Long ago, Andre Breton and Salvador Dali humored expectations and enlightened imaginations. Did surrealism die with either of them? Doubtful.
If the surrealist movement lost momentum in the last few decades, it is making a huge come back in the most appropriate of places--virtual reality.
Several artists are bending the laws of rationality with digital surrealism. Virtual artists have been uploading truly magnificent works that play on our expectations of normality, igniting surprise and humor within us.
Surrealism in virtual reality is not as popular as other forms of art, but it certainly deserves mention. Most works I see on Koinup portray utopic microcosms, fullfilling society's perceptions of beauty, peace, paradise, and so on. It is refreshing to see a few rebels setting out to do what virtual reality was really meant for.
Take NeveryLorakeet. Hers is the first surrealist artwork I spotted. Instant curiosity pressed me to look further. I don’t know where to start. Her works are stunning. She captures depth beautifully, making dynamic pictures . She uses different lighting effects, poses, and backgrounds to build great images. It’s a joy to look at.
Take a look at NeveryLorakeet's works on her Koinup page. You are sure to be impressed and enthralled.
Koinup member Bark, from Tokyo, plays on the expectations of what makes a human body, replacing the human heads with clocks and eyeballs and creating surreal scenes and interactions. Some may call it brilliant, others may think it is a little disturbing, a few may even call it humorous. What is undeniable is that Bark's works are creative and eye-catching.
Bark's art is diverse and well worth a look-see. Check out her Koinup Page, blog, and Flickr account.
If you are interested in digital surrealism, check out the Koinup club dedicated to it.
Thanks for reading this far. We'll see what sort of things I can get into next
Until then, curious little darlings….

I am going to attempt to make commitment and post on every Wednesday. I hope you look forward to my virtual shenanigans.
I have become slightly obsessed with virtual photography lately. I am in awe of the things that people create. Really, there is a lot of work that you have to do after taking a snapshot to make it look beautiful, especially in virtual photography. Just look at this beautiful work by Paulina Oceanlane:
I haven't spent a long time on Koinup, but in the time I have been on I have spotted some really inspirational and outstanding artists. There are so many talented artists that attempting to name them all would result in a complete failure. Instead, I will just highlight a few that really caught my eye.
Perhaps it was the shock of Second Life nudity, or the softened background in a fashion picture. For some reason, I noticed Conniesec's work the first day I started to delve into Koinup.
It is absolutely beautiful.
She made me realize that there is a whole world of virtual art out there, just waiting to be explored. Mainly, her art focuses on female portraits. She does quite a bit of lingerie, nudes, and fashion shots. Impressively, her nudes and lingerie shots are not vulgar at all. In fact, they are quite elegant. Elegant nudity is very hard to capture when society generally frowns upon the bare human body.

I recently found Sims-DreamWitch77, a Sims artists who specializes in beautiful landscapes and portraits. I'm deeply impressed by her talent and the way she draws inspiration from songs or art. Her stunning backgrounds and attention to detail deserve special mention. I do not know much about The Sims, but she sure does make it appealing.
There are certainly many more great artists out there. I'll be keeping an eye out for other inspirational and talented folks in the metaverse. Who knows who I will find by next Wednesday!
Until next time, my curious little creatures....

Me again - oh you must bore of me!
Well this is the final part of the day I went a little crazy in Second Life and took photos galore,
I ended up and my avatar is still there enjoying herself at Embryo, a beautiful landscape with many little hills - where on each hill sits a beautiful landmark waiting to be discovered.
I spent most of my time here, letting my avatar bask in the foilage and light, I flitted back and forth between points and poses to get pictures that I felt were beautiful, serene, pensive and peaceful.

So after my obsesson with my newly hot avatar, I headed to Mao - where I went to see what I have yet to visit in Beijing, the Great Wall of China.
It was soooooooooo cool! Played around with lighting and poses a bit and came up with below,

Here I am again with my IMVU avatar Snippyish, I found this designer on IMVU named xsassyjenx and absolutely fell inlove with her texturing and detailing, it inspired me to head back to my new spa where I went a little snapshot crazy, I am absolutely in love with her zebra jacket, and this fuschia dress - the texturing ever so wonderful and detailed.
I haven't touched up any of these photos, so expect some further projects along the line, but I really enjoyed myself snapping away last night!
