Art in Second Life 2022 (57) La Maison d’Aneli June/July 2022

Wednesday, June 22nd, the latest exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli has been opened. It features the art of Celestial Demon (celestialdemon), IAMLOUVRE, Milena Carbone (mylena1992), PoloRheinart and Terra Paine (Tarrac Paine).

I got the flyer about the new exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli a few days before it opened and started visiting on Sunday, June19th. The first skybox I visited was the one of PoloRheinart. Polo understands art “as transforming experience(s) of and by an artist into objects/sculptures, paintings, photographies ...”. Accordingsly Polo’s skybox is filled with different art objects and paintings. They are related to different theme, all with a quite actual background. There’s the big painting that compares the Olympic games at Berlin with those of Bejing. There’re the tanks that roll over boxes in the colours of Ukraine, there’s a texts about women in Switzerland who are killed within their families, there are the raining bombs, a teddy and a bomb in a corner and many coloured boxes with terms, the most used term being “Indifference”.
It is Polo’s intention that the visitorindentifies with some of the objects, that the art inspires to think, that it evokes memories, bad or good (mostly bad though at least in my case).

PoloRheinart is in Second Life since 2020. He is the owner of “The Gaze Art Gallery“. Polo has also a flickr account.

Celestial Demon (celestialdemon)’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli is a dark, all black room filled with white bright rectangles. Streaks, probably hair, move through the white rectangles.  Two of the rectangles build a pair. The skybox is full of these rectangles, no matter where you look. Between the rectangle pairs you see a mirrored picture of males and females. You might need to look closely to get more details. The way Celestial built the skybox provides the illusion that there are countless, endless more of these objects. Is it a metapher for the mirrored personality in real life and Second Life? I don’t know. Every visitor has to create an own interpretation.

Celestial Demon (celestialdemon) is an Italian artist, who is in Second Life since 2012. In the accompying notecard for the xhibition Celestial wrote: “I don’t quite remember the cause or the reason that brought me into this illusory endless universe, but I know well why my presence is anchored here.
Free creation, unparalleled exploration and the few splendid people worthy of the name continue to give me the energy necessary to swim deep into this immense ocean, to grasp every shade of color and different points of view.”
I came across Celestial Demon (celestialdemon) in 2021 seeing the exhibition “Ethereal Eternity” (read here You can see more of his art on his flickr page, where I found a comment that describes him and his art quite short and fitting in my opinion: “artist with infinite power of communication in light and shade. Immense talent”

IAMLOUVRE is a Spanish artist in SL and RL. She has an own gallery, located just next to La Maison d’Aneli, the GALLERY LOUVRE. IAMLOUVRE is in Second Life since 2021, she’s a designer, interior architect and has several Master degrees. In the accompanying notecard you find a long list of her exhibitions in RL.

IAMLOUVRE’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli features many pictures over 2 floors. IAMLOUVRE presents her watercolour art, flowers and portraits on the 2nd floor of her skybox and pictures that look to me as if they were created digitally on the ground floor. All of her pictures are very artful. The exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli provides an insight into her style.

Terra Paine (Tarrac Paine) is from Canada and in Second Life since 2007.  In the accompanying notecard she wrote about herself and about her pictures: “Its all about mindfulness.
Is time an illusion caused by the passage of history or is history an illusion caused by the passage of time? So often we never notice the passage of time until it becomes a part of our history. Photography is my attempt to live in the moment.
Thank you for visiting my first photographic show. I hope you enjoy my moments in time.”

Terra Paine (Tarrac Paine) takes the visitor on a journey through her moments in life. All pictures are taken in the physical world – and all are very well done, not just snapshots. The visitor can imagine that the photographer wanted to save a precious memory. The motifs range from animals, over pictures from the artic, to houses and special sundowns, beautiful landscapes as well as macro pictures fo flowers. I enjoyed looking at these particular moments in time.

Milena Carbone (mylena1992) used her skybox at La Maison d’Aneli to start new exhibition in three parts named “The 5th Season”. It “questions our tendency to follow a path of self-destruction. It is related to the imminent threat of dramatic consequences for all living species as a result of climate change. It tries to dig deeper into the roots of our denial. The “fifth season”, is an imaginary season, which will replace the four seasons we have known. One season in a year, chaotic, devastating. A foul beast that humanity will have created.

