Meet the MU artist, Nebulosus Severine. [Maria 10, Medici University]
Nebulosus Severine has been creating art in Second Life for nearly ten years. After being out of SL for an extended period, they (Nebulosus eschews the limiting nature of gender pronouns) returned to SL and experimented with some of SL’s newer features, such as lighting models and materials.
Nebulosus’ Medici University creation is called Thrum. Nebulosus says,
“[Thrum is] an abstract representation for my sheer love of color, light, and sound. I built it out of sheer hedonism for those things.”
Standing outside, you see Thrum as a colorful cube. But walk inside, go into mouse look, turn off the sim music and turn up the sounds. Inside of Thrum, your vocabulary is stretched to its limits: its peaceful, scintillating, meditative, snowy, drifting… Language is inadequate to describe the abstract visual and auditory sensations of Thrum. Don’t try to describe it. Relax and just enjoy.
Nebulosus also has an installation called, Too Many Flowers. You can see it at Intermundia.
And if you’re feeling especially generous, Nebulosus might be in danger of having to leave SL if they don’t get a new laptop, soon. You can donate to their laptop fund at Intermundia.
