Art in Second Life 2021 (1) Hidden Beauty – Group exhibition at DixMix Gallery

On Saturday, December 19th, 2020 a group exhibtion was opened at DixMix Gallery.

Hidden Beauty – Group exhibition at DixMix Gallery

The exhibition compromises ten pictures of ten artists, namely: Randonee Noel, Syn Huntress, Del May, Paola Mills, Wicca Merlin, Talloulah Warra, Megan Prumier, Amber Wild, Maloe Vansant and DixMix Source.
Some of these artists have benn covered already in this blog and I can recognize their style. Although ten artists have contributed there’s a common theme – Hidden Beauty.

Hidden Beauty – Group exhibition at DixMix Gallery: Randonee Noel – Darker Facets / Maloe Vansant – Habibi / DixMix Source – Syra No

Beauty might be hidden behind a veil, a mask (quite common in this day and age) or by hands. In either case the full beauty can still be recognized.

But beauty may also be the body of a pregnant woman and the really hidden baby, it might be the toddler, it might even be hidden behind a fantasy being made of steel and biological material. The exhibition radiates the power of beauty from ten different perspectives.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it. I enjoyed my visit. The Group exhibition “Hidden Beauty” will stay open until

Art in Second Life 2020 (85) Moki Yuitza – Geomorphism

I visited “Geomorphism”, an installation by Moki Yuitza at the art platform of DixMix Gallery.

Geomorphism is an art intallation using a lot of light effects. You should set your windlight to midnight for seeing it correctly. Geomorphism is set up in a cube. In the center is a big tree. All walls are covered with sort of geometrical forms – and they are permanently changing. The main light effect is in white and is topped with a kind of aurea borealis. Hence you get a lot of different impressions, depending where you look at, at what time, from what viewing angle.

Impressions of “Geomorphism” by Moki Yuitza at DixMix Gallery (1)

But there is more than that, there are several smaller trees that are decorated with spheres, there are flowers on the ground and grass …. and all is mainly in white. The light effects are amazing and my pictures have become an artwork themselves, unique, not reproducable.

Moki Yuita is in Second Life for over 12 years. I came across her twice so far. One time in 2019 when she was participating in an exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read here https://wp.me/psPPu-4Mb) and one time when I visited an installation of her at LEA 19 “Hypercube – labyrinth of the mind” in 2018 (read here https://wp.me/psPPu-3Xl).
Moki has had a log more exhibtions and installation, that I missed. Well you can see all in Second Life *winks*. Moki’s profile is full of installations of her that are gone in the meanwhile. The virtual world is even more short-lived than the physical world.

Impressions of “Geomorphism” by Moki Yuitza at DixMix Gallery (2)

I found this about Moki from a notecard for La Maison d’Aneli: “In RL I am an architect and in this metaverse I found the possibility to realize my idea of ​​space and my architectural fantasy, as well as to share it with other people.” That does fit to Geomorphism at DixMix Gallery as well.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing to it, and last but not least thank you Moki Yuitza for your installation. I enjoyed my visit.
“Moki Yuitza – Geomorphism” will stay open for visitors at least until end of Jan 2021.

Art in Second Life 2020 (84) Barock by Caly Applewhyte

I visited the exhibtion “Barock by Caly Applewhyte” which was opened December 5th at the DixMix Gallery. The theme of Caly (Calypso Applewhyte)’s pictures in the room “Abby” is – surprise – Barock. The room itself is decorated with the luxury colour of this period – red. Dark red curtains at each side of each picture like a curtain being opened to showcase the art. Red lights at the red walls, a dark floor.

The pictures itself presents avatars, fantasy persons, not necessarily from that era, but with wild hairstyles and often colourful make-up. But they all are dressed according to Barock. And the paint has already become brittle like it does on old paintings. This combination is intriguing and invites to take a closer look to decide which effect is dominating in this or that painting.

examples from “Barock by Caly Applewhyte” at DixMix Gallery (1)

Caly (Calypso Applewhyte) is a SL Photographer from France, who joined SL in 2010. Her focus is the avatar itself as a means of expression to transport emotions. She processes her pictures with Photoshop. I have seen her work already a few times and you can recognise her style, she has found her personal characteristic artistic style. Her pictures do tell stories, like good art has to do.
According to her profile Caly also blogs and has written articles for several magazines. And she also make portrait pictures of course. You can see her work also on her flickr account.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing to it, and last but not least thank you Caly Applewhyte for your pictures. I enjoyed my visit.
“Barock by Caly Applewhyte” will stay open for visitors until Jan 15th.

