LEA23 Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor by Frankx Lefavre


If you haven't yet been to see the immersive world created by Frankx Lefavre at LEA23... you owe it to yourself to do so. The incredibly detailed work is full of symbolism and is an artistic representation of the recent difficulties Frankx suffered in his real life and which he chose to work through by sharing what I consider to be an exemplary creation.


In the landing area, you will find two signs that help to explain his personal journey.


He also gives a description of his materials and process and recommendations for the best viewing.


 To begin your journey through his world, there is a rezzer with directions at the landing area that will take you into the rest of the sim by touching the prim and allowing you to fly in a guided bubble.



 Pictures do not do this sim justice...seeing it for yourself is definitely a treat. 


But as with all things- it will not last forever- be sure to see Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor by Frankx Lefavre before Round 10 ends.

LEA10 The Oracle By Asmita Duranjaya

 The Oracle is another tale in the cycle of stories around the exo-city CyberPolis. Presented in a hud-book, it is told from the perspective of researcher Lisa Sheldrake, whose report guides the visitors of the sim LEA10 through a game.
The full-sim-installation can also be experienced without game or story, simply as an art-park with forests of stunning 3D-fractals and the maze can be seen as a subterranean art gallery with flat fractal-pictures. The color-scheme of yellow-orange-red is predominant and the visitor can stroll around or fly in a fractal blossom, listening to ambient music.
 6 letters and 7 gifts have to be claimed inside and outside of a central maze until the solution word is found and the door to the oracle in the middle of the sim can be opened.

On April 24th please join us at LEA10 for the amazing music of Michael K Iwoleit while the talented Asmita Duranjaya paints with partials creating a vision of splendor for us all to enjoy!
This is a visual preview of the live-event on LEA10 on 24th of April at 1pm SLThttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA10/130/157/105:

It will continue the story of researcher Lisa Sheldrake to find the secrets of the urban planetary system CyberPolis.
This time anthropologist will discover an old oracle. Her story will guide the visitors through a maze and help them to communicate with an alien species and at last with the oracle itself.

   LEA10: Another Tale of CyberPolis - The Oracle by Asmita Duranjaya
A sim wide immersive and interactive art-installation based on gaming and storytelling. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA10/130/157/105:

LEA25 Asimia Heron's "Because Blue" opens April 9


"Because Blue" by Asimia Heron opening on LEA 25 on Saturday April 9 at 5 pm SLT; Opening Night Party featuring DJ Blaize Nightfire from 6 to 8 pm SLT.

"The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls towards the infinite, awakening a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural... The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white."

--Wassily Kandinsky

"Because Blue" is a multi-level journey from darkness to light inspired by Kandinsky's observations of the powerful emotional and spiritual properties of the color blue. Visitors traverse five platforms that rise into the air, each with its own theme and affect, constructed and staged using only blue textures and objects. With each successive level, the color lightens until visitors are lifted into that place of silent stillness.
