“Mindstorm” by Bamboo Barnes

Opening party with music by Bsukmet Imniali

IMAGOLand – Gallery 3 Teleport

“which I have been working for as a series for a few years.

When you are feeling low, isolated, misunderstood.
Look at your disturbed soul pretending it’s never hurts,
the ocean of the pain’s roar to sweep all the goodness from you so you can feel the bottom.
Like the wind & the tide, there are no keys to open the sea, keep you face over the surface to keep the breath.
When the sun’s up your skin is dry, start feel it’s in the past, then the life goes on, there’s another day.

Don’t know what will come tomorrow, beneath the surface there is mindstorm.

Wish the best for you.
Bamboo Barnes

Bamboo Barnes Bio

Self–taught artist, creating digital art in virtual worlds (Second life) since 2011

I began making images in Second life in 2011 with avatar screenshots. Seeing 3D installation works in SL in 2013 changed my art-making path completely, as I fell in love with them. Since then, I am on my way. After 10 years I am still making images in the metaverse of SL as an artist, I am learning and developing everyday:

Art is never finished, just abandoned.
The artworks in this exhibit are about my emotions which aren’t clear to see. I hope that you will see something in them for you. Life goes on.
” Bamboo Barnes

Bamboo Barnes wishes to thank:

Haveit Neox , Theda Tammas, Livio Korobase, JadeYu Fhang, Cherry Manga, Rebeca Bashly, Giovanna Cerise, Bryn Oh , Mistero Hifeng and all other 3D installation artists. Your artworks make me stay in Second life.
Thank you to all the gallery owners and curators for your endless patience and support.
