Tommy Bruce announces an extension of his MFA Thesis work “Real Problems,” hosted at Grab By The Horns (GBTH), a virtual curatorial project by Marina Münter, presented in the online platform SecondLife. This adaptation comes in response to the postponement of his physical MFA thesis exhibition at AC[2] Gallery in Albuquerque, New Mexico, due to the COVID19 pandemic.

In "Real Problems" Bruce explores the blurring boundaries between IRL and virtual worlds through a new series of self-portrait, video and performance works. These works present Bruce's alter-ego (or ‘fursona’) Atmus, a white-tailed deer, as his primary subject. Atmus comes from Bruce's long-standing involvement in the subculture known as the Furry Community.
