I feel that SL sometimes works best when there’s some crossover between it and RL. Yes, I know some people talk about there being some ’emotional connection’ in ‘cyber’ between two avatars (something I know nothing about, as I have all the ’emotional connection’ I need with my RL husband and our children, and thus feel no need to emotionally connect with others).
But I’m talking about where some sort of ‘creative linkage’ occurs, and people bring their RL talents, beyond the obvious computing ones, into SL. Clothes designers, of course, are part of this, but I really do enjoy where painters import (and maybe sell) their RL works in the context of SL, where people do properly live cyber-concerts, and even where people -I’m thinking about the likes of inworld magazine publishing, and how ‘SL Naturist’ will hopefully eventually be alternately delivered- create magazines (there are already some fashion magazines and ‘mens’ magazines (like Playmates) readily available). I’ve already referred to the displays of public art at Su Casa, for example, in this blog post.
But how about we transfer our SL naturist activities back into the real world?
I’m working on an article I intend to submit to a couple of RL naturist blog sites. There’s no guarantee of publication, of course, but if anyone has any thoughts, links, photos, ideas or anything else they’d like worked into it, let me know. How cool might it be for SL to pick up new players, genuine naturists, to have some sort of virtual naturism while we shiver through a northern hemisphere winter?
