Milo and Charlotte Grigsby have traveled about IW and were inspired as a photographer and model to create a gallery of photos of fantasy, Broadway, film, classic pinup and cheesecake and glamour. We hope you will drop by and enjoy these photographs as much as we enjoyed creating them.

ICE Projects November 2015

ICE Yichard Muni_001

Elven Temple by Yichard Muni

he wrote:

INFO ON THE BUILD………………………………………………………….
This is a large and complicated build, that you need to take time to visit, inside and outside, from top to basement, more the sky level.
It is intended to be a important Elven Temple, the focus point of a whole land. Actually it is part of my project of an Elf Dream land. Due to this theme, the build features nice colors, elegant curved shapes and no modern stuff.

The general plan of the building is seven main levels, inspirited by the seven Chakras of the Hatha Yoga. The meanings somewhat differ, thought, since they are more intended for the activities of a large community than for individual practice. The levels are, from bottom to top:
* Earth (Dark Temple) (Note: there is no connotation of evil here. Rather think underground life forces)
* Energy (Red Temple) (Desire to live and to do things)
* Action (Orange Temple) (Doing the right things in society, economy, etc.)
* Love (Golden Temple)
* Communication (Green Temple) (Opennes to others, meeting people, greeting strangers)
* Spirit (Blue Temple, the top sphere)
* Universe (Purple Temple, the top spire)
In addition there is an unofficial Bad Elf temple, because we must not take ourselves too seriously.

The surroundings are landscaped using a ground mesh, an interesting but work-intensive technique allowing for irregular rocks, tunnels and caves.
Actually the overall layout is after the Feng Shui rules, save that the temple is on the top of the hill instead of the south slope (Yang side).

The landing point is meant to be a full circle, straddling two sims for allowing more people. So that the entire build takes two sims, the second being a welcome point with a harbour and other common buildings. Since the ICE is only one sim, only the temple sim is present. This explains the neat cut on the south side.

Since pure elven building style may be too restrictive, the Elf Dream project includes a common platform at 2000m for «modern Elfs». At present this sim features a train platform with a more classical prims landscape

ICE project COSMOS by Nyx Breen

Nyx Breen explaining his work for the ICE project :

September 1st,2015

COSMOS

The cosmos (UK /ˈkɒzmɒs/, US /ˈkɒzmoʊs/) is the universe regarded as a complex and orderly system; the opposite of chaos. When the ancient Greeks looked at the night sky they saw order and perfection, we know better now that there is order but also incredible chaos . Which swings through the whole Cosmic specter from birth, destruction and death to only be reborn.

This creation and it’s content are interactive, so explore, fly and go to the different LM’s from the TP areas. There are alpha prims so beware, double clicking can be used if your viewer supports it. Yet there is a challenge now and then because of the alpha prims.
Light settings are important to fully enjoy this creation;
Midnight is required to see all the objects properly.
Setting your graphic page in Preference will also greatly enhance the experience.
(there is a texture of what the settings should look like).

Several objects next to the telescopes around the build when click will bring you to URL link with photos and some information. One of the telescopes has a URL that is interactive and shows the cosmos as if we where out in it. Well we already is but you know what I mean.

When you look up and see the Constellations above click on them and they will go dark and you will see the star constellation associated with it.
Spinning around slowly are the star groups related to the Zodiac signs. On the main level are reproductions of Johann Bayers Zodiac signs from his book named Uranometria published in 1603. On the water level across the Moon Bridges you find most of the URL linked telescopes.

When you touch the box under the telescopes it will link you to a URL that have pictures, info and an interactive sky panorama of the Milky Way.

Up higher is the Sky ship that has a great view of the upper part of the build. You can TP to it or just double click transport if your viewer supports it.

On the water section there are a few things to explore on it and under it.

Again fly around double click or use the TP. To get around explore and take pictures. This content was created to be explored and push your photographic skills.

One object is made of 20,000 prims :)
Have Fun.

ABOUT THE I.C.E EXHIBIT::
“Teal’s Favorites” – 9 sculptures selected from over 60 that I have created in over 7 years of making art in virtual worlds. These 9 are my favorites displayed in a garden landscape. They represent significant turning points, passions, and moments of illumination in my life. More of my art can be seen at Gallery Freenote and Dreamsinger Sculpture Isle.

Usually I do not explain my works. I like to let people experience for themselves. They come from very deeply personal feelings and intuitions, but in the mini retrospective I will do my best to say a few words on each of the selected sculptures.

ICE projects Teal freenote BW“How Dare You Dream?”

One of the hardest pieces I ever made in terms of emotional turmoil. This is the “guy” inside that you have to face and rise above to be able to create your art…. and your life.

ICE projects Teal freenote How Dare you dream“Kintsugi”

 Kintsugi (Japanese for golden joinery) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a lacquer resin sprinkled with powdered gold. “When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.”  ~Barbara Bloo

Teal freenote Passage2

“Passages”

The courage to try again and again, to hope that there is a good relationship out there, even though your history is full of pain.

Teal Freenote Some Can Not Be Mended_001

“Some Cannot Be Mended”

No matter what you do or how much you care, people are responsible for themselves and some just cannot or will not be healed. Its incredibly sad, but its not your fault.

Teal freenote Flamenco_002

“Flamenco”

Made for a themed exhibition about Spain, this represents my love for the life force and passion that is Flamenco music and dancing. I live in New Mexico, USA. At our state university, you can actually get a Masters Degree in Flamenco Dancing.

ICE projects Hoping for Rain

“Hoping for Rain”

Hope and patience during the “dry spells”… what more can I say 🙂

ICE projects Teal freenote Gift of the Goddess

“Gift of the Goddess”

Made for the very first InWorldz Dreamz & Visionz Art Festival. Truly I look at this and think “who made that?” It seemed to come through me rather than of me.  It is a meditation on and honoring of all that is creativity and the feminine. It still moves and inspires me as if it was another’s art work.

ICE projects Teal freenote Free Spirit

“Free Spirit”

Driving in the car one day contemplating how odd that seems, I suddenly realized that no matter what my age, or what the future holds, my spirit is always free to fly.

ICE projects Teal freenote Perfect

“Perfect”

We hold an ideal in our minds and souls. We plan, we seek, we measure. We try and try again but always fall short. The people around us are all a mixture of the wonderful and not so wonderful, each in their own unique combination – as are we. And when all is said, in the end, that is just “perfect”.
