There are more choices virtually than in reality. So the extremes of what nurtures and what destroys demands awareness. But it takes time to learn new rules, edit through experiments, and evolve relationships. Those profiled on these pages have defined what best works for their purposes. They have grown through early days of discovery to find an enhanced complement to real life.

Yet, in representing the virtual to the real, some of the prejudices and pitfalls must be exposed. So this issue encompasses the best and the worst. It confronts the reasons the virtual is so rich while it also has a dark side that can’t be ignored.

Art that makes a concrete social statement can change perceptions. Rose Borchovski portrays some of the biggest lessons in real life history through an elegant and profound installation. The Aesthete and the Amateur visit and share impressions that exemplify the virtual considerations.

No Man’s Land by Heavy Writer
Heavy continues his quest to conquer aesthetic understanding, but has to confront some realities that are often part of the art world’s shady business practices. He finds his own impulsive solutions to the problems many face.
