Ziki Questi is a well known SL explorer and photographer who does a great job taking amazing pics of SL destinations.  She documents these on her blog: http://zikiquesti.blogspot.com/ along with some events and shares links.  When I am out exploring I often run across her, and sometimes we are blogging the same place,  which I love to see how she perceived a place. She is also now my unofficial events editor (just kidding but inside joke-an I wish sort of thing). 


Sometimes Ziki exhibits her art around SL too and currently has an exhibit at Dryland.  I have blogged Dryalnd before since it's a cool place to explore with a variety of things on the sim.  The sim is owned by Anita Witt who does a good job of bringing in some of my favorite SL artists and builders.  Ziki's exhibt there has been up a while, but I wanted to mention it as  I am a fan, and this one is about wonderful SL sims that are no longer.  It's entitled "Lost Second Life".


One of the notes associated with her exhibit states: "Ziki Questi's photography has been exhibited at Amore Perduto (2011-2013), Artists for SL (2012-ongoing), the Avalon Arts Initiative (2011), Dryland (2012), the Eagle Eye Gallery (2013), RoHaus (Radio Days, 2011), Serenity Gallery (2011) the Town Hall of Dee (2011) and the Virtual Chelsea Hotel Gallery 23 (2013). She maintains a gallery of her work in Dreamworld North and has also maintained galleries at Avalon Town and Babele Fashion. In 2013, her work was presented by Tanalois Art and torno Kohime Foundation at the Red Lines Gallery, and also at Plusia Ars Island.


She participated in the sim-wide "A Rusted Development" (2012-13) at LEA1 with her work "All the Alruses of the Which Ones," at Burn2 (2012) with the installation "lippes in smiling mood, kiss akiss after kisokushk (thank you Mr. Joyce)," and at HaveIt Neox's sim-wide build "Stirring the Dreams" with her installation "The Bridge of Quests" (2012-ongoing). She curated an Avalon Collector's Circle exhibition (2012-2013) at the Avalon Art District Exhibition Hall. She is the curator of AM Radio's The Far Away.


As a blogger, Ziki Questi writes about the arts, destinations and other Second Life subjects. She is a staff writer and photographer for AVENUE Magazine and served as an adjudicator for the 2013 University of Western Australia (UWA) Centenary 3D Art Challenge and Machinima Challenge.
As a performing artist in real life, Ziki Questi's human has presented work throughout the United States and Europe, has collaborated with other artists in dance, music, television, film and theatre, and has been published and cited in books, journals and other media."
