Blowin' in the Wind

Ahhhh, the wind... that oft forgot, yet ever present element of Second Life... as persistent as the sun and moon (or the lag). What if the wind could be the force behind art? A magnificent piece of artwork in Harmonia by Edo Autopoiesis titled "Resonating with Second Life Wind" captures the energy and harmony contained within SL's invisible air molecules. A grid of windmills translates the potential energy of the metaverse's ceaseless winds into the kinetic energy of movement and sound that resonates above the clouds. Pictures don't even come close to doing justice to this gem—a firsthand visit is a must... —Sunn Thunders
