My 6th LEA Arts Festival "peek" is Limina, Birth of Mecha by the very talented SL artists, Xineoph Guisse and WhatDuh Freck. What an incredible, unique and beautiful installation this is! 

I visited with a friend, Alvir. It was dark when we arrived at Limina's sky based module. There was a distinct a sci-fi-fantasy feel about the place. As instructed, we wore the special Hud and set up our SL preferences, then we walked out along a platform that jutted into the heavens. A giant, robotic bee awaited us at the end. Its wings were flapping ready to transport us to ... who knows where? It was exciting!

Amazing right from the beginning! Here's the taxi...errr...mechanical bee that flies you to the main installation.
The bee dropped us off at a place far below. I looked around. Wow! This colourful build is so remarkable that words escape me (and that's not a terribly good thing for a blogger to have to confess ... tee hee). I even resorted to looking up 'limina' in a dictionary but, not surprisingly, it's defined as 'the threshold of a psychological response.'  
That definition just about sums it up for me. I have to admit defeat; I've reached my psychological threshold attempting to explain this mind boggling destination in text. Rather than grapple for appropriate phrases I've added a slideshow to give you an indication of what it's like. After all, it's an SL photographer's dream location and we all know that a picture is worth 1000 words. Limina really has to be seen to be believed! 
This strange, awesome, intergalactic, psychedelic installation is not just visually impressive, it also offers lots of interaction. For the best possible experience make sure you click stuff, sit on things, ride the strange transport and use the teleporters that take you to very weird places. 

Limina, Birth of Mecha is highly recommended, especially if you're looking for a colourful place to explore that's, literally, out of this world. Enjoy!
