Phantoms of Absence Creates Real Emotion in Second Life

I did a quick visit to the inworld presence of  Musei di Roma Capitale (MiC)↑ this morning. I had trouble leaving the landing spot because it (and their windlight setting) is so pretty but the point of the trip was to visit “Phantoms of Absence”.  Something you should do!

This is a stunning, haunting and interactive work of art by Blue Tsuki (at least that’s the creators’s name, this is an artist unfamiliar to me).  Take the teleport from the landing area and then walk toward the light.

Start by sitting on the blue chairs around the perimeter and then anything else you find.  Something magical happens each time you do.  Finish off in the center of the space. I’m not going to explain much of what you will see – I think it’s better that you enjoy the discovery for yourself.

I had no idea what to expect from this installation so let me warn you:  if you’ve lost somebody, or are even just missing someone, this will be a very personal and emotional experience.  I was touched and saddened and very moved by “Phantoms of Absence”↑.  I highly recommend a visit.
