Art in Second Life 2020 (85) Moki Yuitza – Geomorphism

I visited “Geomorphism”, an installation by Moki Yuitza at the art platform of DixMix Gallery.

Geomorphism is an art intallation using a lot of light effects. You should set your windlight to midnight for seeing it correctly. Geomorphism is set up in a cube. In the center is a big tree. All walls are covered with sort of geometrical forms – and they are permanently changing. The main light effect is in white and is topped with a kind of aurea borealis. Hence you get a lot of different impressions, depending where you look at, at what time, from what viewing angle.

But there is more than that, there are several smaller trees that are decorated with spheres, there are flowers on the ground and grass …. and all is mainly in white. The light effects are amazing and my pictures have become an artwork themselves, unique, not reproducable.

Moki Yuitza is in Second Life for over 12 years. I came across her twice so far. One time in 2019 when she was participating in an exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read here) and one time when I visited an installation of her at LEA 19 “Hypercube – labyrinth of the mind” in 2018 (read here).
Moki has had a lot more exhibtions and installations, that I missed though. Well you can’t see all and everything in Second Life *winks*. Moki’s profile is full of installations of her that are gone in the meanwhile. The virtual world is even more short-lived than the physical world.

I found this about Moki from a notecard for La Maison d’Aneli: “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.” That does fit to Geomorphism at DixMix Gallery as well.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing to it, and last but not least thank you Moki Yuitza for your installation. I enjoyed my visit.
“Moki Yuitza – Geomorphism” will stay open for visitors at least until end of Jan 2021.
