Bryn Oh and the Rabbicorn

Do you know what a Rabbicorn is? No? Don’t worry – it’s a fantasy animal thought up by the artist Bryn Oh, part rabbit, part unicorn. And today, Friday, she opens an exhibition at the IBM3 sim telling a story about this wonderful creature.

The story is being told in tableaus that you teleport between. Bettina Tizzy has said it’s like walking through a 3d picture book, and that is so true.

As for so much else of Bryn’s work, the story of the Rabbicorn is a sad and beautiful one, about loss, not belonging and being different, but it’s also told with a warm sense of humour.

The different tableaus might be the best work Bryn has done so far. Each a room, they’re beautifully lit, worked out with great attention to detail, there are some surprises here and there, and of course poems lying around telling you the story.

In fact, the atmosphere is so special that Bryn has decided no more than five people can be inside the exhibition at once. It’s easy to understand why: Standing in a laggy crowd would bring down the experience significantly. So if you don’t make it in on your first try, try again.

Here is Bryn describing the exhibition in her own words:

«Quite some time ago I thought up a character called the Rabbicorn. Part rabbit part unicorn. I built up this whole story in my mind about where she came from and how. I sketched it out wrote down the story and then I promptly put it on the shelf and made the Gashlycrumb Tinies build for Arcspace.

The Rabbicorn is connected to a variety of the characters I make, but to me she is one of my favorites. I had always planned on making this story in Second Life but I never had the space to do it properly. Immersiva is the world she lives in but to tell her story there would require me to delete most everything. So I was quite happy when IBM approached me to use one of their full sims for a project, and I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for.»

Coming soon

The generous Four Yip has been so kind as to let me borrow a piece of land from her. There, I’ve built a small shack, and it’ll soon be filled with some of the houses and other things I’ve made. More information will follow when everything gets a bit more organized.

Some fine furniture at Construct

One of my best friends in Second Life, Cat Carfagno, is not only a very nice person – she’s also a brilliant designer of furniture and flowers and plants. When we met, she had a few small shops, but they sadly disappeared due to this and that.

But now I’m happy to say that CC has got a big shop of her own, and it’s definitely the place if you’re looking for some high class couches, chairs, tables, beach furniture, plants, flowers, fruit, and, um, a sausage. CC’s trademark is simplicity paired with elegance and taste.

Do yourself a favour, and visit Construct on this slurl. Wonderful for both shopping and getting inspired.

Three little birds

I went to the shop Happy Mood here the other day to buy some birds I’d seen at another sim – how cute they are ^_^ They’re neither expensive nor primmy, and they’re even copy, which means you can have a whole flock of birds on your porch if you’d like. I go for three, though, as Bob Marley did. And they chirp!

Another vernissage

I don’t really intend this blog to only be about me and my photo exhibitions, but: I really want to say a heartfelt thanks to everyone that came to Camera Obscura last night and made it yet another fun vernissage. It really wouldn’t be the same to host an opening if no one came.

At the picture above, yours truly is speaking to one of her heroes (but also friends), the SL architect DB Bailey. Eva, Loup, Cienega, Gina, Tina, Seik, Milla, Roxelo, Nena, Pompelle, Mescaline, Velazquez, Josina, and everyone I met for the first time: So great seeing you all :-)

Now we’ve finally managed to set a date for my exhibition at Camera Obscura in Diabolus – it will be today. At 1pm slt, or 22:00 cet, to be precise. I’ll be there, so it’d be fun if you came along as well. There will be chilled champagne for everyone, and hopefully some good music and company as well.

New exhibition – soon

My friend MillaMilla Noel has invited me to exhibit pictures at her gallery Camera Obscura in Diabolus. I’ve given her 22 pictures. Only problem now, is that my user has such a hectic schedule these days in her first life that it’s difficult for me to settle an opening date – but I’m sure we’ll find one eventually.

Meanwhile, you can have a look at the photographs in this catalogue that the gallery has made. (Yeah, they’ve spelled my name wrong, but what the heck. It’s fun.)
