Art in Second Life 2020 (63) Third Eye Gallery October 2020 – Poppy & Thus Yootz

I got an invitation from Jaz (Jessamine2108) for the opening of a new exhibition at the Third Eye Gallery, featuring the artists poppy (popikone) and Thus Yootz. I visited on October 3rd, just a few hours before the opening.

Poppy (popikone) is in Second Life for 5 years. She has a passion for photography. Storing her pictures on Flickr she came across SL. As we all know the creativity in Second Life is almost unlimited and hence poppy gets always soemthing to inspire her. The exhibition at Third Eye Gallery is her first exhibtion in Second Life ever. It shows a broad variety of picture. You can recognize that some of her pictures have their origin in SL, but for some I couldn’t tell at all. Poppy processes her pictures with different tools and techniques. The result is intriguing.

It is also the first time that I came across Thus Yootz. Thus is in Second Life for almost 12 years and has many different passions here. She plans and organizes weddings, she designs sims and gardens. she creates trees and plants and of course she has a passion for photography.
Thus is from Greece and studied the arts. She has taken art in many group art exhibitions in Greece. Her pictures might be pictures taken in Second Life originally, or at least parts of it. Thus uses them to creat something new from it, she adds texts of colour effects, the uses several levels in her pictures. This way you can discover new details every time you look at them.

Third Eye is Jaz (jessamine2108)’s home and gallery – a place that is designed to showcase art, particles, inspire stories, and offer a quiet place to relax and rejuvenate. Jaz says: “It is the culmination of my many dreams – to create a place that nurtures and helps the growth of all types of creative endeavors – be it words, pictures, or particles.

Diary 2020 (134) Sept 22nd-25th In Angelique’s shoes (III)

Tuesday, September 21st, I spent some time with Mistress in the afternoon. Mistress first took me to Mature Dommes where we caught up with our mutual news from RL and SL. We then went over to Puerto Esclava and to Heavy Bondage Club and watched the crowd while talking until Mistress Jenny had to leave to tend to her RL. She was once again not inworld at night.

Sept 22nd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Mature Dommes and at Heavy Bondage Club

I spent the night with Angelique and slave Flo again. First we three cleaned the house in a quick common effort. Then Angelique and I had some particular fun – we swapped our shapes and dressed alike. There are several things we noticed. Firstly our shapes are not that different, Angelique is just a bit thinner and shorter than me and has smaller breasts. Secondly …. our faces… with the same hairstyle, same glasses we clearly look like relatives.
Angelique, slave Flo and I played 2 rounds of greedy and then I had a short photo session with Angelique to document our swap.

Sept 22nd: Diomita and Angelique – Angelique and Diomita (we know who is who *winks*)

After the little session we went to Mesmerize Dungeon for a bit. Sidonia was present and started her product presentation just after Angelique had left to bed. Hence slave Flo and I had a bit of entertainment,
We left a bit earlier than flotime, had another quick greedy and went off to bed.

I met with Mistress Jenny again in the afternoon, Wednesday, September 23rd. Mistress took me to club DeLust, where we stayed most of our time together that afternoon. Mistress Jenny got a new hairstyle tat really looks stunning and I looked at her most of the time. We caught up with our news and we talked. Mistress had a few IMs.

Sept 23rd: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin at club DeLust – Mistress Jenny’s new hairstyle

After an hour Mistress took me to our loft skybox and allowed me to serve her, to lick her and to taste the juices of submission. And I did so eagerly and full oy greed. Thank you Mistress Jenny.

At night I was traveling and had a chance to log in shortly late at night. Mistress Jenny, slave Flo and I went to Caged Elegance and attended Gravity (theriaeriker)’s party for a short time. But the time was sufficient so that I could catch up with Mistress and it was relaxing after a long journey.

I was not inworld Thursday, September 24th and most of Friday, September 25th. I returned Friday late night, just in time to say good night to slave Flo and to listen to the midnight song at our party. I was tired and made not many pictures, I just enjoyed winding down.

