In the great art sim of Per4mance MetaLES ..O.., curated by Ux Hax, Lanjran Choche and Romy Nayar, we are currently treated to a stunning installation by Cherry Manga entitled Aerie, on display through November 7th. (The sim's exhibition changes on a regular basis, offering women artists in Second Life the opportunity to have the full sim for a month at a time.)
On the ground of the island, tranquil grasses sway gently in the wind while a huge tree towers overhead, its branches occupied by mysterious and surreal shapes. But central to the entire installation are the birds (swallows, perhaps), which quickly swoop around the tree in an astonishing cascade of movement. There are spots where you can click to catch a ride amongst them, as my partner Lexi is doing above (you're looking up at her). Don't miss the opportunity to catch this remarkable work before it disappears!
P.S. A special thank you to Draggy Convair for tipping me off to this lovely exhibition. :)
