Your life without art would be …

Terrygold: Nothing would change for me, it would be my usual life.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Terrygold: I tell stories about my life; everything I see and everything around me is a source of inspiration.

What is your work about?

Terrygold: I write short stories, often about my life, but also about what I see happening under my balcony. I’ve also made ecologist exhibitions. I create whatever flows through my mind.

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?

Terrygold: It’s very simple. I write a story, then I build the scenes to take the photos. My art exhibitions are entirely created in SL (Second Life) and start by writing the story on a notecard. All the scenes are created using objects available in SL, and the photos are taken directly here, using lights, projections, and whatever our beautiful metaverse makes available. No external editing is carried out (Photoshop, AI, or other image processing programs).

Your mantra?

Terrygold: My freedom ends when it invades other people’s freedom.

Currently, the best place for you in SL?

Terrygold: I don’t travel much in SL, so I couldn’t indicate a favorite place. But it would still be a place with little concrete and a lot of nature.

A question that moves you right now…

Terrygold: Like everyone, I also have things that move me deeply, but they are personal.

Is there a work of art in your life that particularly impressed you?

Terrygold: One night, while walking through Rome, I found myself in front of the Trevi Fountain. It was lit, the square deserted. This is my most beautiful memory of art.

Was there a key experience or has the artist profession always been your dearest wish?

Terrygold: No, I’m just doing it for fun and entertainment. I’m not an artist.

What drives you?

Terrygold: The desire to say something. Often what I do annoys, but no matter, I keep going my own way.

Do you feel understood with your art?

Terrygold: Some comments make me understand that my art has been understood, while others, on the contrary, are very far from what I meant. But everyone sees different things, and I think that’s normal.

Do you think that you can make a difference with your art?

Terrygold: No, I leave the serious matters in the hands of the true artists.

Do you think that everyone is an artist?

Terrygold: We live in an era of “do-goodism” that wants us to believe that we are all equal, that everyone can do anything. In my opinion, that is not the case. For example, we have to listen to singers out of tune. Art must give emotions, and not everybody can do that.

What does the term art mean to you?

Terrygold: The field of art is very wide. We start by admiring a beautiful painting, then we get lost in the beautiful lines of a motorcycle (Ducati Panigale V4 S). Art is almost everywhere, and each person has a different sensibility to appreciate it.

Are there any topics that you are particularly interested in implementing?

Terrygold: I wish I could do more to awaken the world from this mass hypnosis created by religion.

What is your strength?

Terrygold: The freedom to say whatever I want, free from any religious subjection.

What was the best advice you have ever received in SL?

Terrygold: Never enter your password in any hyperlink.

Your next projects, exhibitions. Where can your art be seen?
