Ghostville, A More Personal View of Cica in Second Life
For most of us, our initial encounter with the work of Cica Ghost occurred when we saw her exhibit Cica↑ last September at LEA↑. She followed that up with Rust↑ and, if you were like me, you fell even more in love with her style and her creations.
Cica’s third exhibit, called Ghostville↑, is another full sim, immersive, and glorious build hosted by those amazing women at Per4mance MetaLES↑. You’ll find her signature techniques and that sense of child-like wonder we experienced at the previous two works. This time, though, I saw a difference.
It might just be a product of my sleep-fogged brain, but I found this installation to be more personal. There is a significant amount of Cica herself this time – and I don’t just mean literally, although you’ll find that to be the case. I sense more of her emotionally in these small vignettes. This makes Ghostville↑ the most powerful of her three exhibits – at least to me.
I had a very hard time choosing 5 shots for this post – only because there is so much to see. I ran into some other bloggers while I was there so I know you’ll see more images (Ziki’s photos↑ from yesterday announced the opening for me and ensured that I’d rush to get there myself). What you should plan to do is go visit yourself. This is a winner! :)
