Magi's Realm

Another photo-manipulation expression that was inspired from another amazing artist build within the SL Sim of "~Empyreal Dream~ The Artbox Anthology" which was created from the SL builders group of Empyreal Tableau. If you are a SL Resident, you need to TP to this SURL and explore this small but amazing design and build.

When landing at this place in SL, you look around as are enveloped by a complete Black&White street scene from about the early 1900's. Its foggy and raining on you. Fake street citizens stand around. And then you see among some spirally phrases, a spiral ramp up into the sky.

If you follow this ramp, you walk into the most surreal animated celestial movements over this black&white city street. The contrasts of B&W to the most amazing movement of bright colors is like dipping your hand in a bowl of ice then to a bowl of boiling water.

Anyway... while standing there in amazement of the sun and stars, I had to do something with it. Wasnt sure what - as is normally the case - but I knew it was something. So I took a bunch of photos. I wanted the solar glare to surround my body.

Then as I was playing with it in PS, I got the idea of a theme. A MAGI. There are many definitions of a Magi, but an ancient definition that I used to inspire my work is:

MAGI: One with the ability to read the stars, and manipulate the fate that the stars foretold.

This peice is 9 layers of the 3 images take from the same position (as the stars and planets and flames moved). Then I overlaid an SL glowing sunset. Finally, to add to the Magi's theme, I clipped the ancient script from the Rosetta Stone (an museum photo of this famous peice) and embedded the script to make it look like the Magi is chanting spells upon the stars movements. The border is another ancient egyptian stone.

Credits go out to the builders of this amazing sim (as explained above) for their incredible building creativity. And thanks to the Egyptians for their ancient communications to us ;)
