Veekay Navarathna, owner of Shekhawati sim and Art India Gallery is a real supporter of art. He did not waist time with long discussions and started to wipe out prims to make the project possible. It was fun to watch William building the next days. If I remember right there has been only 2 weeks time until opening. He worked day and night with passion and created the wonderful 'build 010'. I popped in day by day watching the prim count like a seeguard expecting the high tide. See his video taken in the build 010 here:
The exhibition found much attention. If you wonder about the name of the work: It was simply William's 10th build. During the exhibition he made is previous builds accessible for everyone as Freebies at the Marketplace. And this brought photographer and gallerist Anita Witt to a great idea: She provides the Weaver builds in her gallery and collects and presents photos taken in the builds.The collection has already more than 100 photos.
AVENUE today released Dream Weaver, a supplement about Weaver's Phototools, which is a great help for photographers in Second Life. Don't miss the interesting article by Cajsa Lillehook with much information about the tool. I contributed an article about the Weaver Project. Read about William's influence in the photographers scene:

And good to hear that William continues building too. FloraNordenskiold announced recently in her blog the reopening of Nordan Art next month. This is good news because after the closure of Crossworlds and Pirats there is really a lack of large galleries. I was not surprised that Flora as chosen William as builder for the gallery. She always proved her taste and sense for art. And if you are curious how the future Nordan Art Gallery will be, have a look in the Dream Weaver supplement...
