Wow!!

This Build is defiantly the single most amazing creative fantastical thing I have seen in my almost 10 years of second life.

The land tag simply says…

“Amongst the creatures and spirits that lurk deep within the forest lies a greater being few have ever met. “

The Guardian

By

Walton F. Wainwright (faust.steamer)

You May recall Mr. Wainwrights’ The Automaton at SL13B or

his incredible Train Station welcome area at SL12B.

35314579682_8f0893768f_b

Mr. Wainwright is the owner and creator of Contraption in second life.

“Some say I’m an odd, eccentric, friendly, and sometimes spooky fellow. I enjoy laughs and jokes from all over the spectrum and do not take most things too seriously. I am very passionate about art, design, visual storytelling and honour the small things that help an artist grow such as good constructive criticism and advice from everyone – experienced or not! I enjoy designing and writing stories under that the theme of science fiction (often influenced by historical culture). I have been interested in steampunk for years and have enveloped myself with its crafts in real life. “ ß taken from his SL profile

Get lost exploring this stage step into the pond and know you have entered the creative mind of a pure genius! Fly all the way up or cam around and don’t miss the flower!

“The Ocean is more ancient then the mountains and freighted with the memories and dreams of time.” H. P. Lovecraft

I had to go see the Innsmouth build because Lovecraft is incredible and like many Artists of vision he is so much larger in death!

Innsmouth Alley by understanding complexity

Innsmouth, Massachusetts is a fictional town created by American author H. P. Lovecraft as a setting for one of his horror stories, and referenced subsequently in some of his other works.

My Musical aspirations for today;
