The great Second Life artist Bryn Oh has announced that she will be closing her long-running interactive installation "The Singularity of Kumiko" in a few weeks. Make sure to see this fascinating work if you have not yet done so. Bryn Oh follows a successful formula with this installation that she has used before for other works 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 art, and contribute to the dark atmosphere which her psychological tales require.
Your taxi to the exhibit:
You can catch my complete original review of the installation and more photography here:
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 that opens the exhibit.
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.
