Wind, water and Windlight – Glyph’s dancing strangers

Strangers Also Dance is an exhibition of the  ‘Interactive Work’ of  Glyph Graves and it finishes today (July 15, 2009). IBM provided the exhibition space on their public island IBM 2, and  Glyph took full advantage of the space generously given to him. He also took full advantage of  the Second Life elements of wind, water and Windlight.  It seemed particularly appropriate to don the gelatinous fronds of Flea Bussy’s jellyfish avatar to visit this fantastic exhibit. As I moved around the installation plants gently swayed towards my avatar or changed color, while others moved to the Second Life wind and water currents. There is strange atmosphere to the swamp with all these alien plants interacting to your avatar presence. The plant creatures summoned me to come close with hypnotic gestures and eventually I was drawn into a great moving light, or was it an organism? The creature of lights seemed to fly me through the air yet I emerged far below the sea. All wonderfully strange! For more images from the show visit the IBM Exhibition space on flickr where you can see Glyph Grave’s photos of his work.

  1. Hi Thanks for the nice words Im glad you enjoyed it.
    oh and yes I routinely take Griffin’s prims while he not looking and insert them in to my builds, he is, after all … he is my alt and has to pay his way somehow. 😉

  2. Hi Glyph and Griff! Speaking as someone with a couple of alts of my own I see alts as being the equivalent of cars. I have 2 alts, ends up being rather like having a 3 car garage! Your alt is really rather talented I must say (now I know why). The smooth movement on the flying animal’s wings was superb… enough to make the human at the keyboard proud!
