Pardon me for not thoroughly researching this as is my usual habit, but I have a busy day ahead of me. I received an invitation from my Second Life friend, Solo Mornington, to see a Brooklyn is Watching exhibit opening in Second Life. Curious, I popped in with Nostrum to see what was going on.
This is a neat idea – 3D art exhibits in Second Life are getting shown at a physical location in Brooklyn, NY. I now want to go see this in person.
The exhibit that was opening was by Penumbra Carter, and it was called “So Much Depends…” A takeoff on the William Carlos Williams poem about a red wheelbarrow, it takes the concept of essential parts of life further and shows virtual sperm being launched through a window towards an egg which hovers brightly above avatar head height at the end of a long trough.
You’ll have to see these pieces for yourself – they will amaze you and make you laugh and think. These artists spend as much time creating virtual pieces as artists working with physical materials.
