Diary 2021 (49) April 13th/14th Some news from Kitty

Tuesday, April 13th, Mistress and I went on a short simhopping tour and visited Heavy Bondage Club, club Domme a Domme and Puerto Esclava. While watching other people, reading profiles and looking at outfits we caught up with our mututal news. Mistress had met Kitty in the morning and I had fun reading the transcript. Kitty is really having fun!

Kitty Maurer (Santana Thibedeau):
It’s been rather eventful over the past days, just stumbling from one adventure into the next. Kitty was goofing around at DCR (Dee’s Cage Room) and was caught by an old friend. We ended up with a group of about 6 or 7, all tied up. Then we started playing a game, equivalent to Russian roulette on restraint timers. Kitty didn’t do too bad, got out of the gag and only 2 hours on the cuffs but the spreader bar was still locked. Which was a bit of a bother because it was in the way of everything else. Others ended up with 24h timers before we started double or nothing.
While all of this was in full swing, Kitty was kidnapped. The kidnappers were two guys, who tp’d Kitty away. Kitty was gagged, cuffed and with the the spreaderbar on. They weren’t happy because … well, they found the spreaderbar in the way and frustrating. So, after a few hours, they gave up and dumped Kitty right where they found her.
Kitty got out of the gag and tried talking her way out of the spreaderbar. That backfired. Kitty ended up in a cage inside a cell. The next day, after much time, the timer finally ran out for the cell and Kitty managed to get out. But not even 3 minutes later, Kitty was kidnapped again. This time by a lady.
She first wanted to hide Kitty in The Storage but then changed her mind and brought Kitty to her skybox. Here, things got serious. In terms of restrictions and the cell that Kitty ended up in. She banned you and Mistress Diomita from getting even close, etc. Kitty figured right away that she wasn’t just 20-some days old but someone’s alt. Stripped naked, wearing a hood, gag, blindfold. Kitty could only face the wall, in ML, not allowed to look at her. She even turned the light off.
Crazy as it may sound, the next day – yesterday – she let Kitty out, asked Kitty to get out of all restraints…..

The story didn’t end here, Kitty told Mistress more about the mysterious lady. And if there’s more, I will report about it here.
And while we were at Puerto Esclava my blackmail roleplay, which I thought had ended, began again… (but I won’t get inot details in the diary, some things remain secret *winks*)

Mistress Jenny and I had a nice and enjoyable afternoon 🙂

April 13th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club, club Domme a Domme and at Puerto Esclava

At night Mistress and I went to club Domme a Domme again first. We both had slave Elena in IM. Elena got told that the locked chastity belt might prevent people from playing with her. Mistress had the idea to change slave Elena’s cuff settings. We took her to PAK and she purchased the lock-key-2 plugin. I unlocked her chastity belt and slave Elena installed the pluging to her RR gear. Now she has slef touch and no restrictions, she just can’t detach her cuffs nor can she take her own keys. We will see if that helps.

We went home to have a game of skipee with Flo. Holly (honoursgirl) came by and watched us playing. Holly had approached me in the afternoon at Puerto Esclava and I had invited her over to us. She’s seeking control …. she will get controlled .. and we will see how it works out.
After the game we went to Psi’s realm with Flo and Holly and spent the rest of our night there. It was quite full, hence we had a lot to watch and I used the opportunity to talk with Holly about her desires and about some basic rules.

April 13th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at PAK with slave Elena and at Psi’S realm with Flo and Holly (honoursgirl)

We returned home shortly after Flo had left us for bed. I restricted Holly to our island and we went off to bed ourselves.

Wednesday, April 14th, I found some extra time and went on a longer simploring tour before and after lunch. In the afternoon I met with Mistress Jenny. slave claire (Eroticlaire was at home and we met her in front of our house. slave claire is trying out herself and seeking new adventures, the reason why we didn’t collar her yet. But she stays close to us nonetheless. We took her with us to Heavy Bondage Club and caught up there with our mutual news, chatted amoung us and with slave claire. After an hour Mistress had to leave and we returned home. It happened, that Holly (Honoursgirl) just arrived as well. After Mistress had left to tend to her RL, I returned to Holly and took her to our dungeon and talked with her for almost one hour, to get to known to her a bit better.

