First, to mark the Equinox - the Spring Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere - we visited a beautiful exhibition on Ignis Fatuus, curated by Wizardoz Chrome and Aime Socrates.
|Wizardoz Chrome, the curator of this beautiful collection|
The pleasingly polyglottal theme of the collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings is "Art et Life" and paintings are enriched by Wiz's 3D effects using props and cutouts in the arcadian environs of the Guinguette dance floor. Not all the pictures date from quite so long ago as the turn of the last century...
|Painter and friend of Ignis Fatuus Grid, Prodyck Theas|
Alya VonZ: ah paintings of Prodyck, have seen some of them:)
|Thai Low explores the quiet regions of the sim|

Phred: reminds me of Allo Allo
Lux.Tergeste: Very excited
Loru.Destiny:I lost my husband... he found the wine cellar I think
alex54 Salamander: haha
Brian: Classiques d'accordéon français
Lucy Afarensis: This is one of the jewels of the metaverse
Aime Socrates: we made second Layer on this sim, this is the third sim we managed this way, Max made the main build, and we add content, don't hesitate to sit everywhere to feel the Guinguette atmosphere.
Aime Socrates: the circus.... i love the way the people escaped the paintings, and even some made the reverse..entered
Phred: i must try entering the pictures
Lux.Tergeste: I'm also impressed by the power of the build
George Equus: Viewed the Swan Lake video... if one could move like that!
Lux.Tergeste: Yes George. People can do impressive things here in virtual worlds
Wizardoz.Chrome: It's not exactly an art show,rather, we have inserted the artworks in an open air setting, which is the nature of Impressionism
George.Equus: ballerinas are exceptional - the animations ! ...the whole region is a marvel really
Wizardoz Chrome: great work of Aime on NPC
Thirza Ember: so, will this Impressionist art show on Guinguette remain for a long time, Aime?
Aime Socrates: you mean if the sim will survive? of course! this sim will enter my school next year as an example of cultural building
Lux.Tergeste: this is great, Aime!
Thirza Ember: yes, it's an amazing body of work
Lux.Tergeste: Congratulations! It is not easy to convince one's administrators
Aime Socrates: this time i was lucky... Wizardoz made the work :) i just danced all around
It wasn't long before George found the controls and sett off the fireworks, just as twilight fell over the region.... just so pretty
Caro.Fayray: a wonderful sim and for me a great experience as I usually miss Safari:)
|Larysa brings a touch of contemporary art to the region|
And then, it was time to head to OSGrid for our second destination.
Larysa Firehawk aka Fabok is a huge Antarctica fan. If you cam up high enough on the region Ambiant Antarctica, you'll see the ground is in the shape of that most majestic and mysterious continent.
We were lucky enough to have with us the lovely Caro Fayray, the artist responsible for the giant tree at the center of this installation...
do not forget to click on the green fuzzy bits on the tree, they are fun animations.
Thai's system is called ePack and it uses the modInvoke () function to make life a little easier. Want to know more? Visit Thai on Endivatomic grid!
|On the edge of the continent|
Phred an iceberg question, and we went off to see the edge of the continent
Larysa Firehawk: this is also an ice shelf and it is a little bit like the Larson C iceshelf. where the Behemoth broke off - i call it that, the last big iceberg that broke off - and maybe this sort of dimple here is like the size of Behemoth. It was all over the news like a rash. The iceberg seems really big, but compared to the size of Antarctica, it's tiny.
Larysa has been invited to participate with this region in the Centre for Fine Print Research event in Santander, called IMPACT which stands for 'International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking, Artists, Concepts and Techniques'.
|'Shroom sitting, listening to all the cool sounds|
Matilda Charron: cute and creative here
Aime.Socrates: just camming out the sea, this is cool... the real pinguins
Lucy Afarensis: glad that I wore boots
Phred: very musical safari today
