One of soror Nishi’s latest exhibits is on view through the month of October at the Split Screen Installation Space. An ecclectic and bright landscape of trees and plants, it is undeniably and unmistakeably soror Nishi.
According to the artist, this is a little
traditional soror…a mash-up of a few parts Magoo and a little IBM mixed with 3 new IWz (InWorldz) imports (the poppy, the foxglove and the old pine) in a marshy landscape.”
I always find soror’s installations so fun and whimsical…one feels they are wandering an immersive Seussian landscape. It certainly puts me in mind to gather people around and tell them about the trouble I had getting to Solla Sollew.
One of the really fun aspects of visiting her works is the ability to playing around with various windlight settings for a wide variety of interesting environments.
More photos of this installation may be viewed in a Flickr set I have created…but you really need to immerse yourself!
Split Screen is owned by arts patron Dividni Shostakovich and has welcomed some of the most prolific and talented artists in Second Life to exhibit. According to Shostakovich,
The Split Screen Installation Space is place where artists and builders develop and exhibit large installations. Two artists use the space for two months, and then other artists take over. The space is meant for large builds that utilize the possibilities of Second Life as an artistic or immersive medium, such as works that are impossible in real life.
Some wonderful exhibits at Split Screen have included Maya Paris’ Mind the Gap (Flickr set), Flower Drum by Eliza Wierwight (Flickr set) and D. Construct by Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield (Flickr set). Eliza, Douglas and Desdemona have all appeared on past episodes of Metaverse Arts.
Be sure to visit Split Screen to see soror’s current exhibition before the end of October. Make your way to the Split Screen Installation Space (slurl) and be immersed in quintessential soror!
