    [14:05]  Eliza Madrigal: (brb)

    [14:05]  Eden Haiku: Some wind making the hair flowing on the other side of the circle?

    [14:05]  stevenaia Michinaga: looking for the channel to soften the frog sounds

    [14:06]  SophiaSharon Larnia: :)

    [14:06]  Agatha Macbeth: Ribbit



    [14:06]  Bleu Oleander: Thank you all for participating!

    [14:06]  Storm Nordwind: Close the media play Steve

    [14:06]  Pema Pera: thank you for organizing Bleu !!

    [14:06]  Storm Nordwind: Frogs are on the music channel today it seems

    [14:06]  stevenaia Michinaga: thanks

    [14:06]  Bleu Oleander: I've asked Pema to introduce the topic "Time as Being"

    [14:07]  stevenaia Michinaga: music to some I'm sure

    [14:07]  Bleu Oleander: and then we can hear how some of you interpreted the theme

    [14:07]  Storm Nordwind: By the way these are 4 click pose cushions

    [14:07]  Bleu Oleander: so i'll turn it over to you Pema :)

    [14:07]  Agatha Macbeth: Ww

    [14:07]  Agatha Macbeth: +o

    [14:07]  Darren Islar: the four poses in the pavilion :)

    [14:08]  Darren Islar: I mean ?







    [14:08]  Pema Pera: thank you, Bleu -- I'm so happy to see this exhibit, showing so much creativity and engagement, both, from so many of us, and in images, rather than the kinds of words that we normally trade in :-)

    [14:08]  Pema Pera: I'll keep it very short.

    [14:09]  Pema Pera: Time is such a mystery to me that all I want to do is point out how little we know about it

    [14:09]  Mickorod Renard: :)

    [14:09]  Pema Pera: One possible starting point for an exploration is to look at how Being plays us

    [14:09]  Pema Pera: it may be that time, whatever it is, is what expresses Being in allowing Being to play us

    [14:10]  Pema Pera: so instead of us taking a stance of ownership of time (I have time, I don't have enough time)

    [14:10]  Pema Pera: we could acknowledge time as playing us -- as the second in command of Being, so to speak (all metaphorical of course)

    [14:10]  Pema Pera: I'll stop here :-)





    [14:11]  Bleu Oleander: it's been an interesting learning experience for me

    [14:11]  Bleu Oleander: both artistically and "time" wise

    [14:11]  Darren Islar: (at least we all made in in time :))

    [14:11]  Bleu Oleander: I started with art

    [14:11]  Eden Haiku: ;))

    [14:11]  Bleu Oleander: and used a painting by Kusama

    [14:11]  arabella Ella is Offline

    [14:11]  Agatha Macbeth: Yo Zen :)

    [14:12]  Bleu Oleander: that she calls her "infinity net"

    [14:12]  SophiaSharon Larnia is Offline

    [14:12]  Zen Arado: hi all

    [14:12]  Mickorod Renard: Hi Zen

    [14:12]  Bleu Oleander: 'My room, my body, the entire universe was filled with [patterns], my self was eliminated, and I had returned and been reduced to the infinity of eternal time and the absolute of space. This was not an allusion but reality' Yayoi Kusama

    [14:12]  Bleu Oleander: I chose to wrap my avatar in the texture of her painting and then imbed my avatar in a set that I designed also textured with her "Infinity Nets." Although Yayoi Kusama produced her Infinity Nets in a range of different colors, red was the one that held unique qualities that resonated with her both on an artistic and personal level and enabled her to produce a work of incredible power and intensity. For me it is the color blue.

    [14:13]  Wol Euler smiles.

    [14:13]  Bleu Oleander: Kusama called her works of art "Infinity Nets." At first glance at the painting, the impasto imparts a sense of solidity, but over time the plane that peeks through openings in the red net of paint recedes, suggesting a net that veils a deeper void.

    [14:13]  Agatha Macbeth: (Me too)

    [14:13]  Eden Haiku: Wonderful, and the result is spectacular Bleu!

