I spend Saturday afternoon exploring LEA 9 as it hosts a Bryn Oh Retrospective. Bryn Oh is one Secondlife’s well-known artist, and I have followed her work since I discovered her and the SecondLife art scene in 2009.
I love Bryn Oh, her poems, her stories and her work in SL. SL being what it is – virtual and constantly evolving – Bryn Oh often makes machinima of her installation. Her machinima work has been – and still is – a great inspiration to me. Her tone and her mood always gets me completely. So I recommend that you go to LEA9 and spend an afternoon there. It is amazing and so much fun to see her work, read her stories and see her machinima.
