Tonight, I returned to Sometimes They Rise, AM Radio’s latest build where I learned that the build is meant to change on a frequent basis. This time when I arrived wheatfields whiskered the ground around the trees. Snow sparkled its way gently down the skies, blanketing the horizon in gray-white ripples, and a HUD cast a wonderful old-worldly even other-worldly view of the build.
I found and wore a wonderful Dryiad outfit that I had forgotten I had. As it turned out, several visitors approached me to study me when I was posed. Realizing that they thought I was part of the exhibit, I politely shared with them that I was not part of the art installation. But come to think of it…I think we all are part of the art when we interact with it and take pictures of the feelings that the creations stir within us. To interact in this build as a Dryiad was my good fortune. (I think I’ve had that skin and attachments for quite a while and completely forgot!) I’ve always loved trees…so being in and amongst the miracle of nature is instinctive, even if we don’t understand the full complexity of it all.
In a nod to the Impressionists painters, I played with the light by trying different windlight presets. The nice thing is I could stay in the HUD while clicking through the environmental presets:
And I could just as easily return to the standard sunset setting, one I love for its lovely warm glow:
“Sometimes They Rise” is a definite must-experience visit…even moreso now that the installation will morph frequently as the trees rise through the Fall season.