April 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home and at Heavy Bondage Club with claire (Eroticlaire) and Holly (honoursgirl)

At night we first had a skipee with Flo again. It was a quick game, that Flo won easily. Sometimes the cards are like this and neither Flo nor Mistress tried to block eachother (just me *laughs*). It was relaxing nonetheless. When we had finished, Holly came inworld. Mistress Jenny and Flo went ahead to Carnal Intentions and I picked up Holly in our dungeon and brought her with me.

April 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with Flo, claire, Elena and Holly

slave Elena and claire both were already with Mistress Jenny when I arrived. We had a relaxed night with Flo and all potential slaves. For two dommes that is easy, if one is alone with that many, it is a bit more tricky and can be tiring.

As Mistress Jenny and I had  an early start the next day, we didn’t stay long after Flo had left to bed but went home and said good night to the slaves.

Art in Second Life 2021 (39) Marginal Mannerism by Bamboo Barnes

I visited the exhibition “Marginal Mannerism” by Bamboo Barnes in room Amalfia at DixMix Gallery.

Mannerism, also known as Late Renaissance, is a style in European art that emerged in the later years of the Italian High Renaissance around 1520, spreading by about 1530 and lasting until about the end of the 16th century in Italy, when the Baroque style largely replaced it.” (source wikipedia)

For this exhibition I would refer to another definition that I found in the German wikipedia and that fits far better for “Marginal Mannerism” by Bamboo Barnes: Mannerism is based on the idea that an artist should develop and emphasize his very own style, the “maniera”. The artist uses all technical possibilities to achieve an extreme design.

Impressions of “Marginal Mannerism” by Bamboo Barnes at DixMix Gallery

In this sense the exhibition features 10 pictures of Bamboo that represent her very own style, colourful and strong in their expresssion. They all show faces either alienated and or overlayed by other textures or structures. The spectator has to decide where to focus on and thus immerses deeper into the art. And yes, Bamboo Barnes has developed her strong own signature style.

Bamboo is in Second Life for over 14 years already, painting software & photoshop are her best friends. Bamboo had many exhibtions and appearances in the Second Life art scene and in 2018 she had her first exhibition in real life: “I create what I see but maybe you won’t, they are about people’s reality and  mind.” Bamboo’s art is a mixture of abstract forms, of people and photographs. Most pictures are colourful and it is in the eye of the beholder what we see in her pictures. I myself saw her work the first time at La Maison d’Aneli during the Holiday season 2019/2020 (read here). I also saw her exhibtion “Meant to be” at Itakos Art Gallery last year (read here). And I had a look at her flickr page.

“Who knows” by Bamboo Barnes

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it. I enjoyed my visit and seeing Bamboo’s art. The exhibition “Marginal Mannerism” by Bamboo Barnes will stay open until May 28th.

Diary 2021 (48) April 11th/12th The mittens issue

Sunday, April 12th, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. We went to Carnal Intentions to catch up and slave Elena joined us there and just knelt by our feet. We talked all the time and hence the time flew by. When Mistress and I had to leave Mistress took me to the loft skybox and fixed me on a Tubular Boobular frame and left me there for her amusement and because she can.

April 11th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with slave Elena and at our loft skybox

We were suposed to met early at night, but I didn’t make it as I fall asleep on the couch in RL (without RL there’s no SL *laughs*). Hence I ran late and Mistress (and I) missed the fun part. Mistress released me and we went seeing Flo at home. Flo had selected a new outfit with a corset and mittens, very nice.
Unfortunately I couldn’t lock the mittens and I remembered that we had difficulties with those mittens before. We tried to fix it, got a redelivery, reset scripts, but all attempts failed and even Ann (TransAnn) who came by couldn’t help. With such technical issues you can easily spend a whole night in SL. We gave in after an hour and Flo wore other mittens instead. It was already late when we began playing a skipee to wind down. And it was way after Flotime when we finished the game.

