Artist Spotlight: Explorer Dastardly

Artist Biograhy

Explorer Dastardly (Helen R. Starr) has been active in the Second Life community for almost eight years. Explorer was a student, at her university, and her classes where in SL. The class, VT 2.0 (Virtual Technology), was based on immersion and engaging with the SL communities. Explorer boasts, “The immersion was amazing.” Since then Explorer has created a lecture format on Holocaust Education with her mother, a Holocaust Survivor. Fanny Starr’s story has been shared with many on the grid, and the mission is not over.

Explorer also studied digital photography, and English writing, which she expresses daily on her blog. Her blog Dashboard Messages reflects the renewing, and nourishing of the mind, body, and spirit. The photography, and writings are Helen’s unless otherwise noted.

Artists Statement

“I classify my photography and poetry as art. I’ll post an image, look at it often, and edit the small blemishes. Some images I’ll remove all together, because something was not appealing to me. I write many emotions that accompany the images. The messages vary, some are personal, some are religious, and some are or about friends.  I like to thank the universe often.”


The Holocaust mission will present in July 2015 at SOFE.  Fanny Starr and Helen R. Starr, will present to Regis University’s SOFE Project. SOFE teaches about wealth and disparity in different cultures worldwide. Helen uses photography and writing as a form of physical therapy by connecting with nature.
