LEA23 - The Gates of Oria - Tahiti Rae

Fri, 08/31/2018 - 16:10

DATE: Sept. 2nd
ARTIST: Tahiti Rae
Fantasy ... can be such a risk
such a deep mystery
and profoundly
the strongest certainty
ever known
They say it takes 300 years for an oak tree to grow.
300 years for it to live.
And 300 years for it to die.

Perhaps our fantasy love took 300 years to grow.
An eternity to live.
And never dies.

Maybe .. it's real.

~ Tah


Where does your "fantasy" love exist?  Travel through portals under each Oria Gate on the ground to your imagination - I mean to emotional fantasy worlds in the sky.  At each world's landing point, or at it's end, you will find a ROCK with a sign for you to TP back to the gates on the ground.  If you prefer to cheat, clicking the red sign will give you a notecard containing landmarks to all worlds.  New worlds may be added over time ;)  I have featured the photography/art of CybeleMoon throughout the worlds as they are a world of their own - just mesmerizing! And keep in touch with visits, events and her own photos through AmandaMagick on her blog of The Gates of Oria! (Link at landing point)  Thank you for visiting and adding meaning to these worlds and I hope you find "that place!" ~ Tah

Quietly Opens Sept 2
Events forthcoming!

ORPHEUS & EURYDICE: a great and terrible love story in Ancient Greece...Orpheus was infinitely in love with his wife, the very beautiful Eurydice, but she died bitten by a snake. Distraught, he goes into the domain of the Gods, and to God Hades who reigns over the underworld where the dead go. Hades' domain includes “The Hells” (where those who are to be punished go) and “The Champs Elysees” (a pleasant place of postmortem life for those who are rewarded). Orpheus begs Hades to give him Eurydice back. The Goddess Proserpine, the wife of Hades, moved by such a great love, convinces her husband to accept Orpheus’s request. But, Hades, accepts on the condition that Orpheus does not turn around to look at Eurydice as they travel out of the underworld on the path to the world of the living.
Orpheus then walks on the path, followed by his Eurydice. He hears her walk behind him but... was it really Eurydice?! Or was it not rather a trap by Hades? Was not Orpheus, for instance, being duped into guiding an evil entity to the world of the living? How could he trust a God like Hades?!
So, Orpheus turns around and sees Eurydice! It was not a trap!
But!!! ... Eurydice disappears at the sight of her husband: this is how he loses his love forever!...
Orpheus is inconsolable at the loss of his Eurydice...Come all and  I will show you the domains of the God Hades and let you enter the Mouths of The Hells and of The Champs Elysees (maybe you will discover that you are already deserved to be in one of these places?!Or perhaps… but only if you are worthy of it… you may have the privilege of climbing Mount Olympus and prostrate yourself at the feet of the God Zeus – Master of the Lightning – or/and of the Goddesses Hera and Athena

LEA24 - Echoes by Livio Korobase

Sat, 08/18/2018 - 00:25

Metaphysics of frequencies 
A return to nature as a fluctuating cosmic vision, resonating vibrations where matter is in continuous movement and space does not exist. It is the unifying force of subtle body and energy fields. 
Some "invisible" elements seem have a strong effect on matter. They are all the unseen, intangible, but we hear them, we feel them.. Every phenomenon is a material trace of the invisible forces that generated it, an indissoluble fusion of content and form, of interior and exterior elements. 
This time my exploration is dedicated to one of this elements: sound. 
How much do the "invisible" sounds influence our perception of the so called "reality" -are real or virtual  the same?  So, i created some ambients where sounds drives my vision, each sound resonating within me, a sensation that i have tried to translate into a 3D visual representation. 
It Is important during your visit to turn on your viewer's sounds and your volume up, and  use camera controls to change the "point of view" of each audio sequence. Wear headphones, use your best possible graphic card setting and good exploration. Good luck with horses and asteroids.
