A Synthetic Future?

It’s been a long day. I’ve staggered through just five SL18B exhibits tonight and I can go no further! Fortunately, exhibit five turns out to be the perfect place to stop and relax for a while.

Ecological Histories of a Synthetic Future by Poppy Morris (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Sparkle/187/244/23) is an intriguingly laid out gallery filled with paintings that are, to my eye at least, all at once thought provoking, whimsical, and possessing a bit of a dark streak. I won’t try to analyze them. I’m not a critic. Come see them yourself and decide what you think.

It’s fun to climb around the exhibit to the various gallery rooms. Once you’ve finished perambulating the topmost one, there’s a zipline that will carry you to a platform with a bar and some lounge chairs. That’s where I plan on spending the rest of this evening!

By the way, I’m just spilling random drips and drabs of SL18B as I come across them or have time to write about them. If you want the breakdown on the whole thing, do see Inara Pey’s post SL18B: Your Pocket Guide to the Celebrations.