The first part is called “Blind”:
Blind explores our denial of the studied, validated, stated, detailed crisis of climate change for which we are collectively responsible : natural, economic, social and demographic disasters. And yet we do nothing, but continue our frenzy of senseless consumption and expend our energy in war.
Blindness is a recurring theme in myths, particularly Greek myths. Tiresias and Oedipus are well known examples. Blindness is both a punishment and a way to change one’ s view of the world and oneself.
The exhibition consists of five themes displayed in an original installation, thirteen images and seven short stories.

As usual Milena’s art consists of texts, pictures and visual experience. In the center is the ruin of a chapel, on the 4 walls a video is displayed, hence no picture you take will be the same. In each corner you can enter small long room. Each room is dedicated to a story that you can download to read and that Milena illustrated with pictures and objects. In total you find seven stories … that feature Tiresias, Daphne, Oedipus and his daughter Antigone, Clarissa Dalloway, and George and Martha. Milena will publish the stories on her website, once the exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli has been closed.

Milena Carbone (mylena1992) is a French artist and is in Second Life since mid 2019. She discovered its artistic potential and since then has devoted all her free time to creation, associating, as in real life, images and texts: “Milena Carbone is a fiction in which, as in any artistic work, biographical and imaginary elements are mixed.” Her creative process is iterative: some of her images inspire her stories and these stories modify the development of the image, which itself transforms the story.
Milena has an own gallery, the Carbone Studio and she has a bookstore @ Noir’Wen City.
Milena has an own website, you can also find her on flickr here and you can read her texts here.

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.
The room that is usually designed for the opening events at La Maison d’Aneli is used by Aneli Abeyante herself this time again firstly to exhibit her own art and secondly to showcase art that she has collected from different artists. I assume, it is her private collaction – or at least a small part of it.
Aneli’s art is colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself: “I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.

There are permanently changing colourful abstract pictures with different layers, permanently changing and offering a different view every second.
Aneli Abeyante is in Second Life since 2009. You can see more of her art on her flickr account. Besides her own artwork, Aneli’s passion is curating La Maison d’Aneli.

Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it.

Art in Second Life 2022 (56) Coloured images by Cica Ghost

Monday, June 20th, Cica Ghost opened a new installation named “Coloured images“: “Sometimes all you need is a little splash of colour.

As usual with Cica’s installation you shall use shared environment, set advanced lighting and activate shadows from sun/moon and projectors. The environment settings are part of Cica’s art. For “Coloured images” she selected a very dark, almost black, sky with yellow stars. Nonetheless it doesn’t feel cold at all. I zoomed out to get an overview and changed the environment so that I could make a bird-eye view picture.

“Coloured images” by Cica Ghost – bird-eye view

Coloured images” is to no surprise a colourful place. It is a little town inhabited by Cicy-ish animals. You will find them not only as pictures on the walls but also as 3D-objects. And all of them are coloured. There are beings called “blue things”, there is a blue olifant, a donkey, there are several snails, bg and small spiders, worms, cows, fishes and quite some birds. The birds are very untypical for Cica – they are small!

There is a lot to discover. Cica offers places to sit as well as several places to dance. If you click the boxes “Dance” you can select an animation for your avatar. And dancing is fun!
The floor is either black with coloured dots or it is part of the buildings, that are coloured as well – of course. The little town has a lot of levels connected by stairs. You can walk of on rooftops, several of them are also occupied by animals – but they are all peacful *winks*

Instead of plants you find quite sureal bambus like sticks in different colours, most with rings of different colours. Some have blossoms. Around each corner, in the buildings, on the roofs you encounter Cica’s beings and – at least I – couldn’t stop smiling.

There are funny scenes at Cica’s “Coloured images” like the blue olifant who looks down at a little yellow bird. Or a huge worm winds its body from the floor upwards through windows and looks out from the 2nd floor.

The structure of the little town is quite complex and as you can climb and walk up to the roofs you get many different views. One big blue spider occupies a whole platform and watches the scenery. Another quite big red snail with a yellow house occupies another platform. You should try all the benches and chairs to sit to enjoy the colourful choatic and happy scenes. I did enjoy that!

