Art in Second Life 2021 (98) Thunderous Train Of Air by London Junkers

London Junkers invited me to experience his newest installation named “Thunderous Train of Air“. The installation is set up at Kuidvis Art Space, a project that unites art in rl and sl and that offers the artists a chance to show their creativity. Kuidvis Art Space is founded and curated by lylaya.

To best view this installation set your viewer to Shared Environment and turn advance lighting model on. To understand the piece it is (more than) highly recommended the click the book right at where you land or at the center of the round floor to receive a poem, which inspired this installation. To read it, just add the object you will receive.

The poem is written by London Junkers, as far as I understood it. And he wrote it for Ruth Stone, an American poet, author, and teacher (1915-2011).

In the wikipedia entry for Ruth Stone the American journalist and author Elizabeth Gilbert tells a story about Stone’s writing style and inspiration, which she had shared with Gilbert:

As [Stone] was growing up in rural Virginia, she would be out, working in the fields and she would feel and hear a poem coming at her from over the landscape. It was like a thunderous train of air and it would come barrelling down at her over the landscape. And when she felt it coming . . . ’cause it would shake the earth under her feet, she knew she had only one thing to do at that point. That was to, in her words, “run like hell” to the house as she would be chased by this poem.
The whole deal was that she had to get to a piece of paper fast enough so that when it thundered through her, she could collect it and grab it on the page. Other times she wouldn’t be fast enough, so she would be running and running, and she wouldn’t get to the house, and the poem would barrel through her and she would miss it, and it would “continue on across the landscape looking for another poet.”
And then there were these times, there were moments where she would almost miss it. She is running to the house and is looking for the paper and the poem passes through her. She grabs a pencil just as it’s going through her and she would reach out with her other hand and she would catch it. She would catch the poem by its tail and she would pull it backwards into her body as she was transcribing on the page. In those instances, the poem would come up on the page perfect and intact, but backwards, from the last word to the first.

London Junkers took this story and made a poem of it, a poem for Ruth Stone. And he not only wrote the poem, he also visualized it in Second Life. His installation has all elements mentioned in the story and the poem: The running girl, the thunderstorm, the whirlwind, the sun, the winged stars, the fields of wheat, the paper and the pen to write down the poem, the sun and light that breaks through the clouds, the dark air. And yes your can almost feel the “Thunderous Train of Air“.

London Junkers is in Second Life for more than 13 years. He runs a store for Gothic clothes “Lnlsquare” in Second Life and, he writes and he visualizes (his) short stories and poems in 3D.

Diary 2021 (130) September 27th/28th The catsuit bug

Monday, September 27th, I met with Jenny in the afternoon. We first caught properly up with our mutual. Jenny had been inworld during her family absence, but we hadn’t had time to really talk. We also talked about my collar. For several weeks I was wearing my patnering collar and Jenny asked me if I desire to keep it on. Of course I wanted, but I also was aware that it was time to get back into my position. Mistress Jenny decided for me and exchanged the partnering collar with my sub collar.
We went to club Domme a Domme next and stayed there for a while chatting amoung us and watching what was going on there. Then we visited slave Faye at Psi’s realm, where we had left her the night before. slave Lily (Lily Bloodrose) was also at Psi’s realm and it didn’t take long that she joined us and slave Faye on the chain. We teased the two and I took a few nice pictures.

September 27th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home, at club Domme a Domme and at Psi’s realm with slave Lily and slave Faye

Before we left to tend to our RL Mistress retreated with me to our skybox. She made me lick her and I got my fix. That had the intended effect and re-ignited my submission for her as I am addicted to her amd her juices. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.

At night we first played a greedy with Angelique. After slave Holly and slave Alessi had come inworld Mistress Jenny and Angelique played a team skipee against slave Holly and me. It became a quite one sided game as Holly and I had too good cards that night.

