NYC


Artist Cao Fei created a city within the online game Second Life. A six minute video is projected in a reflecting pool and in the back a 25 minute video of the artist's avatar having a relationship with another avatar. As one may expect from shifting identities and alternate lives, it's quite wistful (the NY Times calls it haunting.) The show is called "RMB City" showing at the Chelsea art gallery, Lombard-Freid Projects.
