Points of Interest ~ Cetus

Friday, April 9, 2010

While I have a long history in Second Life with the Cetus sim, it had been quite a long time since I had last visited. Of course, Cetus was a far different place when I rented gallery space there. At that time, it was based on the gallery district in (I believe) Portland, Oregon. Filled with renovated warehouses converted to gallery and residential spaces, modern builds and great outdoor spaces, there was a great sense of community among the inhabitants, artists and gallery owners. It was also the place where I met most of my closest friends in SL.

That iteration of Cetus eventually closed and disbanded before being completely reborn by DB Bailey, RL architect David Denton (http://www.daviddenton.com/). While DB Bailey was a name I was familiar with, I had not had the pleasure of meeting him until we appeared together on Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe.

DB gave me a sim tour after the show when I shot this set of images accessible on Flickr.

Its one of the things that gives me such pleasure in doing Tonight Live, to bring people together that may not have met but can connect or even collaborate, its surprising how many times serendipity happens on our show, that is totally unplanned. Whether it is audience and guest or guest and guest. The combination of your photography and DB's vision is extraordinary :) regards Paisley
