Great Second Life Destinations: SALT by Eliza Wierwight at LEA 7



Eliza Wierwight's "salt"  art installation up for viewing at LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) 7 invites the viewer to view the immersive work  "as experiencing-dining from a pre-set menu of somewhat unpalatable stories & truths". A more detailed statement on salt can be found on her mission statement on the LEA blog link given below. This is a gorgeous and amazingly well designed work that is one of the highlights on the LEA series of exhibits this calendar year and should be mandatory viewing for anyone who appreciates great virtual art.

All photography was taken with the recommended light settings used at the destinations in ultra environmental light and processed with a pale gold reflex film effect to bring out three dimensional natural elements of the constructive elements.

Great Second Life Destinations: Cape Florida Lighthouse and State Park


Cape Florida Lighthouse and State Park is a highly realistic virtualization of the nearly 200 year old lighthouse in Miamis Bill Bagg's State Park, which is located on the south side of famous Key Biscayne. The Second Life destination really struck men as one of the most true to scale and realistic, and frankly most relaxing depictions of the native Florida  Coast --- the parts that are a bit away from such crowded and trendy areas such as Key West, or South Beach. but still well tended and very picturesque.



Key Biscayne Island where Cape Florida is Located, San Marco and Sanibel Island on the West Coast, and Delray Beach in Palm Beach County and Singer Island a bit north come to mind as well tended and private areas with great food and levels of serves that can march the images set here.
