Amona's statement about the show
"Just sinking into the dreamland she wanted so much, like a relief, a wanted ending to another day. Eyes closed, her body being one with the ground, just waiting for memory to escape her. Never being conscious of the moment when she faded in from the reality into the dream.
Enjoying the lucid dreams carrying her over water, to distant cities, the encounters with strangers, just briefly discovering their secrets, dreams of dreams, each more deeper than the other.
Floating moments, more vague now, the dream slowly filling her body, making it weightless and translucent. Mirroring it in distant oceans, posed in colored rooms, wander through dream gardens, between painted walls and encounter lovers and fairies, friends and enemies.
She would just live the dream, picturing it, seek and sense it and just dwell in it, like being in another existence or a second life."
This was the dream I wanted to be in - and that I wanted to picture.
It has been a joy working with Harbor. Her obvious artistic sense and skills has been an inspiration for me and has made me challenge myself, and I hope you will notice that.
Thank you so much Morgana for your work with preparing and creating the shows for your gallery and work with us. It is very exciting for me to exhibit in your gallery.
Second Life has been a blessing for me and made me able to use my artistic skills again. Thanks to my friends in SL and in Flickr, without you this would not be as fun. And thanks to my partner, you know how much you mean to me.

Harbor's statement about the show
I've always felt that Second Life was a type of Lucid Dreaming, a world created by our fantasies and desires. A world vivid while immeresed in it yet ephmeral upon departure. A dream within a dream.
My hope was to convey that ephmeral quality of the dream state.. a vision short lived, grasped for a moment by the mind only to disappear, leaving us with a vague memory or sensation.
My many thanks to Morgana for all the work she does in creating and supporting these shows at her gallery and for her belief in my work. Thank you to Amona..who's talent makes me want to expand and push my personal horizons and last but certainly not least thank you to all who use this dream we call Second Life to create. It is your acts of creation from the smallest item to the largest sim that fuels this dream.
