Art in Second Life 2022 (4) Mindscapes by Moki Yuitza

I visisted the January exhibition at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery, which will be opened officially with an event tonight, January 10th, at noon (12 PM SLT / 9 PM CET). It features Moki Yuitza with her exhibtion called “Mindscapes”. The exhibtion consists of 13 pictures.

Moki wrote about “Mindscpaes”:
SL is a virtual world in which everything is possible …. space is a mathematical/mental construction in which anything can be realized … as long as we can conceive it. When I was young, I loved building everything that went through my head with colored bricks, and here in SL I used the same basic bricks that I had available to give substance to my mental spaces.
Landscapes, formed just with simple prims, in which avatars (we ourselves) move around and to which avatars give body and dimension. One is meaningless without the other.

The decoration of the exhibition space reflects the elements that you see in Moki’s pictures: spheres, cubes, pyramides, triangels, etc. As I know already from my many visits to the Nitroglobus Roof Gallery the showcased pictures are presented very well by the mirroring effect of the floor. The mirroring effect is made by having a transparent floor and placing the pictures mirrored on the floor below. For the exhibtion “Mindscapes” a lot of the decoration elements, the coloured spheres, cubs, pyramides and others are also under the floor, hence you are literally surrended my Moki’s coloured bricks.

Some pictures build pairs, one showing the a couple in front of or surrounded by the different bricks that form an own structured building or geometrial form, in the correspondent picture Moki placed the couple or only their hands in the foreground and the structure(s) in the background. What you see or perceive is all a question of the perspective or of your standpoint. As intended one can loose oneself in the structured mindspace – mind escape – mindscape. Quite facinating and artful!

Moki Yuitza is in Second Life for over 13 years. I came across her several times lately seeing quite different art from her. I saw Geomorphism at DixMix Gallery in December 2020 (read here), CELLS at The Sim Quarterly in March 2021 (read here) and Genesis at DixMix Gallery (read here).
Moki wrote about herself: “In RL I am an architect and in this metaverse I found the possibility to realize my idea of ​​space and my architectural fantasy, as well as to share it with other people.” (taken from the accompaniny notecard.
Moki has also a flickr account and an own website.

Nitroglobus Roof Gallery is owned and curated by Dido Haas. She has a separete room at the gallery to showcase her own art, the main room is mostly dedicated to feature other artists.
Thank you, Dido for providing the space for the art and for enabling the exhibition “Mindscapes” by Moki Yuitza, which will be open for the public throughout January 2021. And thank you Moki for your great artwork. I enjoyed my visit.