Coloured images” by Cica Ghost provides a happy environment, it is a place to wind down and to escape into lovely and artful other world, to stop thinking about what is going on in the world and to just enjoy, to see the beauty with the eyes of a child, to gather new energy.
I did look for the cat of course and Cica didn’t disappoint me. I found a blue cat straying on one of the roof. I sat down and enjoyed!

Thank you for another great installation, Cica. Thank you for providing fun and happiness and for the colours!
As usual we don’t know how long “Coloured images” by Cica Ghost will stay open. It could be a week, it could be a month or even more. I hope it stays open for a while so that I can return when I need a break, colours and a smile.

Diary 2022 (77) June 3rd/4th Green light (2)

Friday, June 3rd, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. Again I took her with me to the annex of our skybox and selected something to wear for her from her wardrobe. I decided for a tight corset body and overknee ballet boots and added the full RR Vixen set, gag and blindfold. I restricted my beloved wife tightly and took her to club Domme a Domme to the failed domme sign where I leashed her. Jenny attracted quite some attention and I had fun. Jenny confirmed that she enjoyed her helplessness. I teased her with the forced view of the AnAVision …. and I made her crawl through the whole club to kneel next to me.

June 3rd: Diomita and Mistress Jenny at club Domme a Domme

Jenny’s time was limited and I still had something on stock for her. I went to Psi’s realm and fixed her between the chains just to take some great pictures of her and to spank her butt. We stayed not longer than 15 minutes, then we returned home to change for our party before we logged off to tend to our RL. We had agreed on a theme the day before:
“It’s Friday again, it’s time for our party to start into our weekend. We will have a beach party again, this time with an exotic touch. Wear a grass skirt or head dress or both – or just come as you are (even naked of course). DJ Virgo is spinning the tunes for us.”

June 3rd: Diomita and Mistress Jenny at Psi’s realm / at home getting ready for our party at night

When I returned at night Flo and slave Luci were present and we played a quick skipee before the party started. Mistress came right after we had started to dance. The Friday night party has become a fixed part of our first and second life. And we had fun like every Friday.

June 3rd – Friday night party: Diomita, Mistress Jenny, Flo, slave Luci, Kitty, Ebony Massey, Claven Albatros, Laura (Laura00175) (upper row), Della randt, Starbright Wingtips, Jayson Dakota, Baroness Capelo, Dely (krysbia), Virgo Babii (lower row)

For the afternoon on Saturday, June 4th, I picked a DHB corset dress from Jenny’s wardrobe. I can’t remember that I ever saw her wearing it. And I have no idea why it was (and is) in her closet. Right after we met I made her wear it and added a ballgag and the blindfold. I pulled the dress tight, what made her almost immobile. I took her to club Domme a Domme and sat down in one of the chairs. Jenny had to stand. I ordered her to make a round through the club – she couldn’t as she was unable to get over the edge of the carpet – funny.
The dress look just great although it offered not many different poses. I took Jenny to Carnal Intentions and later to club DeLust next. She decorated me very well! And at club DeLust there was actually some main chat. That was entertaining.
Knowing that Flo and slave Holly would be absent at night, I changed my plans and took my wife to Psi’s realm for a few pictures – and I left her there, helplessly tied, when she and I had to leave to tend to our RL.

June 4th: Diomita and Mistress Jenny at club Domme a Domme, at Carnal Intentions, at club DeLust and at Psi’s realm

When I returned online at night, Jenny was already waiting for me a Psi’s realm. She told me that there was no real entertainment, although it was comparably full. But there’s not always a Kitty initiating fun.
I took Jenny with me to our loft skybox. I helped her to strip, then I fixed her on the bench, yes the bench I have been fxed on quite often already. I kept Jenny blindfolded hence she had to feel me …. she couldn’t see everything. I first made her cum for me just with my fingers, then I stripped myself and put my strapon on … to fuck my property. And I fucked her hard – all mine!
That was a perfect start into our night.

After jenny has cooled down, I selected another dress for her and went shopping with her. I had selected two outfits from Avec Toi for her. I look forward to seeing them soon. Then we went on a big club tour starting at club DeLust. We stayed at DeLust quite a while, looked at profiles and listened to the rare main chat. Domina (Domina Ansar and her Cherry (Elenaslv Serentiy) were also there and a few other known faces.
We went to club Domme a Domme, to Carnal Intentions and to heavy Bondage Club. And we had a relxed night, chatting just amoung us and enjoying togetherness. Close to midnight I took Jenny home with me and she got another treat – and I had an orgasm *winks*- It was midnight – happy colalring anniversary, Jenny my love!

