The Vordun: a new art experience in Second Life

This is really a new art and history experience using the features Second Life has to offer. My visit was short yet very impressive.

It’s strange that among all catastrophies the mankind had to experience during the last 100 years, the Titanic still gets so much attention. Maybe it is because we know about the dreams that many of the victims carried with them seeking a new and better life.

Mine was Mrs. Rosalie Paula van Impe, a 3rd class passenger who was among the losses.
