Great Second Life Destinations: A Preview of Frankx Lefavre's Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor at LEA 23



Frankx Lefavre is one of my very favorite environmental artists on Second Life. I always look forward to his brilliant installations which are often kinetic and brilliantly animated. Frankx's latest work, Serotonin Uptake Inhibitor, which is still under construction at the time of photography of this blog post, will be one of the LEA highlights of 2016. The term "serotonin uptake inhibitor" related to how modern antidepressant medications, the best known being Prozac, work within the brain.




I will conjecture that Frankx's work is his vision of what happens within the brain when serotonin does it job and allows the mind to feel suppressed pleasurable sensations.  You can brain synapses "fire" with brilliant memories. The entire work is mesmerizing, even in its non-finished state.




When visiting, make sure to enable advanced lighting to get the most out of the art installation. I found that the electronic music that was playing on the parcel to be very complimentary and enhanced my viewing experience.
