Personalizing the Miniature Goal in Second Life

I’m being a little fanciful in my thoughts this morning. They make perfect sense, and will probably continue to do so, at least until I’ve had enough coffee.

You see things keep happening in the physical space around me which, according to the one involved in most of them, defy explanation. In terms of cause and effect, I think Haveit Neox↑ may have found the true source of the problem.

Hav builds cities, they have streets and hidden corners and people. They also have a purpose. His newest exhibit opened this weekend at Quan Lavender’s↑ fabulous gallery, Art India↑.

His premise is that we don’t experience the damage we’re doing to the planet on a personal level. At least the vast majority of us don’t. Our homes and communities remain untouched. But what if they didn’t?

What if everytime we as a species destroyed part of the planet, or caused more irreversible damage, our homes shrank? Our actions and their consequences would become much more personal.

Yesterday I heard a call from the kitchen. I entered a room full of smoke to be told that “There’s something wrong with the microwave.” My reply, in an impressively calm tone, was that “It might have something to do with the fact that it’s on fire.”

As I cleaned up yet another example of what happens when a 92 year old hits the wrong buttons, AND multi-tasks, I decided that Hav might be on to something.

I now choose to believe that every time somebody clearcuts a rainforest, or renders a species extinct, my living space will experience some kind of smoke-related incident. There is no other way to explain the number of times beets boil dry on the stove. So knock it off already!
