Second Life

Textile Futures Research Group now have an island in Second Life. The island is an experiment in staging a collaborative exhibition in a virtual gallery.
It is possible to walk (or fly) around the island to visit the exhibits and view them from any angle (or height). Alongside each exhibit is an information point (spinning 'i') that takes you to the artists website for further information about the work. The works that I visited included pieces by Rachel Wingfield, (pink column, above left) Polly Kenny, Kay Politowicz and Francis Geesin.
The island can be visited at various times of day and it is interesting to see how different some of the exhibits look in different lights.
