"Defective Photo Films" by Gitu Aura at Space 4 Art

Gitu Aura creates wonderful digitally layered pictures based on photos in Second Life. This time she has composed pictures, which look like excerpts of old film roles; their grungy style radiates an atmosphere of melancholic recollection. The mid-term-party in the TopGallery of Space 4 Art is on 27th at 1pm SLT. Cordial invitation!
