Art as Expression – Exhibition curated by MISS SL ♛ 2020, Ella Pavlona and MISS SL ♛ Ethiopia 2020, Tiy is open. This is the first event of the Art as Mindfulness project, which was born within the MISS SL pageant.
Art as Expression展示会がオープンしました！MISS SL ♛ 2020のEllaと、MISS SL ♛ Ethiopia 2020のTiy が監修しています。これはMISS SL の中で誕生した、Art as Mindfulnessプロジェクトが主催する最初のイベントです。
The photos on display here are also the works of MISS SL 2021’s 2nd Photo Challenge. Each participant thinks about the shooting location and theme, and creates a work by considering the music that matches it and the color that matches the psychology at that time. Each work is exhibited near the place where it was actually shot.
First, teleport to Mindful Cove from the link above. Then you can find the signboard for the explanation there. When you touch the sign, you will receive a guide HUD and “How to Deal with Difficult Emotions” by Tiy. And you will get a cute original fan gift. This round fan is called “Uchiwa” in Japan.
まずは上記のリンクから、Mindful Coveへテレポートしましょう。するとそこに、説明の看板を見つけることができます。看板にタッチすると、案内用のHUDと、Tiyによる”How to Deal with Difficult Emotions”を受け取れます。そしてかわいいオリジナルのうちわのギフトをもらえます。
When you attach the received HUD and turn the page, all the works of the exhibition will be displayed as thumbnails. Touch the work you like and you can teleport it to where it is located.
When you touch the work at the venue, the author’s comment and a link to the music will be displayed in the local chat. The experience of seeing the work in the place where it was shot while listening to music is very special.
The last time I came to Mindful Cove, I was mentally ill and could only shoot SS like a storm. But this time there was something good and the Finalist Presentation was over, so I was able to shoot a fairly gentle SS. It’s almost the same place as last time, but the scenery is completely different.
When I learned about the “Art as Mindfulness” project along with the challenges of MISS SL’s 2nd Photo Challenge, I was just in a psychologically distressed state. Despaired by my powerlessness, I felt only anxious about the unseen future. That’s why this challenge photo shows the storm in my heart and the struggling figure. Mindful Cove, the shooting location, has a peaceful and beautiful scenery, and I would normally like to shoot it peacefully and make it into a work, but at this time I could only shoot like this. I think that facing one’s heart in this way is exactly “Art as Mindfulness”. Every time I look back at this SS later, it seems that I can remember my feelings at this time. That also makes a big sense of leaving the work.
MISS SLの2nd フォトチャレンジの課題と共に「Art as Mindfulness」プロジェクトを知った時、私はちょうど心理的に苦しい状態でした。自分の無力さに絶望して、見えない未来に不安しか感じられませんでした。 そんなわけで、このチャレンジフォトは、私の心の中の嵐や、足掻く姿がそのまま現れています。撮影場所であるMindful Coveには、平穏で美しい景色があって、本来であればそれを平和に撮影して作品にしたいところなのですが、この時はこんな風にしか撮れなかった。そうやって自分の心と向き合うことがまさに「Art as Mindfulness」なのですね。。。 後になってこのSSを見返すたびに、この時の自分の気持ちを思い起こすことができそうです。それも作品を残す大きな意味になります。
For the music as the theme, I chose the song “Iron Feather” from RADWIMPS. Like the beauty of the melody, the words in the lyrics are impressive.
If something good happens, I would like to visit this place again and shoot a different SS. Those who have spent a lot of time in Secondlife have a favorite place somewhere and I envy it. But I feel like I found it. For me it could be a Mindful Cove.
I would like to introduce a project “Art as Mindfulness” launched by MISS SL ♛ 2020 Ella Pavlona. Ella is the one who keeps presenting great works on Flickr. The reason for the beauty of her work was revealed in this project.
MISS SL ♛ 2020 Ella Pavlonaが立ち上げた「Art as Mindfulness」というプロジェクトを紹介したいと思います。EllaはFlickrで素晴らしい作品を発表し続けているかたです。彼女の作品の美しさの理由が、このプロジェクトで明らかになりました。
“Art as Mindfulness” focuses on the “process” of creating a work. Please refer to this page for details.

I’ve been told by my SL friends that I’m like a migratory fish that keeps swimming all the time. That’s exactly right, and I’m always working on something at SL. I really like the time I’m making something, and the moment I’m immersed in it, I feel like I’m meditating. Ella’s “Artas Mindfulness” project affirmed that feeling.
I was sometimes worried about my position and how I spent my time, but I feel that I was able to land because I knew about this project. From now on, I will continue my production activities at SL while valuing the production process more than ever and enjoying it.
