Cyber Octopus World!

Cyber Octopus Story

Cyber Octopus Story

I kid you not! This is a tremendously innovative exhibit by Kyota Spitteler that is as intriguing as it is fantastical. The history of her exhibit focuses on a Marine Life that, in a clever addition to the Dallier’s Hope ethos, was brought to The Rock with the first pioneers. The Octopus adapted to the Marine Life by developing a thick skin which retained it’s moisture in an unnatural environment, and then further evolved into a species called Mother Octopuses (Or is it Octopi?!) Whatever, I’ll just affectionately call the one on display “OctoMom!”

These evolved creatures developed a sort of kinship with their human counterparts on the New World, living in harmony with one another. Featuring a great Octomom with her tentacles outspead, you can even walk up to her and give her thoughtful smooch if you’re inclined!

Kyota has also created a great machinima about her SL6B exhibit which tells the story of their journey to the future! Make sure you stop and visit Cyber Octopus World today!
