A mystery solved! Like so many others I was in awe of AMR's virtual art, tho i never met him in avatar form. fascinating to learn that his rl art has such a similar look and feel. Recalling those amazing installations makes me smile and it's gr8 to learn AMR is happy and succeeding irl. I hope he comes back ... one day.

Thanks, and that's a lovely write-up on Polygon — Ebbe Linden stopped by The Far Away a little while ago after reading it.

Here's a better link to the images (and many others):

(And, by the way, AM has been back inworld a little more frequently of late, most recently a couple weeks back, so it's possible to catch him from time to time.)

I hope he comes back for good and creates another awesome piece!

Hey Hamlet, that was a fabulous piece, congrats and thank you!

This choked me up because it was so true:
"And then amid all that, often by accident or via word of a friend, players come across a work by AM Radio. And the light itself seems to change — the outside cacophony is forgotten."

He left because he ran out of spaces to put his wheat.
