Art in Second Life 2021 (87) “One Day” by Dido Haas

I got am invitation fom Dido Haas to see her exhibtion “One Day“. It is shown at the main part of Nitroglobus gallery, which is owned and curated by Dido Haas herself. It is a great exhibtion space, the mirroring effect of the floor adds a lot to the experience of a visit and highlights the art in a particular way. And this time it is used to display her own art.

In the accompanying notecard your find a poem from Edmund Spencer named Amoretti LXXV and the first verse is also displayed at one of the walls at the gallery:

One day I wrote her name upon the strand.
but came the waves and washed it away;
Again I wrote it with a second hand,
but came the tide and made by pains his pray

‘Vain man’ said she,’that dost in vain assay,
A mortal thing so to immortalize;
For I myself shall like to this decay,
And eke my name be wiped out likewise.’

‘Not so,’ (quod I) ‘let baser things devise
To die in dust, but you shall live by fame:
My verse your vertues rare shall eternize,
And in the heavens write your glorious name:
Where whenas death shall all the world subdue,
Our love shall live, and later life renew.’

Dido is quite busy with curating the Nitroglobus gallery and has little time left to make photos herself. But sometimes when she’s in the right she makes some, most of them are black/white and portraits or avatar studies.
Dido Haas is Dutch and has been in SL for way over 14 years – and according to herself, she is still enjoying this virtual world.

The showcased pictures pictures are a selection of a few portraits and avatar studies and some pictures of beaches that are quite minimalistic and make you focus on the details. Dido has developed clearly an own style and understands how to draw the spectator into her world, her pictures.

The exhibition space with the mirroring floor provides a particular experience for displaying art. Dido also adds 3D sculptures here and there in the center as an additional eye catcher. For her exhibtion “One Day” Suzanne Graves donated her sculpture ‘Shake our Troubles’ for display at the gallery.

Thank you Dido for all the work you invest into the Nitroglobus Roof Gallery and for your own art. I enjoyed my visit. The exhibtion “One Day” will be open until September 23rd, hence just another week, so you’ll have to hurry to see it.
