Condos in Heaven

Condos in Heaven

     Nur Ophuls offered me a semi permanent location to exhibit one of my works and after a very short time I decided that I missed Condos in Heaven.  Condos originally was created for Burning Life in 2008 and contained one building.  Later the University of Kentucky hosted it and with more prims I was able to add a second building to further the story a bit more.  And now Nur Ophuls has stepped forward with even more prims and I have added a third building.  It is one of my favorite conceptual builds that I have done and if you have not seen it then please come here
     The build has a special sky setting and you are able to plug it in at the landing point in the black room.  If you are an Emerald viewer user then you are in luck.  The creators have placed my sky setting in there already! all you need to do is go to world-environment settings-sky settings-Bryn Oh's Condos in Heaven sky or an even more foggy  Bryn Oh's Condos in Heaven sky#2

The build is based off the poem you see as you arrive.

An Astrobot with fame
sent the probes away
now the newspapers proclaim
"We found Heaven today!"

Hadraniel stood at the gates to Heaven
raining death for six days
upon all until day seven
when they brought out the heat rays

I watched it unfold on the Internet
beautiful Cassiel with golden hair
he was captured and sold as a pet 
to a wealthy billionaire

The war is done
the condo's rise
what resources are here to consume?
Sariel appears with tears in his eyes
at the window to my bedroom.

     I decided to redo this machinima as the older was has some things which bother me a bit.

     Condos in Heaven is about what might happen should the human race find a physical way to reach heaven.  What would we do?  The story takes place in the future where the human race accidentally discovers Heaven with a simple space probe.   With our advanced technology we no longer see Heaven as a sacred mystery.  We can achieve the miracles that once were the sole domain of God.  We see it as potentially lucrative real estate for both living and raw materials.  We mobilize and go to war.  Once the human race realizes that Heaven exists they then begin to look for Hell.  Satan is found and he is suspected of harboring and protecting God.  Two unlikely allies.
    In this build the adverts laying around are meant to slowly build up a background for what the human race is like in this future and of course the build is attached to the other narratives I am working on. Condos in an ongoing build and this is the latest installment.
