The artistry of Melina Sue in Second Life

Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

NovaOwl Sky Gallery: Melina Sue, June 2022

Now open through until Sunday, July 31st, 2022 is the most captivating exhibition of mixed media art it has been my delight to visit. Hosted within the Sky Gallery at NovaOwl, operated by Uli Jansma, Ceakay Ballyhoo & Owl Dragonash, the exhibition features the work of Melina Sue (MelinaSue1).

Set across two levels within the skybox is a selection of art that spans the digital divide, offering images, drawings and paintings from the physical world, together with avatar studies and wildlife pictures captured from within Second Life that is collectively utterly engaging in its richness and diversity.

A long-time resident of Second Life (having originally joined in 2009), Melina Sue describes herself as “a multi-discipline, mixed media artist”, a description that fall far short of her creativity, her eye for composition, colour, narrative, pose and lighting, and her innate ability to capture…

NovaOwl Gallery: Skip Shaheli, April 2022

NovaOwl is a new gallery space operated by ULi Jansma, Ceakay Ballyhoo & Owl Dragonash within the Mainland community of Novatron on the southern side of Corsica. It opened at the start of April 2022 with an exhibition of art by Skip Staheli, that runs through until late June 2022.

As a part of a broader community, the gallery presents a waterfront location, complete with local boat moorings, an outdoor events area with café bar, opportunities to participate in a fishing contest to music every Monday at noon SLT, while a teleport centre alongside the landing point offers connections to other point of interest on the southern side of the continent.

Art in Second Life 2022 (23) La Maison d’Aneli March 2022

Diomita and Jenny Maurer's Blog

On Wednesday, March 2nd, the latest exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli has been opened. It features the art of Ceakay Ballyhoo, DekabristMouse, Junanuj, Tarozaemon Rossini, Vita Theas, Isabel Hermano and Antoronta.
I visited several times in the days before the offical opening.

Vita Theas used her skybox at La Maison d’Aneli for a space installation on a lower level and for displaying her pictures on the ground and upper level. The space level shows several celestial bodies. I recognized the milkstreet, asteroids and the planet earth. A figure is using the earth to ride on it like on a cannonball.
In the upper level the walls are used to display Vitao Theas’ pictures. There are stairs leading up to 2 places where you can sit and watch from there. Another stair leads to a woman with a dog who looks out of a window. And the pictures? A broad variety…

Corsica South Coasters is a mainland community that shares a love of creativity, art, music, leisure and  beautiful surroundings connecting land and people. It is accessible for anyone to enjoy, with access to the Linden Road and the Waterways, all the way to Blake Sea and beyond. Travelers can arrive or continue their journey by land, sea or air (seaplane/helicopter only) thanks to the direct connection to Circuit La Corse, the nearby docks at Emyniad Harbor, Novatron Port and Port Edge Walker.

I am so happy to be working with people who share this vision and want to live and play in a beautiful landscape. Sad to see Campbell Coast go but we tried so hard to keep it going and well sometimes things change and you let go of what no longer serves you and keep what…

Boarding the USS Sleipnir in Second Life

Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

USS Sleipnir and Planet Freya, November 2021 – click any image for full size

Personal log Stardate: 2551.11.10.
After an enforced break at Jasper Point on Idun, and the loss of Resilient Station and its host asteroid a major source of speculation and rumour, it was a relief to receive Commander Constantine’s invitation to take an intra-system jump ship to from the Point to the resource-right Freya, and the orbit of the coalitions newest jewel, the USS Sheipnir. Not only had the rumour mill started to get to me, I was keen to see what would be our new home and an opportunity to broaden our exploration of the galaxy, even though the Commander had made it clear elements of the ship were still under construction…

OK, so I’m not actually a part of the Blushock role-play group, but their adventures have been something I’ve been documenting (in part) in…

CK’s space adventures in Second Life

Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

Hoot Suite Gallery: Blushock Space Adventures

Earlier this year, and initially at the suggestion of CK (Ceakay Ballyhoo), I visited Planet Idun, a role-play / photography region developed by Fazzy Constantine (Faisel Constantine) and the Blushock role-play team, which includes CK as a member. I found it an engaging visit, as I noted in An Away Team Mission to Planet Idun in Second Life).

That visit gave me the chance to familiarise myself with the Blushock team, their backstories and role-play and the future mythology they’ve built up around their activities. It’s an acquaintanceship I was able to extend in April, when I paid a further visit to the group’s region to tour their latest build, Resilient Station, which in their developing story has become the team’s new base of operations (see: Docking at Resilient Station in Second Life).

Jasper Point on Planet Idun

After leaving Vanargand, the ice and snow planet, the heart of Blucore took a sabbatical. But we’re back!

The Blushock Coalition proudly presents the new sim Jasper Point, on planet Idun. It is a sci fi sim but located in a jungle/rain forest area.

There is a lot to see on many different levels. The base is high in the mountains, as is the Idun Roof Bar, the highest bar on the planet! It has drinks from all over the universe, some you will not find anywhere else (yet).

Idun Roof Bar

There is a river running through that you can explore by kayak, a beach to watch the sunset at and paths and hidden things for you to find.

Kayak at the Waterfall
Sunset at the Beach
Idun Base
Idun River

The sim is open to the public with a grand opening at 11 AM SLT on Saturday the 23rd of January 2021.

Feel free to drop by anytime, to explore, hang out, cuddle or to use the sim as a planet to visit in an RP situation. There is a stargate and a connection to the Moonbase on the sim.

Art in Second Life 2021 (6) Artists’ Village at Campbell Coast

Diomita and Jenny Maurer's Blog

When I scrolled through scoop.it SL Destinations on Monday, January 4th, I came across an entry which led to a post from Inara Pey “A new home for an Artists’ Village – Campbell Coast“.

I read the post and had to have a look myself.
The Artists’ Village at Campbell Coast is operated by BJoyful and Doc Rast (rasterscan) and curated by Owl Dragonash. As the name implies it is a village (located on a sky platform) that offers 42 studio spaces in a really nice environment. Inara wrote in her post (January 3rd):
29 of the 42 studio are already occupied or reserved by the following artists: Dhyezl, Etamae, Jaz, Gidgy Adagio, Shakti Adored, Caly Applewhyte, Whimsical Aristocrat, Ceekay Ballyhoo, Michiel Bechir, Thomaz Blackburn, Giovanna Cerise, Rey Charles, Owl Dragonash, Apple Fall, Johannes Huntsman, Uli Jansma, Suzen Juel, Lena Kiopak, Anouk Lafavre, Dimivan Ludwig, Radagast Malaprop…

A new home for an Artists’ Village in Second Life

A great article about a great new Artists Community!

Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

Campbell Coast, January 2021

Back in September 2020, I wrote about the Artists’ Village at Campbell Coast, operated by BJoyful and Doc Rast (rasterscan) and curated by Owl Dragonash.  Since that time, both Campbell Coast and the Village has relocated, the latter now forming a sky platform over the region.

Work recently completed on the relocation, which sees Campbell Coast offer a similar facility as found at the Phoenix Artists Collaboration – a collection of study-style spaces available to artists (group membership required), with up to 110 LI available per artist.

The studios are presented in town house style units with two floors of exhibition space (artists will need to install their own teleport systems between floors), with the studios laid out in blocks separated by cobbled streets and open spaces, complete with an open-air bar / event space at the southern end of the village.

Campbell Coast, January…
