I’ve been busy in rl the last few days, but I picked up on this place and there were a couple of shots I spotted fairly quickly on a visit to 🙂 BCC. I liked the conveniently placed av dancing in the grass, and the minimal lines and colour in the above. The other shot […]
Modelmaking and virtual worlds
The River Wyvern, a photo by Tizzy Canucci. Goatswood is a representation of a Victorian village in rural England, somewhere in the Midlands, loosely based in appearance on Castle Combe in Wiltshire. It is a role play sim, but visitors can obtain a three day pass at Mortchester ticket office. The landing point is at […]
Two kinds of Photographer
Two kinds of Photographer I’ve done it. I’ve just accepted cash to take photographs in Second Life. This reminded to revisit the Seven Levels of Photographers by Ken Rockwell, which ironically (in other words, there’s some hard truths born out of experience) lists the levels of photographer, as seen by other photographers. It’s long, but it’s […]
The Arrival Revival
The Arrival: 04, a photo by Tizzy Canucci on Flickr Thanks to Ziki Questi for alerting me to this through her blog – but Rose Borchovski’s fantastic installation is now reinstalled at MIC Imagin@rium. I had a wonderful time walking through this earlier in the year. This really is a ‘must see’.
Girl with a Virtual Camera
The view out from Second Life, by Tizzy Canucci, aka Girl with a Virtual Camera. With apologies to Vermeer.
Zenshi: Water and Towers
I have a liking for this clean modernist approach. I could never aspire to such tidy cleanness, or indeed to anything so conspicuously expensive, in real life. Zenshi is part private residential (thanks to Zzoie Zee for allowing me access), part swish shops. The rural is about desire and romance for many people, but as […]
CGI killing photography? No, not really.
There was a story recently on Wired by Joseph Flaherty about CGI which I picked up on via Michael Zhang on Petalpixel, whose headline read “Extremely Realistic Computer Generated Imagery is Killing Photography Jobs“. Maybe those of us who have had more to do with computers realised a long time ago that those smart boxes […]
Ionic Spell : Broken Barrier
Ionic Spell : Broken Barrier, a photo by Tizzy Canucci on Flickr Things come and things go. And in Second Life, there is constant change. This is a sim I particularly liked, but the last time I teleported there I ended up at the bottom of a watery ditch. As you do. This sim was […]
Kowloon Walled City
It’s a long time since I’ve been to Kowloon, and uncharacteristically for Second Life, it doesn’t seem to have to changed much. It’s based on a historic place, Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong, which has now been demolished. The landing point is just outside the main gate, which opens onto the brightest and widest […]
Imogen and the Pigeons
Bryn Oh’s latest art installation in Second Life is Imogen and the Pigeons at Immersiva. As fascinating as ever, it is a journey through a story in virtual space. It took me two visits to get these shots… I was just too fascinated by it the first time. I needed to pick up a slurl, […]
