Due to the chaos of life I am kind of on a Neil Gaimen approach to second Life these days.
“Have been unavoidably detained by the world.
Expect us when you see us.”
― Neil Gaiman, Stardust

The Berg is featuring
a wonderful Black and white Photo series
by Imani Naynar
I found this exhibit to be beautifully sensual with deep warmth of expression that draws you in.
“step by step I realized that taking pics changed the way that I saw things. I suddenly saw things I never noticed before. Everything was different when I started to see the world as a photographer … light, colors, textures, shapes, perspectives … and even emotions.” Taken from Imani’s bio at the exhibit.
You can see more of her work on her Flickr
The Berg is also featuring “Mechanismus”
Wow this exhibit is huge and a bit intense.
Make sure you read the Mechanismus bio and accompanying note card.
The depth and scope of this build makes you think!
“MECHANISMUS is a metaphorical story about symbiosis of human and technology from the beginning of both entities till the present day.
Since the moment when primates grabbed rocks and sticks to fight for their survival till today, both entities grew, one pushing another and being pulled to advance by other one.
Present day is culmination of that symbiosis and it brings merging of this two in to completely new entity, some would say unnatural but… is it?
We all lean on technology so much this days that we would not be able even to survive without it which without doubt proves merging with it to some degree.
Often in talks with other people I sense repulsion and even disgust at idea of us and technology becoming one being and it reminds me how much humans need this “stick to your kind” behavior. I find that way of thinking racist.
Face it, superhuman is coming, like it or not.”