Simploring 2020 (81) Oblivion

For my simploring tour on Saturday, November 14th, I picked Oblivion from scoop.it SL Destinations. The entry led to a blogpost of Susann Decuir “Simtipp: Oblivion (Adult)“. When reading the post I remembered why the name rang a bell. I was there before when I tried to get to the DixMix Gallery while it wasn’t yet opened. Oblivion is in the same region and it was mainly built by Megan Prumier who is also involved in the DixMix Gallery.

Oblivion – Bird’s eye view / at the landing point / crossing the bridge

Oblivion occupies a quarter of the region. It’s rated adult. Oblivion is owned by Dante (Gian Fetuccio) und MAYA (mayamoxie). As mentioned above Megan Prumier built most of it.

From the landing point you have to walk over a long bridge to get to Oblivion which is located on a seperate island. There’s a sign “Trepassers will be violated. Can there be anything more inviting in Second Life, in particular in an adult sim?

Oblivion – The Main Event Dome (1)

On the island are three buildings and a couple of places to cuddle, sit or meet with friends. I called the main building in the center of the island “Main Event Dome”. It is a huge building and has one big round room inside, perfect for events. Along the sides are several opportunities to sit, play billard, expose a slave or sub, meet and talk with friends, read or cuddle. I tried out some of them. Opposed to the entrance in a dj desk, hence i suppose that the dome is or will be used for events.

Oblivion – The Main Event Dome (2)

On the left side of the Main Event Dome is another larger building formed like a cross. The light inside has a green touch and makes it look a bit mysterious. In the center ot the cross is a round meeting place which looks very luxurious, almost like a room in a palace. From here doors lead to the 4 arms of the cross and in each of them is one room with a BDSM furniture in the center of it: A cross, a bird cage, a lounger and a doll cage. I couldn’t resists and tried out each.

Oblivion – The Luxury Playroom

The third building in a small tower which is used as a bathroom. The three buildings are surrounded by a park with several opportunities to sit or talk. The whole scenery looks quite neat and luxurious. It might be a secret club meeting here, maybe a circle of doms who enjoy some time with their subs here … or are there BDSM events celebrated here? I don’t know, yet what I know is that the place excited me and that I might come back to see what happens here.

Oblivion – Bath-Tower and places to sit and meet

Thank you Dante (Gian Fetuccio) and MAYA (mayamoxie) for sharing your place with the public, thank you Megan for building it. I enjoyed my visit.

Art in Second Life 2020 (72) Charly Keeley-Keating – Autumns Glow

I got an invitation to see “Autumns Glow” by Charly Keeley-Keating for Ocotber 24th. I love the colours of Autumn and the picture on the invitation was really stunning. I was prevented going there due to my RL activities, but I went on Tuesday, Ocotber 27th. “Autumns Glow” is showcased in the room “Amalfia” at Dixmix Gallery.

The exhibtion is not large, it consists of 10 pictures. The floor of the room is excellent decorated with objects fitting to the theme: leaves, mushrooms, logs, snags and rakes on brown tiles. The decoration was done by Megan Prumier.

The pictures are just beautiful, very colourful and expressive, almost too beautiful. But I have seen such scenes in the physical world. Charly has the talent to get the right light, angle and perspective to make her pictures. I assume that they are not very much processed. Excellent work!

I hadn’t come across anything from Charly Keeley-Keating (ladycharis) before. Charly is in Second Life for almost 10 years and it doesn’t surprise me anymore that her passion is photography in Second Life: “Life is full of every day stress, worries, and what if’s…and we all handle it differently…..For me its turning images from Second Life into Art I visualize in my mind. Oh and coffee and cookies!! Smiles… 🙂

Charly has a flickr page and there I found a few words that describe her and her pictures almost perfectly: “Painter of thoughts, photographer of dreams…..”

