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!

An early adopter of the iPhoneography movement, Nick Fitz-Gerald is the founder of one of the longest running iPhone photo artistry sites in the world, iPhoneographyCentral.
Nicki is an accomplished artist, teacher and co-author of the best selling book “The Art of iPhone Photography”.
Her focus is on mobile artistry and she uses her iPhone and iPad as her tools to create art and videos. Her passion for creativity can be seen in her online courses and workshops. She has presented workshops all around the world, from Los Angeles to Dublin.
I have taken most of Nicki’s online courses and can highly recommend them. Her instructions are clear and thorough which makes them easy to follow. Her responses to questions on the Facebook page she has set up for students of her courses are always encouraging. 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.
The article is now up on Nicki’s website and I invite you to join me on my slow shutter travels.
Having known each other online for some years, I had the privilege of meeting Giulia Baita in person at the opening of the “The Beauty Myth” exhibition at the Copernicus Gallery in Milan in May 2019.
It was an exciting day. Not only did we meet guests attending the opening but we also participated in a live mobile art workshop that Giulia had organized for that afternoon.
Giulia lives in Cagliari, the capital city of the Italian island Sardinia. In March 2017 she founded the MAG MobileArtGroup on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to promote Mobile Art as a new form of contemporary art.
I am sure that all the artists who are with me in this group will agree with me when I say how grateful I am for her passion and enthusiasm as well as her dedication to the artists she comes in contact with on a daily basis.
She has organized a number of exhibitions and as an artist who has been selected to participate, I can commend the organization and professionalism that accompany these events.