Sept 25th – Friday night party: Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips, Rachel Bloodrose, Claire (maddh4tt3r)


Simploring 2020 (65) Dya’s Southern Twilight

Thursday, October 1st, I got a message from Dya OHare that she has redesigned her sim and opened Dya’s Southern Twilight. This time her sim is “a homage to one of the most charming places of the world. Explore the “Big Easy” and the beautiful autumn landscape with numerous animals. Some romantic Spots and various places for photographers” (taken from the landmark description).
We’re talking about New Orleans, the river Missisippi and of the state of Lousiana in the US. Accordingly you find the 2 bridges (one for each direction), the French Quartier, an old paddle steamboat an the oak alley plantation at Dya’s Southern Twilight. Dya wants to take us back into the 1930/40ies and she did quite well.
Dya’s Southern Twilight, a moderate homestead, is another masterpiece of building in Second Life.

The landing point it close to the town next to a coffee bike and a board where you can join the group to get rezz rights. The windlight is a bit hazy, the sun seems to fight to get through the fog, just like it is at this time of the year. Looking around you see the old paddle steamboat, the river and the entrance to the town. Don’t forget to turn the ambient sound on. You will here some jazz music and Louis Armstrong’s “What a wonderful life” – very fitting to this place!

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (1) – around the landing point

I first went along the river a bit away from the town. At the end of the promenade is a stage where artists show some tricks. Dya used an old picture as background for the stage to provide the 1930/40ies feeling.

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (2) – the stage and the entrance to the town

I returned and walked towards the entrance of the town. I had a look at the paddle steamboat and went onboard. You can see the old steam vessels. Some rooms on the upper deck are furnished and document the luxury of these riverboats in former times. At the promenade is also the stand to buy the tickets for the a riverboat tour. Dya added a lot of details. For example there’s a board with the a tour map at the ticket booth.

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (3) – the town

In the town you can admire some street scenes. A homestead is limited in prims and Dya used up almost all prims. Hence not all stores and buildings are furnished – some are, just take a look. Dya also used a nice workaround. The store at the corner is just in refurbishment, hence the windows are closed with wooden boards. Dya added old newpapers to these boards to provide the right feeling of the 1930/40ies. Great idea!
But there’s also a little oddity. The tram fits perfect to New Orleans and to the town, yet the destination sign on it “Taksim Tünel” seems to belong more to Istanbul *winks*.
The street with the scenes is a great place to take pictures.

I went to the graveyard next. It fits to the Halloween season and to the town. Yes it is a bit scary, but not more than any other graveyard and I didn’t meet any ghost. I just noticed another oddity – the grave of Martin Luther King and his wife …. just does not fit to the time setting, but it fits very well to Dya’s Southern Twilight. What caught my eye next to the graveyard was a painting on a backyard wall showing thre musicians. Dya has an eye for litte details.

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (4) – the graveyard and the French quartier / the bar

I continued my simploring tour at the French Quartier. It is just like I saw it on pictures, just like I expected it to be – and very well transformed into Second Life. I’d like you to have a look at the decoration and the balconies. The bar is fully furnished and you can watch Louis Armstong live there. I recommend to have a look into the antique store as well.

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (5) – the French quartier / the antique store / the harbour

I left the French Quartier and walked over the bridge to the other side of Dya’s Southern Twilight, to the other side of the river and came to the harbour. It is raining there. Behind of the harbour is a village with a few residential houses, all decorated for the Autumn season and all close to the Mangrove swamp. These houses are furnished, have a look inside. In one of them you find the workplace of a witch – I loved it.

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (6) – the village

My next stop was the oak alley plantation. Again a spot that Dya has rebuilt very well and fitting to the time and the location. The ground floor of the manor is furnished and provides a feeling of luxury. From the river promenade you have a great view on the town, the paddle steamer and the French Quartier. That’s really a great place to sit and enjoy!

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (7) – oak alley plantation / river promenade / at the harbour

I ended my first visit to Dya’s Southern Twilight at the river promenade facing the the town and played with the windlight settings to get another view and atmosphere. And I enjoyed the place.

Impressions of Dya’s Southern Twilight (8) – Diomita in New Orleans

I’ve been to many places in the US in the physcial world, even in the Southern states and I’ve seen old plantations, but I’ve never been in New Orleans so far. But now, I feel as if I have been there already, much more then pictures alone could provide. Thank you Dya! You created a great place. I love it.

Diary 2020 (133) September 20th/21st In Angelique’s shoes (II)

Sunday, Spetember 20th, Mistress was prevented from coming inworld during the day. I went visiting a new gallery in the morning, the new DixMix Gallery and spent almost 2 hours there and I wrote the report about it right away in the afternoon (read about the gallery here)

At night I changed into another outfit, that was originally created as a mix and match outfit by Angelique. She must have peeked at me because when Mistress came inworld and Angelique and slave Flo joined us, Angelique was dressed exactly like me. What a suprise! And of course I took a picture of us. slave Flo had had a busy Sunday and asked for a game to wind down. We played skipee as teams again. Just like the night before slave Melissa came inworld while we were playing and she knelt silently at Mistress’ and my feet while we played.

