Art in Second Life 2020 (24) Social Distancing by Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost

Yesterday I got an invitation from Cica Ghost who has opened her newest art work that she created together with Bryn Oh: Social Distancing. I went there right the next day, May 7th, 2020.

The landing is at Bryn Oh’s sim Immersiva in a box that is also the starting point when visiting Bryn Oh’s installation “Hand”. There’s a board for “Social Distancing” that leads to a platform, where you find Cica’s and Bryn’s installation “Social Distancing“.

The theme of “Social Distancing” is of course the current situation most of us are suffering of right now, the Corona virus. But it is done in the typcial Cica way, conjuring a smile in everybody’s face nonetheless – at least in mine. The Cica houses have become small in comparision to humans. One person occupies one house and they keep distance from eachother. Homing pigeons carry the messages between the people. In the background you hear chimes and voices saying “hello”. The scene is installed in a dark forest, you wade mostly through knee deep water if you don’t use the paths that are made of stones. The houses are on hills at a clearing.

And of course there are Corona viruses, the Corona Monsters. They are big and don’t look really nice, no wonder that the humans stay at home! Nonetheless the scene is not scary though. On the water you also find a read canoe, made for social distancing. You can purchase the items used for creating “Social Distancing” at a Gatcha for 80 L$, and if you’re lucky you get the canoe.

Anything else? Yes, I saw no Cica cat :-(. And try to sit in one of the two empty houses and become a part of the community.

I enjoyed my visit and I like how Cica and Bryn have transformed our current situation into Second Life. Thank you both for this piece of art.