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it, and last but not least thank you Charly Keeley-Keating for your great pictures. I enjoyed my visit a lot.
“Charly Keeley-Keating – Autumns Glow” will stay open for visitors until November 20th.

Art in Second Life 2020 (69) “Craving by Moon Edenbaum”

I visited Dixmix Gallery again, which was built by Megan Prumier, and which I came across by the hint of Violet Boa (read here). At the room Abby a new exhibtion was opened on Saturday, October 10th: “Craving by Moon Edenbaum”.

Moon Edenbaum’s exhibition can be tagged with “Sensuality, shadow and light, point of view and monochrome”

Moon is in Second Life for over 10 years. In his profile I read about him: “the more I learn the less I know , SL photographer & soul explorer”

Impressions of “Craving by Moon Edenbaum”

Moon’s pictures are highly erotic. The pictures radiate sensuality as well as a bit of melancholy. As they are in black and white the focus is only on the female body and face. Moon plays very well with shadows and light to enhance his work. You can see a lot more of him at his flickr page here.

Example from “Craving by Moon Edenbaum”

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it, thank you Violet for the hint and last but not least thank you Moon for your great pictures. I enjoyed my visit. “Craving by Moon Edenbaum” will stay open for visitors until November 6th.

Art in Second Life 2020 (57) DixMix Gallery September/October 2020

I got an invite from Violet Boa to attend the opening of the new DixMix Gallery, which was yesterday, September 19th. As I have other activities in Second Life at night, I couldn’t attend and visited today.

The “new” DixMix Gallery? I didn’t know the old one nor did I have come across DixMix Source, who onws the gallery, before.

Six month ago Dixmix convinced his friend and builder Megan Prumier to build a brand-new Gallery. Everything started with a drawing, became a 3D model and step by step, prim after prim, all has been thought and built to show pictures in the best way and make visitors catch that important feeling. The new gallery has the same surface as the old one, but it looks bigger because space is used differently. On the lower floor are three Photography Gallery Rooms dedicated to three very important friends of Dixmix Source: Amona, Abby and Amalfia (R.I.P.)” (taken from a notecard I got from Violet Boa)

The new DixMix Gallery from outside and first impressions from inside

Megan Prumier is a multimedia artist and very active builder. She’s in Second Life for more than 10 yers. Her skills are extended on the field of photography, mostly portraits on modern, minimal and even surreal Scenes. I did see quite a lot of Megan Prumier’s work already, mostly sims she built or was involved in. Just lately I saw Kiyori (read here) and Voodoo Land (read here). I saw Megan’s art last time at La Maison d’Aneli in Septmber 2019 (read here).

DixMix Source is from Brussels Belgium and is in Second Life for almost 14 years. He always had a gallery. He dscribes himself as “artist, photographer, director, musician and more

The DixMix Gallery has several areas. In the middle of the room is a large party space. There shall be a party every Saturday night. Adjacent to the party zone are the above mentioned 3 exhibtion rooms. The party zone itself is decorated with Megan Prumier’s art and has an open view into the 3 exhibition rooms. On the 2nd foor is a “chill out” area with a café and places to sit and meet surrounded by art of Mistero Hifeng. On the 2nd floor are 2 more exhibtion rooms. One showcases the art of Megan Prumier and of various other artists, one is didicated to DixMix Source’s own work.

Impressions of DixMix Gallery chill-out area (left pictures) / Megan Prumier’s art around the party area

I started my visit in the room Amona, which feature currently the art of Maloe Vansant. Maloe Vansant joined Second Life in 2007, a new world for her who had never played games or joined any social network site:
After creating little Maloe, my barbie doll, my pixel soul, I discovered the possibility of making snapshots and I started to make a graphic diary of Maloe’s journey in Second Life, showing the emotions she experienced in this pixel world. I think I succeeded in doing this by using some post processing in Photoshop. I am not a woman of many words, I try to express myself, my feelings, my passion and probably my dark side through my pictures.“

Maloe Vansant at DixMix Gallery September/October 2020

Maloe says about her exhibition at DixMix GalleryI let the visitor make his own story about them, for me, they thrive on my emotions and feelings of that moment.” Enough said, I think.