Sept 20th: Diomita and Angelique at home / Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club with slave Melissa

slave Flo went to bed and Mistress, Angelique, slave Melissa and I went to Heavy Bondage Club. We read profiles, teased slave Melissa, talked and enjoying being together. Angelique left to bed inbetween. Mistress and I continued teasing slave Meli a bit and left ourself not long after flotime.

Sept 20th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home saying good night / Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club with slave Melissa

Monday, September 21st, I was inworld in the late morning, I had seen a picture of a new installation named “A Thousand Windows” at RioSisco Flickr group. RioSisco Productions that are Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni, the builders of many very exciting sims. The last one was “Summer in the City”, which I visted several times (read here). Long story short, I went there right away and oversaw that Mistress Jenny was inworld. We said hello shortly but she had to leave to tend to her RL. I went to “A Thousand Windows” and really enjoyed my visit there although I had a few interruptions. If you missed it, here is the simploring report .. Simploring 2020 (64) A Thousand Windows.

In the later afternoon I met with Mistress Jenny again. We caught up quickly, then I had to strip and serve Mistress and I got my fix this way. We went to Psi’s realm and later to Heavy Bondage Club and enjoyed being together in particular as Mistress was not inworld at night.

Sept 21st: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home, at Psi’s realm and at Heavy Bondage Club

I spent the night with Angelique and slave Flo. Angelique was dressed similar to me again. I met her at the house, where she was cleaning, and I helped her so that it was done quickly. slave Flo joined when we were done. We started with two rounds of greedy as I thought slave Melissa would join us but she didn’t appear that night. I went with Angelique and slave Flo to “A Thousand Windows” and further explored it while showing it to them. We found a way to get on the roof top of one building. That provided another view.

Sept 21st: Diomita with Angelique and slave Flo on the roofs of “A Thousand Windows”

After that quick visit we went on a tour through the clubs. We went to Dark Butterfly, BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club and Mesmerize Dungeon. We chatted and looked good (SM = Stand and Model). Angelique went off to be a bit before flotime and I went off shortly after flotime.

Art in Second Life 2020 (62) Isolation’s Passengers

Scrolling through SL destinations for my simploring tour on Sunday, September 13th, I came across Isolation’s Passengers. The entry led me to another post of Maddy Gynoid – Simtipp: Isolation’s Passengers (in German), which was very interesting and tempted me to visit right away.

Impressions of Isolation’s Passengers (1)

Isolation’s Passengers is a full moderate sim, group owned by “Shutter Thugs”, a group founded by Archetype11 Nova, who owns the sim. Archetype11 Nova was formerly known as Schmexysbuddy Resident and created the Hotel California sims, which I visited in 2019 (read here and here).

Impressions of Isolation’s Passengers (2)

Isolation Passenger’s is an art installation and deals with the corona virus. The landmark description provides the overall thought “When isolation becomes a religion, the living trade places with the damned.

Impressions of Isolation’s Passengers (3)

The landing is just in front of a large church. Scattered around the whole sim you find interpretations and elements that refer to the virus, to the quarantine time, to social distancing, to the fear of dead, to dead itself, to religion and to loneliness and the halt of all life as we know it.

Impressions of Isolation’s Passengers (4)

The single sculptures and scenes are impressive and inspire to think, to make a connection between them. And there’s really a lot to discover. I took many pictures here and they speak for themselves. Hence I retrain from further words and interpreations. Art and it’s effect on us is different for each of us anyway.

Impressions of Isolation’s Passengers (5)

I can only say, impressive art work! Isolation’s Passengers is an art installation you shouldn’t miss. Thank you, Archetype11!

Diary 2020 (132) Sept 18th/19th In Angelique’s shoes

Friday, September 18th, Mistress and I met in the afternoon. After we had caught up, Mistress granted me another fix. Just good, that Mistress Jenny is addicted to provide her nectar to me as I am to get it *winks*. We spent some time at Heavy Bondage club afterwards and talked with each other while watching the silent “Stand and Model” crowd and reading profiles.

