"The Singularity of Kumiko" by the celebrated Second Life artist Bryn Oh follows a successful formula she has used before for multimedia exhibits including Anna's Many Murders and Virginia Alone. Something eventful has happened to a female protagonist, and the viewer explore a mysterious landscape to complete the story. Sound and light are integral parts of her exhibits, and contribute to the dark atmosphere which her psychological (and in many cases psychotic) tales require. "The Singularity of Kumiko" is fascinating, and will hold your interest as you explore, Highly recommended.
Specifics of the Exhibit:
You will need to be patient to see this multimedia exhibit properly. It is all part of the "fun".
Make sure to follow the instructions as you enter and install the correct Windlight settings on your computer- given as you enter.
The final light is very dark. You will need to grab and wear a headlight at the table to the left of the entrance door (there are three) to see properly.
Type the word "open" in chat to enter the red door to open the exhibit.
The exhibit only allows 15 people in at a time to reduce lag.
Make sure your master volume is set high enough to hear the sounds associated with the exhibit.
You may be "killed" by Mr. Zipper and be sent home. You will have to teleport back to the exhibit if this happens. I was killed three times.
