This month, the month of October, features Solkide Auer's Fontana at LEA6. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA6/122/124/21
It's a two-story build and the first I've seen that is gated. Surprising, right? Well, from the beginning, I noticed the tall gate or wall surrounding LEA6. I even had to teleport to LEA5 to peer in to see what was going on at LEA6. So I was really curious about what this build was all about.
On opening night, I came and met Solkide Auer and some of his friends and guests. It was a quiet, nice gathering of friends and fans.

One guest noted that Fontana was the first fractal 3d build in SL. And what a fractal build it is!
The teleport point is inside this spectacular build, in the center. Right in front of Solkide was a fascinating-looking teleporter you could click to sit on. It takes you to one upper level.

As I usually do, I asked the artist some questions about stunningly awesome Fontana.
What does Fontana mean in Italian?
SA: Fontana in italian means Fountain, looking from afar it might seem like a fountain in a static moment. a kind of a picture of a fountain.
One of your guests/friends called Fontana the first 3d fractal art in SL, what are your thoughts on that?
SA: I don't think that it seems like a fractal, but as it is art, it is not just what a person creates but also what a person sees in a work, so I accept this definition.
I agree, spoken like a true artist.
Do you typically create fractals?
SA: No i don't like to create fractals but i love to see them.
Do you have any work at other sims or galleries?
SA: Not in this moment. In the future I will re-open a gallery.
I am pleased to present my brief review of Solkide Auer's fabulous Fontana at LEA6. If you haven't seen it yet, please do teleport over. You might be in awe for a few moments when you cam out.
Have fun and enjoy the art!
