Arcadia in the Metro Subway Underground Station of Slum City, c. 2007

You are welcome to this blog. It’s a blog about the Second Life artist and character known as Arcadia Asylum. In the human experience, we tell stories, we remember, & we record history. This blog will aim to do that through your recollections of her, your stories about her, and images of the work she did. Perhaps, it will serve as source material for someone who wants to write a book about her one day.

What makes her work so outstanding? What draws people to it? Why do so many call her among the best if not the best artist / builder to enter Second Life (SL)? In the comments of this blog post, maybe you could tell us why you think Arc, as she was known to her friends, is still such a phenomenon long after her famed Slum City was destroyed. We’ll save personal and anecdotal stories for other places; this is just about the visual nature of her work, it’s quality, and perhaps about it’s prolificity.
