Art Hurts - Ichibot Nishi experience

I was visiting Brooklyn is Watching and all of a sudden these boxes started pushing and beating me. I could not go anywhere or stop it so I decide to wait for it to stop by itself as it always happens. I waited and waited and waited... It kept pushing me away from the site I was and heating me and even when I was away from the site at the sea area on the ground they kept heating me even when I was forced to be lying down. I almost couldn't get up. I've been to many exhibitions in my life and seen lots of works but never suffered any kind of physical touch that I was not aware or could not prevent or stop. I got out from Brooklyn site and got back. The boxes were still there following me. I would love to have it in RL to use it as a defense weapon. I felt terrible. And there was also the sound of the boxes chasing me everywhere. Not funny, not a great experience. I wonder if it has to do with Second Life environment where there's a lot of disrespect. It was worse than the Bloodlines vamps approach. At least they ask you if you want to join them or if you allow them to take your blood. lol Perhaps there was a way to stop the boxes but as I'm new at SL I still don't know. Wishful thinking is good. Update: The title of this post was changed because the author of this aggression, Ichibot Nishi, said that it was another person who did this.

I haven't a clue how to stop the boxes either. I hope you figure it out.

Have a terrific day. :)

I got out the place!

Hi there Ana, I'm sorry the boxes were so awful but I didn't make them and had nothing to do with their placement at Brooklyn is Watching!

I would never do anything like that. That's the sort of thing that can cause a seizure in susceptible folks (like me). If you saw me there it was because I was demanding that Ichibot stop it. That is the full extent of our collaboration.

Please, please, to be fair to me, please change the title of your blog post to Art Hurts - Ichibot Nishi experience. If you don't know how to do this, let me know and I'll help you. I do not want my name associated with that form of aggression. It is false representation.

Thank you for your understanding.

That's very strange.
I will change of course. I did not see you there but saw Ichibot Nishi and when I arrived he was showing a guillotine to another person.
He told me it was your work and when I asked him what started the boxes to chase me it was the whole group.
I believe Brooklyn is Watching should start thinking a about this kind of participants.
Thank you for the visit.

thank you ana

it is unacceptable that ichibot is passing off his work as mine. it makes me sad to know a friend has hurt me in this way.

I'm also sad because I thought I had meet a nice person. I don't know why he did it.
