This exhibit shows an overview of the places The BluShock Coalition have gone and the planets they have created. They currently live on a huge Asteroid that has a way to fold space and makes them able to visit anywhere in (any) universe. As a Part of the Blushock Coaition with Fazzy Constantine and his SL son Noah and a number of old and new crew members she’s spent time in space, creating worlds and having adventures between the stars and on away missions on planets.
BluShock is a Mass Effect inspired Roleplaying group and world, in the digital and virtual world, of Second Life. To earn more visit their website or their group in Sl. Blushock coalition also has a Flickr group with many photos of the worlds thy have built.
Ceakay’s exhibit shows much of the space adventures of Blushock all in her creative style. True to Ck’s style this exhibit is inspiring and engaging with a warmth felt by the viewer. The warmth of a draw .. like seducing you to find out more. Ck has been in Second Life since 2007. I noticed her playing with textures in her photos back in 2013.
Ck is an Artist I always want to see what she is doing her work is so inspiring and fun! It has been interesting to see Ceakay’s artistic growth over the years. Her Photography formally exhibited in 2014 at Raglanshire Art Walk, Transylvania Sim and Commune Utopia. In 2015 Ck opend her own CKB Art Gallery and a beautiful sim Mistwood Isle. 2015 through 2016 saw her exhibiting at many shows including The Living Room,The Windlight Gallery, Burning. Sim and Art at the Park, Holly Kai. In 2016 she got wild and combined her photography skills with 3d art and story telling creating “A Watercolor Wander” at LEA the story is here on Ceakayballyhoo (Ck’s blog) and reviewed by Inara Pey here. This style of art was new and quite a wonderful trip to visit. She followed this sim wide exhibit with ‘The Forest Beyond’ in 2017 The success of the wonderfully child like fantasy builds that I/we all Loved led Ck to do a collaboration build with Cyebel Moon. “- ‘Niamh’s Journey of Dreams’ opened April 2017.
I found this video on you tube and posting it so you can see how creative this all is!
Ck Loved collaborating and her next build was with Silas Merlin “‘The Haze” you can see photos and read abut it here on a Million Happy endings. Ceakay finished 2018 with her watery build “Seacree Reef”. This build may have been the inspiration for her current “Ck’s Smugglers cove” an amazing. addition to Campbell Coast. Ck has a beautiful a smaller plot, CK’s Corner. It is open to the public to explore. A gallery, odes to art installations and roleplay sims are all accessed from there. (use the signpost to move around). Here is a teleport to Ck’s Corner. From hr you can tp to here small installations and her Gallery at Campbell Coast’s Artists Village.
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).
High on a snow covered mountain sits Hyperborea Art Gallery, Dani fenrizwolf is the owner and artist.
The air and sky are thick with mist and the land below is all covered in snow
Could this be the southern border of Hyperborea.
Guarded by the bitterly cold peaks of the impassable mountains. Where the North Wind lives, whose chill breath brought winter to the lands below. Its peaks inhabited by gold-guarding Griffins.Beneath the snow covered southern slopes lay a desolate land cursed with eternal winter.
You can see the light from a lantern on the Gallery porch, a cozy Log Cabin. You walk towards it stumbling across and into the door making a snowy mess on the floor. Thankfully you see the hearth and warm your hands by the fire. Thankful for this sliver of warmth in this desolate snow covered realm.
Warmed now you begin to look around.Your eyes rest on an oil painting and another, you find yourself enthralled with the depth of feeling in them
First You see 2 faces Self portraits done in oil one titled “Panic attack” and one titled “Anxiety” both fiercely expressing their strong emotions through Dani’s brush strokes.
Next, I was struck by the beauty of “Kotisaari” and after finding Dani’s Flickr I realized it is her beautiful Island and the painting is not for sale.
The rest well I am not going to describe since I think you should go visit this very different heart touching Gallery space.
“Nordic art gallery, oil paintings inspired in the nordic way of life.Poetically expressing the melancholic lyricism of existence..
The worship of nature, the struggles of everyday life.”
Dani “Lives on her island when not adventuring in the sea…” and makes beautiful youTube Machinima of sailing. click the video to go to her you tube channel.
You can find many legends and info about Hyperborea be it myth or reality. Here is a Ancient north pole map of mythical lands including the central continent of Hyperborea. map depicted in 1564-1570 ish by Abraham Ortelius .
Two of these are The SLEA Bridge Project, a way of bringing all art venues together in one place. Rosi is who deals with these. Lately I have been having a lot of fun using the bridge as a jumping spot to explore galleries I have not been to before.
Currently SLEA has many exhibits and Art Builds the best way to see them is to just go because that way you will see many other exhibits art and things going on.
Like the sandbox cleared very Friday and currently delt with by Eupalinos Ugajin. To use the sandbox you must join the SLEA Art Sandbox group. Keep your eye out for wonderful freebies at the sandbox currently Eupalinos has put out Cherry Manga’s amazing art for free. It you do not have a Cherry Manga in your Art collection you are missing out her work is amazing and poignant. Here is a teleport.
Suzen is amazing! She is a wild woman at heart and her “The Dream Hangover”feels like walking into the psychedelic visions of her mind. I first met Suzen in 2009 she was playing at Surfside Hideaway (The longest continuous live music venue in sl). Suzen alone with her voice and guitar can take you on a bluesy trip you will LOVE! Her talent for making colors fly out of a guitar and into your mind is a wonderful experience that I highly reccomend!.
Suzen has been exhibiting her Art awhile too and it is equally amazing. She uses color to tell stories and does it with her multifaceted mewl toned talent. Painting the pictures in her wild way sliding your mind in the direction she is thinking. rarely is it direct and always it is a pleasure to see. Creativity is her therapy and it is awe worthy. This particular build is a whole region,”The Dream Hangover” is a great space to lose yourself awhile look listen and be amazed.
