Simploring 2019 (25) The Obliviation Hole RLV Prison

On Sunday, February 17th, Starry (Starbright Wingtips) gave us (Jenny, Angelique and me) a tour through her fully remodelled prison: “The Obliviation Hole RLV Prison“. We had visited Starry’s Steampunk prison in 2018 already (read Simploring 2018 (38) Starry’s Steampunk Prison). But now it is bigger and more elaborated and sophisticated. On our tour we met PapaFox (papafox57) and Ćℓαire Arwen Alassé (maddh4tt3r), who both are wardens at the prison. We met Rose (lovelyrose387), a trustee prisoner, and Della (Della Randt) and a few others – and all of them are regular guests at our Friday night party. Hence a visit was overdue again, in particular as we talk about it during our parties very often.

The prison uses the latest in steam powered technology to operate outside of normal space and time. Your sentence in this prison will not pass at the same rate as time outside the prison. You may spend years here and find only days have passed outside, or you may spend days here and find that decades have passed at home. The time of your release depends upon your own behavior.

I kept the main chat and just revised it a little bit for easier reading. I added numbers, which refer to the pictures I selected. The pictures are snapshots and often show our backs – but they will give you an impression. With this kind of documentation you can literally walk through “The Obliviation Hole RLV Prison” like we did. The provided landmark leads to the big cavern under the prison, just where we landed when we visited. There will be another landmark and landing point soon. Please look up Starry (Starbright Wingtips)’s profile or contact her for the right landmark (once it is published).

Have fun – enjoy the tour!

REMARK: The provided landmark leads to the big cavern under the prison, just where we landed when we visited. There will be another landmark and landing point soon. Please look up Starry (Starbright Wingtips)’s profile or contact her for the right landmark (once it is published).

Simploring 2019 (24) DaphneArts – No man is an island

Thursday, February 21st, I visited the installation “No man is an island” at DaphneArts. “No man is an island” is created by Sheldon Bergman (sheldonbr) and Angelika Corral, who own DaphneArts, which opened in March 2016, and is an art complex that features monthly exhibitions, with a strong focus on the grotesque, surreal and existential themes.

Upon landing you’re requested to attach a HUD, that provides music and adds a black stripe on the top and the bottom of your screen and hence makes your visit look a bit like a film for the wide-screen. The stripes are also used to provide text.


DaphneArts presents – an experience by Sheldon Bergman and Angelika Corral – No Man Is An Island (1)

Together with the music and the windlight setting “No man is an island” has a scary and mysterious atmosphere. It a large beach with some rocks. Seagulls gather on the rocks. What catches the view is a tall light house and a burning hut next to it. Of course you’re attracted by it and walk closer to see the scene. The fire looks as if it has just started. The stairs to the entrance of the lighthouse are illuminated by candles, just like the bridge that you cross right when you land on the island.

In the landmark’s description the scene described: “The hermit dances in the fire, while the wind whistles a symphony. Raindrops patter on the sand. The candles burn. And, in the gloomy horizon, the lighthouse stands sublimely.


DaphneArts presents – an experience by Sheldon Bergman and Angelika Corral – No Man Is An Island (2)

Inside of the lighthouse is a human sculpture, illuminted by a spotlight – surrounded by the dark. The scuplture has a lower arm holding a candle in it’s mouth. When you enter the house you listen to Angelika Corral reading the poem “No man is an island“.

No man is and island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
Or of thine own were.

Any man’s death diminishes me,
Beause I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

(John Donne)

I further explored the island, that offers particular views for pictures with this unique atmosphere … while the words echoed in my ears “Where did you come from? Why are you here? Who are you?”


DaphneArts presents – an experience by Sheldon Bergman and Angelika Corral – No Man Is An Island (3)

I’ll refrain from interpreting the poem and the installation. It’s unique in its own way and you should visit and experience it yourself. Thank you Sheldon Bergman (sheldonbr) and Angelika Corral for creating this peice of art and for sharing.

