Diary 2017 (91) June 1st – June 4th: Quiet Relaxing Moments

Thursday night, June 1st, was a very quiet relaxing night, that I spent with my property Jenny mostly at Domme a Domme. It was quite crowded there and we had enough to look at and to read profiles. But mostly we caught up with RL and SL before Jenny left into her vacation the next day. I made no pictures, at least no pictures to publish in here. We locked another “victim” in the fram of our key holding service (read here). But that’s is about Thursday.

Friday night, June 2nd, we had our regular party that was quite well attended. Claven was there with her slaves Betina and Lexi, Starry and Della and several others of the Atomic Pixies, and Virgo and Tyra (as a tied up and gagged tigress – Virgo and Tyra are still Fin Saphir’s dolls). From the Euro Brats it was just Kitty and me. We had fun as always.

Saturday night, June 3rd, Jenny came online and we spent a relaxed hour at Domme a Domme while she reported about her first day of vacation. Well, in Second Life, she’s also kind of on vacation – always nicely tied up and gagged. I can’t see enough of it! I shouldn’t change it and keep her like that. Argi joined us, she landed right next to us at Domme a Domme when logging in. And of course she teased Jenny. You might ask … and what about the slaves? They all are somehow prevented from coming online by their RL. slave Flo has some health issues and is recovering and should care about herself first of all, slave slut cecy has new working times that will decrease her presence online when we’re here (remember she’s from Mexico and hence the time difference is an issue), slavin C is locked away at “The Keep” and not often online anyway, and slave Adarra just let us know a few days ago that she’s quite tied up with her RL but that it might become better by the end of June. Who did I forget? Yes, Angelique, who is enjoying her newest adventure – and Kitty.

When I logged in Sunday morning, June 4th, to make a simploring tour, I got a message from Aimee Riptide. She asked me if I could come and look at our Kitty. I agree but Kitty was free when I arrived at Daisy’s playground, a BDSM, D/s and kidnap play area owned by Daisy Rimbaud and home of the Evil Kitten store. Aimee, Kitty and I had a nice chat about a new cell, that should be available for purchase soon. It has some really nice features. For example you can’t touch own items (like cuffs) and hence you have no ability to struggle out of them, you can’t use channel 77 if you wear Real Restraints (channel 77 is used to get to the menu), you can’t cam outside of the cell (very realistic), you can chat but you can’t send or receive IM (realistic) and there’s a reasonable anti idle feature that will stop a set timer once you don’t move within 5 minutes. To sum it up, this new cell is perfect for a realistic punishment, that provides enough time to think for the prisoner. I will for sure get one, once it is on the market.

I took Kitty on my simploring tour to Flash Back / Flash Forward (read here) and upon our return from there we met cow Dana for a short chat.

That’s it about these last days.

Simploring 2017 (42) Flash Back / Flash Forward

Sunday, June 4th, I went simploring in the morning. Kitty accompanied me on this tour. I selected “Flash Back / Flash Forward” from the SL destination guidewhere the description caught my attention “Flash Back / Flash Forward, Giovanna Cerise’s newest installation, takes an abstract and dreamlike approach to time’s passage, our tottering on the precipice between past and future, and the commingling of time and space. Showing at Split Screen through July 31.” The featured abstract picture tempted me to explore it as well as the name Giovanna Cerise rang a bell. I visited Otium in April 2015, where some of her art was exhibited (read here: A visit to Otium). Unfortunately this sim does no longer exist. In 2016 I visited her installation Monochrome that was buildt within the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) program (read here).

Giovanna wrote that the idea of Flash Back / Flash Forward is “transporting the present into the past and projecting it into the future, aware of the implacability of temporal laws, for what is present today will tomorrow be the past, and what is future will be present. The tendency to emphasize and almost exacerbate the instability and impermanence of the perception of what has passed and of what is not yet is the leitmotif of Flash Back / Flash Forward.”

Flash Back / Flash Forward is mostly made of simple forms, which are arranged and piled up, most of the elements are transparent, you can walk and see through them, sometimes they appear, from another angle they are invisible. There’s no visible floor on the first glance, hence you walk and fly through the installation. Within this build are 6 different spaces that vanish in the complex but, depending on the angle, they are perfectly visible. Giovanna named them “The dream, The point of view, The desire, The lighteness, The impossible choice and The birth”

3D-art in Seond Life has the distinctive feature, that everybody sees it different, depending on light settings and viewing angle. Hence nobody sees exactly the same and each picture taken is at least a bit different and unique. I was impressed about the vanishing and appearing of elements and walls, sometimes I saw just a shadow of myself, and from another angle I could see myself clearly. My favourite space within Flash Back / Flash Forward is the one that Giovanna named “The impossible choice” as it expresses a lot about myself and about my Second Life.

Flash Back / Flash Forward is located at Slpit Screen Installation Space. Split Screen is an artist cooperative sim where all resources and expenses are shared equally by its members. The sim’s primary purpose is to provide working space for its members, as well as exhibitions and other special events. Giovanna’s installation can be visited until End of July 2017. I was impressed and am happy that I saw it. Thank you Giovanna!