We went to Carnal Intentions after the game. On my way to the club I picked up slave Faye at Psi’s realm. And at Carnal Intentions slave Elena (Elenaslv Serenity) joined us. Again we were quite a large group. When the Maurer’s enter a club it is quite full *winks*.
I experienced a bug with slave Faye’s catsuit since she was wearing it. Somtimes I see it, other times she naked. Usually after a relog or after a teleport I see it again. slave Holly made a picture of us and in it slave Faye was naked…
Diomita Maurer: “tonight you have the Faye-catsuit-bug”
Diomita Maurer giggles
Maurer’s sIave Holly (honoursgirl) giggles “oh she isn’t meant to be naked”
Diomita Maurer: “I call it the Faye-catsuit-bug”
Maurer’s sIave Holly (honoursgirl): “I have the same naked bug all the time Mistress Diomita”
Diomita Maurer laughs out loudly RL!!!!
What a priceless and dry British humor! slave Holly made my night.

September 27th: Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with slave Faye, slave Holly, slave Alessi and slave Elena / pictures on the right by slave Holly (Faye with and without catsuit)

We spent the whole night at Carnal Intentions, chatting amoung us and following what was going on at the club. It was a nice and relaxed night.

Tuesday, September 28th, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon and we spent our afternoon time together at club Domme a Domme. We had slave Zephany with us for some time, but Zeph kept on crashing, hence it didn’t make much sense. Finally I rezzed a human chair and Zeph could serve as Mistress Jenny’s chair. slave Faye also came inworld, shortly before Mistress and I had to leave and I summoned her to us. Mistress Jenny’s particular toy also joined us at club Domme a Domme as a light green fiction beeing – funny. Time went by way too quickly as always.

September 28th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave Zephaney and slave Faye at club Domme a Domme

Tuesday night I met with pet at home first. She confessed having violated a rule and we did talk about it as well as about her desires and feelings. Of course I also had to punish the violation, but I kept it with just a nice spanking (pet might have even enjoyed that).
Flo and Angelique came inworld later and as Mistress Jenny wasn’t inworld yet we played two rounds of greedy, pet and Faye, who came inworld as well, watched the game.
We went to Carnal Intentions again and filled the club. Elena (Elenaslv Serenity) was at Carnal Intentions too, slave Holly came inworld. Soon I really had my hands full (!). And Faye’s catsuit bug was also working again (not showing in my viewer)*winks*.

September 28th: Diomita at home and at Carnal Intentions with Angelique, Flo, pet, slave Holly, slave Elena and slave Faye

Later at night Mistress Jenny joined us. I decided to change Faye’s outfit. She got the NGW Venus corset and is now fully encased in latex – and this time I saw her catsuit. We would see if that it stays showing in my viewer now.

We had a chatty full family night.

Diary 2021 (129) September 25th/26th Spontaneous bondage night at Psi’s realm

Saturday, September 25th, I went visiting an art installation in the later morning. slave Holly came inworld and I returned home after I had finished my visit. I caught up with her, teased her a bit and had fun making her horny. Then I had to leave to tend to my RL.

September 25th: Diomita and slave Holly at home

I returned inworld in the afternoon and this time pet (Newlifeloading) and slave Holly were inworld. I spend tie with them at club Domme a Domme and at Psi’s realm. At club Domme a Domme we even had some main chat (rare!).

September 25th: Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at Psi’s realm with slave Holly and pet / Diomita at home, with Angelique, slave Faye and slave Holly

I logged off to take advantage of the nice weather in RL and returned before dinner for half an hour. I met Angelique, Faye and slave Holly …

My night began quiet. I went to Puerto Esclava and summoned pet to me when she came inworld. I had time to tease her and there wa also some main chat going on. I summoned slave Holly to me as well, when she came inworld. Both slaves did decorate me well. When Flo amd Angelique came inworld, I returned home with the slaves. I had to pee anyway. So I first used my toiled (slave Holly). Our pet made a nice darkened picture of me using slave Holly.
slave Alessi was in the house, she had cleaned, good slave girl. We gathered all at the games table where Flo was playing. Then we all went to Carnal Intentions for the rest of the night.