April 11th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home with Flo and at club Domme a Domme

Flo went off to bed and Mistress and I went to club Domme a Domme where we stayed another half hour just chatting amoung ourselves and enjoying togetherness. Then we went off to bed.

Monday, April 12th, Mistress and I had a quite uneventful day in SL. We met in the afternoon, caught upp with our news and went to Heavy Bondage Club, where we stayed for an hour. Mistress Jenny had a bit to fill me in about, as she had met with another domme in the morning. We just enjoyed being together, chatted and looked at people.

At night Angelique was at home. She’s inowrld rarely due to her busy RL and we were happy to see her. We played a greedy while we waited for Flo and as Flo came inworld we had a skipee as teams. Flo and I lost it clearly. After our game Angelique had to leave again and Mistress and I want to Carnal Intentions with Flo. And after Flo had left for bed we returned home ourselves after a while too. My fix was overdue and Mistress allowed me to get it – she has to make sure that I stay addicted to her sweet poison *winks*

April 12th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club, at home with Angelique, at Carnal Intentions with Flo and in our loft skybox

We know now that the mittens had a bug – and we wait to get a working update …. And that’s it about those 2 days.

Art in Second Life (38) Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros

In December 2020 I visited “Spirals and Metaspirals – An exploration by Simulat Almendros” at Hannington Arts Foundation (HAF) (read here). This exhibition is still open for a visit – and it is worth it.
Last month I visited again, this time my focus was on the expansion of the exhibtion “Virtual Tables by Simulat Almendros” (read here). The expansion was done by adding a second level above over one half of space.
And now there has been a second expansion, another level added above the remaining half. This expansion is named “Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros“.
I visited Monday, April 5th.

Lines of Force – the second expansion of Simulat Almendros’s exhibition at Hannington Arts Foundation (HAF)

Lines of Force is an exhibtion of pictures made using a simulation of the magnetic fields. While you can visualize magnetic forces in experiments in physics, you can also simulate the “lines of force” between the poles in computer programs. Simulat Almendros overlaps several of these magnetic fields pictures, he adds other regular formulars which influence the colors or the deviations from one point to the next – and the result is true artwork.

The exhibtion is organized in 3 concentric circles. The outer circle shows Linofo images that Simulat used as seeds for supersymmetric pictures that he calls Snowflakes. Inside he shoes pictures that are just as they emerge from the simulation. And in the inner circle are explanations about how the simulations are created.

Examples of “Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros” (1)

Simulat is in SL for almost 14 years. He’s an artist and displays his work at two galleries. In the 1st life tab of his profile he describes himself with the tags: “Computer art, philosophizing Web, graphic arts programming, simulations“. Simulat picked his name because at the time he got his first internet account he was writing simulations of physics. He simulated a gravity field and a magnetic field and later he wrote a system that imitated biological forms. These systems all used the computer screen to display the output as images.
The magnetic field simulation turned out to have the most artistic potential. Simulat spent about 5 years working with that simulation, slowly extending it’s capabilities and exploring the possibilities. That led to his first (and unfortunately also last) real life gallery show.

Examples of “Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros” (2)

Now Simulat rediscoverd his former work and with the better performance of computers and graphics nowadays, he could create even more and also more complex simulations.

The provided landmark leads you to the central landing point at Hannington Arts Foundation (HAF) from where you can take a direct teleport to the exhibtion “Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros“. Right next to where you land, you can grab a notecard from Simulat. In this notecard you find a lot of information about how Simulat makes his pictures. And you get even more information in the above mentioned inner circle, where several boards explain the different techniques.

Examples of “Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros” (3)

If you haven’t seen “Spirals and Metaspirals” or “Virtual Tables” yet, don’t miss the opportunity to visit both – it’s all in one exhitbion space.

