Mind Factory

Mind FactoryWe revisited today the Mind Factory, a gallery by Sina Souza. This is a gallery that has been up and running for a while, as far as I know since Sina started producing art in Second Life which I believe was in 2012. She has exhibited widely all over the grid since then. I love this place. It is created by Zazou and an excellent choice for display of larger works like these; airy space, beams, cement, metal staircases, sturdy spotlights, small center-pool and cracked ceilings and windows. I haven’t seen this building used as a gallery before, as we know we often see prefabs used by various venues for the same thing; there is a sense of this place being original.


The pictures by Sina are all mind-blowing. Large surfaces, powerful images, strong messages. These photographs are nothing like we have seen in Second Life before; Sina’s work is immediately recognizable as hers. She shows her work outside of Second Life as well and is presently exhibiting the School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago together with Philip Mallory Jones and Shirley Hunt. Check out the Sina Souza website for more photographs. I’m happy to announce here also that Sina Souza will be showing her work at Berg by Nordan Art from October to December 2015. Please be on the lookout for announcements.
