Tonight I had just logged in when Annie Brightstar sent me an IM asking if I knew ArtEdLand and a SURL to go with it. How can anyone resist a TP from Annie? Not me for sure 😉
Landing in a dark room, I see the sign announcing the opening of the new art installation of Nexuno Thespian for Saturday, November 16 at 1PM SLT at Eduland.
I wish I could put in words what I felt looking around, first the surprise of a dark room with some fire figures on one side and on the other an amazing sculpture in a mix of ice and fire.
The beauty of the images is striking and it has been a while since I felt the wow factor in Second Life, but little did I know that this was only the beginning.
Nexuno Thespian is known to enjoy himself (and others) colouring the environment, like those of you who saw Dr. Moreau Seaworld at LEA6 this year sure remember, and this installation is one of the best I have seen lately.
Looking around I see this arrow pointing to a painting on the black wall
Walking on the lightning bolts I entered the painting and felt immediately overwhelmed by a wave of heat, figures dancing covered in flames, a strange and involving landscape of fire, keys scattered along the way, a flower up in the air calling “Fly with me”… and far in the distance a key hole. Can it be that the keys show the way to the heart? A heart kept by the moon, beating for the sun? Will you reach the heart of the moon?
This installation, inspired by the song “Sun to Moon” from the musical Miss Saygon, tells a story of an impossible love and the ambience in both rooms (sun and moon) will for sure awake emotions in anyone who visits. I will return on saturday for sure.
PS: Thanks to Myhn who showed me the way to the moon 🙂
