On Sunday November 10, there was an art exhibition on the top floor of the Somnium Photo Art Gallery in the Greece sim. This exhibition was different as it was an artistic protest against Linden Lab: the C.A.L.L. Exhibition. C.A.L.L., short for Creators Against Linden Lab, had asked artists from across the Grid to make and donate works specifically for the show, "which property rights you will gladly grant on your own free will to Linden Lab." All the artwork was free for residents to take a copy, set for "sale" at zero Lindens, "as the content you have uploaded to SL is not yours anyway with the current LL TOS."
Walk himself had made and donated a peice, "Property of LL," which had a paragraph of statement freely donating his "content" to Linden Lab, with an outline of a man sitting on a toilet.
Among those there was Trinity Yazimoto, one of the organizers of the "United Content Creators in Second Life" group. A favorite piece of art of her, and others, was "Once Upon a Time," which was a few words next to a picture of a wilted flower, "this one is really meaningful." Walt called it, "this is technically very good - the title I find a bit misunderstandable. 'Take our creativity not our souls.' Well, actually we dont want our creativity to be taken. ... The picture is great" "I like that without any words," a visitor commented, "it gives a message."
The exhibition will remain up at the Somnium Art Gallery until December 31st.
