Scene of the Day: Newton’s Cenotaph

Newton's Cenotaph 16 August 2017

Today’s Scene of the Day is from the experience called Newton’s Cenotaph, created by Mencius Watts of Ball State University’s IDIA Lab. It is the virtual model of a memorial to the scientist Sir Isaac Newton which was never built in the real world.

Pick of the Day: Felsenmeer

I first visited Felsenmeer on an Atlas Hopping tour with Draxtor Despres and Strawberry Singh two weeks ago. This experience was created by the Second Life and Sansar artist Silas Merlin, who in real life is Jean-François Le Saint.

The lighting in Sansar is so wonderful, and Silas makes full use of it in his experience.

Silas has installed his sculptures all around the rocky landscape. Near the spawn point, there is a large house where he displays his circus artworks.

In particular, I noticed a charming, tiny clown balancing his tophat on his nose.

Then yesterday, while wandering around through the art exhibit Transformations at the University of Western Australia sims in Second Life, I came across this wonderful video by Glasz Decuir that shows Silas’ creative process at work while creating this tiny clown statue:

Felsenmeer is a truly inspiring experience and I would encourage you to come in-world and take a look! You can also buy Silas Merlin’s artworks on the Sansar Store to place in your own experiences.

Please Don’t Be a Troll

I have had to kick James O’Reilly out of the new Sansar Newsblog community over on Google+, block him on Google+, and mute him on Google+, for constantly posting the same “Don’t be a fool” Facebook post over and over and over again on my posts there about Sansar. Then he joined the Google+ Sansar Newsblog community and started doing the same thing there, and I’m fed up and I’ve had enough!

This is what he keeps posting: “Don’t be a Fool > Try Sansar’s VR Competitors – 12 and counting”: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sansar.sl2.education.training/permalink/1110157085752322/

Please don’t be a troll! Posting this link once is okay; posting it over and over and over again is just spamming.
