Let me confess right up front – I am lifting the details about the exhibit from my friend Andrew Sempere (Tezcatlipoca Bisiani). Andrew is an artist in his own right, with many RL exhibits around the country. But as usual with the friends I mention here – Andrew is much more than that. He is intelligent, funny, kind and generous. He has a passion for the arts and for making art available to the rest of us, who may not be as connected or as informed. He serves as curator for many institutions, including the IBM EXHIBITION SPACE (IBM 3, Secondlife). The IBM space (for which Andrew deserves a great deal of credit for both the concept and the actuality) opened last month with a stunning exhibit by Glyph Graves – truly phenomenal. I mentioned it here and I do hope you saw it.
Friday, July 10, 2009, the second exhibit opens at IBM 3 (slurl IBM 3 (55, 50, 23)), Bryn Oh’s The Rabbicorn. “The Rabbicorn tells the melancholy origin story of the title character, an original robotic being in the Bryn Oh universe. The Rabbicorn exists in a world of poetic narrative, subtle ambient sound and beautiful visual artistry, part Gorey, part Poe, part Velveteen Rabbit, but with an original take that is uniquely contemporary, and uniquely Bryn.” Andrew’s post has more details about Bryn’s style and technique. I urge you to click through and read it.
I am including the publicity photos, courtesy of Bryn Oh and Andrew. Thank you both very much for providing/sharing the photos.
I was totally blown away by the first exhibit. Jaymin and I had a wonderful time exploring that together. I cannot wait for tomorrow night to see Bryn Oh’s work and lose myself in the art and the story. Ping me and let’s explore this exhibit together. It’s more fun with friends. *grin* Always.
