Like many landscaping shops, Forest Floor is a wonderfully photogenic place (SLurl) with many spots for you to pose your avatar with great results. There are beautfiful fields of flowers, stragecially placed furniture, and a fabulous horizon line.
But the best picture opportunities are at ground level (SLurl) where you’ll find a hyper-realistic landscape dotted with with mystical accents and some of the best natural water features in all Second Life. Whether you use the standard sky settings or fiddle with Windlight as I did for these pictures, you can produce wonderful pictures with minimal effort.
The water features are exceptionally nice and if you trace the stream from bay to source you’ll see that the landscaper understands how real life waterways form.
Every now and then you’ll find some mystical elements among the hyper-real. The limited placements make the fantastic more plausible without overwhelming. Of course, almost everything you see at ground level is for sale in the shop.
For some reason my big pixy avie finds her way to Forest Floor nearly every time she is logged in to our world. All my avies have a landmark, of course, and visit now and then, but not with the frequency of Zyx. Often I’ll park her in a pretty spot (they are all over) and leave her on the screen like living wallpaper while I do things on my iPad or other non-computer tasks that RL demands. Or anytime I need to relax, Forest Floor is a top choice to simply stroll through, ride one of the available horses, or even just fly about to absorb the beauty.
Similar Objects by Artie Vierkant is an extensive website of images culled from the internet. The web based work uses Google’s ‘search by image’ function to collate images which are visually similar. The softwares algorithmic detection groups together objects that have similarities due to their pictorial composition.
"I think this kind of virtual-physical relationship in particular interests me, the degree of augmentation or representation that succeeds in actually changing how we think about or interact with an object. This way we can concentrate on building layers of infrastructure that effectively create new spaces."
The identity of a company, specially a web service, depends too much of its website layout. We don’t have to see logos or typography in order to indetify the company, sometimes just we need colors and position. Thats why I merge the website layout with the artistic movement: De stijl.
La identidad de una empresa especialmente de un servicio de internet, depende bastante del layout de su página web. No tenemos que ver logos o letras para identificar la empresa, sólo colores y la posición en la que se encuentran. Por eso quise combinar el layout de páginas web con el movimiento de arte De Stijl.
