“Niamh’s Journey of Dreams” is a collaboration between the amazingly talented Cybelemoon and Ceakay Ballyhoo.
“Are you ready to follow Niamh?
Grand Opening Wed, April 19th, noon SL time
will be reading from the journey as we go.”
Cybele’s “Tales of the Tuatha” was chosen to be the inspiration for a new sim-wide installation on Mistwood Isle.
Ck’s previous work “The little girl and the forest beyond” was such a creative journey. Once I heard of her involvement in bringing one of Cybelemoon’s stories to “life: in Second Life I was so excited to see it!
“CK has tried to do justice to the original tales of Cybele’s blog and the accompanying pictures which make for the typical warm, fairytale feel that is Cybele’s style.
She’s had help from Elwyn Lorefield who has the amazing powers to script and create the effects much needed for the mysterious Firefly Forest!
Follow the story through the storyboards, click on them for the NCs with the text, and follow in Niamh’s path as she tries to retrieve all her lost dreams!”
“Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo) or the Dune Mouse, maintains a wanderer’s life in both worlds.
Cybele loves the telling of tales. She is drawn to both history and myth.
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 a perception of reality and a vision, and so, as with all things my work is constantly changing and evolving.”
The Runes of the Gatekeeper’s Daughter:
“Ceakay Ballyhoo (CK) has been around SL for quite some time.
Recently, she has shifted her focus from socializing to art.
First as a photographer, later combining photographs with atmospheric builds.
In 2016, she felt she was ready for a full installation and got a grant for a LEA sim. For six months’ people were able to roam around in her Watercolor Wander, completely built out of watercolor paintings and watercolor textures.
Finally, having developed her own style and a fairly unique trademark, ideas were flying around again soon. Having your own world to wander around in is very inspirational and highly addictive!
It led to the installation The Forest Beyond which was on display from January till March 2017 and now to this joint effort with CybeleMoon.”
CK has an inworld gallery and an artwalk with collected art of fellow SL artists. Both can be reached by taking a tp from the Landing Point at Niamh’s Journey (UP).
