A series of sculptures based on immaterial objects produced and owned by inhabitants in the online world Second Life. The objects were chosen based on their sentimental value for the avatar (a person’s virtual identity) who made or owned them.

The work has been exhibited at Bergen Kunsthall in 2005, Galeria Vermelho, São Paulo in 2008 and Nest, Haag in 2016
