IBM 3 is hosting a beautiful, haunting sim created by Bryn Oh, called The Rabbicorn. Told in ten pieces, you teleport from one triorama to the next until you reach the stunning conclusion, each scene growing in complexity, delivering a part of the poem before revealing your next teleport point. The main character of the story is, as the title suggests, a rabbit, but a mechanical one with a music box-like roller growing out of its back. As the main character in the story, its journey of discovery, love found and lost and found again is purely evocative, beginning in simple settings surrounded by darkness (it helps to have Midnight setting) until you get to the final stages where you must climb a fairly difficult stairway to reach the next-to-last teleporter.
During one of the final stages you are referred to a blip.tv page (given below) to watch a 10-minute machinima that tells the story of “The Daughter of Gears,” who is the love gained in the final station of the exhibit. It is an amazing work of art that you should take some time to view, using your cam to move around to change your perspectives on the 3-D scenes and immerse yourself in the story. It is strongly suggested that you do not bring a large group to view this exhibit and that is wise.
I invite you to view a Flickr group dedicated to the IBM exhibit as well as my Photobucket collection. But please, please! It’s a three-dimensional feast and these 2D photos don’t convey the experience of walking into and around the scenes.
Bryn Oh shows us there are few limits to creativity in SL!
