Great Second Life Art Installations: Mistero Hifeng's Violently Beautiful Art at LEA 29



I found artist Mistero Hifeng's art installation at LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) 29 strangely compelling and beautiful at the same time. Many of the sculptures are either at war with each other or mourning the violence that has occurred. Other art pieces such as the heads above seem to be decomposing as to withdraw from the scene.


The artist has written the following about the work:

"Taking a picture is like portraying a part of my inner self, I do this in my real life and in Second Life too, trying to capture moments that give me a thrill, hoping that everyone watching my works will feel the same emotions.

The recommended Windlight settings add much to the exhibit; restful blue seems right for the violence that the sculptures below depict:

Sky: "[TOR] NIGHT - Bright blue horizon" / Water: "Default" .

This is a unique art installation and recommended-- but be prepared to look over your shoulder just to make sure that some of the art will not try chasing you down after you visit:
