surréaliste cirque

When I was little I wanted to join the circus…. not like…. run away and join the circus (my parents would surely have been invited to come see me) but I just wanted to be IN the circus. I had an adorable Shetland pony with the thickest most amazing flaxen mane that almost hit the ground… I would practice my circus tricks on her every day…. for certainly Ringling Brothers would call any day! Ringling Brothers never called, but I did end up riding on a mounted drill team when I got a little older, retired my pony (since my feet were inches above the ground – at this point I looked more clownish!) and got my first real sized horse.

This picture is attributed to my childhood dreams. Second Life is an amazing vehicle for breathing life into our dreams! That… coupled with the Funny Puppet Fair …. has brought my dream into existence… or into my virtual life anyway! 😛

DeVine Spirit

Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.

Crumpled

Duchess laid motionless on the edge of the surf following a brutal marathon swim that ended at the land of Loki. She felt a presence but was too washed-out to care and again the world went dark.

You Found Me

Gentle arms encircled her body and she was slowly lifted out of the water. A soothing voice entranced her and she awoke in the arms of her hero.

Chapter One: Mermaid Diaries

April 9, 2013 at 10:35 am (Mermaid Diaries, Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events, SecondLife Art) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Sanctuary

Duchess circled the cave twice with a heavy heart and as she reached the opening she couldn’t help but turn back. Sadness crept though her like an ink spot in calm water slowly enveloping her courage.
Beckoned

The rays of sunlight that penetrated the deep waters beckoned her upward. Ahead laid the greatest journey of her long life. With the strength of Zeus in her fins and Aphrodite in her heart, Duchess left the safe sanctuary of her abode.
Surfacing

Slowly she ascended from the depths of the cold dark sea following her heart upward to the oxygen filled world of the finless creatures known to those in the deep as Loki.
Duchess Emerging

Duchess raised her hands to the sun breaking the surf …. her fingers dripped with freedom.

The Neva River Journey

March 23, 2013 at 9:40 pm (Second Life Events, SecondLife Art) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Peace

Neva has opened her sim, Neva River, to the public for ten days to share a very personal landscape that paints a picture of what seems to portray her inner peace. The sim is beautifully constructed with natural textures that float from hills to valleys to rivers and sea. As I walked around the sim feelings of solace and peace enveloped me. It was as if I was able to walk around the world that Neva captures so beautifully in her images and was able to harness her artistic soul for a fleeting glimpse. The feelings that are conjured while viewing her 2 dimensional images have become a 3-D experience…. at least for me. Each new corner hid away another viewer, usually alone, sitting in silence…. taking it all in…becoming one with pixel nature. I totally understood her personal journey. Well done Neva. Bravo.

Neva is hosting a photography contest for images taken at Neva River – information can be found at How Neva Sees It

Tripping over to Ars!

February 6, 2013 at 9:11 pm (SecondLife Art) (, , , , , , , )

Duchess and Gopu

After reading about the mind melting experience of the new “Metamorphosis” art installation by Thoth Jantzen, Gopu and I rallied the troops and we headed to Ars Simulacra to have our virtual minds blow. I mean really…. who wouldn’t run at the chance for some good ole fashioned mind melting? With wine in hand we TP’d to the SIM and awaited the arrival of our good friends, Taz and London, as visions of mushrooms danced in our heads……

Friends

We chose to visit the Matrix first and it ended up being one of my favorite destinations of the night. It seemed everyone saw something different on their screens which was probably attributed to different Windlight settings, but what I saw was shiny gold tubes and a vast universe of colors. It was positively beautiful!

matrix

As we moved around the room I noticed that we seemed to be changing sizes. Taz was so tiny she could have fit in my hand! Guess that would have been a cool shot…. oh well… I was distracted by the colors and the wine…. and the mind melting experience. *smirk

The installation takes place in six separate areas and everyone is equipped with an easy to navigate clickable destination teleporter. The wormy pretzel yoga position the teleporter tosses your avatar into before your departure is worth the trip alone!

Duchess Colors

There are no lack of colors in this wild trip through time and space! Grab some friends and head on over and check out “Metamorphosis” – it’s a trippy trip! The creativity of the installation coupled with wonderful friends will make for a great night!

Rolling in the Deep

March 3, 2011 at 1:04 pm (SecondLife Art, SecondLife Music & Fashion)

Lexi created a video using one of my favorite Adele songs and I wanted to share it here. This video has a very personal story behind it that is sad enough to bring tears to the eyes of the hardened. I’m left wondering what became of this man and if he understands the real pain he caused this very real person. So without further ado, here is Rolling in the Deep, tuneage that makes my heart melt!

And Lexi … your day will come and it will be bigger and more grand!

Love,

Duchess & Gopu
