Claudia222 Jewell : Art Screamer, originally uploaded by rafeejewell.
The ominous glowing yellow bud was tantalizing.
Like a fire about to burst through its skin, the mesh flower glowed like the sun. I was on Art Screamer witnessing a revolution of creations in the virtual world of Second Life. Claudia222 Jewell, a well-known virtual artist known for her mesh creations had installed an entire region of mesh objects.
A fantasy world of florals, moths, mollusks, trees, creatures and pavilions were scattered like a storybook unfolding before me. I walked the region and then I flew. Each spot beckoning me towards a fantastic place of solitude and self-reflection. The place was incredible.
Textures were reptilian. The plants were alive with creatures. I shuddered as I entered some of the plants to be engulfed by the cyber-textures and creepy moths (my abhorrence of moths belongs on the psych couch). Creatures with reptilian heads were moving through the land and water and some were hiding among the pavilions.
I sat on a snail-like creature near the water mollusks taking a ton of photos. I couldn't stop. I wanted to preserve this memory of Claudia's world. This is mesh. And, finally, I know what I need to do.
