring tour very late in the afternoon and could wind down a bit.
Mistress and I met in the evening. It became a quiet and short but nice night. We met Angelique and slave Flo at home. They were playing greedy. When they were done we went to the skipee table and played one round as teams. slave Flo and I won it due to the better cards. Angelique was dressed up hot again – wow. We went to Mesmerize Dungeon and to Lochme. That night we fully failed to liven up the silent crowd – and went home at flotime.

Sept 3rd: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique and slave Flo at Mesmerize Dungeon and at Lochme / Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Gravity’s party at Caged Elegance

Mistress Jenny and I went to Caged Elegance where Gravity (theriaeriker) had her Thursday night party for 20 minutes, then it was bedtime for us as well.

Friday, Mistress Jenny had no time during the day nor did I. We both were busy in RL. At night we had our regular party. Mistress and had spoken about the theme in advance: “Autumn is getting closer, the world is getting colourful. Wear something containing the colours of Autumn, red, yellow or brown tones – or come as your are of course.”
We had fun and started dancing and chatting into our weekend.

Sept 4th – Friday Night party: Della Randt, Hotaru Takeda, Starbright Wingtips, Kawaii Takeda, Claire (maddh4tt3r), Rachel Bloodrose, RANARISS, Virgo Babii (upper row), slave Flo, Lily NylonDumb (aureliesoumise), Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique, Claven Albatros, Baroness Capelo, Blueboyangel (lower row)

Simploring 2020 (61) Eterea

Scrolling through scoop.it SL Destinations for a new place to simplore several pictures of Eterea caught my attention and I picked it for my simploring tour on Saturday, August 22nd.

Eterea is a moderate homestead owned by five people: Coqueta Georgia, khronoz, Marissa (mariselaa), dietriech and SeKarou. It was designed by Coqueta Georgia. The sim description fits perfectly as I found out soon after I arrived: “A little magic piece of art in Second Life – photography, surrealistic, magic, art, friends“. Eterea is a sim for taking pictures, it has surrealistic and fantasy parts.

Eterea – overview and landing point

The landing is next to a roofed terrace where you could join the group for rezz rights. Stairs lead up to a big glass dome, that is really worth visiting. Besides offering seating to meet or cuddle there’re many of seemingly randomly collected items. You could spend a lot of time just by exploring all the little details and of course by taking pictures.

Impressions of Eterea (1) – the glass dome

The meeting dome is at the highest part of an island that is full of romatic places, huts, lougers and benches. The selected windlight dives the whole island into a romantic atmosphere. It’s not pure fantasy though, many place are simply beautiful and the decoration is placed thoughtfully. For myself I named the island “Romantic fantasy island”. Opposed to the island is a smaller island with just an old boat and a pond that is full of fishes – another great motif for pictures.

Impressions of Eterea (2) – romantic and beautiful spots

Impressions of Eterea (3) – at the beach and at the fish pond

But that is only one part of Eterea. The other part is a bit farer away and surreal. Following some power cable posts that lead into the nothing, you come across some statues and then you immerse into another world. Flying boats, ballons, umbrellas, swarms of birds and three stone stairs leading to doors, leading to paths in the sky, stairs built of stools – just surreal. You can walk on the paths and get new impressions ….

Impressions of Eterea (4) – a surreal world

You can sit on a chair becoming an angel (perfect for me as I’m all but an angel). I lost myself in this strange world and I’m pretty sure that I didn’t discover all. A great place for taking outstanding (art) pictures.

Impressions of Eterea (5) – a surreal world

I had fun exploring Eterea and taking pictures. The mixture of surrealistic art and a romantic fantasy island makes it an outstanding place to visit. I don’t get tired of seeing all the creativity in Second Life. Many thanks to Coqueta Georgia, khronoz, Marissa (mariselaa), dietriech, and SeKarou for sharing their place publicly, and many thanks also to Coqueta Georgia for designing it. I had an enjoyable time.

Addendum: I had a conversation with Coqueta Georgia after publishing my simploring report. Coqueta told me about the owners of Eterea and she also told me that Eterea has been listed in the SL Destination guide here. There you can find also this short video about Eterea.

Diary 2020 (124) Sept 1st/2nd Double Angelique – Double Flo

Tuesday, Sept 1st, Mistress and I caught up with our mutual news at our loft skybox. Mistress enjoyed her throne with me sitting at her feet while we talked. In the meanwhile Lucy (MissLucyWales) was at our home and cleaned the house and chatted with Mistress Jenny in private. When we were mutually filled in we went home to see Lucy. To my suprise she was dressed as a maid, good girl. I went in the house with her and checked her work. She had missed out one object to dust. Not to bad for the 2nd time she cleaned, so I could excuse it for this last time.

