Opening ALEA FUKUSHIMA



Whaaahh! - what a great opening it was, on Sunday the 3rd.
I must admit i was quite nervous. I feared about the circular moving floor around the rods pool, i thought it would never make it, when we would pass more than 20 avatars on the sim.
Then came Eupalinos with his large Wurlitzer organ as avatar (becoming soon even a donkey). These things must weight more than 800 pounds!
I had to correct the floor prim twice, on-the-fly, i hope no-one saw that :)

How are we looking at the paintings of Mark Rothko these days?
Is he old hat, replaced in America by more contemporary concerns? Looking at his minimal canvases and their enticing floating squares of subdued paint live at the MOMA recently, I had to stop to wonder whether he still communicates to a modern and younger audience.
Wahooart.com, the site that sells good canvas prints to order from their database of digital images, has many Rothko prints. I ordered this one, Blue and grey, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWU7F
, that I have now hanging in my study. I can spend a long time looking at this elusive image that takes me to some other place not in this world.
