Art in Second Life 2020 (10) Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost

Yesterday, March 7th, I got an invitation from Cica Chost. She had opened her newest installation named “Another Fairy Tale“. As usual Cica provides a quote along with her installation, something to think about while visiting “Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch. (Hans Christian Andersen)

Right at the landing you’re asked to use advanced lighting and to set shadows with sun/moon and projectors. The scenery at Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost is set at night and Cica plays with lights and projectors to showcase her animals. This time we meet dragons, some snails, some other animals which I’d call horses or unicorns (it’s something inbetween), bugs, dead sharks and other fantasy animals.

The human visitor is once again just a dwarf. Even the flowers are huge. The landscape is hilly but sometimes what seems to be a hill is just the tail or the back of another huge dragon or animal. As always it is fun to have a detailed look at Cica’s animals with their big eyes that seemingly watch you.

Opposed to the landing point you find 3 dead sharks that stick in the ground. Their opened mouth is the entrance to kind of a living room for snails. And plants and flowers are growing from the sharks gills. Bugs fly around everywhere, I didn’t count them, and they are also really big. You can “sit” on them and will find yourself hanging at one to their legs and accompany them flying around.

By th use of projectors some animals are in the spotlight sometimes and that makes them look even more interesting, for example one dragon – or is it the monster of Loch Ness (?), comes up from the depths of the sea and looks around.

Close to the landing point is the biggest dragon, you can walk up it’s tail and back almost up to it’s head and you get a nice view from there. Under it’s tail, that is used as bridge, is another smaller dragon in the sea.

I had fun exploring Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost and looking at Cica’s animals. And you can let your mind wander and think of a fantasy or fairy tale that would fit into this scene. Although the animals are huge, they are not scary. They seem to be peacefully enjoying their lives and to look very interested at these little human visitors.

Overall, Cica’s animals made me smile again. Thank you for another great fantasy world, Cica!
