POP ATOMIC : 5

[Overview]

This is an our art-building titled "POP ATOMIC" at BURN2.

BURN2 (Oct.16-24,2010) is biggest festival of ART in online virtual world Second Life.

This year, theme of the festival is "Metropolis / Civilization in desert".

Too many artists having exhibitions in there and we built our artwork in there too.

The festival also have many kind of events.

 

[From the artists]

The ATOMIC bomb changed the Japanese people forever.

8-bit console games are a loving part of Japan's POP culture nowadays.

I felt that both the atomic bomb and the 8-bit consoles are powerful symbols of 20th century's civilization, at least as experienced by the Japanese people.

And, so, POP ATOMIC was born.

Enjoy it. Arigato^^ -Mikati Slade (Japan)

 

Mikati has been a long-time business partner and friend.

She talked to me about her concept for this year's Burn2 event.

I loved it and asked her if she needed any help.

Luckily she did and I contributed my part :) -Emily Lang(Greece)
