Roc Furse

Roc Furse

The Freedom Project showcased how the virtual art world is most different from the real. Disabled and limited in real world artistic pursuits, in SL, there is equal opportunity for all, regardless of circumstance. So the talented drop their limitations and discover that they can build upon their perceptions and sensitivities. “Escape” by Roc Furse is a clear and poignant expression of the impossible made possible. The ill patient can rise from her bed and, for the first time, can join the world outside the window, by riding on technology. There is nothing vague or to be questioned here. However, the beauty of its depiction is arresting. The brave patient transcends all limitations by finding the vast world awaiting. What happens next in this journey? It is one thing to venture forth and another to take advantage of opportunity. Like a diving board, this liberated figure is caught forever in the dive formation, never to know if there is a graceful splash at the bottom, or a flop. Optimistic and encouragement is frozen in time. More inspiring than the dive is the result.
