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.