Simploring 2022 (11) Wind River

I came across “Wind River” and visited it, Friday, June 10th. The landmark description describes well, what you can expect to see “Travel back in time to the era of gunslingers and saloon girls, of massive migration and settlement. The Old West comes to life at Wind River, a photogenic backwater town at the end of the 19th century.

After I saw “High Noon” a couple of days before, when I zapped through my tv channels, “Wind River” was a place I wanted to see!

Wind River: bird-eye view and orientation map

The landing point is in a canyon and I received a nice welcome:
Hello, Diomita Maurer!
Welcome to Wind River, a small jerkwater town in Texas at the end of the 19th century. Don’t behave badly and observe the rules or the sheriff will drag you to jail!
Photographers: open rez for group members. Recommended graphic setting for the best experience is “ultra”. Best light: “shared environment”.

Exploring “Wind River” was great fun. The shared environment fits perfectly to the scenery, the skies are blue and red, dust is blown thorugh the streets and you can literally feel the heat. If you turn sound on, you hear saloon music…. “Do not forsake me, darling”..

Impressions of Wind River (1) – at the landing point / Main street

The small town is just great for taking pictures. There’s a saloon, a hotel, a carpenter, a doctor, a barn an an horse-drawn carriage and much more to discover.

Impressions of Wind River (2) – The Town

A bit outside of the twon is the chapel and the graveyard. On the other side of the sim you find a corral campsite with several covered wagons and horses as well as a herd of buffalos.

Also in some distance to the town you can visit a ranch. If you climb up the surrounding rocks you get a great view on Wind River.

Impressions of Wind River (4) – The ranch / another view on the town

Wind River is a moderate homestead owned by Camila (Camila Runo) and Jocelyn (zamitio), Kieran Sayo (gabrielbarrot) and catharhina are admins of the sim. Upon landing you also receive a notecard from Camila with a few general rules and some background information:
As some of you know, I’m a cowgirl at heart. The Wild West sim AZ Arizona was the first sim I visited after registering on SL more than 15 years ago. And the first sim I co-owned was the Mexican Wild West sim Sonora West, followed by Copper Canyon and Iron Mountain. Since then I built a lot of different places that had got nothing to do with the Wild West and I loved each one of them. But I always knew that sometime I will do something Wild West again. The time has come. Here comes Wind River, a project of love.

Well done, Camila! You created a great place, an opportunity for a travel in time, for a short trip into the Wild West: For me it also brought back memories to many old classic films. Thank you for building Wind River and for sharing it with the public!

I ended my visit at the saloon, there I sat down and watched the main streat and let time pass by…

Diary 2022 (76) June 1st/2nd Green light (1)

Wednesday, June 1st, was the first day of my green light on the occasion of Mistress Jenny’s upcoming collaring anniversary. I admit that I was a bit nervous about it as I hadn’t had a green light for a long time. And I was not unhappy about it to be honest. But I still am very possessive and Mistress Jenny is mine, hence it is good for us and for our relation that I get in control at least sometimes. I decided to start slowly to get in a certain flow.

When we met in the afternoon I first sat down with Mistress and we caught up with our mutual news. Then I asked Mistress if she was ready and she confirmed it. I aked her to wear one of my favourite dresses, to add her vixen collar and wrists cuffs, a ballgag and her AnAVision HUD. I had seen a very nice blindfold half a year ago and got it for myself. I gifted it to Mistress and she wore it for me. I think it looks very erotic. Then I took Mistress with me to club Domme a Domme where ich enjoyed having my wife kneeling at my feet. Too bad that there weren’t many regulars. But one guest realized and remarked how great Jenny looked kneeling at my feet.

June 1st: Diomita and Mistress Jenny at home and at club Domme a Domme

After a while we went to club DeLust but also there it was quiet. I played a bit with Mistress Jenny’s vision restriction but mostly we talked and I enjoyed looking at us!
We went to our loft skybox next and I allowed Jenny to lick me to a lovely and intense orgasm. And before we returned home, we talked about the night. The slaves will notice that I am in control but I asked Jenny nonetheless that we won’t behave any different.

