Where Have You Been? visits The Temple of the Divine Feminine

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?” we vis­it The Tem­ple of the Divine Fem­i­nine, on SLEA Region 2. It’s the cre­ation of 20 women artists and cre­ators coor­di­nat­ed by KismaK­SR Res­i­dent, and occu­pies a full region  — a very full region — with mes­sages cel­e­brat­ing fem­i­nine pow­er, cre­ativ­i­ty, and voic­es, includ­ing some impor­tant focal issues.

The instal­la­tion is divid­ed into four major themed areas arranged like a med­i­cine wheel. Each area has an entry gallery, a space for invo­ca­tion, and the tem­ple itself. Each of these four areas aligns with the four ele­ments — air, fire, water, and earth — and are laid out along the major axes of the compass.

Monsters, Demons & Chess

Join us on Wednes­days or Sat­ur­days, at noon or 4pm Pacific/SLT, 8pm or mid­night in the UK, for the lat­est episode of our series Where Have You Been? at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic, where we sug­gest places to go and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid.

This time we take a dive into the pos­si­bil­i­ties of AI in art: there’s a gallery exhib­it this month com­posed com­plete­ly of AI Images at Kon­dor Art Cen­ter by artist Monique Beebe: “Mon­sters, Demons, & Chess” and that’s our fea­tured des­ti­na­tion for this episode. This edi­tion airs Novem­ber 16, 19, 23 and 26.

Ancient Journeys

Today, join us on a musi­cal jour­ney across the Ancient World, guid­ed by the ancient and mys­te­ri­ous Piri Reis Map; and look at the use of AI in art at 12 noon/4pm SLT. And tune in for Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity every four hours from 4am Pacific.

On our musi­cal jour­ney, we vis­it Ancient Greece, Rome and beyond to encounter the Sev­en Won­ders of the Ancient World. We redis­cov­er lost Atlantis, the ancient civil­i­sa­tions of South Amer­i­ca, cross the Pacif­ic and even trav­el to Antarc­ti­ca and the Moon.

Where Have You Been? S02E20: SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik dis­cuss the SL Top Haunt­ed Places Tour & Hunt — a unique list of Hal­lowe’en loca­tions and events in Sec­ond Life.

Where Have You Been? S02E19: Rosehaven Caverns

LISTEN NOW! LINK BELOW
In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik vis­it the Rose­haven Cav­erns — a new devel­op­ment that enables you to nav­i­gate around the estate under­ground! The show goes out Sept 28, and Oct 1, 5 and 8, at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT; 8pm and mid­night in the UK.

The sys­tem is grow­ing every day and each of the caves are built by dif­fer­ent denizens of the realm, mak­ing this a huge col­lab­o­ra­tive expe­ri­ence to explore and get lost in.  There’s a sub­way entrance in Lau­danum lead­ing to the Under­ground, a mine shaft out­side a goth­ic cas­tle on the oth­er end of the realm lead­ing into the tun­nels, not to men­tion a hand­ful of secret pirate tun­nels. Each res­i­dent par­tic­i­pat­ing adds their own style and imag­i­na­tion to their design and then con­nects to the nexus.

Where Have You Been S02E18: Duran Duran Universe

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik vis­it the Duran Duran Uni­verse.

Whether Simon, Nick, John and Roger are logged in or not, the four-region Duran Duran Uni­verse is a mar­velous place to explore and hang out. One of the most suc­cess­ful things about the estate is that it real­ly con­veys the ener­gy of the 1980s visu­al­ly — from the Patrick Nagel flag wink­ing at you from the fly­ing micro­phone, to the gigan­tic lip­stick tow­er, to the mud wrestling pit (!), it is just total­ly suf­fused with the vibe of those times.

There are 16 list­ings for the Duran Duran Uni­verse in the Sec­ond Life Des­ti­na­tion Guide, and it has its own sub-head­ing in the des­ti­na­tion menu. And that’s just scratch­ing the sur­face: whether you are explor­ing the Lip­stick Tow­er, the Mediter­ranean Spa, the Tow­er of Hades, the Tea­house or The Love Chapel … There’s just a whole lot to see and explore.