Simploring 2019 (23) Avaloir – Eupalinos Ugajin

I came across Eupalinos Ugajin during my last visit to La Maison D’Aneli (read here). Saturday, February 16th, I visited Eupalinos’ sim – Avaloir.
Avaloir is french and translates to gully. Of course Avaloir is full of Eupalinos’ particular art. The landing is in a skybox which is itself worth seeing – zoom out to see it’s extraordinairy shape and the the planet with the outside with an attached paper. There’re also some interesting objects in the box. You’re asked to accept experiences – and I did. Then I used the very particular teleporter, that animates your avatar in a funny way. I got several destinations offered and selected “Catapult”.

Avaloir – the landing skybox

The catapult is on the ground level….
Catapulte: Click the water planet above to select a projectile and Jupiter to fire the catapult.” I did and selected “bishop by Haveit Neox” …and a bishop dropped down into the catapulte and then was ejected by it. Haveit Neox? The name rang a bell. I just came across other pieces of art from Haveit Neox, when I explored Undertones, Art Oluja (artistik Oluja) place and gallery the day before (read here Simploring 2019 (22) Undertones)

Avaloir – Catapulte (upper left) / at “The Plant”

I continued exploring using the teleporter and visited all desinations. Avaloir is an interactive installation of various smaller art installations. Each of them is unique, surreal and mostly also funny. For example when you enter “The Plant” your avatar is animated to wait ….
The Plant: Please switch off your AO and by the way are you wearing the safety equipment found at the entrance ?
Waiting room A: The manager is in a meeting. You have no choice but to wait 30 minutes (lucky for you converted in SL time this gives 30 seconds). Please enjoy some delicious background music composed by one of our employees in his spare time.

Avaloir – the concrete kite

Or the bathtube …. once I sat in it, I fall …. and then I saved (clicked) the floating images as instructed and each gave a comment:
Aston Leisen: Diomita Maurer wants me to LIVE!
Alpha Auer: Diomita Maurer wants me to LIVE!
AM Radio: Diomita Maurer wants me to LIVE!

Avaloir – Zirkus (upper left) / Star! (upper right) / Library (lower left) / Play me (lower right)

I tried “Anything” and got my avatar floating agravic among other objects. I visited the “Concrete Kite”, the “Egg” and “Star!”. I had fun not only because of Euplinos’ particular humor but also with the little activities and by looking at all the surreal objects. Some of the installations have also a touch of steampunk – like the “Zirkus Bar”

Avaloir – Chutes d’Ima (bathtube) (upper left and right) / Anything (lower left) / Zirkus Bar (lower right)

Avaloir is a unique experience and hard to describe, particular for a non-native English speaker like me. But that results in what might be the best to do – see Avaloir yourself. My pictures should give you an impression of what to expect and should be a teaser. Enjoy!
Thank you Eupalinos Ugajin for creating and keeping alive your sim. I like your art and your humor. And a visit is for sure an experience you don’t make daily in Second Life.

Simploring 2019 (22) Undertones

Friday, February 15th, I picked “Undertones” from scoop.it SL Destinations. The short article and the short landmark description of Undertones did tempt me:
Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect – a public gallery, garden, music, videos, artwork, and little shops to explore, snap, and hangout. Welcome all friendlies!
On the docks: T3T Rez zone, gacha yardsale and random freebies 🙂
In addition, I hadn’t heard or read before about the artist, who owns “Undertones”: Art Oluja (artistik Oluja)

Undertones – overview and entering the gallery

At the landing point you can grab some freebies and a landmark at a raft, that is close to the landing point (one freebie is the raft itself). Getting up the stairs you enter a labyrinth of connected modern buildings with a lot of space for the art. In the first hallway one wall is full of posters of galleries. Seems, as if I will never be able to discover and see all of them.