    [14:13]  Bleu Oleander: I also interpreted the theme with my own texture

    [14:13]  Bleu Oleander: then i thought how would Yakuzza interpret being as time

    [14:14]  Bleu Oleander: and he gave me the perfect words

    [14:14]  Bleu Oleander: 

    Yakuzza Lethecus: but so far i don´t want to create anything, nothing that will be persistent

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i need a metaphor for observation

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am at maximum a cloud

    Bleu Oleander: oh nice

    Yakuzza Lethecus: a shadow around the circle

    Bleu Oleander: great metaphors for a photograph

    Yakuzza Lethecus: at least that is as what i see myself

    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s all just about exposure and trying to get into the moment

    [14:15]  Bleu Oleander: so one of my photos is of him as his Black Cloud

    [14:15]  Bleu Oleander: the other photo I took of Wol

    [14:15]  Bleu Oleander: from inside her head

    [14:15]  Wol Euler: 0.0

    [14:15]  Bleu Oleander: looking for time

    [14:15]  Gaya Ethaniel: :)

    [14:15]  Bleu Oleander: 'By obliterating one's individual self, one returns to the infinite universe'

    [14:15]  Eden Haiku: from inside her head:)?

    [14:15]  Bleu Oleander: another quote from Kusama seemed to fit

    [14:16]  Eliza Madrigal: :)

    [14:16]  Bleu Oleander: took my camera inside her avatar .... got a nice abstract pattern, but found only time .... so Being as Time

    [14:16]  Bleu Oleander: ok done

    [14:16]  Eden Haiku: OH!

    [14:17]  Bleu Oleander: someone else want to talk about there photos?

    [14:17]  Eliza Madrigal: Really nice, Bleu. We've had a lot of fun with your work! quite inspiring :)





    [14:17]  Fael Illyar: I could say a little :)

    [14:17]  arabella Ella is Offline

    [14:17]  Wol Euler nods.

    [14:17]  Bleu Oleander: sure Fael

    [14:18]  arabella Ella is Online

    [14:18]  Eden Haiku: Which one is it Fael?

    [14:18]  Fael Illyar: My photo is a very old snapshot. I took that around a year and a half ago.

    [14:18]  Fael Illyar: I wonder how to highlight it.

    [14:18]  Fael Illyar: I'll walk to stand next to it


    [14:20]  Eden Haiku: ∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑∑Thanks!

    [14:20]  Darren Islar: but where are you fael ?

    [14:20]  Wol Euler: northeast, by the entrance

    [14:20]  Pema Pera: great composition, Fael!

    [14:20]  Darren Islar: yes I see you

    [14:20]  Eden Haiku: Behind the pink photo

    [14:20]  Fael Illyar: It was a beautiful night, I was about to head for bed, others I was with had just logged out.

    [14:21]  Zen Arado: beautiful colours

    [14:21]  Eden Haiku: listening

    [14:21]  Fael Illyar: night both SL/RL

    [14:21]  Fael Illyar: I was feeling particularly blessed and was looking around, seeing beauty everywhere.

    [14:21]  Fael Illyar: and suddenly felt like taking a snapshot :)

    [14:21]  Agatha Macbeth: That's your old skin isn't it?

    [14:21]  Fael Illyar: I do not know where all that blue glow came from. I didn't notice it until I looked at the snapshot later :)

    [14:22]  Fael Illyar: yes, older skin. I had just started wearing it back then

    [14:22]  Eliza Madrigal: certainly is beautiful fael... a few worlds in one shot

    [14:22]  Agatha Macbeth: Nice :)

    [14:22]  Gaya Ethaniel: :)

    [14:22]  Eden Haiku: And the blue just happening, wow!

    [14:22]  Fael Illyar: but the result certainly is beautiful :)

    [14:22]  stevenaia Michinaga: :)

    [14:22]  Agatha Macbeth: Blue does that....

    [14:22]  SophiaSharon Larnia: its quite surreal

    [14:23]  Fael Illyar: but blue was my theme that day, as you can see from my wings :)

    [14:23]  Eliza Madrigal: :)

    [14:23]  Eden Haiku: Yes, surreal!

    [14:23]  Bleu Oleander: (likes the connection)

    [14:23]  SophiaSharon Larnia: as time can be

    [14:23]  Eden Haiku: ;)

    [14:23]  Fael Illyar: I took the snapshot and went to bed.


    [14:23]  Fael Illyar: few months later I first noticed what I had taken :)

    [14:24]  stevenaia Michinaga: looks as peaceful as that

    [14:24]  Fael Illyar: and a few weeks ago found it again and decided to upload.

