"We’re starting off 2022 and the conversation about the metaverse is making the world think about their virtual presentation more than ever. The collective thinking of our virtual selves is spreading to a bigger audience that is getting familiarised with the idea just now - as in Second Life, which exists for almost 20 years, we can safely say it has been going for awhile.

Launching our new exhibition space - the 2D Gallery W, we have Rob Danton, in Second Life for over 16 years and RL filmmaker for longer than that, with a series of personal portraits from ten residents on the grid, highlighting the similarities existing between their physical and virtual personas.

This subject is one of the most fascinating in the grid because of the human value applied to what we can call essentially blobs of pixels. It has been a common subject amongst academics, artists and whatnot. What is fascinating is seeing how it is approached, unravelled, unfolded, digested."

Second Sighting - 10.jpg

"For the second part of this holiday season’s celebration in The 22 art space, the fabulous photographer, model and creator Wicca Merlin and I present to Second Life’s residents Electric Sheep, one of the two exhibitions dedicated to SL’s sci-fi and cyberpunk universe – the other one being Huckleberry Hax’s Waarheid: Truth Hunter – that open ... December 18, in the gallery, in Bellisseria. Electric Sheep runs until March 19, 2022, and displays two different views of the cyber-futuristic environment in Second Life. Each photographer shows five pictures of their existing catalog and another three new pictures especially conceived for the present exhibition." Read more on the blog.

"I visited the current exhibtion at Michiel Bechir Galleries that features the art of 4 female artists, three of them unbeknownst to me so far: Evie Heights (Eve Pearl), Mya Audebarn, Serenitee Bliss and Rose (rosehanry). With just a few exceptions the exhibtion shows female portraits – 4 artists, 4 different styles and interpretations." Read more on the blog.

New World Notes - 21.png

"Faith in Persona is a pretty banging experimental pop album with a top-rated track from rising indie artist Keith Rankin aka Giant Claw, and if the album cover seems familiar, there's a very good reason for that: It's drawn directly from works by beloved Second Life-based artist Whiskey Monday (with her full permission of course)."
