One notable exception features a video stream of Childish Gambino's masterpiece "This is America" video, presented in a unique way -- on evocative 3D objects (such as a cross):

"One of the contemporary courses in my work 'Salt' contends on the periphery with racism and in the instance that I've included 'This is America' playing on loop in one scene, renamed as 'this is notjust America'," she explains,

Salt is the title of the immersive installation by Eliza Weirwight, which formally opened over the weekend of June 16th and 17th, 2018. In terms of her non-commercial work, Eliza is perhaps best known for developing installations that reflect issues that concern her. This was certainly the case when I first encountered her work through her 2013 piece 35 Elephants, which you can read about in my article here.

Eliza Wierwight

16 June 2018

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the notecard I've been avoiding like the second coming of the plague.

I had formerly mused the idea that if I was ever to engage in art again, then this odd creature called 'salt' would evolve, needless to say those originally indiscriminate ideas morphed into something entirely else during the course of actually creating it.

 Eliza Wierwight: "salt" LEA 7 Second Life

 Eliza Wierwight: "salt" LEA 7 Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Eliza Wierwight is well-known for her her home and home furnishings store, Patron, and only rarely can she turn to art. When she has that opportunity, however, you can depend on the results being exceptional. Her first large-scale art work in several years, a sim-sized installation called salt: an immersive arts degustation, is currently on view at LEA7. To say she's been missed is an understatement -- but the wait was decidedly worth it.

Eliza offers visitors two notecards about the installation, one fairly general, the other going into more detail (in case you don't receive them, I've copied the main parts below). salt has received a highly perceptive commentary by Inara Pey, and Strawberry Singh videorecorded a tour with Eliza, embedded below. I encourage you to read all those and, if you can carve out the time, watch the one-hour tour. There is more to learn about the work.

Artist's statement on salt - framework
As a fuller Immersive piece the philosophy of salt manifests in this way, I invite you to consider the journey through the installation as experiencing dining from a pre-set menu of somewhat unpalatable stories & truths. Some my own, some not, though all important to me irrespective of origin. I've quite deliberately misappropriating the term 'degustation'. This imparted itself as an ideal transition, as each segment-course is a unique work of its own volition. There are however other threads that drift through the work, as I've permitted myself a further interplay of symbolic references in relation to the accoutrements of sustenance. In the context of literal salt, a basic commodity that exists in most kitchens of the world, it became a metaphor for the things that wound us, a conduit?. ?Another? thread ?meandering? through this work relates to the Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi, embracing the unique, flawed or imperfect. Life ingratiates itself with such hardship at times.

Salt is an installation by Eliza Wierwight on the LEA7 sim. Salt is incredibly powerful and I had the pleasure of exploring it with its creator.