The room Amalfia features the art of Edie Horngold. It is the first time I came across Edie Horngold and I couldn’t find much about her. She’s in Second Life for over 11 years and began showing her art three years ago supported and encouraged by DixMix Source. Her pictures are quite artful, mostly showing beautiful female avatars or their faces. Edie adds something artful to them, something that changes the picture and gives it a new meaning, a new story.

Edie Horngold at DixMix Gallery September/October 2020

Cecilia Nansen’s work is shown in the room “Abby”. Cecilia Nansen joined Second Life over ten years ago, but took a long break from it. She returned four years ago and found her passion for pictures and learned how to process them. Cecilia Nansen and Maloe Vansant are close friends. I saw the exhibtion “Phenomenal Women” that both created together, just a months ago at at Itakos Project and Art Gallery (read here).

Cecilia Nansen at DixMix Gallery September/October 2020

Cecilia’s pictures are strictly held in black and white. They show erotic scenes mainly related to BDSM yet very stylish and not at all explicit. In her pictures Cecilia plays with light and shadow to highlight just parts. You can spin your own story around the scenes – highly erotic.

Megan Prumier’s room on the 2nd floor features her own art and some other artists like Bamboo Barnes, ariel Brearly and Del May.

Megan Prumier and other artists at DixMix Gallery September/October 2020

In the center of Megan Prumier’s room on the 2nd floor you find a virtine with an animated dancing figure. I did recognize it immediately as one of Theda Tammas dancers. I saw them at La Maison d’Aneli this summer (read here). Another scene of Theda Tammas is displayed in the center of DixMix Source own room on the 2nd floor. DixMix makes his exhibits on mesh linen clothes. This provides a 3D effect that I never saw before so far, very intriguing.

DixMix Source at DixMix Gallery September/October 2020

Theda Tammas will have an exhibition at DixMix Gallery, opening September 26th, in a seperate skybox called “Womb”. The teleporter is right where you land at the gallery but it is not yet opened.

That’s all about the new DixMix Gallery. It has become a longer entry and I shortened it already quite a lot. There is more information available on the website of the DixMix Gallery.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it and thank you Violet for the hint and the information folder. I enjoyed my first visit to the new DixMix Gallery.

Simploring 2020 (57) Kiyori

After my visit to Voodoo Land (read here) I had a nice chat with Megan Prumier, one of those who had built Voodoo Land. Megan hinted that I should visit Kiyori, another city she was involved in building and that had just opened in early August. I went to Kiyori on Monday, August 10th.

Kiyori is an immersive nightlife location based off of various Asian influences. It is a full adult region and has a lot to offer. Kiyori is owned by Jasmine Kiyori. It was buildt by Megan Prumier, Sofie (Sofie Janic) and Jasmine Kiyori.

The landing is at a subway station and it doesnt take long until you notice that you’re in an adult environment. On my way upstairs to town I came across a vending machine for dildos and sex toys, the posters at the wall did also indicate that at least this sation is leading up to a red light district.

Impressions of Kiyori (1) – the landing point in a subway station

Once I left the subway I was admist raceways, big billboards, lights – wow. I went into the game room, a place for gaming and I had my first smile looking around inside. I liked in particular the offered female bums for 25 cent *grins*.

Impressions of Kiyori (2) – first views in the city / the game room

After this first adult fun I walked to a park. In the center of it is a restaurant. It is quite well designed and rich of details. If you’re hungry you shouldn’t look at it. The food looks really yummy. The park itself is what you’d expect seeing in a city.

Impressions of Kiyori (3) – the park

Of course there are markets with stands, little restraunts, cafés, bars, food stands, discos and all what you’d expect in a big city. I read on a poster in the subway station what all I could have seen (I didn’t see that all):
“Tantra Gentlemen’s Club, Oriental Motel, Love Hotel, Adult Entertainment Store, Numerous Bars (Gay Bar, BDSM Bars), Red LightRooms, Massage Parlour and Spa, Qinglong Bar, Adult Arcade, Adult Movie Theatre, Sushi Bar”
Quite a list of things to do and to see!