September 25th: Diomita at Puerto Esclava and at home with slave Holly and pet / Diomita and Angelique with Flo, slave Holly, slave Alessi and pet at Carnal Intentions

I had a quite chatty night talking with everyone. Later Jenny and Faye joined us for a while. I was an all family day.

September 25th: Jenny, Diomita and Angelique at Carnal Intentions with slave Faye, slave Holly, slave Alessi and pet

Sunday, September 26th, I went simploring after lunch. I visited a lovely Autumn sim. Just the right thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. When I had finished my visit I went to Puerto Esclava and summoned pet to me. We talked for a while until pet had to leave to her RL – and I tended to my RL again as well.

September 26th: Diomita at Puerto Esclava with pet / Diomita at Pis’s realm with slave Faye, slave Holly and slave pet

At night I ran late. slave Holly came inworld just seconds after me. She’s still staying at our skybox and we caught up with her news there. I had to pee, so I quickly used my toilet (slave Holly) before we went down to meet with pet and slave Faye. I decided to take the three slaves to Psi’s realm and then to tie them up a bit – spontaneously. And while I was busy with the locks and chains, Jenny came inworld and joined us at Psi’s realm. Jenny and I caught up with our news quickly, we had fun teasing the slaves for a bit and taking a few pictures. But all were tired that Sunday night, hence we returned home qutie early and called it a night.

Art in Second Life 2021 (96) My Reflection by Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre

Monday, September 27th, a new exhibition was opened at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery featuring the art of Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre (Hikaru Enimo). The exhibtion is named “My Reflection” and consists of 13 pictures.

The exhibition ‘My Reflection‘ is in Hikaru’s own words the habit of deliberately paying attention to once own thoughts, emotions, decisions, and behaviors. Periodically it reflected back on an event and how it was handled, in hopes that to learn something from it and make better decisions in the future.” (taken from the accompanying notecard)

Hikaru’s pictures are taken in Second Life and processed to highlight effects and details. In all of the a male avatar is in the center. A few are explicitly erotic, which is rare for male avatars in Second Life. Hikaru obviously like his dog as it appears in several of the pictures. Nonetheless all pictures are very different, none seem to be part of a series. And as always, the mirroring effect of the floor adds a lot to the presentation of the art.

Impressions of “My Reflection” by Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre (1)

I’ve been quite some time in Second life and I report about art and galleries also for quite some time. But I admit I had never heard about Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre before.
Hikaru is almost 11 years in Second Life, he is a model, a photographer, a stylist, a manager, a blogger and more. He’s really very active in Second Life – obviously just living and working in another part of Second Life than me. The list of his activies is long:
L’Homme Magazine SL. Owner & Editor-in-Chief
Neo-Japan SL Event Co-Founder & Blogger Manager
GABRIEL Blogger/Event/Store Manager
ReaEvil Blogger Manager
FinerThreads Blogger Manager
Since1975 Blogger Manager
KARTEL Store Manager
E-Clipse Design Social-Media/Blogger Manager
VARONIS Social-Media Manager
Damage Society Blogger Manager

Chapeau! And his artwork is quite intriguing.
Learn and see more of Hikaru Enimo on his flickr page and on his blog.

Nitroglobus Roof Gallery is owned and curated by Dido Haas. For the exhibtion “My Reflection” by Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre, Dido has added two ghosts who fly in circles within the exhibtion space. It is Dido’s personal tribute to the upcoing Halloween season.
Thank you, Dido for providing the space for the art and for enabling the exhibition “My Reflection” by Hikaru Enimo-Lefevre. Once again I had the opportunity to see an artist, who I never came across before!

My Reflection” shall be open throughout most of October.

Diary 2021 (128) September 23rd/24th Let your inner tiger out

Thursday, September 23rd, I was inworld after lunch and roamed aroud for half an hour. slave Faye, who I had selft at Psi’s realm, came inworld and I went visiting her. I uploaded the 2nd part of Marine’s film to her RemVision and went off again to tend to my RL.
In the later afternoon I met with Jenny at Puerto Esclava. We spent an hour together there and caught up with our mutual news, chatted about other guests, just enjoyed ourselves. Faye showed up again, she had finished watching part 2. Jenny and I went seeing her before I had to log out.

