Strawberry Holiday' sends us on our journey

It was a pretty invitation... luminous, with sweet particle stars.

"On Their Journeys" by Strawberry Holiday - which opened today - is a girlish, diaphanous installation that encourages daydreaming. Teleport directly from here.

The pathways are interactive... you might be enveloped in a translucent cloud, or see the steps twinkle beneath your feet.

Her "fractal trees" will surely please fiddling Flickrites as much as they did me. I don't have PhotoShop... yet... but this is one place that begs playfulness with the resulting photographs.

Here is the raw pic... Heh, as you can see, I still have a looong way to go before I can call myself a photographer.

The colors, particularly from this perspective, made me think that we need a recreation of Monet's garden at Giverny in Second Life.

In a few weeks, "On Their Journeys" is expected to join other interactive art at the much anticipated opening exhibition for the new NMC Aho Museum, curated by our very own Tayzia Abattoir.
