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.
