Sneak Preview: Love and Other Bruises

Everyone who enters Second Life is surprised ho intense we feel others, although we just have words and the avatar. I personally think that we even enhance that ability when we are open for it. It is not surprising that we always are in danger to fall on stronger emotions with others, if not in love. But we always have to have in mind that the avatars is an idealized self of the others plus the restricted ways of communication give us in the other person a projection screen of our own dreams. Sooner or later the hero(ine) shows the true face and falls from the pedestal we once placed him/her.

But if friendship or more,  of course I experienced like everyone else the bad and deeply hurting sides of this "game". Starting from lies and betrayal over different expectations to losses due to real life reasons. And, you all know that too, the worse is that you can't talk about your feelings to anyone in real as all world is already convinced that you must have a screw lose with your childish playing with pixel dolls, right? Only other residents have an ear for us and can understand when we are sitting in a corner licking our wounds.

It was a brilliant idea of Morgana Nagorski to curate and exhibition with that theme. The artist line up is  really impressive: Amona Savira, Annie Klavinham, Belba, Burk Bode, Corinne Helendale, Dantelicia Ethaniel, Harbor Galaxy, Isa Messioptra, Kato Salyut, Leeleu Lemondrop, Maloe Vansant, Morgana Nagorski, Miuccia Klaar, paola Mills, sare Ethaniel, Senna Coronet, Stephen Venkman ,Tess Falworth , Whiskey Monday, Zandy Oh.