    [14:24]  Eden Haiku: It does look peaceful and the avatar seems to know something...

    [14:24]  Fael Illyar: Bleu asked me if I'd submit anything and that picture came to my mind again.

    [14:24]  Fael Illyar: so, there it is :)







    [14:25]  stevenaia Michinaga: unfortunately I must leave shortly, if I may offer a brief comment on mine

    [14:25]  SophiaSharon Larnia: :)

    [14:25]  Bleu Oleander: sure steve

    [14:25]  Darren Islar: sure

    [14:25]  stevenaia Michinaga: yes, it;s pink

    [14:25]  Eden Haiku: ure

    [14:26]  Gaya Ethaniel: found it :)

    [14:26]  stevenaia Michinaga: it is faels' flower with Storms fountain

    [14:26]  stevenaia Michinaga: in the center of the playgota

    [14:26]  Darren Islar: :)

    [14:26]  Eden Haiku: Thanks Fael:)

    [14:26]  Fael Illyar: meep! :)

    [14:27]  stevenaia Michinaga: it came to me in a snap, from nothingness and then it felt perfet, how do you even begin to cature the subject ...in a photo

    [14:27]  stevenaia Michinaga: *capture

    [14:27]  Bleu Oleander: elusive to say the least

    [14:27]  stevenaia Michinaga: so during 90 seconds I saw it all in front of m

    [14:27]  stevenaia Michinaga: me

    [14:28]  stevenaia Michinaga: can caught the moment in this photograph of abstraction

    [14:28]  Eliza Madrigal: mmm, caught the moment

    [14:28]  stevenaia Michinaga: we see it every day, the embodyment of the group

    [14:28]  stevenaia Michinaga: :)

    [14:28]  Lia Rikugun: (sorry bedtime for me, thank you for this exhibit and the background information, good night and have fun)

    [14:28]  Pema Pera: Fael seems to provide a core theme here in many ways -- my picture, behind Steve, is another Fael production, a rather angelic one :-)

    [14:29]  Wol Euler: 'night lia

    [14:29]  SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Lia :)

    [14:29]  Gaya Ethaniel: Good night :)

    [14:29]  Gaya Ethaniel: :)

    [14:29]  Fael Illyar: I'm touched to see my work appearing in so many pictures here :)

    [14:29]  Fael Illyar beams happily.

    [14:30]  Agatha Macbeth: You're inspiring Fael :)

    [14:30]  stevenaia Michinaga: with that I must depart (into the heat here)

    [14:30]  Pema Pera: :)

    [14:30]  Agatha Macbeth: C ya Steve

    [14:30]  Bleu Oleander: bye steve thank you!





    [14:30]  Storm Nordwind: I can continue, if now's a good time

    [14:30]  stevenaia Michinaga: thnks about fying up, storm didn;t leave a hole in the roof

    [14:30]  Storm Nordwind chuckles

    [14:30]  stevenaia Michinaga: :)

    [14:31]  Eliza Madrigal: haha

    [14:31]  Agatha Macbeth watches steve fy up

    [14:31]  Storm Nordwind: I was greedy - I entered 4 exhibits (using both sides of two boards). Don't worry I'll be brief about them! ;-)

    [14:31]  stevenaia Michinaga is Offline

    [14:31]  Storm Nordwind: Facing in to this circle is "Elements of time". This is the girl seen through the pink lotus flower. (To my right, behind Eden and Eos)

    [14:31]  Storm Nordwind: It was taken in the PaB pavilion with one of my old avatars and includes the five traditional Chinese elements.

    [14:31]  Storm Nordwind: Why? Well, despite everything going on around her, she is simply poised, undistracted - Being in the moment, being in time.

    [14:31]  Storm Nordwind: I have a poem summarizes this:

    [14:32]  Storm Nordwind: .

    she waits as

    elements dance

    hers the point

    of still being


    [14:32]  Eden Haiku: Was she your av atar then?

    [14:32]  Storm Nordwind: 4 years ago yes

    [14:32]  Storm Nordwind: On the opposite side of that, facing outward, is "Flowing like moonlight". (You'll need to swing your camera round!)

    [14:32]  Eden Haiku: Ah! nice :)

    [14:32]  Agatha Macbeth: Cute :)

    [14:32]  Wol Euler smiles.