June 1st: Diomita and Mistress Jenny at club DeLust and at home

Our night was relaxed and entertaining. We played a skipee with Flo first and then another round as team, when slave Holly was inworld. slave Holly and I won it by just one card against Mistress Jenny and Flo. Alessi had joined us and we all went to Psi’s realm. I played with Flo’s RF suit and we both kept teasing slave Holly, slave Alessi and Flo playing with their restraints – as it should be.

June 1st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm with Flo, slave Alessi and slave Holly

After Flo had left for bed, we moved on to Carnal Intentions. It was full there, hence we got some eye candy.

June 1st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with slave Alessi and slave Holly

Thursday, June 2nd, I tightened my control a little bit. When Jenny came inworld I expected her in the annex of our skybox. Before we caught up with our mutual news, I sat down and selected something to wear for her. I made her add a full set of cuffs, gag and blindfold and resricted her view and IMs. Then I took her with me to club Domme a Domme. We caught up with our news there while Jenny was kneeling at my feet. What a lovely eye candy! So hard to resist!
I took Jenny to club DeLust next, like the day before. slave Luci joined us there, but I kept Jenny restricted and at my feet. And that day, the second day of my green light, I corrected her when she failed adressing me properly, I insisted more and – point given – Jenny behaved quite well.

June 2nd: Diomita and Mistress Jenny at home, at club Domme a Domme and at club DeLust with slave Luci

Then it was time to fuck my wife. I had rezzed a “horse” at our loft skybox and I fixed Jenny on it. I fingered her first, then used my strapon to fuck her hard until she asked to be allowed to cum. I could resist to clean her pussy, but I was careful not to lick too much of her poisonous juices. That was the hard part for me! But I managed it.

June 2nd: Diomita taking advantage of Mistress Jenny

Finally I allowed Jenny to dress for the night as a dominant again and to take off her cuffs. I really began to enjoy being back in control more and more.

At night we played a skipee with slave Luci and Flo. It was another close game. We went to Psi’s realm afterwards. Some people there told us that Kitty has had her fun there. That made us laugh. We have quite a reputation *winks*.
After Flo had left for bed, we went to club Domme a Domme with slave Luci and stayed there for some 30 minutes. It was full and surprisingly even some main chat was going on, so we had some entertainment. I decided that Jenny (and I) deserved a treat. Hence we returned home not too late and I get a lovely licking from Jenny before we went off to bed ourselves

Art in Second Life 2022 (55) introspective by Milena Carbone @ Kondor Art Square

Wednesday, June 15th, a new exhibition named “introspective” by Milena Carbone has been opened at Kondor Art Square.
Milena wrote a blogpost about  “introspective” on her own website here.

Hermes Kondor, owner and curator of the Kondor Art Center, offered Milena a retrospective of her work. Milena wrote: “I suddenly felt very old… but it’s only been three years. Only he can answer the question of why he wanted to do this; and in this context, I can only question myself. That is why I have called this retrospective “Introspective”. A journey in SL. A journey in my inner world.

The exhibition consists of 19 pictures from 15 of Milena’s previous exhibitions during 2020 to 2022, just two pictures have never been exhibited in Second Life before.

The pictures are arranged around a large court, the Kondor Art Square. Those who are familiar with Milena’s art, know that her texts and pictures belong together like the two sides of a coin. For each of the pictures Milena wrote a text, which you find on a black board next to the pictures. The texts were created spontaneously: “I have written down what I heard from the depths of my heart. Today is Sunday – if I had written these texts yesterday or tomorrow, they would have been different. Nothing is really important.

Impressions of “introspective” by Milena Carbone @ Kondor Art Square (1)

I the center of the court are a few boards. One board presents an introduction into “introspective”. Three other boards deal with questions about our virtual existence in Second Life as well as with our existence in RL.
Why do we create a second or even more characters of ourselves in Second Life? Why does an artist do that – even though staying anonymous?
Then there is the love and passion we experience in Second Life: “There is never too much love, there is always too much hate: in wheat fields, in deserts and in kindergardens. When will we stop fighting against love?
And then there is our ignorance. we don’t see all the little wonders around us, we don’t appreciate them – and we destroy the planet even tough we are aware that there’s no second.

