Empyreal Dreams LEA12 - NOW OPEN!




The World is too much - William Wordsworth.
Empyreal Dreams presents the newest addition to its Art Anthology; The world is too much, by William Wordsworth.  Written in 1802 this prophetic sonnet accurately foresaw the impact industry and the relentless obsession with economic growth would have on our fragile and finite planet.
A surprising place to hang out inside the mining machine. Take the stairs up to the platform and just walk through the wall. Sit on the various parts of the flower, have a ride. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/156/124/22

Inspired by the fairy pools on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Visit the hidden fairy pool with beautiful little waterfall and misty rainbow and friendly ducks. See if you can find the fox. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/205/89/28

At the base of mountain, tucked into a grove of trees in Paradise Valley you will find Paradise Valley Cottage, an Empyreal Dreams original. Stop in, sit by the fire, relax a while. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/58/123/24

A bridge over the tallest waterfall on the nature side of the sim. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/116/30/55


Stand next to the vast sim-wide mining machine as it tears into the heart of the valley, destroying everything in its path.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/50/158/22

A grassy spot to relax on the wooded mountain. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/230/104/31

Overlooking paradise valley, at the highest point of paradise mountain, you will find ... a cat! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/58/33/72

A single shaft of light cuts down through a hundred feet of smoke to light up a single plant on the factory office desk.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/142/188/38

The heart of the iron factory, a vast waterfall of molten steel, smoke and rusting scrap.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/126/191/23

Wander through the fume filled street of a 19th century mining town, before plunging into a workplace guaranteed to make you cough. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/97/238/56

Northwest trail up to the Sordid Boon Mining town at the top of the mountain behind the factory.   http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA12/20/218/48

The World is too much - William Wordsworth.
 
The build is sim-wide and uses the full arsenal of 15 thousand prims to deliver Wordsworth’s message. A scenic alpine valley delivers all the Second Life garden sim favourites; flower meadows, mountains, running streams, birds, butterflies and unique water features designed for this build alone.

However, Empyreal Dreams could not leave the build at just this, such builds can be found all around Second Life. Using their unique art style Remington Aries and Ariel Wingtips stamped pollution and industrial carnage into this peaceful and idyllic vista. Visitors can find a 19th century mining town cloaked in sulphurous fumes, a Victorian iron foundry on a vast scale, complete with 60 meter drops of molten metal, rusting gears and huge iron flywheels. Finally the build has a strip mining machine eating into the mountain side, tearing out flowers, earth, rock and trees to feed the fires of industry.

In addition, visitors will find a remaking of Empyreal Dream’s other literature based art builds up at 200 meters, refreshed and expanded: The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe, The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Coleridge, The Owl & The Pussycat by Edward Lear, The Bluebell by Emily Jane BrontΓ« and Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