    [14:32]  Eliza Madrigal: Ohh yes really nice

    [14:32]  Fael Illyar smiles 'Yes, cute.'

    [14:32]  Storm Nordwind: This wobbly picture was taken from a hundred metres below the PaB pavilion, through the surface of the subterranean sea dwln there, looking upwards to the pavilion.

    [14:32]  Storm Nordwind: Time seems to flow... but from where, and where to? Could time itself be an illusion? Perhaps an imputation of our mind?

    [14:33]  Storm Nordwind: I have another poem that laughs and juggles with these possibilities:

    [14:33]  Eden Haiku: There is a subterranean sea under the pavilion, wow!

    [14:33]  Storm Nordwind: .


    a flow


    no place

    to go

    [14:33]  Eos Amaterasu is Offline

    [14:33]  Eliza Madrigal: :))

    [14:33]  Storm Nordwind: Keep your camera looking at the outside of this inner circle.

    [14:33]  Zen Arado: nice poem

    [14:33]  Storm Nordwind: Also facing outside is "Hourglass". (This is to my left, behind Darren and Zen, but on the other side.)

    [14:33]  Storm Nordwind: I build a giant hourglass to take this picture, and filled it with rather unusual 'sand'.

    [14:34]  Storm Nordwind: There is a flow of life, perhaps many lives, from top to bottom, and an avatar is only recognizable as such at the exact point of flow.

    [14:34]  Storm Nordwind: This can show many things, including opportunity and the fragility of the moment.

    [14:34]  Storm Nordwind: Another poem - musing on these possible interpretations:

    [14:34]  Eden Haiku: Hummm, at the exact point of flow, interesting...

    [14:34]  Storm Nordwind: .

    your turn

    to be

    too soon


    too late

    [14:34]  Storm Nordwind: Finally, facing inwards, there is "Only so long". I used a grain of fallen 'sand' from the Hourglass for this.

    [14:34]  Eden Haiku: :)


    [14:34]  Storm Nordwind: An avatar seems to be undergoing a slow and deadly metamorphosis.

    [14:35]  Storm Nordwind: This is behind Fael and Darren

    [14:35]  Storm Nordwind: His clothes show flames. His head is transforming into a skull.

    [14:35]  Storm Nordwind: He has accepted the opportunity that he feels time has given him, but every second he is closer to the end of that opportunity.

    [14:35]  Storm Nordwind: A final poem reminds him of this:

    [14:35]  January Lightfoot is Offline

    [14:35]  Eden Haiku: Like a cyborg of Death...

    [14:35]  Storm Nordwind: .

    we have

    only so long


    eats us

    every moment

    [14:36]  Storm Nordwind: That's all. Thank you!

    [14:36]  SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you! Storm

    [14:36]  Agatha Macbeth: TY Storm

    [14:38]  arabella Ella is Offline


    [14:39]  Darren Islar: one is a shot of the ocean, with Liza in front of it, I think that is obvious :)

    [14:39]  Darren Islar: I just liked the picture, though no facelight I'm afraid

    [14:39]  Wol Euler: there are free cushions in the outer ring, wabbs and hog

    [14:39]  Eden Haiku: Yes, remembering that one

    [14:39]  Eliza Madrigal: you are welcome to have a seat and listen to art presentations.

    [14:40]  Gaya Ethaniel: But please do not interrupt ... thanks :)

    [14:40]  Wol Euler: I'd like to say something too, but not about mine :)

    [14:40]  Darren Islar: the second one is actually the real one, Ara and Mick looking at Wol

    [14:40]  Wol Euler: (sorry, continue)

    [14:40]  Darren Islar: wehn I saw it happening it cought me

    [14:40]  Darren Islar: because I can remember myself being in those kind of situation a lot

    [14:40]  arabella Ella: :)

    [14:41]  Eliza Madrigal: :)

    [14:41]  Darren Islar: something new, strange or beatiful appears and you get focussed on it

    [14:41]  Gaya Ethaniel: :)

    [14:41]  Fael Illyar: meep meep! :)

    [14:41]  Darren Islar: there seems to be no awareness, but both seem to be really caught up in there own thoughts

    [14:41]  Mickorod Renard: :)

    [14:42]  Pema Pera: :-)

    [14:42]  Darren Islar: I realized this happens a lot, and I also realized that time is not something we really live with

