Spirit Within

Now open at LEA6, as part of the LEA Full Sim Art Series, is Spirit Within by Lagu Indigo and Stardove Spirt. The artistic builds created as part of this series are short-lived: the artists have possession of the sim for only a month, and that includes their time to build. Consequently, we have less time to spend with each creation (and artists have to build quickly), but in exchange we see a monthly progression of works. In this case, Lagu and Stardove describe their work as an "art project about life and death experience," and, while I don't usually quote entire artist statements, theirs is included below the second image:

"This art project is called Spirit Within based on a life death experience, as you land within the garden you are surrounded by water and light, you will view the steps leading up to a temple which within holds the light, The walk up to the temple you will have spirits on each side of the steps, this represents the spirits that where the guides that showed the way to the light, they where of pure light and like ancestors from the past. As you reach the top within the temple is the light and an Angel he was the giver of light and shows the way to the light though the darkness and back to reality and earth. The butterflies represent the rebirth and the beauty that there is life and that you can be reborn, My experience of life and death it is only a small part of the journey and as the light was given so I am grateful to be alive and free like the butterfly. There where many parts to this experience and this is just the one part, maybe a dream of the mind or a reality. But I know that I got though a bad time and am thankful for the experience. It like a cleansing of the soul to a new beginning of a new life."
