Loose Thoughts… February 22, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 8:38 am

Just loose thoughts tonight… maybe some chatting with the D. We’ll see…

I now have *two* Edwardston Station Galleries on the mainland. Just like that. The Edwardston Station Gallery in Healy presently contains the complete Hidalgo, Wheeler, and also Oblong series of the 10×10, for a total of around 40 collages. It’s really quite packed. Yesterday I also rented some space in a tower in Seefeld, in the Snow Region of Sansara. It’s a building Wilsonia stumbled upon in her recent wanders in this large area, and, as it turns out, a kind of culmination of these explorations. Baker Bloch, now that he has an established center, is also set to continue the Snow Region explorations, if Wilsonia decides not to do it herself. Count on a number of further posts about that subject.

To the details of the new gallery itself, which I’m simply calling Edwardston Station Gallery – Seeland. Already I’ve fitted the space with the Rose Hill, Yale-Newton, and also the Oblong series. Of the 10×10 series, only the earliest now, or the Greenup series, is not currently being shown in a commercial gallery. I consider this one to be the least important to show, perhaps. So it’s kind of a division of older and newer collages of the 10×10 going on between Healy and Seefeld. Btw, Seefeld is names for an important skiing village in the Austrian Alps.

The current overlap between the two comes in the Oblong series, which is present in both versions of the Edwardston Station Gallery. I plan to eventually remove the Oblong series from the Healy version, and replace it with the last series of the 10×10, Jasper, which will supposedly start very, very shortly.

I’ll provide some pictures of the Seefeld gallery asap.

Which brings us to the Otherland gallery/temple complex, which has received almost no visitors up to now. This is over a month into its existence, I believe. I’ve decided to wait until after the Jasper series is completed, probably sometime toward the end of March, before fully confronting the reality of perhaps giving up the Otherland property, in an effort to further downsize my property claims in SL. Still not sure I want to do that, though.

Otherland exploration has been put on a bit of a hold. Not sure that will change during the composition of the Jasper collages, as my focus may remain on the Snow district, and perhaps the Blake Sea as well. There are now substantiated rumors that new continents will emerge around Gaeta soon; Baker Bloch wants to explore those virgin lands when they first appear as well.

“Let’s bring in Hucka D. to see if he wants to say anything tonight. Hucka D?”

Hucka D.:

There is an interesting tension happening between the two versions of the Edwardston Station Gallery, don’t you think? I believe it is helping both. Old verses new; two quite different rental spaces.

bb:

There may be the possibility of showing the entire 10×10 in Seefeld, Hucka D. But I don’t plan on doing that right now. I like the artistic community the Healy gallery plugs me into, centered on the Kelly Yap Gallery and Kelly herself, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

There’s more story to all that. Doghause.

bb:

Right, I’ll also explore that further soon.

Hucka D.:

Graham… Doghause… Resident;Ornaglyphics… walking stick of a path connecting them. You are new there, freshly emerged, without pupils, from behind a mysterious curtain that may be the Gallery at the Temple of TILE.

bb:

Ornaglyphics, for example, would be like Duck Stab, then? A more mature and blended-in version of myself and my gallery there?

Hucka D.:

Could be. You see yourself in the future, sitting on the couch or perhaps standing, talking to one of the Residents. But this is you as well. You are the Resident, the creator, as well. The face emerging from the curtain in the ESG collage would be more your gallery then, perhaps.

bb:

Interesting. New gallery on the block. More than me personally.

Hucka D.:

People understand that the gallery speaks more to the real life person than the avatar he or she chooses, most likely. especially if you are a true and involved artist. But the avatar can also be a work of art, or turn into one. What does your avatar, Baker Bloch, say about you?

bb:

That my appearance in SL means less than what the gallery represents. For sure.

Hucka D.:

Some people don’t quite feel that way.

bb:

That’s fine.

Hucka D.:

Do you want pupils? So that you can see more clearly?

bb:

I can see fine. I don’t use Baker Bloch’s eyes to see in SL.

Hucka D.:

Remember when we exchanged eyes? Before even my character became the bee it is now? This would be over a year ago now.

bb:

I don’t think that Hucka D. is the same as you, though.

Hucka D.:

Exchange… putting yourself in another’s shoes or eyes or whatever. Ruby slipper. Singular.

bb:

Can you answer anything about Otherland tonight, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Nother. RL photography soon. Exploration. Jasper series, then heavy exploration. Photography. Mossmen portals explored. Endohikes resumed. Inner and outer. Rent in SL; explore. But ultimately you are not a builder in SL.

bb:

No. I construct places to house the collages and Edna’s photography now. But… the Temple of TILE.

Hucka D.:

You wish to have a series of dialogs about TILE, then. And the temple.

bb:

I think it’s probably called for.

Hucka D.:

Are you ready to talk about Dark Side of the Rainbow? I don’t think you are.

bb:

I need to do more experiments. May have to get a new computer first.

Hucka D.:

Chromagraphs are hooked into DSotR now.

bb:

They could be.

Hucka D.:

You need the crow, the 13th, in the center of the 12. Where does 12 become 13, baker b.?

bb:

In the center of Dark Side of the Rainbow, where you flip the vinyl record back over.
