Populys is not merely another environment in the metaverse. It is a functioning city, filled with content and with a very active community. Upon visiting, one can discover the city and its inhabitants.
There are a wide range of activities to choose from in Populys. Listening to good music by attending a concert, visiting a disco or a cinema, going to the events arena, observing a news set in action or watching podcasts being recorded, are only a few of the possibilities on offer.
There is also an art gallery with changing exhibitions, and I happy to share that I have been invited to have a solo exhibition in this gallery starting 10 April 2023. The exhibition will run for one month.
The exhibition is titled “Pathways”.
Having traveled along the paths of mindfulness, the corridors of cyberspace and the hallways of augmented reality, I have recently entered the virtual spaces of the metaverse. The exhibition brings to light my continuous research and expression of new possibilities.
Populys can be found in Spatial and can be accessed via PC, phone or a Virtual Reality headset. Spatial is free and Populys can be entered via this link.
Upon entering, exit the reception room, follow the path up the steps and past the water. Coming down the steps at the other end, turn left to find the art gallery.
Hope to see you there!

Mia Medaković-Topalović is the founder and editor-in-chief of the online magazine Refresh Your Life (RYL). RYL is a mix of spirituality, art, culture, beauty, fashion and personal development. The texts in the magazine are written and published in Serbian, Croatian, English, Bosnian, Italian and German. With a simple click, RYL can be read worldwide.
I was introduced to Mia by a mutual friend from Florence, and when Mia visited Abu Dhabi in April 2018 we met. She set about interviewing me and I was struck by her dynamic and vibrant personality. The interview titled “iPhoneart Journey" was published in May 2018.
In October of the same year whilst visiting Baku in Azerbaijan, I was contacted by Mia to write an article about my meeting there with artist Faig Ahmed.
In November 2019 I was once again asked to write for the magazine and had a fantastic time putting together “Linda’s Wonderland”.
This February RYL with its 91st issue celebrated its 8th birthday. It was a great honour to be asked to write for this issue. My article is titled “The heart of the lion”.

She is always willing to follow up with students and provide extra information and tips.
When Nicki contacted me to invite me to write an article for her website about my use of slow shutter and my travels, I was delighted.
