The white wash

shy by Ria KamachiZoeiconTwitter

This images of Avatar have evolved rapidly in Second Life, where Whiteness of the most radical forms has been reinforced rapidly. AVs are being washed out in white.

This av embodies the female, entirely white washed out by light.

Second Life is a world of light, everything is made of photons. In western culture and the science of Victorian Europe and America through modern racial thinking white and light is the highest indication of value. This trend has been make stronger as people construct selves in Second Life, they tend to become lighter and lighter and lighter. I have a blonde whig.

Linden Labs established a very white set of entry points to identity and they have gotten more white and more light over time.
