2021 VW: ART: The Natascha Randt Memorial. Sometimes the metaverse is painfully real. Avatars are immortal but the people behind them are not.

The Natascha Randt Memorial.  
Sometimes the metaverse is painfully real.   
Avatars are immortal but the people behind them are not.
Ever since my creative partner, Natascha Randt, passed away on September 3rd of this year. I have been working on building her a memorial on Kitely - Virtual Worlds--Karima-Hoisan
With the help of my fabulous scripting partner, Dale Innis, and also Joey Schaffer (Joey Writer) a close friend and collaborator of Nat's who has also contributed with a special section, we can now say it's done.

The world is a guided tour, that once again, relies heavily on being able to see parcel media and enjoy short clips.
