Great Second Life Art Installations: El Laberinto Perdido by Romy Nayar


El Laberinto Perdido is a new art exhibit by Romy Nayar with sounds and scripts by Ux Hax.  The build reminded me of a castle constructed from an alien chess piece set.  Once you enter the dimly lit castle you discover that it is actually a labyrinth, with twisting stairs and moving walls - and frightening vignettes at strange corners and turns. The stairways in the distance can either be a way out of the maze, or a portal to some other impending doom.  I highly recommend that you visit.

I increased the scene light brightness a bit (gama)  to get details of the sculptural shapes within the labyrinth.
