La Grande Astrazione Celeste

La Grande Astrazione Celeste

The MiC (Musei di Roma Capitale) in SL is a remarkable place that often has cutting edge work. There are currently two incredible installations. One is a series of remarkable dioramas by nessuno Myoo — tributes to favorite horror writers: Poe, Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, R.L. Stevenson. I love nessuno’s work. It’s very expressive, and this show is appropriately dark, but has elements of humor if only because the figures are rendered somewhat abstractly in prims.

The other show is perhaps one of the best things I’ve ever seen in SL. The amazing Merlino Mayo has recreated and interpreted in grand 3D scale a series of paintings from the rl show “La Grande Astrazione Celeste” featuring work by Chinese artists at MACRO Testaccio, a contemporary art museum in Rome. Merlino has not merely duplicated the pieces, but made them into immersive environments, utterly faithful to the originals, yet somehow given even more depth. I won’t describe the pieces here. I just urge everyone to go see this beautiful work.