No matter if your read Milena’s text before you go to look at each picture or if you read them afterwards – they belong to this “introspective”.
On the backside of the boards are abstracts of a few of Milena’s previous exhibitions.

The texts for each of the exhibited pictures are also quite impressive and give the pictures a new spin, at least they did that for me. And of course these are only Milena’s thoughts, you might have others.
introspective” is an impressive broad view on Milena’s Carbone’s art in Second Life. It inspires the visitor to change the perspective, to rethink who we are and what we do.

Impressions of “introspective” by Milena Carbone @ Kondor Art Square (2)

Milena Carbone (mylena1992) is a French artist and is in Second Life since mid 2019. She discovered its artistic potential and since then has devoted all her free time to creation, associating, as in real life, images and texts: “Milena Carbone is a fiction in which, as in any artistic work, biographical and imaginary elements are mixed.” Her creative process is iterative: some of her images inspire her stories and these stories modify the development of the image, which itself transforms the story.
Milena has an own gallery, the Carbone Studio and she has a bookstore @ Noir’Wen City.
Milena has an own website, you can also find her on flickr here and you can read her texts here.

Hermes Kondor (aka Luis Vasconcelos) is from Lisbon, Portugal. He’s a former teacher of photography and photojournalism and looks back on 40 years of photography experience. Hermes likes to see and shoot and he loves street photography. Hermes is in Second Life since 2007. He is the owner and curator of the Kondor Art Center, Thank you Hermes for enabling the exhibition “introspective” by Milena Carbone.

Thank you Milena for another great exhibition.

Diary 2022 (75) May 30th/31st At the eve of a beginning green light

Monday, May 30th, Mistress Jenny took me to Puerto Esclava when we met in the afternoon. I had offered her my leash and she had taken it. Mistress also kept my wrists locked in front. We not only caught up with our news. Mistress outlined her plans for the next days. She announced to remove my cuffs and to have me standing next to her the next day. And I would get a green light starting Wednesday, June 1st, until Sunday, June 5th – Mistress Jenny’s 14th collaring anniversary. It would for sure feel weired for both of us.
We went to club Domme a Domme next for a few minutes, then we returned home. I asked Mistress to sit in her throne and to remove her boots, then I worshiped her feet firstly because i desired it and secondly to express my thankfulness for the green light. After that little ritual we logged off to tend to our RL.

May 30th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at Puerto Esclava, at club Domme a Domme and at home

At night Mistress Jenny and I were alone first. Mistress went to club DeLust and to Puerto Esclava with me. She enjoyed having me at her feet – and I enjoyed that too of course. But knowing that the green light would start soon made it particular. Of course we talked about it. I got the impression that not only I was looking forward to it. But I felt also a bit uneasy about it as my last green light was … last year?
Anyway, we returned home when slave Holly came inworld. Mistress had in mind to take slave Holly to Hidden Secrets, but unfortunately the place was busy that night. We played a round of skipee with slave Holly and after the game the place was still busy. Hence Mistress and I took our slave inside into our office space and I fucked slave Holly with my strapon. Mistress Jenny watched the show. She might have had a glass of wine while supervising *winks*.

When I was done with fucking slave Holly, we went to Carnal Intentions with her so that she could wind down.

Tuesday, May 31st, Mistress and I met in the afternoon again. To prepare my green light, Mistress had asked me to wear no restraints nor slappers. Furthermore I shouldn’t kneel for her at all that day. We went to club Domme a Domme and spent a relaxed hour together there, just talking, reading profiles and looking out for eye candy. Faye came by and decorated us for a while and just when she had to leave, slave Luci came by and took her place until Mistress and I had to leave to tend to our RL.

May 31st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme with Faye and slave Luci

At night we were surprised that Flo wasn’t yet playing skipee when we came online. But slave Luci was there. She had changed in her June outfit. For Hune we requested that the slaves wear their favourite outfit with fitting restraints. slave Luci had decided for a black romper, overknee ballet boots and the RR cuff set. We played 2 rounds of greedy with her, then Flo showed up so that we could have our regular game of skipee with her. Flo had decided to wear a RF Asylum Suit as her outfit for June. Also a good choice!

slave Holly and slave Alessi came inworld and joined us at the skipee table. When we ended the game it was Flo’s bedtime and she retreated. Mistress and I took slave Holly, slave Alessi and slave Luci to Carnal Intentions where we spent the rest of the night chatting amoung us and looking at people and at what was going on. There were a couple of plastic dolls at Carnal Intentions, looking that exaggerated that it made me smile. Mistress told me that one of them gives out the shape and skin …. and that she was considering to let our Kitty test it. Oh my goad!
It was another relaxed night and I could recover my domme side a bit for the upcoming green light.