Impressions of Kiyori (4) – bars, restaurants and the Maneki Café

I roamed around getting more impressions. Kiyori is surrounded by a very colourful high-rise building sim surround. The sim surround melts perfectly into all the lights in the streets and is a way better background than I thought on the first glance. Looking into the bars and restaurants is fun as most offer a lot of details.

The largest building occupied by the Tantra Gentlemen’s Club. It is impressive from the outside but also from inside with its purple light. The red light district has several bars (no, I didn’t see the BDSM bar), there’s a brothel where you can pose in one of the windows and I found another pose next to a BDSM raceway. I had fun.

Impressions of Kiyori (5) – Tantra Gentlemen’s Club and other adult entertainment

At Kiyori you can rent a market stall or you can rent appartments. I saw a luxury appartment and two standard flats. So if you like this kind of city environment, have a look at Kiyori. Kiyori is (adult) fun and is a great place to take pictures in this particular environment.

Thank you Jasmine Kiyori for sharing your sim with the public. I hope it will fulfill your expectations and that it becomes a vivide community. Thank you Sofie Janic for building and thank you Megan Prumier for building and for giving me the hint.

Simploring 2020 (52) Voodoo Land

For my simploring tour on Friday, July 17th, I picked “Voodoo Land” from scoop.it SL Destinations. The entry led to a post from Maddy Gynoid “Simtipp: Voodoo Land – (Juli 2020)” (post is in German, Maddy took some great pictures too)

Voodoo Land is a moderate full region owned by Sofie Janic and Monkey Wonder. Vegas (jrvegas) contributed to the design. The sim is home for 2 big stores: The Voodoo Community Mainstore, that sells spolders and security tools for clubs and events, and the Vegas Tattoo mainstore owned by Vєgas (abaracdabra).

Impressions of Voodoo Land (1) – around the landing point

The landmark description refers partly to the Voodoo Maintstore: “A community of people from around the globe. Our platform is a tool to enhance your experience in virtual worlds by improving security, and creating opportunities to gain money and traffic while you have fun. Anti-bot & Sploder systems, Trivia, Dance.

Voodoo Land and Little World – bird eye view and orientation map

Next to the the Voodoo Land full region is a moderate homestead, that is connected my a brige – “Little World”. I didn’t explore it (yet), but it seems to be the playground of Sofie Janic and Vegas. “Always in > Under construction 😛 … by Sofie Janic and Vegas and a big thanks to Megan Prumier \o/”
Megan Prumier is also involved in Voodoo Land, for example the Irish Pub contains objects from her.

Impressions of Voodoo Land (2)

Back to Voodoo Land. The landing leads directly to the Voodoo Mainstore. From there I began simploring. Voodoo Land is – besides the two big stores – a huge modern mega city at night. It is full of illuminated advertisings and has all you’d expect from a megatropolis. Most stores and shops are just facades but in particular bars and entertainment are accessible, just try yourself. I liked in particular the above mentioned Irish pub.

Impressions of Voodoo Land (3) – view on Little World (lower left) / The Irish Pub (upper and lower right)

You will also find lots of graffiti, some are huge and remind more of a big art exhibition *winks*. You find video billboards and raceways, little oasises, a skateboard park and a basketball court. And some little details made me smile. I want to mention the “WcDog’s Hotdog sign”, a sign I never saw before yet in Second Life.

Impressions of Voodoo Land (4)

The whole environment invites for roleplay or is just a great background for taking pictures in an urban night setting. Or you could visit one of the bars with your friends.

Impressions of Voodoo Land (5)

There’s also a video of Voodoo Land, that provides a perfect impression of this mega city.

I had a lot of fun exploring Voodoo Land and taking pictures. I always appreciate when shop owners not just have a store inworld but also gice something back to their clients or to the whole community. Thank you Sofie Janic, Monkey Wonder, Vegas (jrvegas), Vєgas (abaracdabra), Megan Prumier and whoever else was and is involved in realizing Voodoo Land.

