the artist The artist appreciates the freedom in a virtual environment.
His paints never run out, his hands are never dirty, except in his
imagination. He creates 3-dimensional structures which must be viewed
from a specific virtual viewpoint in order to see the final work. The
artist enjoys the way he can break up an object into a seemingly
random arrangement. The beaty, for the artist, is that the seeming
randomness is not so. The object is broken according to the feelings
of the artist. The viewer is not told how to view the piece. By
examining it and by understanding the mind of the artist, the viewer
may find the correct position. This search forces him to make a
journey through the artist's mind, through the emotions that went into
the construction of the piece.
the art As above.
In reference to more personal information on the artist, he leaves his
artwork haphazardly in the Net. He does this because inside he desires
companionship while outside he feigns solidarity in introvertedness. He
tests the world and wants them to follow him through his art, while
keeping a safe distance in order to protect his world. His art is his
connection to the world at large.
the beret The artist's hat is characterized by his emotions, it being a virtual
hat. If the artist is happy, the hat may be yellow or orange, a jesters
cap perhaps. If the artist is sad, a woolen hat which can be pulled to
cover the eyes. The hat has no physical representation outside the Net.
The hat changes constantly, minute to minute, second to second. The
artist wears his emotions as a hat for the hat is easy to hide. The
artist, if discovered, may slip the hat into his virtual pocket, hiding
his hat while it tries to betray his feelings.