The episode pre­mieres on Sep­tem­ber 14th and runs on Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day at noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time (8pm and mid­night in the UK) until Sep­tem­ber 24.

Where Have You Been S02E17: Susan’s Diary

LISTEN NOW:

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik make a pre-Hal­lowe’en vis­it to “Susan’s Diary”, at Delacruz Park, owned by Ser­gio Delacrus, an Ital­ian builder and pro­gram­mer who works as a free­lance VR Expe­ri­ence cre­ator, 3D mod­el­er and tex­ture artist.

Not only has he cre­at­ed prod­ucts and expe­ri­ences in Sec­ond Life, but he has done a sig­nif­i­cant amount of work in Sansar as well. His expe­ri­ence, “Susan’s Diary”, in Sec­ond Life involves a miss­ing child: to solve the mys­tery of Susan’s dis­ap­pear­ance involves a HUD-based game, hunt­ing for clues, and find­ing the pages of Susan’s diary to unlock the mys­tery of her fate. There’s also an asso­ci­at­ed YouTube chan­nel. It makes for an excel­lent pre-Hal­lowe’en entertainment.

“Susan’s Diary” is part of a larg­er games park with flight rides, roller coast­er, boats, hang glid­ers, bungee jump­ing, a sci-fi area, and a fly­ing drag­on — all free to explore. The tele­port to “Susan’s Diary” in Delacruz Park is right by the main land­ing area.

The episode pre­mieres on August 31st and runs on Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day at noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time (8pm and mid­night in the UK) until Sep­tem­ber 10.

Where Have You Been? S02E16: The Nature Collective

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”  we vis­it The Nature Col­lec­tive — or rather, we vis­it the Col­lec­tive’s head­quar­ters and the work of some of their members.

The Nature Col­lec­tive was cre­at­ed with the goal of cul­ti­vat­ing a com­mu­ni­ty around regions, spaces and projects which share a com­mon focus on nature. It is their hope to fos­ter a move­ment to help peo­ple engage and recon­nect with the won­der and joy of nature, in the vir­tu­al world and beyond.

The Col­lec­tive was the brain­child of Emmalee Ever­gar­den, and she has drawn togeth­er a group of ded­i­cat­ed vol­un­teers who share her com­mit­ment to nature spaces, and who form the vol­un­teer staff of The Collective.

To begin explor­ing the near­ly 100 nature des­ti­na­tions that are part of the Nature Col­lec­tive in Sec­ond Life, just vis­it their head­quar­ters and pick up your Explor­er HUD — and off you go. TNC are also mem­bers of the “For­ev­er Tourist” network.

To learn more, catch this episode, which airs on Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days on Aug 10, 13, 17, 20, 24,  and 27 at 12 noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific (8pm and mid­night in the UK).

Where Have You Been? S02E15: Hello Kitty Tribute

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”  we vis­it the 4- region “Hel­lo Kit­ty” trib­ute theme park on the Astralia regions. Hel­lo Kit­ty is the lit­tle adorable white cat char­ac­ter who is num­bered among the high­est gross­ing media fran­chis­es of all time.

Astralia Cre­ations is a cloth­ing and décor cre­ator in Sec­ond Life, fea­tur­ing a wide vari­ety of prod­ucts, many of which fea­ture a graph­ic style and col­or palette sim­i­lar to the pop­u­lar Japan­ese char­ac­ter Hel­lo Kit­ty and the addi­tion­al char­ac­ters that make up the Hel­lo Kit­ty brand.

Hel­lo Kit­ty is a promi­nent part of the cute­ness cul­ture, or kawaii aes­thet­ic, of Japan­ese pop­u­lar cul­ture which includes enter­tain­ment, cloth­ing, food, toys, per­son­al appear­ance, and man­ner­isms. In Kitty’s world there are at least ten char­ac­ters, includ­ing Kit­ty her­self, and a host of oth­er objects and details in that world’s sig­na­ture sim­ple style.
