Rendervisions is a lovely isle, home to a village of creators, and an immersive outcropping to a large online art community, called The Art Door. It is the work of Wynd Ling and Cherry Hotaling (above, at left and right), who I met just today on a cobblestone bridge above the island's waterfall, just beneath the spectacular steampunk store of Pandora Wigglesworth (which sits atop a giant robotic crab.) As we talked, a carriage drawn by a large bird occasionally passed by, as did an airship, gently drifting among the great trees.
And architect in real life, Ms. Ling first visited Second Life out of professional curiosity. "So I came and saw," she says, "and what I found was a land created all by artists, and I thought this was a perfect place to bring a community such as ours. So we did, and we teach the folks how to bring their real world skills here to become successful." She says her architecture background helped her realize the village of Rendervisions, home to artisan stores of the fantastic, such as Pandora's, and the airship overhead, scripted (as many of the other things) by Ms. Hotaling. However, in real life if you were to see her work, Ms. Ling tells me you'd see government buildings, university wings, and housing for the elderly; it's here in Rendervisions where her imagination gets unleashed.