Art in Second Life 2022 (54) Art Deco Symmetries by Melusina Parkin

I got an invitation of Melusina Parkin to see her newest exhibtion “Art Deco Symmetries” at Melu’s Minimum Gallery.

Art Deco Symmetries is the second exhibition of a series of 4 exhibtions about Art Deco by Melusina Parkin. I visited also the first part named “Art Deco fragments” at her Melusina Photo Gallery (read my blogpost about that exhibition here). “Art Deco fragments” is still available to visit.

Art Deco Symmetries is a quite large exhibition with close to 70 pictures over 2 floors.

I am a fan of Melusina Parkin’s art. Melusina succeeds to make you focus on details, to see the hidden beauty of some designs. Her art is minimalistic, often there’re only a few elements in her pictures.

Art Deco, sometimes referred to as Deco, is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I. It influenced the design of buildings, furniture, jewellery, fashion, cars, cinemas, trains, ocean liners, and everyday objects such as radios and vacuum cleaners. It took its name, short for Arts Décoratifs, from the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in Paris in 1925.
Art Deco combined modern styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials. During its heyday, it represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.

Examples from “Art Deco Symetries” by Melusina Parkin (1)

Right when you enter the Minimum Gallery you can purchase a photobook about “Art Deco Symmetries” as well as a catalogue of all photobooks published so far.
Those who are regular visitors to Melusina Parkin’s exhibitions know these books already. Melusina makes one of every exhibition. The book about “Art Deco Symmetries” is sold at the exhibition, all others are sold under her brand “Melubooks” in a seperate book store: Melubooks shop.

A lot is symmetric in our world and we love symmetry, we tend to arrange things symmetrically and we encounter symmetry everywhere. Just look at doors, windows, hallways, buildings, arrangement of tables and chairs, lights in ceilings, at wall … it’s everywhere. Even the human being itself is quite symmetric. And hence you also find symmetrics in Art Deco.

As mentioned above “Art Deco Symmetries” is the second exhibition of a series about Art Deco by Melusina Parkin (“Art Deco fragments” is the first and still available to visit). As oposed to the exhibitions the 4 books about Art Deco are sorted sorted a bit different: Buildings, Building Details, Interios and Interios Details. The books contain even more pictures (over 450) than can be shown in the exhibitions.

The Art Deco series of exhibitions by Melusina Parkin

Melusina Parkin is in Second Life since September 2008. She has been a fashion manager, a journalist, a furniture creator, a builder, a decorator and a photographer. Her work as a photographer has been showcased in more than 50 exhibitions – from which I saw just a few. Melusina has a flickr account which counts more than 13,000 (!) photographs. Extensive collections of her photos can be seen also on her blog Virtual Exhibits and on some slideshows on Youtube (links also under this post).
There’s also an online book with her Second Life exhibits 2011-2019 here.
Melusina Parkin has an own gallery at Time Portal and an own store for Art Deco furniture called “Melu Deco“. Melusina also owns a second place (Melu Space) with another gallery (Minimum Gallery), a bookstore and another “Melu Deco” inworld store.

I hope that I won’t miss the upcoming exhibitions with more about Art Deco. Thank you for another great exhibition. Art and Art Deco is just amazing! I enjoyed my visit and looking at your pictures once again – and I enjoyed our chat, Melusina.

Diary 2022 (74) May 28th/29th A relaxed weekend

Saturday, May 28th, I was inworld twice during the day. In the later morning I met Kitty at FDS Dungeon. We talked and caught up with our news. It was nice seeing Kitty alone, a rare treat for both of us.
In the afternoon I met with Mistress Jenny. We went to club Domme a Domme and summoned slave Lly (Lily Bloodrose) to us. slave Lily had been busy with her RL lately and that might last a few more weeks, she was eager to see and to decorate us. And she decorated us well, good slave girl.
Mistress and I left slave Lily and went to Carnal Intentions for a while and later to Puerto Esclava. At Puerto Esclava Mistress took my leash and I had a short time kneeling at her feet.

