Loose Thoughts… July 24, 2008

…for tonight…

I’m decorating the newly expanded Hidalgo Gallery almost as we speak. My guess is that the process could be finished by this weekend. I’ll give another blog tour then. Already I’ve lined up 2nd level exhibit rooms for both my rl wife and my rl co-worker, both of whom are very involved in photography. I’m just projecting that my wife would want to open up one or possibly two Charleston, South Carolina related rooms, and that my co-worker could open a similar themed gallery more about a particular local attraction. For now, my own plan is to keep the collages of the original Hidalgo Gallery in their place presently, since it tells the story, in symbolic form, of how all of the “me’s” got to Azure Island, leading up to the building of this gallery and the two large skyboxes so far. Then my idea for the rest of the upper (orange tiled) part of the gallery would be to fill it with the later period paintings (basically post-WWII) of Max Ernst, my favorite traditional artist. Besides being a fave, there’s another reason for doing so, attached to some photography already in place in the subway part of the gallery, where the 4 bathrooms used to be (the wallpaper is still there, but all the fix’ns have been deleted, including 8 comodes). These subway rooms, 3 in number now, tell the story, in turn, of the Edwardston Station itself through two psychically connected places named Edwardston. Already, if you google the name “Edwardston”, my blog pops up on the second page of results. Not a common name, thus. But that is what’s going to happen shortly, or already is happening at the Hidalgo Gallery. And I might also change the name to Edwardston Station Galleries, emphasizing that there are several collections in the building. But maybe Edwardston Station Gallery would be better (?).

Let’s bring in Hucka D. now to talk more about the station and the gallery, if you (the reader) don’t mind. Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yeah?

baker b.:

Have u had a chance to tour the gallery yet?

Hucka D.:

Not yet. This is a totally Baker Blinker built affair. I’m proud of her. I think she has transcended, in a fashion, the need for the giant beehives. In a way this goes beyond even the Temple of TILE. And as such, or in parallel with this — it doesn’t really go beyond it as much as acts as a balance, I suppose — but in parallel with this I see the 2 skyboxes now and this expanded ground gallery as representative of our RIVER-CREEK-STREAM trilogy. Now CREEK here is the most obvious, being attached to the Temple of TILE. The alternate name for CREEK is, after all, TILE Creek or just TILE. Yes, we thought this would be the focus of the properties [for all time], but now we have the gallery, or galleries — haven’t decided.

bb:

Me neither. I see reasons for both appellations.

Hucka D.:

This would make the gallery, or galleries — let’s just call it the galleries for now — the galleries symbolic of STREAM, which unites RIVER and CREEK. So B_Hivia would represent RIVER. And it is being stripped almost bare now to make prims for the galleries. Nah — let’s call it gallery.

bb:

So you’re thinking Temple of TILE, obviously, represents CREEK, since the creek we’re talking about here is actually TILE Creek, where Salad Bar Jack is/has been filming movies and the homeland of the Mmmmmm’s in general. Btw, I wonder if Salad Bar — sorry, Grassy Noll — would like to visit the temple sometime.

Hucka D.:

He’s already been. He likes it.

bb:

Did you take him?

Hucka D.:

Yup.

bb:

Anyway — I want to return to that visit — but, anyway, so we have the temple as representing CREEK, so that now makes B_Hivia the balancing RIVER, since the Hidalgo Gallery now must represent STREAM that unites the two, just as the gallery lies on both properties while B_Hivia is positioned exclusively on the original property and ToT is positioned exclusively on the newer property, the larger of the two properties we now own on AI. The gallery is spread out on both. It unites the two — I see your point here. It is symbolic of STREAM, which lies midway, latitude-wise, between CREEK [Tile Creek] more to the north, and RIVER more to the south. In turn, CREEK and RIVER lie basically north and south of each other. Yes, there is an association. There is a balance invoked. Was, then, the focus too much on the temple before?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Just like there was too much focus on the Salad Bar Jack movies at one time. That’s why we had to get away from that format, or at least put it on hold. CREEK is not the whole story. You have been neglecting RIVER and you have certainly been neglecting STREAM. Now your rl home is almost encircled by STREAM. You must focus on that more… you have that desire. Follow your instincts and you’re already home. So in this way, following the parallel to its logical conclusion, the gallery is more your home in sl as well. And within it you gather wife, co-worker and other friends and family, perhaps. It is large enough to contain all.

bb:

What of the spirit of Edwardston?

Hucka D.:

Let’s get to that more in a future post when the reader can actually see the connected photos (smiles).

bb:

Is Max Ernst involved, though?

Hucka D.:

Save.

bb:

What about the Edwardston Station itself, then. Was it actually there before, tucked underground?

Hucka D.:

Safe to say it was, ready to be unearthed or uncovered. But if so it grew larger when revealed. (smiles again).

bb:

The Edwardston sim is not coming back.

Hucka D. (agreeing):

No.

bb:

Poor little S-Bum.

Hucka D.:

Yes, poor little thing.

bb:

What will she do??

Hucka D.:

She’ll get over it, but it will be hard. There has been a painful loss. Something great has been taken away but something great has been revealed. It’s all just the same objects over and over again, after all.

bb:

That pond was special, though. Esbum’s Pond.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Esbum.

bb:

I wonder where the Missing Piece is now that S-Bum planted there in the pond that is the same as the pond?

Hucka D.:

In a better place. It represents the endpoint of the Temple of TILE, you know. As far as you could take it. A grounding was needed. We have that, you see… now. Gallery.

bb:

But who used the Edwardston Station if it is really real, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

The Ancients.