Hannington Arts Foundation (HAF) is owned by Hannington Xeltentat. Thank you Hannington for providing the space for the art and for enabling “Lines of Force by Simulat Almendros“. I enjoyed my visit.

Diary 2021 (47) April 9th/10th Friday night party and a quiet Saturday

Friday, April 9th, Mistress Jenny and I met in the afternoon. Mistress had quite some news to fill me in about, regarding both RL and SL. We went on a sim-hoppping tour and visited club Domme a Domme, Puerto Esclava and Psi’s realm. And we simply enjoyed being together and chatting, in particular as Mistress wouldn’t be inworld at night for our Friday night party due to her RL.

April 9th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme, Puerto Esclava and Psi’s realm

Mistress and I had spoken about the theme for the party, although we wouldn’t be able to join. I picked a standard theme: “It’s Friday, Thank God It’s Friday and we have our party again to start into the weekend. The sun is not shining enough yet, let’s have a shiny night. Get dressed to shine – or come as you are. DJ Virgo is spinning the tunes”
When I got inworld at night and had changed into something shiny, I played a skipee with Flo and we stopped playing when our guests came in. Starry interpreted “shiny” as naked with oil – yay. At the beginning we were just a few, but in the course of the night we became more. And we had fun as every Friday.

April 9th – Friday night party: Diomita, Elenaslv Serenity, Flo, Claven with Kira Skytower and Laura (Laura00175), Baroness Capelo, Aimee Sellers (upper row), Claire (maddh4tt3r), Starbright Wingtips, Della Randt, Luna Nebula, Jayson Dakota, JadePhoenix Enchantment, Virgo Babii (lower row)

When I left at 1 AM the party was still ongoing….

Saturday, April 10th, I was inworld in the afternoon and went on a simploring tour before I was supposed to meet Mistress Jenny. I had just started my simploring tour, when Mistress showed up early. She had not much time. We met at our loft skybox and just caught up with our mutual news, then Mistress had to leave again.

I continued my simploring tour and roamed a bit afterwards. At Heavy Bondage club, I met another domme, dressed in black and shiny latex. I had met her before and had exchanged a few words. This time she showed me her place. She owns a real large dungeon, a place with many rooms and toys and I had fun on the tour – and with her. She’s a friend of Ann (TransAnn), no surprise that she wears shiny latex *winks*. I will see, if anything develops between us, but it was a nice (and exciting) start.

April 10th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home / Diomita visiting another private dungeon / Eroticlaire at bondage team

I got a message later, that Eroticlaire has joined the bondage team and was doing her ordeal. After Faye (Boy Serenity) she is the 2nd one closer to us, who is doing that within a short time.

My night was relaxed and quite uneventful. I had a skipee with Flo first. Then I went to Carnal Intentions with Flo and slave Elena (elenaslv Serenity) joined us there. She had asked me the night before to exchange her chastity belt with a lighter one – and I did that at Carnal. Later we moved on to Psi’s realm, where I stayed with the two until flotime.

April 10th: Diomita at Carmal Intentions and at Psi’s realm with Flo and slave Elena

I stayed a bit longer with slave Elena, then called it a night myself.

Art in Second Life 2021 (37) Spring by Fiona Fei

Fiona Fei (FionaFei) is one of the artists that I have featured in this blog quite often already, but not yet this year. I visited her Shui Mo Gallery (read here), I saw her installation at La Maison d’Aneli (read here), I saw “Impostor” at Sim Quarterly (read here), I saw her exhibit “Chuanghu (Windows)” at GBTH Project (read here) and I saw her installation “I Had a Dream, and You Were There” at the Hannington Art Foundation (read here).

Saturday, April 17th, her newest installation was opened at DixMix Gallery and I went there and attended the last minutes of the opening party. There was quite a crowd, mostly artists and I knew quite some of them from my art tours. The party took place outside of the Dix Mix Gallery building in front of Fiona’s installation, which is installed on a half round object, that looks like the screen of a photo studio. Hence it almost invites you to add poser and make extraordinairy pictures of avatars as part of the installation.