Sept 1st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at our loft skybox and at home with Lucy and Angelique

Lucy showed us more maid outfits and Mistress Jenny and I picked one as our favourite. Mistress made Lucy wear cuffs and ballet boots and I explained Mistress Jenny’s attitudes for slaves and subs regarding shoes to Lucy. Angelique joined us in front of the house and as Lucy had to leave soon later Mistress Jenny, Angelique and I played a round of greedy before we had to tend to our RL again.

When I came inworld at night, Angelique was close to the games area at a peice of art that I had rezzed there “Humanitree by Milly Sharple”. Angelique was dressed up tempting again. We talked about the art, then slave Flo joined us and we played a greedy first. Mistress Jenny came inworld and watched the last rolls. slave FLo was also intrigued by the Angelique’s outfit and asked to be allowed wearing it. I had in mind putting the slaves in their September outfit, but then I also didn’t want to spoil Flo’s fun and Angelique was willing to help slave Flo. Hence I granted it.

Sept 1st: Diomita at home with slave Flo and Angelique / Mistress Jenny and Diomita with Melissa at Mesmerize Dungeon

While Angelique retreated with salve Flo to get slave Flo dressed up like herself, Mistress Jenny and I went to Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Melissa. Angelique did a great job … and we had fun when the two joined us at Mesmerize Dungeon. And slave Flo was happy with her new dress – double slave Flo .. or double Angelique?

Sept 1st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Meissa and with double slave Flo or double Angelique respectively

Mistress Jenny and I went to Heavy Bondage Club and to Puerto Esclava after the slaves have left, but nothing really to report. We went off the bed soon after.

Wednesday afternoon I went to Puerto Esclava with Mistress to catch up. We both had a busy day and it was accordingly nice to wind down a bit. We went to Heavy Bondage Club later and met with Lucy (MissLucyWales) there. And then we retreated home and Mistress made me lick and worship her and allowed me to lick her – a feast. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.

Sept 2nd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava and at home in our skybox

We had a quiet night. I was inworld early and changed into a dress and the same hood that Angelique and slave Flo wore the night before and was just done when Mistress came inworld. We went down to see Angelique, who wore something different though. We started the night with a greedy together with Angelique and slave Flo, then we went on a tour through the clubs. We visited the BDSM Swingers Club first and Mistress asked me try out a bondage stool with slave Flo there. It has a lot of animation. Mistress and I will try it out together again before getting one for our place. There was not much going on at the BDSM Swingers Club, hence we moved on to Psi’s realm and later to Mesmerize Dungeon. It was strangely quiet everywhere, just at DeLust were 37(!) people, too laggy to go there.

Sept 2nd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with Angelique and slave Flo at home, at BDSM Swingers Club, at Psi’s realm and at Mesmerize Dungeon

Hence we returned home and ended the night like we began it – with a game of greedy. And that’s it about the first 2 days on September.

Simploring 2020 (60) Conall-Vika

For my simploring tour on Thursday, August 20th, I picked Conall-Vika from scoop.it SLDestinations. Conall-Vika is an adult homestead owned by Aurelia (Trin Adasia) and Mad (madflex). The name was derived from the celtic words for strong wolf “Conall” and for flowing water “Vika”.

The landing is on a little high plateau next to a big abandoned white villa, which I have seen in Second Life a few times. The court of this villa is this still used as it offers a nice place to sit and enjoy. What caught my eye immediately is the romantic atmosphere created by the selected windlight and by the selection of plants.

Impressions of Conall-Vika (1) – around the landing point

From the high plateau you can walk down a path if you take the way through the gates. The path contiunes and leads around the whole island. You will find really romantic places to sit and enjoy almost everywhere. I saw some sheep, deers and dogs. I saw sky lanterns and glowing particles that enhance the atmosphere of this lovely place.

Impressions of Conall-Vika (2)

At one end of the island is a café named Babba’s Café. Close to it I saw a statue from Mistero Hifeng. It seems that his art is quite popular and displayed in many sims (also in our own sim by the way). In the center of the island is a big modern residential villa, presumably used by the owners. I camed inside but didn’t go in, although there’s no “private” sign.

Impressions of Conall-Vika (3) – around Babba’s Café

Conall-Vika is a great place for taking pictures and it is a great place to retreat with your loved one. There’re really many nice spots to sit down and to cuddle, be it in tents, in little huts, under a stone arc or at the pier with the sailing boat. I had fun trying out some of these places but being alone on my simploring tour it was just half of the fun. But I enjoyed exploring.

There’s not much I can add. Conall-Vika is just a great sim to spend an hour or more as a couple. Or for a romantic background when you like taking pictures.

