“Cybele Moon aka Hana Hoobinoo or the
Dune Mouse, and “not always here or there”
loves to wander in all worlds.
“Cybele love stories. She is drawn to both history and myth. “The Siren’s Bones” is inspired by the Celtic (and Icelandic) legend of the Selkie. “Tales of the Caravanserai” is based on travels through North Africa, and The Sacrifice of Smoke Jaguar is inspired by a journey through Central America.”
“In real life she photographs both dreamy landscapes and old stones, sometimes using an infrared camera. Her photos have been sold in art shops and displayed in a museum gallery – as well as a few galleries in the virtual world.”
“I have a mix of SL and RL in my photos. For me, there is only a fine line between perception and vision, and my work is constantly changing and evolving.”
“On first encountering Hana’s (Cybele’s) work, I was amazed by its ethereal power and beauty, Her art is often a wonderful mix of the physical and the virtual, the two enticingly mixed to present not so much an image, but a tale; a place where the line between our perception of what is real and what is a dream becomes blurred,the two fading seamlessly into one another. Her blogs and story writing are a joy to read.”

“Gamine des rues
“Late afternoon was Cybele’s favourite time. She loved to be with her grandmother. Often when her mother had locked her out she would go over to Mamie’s small flat. It was very dim inside the hallway and Cybele would take the key from Mamie’s hiding place, ride the lift and quietly open the door. She often found Mamie lying on the sofa with all the curtains drawn. Her grandmother suffered from migraine headaches. They were exacerbated by worry about her granddaughter running around the streets after school like a homeless waif. Mamie’s irresponsible daughter had all but abandoned the poor child. Little more than a child herself when she gave birth to Cybele, she had decided to pursue a career as a cabaret singer in Montmartre.’…….”