Fiona is Chinese by decent but spent the majority of her life in the West:
I have a fascination with Chinese history and culture, but I often feel like I’m viewing my ancestry through a filter of Americanized information and experiences. Furthermore, my artistic background has been in charcoal and oil painting mediums, and I’ve had very little experience in actual ink-brush painting. Much of my early years were spent painting landscapes and portraits using oil paint on canvas. However, I developed a love for non-photorealism over the years as an artist. In continuation with my love of non-photorealism, I now produce Chinese ink-brush art in Second Life and exhibit my work around the grid.
For more information look up FionaFei’s own website.

Impressions of “Spring” by Fiona Fei at DixMix Gallery (1)

If you have been to any of FionaFei’s installations before, you’ll recognise her specific style of art immediatiately. You literally enter an ink brush painting and become a part of it. If you look at the installation at DixMix Gallery built into the “photo studio screen” from a bit farer away you see some quite high mountains in the background with bushes and trees in the foreground. This time the ink-brush painted environment is not just in black and white. The bushes and trees are bloooming in red. You can also recognize a few birds, also in red, picking food from the ground.
Considering the strong third colour (red), the birds, and the bushes and trees almost exploding to new life, it does make sense that Fiona herself called her installation “Spring”.

Impressions of “Spring” by Fiona Fei at DixMix Gallery (2)

As always I had fun walking through it, seeing it from different angles and becoming part of it. Thank you Fiona for another piece of art.
Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it. DixMix was also present at the opening and I asked him how long FionaFei’s installation will be available. His spontaneous answer was funny considering that Fiona works with ink: “Until it rains”. Luckily that was just a joke. “Spring” by Fiona Fei will stay open until mid of May.

Diary 2021 (46) April 6th-8th Very quiet

Mistress and I met in the afternoon at home. Our stepdaughter Ebony was at home and was cleaning the house – good girl *winks*. We went down seeing her and chatted with her for a bit. And Flo came inworld as well. After a while we decided to play a round of greedy together. It was Ebony’s first time playing greedy – and with her wit and charme it was fun. we couldn’t end the game though as Mistress and I both had only limited time tat afternoon.

At night I went to Heavy Bondage Club while wating for Mistress. Angelique came by and we quickly exchanged about our latest news (not really anything new). We returned home when Mistress came inworld. Unfortunately Angelique had to leave already as she had another early start the next day. Mistress Jenny and I played a skipee with Flo and then spent the rest of the night at Psi’s realm.

Wednesday, April 7th, Mistress was prevented from coming inworld during the day. And I myself felt a bit sick, hence I wasn’t inworld at all during the day. And our night was short and relaxed. We played a skipee with Flo and visited Psi’S realm and Carnal Intentions afterwards. I played a bit with Flo’s update anavision, that works fine in the meanwhile. As Mistress had another early start, Flo had an early start and I felt sick, we went to bed early.

April 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita with Flo at Psi’S realm and at Carnal Intentions

Thursday, April 8th, I felt better again and visited an art installation in the earlier afternoon. Mistress was not inworld during the day. We met at night with Flo and played a round of skipee, then visited Carnal Intentions again. After Flo had left to bed, Mistress and I went to club Domme a Domme for a few minutes and then went off to bed ourself.

There’s nothing more to report about those three days…

Art in Second Life 2021 (36) Wandering and Watching by Melusina Parkin

I visited the exhibition “Wandering and Watching” by Melusina Parkin at room “Amona” at DixMix Gallery. Although I had seen just two exhibitions of Melusina so far, her style is easily recognisable. Minimalistic pictures focusing on one or two details. The simplicity of her pictures is intriguing.

