Join us today, Monday 18th October 2021 at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey back into the past for a show first shown in 2013, looking at the work of an artist celebrated for her artworks in Second Life but who created the most amazing installation for the Relay for Life Weekend that year.

Or you can watch it in our Archive collection on Vimeo – or here on our blog!

One of the highlights of the event was the wonderful Survivors and Caregivers’ Camp created by the artist Winter Nightfire. This took you on an allegorical journey from the bleakness of diagnosis, on a long and difficult journey, with places of beauty for reflection and hopes for the future (the ruined cancer hospital is inspiring and poignant, a very special place) – till the journey reached its apogee in a burst of colour, excitement and sheer fun with a huge funfair.

It was a spectacular, beautiful and powerful build – and we will be exploring it in detail on this week’s show.

And we will also be talking to Winter about her art and her work for charity within Second Life – and the crossover of the Artathon at the Second Life Community events.

In this show, Designing Worlds explores Seraphim, the premier shopping resource in (and for) Second Life. Seraphim began as the website SeraphimSL but has more recently acquired an inworld presence too.

We’re joined by Kess Crystal and Delicate Flower, the owners of Seraphim, along with some of their colleagues, and get a thorough look around the region, including the extensive Outlet store, gardens, offices and much more. We also get a detailed look at the web site itself with its extensive coverage of events and sales, and gain some fascinating insights into the workings of a site that pulls in an average of 53,435 page views a day – the most popular SL-related non-Linden web site out there.

It all makes for a really interesting show that explores some of the possibilities Second Life offers for publicity and marketing on a scale that might surprise many people – they expect to get around 18 million visits this year!

You’ll find the Seraphim website here: https://www.seraphimsl.com/