    [14:42]  Darren Islar: because in this picture you can wonder how both Mick an Ara woud 'feel' about time in that moment

    [14:43]  Darren Islar: I guess it is just not there, not as an experience

    [14:43]  Darren Islar: that caught me, because it catches me hundreds times a day

    [14:43]  SophiaSharon Larnia: :)

    [14:43]  Mickorod Renard: nice

    [14:43]  Darren Islar: sorry Wol you clothing didn't come out well, in detail :)

    [14:44]  Wol Euler smiles and shakes her head. No worries

    [14:44]  Darren Islar: that's it, thanks

    [14:44]  Bleu Oleander: thank you Darren

    [14:44]  arabella Ella: thanks Darren :)

    [14:44]  Wol Euler: ty darren

    [14:44]  Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks :)

    [14:44]  Pema Pera: wonderful, Darren!

    [14:44]  SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you!

    [14:44]  Eden Haiku: Thank you Darren:)

    [14:44]  Zen Arado: thanks Darren

    [14:44]  Fael Illyar: Thank you Darren :)

    [14:44]  Fael Innovia: meep meep! :)

    [14:44]  Darren Islar: it was important to me to catch a daily moment

    [14:44]  Eliza Madrigal: Really nice, and your description also!

    [14:45]  Darren Islar: thanks






    [14:45]  Bleu Oleander: Wol did you want to say something?

    [14:45]  Wol Euler: yes, I wanted to talk about Calvino's photo :)

    [14:46]  Wol Euler: if that's all right, cal?

    [14:46]  Calvino Rabeni: Of course, Wol :)

    [14:46]  Wol Euler: it's on the outer circle, directly behind Bleu.

    [14:47]  Wol Euler: when I first toured around the exhibition as it was being set up, this was one of the first photos posted.

    [14:47]  Fael Illyar: it even has itself in itself :)

    [14:47]  Wol Euler: it really appealed to me, with the recursive image of Cal looking at Cal looking at Cal looking at ...

    [14:47]  Wol Euler: right

    [14:47]  Wol Euler: that was what caught my imagination

    [14:48]  Darren Islar: :)

    [14:48]  Wol Euler: because I thought it was a terrific illustration of the way that Now moves on throught our lives

    [14:48]  Eden Haiku: A photo within a photo, nice:)

    [14:48]  Wol Euler: we did an exercise in a PaB session once, trying to find out how long "now" is

    [14:49]  Wol Euler: when does the Now that is happening, turn into a Then that happened

    [14:49]  Wol Euler: that photo reminded me strongly of that session

    [14:49]  Wol Euler: it's a photo of now, looking at a photo of then

    [14:49]  Pema Pera: :-)

    [14:49]  Wol Euler: I found that a very strong image

    [14:49]  Wol Euler: (done)

    [14:49]  Calvino Rabeni: TY Wol, I am happy to see the idea I wanted to capture, be communicated :)

    [14:49]  Fael Illyar: meep meep! :)

    [14:49]  Darren Islar: :)

    [14:49]  SophiaSharon Larnia: nods, very strong image, thank you

    [14:49]  Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks :)

    [14:49]  Mickorod Renard: nice thoughts Wol,,for a nice pickie

    [14:50]  Wol Euler: (not done)

    [14:50]  Eliza Madrigal: :))

    [14:50]  Fael Illyar: You have a picture too, Wol, would you say something about that?

    [14:50]  Wol Euler: my own image was put up this afternoon

    [14:50]  Wol Euler: and it's a pale shadow of Cal's

    [14:50]  Eden Haiku: Just in time Wol:)

    [14:50]  Darren Islar: where is it Wol?

    [14:50]  Wol Euler: I couldn't think of anything that was really expressive that hadn't been done

    [14:50]  Wol Euler: by the entrance, where Fael was standing earlier

    [14:50]  Fael Illyar: to the right from my image :)

    [14:50]  Wol Euler: clockwise from hers

    [14:51]  Wol Euler: me looking at me

    [14:51]  Storm Nordwind: There!

    [14:51]  Fael Illyar: behind storm, outer circle

    [14:51]  Storm Nordwind: Under the cone

    [14:51]  Wol Euler: over a distance of 1.5 years

    [14:51]  Darren Islar: yes got it

    [14:51]  Wol Euler: I'm looking at the first photo I took of myself in Second Life

    [14:51]  Eliza Madrigal: :)

    [14:51]  Darren Islar: :)

    [14:51]  SophiaSharon Larnia: yes makes sense

    [14:51]  Fael Illyar: :)

    [14:51]  Eden Haiku: Oh! nice concept!