At night Mistress Jenny was out. I played a skipee with Flo and slave Holly first. And then, as slave Alessi were also present, we played another round as teams. The game was long and (at least to my surprise) Flo and I won it in the end by 1 card, after we were behind a lot. When the game ended it was far over Flo’s bedtime and she retreated to get some sleep.
I took slave Holly and slave Alessi to Carnal Intentions and had fun restricting them and leashing them to each other while they were forced to look at me. Where ever I moved or turned to, slave Holly and slave Alessi followed me. I had the idea that it would be nice if you could force them to look at somebody else …. for example at each other. There’s still potential to improve the AnaVision HUD.

We returned home as I had to bring away the wine that I drank.I made slave Alessi watch while I used slave Holly as my toilet. slave Alessi got the part of cleaning me afterwards. Quite a ritualized procedure – but I love it. It combines the neccessities of life with kink *winks*.

This time the mice didn’t dance on the table while Mistress Jenny was away.

Sunday, May 29th, I came inworld in the later morning,actually for a simploring tour. slave Holly was at home and she had had help cleaning the house, a pony girl named Jessica (JessicaMcCain). I stopped my simploring tour before I had begun it and returned home to see slave Holly and the visitor. Kitty was also inworld and she joined us as well. We chatted and I teased Jessica, slave Holly and Kitty. And knowing Kitty, she’s always fun and made me smile. I left after about half an hour and tended to my RL.
After lunch I started another attempt to go simploring. I visited Frogmore & Finnygook Cove (read here). It was a longer simploring tour, I enjoyed it a lot. Mistress Jenny was already inworld for our afternoon appointment when I ended my tour. We went to club DeLust and just chatted for an hour. That day the “Backflash of the month” post – Backflash May 2022 “Celebrations.” (May 25th, 2012) – had been published and I asked Mistress to read it. We talked about how we changed – and also how deep our relation had become with time. Just in 2022 our relation has experienced another dynamic with my full enslavement. Out hour together went by very quickly.

We had a relaxed night playing skipee with Flo and slave Holly as teams. We had a rare team constallation, Mistress Jenny and I were playing against Flo and slave Holly. It was another close game that Mistress and I won by just 2 cards.
We went to Carnal Intentions and spent the rest of the night there chatting mostly just anoung us. Faye decorated as for a while as well. Mistress Jenny and slave Holly discussed the the jubilee of “our” precious queen, a big event in the UK …. slave Holly and I just wondered if Mistress’ collaring anniversary isn’ the real (top secret) event that weekend *winks*

Art in Second Life 2022 (53) “made of memories” by Boudicca Amat at DixMix Gallery Lounge

At Dixmix Gallery Lounge a new exhibition has been opened on June 4th: “made of memories” by Boudicca Amat.

It is a small exhibition featuring just 8 portrait pictures of Boudicca. “made of memories” shows her, always in front of a red/brown neutral background, in all portraits but one she’s with red hair. Nontheless you have to look twice to see that it is one and the same person.  When you hoover your mouse over the pictures you get a thought, a title for each picture, for each memory – and memories form a personality. For example, right at the entrance Boudicca is shown wearing a Ukraine flag tattoo on her cheek and the title is: “… so very far from normal”. Try it with the other pictures …
It is a small but thoughtfully selected exhibition of portraits.

Impressions of “made of memories” by Boudicca Amat

I came across Boudicca Amat in August 2020 the first time, when I saw her small exhibition “5 Times Boudicca” at “The 22 Art Space in Bellisseria” (read here).
Boudicca is in Second Life amost 15 years. She writes about herself and her art in her profile:
I make pictures. I make them for my own amusement, they have no deep meaning,
I’m not trying to ‘say’ something – I use my mouth and my typing skills for that.
For me they are an exercise in arrangement, lighting and effects. Sometimes it works ……sometimes it doesn’t
And from the rest of her profile I can tell Boudicca loves to read, to talk and to write at least as much as making pictures. As for her pictures I can only say, I like them. You can find more of her art at her flickr account.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the Dixmix Gallery Lounge. And thank you Violet Boa, who does the PR work for the Dixmix Gallery Lounge and who is always helpful for me to gather information.
Thank you for your art, Boudicca, I enjoyed my visit.
