Loose Thoughts… October 27, 2008

It did occur to me tonight while walking around the gallery properties (both Wright House Gallery and then the Edwardston Station Gallery across the forest) that I could consolidate the Edwardston Station Gallery with the Wright House Gallery at the location of the *latter*. This never occurred to me before, probably because I didn’t think I had enough prims at that location to make the deal. But now I believe I do. I would have to separate Edna’s (& Klutzy’s) photographs from my own collages, but I think Edna will understand — Klutzy, at this point, doesn’t care I don’t believe (kind of sad). Edna will understand because it will be saving her money as well, once I sell the Rubi properties. But I don’t want to just sell them for any old price.

If I do this, and it is probably a go at this point (knowing me and my natural instincts), then what would happen is the station and then the orange brick part of the gallery would be moved across the forest, leaving the two photography levels behind — actually that would be 4 levels, counting the back addition (levels 4, 5, 6, 7). Then I’d move the kiosk for the Edwardston Station Gallery across the road to the Tyta properties. The Wright House Gallery would then become the photography gallery — put it under photography in the gallery listing. Edwardston Station Gallery would remain a “gallery”, since the collages inside are more art than photography.

Then I could reconstruct, at least temporarily, the TILE Temple on the Rubi properties, as Hucka D. has suggested recently. Can’t forget about TILE.

I think this sounds like a plan (once again). My collages of the 10×10, perhaps accompanied by my pre-digital collages, if I have room, will be consolidated in Tyta. Then photography can be shown in Rubi. Heck, Edna can think of her own name for that gallery — obviously doesn’t have to be the Wright House Gallery. Ground level will be a garden, extending what I already have there.

Edna will understand, especially if I put the Rubi property up for sale once more. But I don’t have to. Could even sell the bottom part of the property (1024) and offer to the new neighbor. Maybe split a 512 off the remaining 2048 to the east. Sell that. Temple of TILE would be next to the wooden monstrosity (hey, isn’t that suppose to be a church (“temple”) itself?

Temple, if so, would be *sealed* essentially.

10-28:

Yes, I’ve now downsized and consolidated the Edwardston Station Gallery (lower 2 levels) with the Wright House Gallery. All art by Baker B. (Baker Bloch + Baker Blinker in SL) is located in the Edwardston Station Gallery, now in *Tyta*. I haven’t decided if I want to sell the Rubi properties but I don’t know why I won’t now.

It’s a shame about Edna’s photos but Baker Blinker still has ’em in her inventory and the photography levels can be recreated easily enough. Simplified all notecards, instead pointing those interested in more complicated material (ie, history of Edwardston Station, background of the “10×10”) to the future Edwardston Station Gallery. That’s a project on the horizon now, and it won’t be just the art and the 10×10, but writing behind that and also maybe even music and a/v synching.

Let’s bring in Hucka D., perhaps briefly, to chat some more on this. Hucka?

Hucka D.:

[no answer]

bb:

I have a strange feeling that Hucka D. wants me to keep the Rubi property, though, even though he’s not answering me directly. I wonder why he would… of course, TILE, the Temple.

Hucka D.:

Think things through very carefully before you leave Rubi. I directed you there, remember? Temple. TILE.

bb:

It’s good, though, that all the 10×10 collages are now located in Tyta. That I’m sure of.

Hucka D.:

Dark Dorothy.

bb:

Hucka D., do you want to look through Baker Bloch’s eyes at those SF related collages now?

Hucka D.:

Very soon.

bb:

Is SF pleased that the collages are all located in Tyta now?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Hucka D., why should I re-create the Temple of TILE, if that’s what you’re wanting me to do? In Rubi, I mean?

Hucka D.:

Tyta consolidation is good. The Edwardston Station Gallery still borders Rubi. That’s ok and good and how it should be at this point. Consolidation. But once the gallery is removed from Rubi then other things can move in. The photos remain. Photos [new gallery?] plus the Temple of TILE remnants which should perhaps be clothed in the temple again. And also: The Arab.

bb:

Hucka D., I think I’m going to sell the Rubi properties still. I have a lot of other projects to work on, and it’s more a matter of focus now. But admittedly I have absolutely no wiggle room for building at Tyta.

Hucka D.:

The Temple must be rebuilt. Maybe you should read your blog front to back again. See how hard, again, it was to find the Temple of TILE in the first place.

bb:

Sorry Hucka D. Got sidetracked.

Hucka D.:

Wow, that’s unusual.

bb:

I was walking around the new gallery again. I like it! 1 prim left now, though.

Hucka D.

Goodbye.