September 23rd: Diomita at Psi’s realm with slave Faye / Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava

When I returned at night, Flo and Angelique were present. They had went shopping together and looked great. Flo had a new white outfit with a body, Angelique was wearing a black catsuit. Well, done! I asked Flo to add her vixen cuffs and I changed them into a plastic look. pet (Newlifeloading) joined us. We had just began a skipee when Jenny came inworld and soon after also slave Holly came online. We, Jenny, Angelique, Flo, slave Holly and I played a skipee. I used the time playing to catch up with Jenny and the others.

September 23rd: Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita at Psi’s realm with Flo, slave Holly and pet

After our game we went to Psi’s realm. I expected slave Faye to show up. I could sense that Jenny was in a quite dominant mood. After Flo and pet had left for bed, we went to Carnal Intentions.

September 23rd: Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita at Psi’s realm and at Carnal Intentions with Flo, slave Holly and pet

Jenny was up to provide her fix to me and she had plans with slave Holly. We returned home and said good night to Angelique. Right at this moment slave Faye came inworld. I returned to Psi’s realm and uploaded part 3 for her, then I joined Jenny and slave Holly at our skybox. Although I was still wearing my partnering collar, Jenny had clear ideas what she wanted. She ordered me to strip and made slave Holly lick me, first at the uneven bars, then in her cage…phewwww. But not enough, slave Holly stayed in her cage and I had to lick Mistress Jenny and got my fix. slave Holly could watch my submission to my Mistress wife and how she ensures that I know my place. I assumed that my time wearing the partnering collar will come to an end soon.

September 23rd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at our skybox with slave Holly

I had a varied Friday, September 24th. I went visiting two galleries in the later morning and wrote my blog entries about them. I roamed around, had a short roleplay at home with a guest at our homesim, not much, jut a bit of teasing. But it was fun. Angelique was there too and we got to talk a little bit.
I also prepared my outfit for our Friday night party. Jenny had made a proposal, she’s quite creative *winks*.
“Another week is over and that means – Friday! Let’s celebrate the upcoming weekend. We are hoping to have a purrfect night so either wear your ears and tails or let your inner tiger out for the night or wear your finest catsuit or…. come as you are. DJ Virgo is spinning the tunes.”

September 24th – Friday night party: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Dely Ebony (krysbia), Angelique, Flo, slave Holly, pet (Newlifeloading), Ebony Massey, slave Faye (upper row), Jayson Dakota, Starbright Wingtips, Sara (SaraRandall), Della Randt, Firefly Dakota, Claven Albatros, Laura (Laura00175), Dana van Adams-Ghost (Dana Darkwatch), Baroness Capelo, Virgo Babii (lower row

)

I met with Angelique, Flo, pet and slave Holly at night and we played a greedy together until our party began. We had fun dancing and chatting again of course. Faye showed up too and I picked her up up from Psi’s realm. And Jenny came inworld and joined us for half an hour. She had left for a family weekend that Friday.
Another great Firday night!

Artin Second Life 2021 (95) JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea Hotel

During my last visit to La Maison d’Aneli seeing the second part of the Summer 21 exhibtion (read here), I came across the artist JudiLynn India. Judy has her own JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea Hotel. I visited it on Wednesday, September 22nd.

JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea (1) – outside, 1st floor, stamp collection

The JudiLynn Gallery extends over three stories basement, 1st and 2nd floor. On the 1st floor, Judi presents a stamp collection she has created in 2019 in oil pastel, ink and digital textures. These are colourful abstract paintings, that shine at some spots and leave room to see in them different things depending on your mood.
Also on the 1st floor is a series of 6 paintings in black and white from 2019, abstract, a bit reminding of the structure of marble. The series is called “unique”, expressing that ach of them is unique and has a pattern you’d find nowhere else. Finally right by the stairs leading to the basement are two paintings from 2018, both made of several layers. On a frist glance they look just abstract, on a second glance you notice more and more the other layers and being to see different things.

JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea (2) – unique series, 2nd floor

The 2nd floor is dedicated to JudiLynns art from 2012. Even more colourful abstract paintings showing different, irregular patterns. These paintings convince with their colourfulness, some did remind me of eruptions of paint. For sure any of these could decorate and dominate a living room.

JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea (3) – colourful paintings of 2012

The basement is reserved for JudiLynn’s newer artwork. Some of it was shown at La Maison d’Aneli (read here). Judi categorized them into harmony, equilibrium, balance and symmetry. Again her style is recognizable immediately by the use of colour and abstract patterns, partly mirrored vertically or horizontally. But behind or through the abstract paintings the spectator can recognize something else, be it a face, a person, a building or whatever.

JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea (4), basement with Judi’s more recent artwork

Judi Lynn studied art throughout school, Commercial Art in high school and Graphic Design at Tyler School of Art/Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. After the turn of the century, she decided to focus her creativity on acrylic and digital painting. Known in Second Life since 2009 as JudiLynn India and RL as Judi Lynn, her mission is to share her vision and message as an artist with the global community: “My work embodies my spirit and personality. My goal is to allow you to experience the image with your own mind’s eye. My work is entirely intuitive. I get lost in the layering of texture and color. Occasionally, I will include figurative work if my spirit is so presented with the composition. Just as there is order in the chaos of the universe, the energy within me is brought into focus one canvas at a time.” (taken from a text by JudiLynn India)

Besides the JudiLynn Gallery, Judi has a website for purchase of prints: www.judilynnart.com
You can also find a list of her current exhibition in own and other galleries in her profile in Second Life.

Diary 2021 (127) September 21st/22nd Side at side with Jenny

Tuesday, Sepetmber 21st, I spent an hour inworld in the morning at club Domme a Domme. I had a nice chat and enjoyed. I returned in the afternoon and went to Puerto Esclava where Jenny joined me. We stayed there for more than an hour, caught up with our mutual news, had a few chats and we might have found some trouble for the two of us. I doubt it though, but if you don’t try and risk something, then you can’t find it for sure.

After Jenny had left to tend to her RL, I stayed inworld for a bit to change. And just when I wanted to log off, slave Faye and pet (Newlifeloading) came inworld. I returned home and bought another RemVision on my way home. It took a while to set it up, but when I left for dinner, slave Faye was watching her first slideshow.

September 21st: Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava / Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with Flo, Elena and pet

My night began relaxed. Flo, Angelique and pet were present and I began a skipee with Angelique and Flo. Angelique had a power loss and left all of a sudden, but Jenny came inworld and could take her place. Angelique must have rigged it well as Jenny won easily. We went to Carnal Intentions where Elena (Elenaslv Serenity) joined us.

I had a quite busy night, trying to modify Flo’s cuffs and trying to talk with everyone. Angelique returned inworld and joined us as well as slave Faye.

September 21st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with Angelique, Flo, Elena, slave pet and slave Faye

Flo left, slave Holly came inworld and joined us. Carnal Intentions was quite empty that night, but our group filled it easily. I talked with slave pet about her wardrobe, caught up with slave Holly and talked a bit with Angelique. And we also used main chat. Faye watched the slideshow and was done with it when we left the club shortly before midnight. We had a real family night.

September 21st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with Angelique, Elena, slave Holly, slave pet and slave Faye

Wednesday, Sept 22nd, was a quiet day in Second Life for me. Mistress was offline during the day and I went visiting a gallery in the later morning. i also logged in several times and roamed a bit. I had a few chats. pet (Newlifeloading) was present quite a lot but had her assignment to work on her wardrobe. She made nice progresses.

