I love sitting while I write...
Morgana Nagorski has an exhibit at the Palais Orleans (SLurl) you don't want to miss.
If you don't know Palais Orleans, it's a classy and classic contemporary art gallery, often housing high-quality exhibitions. And this one is one of the better I have seen here.
I have real problem summing up these pictures. As I walk around, I find myselves touched by each work, as if they spoke to me. When I look at "Battered and Exhausted" I really recognize not only a battered avatar, but an exhausted human. And combined with a wonderful lightening effect this is a true piece of art.
And then there is the screaming face of a woman clearly being abused by another avatar, titled "Don't Hurt Me" - it's just too strong for words really.
Walking further down, I find "Let's Go Get 'Em", a curious piece with a beautiful girl standing between torsos on sticks... And futher down is "Empty", depicting an empty railway station.... I think you get the impression: This is an exhibit with lots of very different pieces that has one thing in common: A lot of work and care has been put into them, and they deserve to be studied as the great art they are.
It seems like every time I tire of the lag and the crashes and conflicts with RL and funny and useless new viewers from the Lab, I stumble upon something like this: An exhibit that showes the real power of virtual worlds: Great art that just would not be possible without virtual worlds.
Thanks Morgana, for giving us your art and talent.
