Nexus Prime

I have seen the birth of Coruscant, and it was a city called Nexus Prime.

I can't get over how varied the landscapes are in SL. One moment I'm in Sanrio Land, the next, in an underground sewer exploring the warren-like tunnels that trail beneath a steel giant.

Nexus Prime made my heart pound in a violent melody. Raw, unfinished construction. Shadows that dance in dark corners. The oily metal stink of silent buildings lying in wait. Here, we are standing within the exoskeleton of a structure on the verge of creation, or at the brink of death - I cannot tell.

Throughout the journey, Chris Cunningham's Bjork video All is Full of Love plays over and over in my head like a siren song.
