Long time no blogging.
This is a life report from the opening of Jachmes Masala’s new Egyption exhibition that will introduce you to the finds at Gizah. No screenshots yet, sorry, I am on a crappy connectioon and a crappy machine atm, so I can’t take any screenshorts. I will supply some later.
The exhibition is quite [...]

SIETAR Intercultural Learning Space

Montag, Juli 28th, 2008

I felt like the proverbial kid in a candy shop when I found this site featured on the SL showcase. During the work on my thesis about the potential use of Second Life for intercultural education I was sadened by all the potential I saw - and the few and often struggeling applications. So [...]

Just Beautiful

Mittwoch, Juli 9th, 2008

I found this sim and decided to share the link with you, for it is simply BEAUTIFUL. The forrest feel like it is enchanted and you can choose between fresh, deep greens to your left and a the rich, deep autum colors to your right. So next time someone asks me what you can have [...]

My Own Gallery

Sonntag, März 30th, 2008

I’m back after focussing more on other activities for a while. I now set up my own gallery. Not so much because this is what I always wanted, but more as some kind of birthday gift for a friend. So far she hosts her artwork at Deviant Art ( and it was just so tempting [...]

Surreal Beauty

Donnerstag, November 29th, 2007

With Windlight coming back my SL snapshots got a more realistic, but also more surrelatistic touch. I couldn’t help to feel like I walked right into a picture of DalĂ­ when I logged in to be greeted by twilight in the Gypsy Moon sim and just had to share this with you.


A Trip into Music

Samstag, Oktober 20th, 2007

Pangaea is all about music.
The currently featured artist is Herbie Hancock, if you visit Pangaea until early December you should check out the exhibition in the townhall and the video available at the theater. Yes, it is also a shameless advertisement for his latest album. But who cares in the end? The man is a [...]

Education place of the day: WWF Conservation Island

The WWF recently opened its own island in SL and I decided to pay it a visit. The island is extremely beautiful and it is simply fun to explore. There is a very nice forest, animals can be found throughout the island and ambient sounds creates the right atmosphere. You will also find a number [...]

Meet the Maya - in SL

Donnerstag, August 9th, 2007

I went to a wonderful showing of some documentations my Usu Ventura at the New Globe’s theater last week. I was just too busy to blog when it happened. He shot wonderful material about the Maya in Mexico and Guatemala. He talked to archelogogists and was there when they unearthed old wall paintings and shared [...]

Education Place of the Day: Star Trek Museum Complex

Montag, Juli 23rd, 2007

There has been a time in my life when I was a devoted trekkie, so I just couldn’t resist this site: The Star Trek Museum Complex. I was very curious what I would find.
The complex houses the Star Trek Museum of Science, Star Trek Museum of Culture and additional installations, e.g. a holodeck. The Museum [...]