September 22nd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm with Angelique, slave Holly, slave Faye and pet

At night we had another family day – no skipee this time. We gathered at the house: Jenny, Angelique, pet, slave Faye and I. We decided to go to Psi’s realm where slave Holly joined us soon after we arrived. I tied up Faye suspended and gave her the first part of Marine’s film to watch. Pet had to leave early. And when slave Faye left to tend to her RL I didn’t release her, she will stay at Psi’s realm for a bit.

September 22nd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm and at Carnal Intentions with Angelique, slave Holly, slave Faye and pet

Before we went off to bed, we – Jenny, Angelique, slave Holly and I, went to Carnal Intentions for a bit. We really had some main chat there, that’s rare! And that’s it about a quiet but nice day time in Second Life.

Art in Second Life 2021 (94) Narcotic Concept

I got an invitation from Sophie de Saint Phalle (perpetua1010) to see her newest exhibition. She gave me a poster of Narcotic Concept (or NarcotiConcept), an invitation to an opening event on September 12th featuring the art of Akim Alonzo, Luca Pierro, Maciek Jasik, Omar Galliani, Paolo Roversi, Sarah Moon, Sina Souza and Sophie de Saint Phalle.

I had never heard of Narcotic Concept before. The place is group owned, founder is Lunhea. I don’t know how many people are involved, the group compromises 23 people.
The landmark description consists of tags: “Art, Photo, Exhibition, Gallery, Music, Lounge, Club, Media, Minimal, Architecture, Dark“.

The landmark led me to a skybox with the art of Luca Pierro. It is a dark room, the walls display portraits, colourful portraits of males, some of the heads are covered, or express fear and danger. At this room I found a notecard giver with some information about Luca Pierro.

Luca Pierro’s portraits are striking. He is the model and the photographer. The portraits are not photoshopped but real life pictures. For the effects Luca tries to achieve effects, textures and lighting with as little manipulation as possible, so he uses a lot of materials like flour, milk, water and more. Many of his images are very dark and the intention is to express a micro and macro cosmos where the figure of the artist can forcefully enter the scene. The figure represents a man, “the man”, involved with the materials. All the elements that can lead back to “Mother Earth”. In this way, the body becomes the vehicle of expression.
You can find more information about Luca Pierro on his website.

Walking up the stairs in the skybox I could enter a labyrinth of stairs, hallways and other skyboxes, that are used to exhibit the work of the other artists listed on the Narcotic Concept poster. For each artist there is a notecard giver with more information.

The next artist was Sina Souza (sinalein). I had seen Sina’s art just a few months ago at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery  (read my blogpost here). Sina Souza (sinalein) started with creating images in Second Life in November 2012. She has had a lot of exhibitions, from which I saw just one back in 2017 “Mental Levels” at MetaLES (read here). Actually that was the last exhibtion of Sina Souza before she took a break of Second Life for 4 years and returned with the exhibtion at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery.

Sina’s art is surreal. Sina tries to visualisize thoughts, snippets that come to her mind. Her work is intriguing and hard to describe. You have to see it yourself and make up your mind about it.
Sina Souza (sinalein) has an own website and a flickr account.

Paolo Roversi is one of the most established Italian photographers, internationally renowned as an interpreter of fashion capable of creating atmospheres with a strong emotional charge. Paolo was born in Italy in 1947 and lives in Paris nowadys. The selection of pictures and portraits showcased at Narcotic Concept prove the strong emotions that can be captured in photographs. You can find more about Paolo Roversi on the internet starting at wikipedia.

The next room I entered is used to display the art of Sara Moon. The pictures are very colourful. I can’t tell which technic is used, some of them look like blurred photographs, others more like paintings. But all show females and fashion.

Sarah Moon was born as Marielle Warin in Vernon (France) in 1941. When the Nazis arrive in Paris, the family of Jewish origin is forced to flee to England. Here Sarah spends the first years of her childhood. After studying drawing, she works as a fashion model in London and Paris (1960-1966) under the stage name of Marielle Hadengue. In her spare time, she discovers a passion for photography and starts taking pictures. Starting in 1970 she began working as a fashion photographer. Today Sarah Moon is considered a key figure in the history of fashion. Her soft, romantic, melancholic, timeless images have revolutionized the conventional language.

