“Edward(ston) Station ((Gallery))” (2) February 6, 2009

“Let’s possibly continue then, Hucka, on the interpretation of what we’re shortening as “ESG”, what appears to be the 4th of the newish Wheeler series. Should we begin with Oklahoma, then? We’re already starting the 5th of the series, which may be completed by the weekend. That’ll make an animation with the 6th, then, if things go according to plan and comply with past models (i.e., all 5th and 6th collages of each series make an animation in respective with the other). But I think it’s important to dig a little further into the fourth, perhaps, before moving into the real meat of the Wheeler series. Do you agree, or are we finished with the 4th?”

Hucka D.:

Let’s talk about Oklahoma, then.

bb:

We’ve talked a bit already about how the walking stick may represent the gallery complex that the Edwardston Station Gallery is now a part of [elsewhere: Yap-land], centering on the east-west alignment (separated by this main, spinal path) of Edwardston Station Gallery and Ornaglyph galley just across this path from you and a little to the north. Walking stick = walking path. There’s also the fact that the golden spindly legs of the insect match the lettering of the Edwards Creek Station marker used in the collage. The “E” beginning this name is overlapped in the picture with the end of one of these very similarly colored and wide legs, in fact. Interesting minor juxtaposition for sure.

Hucka D.:

There’s a confusion about where the legs of the walking stick actually are in reference to the images representing the 2 neighboring galleries. But, yes, the main body of the walking stick, the central “spine”, is this path. I think this is obvious. Walking stick also obviously refers to the willow walking sticks with the diamond patterns in them you mentioned before. In fact, I believe the new collage may be called… what was it?

bb:

Thinking about “Diamond Willows”… or perhaps “Diamond Willies” (smiles). It will partially relate back to the “Benwheelerworld” collage.

*****

bb:

Sorry… the central picture within a picture from Benwheelerworld, uniting the palm with the willow (same willow), is at least partial (microcosmic) reference to the new 5th collage, still in development, and probably the projected twinned 6th as well. Interestingly, perhaps, the 5th collage of Wheeler is also harking back to the 5th collage of the Oblong series, 3 tiers before it (6th as opposed to Wheeler’s 9th). Come to think of it, maybe in the 5th collage of the 3rd tier is involved (Rose Hill)… I’ll have to also look back at that one, then.

Hucka D.:

We are still talking about the gallery, as we were with Benwheelerworld. The willow tree below the palm tree still exists at the gallery… that hasn’t changed. What *has* changed is the addition of The Arab at the gallery. You should take snapshots of that addition tonight… quite exciting. But you’re at your limit of prims, now. 😦

bb:

That’s ok. Add any more and the lag may really start to become a factor at the new gallery. I miss the tubes, though [from the Rubi version of the Gallery at the Temple of TILE]. Should we talk more, then, about The Arab?

Hucka D.:

Sure. Grassy. Gypsy. Arab. Missouri. Sink/sank/sunk. Sunkland. Sink Creek. Ink… Map… Rat… Gang. Foreign One. Supplies/cargo. Roller Coaster. Rat. Giant. Gang. Willard. Willie…sss.

bb:

Willow Hill? [in Jasper County, IL as well]

Hucka D.:

Might be a bleedthrough. Into Wheeler. Check…

bb:

Hold on…

*****

bb:

Well, unclear if that’s so, but I’ve saved some more images. Interesting that in English folklore the willow was thought of as sinister and has the ability to uproot itself and walk around. And also the tree is sacred to the Wiccans.

Hucka D.:

Mossman is also a plant that can walk around. He has 3 feet at times in doing so. Lamb’s feet. Leaves bigger footprints, though.

bb:

In getting back to the ESG collage, though, I think the camera the woman is shooting represents a type of 3rd eye, the eye of the camera anyway, and positioned, width-wise, between her two “normal” eyes [which are also hard to make out]. This would be the eyeball head of The Resident. I should also mention that an eyeball avatar plays an important factor in the translation of Hucka D. — you! — to the realm of Hidalgo, as discussed a bit in this very early post from the blog, but also in more detail in the little document that actually preceded the blog, called “Sandbox Chronicles” [link soon]. This was composed during my first month’s involvement with SL, Hucka D., when my eyes were totally fresh and new.

Hucka D.:

They are returning to that state.

bb:

Ok.

Hucka D.:

There’s more to this collage than might meet the *present* eyes, but some of the interpretation must be saved for later. You must move on now to the rest of the Wheeler series. Obviously SF is still trying to speak to you.

bb:

Should we contact him tonight?

Hucka D.:

It was more important to talk to SF during the Oblong series, which was the really, really crucial series of your art 10×10, as you call it. Not as important now, although he doesn’t mind chatting with you a bit. At times.

bb:

Is SF [delete name}?

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

Can we talk about the Council of 8?

Hucka D.:

It’s the Council of 10 now. (smiles).

bb:

What about ESBUM?

Hucka D.:

He/she has been assimilated. Along with Carrcass-1.

bb:

What about RS7?

Hucka D.:

After Wheeler. Summer. Summerland.

bb:

Let’s attempt a conversation with SF, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Alright.

SF:

Hi.

bb:

I am on your mountain again, SF.

SF:

Hi.

Hucka D.:

SF has indicated to me that he is in the middle of cooking a casserole, and he is thus indisposed currently.

bb:

That’s fine. Should we end then?

Hucka D.:

Take some snapshots of The Arab. Go back to the Blake Sea. But *most importantly*, after completing the Wheeler and also the Jasper series, you must hike after work this spring. You have a great opportunity again… every day it doesn’t rain, get out in the woods. Take snapshots *there*, for a change. Go back to Northerton. The portals as well, obviously. TILE Creek. Remember the sacred triangle of RIVER-STREAM-CREEK. STREAM is being threatened, no doubt about it. Nothing to do, but you can help remember it. Go back to the Booker T. Archive and read up on what you said about STREAM when your eyes were fresh [i.e., when we were still new to the house and surroundings, including STREAM]. *Talk* to this stream. Start at the source. Take pictures. Find evidence of Toy Avatar activity if you wish.
