[DREAM] LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD – AVATAR RUSTED HEART

Avatar Rusted Heart

Avatar “Rusted Heart” (by Noke Yuitza; photocredit Alpha Auer)

This avatar is the Rusted Heart, one of the characters in “Love is a Battlefield”, my surreal cyberpunk art installation for The Museo del Metaverso (in Craft Virtual World). These damaged hearts in battle are taken by Drones Collectors under the watch of the Great Collector. But, why is it collecting rusted hearts?

The Rusted Heart Avatar is an exclusive item for Fantasy Fair 2015 that you only will be able to get in the Auction. You can wear it as avatar or use it as decoration for your place. 100% of the sale of this item will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Watch a preview of Love is a Battlefield from min. 3:07 to 3:34:

Why I Relay?

My grandma passed away at the beginning of this year due lung cancer. She had it for years, but It was too late when doctors visit her. She was not a smoker, as her sister, that also died due lung cancer a year before. She was born into difficult times and suffer the Spanish civil war. She was of the type of never complain due pain. And she was my family pillar.

I was raised by her. I came to life with her 2 years ago, when we knew she had cancer. We born same day, same month, but in a different era.

In my first incursions with science communication using Second Life, I had the pleasure to organize some debates and lectures about cancer, from a research and social point of view. I’ve never forget the words of the patient that came to talk about her experience, about how is to live with cancer and about the importance for patients to be treated with normality.

One never think how important is until it touch one… but I believe in people’s power to change things and turn them into wonders. Just taking action. We are not as alone as we think 😉

I guess this is why I relay.

I want “to see an end to the heartache this devastating disease cause”, as Duchess Flux says.

If you have a rusted heart, be careful with the drone collectors ;)…

Some days ago the MdM (Museo del Metaverso) reopened in Craft with some cool artists coming from Second Life and Hypergrid. You can visit its website to see some photos and get the Land Marks-taxi and I recommend to you to click in”Artists” in the main menu cause the list its the huge enough to don’t display the entire submenu of artists in all screens.

Mine is the following one: Love is a Battlefield. In my line of dreaming the future with some surreal cyberpunk style, I’ve created some drones collecting rusted hearts. It’s inside my DREAM saga, as you will recognize by one of its characters. There are 3: the rusted hearts, the drone collectors and the great collector. You can turn yourself in one of the characters, the rusted heart, and be part of the installation by getting the avatar as gift at the shop of the MdM.

Some extra data: my avatar during the MdM opening was the drone collector carrying a heart. The drone is my ALEGRIA Dream Mask that you saw in La Metallique Fair, The Sea of Cubic Dreams during the performances and these days in ArtFest’15 in Second Life.

Enjoy 😉
