Split Screen June Installation-Eliza Wierwight, Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield Exhibits
Hurry over to Split Screen, as there is only a week left for the two June exhibits: "D. Construct" exhibit by Douglas Story and Desdemona Enfield and "FlowerDrum" by Eliza Wierwight. Eliza's "FlowerDrum" provides the visitor vignettes of the Orient in her life. "D. Construct" is housed inside a dark ball and instructions let visitors know to click on one of the many small famous paintings on the wall. Once this is done a large replica shows on the wall. The sign guides visitors through clicking the large picture again to see it basically fall apart in color disc pieces to a pile on the ground, and subsequent clicks cause the discs to fly back up creating a moving colorful light show experience prior to the original picture being reconstructed. Visitors are encouraged to play on the art. Media is used in Split Screen exhibits.
My friend, Dividni Shostakovich who is curator, states, "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."
