Art as Mindfulness Project

Music : The Water is Wide

When surrounded by beautiful nature or beautiful music, I can quietly accept joy and sadness.
I put myself on a paper ship and floated it on the surface of the water.
I know not how I sink or swim.

Location : Mindful Cove

The Project is coordinated by Ella Pavlona

Forgive me to be rainy

= Fall on me =

Everyone has a wound in their hearts.
My sadness and anger are nothing special.
I’m just a vulnerable child.I should not show sadness. I know….
But please allow me to cry only in this place.

Surrounded by quiet darkness, I sink deep into my heart.

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.

ここで展示されている写真は、MISS SL 2021の2nd フォトチャレンジの作品でもあります。それぞれ参加者たちが撮影場所とテーマを考え、それに合った音楽と、その時の心理に合った色合いを考え合わせて、作品を作っています。それぞれの作品は、実際に撮影された場所の近くに展示されています。

Mindful Cove

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.


You can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Mindful Cove while looking around the works. This way of spending time may also be a therapy.

作品の数々を見て回りながら、Mindful Coveの美しい景色を楽しむことができます。こうした時間の過ごし方も、一つのセラピーになるかもしれません。

And I think this exhibition has succeeded in expressing the beauty and charm of MISS SL participants in a new way. It’s a great project.

そしてこの展示会は、MISS SL参加者たちの美しさと魅力を、新たな形で表現することに成功したと思います。素晴らしい企画です。

More details on these works can be found on the Art as Mindfulness Flickr Group. One of the great things about this project is that you can enjoy it both at the exhibition place and on Flickr.

これらの作品たちの詳細は、Art as Mindfulness Flickr Groupで見ることができます。展示会場とFlickr両方で楽しめるのも、この企画の素敵なところです。

This is the start of Art as Mindfulness. Various activities will be held at this place from now on. Anyone who is interested can participate.

これはArt as Mindfulnessプロジェクトのスタートです。これから様々なアクティビティが、この場所で開催されます。興味のある人は誰でも参加することができます。

There are cute animals in Mindful Cove, and the blue dove in my picture is playing under my work. Creating such an environment is also the consideration of Ella and Tiy.

Mindful Coveには、かわいい動物たちもいて、私の作品の下にも、私の写真に写っている青い鳩が遊んでいます。そんな環境作りも、EllaとTiyの心遣いです。

I want as many people as possible to know about their efforts.


Short break

After the finalist presentation, I went to Mindful Cove. It’s a short break before running towards the Grand Finale.

ファイナリスト・プレゼンテーションが終わった後に、Mindful Coveへ行ってきました。グランドフィナーレへ向けて走り出す前の、小休止です。

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.

前回、Mindful Coveに来た時は、メンタルがしんどい状態で、嵐みたいなSSしか撮れませんでした。でも今回は少しいいことがあったのと、ファイナリスト・プレゼンテーションが終わったことで、だいぶ穏やかなSSが撮れました。www 前回とほとんど同じ場所なのに、まったく違う景色に仕上がっています。

The last time. 前回はこちら↓

I feel that the meaning of shooting SS has changed just by choosing the music and colors that suit the mood at the time of shooting. It’s kind of like an independent therapy.


Anyone interested in the Art as Mindfulness project is welcome to join the Flickr group!

Now that the battery has been charged, I would like to start running toward the Grand Finale!

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。。。

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.

テーマとしての音楽にはRADWIMPSのIron Featherという歌を選びました。メロディーの美しさもそうですが、歌詞の言葉の数々は胸を打ちます。

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.

Secondlifeで長く過ごしている人は、どこかしらにお気に入りの場所を持っていて、私はそれを羨ましいと感じていました。でもやっと私もそれを見つけられた気がします。私にとってはそれがMindful Coveになるかもしれないです。

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.

「Art as Mindfulness」は作品を制作する”プロセス”に着目しています。詳しくはこちらのページをご参照ください。

I will post only the Japanese translation here.





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.