This time we get a lot of information by the artist herself along with the exhibtion. Right next to the entrance is a board with Melusina’s thoughts about “Wandering and Watching“:

Urban subjects are one of the main inspirations of my photographic work since my beginning as a photgrapher.
This time I wanted to show some details we could always see when we wander around in a twon: cars, buildings, buses, benches, signs, fences…. They could look meaningless when we don’t look at them closely; they fade out into the mess of the urban landscape. Nonetheless, they are the essentail ingredients of the recipe called “city” that we cook and eat every day.
I wanted to show also two possible way to observe ubran reality: some of the photos are in warm tones; shadows and subeams are protagonists of the image like in a sunny afternoon, they give to our gazes the image of a friendly environment where we can happily live; red spots call our attentions while a warm, suffused light turns us to a calm mood.
Other ones are in cooler tones: they represent the less attractive side of city life: voids, decay, lonely and sad places sunken in the light of a cloudy day. Even tehm are part of our daily life; giving them dignity of protagonists can reveal their charm; in some of them a rather vivid spot on a faded and blurred background, remeber us that sadness and happiness are always mixed up.

Impressions of “Wandering and Watching” by Melusina Parkin (1)

Also right next to the entrance you can purchase a book:
Melusina All-in-One Exhibits allow you to keep at home the whole exhibit you visited and loved. It’s an alternative kind of the exhibit catalogue: you can hang the object on your home’s walls and enjoy the changing images.
They come in four versions, that you can choose according to your home style: plain or framed, changing image by touch or in random loop. The objects are set as modifiable, so you can adapt them to your walls.
Last but not least you find a notecard with Melusina’s biography by clicking the picture of her above the table with the book.

Impressions of “Wandering and Watching” by Melusina Parkin (2)

Melusina 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 two. 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 under this post). Melusina has several galleries of her own (links also under this post).

Her photos tend towards minimalism, which is Melu’s main inclination: simple details from daily life or usual landscapes are the subject of mostly empty scenes, stressing voids, space, geometries, lights; this reveals hidden meanings or pushes the observer to give them her/his own one. Her favorite subjects are wide landscapes, city views, industrial environments, popular lifestyles and daily objects.

Impressions of “Wandering and Watching” by Melusina Parkin (3)

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it. I enjoyed my visit and seeing Wandering and Watching by Melusina Parkin. The exhibition “Wandering and Watching” by Melusina Parkin will stay open until May 7th.

Diary 2021 (45) April 4th/5th Easter in Second Life

We had a relaxed Easter Sunday. Mistress was running late in the afternoon and I found the time to change and to go visiting a gallery. When I returned, Mistress came inworld. Flo was also inworld. As our time was limited we had two short rounds of greedy together, while we talked and caught up. Then I had to leave.

At night we first played a skipee with Flo, then went to Mesmerize Dungeon. The place was quite empty lately, the reason why we didn’t visit it often anymore. It was quite empty that night too, but we had a little bit of fun teasing a sissy in a pink dress.
I had in mind to take Mistress and Flo to an Easter Eg hunt and searched for one. I got a lot of search results but none really looked like being fun for us. Yet I saw something else that caught my attention. One place with an Egg hunt collecting to “Relay of Life” (donations go to organisations fighting cancer), was at a sim named Stonehaven. Really Stonehaven? Hence we went there, first on the ground level. It is a shopping mall and party place nowadays. Nothing to spent much time. We went to the Easter Egg hunt on a skyplatform and I took a few pictures.

After this little excursion we moved on to Carnal Intentions and stayed there until Mistress’ bedtime. We chatted, we watched people, we had some entertainment, Faye joined us after Flo had left, Eroticlaire was there in a cage. To sum it up, we had a relaxed hour at Carnal Intentions.

