A good day today. Over 6 miles walked, which covered a LOT of the Hub City. The town of my youth is much different than I remember. (Although Newbury Comics still is “a wicked good time”!)
The first trek of the day was to check out The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston. A nice place, with a number of fine works that demonstrated the creativity that can happen when you use tools beyond oils and watercolors. Worth the price of admission.
At the same time, I was looking at these unique pieces of art and asking myself, “Where’s the virtual world art? Where’s the machinima? Where are the SL photography displays?”
It’s a nice museum, indeed, but the curators are about half a step behind that which is truly contemporary. There’s a whole new medium out there, and that medium makes up the Second Arts.
