Becoming & Birds in Second Life

Becoming by Meilo Minotaur & Capcat Ragu (moderate)

It is time once again to revisit La Città Perduta (The Lost Town), where the locals invite artists to populate their community with the wild and wonderful. AKILAE Gant and Sivi Kelberry curate the art in their Town and they have a superb track record.

The current exhibit is Becoming by Meilo Minotaur and Capcat Ragu.

When I think of these two artists it is in the context of avatars; the nature of avatars as an act of self, avatars as art, as expressions of inner demons or angels, as our constructs from whatever it is that is driving us or pushing us. Their works are also fun and sometimes bizarre.

I love them!

If you’ve ever visited their sim Porto then you know they also create gorgeous, ethereal landscapes. Their installation here adds that dimension to the streets and buildings of La Città Perduta.

The theme, you will quickly realize, involves birds. Lots of birds. The avatars you’ll find include a pigeon in a bowler hat who is riding a skate board and wouldn’t sit for a portrait.

As you explore the Town and the exhibit, be aware that there are supposed to be 4 Easter Eggs – if you find them you’ll acquire free avatars. The clue is “Good hunting and remember, there is not the hens that lay eggs … :)”

I found none of them – which is probably because I suck big time at hunts and because I was distracted. You see there’s this woman, who is a tree, and she burps hummingbirds.

Visit Becoming … it’s fabulous!
