VB01 – Girl Next Door

Vista Hermosa Art Center
18 April 2009

Our inaugural performance was occasioned by an invitation from Esparanza Freese of Kansas State University and Soundsmith Kamachi of the Vista Hermosa Art Center to create a work for their Collecting Artists exhibition. I chose to “collect” 9 copies of of the “noob avatar” I perceived to be the most ubiquitous, Second Life’s Girl Next Door, and present them as a sculptural multiple. The performance was 2 hours, which would become our nominal performance length.
