“If the world were clear, art would not exist.”
-Jorge Luis Borges
Artists absorb the world around them. Their environments, that
which they can feel and touch and see – and that which they can’t. Sometimes that which they can only dream of. They absorb it and translate it into a language that affects us all in some way.
This project is a study of translations. I presented 25 artists within Second Life with a concept of creating art with these words in mind: Drowning. Melting. Polar bears. Arctic. Culpability. Corporate greed. Inevitability. Extinction.
What they have done is breathtaking and beyond any realm of my expectations.
Welcome to Melt – Please explore and involve yourself in this temporary world created here. Interact with it, wear it, enjoy it and immerse yourself in it.
Melt is only open March 6 – March 21,
