Solidarity exhibition

schoondamme

 

Already another high light in our recent virtual anti-GAS campaign. The Amsterdam based 3D artist Friep Wilbers established a temporary protest exhibition at the village-sandbox of Schoondamme.

Ohh my god! Schoondamme of all places, the most immaculate Dutch sim you can imagine, always tidy always clean cut, just waiting until the businessmen and marketeers come back to Secondlife (which is not going to happen). Why Schoondamme… well maybe just because all the Dutch visitors are walking around alienated and amazed by the boredom dripping from the clean facades. Maybe Schoondamme Netherlands is just the ideal spot to fit in the model of a sleeping island on the verge of being washed away by the sea.

Maybe that’s why we need sims like Schoondamme after all, it gives us a feeling of vertigo.
