with gratitude to Saffia Widdershins, Zander Greene, Elrik Merlin, Aisling Sinclair, Wildstar Beaumont, Petlove Petshop, and the crew from treet.tv, experience Singapore in Second Life through their eyes, as they visit Temasek :-)
the one-hundred-and-seventy-fifth episode of ventriloquy shares with you my personal interpretation of the theme 'the Future of Virtual Worlds', that has been chosen by Linden Lab to characterise the sixth anniversary celebrations of Second Life (SL6B) later this month.
in this 1.8 MB download, i take the opportunity to foreground two personally significant anniversaries in Second Life - both occurring this week: on June 16, the Singapore-themed sim of Temasek celebrates its first anniversary, and on June 20 & 21, the cruise-ship SS Galaxy celebrates her second anniversary.
please do accept my invitation to visit either or both of these regions, especially over the coming week :-)
i would just like to acknowledge the breadth of talent and the time and effort that ALL photographers and models who visited Temasek last week spent.
in all, 51 photographs from Temasek were submitted.
quite apart from the photographs which were shortlisted for the finalists, i would strongly encourage all of us, when we can spend some time, to browse the creative output of six people in particular, whose work i have not featured on these pages till now.
on behalf of the architectural team behind Temasek, i would like to congratulate Trinidad Anatine, Halllie Larsson, and Gweneth Lange for being awarded First, Second and Third Places respectively, for their entries taken at Temasek :-)
the one-hundred and fifty-ninth episode of ventriloquy details an opportunity for my team of architects to invite you to consider visiting Temasek, where you can learn about the culture, history, and ecology of Singapore.
Today we're looking to the East ... not just the mysterious remote East of legend, but the thriving, vibrant culture of the modern Orient, conscious of its proud history. Can you take a picture that captures all the flavour and spice of a key Eastern land? That's your task for today!
i am very pleased to read this description of Temasek, because either Saffia Widdershins or Diva Regina - who penned those words - has obviously taken great pains to explore and understand the ethos that went into the design of the island. that time and effort is greatly appreciated, thank you!