Sept 18th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at home

We also talked about the theme for the party at night: “It is now getting colder at night outside… so wear your jackets and come and dance with us – or come just as you are

The party was not that well attended as usual but to balance it out we had some great banter, we had good music and a perfect start into our weekend.

Sept 18th – Friday Night party: Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips, Rachel Bloodrose, Talos (Talosborn), Claire (maddh4tt3r), Diomita, Mistress Jenny, slave Flo (upper row), Diomita, Mistress Jenny, Angelique, slave Flo, Angelique, illa Quan, Baroness Capelo, Virgo Babii (lower row)

Saturday, September 19th, I went on a longer simploring tour in the later morning. Mistress Jenny was not around during the day due to her RL. Hence I used my free time for writing.
When I came inworld at night, Angelique was present. I asked her if she had the time to meet with me and she had. I had prepared an outfit of her for myself, an outfit that Mistress Jenny did like a lot. And I had not only copied the outfit, I also changed my hair and added a make up blush to my face to even more look just like Angelique. The result was impressing!

I made quite a lot of pictures of Angelique and myself. Mistress Jenny did like what she saw when she came inworld almost the same time as slave Flo. We had a game of skipee as teams first and slave Melissa came inworld as well and watched us. When we had finished we went over to Mesmerize Dungeon.

Sept 19th: Diomita and Angelique at home / Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita at Mesmerize DUngeon with slave Flo and slave Melissa

We had fun at Mesmerize Dungeon, at least I had. Several times I caught myself looking out for me as I only saw Angelique, well two Angelique’s. It felt like being in her shoes and it also made we feel submissive. I also had fun playing with the slave’s poses and arranging them for taking pictures.

Sept 19th: Mistress Jenny, Angelique and Diomita at Mesmerize DUngeon with slave Flo and slave Melissa

Mistress Jenny had also her particular fun teasing me. Over my excitement about the double Angelique outfit I had forgot about a new rule that Mistress had enacted a few days before. It’s quite a subtle new rule once again strengthening her position. Of course Mistress had to punish my failure and she enjoyed teasing me with it.
At flotime we went home and said good night to slave Flo and slave Melissa. Angelique had left a bit earlier. Mistress and I retreated to our skybox and Mistress punished me with several slaps on my bum and breasts. I admit that I don’t like it at all giving her any reason to punish me. Even when it doesn’t hurt physically in this virtual world, the act itself makes me squirm.

Mistress had to leave as she had an early start the next day and I also went off to bed myself.

Backflash September 2020 – Diary 2019 (132) September 3rd A bondage night (September 8th, 2019)

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the new series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For September 2020 I selected a post from September 3rd, 2019. That was just one year ago. slave Christin and slave Gwendi were both just collared a couple of days. Unfortunately slave Christin has left us in the meanwhile. I had a bondage night with the slaves that night, always something nice to do and to enjoy – and always nice to remember.

Diary 2019 (132) September 3rd A bondage night

Tuesday, September 3rd, I had some time with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. We caught up and I was allowed to lick Mistress and to get my fix. My addiction to her, to the taste of her juices and to please her is getting stronger and stronger. Knowing that I need it ensures that I won’t forget my position. Afterwards we went seeing slave Gwendi and took her to Mesmerize Dungeon for a bit.

September 3rd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home and at Mermerize Dungeon with slave Christin

I had plans for the night. When I returned at night I took slave Gwendi to our Stonehaven patio and leashed her at the wall. Then I began to  arrange a slapping and fucking rack, a bondage rack made of steel and the dual slave post at the patio. I summoned slave Emmi and fixed her on the bondage rack. I tied slave Christin on the slapping and fuck rack. Finally I took slave Gwendi and slave Flo to the dual slave post. I walked around, played with the remote of the slapping and fucking rack, I used a stand with a magic wand to tease slave Emmi and I added a dildo gag to the dual slave post.

September 3rd – a bondage night: slave Christin on the slapping and fucking device / slave Flo and slave Gwendi on the dual slave post and slave Emmi fixed to the bondage rack

It didn’t take long, then slave Christin began to beg for allowance to cum, but I ordered her to wait until slave Gwendi had her orgasm. I continued teasing the slaves until first slave Gwendi and then slave Christin shouted their thank you. What a lovely show entertaining me after all the “work” I had before. I freed slave Christin and slave Gwendi and ordered them to care about slave Flo. I myself tended to slave Emmi, I played with the magic wand and finally finger fucked her. Eventually slave Emmi had an orgasm as well. Just slave Flo was unable to climax, I assume the batteries in her dildo were down … poor slave.

