Toksik Jello

Toksik Jello is a photographic story installation that tells the story of a child navigating socially, within a wasteland of fragmentation and warring personalities.

Socio-political systems and problems involve a combination of social and political factors. We should all have a place regardless of who we are for creation and role-playing. Maybe not everybody agrees to have a role-playing place that is kid-oriented and that is ok, but that is why this place is also an important place. Those who seek that type of role-playing can come here and be safe and make friends.

This place is also a great spot for photo opportunities for those of you who love the 
post-apocalyptic landscape. How often have we felt like a child as an adult being bullied or lied to? 

Of course, we have, it is part of the social-political system as we fit people into categories and beliefs. One thing for sure is that we all need that sense of belonging. 

Belonging means acceptance as a member or part. This is such an important part of life and in Second Life there are so many opportunities to get the sense of fitting right in. Most of us do not need fixing, we just need to belong to something.

Hopefully, you take some time and explore this great installation even if you don't belong here you can learn and appreciate what is important to others. 
You can find truth in even the most difficult-to-understand even though you may not agree.  One of the best ways to communicate acceptance is through validation. Validation builds a sense of belonging and strengthens relationships. Validation is the language of acceptance. Validation is the acknowledgment that someone's internal experience is understandable and helps you stay on the same side, with a sense of belonging, even when you disagree.
