All_Most Real (images NSFW)

Now open at Nitroglobus Hall, curated by Dido Haas, is All_Most Real, an exhibition of photographic images by MM (Mysterr). Eighteen black and white photos that generally explore the female nude form are displayed on a large scale in the gallery's distinctive space, where inverted images appear to shine on the mirror-like floor. In the hands of an outstanding photographer, Second Life images can sometimes appear to be almost life-like, and many images in All_Most Real might fool the viewer if they were displayed alongside similar images created in the real world.

But the focus in All_Most Real extends beyond Second Life photography that might approach real life realism: "The exhibition is a quest on reality and perception, and how they influence our emotions," she explains. "We know perceptions win over facts and reality so many times, conditioning our lives. In my search for realism, could it be that the doll finally (like Pinocchio) transforms pixels into flesh? Or will she be a doll forever, keeping alive the hope and flame of the search? These works are meant to challenge you to look deeper, not only with your eyes, but also with your heart. Just let yourself go: will you be able to tell what's real and what's not? Maybe nothing is real, or all is, or just a part..." Sculptures by the late Nitro Fireguard are also on display throughout the gallery. The images in All_Most Real are all available for purchase, and the exhibition will continue on display through August.