After slave Flo had left to bed, I took the slaves to Mesmerize Dungeon as I wanted to wind down a bit. Unfortunately someone who I had blocked pestered us standing directly in front of me, didn’t move away when I asked her politely and followed us to another spot at Mesmerize Dungeon. Hence we went back home. She followed us even to our home. I had to ban her from there. Well, that’s also Second Life, like in RL there’re a few rude people.

Diary 2020 (131) September 16th/17th Kitty is back

Mistress Jenny and I had another intense afternoon on Wednesday, September 16th. Wll, I can’t speak for Mistress so at least for me it was intense. Mistress started the afternoon with establishing a new regular rule for me. With time I get more and more rules to follow and to think about to please Mistress Jenny.
We went to Heavy Bondage Club where we watched the crowd for a while, then Mistress summoned me to our loft skybox. She sat down in her new chair and began to ask questions making sure that I got deeper in deeper in my submission. I was allowed licking her but while I did, Mistress teased me with more orders and if was hard to focus for me. Mistress seems to enjoy it and in total she added 3 restrictions for the 3 mistakes I made. At least I got my fix 🙂

September 16th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club and at our loft skybox

After Mistress had left to tend to her RL I really needed to blow off some of my supressed domme side. I went home and summoned Angelique to me. I controlled that she was wearing her plastic panties. Angelique had embarrassed me the night before by pointing Mistress Jenny to my outfit and remembering Mistress that she had expressed her desire to see me and Angelique in the very some outfit. It was not that embarrassing and not really bad at all, just banter and fun, but it was the perfect pretext to spank Angelique.

September 16th: Diomita spanking her niece Angelique

I ordered her into the corner of the room where she had to stand facing the corner. I told her off and removed first her skirt ant then her panties. Then I administered a hard spanking with my bare hands. When her bum began to glow I took her over to a chair and layed her over my knee .. and continued spanking. That was really a relief for me (and for Angelique).
Time flies when you’re having fun and I had to tend to my RL.

We had planned to put slave Melissa and slave Flo into the RF sub-suit at night. But first we had a greedy with Angelique, who couldn’t yet sit and knelt next to me at the table *grins*. slave Melissa came inworld right when we had ended the game. She had trouble to find the suit and what she found seemed unaligned, maybe long outdated. We took her to RF but she couldn’t get a redelivery. Finally we gave uo the plan with the RF sub-suit and took her to DHB to look for something different. slave Flo, who had annouced being late, joined us there. Finally we decided toget a straight jacket with leg-binder bag for slave Meli and we went all home where slave Meli got into it. Setting up a slave into something new or anything that wasn’t used for a while can take up some time and in the end it was flotime when slave Melissa was in her new restrictive outfit. slave Flo and Angelique went to bed and Mistress Jenny and I took slave Melissa to Mesmerize Dungeon for 15 minutes to expose her. Then we went home and off to bed.

September 16th: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique, slave Flo and slave Melissa at Restrained Freedom, at home and at Mesmerize Dungeon

Thursday, September 17th, Mistress and I caught up with our news at home in the afternoon. And Mistress had news to share. She had met Puddle Whore in the morning. Kitty or Puddle Whore hadn’t been online much the last 2 or 3 months due to a busy RL, but she had sent some signs of life inbetween. Puddle Whore’s Mistress Amy (Chastitycontroled) had been caught by her RL as well, hence both weren’t around much the last 2 or 3 months. The day before Mistress and I had contact with Alice (alicestrangelove), the owner of Amy. Alice asked if we would take Kitty back under our wings due to this situation – and Mistress Jenny had agreed. Mistress took Kitty back home that morning. Unfortuantely I had no picture to share. Welcome back home, Kitty!

slave Flo was inworld and we went to see her as she had the assignment to fit her DHB straight jacket. slave Flo and we thought she’d have it already but she hadn’t. slave Flo got it from the marketplace and we helped fitting it. Just the chastity belt was missing when slave Flo crashed and didn’t return. Mistress Jenny and I decided to play a round of Yahtzee before we had to leave to tend to our RL. Ann came by and we talked about Gwendi who we miss for over 3 weeks. We just hope that she’s doing well.

