     Xirana Oximoxi: hello Zen!
     Eliza Madrigal zoom on light beacon
     szavanna Resident: np Liz °͜°
     Santoshima Resident: hi Zen :)
     szavanna Resident: its sooo big
     Eliza Madrigal: can see molecule from up there
     Santoshima Resident: brb
     szavanna Resident: trying to make a tiny version of mine
     szavanna Resident: San what are the type of things you make in SL?
     Eliza Madrigal: she said brb but have you seen the treehouse?
     Eliza Madrigal: it is really lovely
     szavanna Resident: oh she made the treehouse?
     Eliza Madrigal nods
     szavanna Resident: yes I think I saw it
     szavanna Resident: :)
     szavanna Resident: love tree houses
     Eliza Madrigal: I really love the natural feeling of mosses at the bottom especially
     Eliza Madrigal: feeling of time, which is difficult in SL
     szavanna Resident: yes
     szavanna Resident: its funny how in RL we want things to look new
     Eliza Madrigal: :) sometimes
     szavanna Resident: and here we want things to show time
     Xirana Oximoxi: in what sense is difficult the feeling of time in Sl?
     Xirana Oximoxi: seasons?
     Irishk9 Aeon: also night and day
     Irishk9 Aeon: we have control now in sl
     szavanna Resident: or the cracks in a building
     Xirana Oximoxi: yes:)
     Eliza Madrigal: sometimes repetitive textures can seem too stock... but what I mean is, if something like moss is done well one feels like time has passed there
     Eliza Madrigal: that there has been change
     Eliza Madrigal: and life
     szavanna Resident: yes °͜°
     Xirana Oximoxi: ahh yes... I understand
     Irishk9 Aeon: yes, i love that kind of detail
     Eliza Madrigal: cracks in the building, yes!
     Zen Arado: did you see that old place Mira took me?
     Eliza Madrigal: wabi sabi
     szavanna Resident: which place?
     Eliza Madrigal: not sure Zen
     Xirana Oximoxi: no Zen..where?
     Zen Arado: like an old Dutch house
     szavanna Resident: I don't think I saw
     Eliza Madrigal: nor I
     szavanna Resident: do you have the LM?
     Zen Arado: I forget
     Xirana Oximoxi: :)
     Zen Arado: no
     Eliza Madrigal: I think when time is 'done well' in SL the lines between RL/SL are thinner
     Irishk9 Aeon: so many great places in sl to visit
     Eliza Madrigal: thin places
     szavanna Resident: for example my build doesn't show time
     szavanna Resident: its boring °͜°
     szavanna Resident: just blocks
     Eliza Madrigal: it isn't, it is lovely and just right for the context
     Santoshima Resident: there is no difference: sl and rl .. it's just a graphic venue, and text interface
     Santoshima Resident: people are people
     Santoshima Resident: no difference
     Santoshima Resident: fantasy more allowed to reign in this graphic context
     szavanna Resident: °͜°
     Santoshima Resident: and that gets confused
     Santoshima Resident: as being different
     Irishk9 Aeon: yes, we can dothings in sl not yet possible in rl
     Irishk9 Aeon: do things
     Santoshima Resident: (am jumping in after being away to make toast, so i hope i caught the stream)
     Eliza Madrigal: balances tipped a bit? interesting idea
     szavanna Resident: wb San °͜°
     Santoshima Resident: in super-hero cartoons
     Santoshima Resident: for wexample
     Santoshima Resident: example
     Zen Arado: with toast :)
     Irishk9 Aeon: i love what they have been building in dubai
     Santoshima Resident: more possiblity in expresing
     Irishk9 Aeon: and places like that
     szavanna Resident: Dubai?
     szavanna Resident: like?
     Santoshima Resident: situations that are difficult to make visible in other
     Santoshima Resident: ways
     Eliza Madrigal: well super heros are hyperbolizing inner qualities?
     Irishk9 Aeon: all those interesting detailed highrises
     Santoshima Resident: liek genocide
     Santoshima Resident: like other dark matters that are huge
     Santoshima Resident: and need expression
     szavanna Resident: hmm yes
    szavanna Resident: dark matter hmm reminds me of a session topic °͜°
     Eliza Madrigal nods
     Eliza Madrigal: how dark matters matter :)
     Zen Arado: nice word..'hyperbolizing'
     szavanna Resident is looking at Dubai buildings
     Eliza Madrigal: sometimes to address something you need to amplify it to near ridiculous proportions
     Xirana Oximoxi: I have an image of very high buildings:) like K9's :)
     Eliza Madrigal: :)
     Eliza Madrigal: can't miss it, that's for sure
     Zen Arado: easier to build nowadays now with 64m allowed
     Eliza Madrigal: beautiful photo
     szavanna Resident: °͜°
     Zen Arado: I have to build a new gallery
     szavanna Resident: it's more like something made in SL
     Zen Arado: wow are they real?
     szavanna Resident: yes
     Xirana Oximoxi: http://www.dubai-tourism.net/admin/m...D71_dubai2.jpg
     Eliza Madrigal: reminds me of Oz
     szavanna Resident looks
     Irishk9 Aeon: they are beautiful
     Zen Arado: yes
     Xirana Oximoxi: yes...amazing
     Eliza Madrigal: amazing is the word... would love to see photos from inside
     szavanna Resident: it feels like another planet
     Eliza Madrigal: when I think of dubai buldings I think, unfortunately, of those standard houses with pools, lined up on the oceas
     Eliza Madrigal: *oceans
     Zen Arado: looks like the 'Shard'
     Zen Arado: in London
     Eliza Madrigal: so it is nice to see this kind of creativity
     Eliza Madrigal: ah....interesting
     szavanna Resident: yes there are amazing sctructures there
     szavanna Resident wonders how to make this in SL °͜°
     Zen Arado: they can't build high in belfast
     Zen Arado: it is on clay I think
     Irishk9 Aeon: yeah, they cant build very high in dublin yet either but they are working on it
     Xirana Oximoxi: in Barcelona either
     Eliza Madrigal: the intention of building high matters - creativity not just ego
     Eliza Madrigal: one can see it in the work
     szavanna Resident: hmm I just wonder how much it costs
     Eliza Madrigal: not a trump tower :P
     Zen Arado: but it's also because land id expensive
     szavanna Resident: Kev how can one make a shape like that?
     szavanna Resident: yes
     szavanna Resident: its easier in SL :)
     Irishk9 Aeon: i would make it in sections
     Xirana Oximoxi: then rotate the object
     Irishk9 Aeon: you can lean the pieces the way you need
     Irishk9 Aeon: then put them on top of eachother
     Xirana Oximoxi: yes.... that way you can also 'walk inside:)
     Irishk9 Aeon: you can twist them too
     szavanna Resident: can u show Xiri?
     Eliza Madrigal: Nice to meet you K9, and to see you artisty friends
