Artist Turns Moody Second Life Screenshots Into Vintage Polaroid Photos

Cajsa Lilliehook covers the best in virtual world screenshot art and digital painting

Aegean2 is an alternate stream from Aegean, which I featured yesterday. He adds work to both streams, so they are both in current use. The pictures in this stream all have a vintage feeling like this snapshot of a rusted and falling fence. I love that it’s black and white except for the rusting fence. It has the white frame of vintage photos as well as the handwritten note “remembering the forgotten.” This stream feels like a vintage travelog and he provides a SLURL for most pics.

I love how the little things catch his eye. Forgotten fences and abandoned toys. The detritus that many would think of as eyesores and trash become beautiful through his lens.  [To teleport to Skrunda, click here]

Even a rusty old car at a gas station has a lonely kind of beauty when he looks at it. There is something wonderful about being able to look at what’s left and left behind and see it as something beautiful and worthy of remembering. [To teleport to Skrunda, click here]

This stream has the feel of vintage photos, the ones with white frames so you can hold them in place with those little mounting corners that allow you to snap them out and put them back. I love those old albums, except when the mucilage mounting glue dries up after twenty years and turning a page can make the pictures pop off and fly across the room. I love old photos. They remind me of people who are gone now, even if those people have never been to Second Life.