Impressions of Undertones – the art of Art Oluja (artistik Oluja)

Apropos missing – I looked up Art Oluja’s profile to find out about her art. She says about herself: “Addicted to mental stimulation, synesthetic appreciation, and art in all its forms. I admire creative processes, online and off, inside and out. Im an explorer and admirer of all the many creative experiences here, but sometimes I zone out enough to experiment myself :)”
I learned that Art Oluja had participated in the LEA program, having own installations and collaborated with other artists. I didn’t see any of it though.

Impressions of Undertones – featuring the art of Silas Merlin, Pearl Grey (pearlgrey) and Elle Thorkveld

At Undertones Art Oluja has exhibited her art as well as art from other artists. I came across Pearl Grey (pearlgrey), Klaus Bereznyak, Silas Merlin, Mistero Hifeng, Elle Thorkveld and Haveit Neox. I’m pretty sure, there’re more.

Impressions of Undertones – featuring the art of Mistero Hifeng, Silas Merlin, Klaus Bereznyak and Haveit Neox / Diomita posing at Undertones

I visited the garden, the event area, the shops and some nice spots to sit and enjoy. I had fun looking at all the art, there’s so much to discover that my one hour visit was by far not suffient. I grabbed some of the freebies, some of Art Oluja own work is given away for free as well, some are sold – and yes, I got one piece for my own collection of art.

Impressions of Undertones – featuring the art of Pearl Grey (pearlgrey) and Klaus Bereznyak / Diomita trying out the freebies (lower left and middle) and placing the art of Art Oluja (artistik Oluja) at home (lower right)

And at home, I had a look at the freebies – funny!
I enjoyed my visit to Undertones and seeing Art Oluja’s work as well as the work of other artists arranged thoughtfully and I had fun looking around. Thank you Art Oluja for sharing your place, for the freebies and for a very enjoyable visit.

Simploring 2019 (21) L’Azile

Annie Oh (anniebrightstar), who runs the scoop.it SL Destinations, gave me a notecard with landmarks for a place named L’Azile. She said the sim might be a destination for one of my simploring tours. The notecard contained some descriptions for the provided landmarks. On Sunday, February 10th, I went to L’Azile

L’Azile – overview

L’Azile is an adult place taking about one half of a full sim. It is owned by Boro Moretto (boromir22). As far as I understood also Boro’s partner Loony Moretto (Louna Perl) is involved as well as Zoé (zoeliah) as gardener and builder. Upon landing you get a description in English and one in French and a notcard explaining the background of L’Azile and it’s adult D/s background. I used excerpts of these notecards and from the landmark descriptions, that I got from Annie for my simploring report.

Impressions of L’Azile (1) – around the lnding pint (lower left is a statue of Mistero Hifeng)

L’Azile was created as a space to relax in a welcoming setting, reminding of a beach holiday. It also has a private residential area and you’re kindly asked to respect the privacy. L’Azile is first of all a friendly place with a little taste of craziness. The inhabitants are called Zinzins, that means nicely crazy, in French. Founded by French people, L’Azile is not strictly a franco sim although many zinzins speak French. A lot, but not all of them, speak (also) English.

Impressions of L’Azile (2) – the bar

Boromir, Loony and Zoe are French. They ran a D/s sim on SL or quite a long time, that they closed when they got the feeling it wasn’t fitting their expectations anymore. Yet L’Azile is more than a D/s sim. First of all it is intended to be a little crazy tourism resort. It radiates the spirit of a summer vacation resort with some funny and crazy places. In terms of D/s there is a D/s manor, a kinky church and a few seats dispersed in the sim. And there’s art not only in L’Azile‘s own art Gallery.

Impressions of L’Azile (3) – the gallery, currently showing the art of Sofi (Bachi Cheng).

The landing place itself offers already places to sit and funny things to look at. Close ot the landing place is a beach with more opportunities to sit at a campfire or to mediate while floating in one of the inflatable swimming objects. What caught my eyes was a statue from Mistero Hifeng (not the only piece of him that you could find here) and the female legs that peek out of the bay. Next to the bay is the bar. The interior of this bar mirrors the intention of L’Azile, it’s a bit crazy and funny and did conjure a smile in my face.

