Spawn of the surreal er en blogg som tar for seg kunst i Second Life. Hvorfor skal kunstnere holde på i Second life? Domenico Quaranta svarer på bloggen:
…is a good place to experiment with art, and to reflect on the virtual body, the virtual space, the virtual self, the new meaning of such words as identity, performance, time and space. Because it tries to replicate real life, but it still is completely different from the real world. Because it’s ugly, full of companies, money, pornography, politicians and other pretty things that make real life «so different, so appealing».