Monday, April 5th, Mistress Jenny and I met in the afternoon and went to Heavy Bondage Club to catch up with our mutual news. We didn’t stay long though, as Mistress was experiencing bad lag. We moved on to Carnal Intentions where lily (Lily Bloodrose) joined us and knelt close to us (to make us look good *winks*. We finally went to club Domme a Domme for a bit.
The real news to report in this diary is that after we returned home to our skybox, Mistress unlocked my collar and exchanged it with my slave collar. And I wasn’t prepared for it at all. But Mistress can and she needs no reason nor has to justify. At least and luckily Mistress rewarded me for not protesting and talking back and allowed me to get my fix. Thank you, Mistress

April 5th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with lily, at club Domme a Domme and at home in our skybox

We spent another relaxed night. Flo had hidden a basket with Easter eggs for each of us. Hence first we searched eggs.I admit, we have a little advantage as we could use the area search tool, otherwise we wouldn’t have foind the baskets.
We played a skipee wotgther and went to Psi’s and Carnal Intentions next. Both places were full and we had some entertainment beside that we chatted amound us. I also played a bit with Flo’s Anavision hud, that finally works as it should.

After Flo had left to bed, Mistress took me to club Domme a Domme and enjoyed having me at her feet again after quite a while. And that’s it for Easter 2021.

Simploring 2021 (16) IMAGO Land

For my simploring tour on Thursday, April 1st, I selected IMAGO Land from scoop.it SL Destinations. The landmark description read really tempting to me – simploring and art in one place: “Nature, Art & Culture area open for visitors who love to explore, relax, take photos or admire the highly talented artists works displayed in IMAGO Art Galleries.
The entry led to an entry of Maddy Gynoid “Simtipp: IMAGO Land“, which I read before visiting myself.

IMAGO Land is a moderate homestead owned Mareea Farrasco. It consists of one one bigger and one smaller island. The islands are quite flat and connected by a bridge. The landing is close to a dancefloor where are band is playing. Some people are watching the band. Mareea used quite some prim, mesh and animesh avatars to liven up her sim and this is one outstanding feature of IMAGO Land.

Right where you land is a teleporter and a big board with the destinations: Dancefloor, Bar, Beach, Forest, Rocky Shore, Small Island. These are all destinations on the two islands. The destinations Storytellers Burrow and Studio are seperate skyboxes. And the destinations Carelyna’s Red Alert and Gallery I lead to two other skyboxes dedicated to art.

I visited all destinations. The islands offer nice backgrounds for taking pictures, in particular if you want to take pictures with a few people. You won’t be sitting alone at the bar and you won’t be the only one taking a bath in the sun – and there are children playing on the beach.
All buildings on IMAGO Land are relative small and simple but nicely decorated outside. And of course there are some animals, seagulls and other birds. There are plenty of motifs for photographers. I enjoyed exploring and taking a few pictures.

The two skyboxes Storytellers Burrow and Studio can be used for taking indoor pictures. As the name already gives away Storytellers Burrow is a flat with many books. The Studio is a luxury appartment in a high-rise building.

Carelyna’s Red Alert is an exhibition of Carelyna’s art – her red pictures, hence the name. The pictures are quite impressive and get a particular strength as they are all held in red and black.
I had come across Carelyna in October 2020 when she had a space at La Maison d’Aneli (read here).
Carelyna is in Second Life for more than 8 years. SL gave her the opportunity to reach two dreams of her childhood. She grew up on a boat, and she took art classes and learned to paint on an easel with oil paints. This is the reason why she tries to make her photos look like paintings. She replaced the traditional tools with the computer. Carelyna has also a flickr page.

At Gallery I is an exhibtion of Mareea Farrasco herself. It is called “Painting the Summer”. The Gallery I is a modern gallery. Mareea’s pictures are quite large. They are based on pictures taken within Second Life. Most of them are in a little bit softened, without sharp contrasts, almost a bit blurred and held on light warm tones – reflecting the Summer.
I hadn’t seen any pictures of Mareea before and have no information about her, just that she’s over 11 years in Second Life and that she owns IMAGO Land and the two galleries. And of course she also has a flickr page.

I spent an enjoyable hour exploring IMAGO Land and visiting the two galleries. IMAGO Land offers something different with the many mesh avatars – and the two galleries were worth a visit itself. Thank you Mareea for sharing your sim, your galleries and your art publicly!
