"I Heard a Fly Buzz" An Art Installation by Penumbra Carter
I'd missed the party yesterday, a sort of mid exhibition event at the Art'e Gallery at the East River Community, Helvellyn region. The installation titled "I Heard a Fly Buzz", opened on June 23rd and will run through to September 23rd. If you've seen any of her work before,you won't be disappointed her, she is a very creative and talented artist builder. A note card at the installation reveals that her inspiration for the install was from a poem by Emily Dickinson's poem entitled "I Heard a Fly Buzz When I Died". Pen explains in the note that, "The irony is being able to write about what you experience after you die. Flies are symbols of the fleeting of life. I have used eggs as the idea that they contain the goo of life and poppies to suggest forever. The rest is how I combine these thoughts in my head and realize them here in SL." Always worth a stop over to see what thoughts she has realized in Second Life.
