Hunting for Art

After having finished the MIXED PIXELS exhibition and the opening of Dream of India it is now time to visit some places to blog.


A few days ago I have been invited for a preview of "Technochory", a collaborative exhibtion of Bryn Oh and Sina Souza. With the given landing spot I found myself under under water in a nice landscape.


The show was announced as to be placed in "The Station Skywalk Gallery", so I obviously was wrong and my odyssey started.  The sim ist greatly designed and has many interesting features and vehicles.


On arrival at the sky platform I was still unsure where to go. I saw a club, a fun ride and I jumped into the train. No gallery! To give you a hint: Try to find an entrance to the walkways under the rails. As much as I like the place it is sometimes annoying when the sim owners do not help the visitors to find places.


About the installation: Technochory is a collaborative exhibit based on the concept of seed dispersal similar to Myrmecochorty which is the dispersion of seeds by ants.  The difference being a future where the plant is a fragile resource with humans as its caretakers.


The small fragile plant, built by Bryn Oh is the heartwarming center of Bryn's build and Sina's images as a moving symbol of nature. Excellent!

Ah Quan, thanks for visiting! I'm so glad you enjoy the sim and the exhibit. The LM issue on that note was my mistake as I sent it to you when I caught you online but haven't passed it out publicly yet since the exhibit opens Sunday and I DID have the wrong SLurl along with a correct direct LM link so you got the long explore version I guess. I hope you enjoyed it all as much as I do and am glad you found your way to the exhibit. Fixing the note card now before I do a mass invite spam. Thanks again for blogging it!
