A Thousand Words

“A Thousand Words” is a collaborative Second Life photography project dedicated to expression through creative imagery. For our inaugural exhibition, Second Life residents created photographs inspired by renowned poet Pablo Neruda’s “Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.”

In our in-world exhibition, the photographs are laid out in chronological order, so please follow the cobblestone path through the forest. We highly recommend utilizing shared environment, enabling advanced lighting in graphics and toggling media at each poem area (to hear the poem being read aloud) to fully appreciate the immersive experience.

The participating photographers are: A. Frith, Adam Cayden, Ara Dethly, Bambi, Callie Hamelin, Chris, Ella Pavlona, Ethan Lane, Grace Ashwell, Hilaire Beaumont, June Fallon, Lam Erin, Lilt Chan, Murdock, Oceane Atheria, Pedro, Sare, Talula Shippe, Taylor Wassep, Trouble Dethly, Velvet Bunny and Wicca Merlin.

Additionally, we will have an opening Gala on November 6, 2021 from 12PM SLT – 2PM SLT with live musicians.

Out of all the things i have done in Second Life, this has to be one of the things I am proudest of. I am so grateful for all the photographers who participated, especially June and Taylor for helping me turn the venue for the Exhibition into a reality in this virtual world. I have always enjoyed the photos that told a story or conveyed an emotion. Each of the images does that. I actually was not planning on doing a supplementary photo book, but the exhibition is only up for 3 weeks, at least this way the work is still remembered. I will likely post my photo for the project in the next couple of days. Until then, I have a few more things on my to do list to check off.
