While taking pictures in the Burning Life-Limbo sim, I met two builders who exemplify one of the things I like best about Second Life: it’s global nature. We come from all over the globe, nearly every country, and speaking a wide array of languages. Without a virtual world such as Second Life, we’d be unlikely ever to meet, but in Second Life we can work together, play together, learn together. It’s an unprecedented truly global community.
The two builders are Penelope Parx, a German who came to Second Life to build, and Ally Aeon, an Italian designer and artist in both her first and second lives and who is using Second Life to learn English. She’s doing a fine job of learning. I’ll cover their builds in a future article. They are in the Burning Life-Nightingale sim, which I haven’t gotten to yet.
Yesterday I wrote about meeting OhMy Shalala riding on the bumble bee she had built. Today I visited her build, which is exactly what you might expect a bee lover to build: a gentle flower rising from the lifeless desert floor, looking like stained glass against the sky. You see it pictured here. It’s in the Burning Life-Limbo sim. In addition to this picture, I have ten more pictures of other builds in the slide show below. It contains pictures from the camps of Athena Rickena, Chimeracool Burner, Fabs Bonetto, Khloe Carter, OhMy Shalala, Pyewacket Bellman, and Vanshon Flow.
You can learn more about Burning Life at its website, burninglife.secondlife.com. The pictures in this article and slideshow were taken in the Burning Life-Limbo, Burning Life-Pyramid, Burning Life-Tungsten, and Burning Life-Zero Mile sims. They are closed now while builders are still constructing their creatings, but you will be able to visit them from October 17-31, 2009.