    [14:51]  Wol Euler: I find it pretty trite, to be honest.

    [14:51]  Bleu Oleander: 4000+ photos ago?

    [14:52]  Gaya Ethaniel: :)

    [14:52]  Wol Euler: but I wanted to join the game.

    [14:52]  Eliza Madrigal smiles @ Eden

    [14:52]  Eden Haiku: Do avatars go through time, do they change?

    [14:52]  Wol Euler: yep, that too Bleu

    [14:52]  Wol Euler: and with a much better graphics card, one can tell :)

    [14:52]  SophiaSharon Larnia: i think they indeed do change :)

    [14:52]  Wol Euler: definitely.


    [14:52]  Fael Illyar: avatars definitely change :)

    [14:52]  Darren Islar: yes, they do

    [14:52]  Wol Euler: I regret now that I didn't keep a copy of my first home-made appearance

    [14:53]  Darren Islar: or there wouldn\t be humans behind it

    [14:53]  Calvino Rabeni: I like the white space

    [14:53]  Wol Euler: this is close to it in time, but already much changed.

    [14:53]  Calvino Rabeni: and the reversal, that the picture is more active than the observer

    [14:53]  Pema Pera: it's both start and moving, Wol, a vignet of a vignet!

    [14:53]  Pema Pera: *stark

    [14:53]  Wol Euler: it seems a very long time ago, that first photo was my SL childhood.

    [14:53]  Wol Euler: and I have now grown up in SL

    [14:53]  Fael Illyar: I've put the snapshot I took a few days into my SL on the outer side of the poster my image is on. If someone wants to see how my avi differs :)

    [14:53]  Eden Haiku: Remembering the young male warrior my twin was almost a year ago :) So, time does affect us as avatars too?

    [14:54]  Wol Euler: (done)

    [14:54]  Eden Haiku: SL childhood ah ah..

    [14:54]  Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks :)

    [14:54]  Bleu Oleander: nice Wol .... thank you!

    [14:54]  Eliza Madrigal: ::: applauds:::





    [14:54]  SophiaSharon Larnia: thats what my picture was about, time as transformation

    [14:54]  Zen Arado: thanks Wol

    [14:54]  Zen Arado: very nice

    [14:54]  SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you Wol!

    [14:54]  Gaya Ethaniel looks for Sharon's ...

    [14:55]  Wol Euler smiles.

    [14:55]  Zen Arado: I have to go

    [14:55]  SophiaSharon Larnia: the rainbow colored one behind Eliza

    [14:55]  Zen Arado: bye all

    [14:55]  Eden Haiku: Yes Sharon?

    [14:55]  Gaya Ethaniel: Good night :)

    [14:55]  SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Zen

    [14:55]  Darren Islar: bye Zen

    [14:55]  Agatha Macbeth: C ya Zen

    [14:55]  Mickorod Renard: nite Zen

    [14:55]  Bleu Oleander: bye Zen ... thank you!

    [14:55]  Storm Nordwind waves

    [14:55]  Eden Haiku: Bye zen!

    [14:55]  Zen Arado is Offline





    [14:56]  Bleu Oleander: Eliza would you like to comment?

    [14:57]  Bleu Oleander: your two photos are very different

    [14:57]  Eliza Madrigal: Ah, sure :) Yes, My photos are directly behind Qt....

    [14:57]  Storm Nordwind: Blue marker cones above them

    [14:57]  Wol Euler: clever storm :)

    [14:57]  Bleu Oleander: cool Storm

    [14:57]  Eden Haiku: Thnaks

    [14:57]  Eliza Madrigal: Thank you Storm! one is obviously mine... yellow kimono at well

    [14:57]  Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks Storm :)

    [14:58]  Eliza Madrigal: and that one I chose simply because of a paragraph in TSK

    [14:58]  Fael Illyar: Hi Lucis :)

    [14:58]  Bleu Oleander: hi Lucis

    [14:59]  Eliza Madrigal: : By opening ourselves up to `time', it can act and speak more freely through us. Our speech and gestures become totally irrepressible

     and spontaneous, welling up from `time',...

