Hi Amalthea!

Thanks for mentioning the Not Possible IRL group. While the group is limited to serious content creators only, others can benefit from our findings by visiting our blog at http://npirl.blogspot.com.

Loved your piece on the top 10 art installations and never forget that there is still so much more for us to see and explore. In particular, I plan to make a bee-line TP to Keystone Bouchard's Reflexive Architecture, and finally finally see DanCoyote's work. The discovery never ends...

Yeah! I'm glad to see Edo there. Sweet stuff. JY


Juria - I really loved your Blink installation (http://youtube.com/watch?v=OusYDN2Da8g). It would have definitely made the top 10 had it been a permanent show. If you ever put it down anywhere, do let me know :)

This was a nice idea, to give more reporting space to the art scene - and the top 10 list is full of really amazing works by very talented people.

However, I can't help but feel that - as so many were inevitably overlooked - a rank ordered list is perhaps not the best way to do this?

Perhaps it's just me? - rather I would love to see this becoming a regular feature, each week highlighting a single work and its merits - than standing the works up in a list *against* each other...

Either way, thanks.


I'm actually considering a more regular feature and it has been very hard to compose this list - rank, as you may well realize, is very subjective here.
In the end, I put this list together for newcomers to SL - a must see list of the art scene. There are tons of other amazing places being built every day though and I am definitely planning on writing about new installations and giving more detailed coverage. Thanks a lot for weighing in, Robbie :)

That's brilliant news Thea, please do keep up the good work! - It is much apreciated.