Sarah Moon is one of the most famous contemporary photographers. Throughout her career as a fashion photographer and in her personal artistic work, she has developed a unique style, constantly enveloped in an ethereal, painterly atmosphere. More information can be found on the internet starting at wikipedia.

When I entered the room with the black and white pictures of Jeanloup Sieff that was quite a contrast to the art of Sarah Moon. Jeanloup’s pictures are very erotic without being explicit. A real eye candy in black and white. And Jeanloup Sieff was not listed on the Narcotic Concept Poster, hence a real “bonus” artist.

Jeanloup Sieff is of Polish descent. He was born in Paris in 1933. Jeanloup Sieff debuted as a photographer in the fashion world working for Elle magazine. In New York, the artist collaborated with major magazines such as Vogue, Queen and Elle. In New York Jeanloup Sieff reaches the world fame but chooses to return to Paris. France has celebrated his talent with a series of awards. It is in Paris that the photographer died in 2000, leaving his wife and daughter his passion for photography.

Eroticism as his distinctive feature. A provocative and elegant art in search of an immortal beauty. Jeanloup Sieff is one of the most important masters in the history of photography of the twentieth century. Nudes, portraits, fashion and dance told through an unmistakable style.
You can find more information about Jeanloup Sieff on the internet starting on wikipedia or on his website.

And after the black and white erotic art I experienced the next contrast enterting the box with the art of Maciek Jasik, another RL photographer.
Maciek Jasik, born in 1978 in Poland, is a photographer based in New York City whose work seeks to understand society’s relationship to the natural world. Through his art, Maciek Jasik not only tests the limits of color and movement, but also seeks to find a stability between planning and spontaneity. His photography explores notions of identity, gender, and self while working in a parallel world of infinite colors and puzzling physical phenomena.
Maciek aims to strike a balance between aesthetic and emotional concerns with a powerful, yet subtle and unique use of color.

In his years of professional experience, his work has been published everywhere from New York Magazine, Time, Huffington Post to Bloomberg Businessweek, Vice and The New Yorker. In addition to publications and editorial assignments, his photographs have been seen in the United States, England, Russia and Belgium.
I didn’t find a wikipedia entry, but if you google Maciek you find a lot more information about him and his art on the net.

So far most of the artwork I saw during my visit at Narcotic Concept were for RL artists, uploaded into Second Life. I admit that I didn’t know any of the the artists. But I had seen Akim Alonzo’s exhibition “Matrix” before.
Akim’s photos are loosely based on the cult movie The Matrix – a metaphor for a world of people trapped in a simulated, virtual reality that has many aspects in common with the Secondlife world.

Akim is a traveller and photographer in Second Life. He owns and curates “The Itakos Art Gallery” and he runs a website. I have visited his gallery quite often already and am happy that is exhibtion “The Matrix” is showcased again. You can also see more of Akim Alonzos art on his flickr page.

The next box I saw is dedicated to Omar Galliani.
Galliani’s works are mainly monumental drawings executed in graphite, sometimes with the addition of the color red. The technique is based on the use of graphite or charcoal on white or light-colored materials, and then traces skilful lines and chiaroscuro, also using the spolvero technique, which recall the artistic tradition of the Renaissance. Lights and shadows are in constant dialogue, intense and suffused blacks evoke and dematerialize the representations, sometimes embellished by sanguine symbols with anatomical, vegetable and religious references: a reflection on art and its silent and meaningful languages.

Omar Galliani is an Italian artist, born in 1954. Again you find more inforation about him on the net, best starting with his website.

What started as a short visit to a new exhibtion of Sophie de Saint Phalle (perpetua1010) had become a long art afternoon for me. And finally I also found her box at Narcotic Concept. I have reported about Spohie quite often already, the last time when I visited “Soltice”, an installation that vanished from Second Life way too quickly (read here). The exhibtion room of Sophie de Saint Phalle is kind of a selection of her artwork, a bit of everything of her art. I appreciate that you can get a picture of her style with this selection.