    [14:59]  SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Lucis

    [14:59]  Eden Haiku: Beautiful quote Eliza!

    [15:00]  Storm Nordwind: We are listening to a set of presentations on art exhibits Lucis. If you want to listen, please stay

    [15:00]  Bleu Oleander: lovely quote

    [15:00]  Eliza Madrigal: The paragraph goes on, but this to me describes a kind of allowing of fullness of expression... even fearlessness in a way.

    [15:01]  Wol Euler: (brb, rl calls)

    [15:01]  Eden Haiku: Bye Wol!

    [15:01]  Fael Illyar: have fun Wol :)

    [15:01]  Eliza Madrigal: The second photo is one of rings within rings... which evokes for me droplets into a pool... perhaps memories we play over and over but can step out from to see in a different way

    [15:02]  Eliza Madrigal: (done)

    [15:02]  Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks :)

    [15:02]  Eden Haiku: Thank you Eliza! Beautiful!

    [15:02]  SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you Eliza :)

    [15:02]  Fael Illyar: Thank you Eliza :)

    [15:02]  Mickorod Renard: super

    [15:02]  Eliza Madrigal: Thank you :)





    [15:02]  Eden Haiku: Gaya, I'm curious about yours.

    [15:02]  Bleu Oleander: Thank you Eliza ..... has using photos to talk about time given anyone more insights about time or being as time

    [15:02]  Gaya Ethaniel: heh was going to sneak out

    [15:02]  Pema Pera: they're nicely complementary, outer and inner

    [15:02]  Eliza Madrigal: haha, perfect timing Eden ;-)

    [15:03]  Fael Illyar: behind my avi :)

    [15:03]  Fael Illyar: inner circle :)

    [15:03]  Mickorod Renard: I must leave too..thankyou so much

    [15:03]  Storm Nordwind: Under the blue cone

    [15:03]  Eden Haiku: The avatar looks like very fragile, tender, almost untouched by Time

    [15:03]  SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Mick

    [15:03]  Fael Illyar: Have fun Mick :)

    [15:03]  Agatha Macbeth: Bye Mick

    [15:03]  Eden Haiku: Bye Mick

    [15:03]  Gaya Ethaniel: Bye Mick :)


    [15:04]  Wol Euler: bye mick

    [15:04]  Lucis Raynier: bb Mick

    [15:04]  Bleu Oleander: bye Mick

    [15:04]  Gaya Ethaniel: Yes I think it expresses the fragility ... and the beauty of it. As much as I like films I enjoy photography for the 'capturing'.

    [15:05]  Pema Pera: timeless time . . . .

    [15:05]  Gaya Ethaniel: Timeless time would be the phrase for that aspect.

    [15:05]  Gaya Ethaniel: heh snap

    [15:05]  Pema Pera: :-)

    [15:05]  Eden Haiku: Trapping time so to speak?

    [15:05]  Wol Euler: heheheh

    [15:05]  Gaya Ethaniel: that's spooky

    [15:05]  Gaya Ethaniel: :)

    [15:05]  Pema Pera: we're timeless in our conversation, Gaya :)

    [15:05]  Gaya Ethaniel: I don't have a quote but if you have a chance, I would recommend Debussy's Images ...

    [15:05]  Eliza Madrigal: :)

    [15:05]  Eden Haiku: Memories like fireflies in a jar...moments of Time.

    [15:06]  Gaya Ethaniel: The pieces express this very aptly in my opinion much like some Impressionist paintings such as Monet's series.

    [15:06]  Wol Euler: ah :)

    [15:06]  Gaya Ethaniel: The overlapping lotuses gave me an idea though this is an oldish photo of me.

    [15:06]  Gaya Ethaniel: Done!

    [15:06]  Wol Euler: ty gaya

    [15:06]  SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you :)

    [15:06]  Eden Haiku: Thank you Gaya!

    [15:06]  Fael Innovia: Thank you Gaya :)

    [15:06]  Fael Innovia: Lovely image :)

    [15:06]  Eliza Madrigal: Thank you Gaya... beautiful!

    [15:06]  Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks everyone, I must be off to bed :)

    [15:06]  SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Gaya

    [15:06]  Pema Pera: yes, Gaya, very nice!

