Weekend Video

Nemo, is as the name suggests, is a steampunk city inspired by that most original of steampunk novelists, Jules Verne himself. It's the work of Sextan Shepherd, who is a reporter in France's financial and economical press. In his off hours, however, he has been below the waves of Second Life, working over a course of nearly two months to make his vision of Nemo come alive. It is one of the most magnificent installations ever made in Second Life, full of rich details.

This... referring back to yesterday's post about Transmediality... is an example of how a metaverse platform can be used to express specific aspects of a narrative universe. I wish I had Second Life skills, or abilitities with the Poser or Brice software, so that I could experiment further...
