For the past few months I have been traveling and creating art within the virtual world. Using photographs I have taken of avatars (virtual simulation of a human figure) I digitally alter the photos to create surreal works of art with an abstract feel. The images have a misty and shadowy quality with hidden faces and figures.
Avatar faces in the virtual world do not show emotion and while the avatar may not be "real," the person behind the avatar is, with real feelings and thoughts, and real experiences of sorrow and joy. Mysteriously, these emotions are captured in the images you see.
The virtual world is exploding with creativity. I want my part of that creativity to be about capturing and presenting these characters' images and souls to the real world, and doing it in an interesting and beautiful way.
