Happy Accidents – Cammino e Vivo Capovolto

The other day I was wandering around SL with my camera, trying to relax.

I stopped at Ocho Tango to take some pictures.  The area was a bit smaller than I had imagined, so I was camming around to see what I could see.

Off in the distance, I noticed some statues.  Intrigued, I wandered closer and found a fantastic art installation by Mistero Hifeng.

I was confused at first, because I had landed at Ocho Tango, but then realized that I had crossed a parcel boundary into Cammino e Vivo Capovolto.

Cammino 1Which, according to Google translate, means ‘walk and live upside down.’ 😀

I’ve seen some of Mistero’s work before and loved it.

Cammino 2Some amazingly powerful images here.

I stood around for several minutes just trying to take it all in.  I went back before writing this post to get some additional information and found pieces I had missed previously, so make sure you take the time to wander and see all the fantastic pieces.

Cammino 3I love this bridge with all the statues carrying umbrellas. Some of the pieces convey such a feeling of sadness and loss, but looking at them gives me so much joy.

Cammino 4The way the light is breaking through the trees and illuminating the broken figure below – poetry for my soul.

Cammino 5In front of the bridge is this trio of broken ladies.  I’ve been there – broken, shattered, and wondering how on earth you can make yourself whole again.

It’s an amazing body of work – if you have even a few free moments, stop by.

You won’t be disappointed.