    [15:06]  Fael Innovia: Good night Gaya :)

    [15:07]  Wol Euler: 'night gaya

    [15:07]  Eden Haiku: Good nite!

    [15:07]  Qt Core: BYE gAYA

    [15:07]  Agatha Macbeth: C ya Gaya

    [15:07]  Eliza Madrigal: Night Gaya :)

    [15:07]  Bleu Oleander: read an interesting thought on time ... even though the system as a whole is timeless, the individual pieces are not. Hidden in the timeless equation fot the total system is a time for the subsystem ... time emerges from timelessness

    [15:07]  Gaya Ethaniel is Offline

    [15:07]  Darren Islar: bye Gaya

    [15:08]  Eliza Madrigal: Bye Sharon and Bleu and Agatha. Thanks everyone... There are a few left uncommented...

    [15:09]  Eden Haiku: Bye! Thanks!

    [15:09]  Pema Pera: clap clap clap

    [15:09]  Darren Islar: and I like it because I do think time means something to us

    [15:09]  Eliza Madrigal: maybe in sessions:) Thanks so much Bleu and Pema and everyone

    [15:09]  Darren Islar: in spite of no time

    [15:09]  Eliza Madrigal: :)

    [15:09]  Eden Haiku: Would like to hear Pema's srtory about the enchanting moment ...

    [15:09]  Bleu Oleander: oh yes

    [15:09]  Wol Euler nods.

    [15:09]  Pema Pera: the enchanting moment??

    [15:10]  Fael Innovia: meep! :)

    [15:10]  Pema Pera: the photo I took?

    [15:10]  Eden Haiku: When Fael and Stargate sang?

    [15:10]  Pema Pera: well

    [15:10]  Eliza Madrigal: :)







    [15:09]  Eden Haiku: Would like to hear Pema's srtory about the enchanting moment ...

    [15:10]  Fael Innovia: *Moon

    [15:10]  Pema Pera: there is only one possible answer

    [15:10]  Eden Haiku: Moon,

    [15:10]  Pema Pera: Fael, wanna sing?

    [15:10]  Fael Illyar smiles 'Sure.'

    [15:10]  Eliza Madrigal smiles

    [15:10]  Pema Pera: please!

    [15:10]  Fael Illyar: let me dig my inventory a bit first :)

    [15:10]  Pema Pera: make sure to turn on your sound, everybody!

    [15:11]  Darren Islar: huh?

    [15:11]  Eliza Madrigal turns up volume

    [15:11]  Storm Nordwind wonders whether low light was best for this (?)

    [15:12]  Pema Pera: there you go!

    [15:12]  Pema Pera: night, perhaps, Storm?

    [15:12]  Bleu Oleander: wow photo comes to life

    [15:12]  Storm Nordwind nods

    [15:12]  Pema Pera: or dawn?

    [15:12]  Pema Pera: sunrise

    [15:12]  Storm Nordwind: Sunrise is very good!

    [15:12]  Eden Haiku: Doors of Time opening?

    [15:12]  Wol Euler: ooooh

    [15:13]  Pema Pera: world -> environmental settings -> sunrise

    [15:13]  Eliza Madrigal: Set! Wonderful...

    [15:13]  Eden Haiku: Wow!

    [15:14]  Fael Illyar: so, everyone ready?

    [15:14]  Eden Haiku: yes

    [15:14]  Eliza Madrigal: :)))

    [15:14]  Darren Islar: yep

    [15:14]  Calvino Rabeni: don't know, what is ready?

    [15:17]  Eden Haiku: I feel blessed to hear this :)

    [15:17]  Calvino Rabeni: was there sound with that?

    [15:17]  Pema Pera: the dawn of PaB . . . appropriate lighting!

    [15:17]  Wol Euler: mmhmm :)

    [15:18]  Eliza Madrigal: Thank you Fael, and Pema too :))

    [15:18]  Fael Illyar: yes, but you have to zoom close on my avi to hear it... is there a need for one more replay?

    [15:18]  Wol Euler: wb darren

    [15:18]  Fael Illyar: wb Darren :)

    [15:18]  Pema Pera: yes, three time's the charm!

    [15:18]  Darren Islar: thanks

    [15:18]  Eden Haiku: Amazing how your photo brought another moment in Time similar yet different pema, thanks!

    [15:18]  Darren Islar: crashed at THE moment
