Nothing really seems permanent.
Sometimes there is a moment in life when we realize that something has changed in our life.
Theda, experience that moment as she had to give up her RL artwork because her life had changed.
And because she’s a strong, smart, and capable person, she has found ways to make a new direction meaningful for her.
I am sure it took some time, but when we think of all the positive aspects that emerged from this situation, we can only sincerely congratulate her on bringing the light out of the situation.
On April 20, 2007, Theda logged into Second Life for the first time and found the “window” to vent her mind.
Theda has transformed her experience and deep love for sculpture by RL into her second life.
Always guided by strong feelings and memories, things that moved and inspired her.
Theda’s works are “alive”, have “soul” and each of her installations is a masterpiece full of gorgeous colors and expresses the beauty of deep feelings.
Theda is an artist with the ability to make feelings palpable in her works for the viewer.
As she said; many people think that her art work often expresses sadness.
Theda’s art works are associated with colors, animations and forms that fantastically reflect emotions, and as we all know, one of the strongest emotions is sadness.
Moved by Thedas personality and art work, it is always worthwhile to pause for a moment to experience and enjoy all the colors, shapes and feelings in her work.
Your life without art would be …
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Theda: Memories of feelings experienced, something I saw and moved me.
What is your work about?
Theda: I try to show what touches me, giving soul to my work. Most of the time I talk about myself. Many people say its sad what I do, but sadness is not a bad thing in my view, maybe I am still looking for something I did not found yet. Also, I am RL frustrated artist, had to give up making RL art because of life. So SL gives me the window to vent my thoughts.
How is the artistic process like there? Do you see an object / person / landscape first and then the idea comes up? Or is it upside down?
Theda: When I listen, see or feel something I try to make it visible, transforming it in an art piece.