Sophie de Saint Phalle (perpetua1010) is a Austrian RL painter and book author. She mainly paints nude from models and abstract art. She loves to experiment with different kinds of paint and lithography. Her favourite materials are sand, plaster, glue, terracotta, stones, bones, ash, charcoal, natural pigments and more.
Sophie has made several book illustrations and was for many years political cartoonist for a well known satire magazine. She lived and worked in the Unites States, Australia, Rome and Monaco.

Sophie de Saint Phalle (perpetua1010) has an own gallery, The “SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre“.

Narcotic Concept is a quite unique art place in Second Life as it features mostly the art of RL artists. It’s kind of a bridge between the virtual world of Second Life and the physcial world. With the exhibtion it can be proved that RL art can develop it strength also in a virtual world where light effects and the arrangement of the pictures can be done in a different way than classic exhibtions. I want to thank the whole team of Narcotic Concept consisting of Lunhea, Ly Glenwalker, ZioRebecco Sciavo and Carle (carleonie), who worked to realize this exhibtion in Second Life.

Diary 2021 (126) September 19th/20th Bondage at Psi’s realm

Sunday, September 19th, I spent some time inworld in the morning mostly to do some reasearch for another blog entry. In the afternoon I spent some time at Puerto Esclava. pet (Newlifeloading) was inworld and we first talked about her wardrobe in IM. She has some work to do setting it up. I summoned her to me and we continued talking there. When slave Holly came inworld too, I summoned her also to me. I had fun sitting in one of the chairs there looking like a queen with the slaves around me.

September 19th: Diomita at Puerto Esclava with pet and slave Holly

pet had to leave and I had a nice chat with slave Holly. Then to my surprise Mistress Jenny came inworld and I returned home with slave Holly. I caught up just a little bit with Mistress, then I had to leave to tend to my RL.

I had a full family night again. It began with a skipee against Flo and Angelique. pet (Newlifeloading) and slave Alessi watched and later also slave Holly. We went to Carnal Intentions that night. I had in mind that slave Holly entertained us and the other guests and removed her chastity belt. Then she was allowed to use one of the dido cushions at the club.
Soon her moans filled the room. After she had her orgasm I put slave into a hogtie and kept her at my feet.

We had another random sub who knelt close to our group. I had IMs with Angelique and pet. pet was further working on her wardrobe and on the RLV function of it.

After Flo and pet had left to bed, slave Faye joined us. She had been absent for almost two weeks. Welcome back, Faye. We stayed a bit more at Carnal Intentions and after slave Alessi and Angelique had left as well, I returned home with slave Faye and slave Holly and said good night to slave Faye. I took slave Holly with me to our skybox and allowed her a second orgasm on my feet … before I locked her belt back on.

Monday, September 20th, Jenny was back from her short vacation. We met in the afternoon and spent more than 2 hours together at Puerto Esclava and at club Domme a Domme. We caught up with our news, we spoke about plans and about our family. At club Domme a Domme slave Faye joined us for a while before we had to log off to tend to our RL.

Our night began with a skipee again. Angelique and Jenny played against Flo and me. pet stayed at my feet and we chatted a bit while I played. it was a close game that Angelique and Jenny won. We were almost finished when slave Holly came inworld.

September 20th – Bondage at Psi’s realm (1): Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique and Flo with slave Holly and slave Faye

We spent the night at Psi’s realm. Pet had to leave for bed, slave Faye came inworld and I summoned her to us. I tied up slave Faye and slave Holly at the chains at Psi’s realm. I love them, they are perfect for bondage. I played with Holly’s and Faye’s restrictions, forced them to look at me and it was fun to watch how they both turned when I began walking around. Mistress Jenny and I spend a nice and relaxed night teasing the two. It was round midnight when we returned home and went to bed.