Diary 2020 (123) August 30th/31st Two quiet and relaxed days

Sunday, August 30th, I met with Mistress in the afternoon. It took quite a while to catch up with our mutual news and when we were done, Mistress spontaneously decided to get licked by me and to grant me my fix. Thank you Mistress.
We went to our house, where Lucy (MissLucyWales) had begun to clean. Angelique came by and we talked while I instructed Lucy where to clean. She did well and Mistress Jenny rewarded her by allowing her to lick her boots. In the meanwhile I selected an outfit for Angelique that showcased her plastic panties very well. Hence she was ready for the night.

Our night began with a greedy together with Angelique. She was not really happy to go out with the oufit that I had selected but I insisted that she kept it on. slave Flo and slave Melissa came inworld and after all foot kisses and sub hugs we went to Mesmerize Dungeon, where Lucy (MissLucyWales) joined us.

We had a relaxed night that I spend mostly chatting with Angelique in IM and a bit with slave Flo and slave Melissa. After a while we moved on to Psi’s realm where we had just a little bit of entertainment. And finally we returned home and had a greedy with Angelique and the slaves. Lucy watched kneeling next the Mistress.

It was a relaxed and quiet day, just what I needed.

Monday, August 31st, I met with Mistress in the afternoon again for about an hour. We had a relaxed time, caught up with our news, played 3 rounds of greedy and went to Puerto Escalva for half an hour. Nothing really to report, just that we had a quiet and good time.

Our night began unexpectedly for me. Mistress stripped and went to her queen seat just after we had said hello to each other. She made me wear cuffs and guided my head into her crotch and while I licked Mistress to please her and to get my fix she told me about the rest of her afternoon. What a start into that night!

We went seeing Angelique next. She was dressed up impressively, a real feast for the eyes. I could not hold back and cuffed her hands in front of her and leashed her. Then we took her to Mesmerize Dungeon to expose her. And not suprisingly we caught some attention. A sub, Jewel (Amora2901) joined us and Mistress allowed her to kneel next to her and Mistress leashed her as well. Jewel stayed with us the rest of that night.
We had Radomir (subRadomir) with us for 15 minutes and finally slave Melissa joined us as well. I chatted quite a lot with Angelique and a bit with slave Melissa – and Mistress with Jewel. After about an hour we returned home and had a game of greedy before Mistress and I retreated to our skybox and to bed.

Art in Second Life 2020 (55) little boxes by Etamae

The Hannington Endowment for The ARTS (HEA-Gallery) features a new art work of Etamae called little boxes. I have seen a lot of Etamae’s work since I came across her first in 2019 when I visited the Elevat Femdom Lounge & Spa (read here). This year I saw her art at La Maison d’Aneli (read here), I saw Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (read here), I visited her Extempore Gallery and Lounge (read here) and just lately I saw her pictures at the Plaza Art Gallery (read here). Of course I had also to see her newest work.

“little boxes” is not what I would have expected from Etamae. It is based on a song of Malvina Reynolds (August 23, 1900 – March 17, 1978), who was an American folk/blues singer-songwriter and political activist, best known for her songwriting, particularly the songs “Little Boxes” and “What Have They Done to the Rain.” (source wikipedia)
You can hear the song “Little Boxes” on youtube here.

The installation visualizes the song, the text is written on walls and when you click there you listen to the according stanza. The world of little boxes is colourful just as the little boxes in the song: pink, green, blue and yellow. Every part of the song has its visualisation at the installation. It is funny, almost a bit childish and full of irony. Everything is neat and perfect. That combined with the thoughts that Etamae gives us at the entrance makes “little boxes” a particular experience, something to think about:

As a clear opposition to conformity the “little boxes” song frowns uopn the idea of suburbia, talking about more than just the houses but also about the way a great many people lige their lifes.
Conform, own the ideal house, have the right amount of beautiful children, in.fact, embrace the middle class attitudes fully and strive to he just like your neighbours, but remember, the boxes might be different colour, but inside? Well, they are all just the same.
All around us are institutions that frown upon the creators, the free thinkers, all through the ages it has been easier to conform than not, we put ourselves in boxes as good as any respected system and although “little boxes” challenged convention and conformity of the era that it was composed in that does not mean that it has no established meaning today.

Etamae is from the UK and began transforming her pictures from the things she has seen and loved in Second Life into something else, in digital art in 2018. Etamae is not defined by just one style or area of art, she plays with different patterns and tries herself out in a broader spectrum of art. The current exhibtion at HEA-Gallery proves her attitude to try out different forms of art. She got help from friends to get the necessary building and scripting knowledge – and created something new. Thank you Etamae!

Don’t forget to grab a notecard with more information about the installation “little boxes” and about Etamae at the entrance of the exhibition. The exhibtion shall be open until October 15th, 2020.

HEA Gallery is owned by Hannington Xeltentat and was built by Tansee, who also runs the gallery. Thank you Hannington for providing the space and thank you Tansee from enabling the Etamae’s “little boxes“. I truely enjoyed – and it made me think.