September 17th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home / with slave Flo / and with Ann

We had a relaxed night. slave Flo got the chastity belt and I locked it. Now she’s set up just like slave Melissa. We played a skipee as teams – Mistress and Angelique against slave Flo and me. Mistress and Angelique won it by 1 card, it was a tight game. We went to Mesmerize Dungeon afterwards and stayed there almost an hour, reading profiles, chatting with eachother, teasing slave Flo and testing the new straight jacket and enjoying being together. At flotime we all went to bed that night.

Art in Second Life 2020 (61) Silence by Theda Tammas

On September 19th the new DixMix Gallery opened its doors. I reported about it here (Art in Second Life 2020 (57) DixMix Gallery September/October 2020).
On September 26th Theda Tammas newest installation named “Silence” was opened. It is located in a seperate skybox called “Womb” at DixMix Gallery. I visited September 27th.

In order to have the full experience you should accept the windlight change and set advanced lighting and schadows on. The installation consists of several geometric structures that appear in the fog and become more and more visible as you approach them. Figures appear … they climb the structures, they melt into the structures. At one structure you see the figures walking in a long line, about 10 of them (I didn’t count). They walk but don’t get anywhere.

Impressions of “Silence” by Theda Tammas at DixMix Gallery (1)

Another group of 4 figures form a circle and hoover in the air. It is silent, no music, no noise, no sound – just you in the foogy, hazy skybox alone with the walking figures with the geometric forms.

Impressions of “Silence” by Theda Tammas at DixMix Gallery (2)

Theda Tammas is in SL for more than 12 years. She has had already some exhibtions of her work. I couldn’t find out a lot more about her. If I interpreted it right, then she’s from Brasil (I might be wrong though). Theda has an own website where you can see a lot of her former installations.

Impressions of “Silence” by Theda Tammas at DixMix Gallery (3)

There is a longer blog about Theda Tammas’ “Silence” on the 99 faces blog (read here). The blog deals with “Silence”, it’s definition, how we miss silence nowadays and then how Theda translated our desire for silence into her isntallation. The post includes a video that might give you another good insight into what to expect at DixMix Gallery

Art in Second Life 2020 (60) The Crystal Dragon by Cat Boucher

On Saturday, August 29th, I had some time at night unexpectedly. I usually don’t go to live performances at night as I’m busy with my SL family. I went to visit HEA-Gallery. Cat Boucher had an installation there at the HEA Performance Platform, which could be reached by a teleporter.

The Crystal Dragon by Cat Boucher – program / I attended Ryo Sogame

At the platform Hannington endowment for the arts & cool cat’s art music circus presented live performances of music artists. And the platform, the event space was designed by Cat Boucher.

Cat arranged a colourful ensemble of objects around the stage, big light objects looking a bit like mushrooms, glowing flower beds, giant ice menhirs and crystals … all in different colours, yet the main colours were greens and blues.
The platform was huge and the event was visited well, there were around 30 people and I knew at least 10 people, artists who’s work artists I had seen before.

Impressions of The Crystal Dragon by Cat Boucher from Saturday, August 29th (1) – upper right is SoJuKaNoU (Ryo Maynard), lower right is Cat Boucher

Cat Boucher is in SL since 2007. Like myself she was immediately fascinated by the creativity I saw here. Cat started to support live musicians and other artists and built a music circus to hold my events/concerts, a circus without animals but with clowns. She learned to build and to create objects in SL.

Impressions of The Crystal Dragon by Cat Boucher from Saturday, August 29th (2)

The event on that Saturday night was to the music of SoJuKaNoU (Ryo Maynard), a mixture of psycadelic and chill out music with some vocals. SoJuKaNoU (Ryo Maynard) is from Japan and a music geek. Listening to the music you can feel his passion.
The whole stage was flooded with different particles, fitting to the music. I took a lot of pictures. These events are noot static and everybody gets different views – and it is gone again. The whole installation is gone again. What remains are memories and the picture and the good feeling watching art provides.

Impressions of The Crystal Dragon by Cat Boucher from Saturday, August 29th (3)

As the event is over and can’t be reproduced, there’s no landmark, where you could go to see the event yourself. There’s just the hint to watch out for events like this for example at HEA-Gallery.

HEA Gallery is owned by Hannington Xeltentat and was built by Tansee, who also runs the gallery. Thank you Hannington for providing the space and thank you Tansee for enabling the live performances on Cat Boucher stage “The Crytal Dragon”. I enjoyed the show.
