The most recognised and responded to works were by rig torok, Tiana Genesis, ilianor illios & Kasha Selona. The feedback we were able to pass on anonymously to the artists is as valuable, if not more so, than the awards money. As Art Festival said at the closing ceremony “responses feed the soul and encourage the artist to keep working on their journey of discovery” and that is what this world is all about.
I wonder if people (or even only one) fed my soul by a comment on my work, till now I didn’t get any response or notecard, the people I had contact with during the Art Fest liked my work, bizar that no one gave me credit on a notecard to the organizers…well… never mind I’ll do my thing anyway and move on :-)
But this gives me food for thought, as InWorldz is a US enterprise and all the events are done on hours when I’m sleeping or late at night, I’m sort of in my corner and exlcuded from a lot of conversations and party’s. So working on my popularity or ‘showing up performance’ is missing ! Is talk and socializing ‘promoting’ ? Is that the key to succes or appreciation for an Art work?, is it all in the words ?… is the person/avatar more important then the Art work itself ? I know know, today’s hype is communication, screaming for attention, LOOK at me, READ me. But this is not what I’m doing, in fact I’m not social at all ! For Art I guess am more a Van Ghogh type maybe, (not a comparision art wise but in character), struggling in my corner…never giving up, full of idea’s and mostly not recognised…
but no worries, I will keep my ears :-)
