A Lovely Chaos - Spencer Museum Of Art

What I really enjoy about Second Life is the overboarding creativity you can encounter. Its really a digital wonderland just waiting to be explored.

One of the places which really deserve the description "wonderland" is the Spencer Museum Of Art by the university of Kansas with their Second Life exhbition. A combination of art and the use of artificial intelligence which really creates something unique and - if you ask me - pushes surreal virtual art to a new level.

The entrance point doesn't offer too much. Just a link to their website and some decorative and columns which add a nice bit of surrealism.

Of course it wont stay only with a "bit"...

This house is sort of "backbone" of a lovely made structure settled somewhere between steampunk and circus themes.

A glance at "Petrovsky Flux"

The predominant installation however is called "Petrovsky Flux", which the creators describe as

"(...) a cluster of devices that grow, assembling themselves from modular units, only to blow apart and rebuild themselves. Each time they rebuild differently so the overall flux is, as the name implies, constantly changing."

Inside the Flux. Its actually quite challenging to stage a shot inside the structure because its indeed constantly changing.

Taking a sheep taxi. Oh and they have flying pigs too ;-)

Eye to eye with an - eye.

Quite relaxing to watch the Flux growing - and breaking apart afterwards :p

For a more mysterious and gloomy (do I have to remind you I am a Drow?) experience I picked "[TOR] - SUNSET - Eggdrop" as skysetting.

I think the similarity to a MD Pod Prison is purely accidentally.

Just a lovely place for musing...

Check it out!
