Art in Second Life 2022 (46) Garden by Cica Ghost

Tuesday, May 17th, Cica Ghost opened a new installation named “Garden“: “Happiness is a butterfly in my garden.

As usual with Cica’s installation you shall use shared environment, set advanced lighting and activate shadows from sun/moon and projectors. Theenvironment settings are part of Cica’s art. For “Garden” she selected a very summerly and “hot” environment with just a few fair-weather clouds.

Garden is a happy place. It is a place to get to other thoughts, to wind down and to enjoy. Cica’s worlds are always huge, the daisies, the clover and the grass are high as trees compared to humans in Second Life. It is a real thicket, everything is green and blooming, just lovely!

The first animals I came across was a group of three cats, not hided but well exposed *winks*. Thank you, Cica. The three cats look at a comparably small caterpillar. And as in every garden there are pots or other containers used for decoration or plants.

Other animals in Cica’s Garden are butterflies, snail and ants. You can purchase the butterflies at the garden. There’s a turned over pot used as a little on site store. These butterflies are not flying around, They are static but flapping wings.
Another typical tool you need in a garden is a ladder (at least with these high flowers *winks*). A huge ladder is kind of a landmark in Cica’s Garden.

It is fun to explore Cica’s Garden. You find nice scenes with happy inhabitants and it is just a joy to watch. I didn’t find any places to sit and watch though this time. But I might have been not looking out enough. What I did find is a place to dance and I tried it out. I liked in particular a scene were the ants are collaborating to  bend down a flower. Two others ants watch three ants working – just like in RL!

Did I mention the butterflies? They are also quite human, standing around flapping their wings or flying and enjoying the scene. With the fresh Summer colours, all the green, the lovely animals, and the contagious fun they have, Garden is a really happy place.

If you’re not in a happy mood, visit Cica’s Garden. It will make you smile! I enjoyed my short visit a lot and returned with a smile in my face.
Thank you Cica for another lovely installation!
