this 3 x 3 inch gem was a happy discovery. It's a detail of a larger negative but i found the moment the water started washing away the unexposed chemistry, the print that i had created a dream. The soft edges and fine detail made me wanted to climb inside. Crazy thing is we can. This was created in a social networking system called Second Life. It's a virtual world where i collaborate with builders, historians, researchers and artists.
