Tell me a Story — RL exhibition

“Tell me a story” is an installation in Second Life by Meilo Minotaur (Sameiro Oliveira Martins) that calls for the participation of the visitors.

Contrary to what is usual, in which the image helps to illustrate a story, Meilo Minotaur asked Second Life users to tell a story that linked the various scenes of her digital 3D installation.

Users responded with pictures, videos and written stories. We now present you some of that content — the conceptions of a creative public, able to appropriate the work of art as art flow in an age of creative distribution.

You can listen to the stories in the headphones, each story is associated with a color. In the wall you can see several pictures of the virtual installation, threads of color course through the pictures, linking them to the verbal stories.

Everything can be connected, anything can become something else. The illustration can become the illustrated or the other way around.

Everything opens to a new creation.

From May 4th to 28th July at CRUgaleria, Porto, Portugal.
