Art in Scond Life 2021 (16) “Mind the Gap” by Awesome Fallen

I got an invitation for the opening of “Mind the Gap” by Awesome Fallen at the White Pavillon of The Itakos Project and Art Gallery. I went there the other day.

“Mind the Gap” is about “the “difference”, which divides us but which is also a great opportunity for sharing and enrichment.” It concerns all areas of life, “between male and female, between peoples, ethnic groups, religions, where you can observe the differences, feel the disparities, suffer from disagreement.” This dichotomy is “always present in the individual, is possible in every person” – and we should accept it.

“see difference”
“feel disparity”
“find divergence”
“fight depression”
“accept diversity”

I did not come across Awesome Fallen so far. She’s in SL for 11 years and her profile does not give away much of her: “…… just another wave in the ocean …….”. Awesome has a flickr page tough with a lot of followers and I can understand why. Every single picture shown at The Itakos Project and Art Gallery is intriguing, invites you to take a closer look and to comprehend what Awsome wants to express or to make up your own story to the picture. As much as “Mind the gap” is about difference between people, even within a single person or even within ourself, it also showcases a broad variety of styles and artistic possibilities of expression.

There’s also a short promo video featuring “Mind the gap” by Awesome Fallen (2 min)