Simploring 2019 (97) La Maison d’Aneli in September / October 2019

I got an invite from Aneli Abeyante to the opening of the new joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli on September, 18th. As I knew that I couldn’t attend that day, I visited the exhibition already on Tuesday, Sepembter 17th.

The exhibition presents the art from Eylinea, Olympes Rhode, Desy Magic, Megan Prumier, Akim Alonzo, Jolieelle Parfort and Moki Yuitza

I started my tour through the exhibition with Eylinea’s art. Eylinea is quite new in Second Life, she joined in May 2018, and got in contact to recognized artists who generously transmitted their art to her. Since then she has been exploring with great pleasure the different artistic possibilities of SL: painting, photography, sculpture and even soon tattoo creation. At La Maison d’Aneli she shows some animated 3D paintings and scultures. Unfortuantely you can’t really take a picture as you caputre just one single moment, but then at least the picture is unique.

Eylinea’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

The exhibition part of Olympe (Olympes Rhode) is named “Trip to Normandy: 2019/1944 – RL & SL pictures”. Olympe says about herself: “Passionate by words and images, Second Life has allowed me to give a new dimension to my passions, poetry and photography ….. My photos tell a story. They reflect the emotions within me,  with either happiness or sadness, explosion of joy or dismay, they always are created with the same intense passion.
The exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli shows pictures of a trip to Normandy in 2019 and mixes with some on 1944, when the Normandy was the landing site of the allied troups liberating Europe and was the site of many battles.

Olympe’s art at La Maison d’Aneli / lower right shows one of two sculptures from Mistero Hifeng that are exhibited in the area of Olympe’s corner at La Maison d’Aneli

Desy Magic is a passionate photographer and she has a unique and colourful style in which she processes her pictures and makes them real eye catchers. You can still see the original motif yet the abstract forms or objects added to her picture are a dominant element, intriguing.

Desy’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

Megan Prumier is a multimedia artist and resident in Second Life. Her skills are extended on the field of photography, mostly portraits on modern, minimal and even surreal Scenes. The exhibited pictures at La Maison d’Aneli are in black and white and they are quite dark. And they are shown at a dark corner of La Maision d’Aneli. By this artistic light setting, the women shown in her pictures are highlighted and get a mysterious aura. Amazing what can be done with light.

Megan’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

The art of Akim (Akim Alonzo) is in a seperate room. The floor, the ceiling and the walls are black, green letter, symbols and figures run along all walls and are the only source of light beside the exhibited pictures. This setting fits to the name of this exhibition part at La Maison d’Aneli – “The Matrix”. The pictures are loosely based on the cult movie The Matrix. A metaphor for a world of people trapped in a simulated, virtual reality that has many aspects in common with the Secondlife world.
Akim is a traveller and photographer in Second Life and he owns “The Itakos Art Gallery” and runs a website.

Akim’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

Jolie (Jolieelle Parfort) work in virtual/digital art is a new direction in a long art career. “After finding myself retired I discovered an extremely enjoyable virtual world with my new computer and became immersed in Second Life.  In this world the landscapes and tableaux available seem never ending and various;  there is always a new scene or setting to challenge me and to capture.

Jolie’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

Moki Yuitza is in SL for over 11 years now: “From the beginning I found myself more comfortable working with SL basic prims. With simple, basic shapes, and some manipulation possibilities, I can create almost everything. Although I appreciate the possibilities offered by the meshes, I continue to create exclusively using prim base. In RL I am an architect and in this metaverse I found the possibility to realize my idea of ​​space and my architectural fantasy, as well as to share it with other people.
When you visit her art installation “La SERRE” at La Maison d’Aneli make sure that your set your windlight to midnight, otherwise you’ll be blinded by the light. Moki is inviting us to sit down, to watch the moving and ever changing ojects and light, to mediate and to be drawn into her installation.

Moki’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.
Thank you Aneli for another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. I don’t know how long the current exhibition will last, but I guess that you have at least a month to see it. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.
