China Tracy, the avatar ego of Cao Fei, one of the coolest contemporary artists around, has made i.Mirror: a haunting, highly poetic documentary in Second Life.
Brilliant and beautiful, i.Mirror is available as a trilogy on YouTube, with each third thriving on a particular focus. It runs for a total of 30 minutes.
Part 1 is the most metaphysical and the most meta-political, with the signage of capitalism and icons of communism recurring throughout the landscapes of the sprawling linden lab metaverse.
Emotions and longing and void and myth make it unravel like an oneiric odyssey devoid of destination.
