Yooma Mayo & Friends: LEA19 Hyakki Yagyou ~ Chaotic Parade

Chaotic Parade

At LEA19 thru the end of June Yooma Mayo has assembled Hyakki Yagyou ~ Chaotic Parade which is 100 “monsters” created by 25 artists. The participating artists are mostly from Kowloon. It’s an amazing, crazy, immersive earth and sky installation of wonder, diversity, and to be sure, chaos! I made a quickie little video of the space. The video seems a lot more delightful than my crummy camera skills deserve thanks to Kara Square’s wonderful CCMixter soundtrack, Carnival.

Maurizio Cattelan, All

I’m certain there’s a lot of Japanese culture & aesthetics in this installation, but being a Western girl, I couldn’t help but think of Maurizio Cattelan’s extraordinary Guggenheim installation, All, November 4, 2011–January 22, 2012. In both Chaotic Parade and All we see an enormous body of work suspended like a cosmos before us. It is impossible to take in all of either installation from a single viewpoint. You have to physically activate yourself, either in the physical space of the RL Guggenheim rotunda, or the virtually physical VR space of the SL SIM.

For me the experience of moving through these spaces is like the treat of moving through a human mind. Other than our own mind, we can only imagine what all goes on in the minds of others. When you move through Chaotic Parade, or All, it feels like a journey through a mind. It’s a remarkable and incredibly generous experience.

Only 2 Weeks Left!

Chaotic Parade is at LEA19 through the end of June. If you haven’t already visited this joyous collaboration between Yooma Mayo & friends, don’t waste any time in getting over there!

Hello everyone! As you probably know, Berry's on a much deserved vacation till the end of June. I'm certainly not Berry, but I'll help, if I can, to keep the virtual campfire here at Strawberry glowing a little bit.
