Second Life Performance Night


This evening will feature three different artists/groups, which use the
online virtual world of Second Life as a medium for performance art.
Launched in 2003 by Linden Labs, Second Life (SL) hit widespread
popularity in 2006. In this 3D-rendered world, people across the world
share a networked space with unique avatars. With a completely
user-generated environment, SL enables a rich world of artistic
possibilities.

Alan Sondheim along with Foofwa d'Imobilite will present a performance
using the aesthetics of the Second Life environment to create an
experimental choreography; Lily & Honglei will present The Merry-go-around
a virtual installation addressing a series of environmental issues in
todays China; Second Front has discovered a virtual crypt within Second
Life and are inviting the public to witness its opening. Together, these
three short performances (12-15 minutes each) will sample some of the
contemporary trends in Second Life performance art.
The performances will be followed by a brief panel discussion and a
subsequent launch party of Avvie Road  the second DVD of Second Fronts
performance works.

People: Alan Sondheim (with Foofwa d'Imobilite), Lily & Honglei, Patrick
Lichty, Scott Kildall
