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.
