I hadn’t done a Friday Find in a while and I really wanted to visit and share with you guys One Tree Hill by Karma Avedon. One Tree Hill is on LEA7, which is a core sim and will be up and available until August 31st, 2017. It is also VR goggle friendly.
The project is based entirely on the words and lyrics from U2’s album, The Joshua Tree. Although released 30 years ago, it is incredibly relevant to modern times. Karma says she didn’t want this to be a political project but I feel the project depicts so much of the current political atmosphere from the billboards to the Mothers of the Disappeared scene that tries to address the current refugee crisis in Syria.
I was incredibly moved by Karma’s project and the thought process that went into the scenes. I took a few pictures and also made a video to show how powerful it is and to encourage you all to visit.
Since tomorrow is July 1st and I’m leaving in about a week for vacation, I thought I’d do a weekly roundup to share some of the events that will go on during the month of July to keep you busy while I’m gone.
Subscription Boxes – Don’t forget to check out my subscription boxes post and pick up your desired boxes before their release dates. Powder Pack LeLutka comes out tomorrow!
CTRL-SHIFT-H – The talented Whiskey Monday started a very interesting blog a few months ago that I have been meaning to tell you guys about. CTRL-SHIFT-H features homes of different Second Life residents and gives us a little look into their Second Lives and how they live them. I find it so fascinating and her photography is always enchanting. You can also submit your own home to be featured.
Am I pretty or ugly? – This is a face beauty analysis test which people were sharing on plurk so I thought I’d give it a try with my avatar and it said I’m 69% pretty. Give it a try with your avatar and let me know what you get!
