The other day I took some time to walk around the annual Raglan Shire Artwalk in Second Life. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend checking it out before it closes on the 29th (that’s Sunday) — there are literally hundreds of art pieces displayed around the Shire, some of which have been created in world, and some of which are uploaded images of paintings and photographs from “real” life. There are even “hedgeboat” rides to take you on a tour through the hedges where the 2-d art is displayed and through the forest where the sculptures are.
A couple of years ago I helped to set it up, but I was so busy working behind the scenes at the time I hardly had a chance to enjoy it. Last year I wasn’t playing at all, so this is the first year I got to stop and smell the waffles, as it were. I decided to make some of my own art by taking pictures of the sculptures displayed in Heron Forest — art within art! It’s so meta!
As with all my Second Life photography, none of these are post-processed in any way. Please click for a larger view; you can click anywhere inside the enlarged photo to go through them slideshow style.