Impressions of L’Azile (4) – the art collection

Of course I visited the gallery. Currently there’s an exhibtion showing pictures of the RL art of Sofi (Bachi Cheng). If you’re interested in art within SL don’t miss also seeing the art collection, a house with art from several artists, pieces that were collected by the owners of L’Azile. I enjoyed it!

Impressions of L’Azile (5) – the D/s Manor

No surprise that I had a closer look at the D/s manor. It has 3 very stylish rooms for BDSM, a perfect place to go to get some variety. I really like it. What I liked even more was the church which is perfect for weddings and collarings. I will spread the word and might use it for upcoming events within our family & friends group.

Impressions of L’Azile (6) – the kinky church

There’s really so much to see in L’Azile! I didn’t mention yet the outdoor cinema, the motel, the bath house, the romantic place to cuddle close to the gallery and the wildlife where you can get close to hippos and other animals. Not to mention all the lovely spots to sit and enjoy. I spent almost 2 hours and just got a first impression. Alone the art that is spread around the sim is worth another visit and I didn’t see all of it for sure. I also discovered another gallery close by, Gallery Pinot Gris, that I might want to explore soon.

Impressions of L’Azile (7) – the bathouse, the motel, the camping and the wildlife

Enough words, L’Azile is another place that fits into my Second Life with a beautiful environment, lots of art, obviously home for a tolerant and open minded community and a kinky D/s corner. Thank you Boro Moretto (boromir22) for providing this place to us all!

Simploring 2019 (20) Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story

I picked “Delicatessen – Tell Me a story” from scoop.it SL Destinations for another simploring tour related to art in Second Life. It is a homestead owned and created by Meilo Minotaur. And I learned that Delicatessen is already open for more than 8 years with different installation, this one is “Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story

Upon landing your stand in front of 10 boxes, each contains a free artful fantasy avatar. There’re birds, animals, a boy and several girls to choose from. I selected a skinny girl with an Asian touch. Also upon landing you get at notecard with the background and the thoughts from Meilo Minotaur:

“Whoever tells a tale, adds a point,” it is said in Portugal. In english we could say: whoever tells a tale adds a tail. “Tell me a story” is an installation that calls for the participation of the visitors. Contrary to what is usual, in which the image helps to illustrate the story, I ask you to tell me a story that links the various scenes of the installation.
The characters of the island have their correspondence in avatars. They do not have names, you can give any name you think fit them. It will not be necessary to use all the characters or scenes, you will use those that you understand.
The stories will be told as you please: only with text, text and image, video or whatever you want. If you want you can give them an ending or leave them in suspense. If necessary I will add a final scene to the installation. I can choose only one story or several, this part is still open. I still do not know yet how they will be presented, depending on what you do.
I’m waiting for you.
Thank you
meilo.minotaur@gmail.com

That sounds interesting and it is! Delicatessen is mostly held in shades of grey. At one side is a huge mountain and skycrapers are built in a way that they almost snuggle into the mountain. Opposed to the mountain is a large swamp with many trees and their crowns build a platform. On the platform a several small huts, inhabited by birds. And as birds can fly, there’s no stair up there.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (1)

I encountered several fantasy beings and most of them correspond to the fantasy avatars you can pick upon landing. That’s very obvious when you get to a group of three humanoid avatars with 2 girls and the boy, the fourth small girl in this picture is me *winks*.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (2)

The seperate scenes seem not to connect at all. A huge grasshopper reading a book to a girl, 2 bird avatars with antlers dancing on the tree platform, a group of animal avatars standing under the hut of a mushroom together with a girl (for some reason that scene reminded me of the three holy kings) or a huge swan holding a birdcage in its bead with two dancing beings.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (3)

I encountered a few scary stork like creatures standing in groups. Depending on your viewing angle their heads look like skulls, and depending on your viewing angle you see their dense feathering – or not. Another scene looks like a procession for a high priest.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (4)

The whole scenery with all it’s fog makes Delicatessen looking cold and unreal, which is for sure intended. The 10 characters themself do look not scary, some of them even happy and carefree. The scenery is like walking through a strange dream. Can I tell Meilo a story? Anything combining the seperate scenes? No, I can’t. But I enjoyed exploring and looking at the single scences and searching to come up with something.

