[About this building]
The Japanese Pop-style exhibit that have many statues of happy and cute figures of various looks (racial, etc.). It's about relationships of people from around the world without limits or handicaps.

[The concept]
People are often inhibited by numerous limits and handicaps, such as their appearance, gender, or age. In envisioning a better future, it makes sense to try to address this issue. In Second Life, people can push aside some of the obstacles that trouble them in real life and live, work, and develop relationships in a freer environment. It's the vision of a better future materialized in Second Life today. This is the magic of Second Life.

Decorama - Mikati Slade Artwork

Societies shape people's identities. Modern societies have become more and more consumption-centric. As a result, modern identities have become consumption-centric too.

But the world is changing. Economic malaise and natural catastrophies, like those of Japan, are changing our societies. And, as societies change, so do our identities.

This Japanese-Pop style artwork attempts to show that the modern consumption society is changing and people's identities are shifting toward new directions.