For sure “Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story” is worth a visit and it’s very intriguing. Thank you Meilo for creating and let’s hope that you get many inspiring stories.

Simploring 2019 (19) Windhaven

For my simploring tour on Wednesday, February 6th, I picked Windhaven from scoop.it SL Destinations, an adult homestead. The landmark description consists mostly of tags:
forest, camp, beach, flickr, photography, vlogger, blogger, poses, photo, harbor, ciy, bar, vintage, river, rain, hills, ruin, music, photogenic, roleplay and bdsm friendly“.
As far as I could find out Windhaven is owned by Lennox Johnson (xxlennox) and Manuel Crumb. The landing is close to the court of a small town located directly at the shore.

Windhaven – overview

Upon landing you’ll get a notecard with some simple rules, for example you shouldn’t run around naked outside although Windhaven is an adult sim. In Lennox’ profile I found a short text about Windhaven:
Windhaven is a peaceful Lakeside Town with a lovely countryside. Visitors are welcome to explore the many photogenic spots,just take in the ambience or enjoy your own roleplay. Windhaven is also BDSM friendly. Take a flight and enjoy your stay!

Impressions of Windhaven (1) – Landing point and bar

I began my tour at the court and visited the bar, just close to the landing. It offers places to sit and a billard table, a really cosy place. The court itself and the row of town houses impressed me by the love for the detail with which it is created, a really picturesque spot. There’s a boutique, a tailor, a cafe and an apothecary, all of them furnitured and the shop-windows look really great.

Impressions of Windhaven (2) – The town

I continued my tour visiting the camping and vacation village, a nice spot offering a lot of opportunities to sit. You can go fishing or sit at a campfire and enjoy the nature.

Impressions of Windhaven (3) – Camping and vacation village

From there it is not far to the ruins. It is raining there. Thank god you don’t need an umbrella in Second Life. If you enter the ruins and walk around it you’ll find many places to sit and enjoy on the backside. I continued walking into the forest and there’s a lot of it in Windhaven. But it was worth going further as I got a great view on the lighthouse from here.

Impressions of Windhaven (4) – The ruins in the rain / the forest

Windhaven is varied and provides a bit of everything .. what’s missing? – a beach. It is called Sunbeach and located close to the lighthouse. There’s also an abandoned house, yet there’s not much to see inside (or I didn’t notice it), it’s just messy as it would look after being left for years.

Impressions of Windhaven (5) – Sunbeach (upper pictures) / the Mansion (lower pictures)

The most outstanding house in Windhaven is a big mansion between the town and the beach. In front of it are 2 statues from Mistero Hifeng, a renowned artist in Second Life. At the entrance of the mansion is a sign “This is not a brothel. There are no prostitutes at the adress”. The sign for me was the clear hint that I entered the adult part of Windhaven. The mansion just has 3 rooms:
– a central large hall will a swimming pool, areas to sit and to have an event, a piano and stylish decorations.
– a library which looked very cosy to me (I didn’t try but I assume there’re some adult poses hidden in there
– a stylish bdsm playroom resembling more to a night club than to a dungeon.

Impressions of Windhaven (6) – inside the mansion / ending my tour on the roof of a townhouse (lower right)

My tour ended at the town again. I went on the roof of one town house and enjoyed looking over the court.
Windhaven is first of all a sim offering a lot of great views and backgrounds. I was impressed by it’s variety. I personally liked the little town most, but for me with my (not secret kinks) also the mansion was a highlight of my visit, that I really enjoyed. Thank you Lennox Johnson (xxlennox) and Manuel Crumb for sharing your place with the public!
