The Day after L2 - re-visiting the space with Lizsolo Mathilde...

I was literally just previewing my archives from yesterday's L2 event (scroll down the blog for more details) when my performance-artist friend from Newfoundland, Lizsolo Mathilde said she was currently in Second Life so I met up with her in-world and offered her a teleport to Gene Ware's L2 compound for a tour. I am going to ask other members of Second Front to see if she is allowed to officially join our performance art group. We could definitely use a furry or two in the group :-D

So here we are watching Gene Ware's official Dante Hotel movie...


...Lizsolo Mathilde has decided to fly over to the screen to get a better look at Gene Ware's movie...

...ok, as you can see, we are still watching the movie. We watched the whole movie, in fact...

...at the point this pic was taken, the movie was starting to loop so I asked Lizsolo if she wanted to follow me and explore the rest of the L2 compound with me and interact with those virtual performance sculptures just a virtual block away from this movie theater. She was on the phone at the time but then managed to type back to me on her invisible keyboard that she was interested in checking out the rest of the L2 region so off we went...

Here is a distant pic of us interacting with the motion-tracked virtual performance sculptures. You can see Lizsolo flying in overhead in the upper-left portion of this pic...She is directly above Gene Ware's Dante Chatterbotte. These performance sculptures also draw your flight-paths in real-time too...super-kewl indeed!

...and here is a close-up of the pair of realtime and collaborative virtual sculptures that we have just created as a direct result of our performative avatar actions. In Second Life, the performance residue itself becomes an experience as well as the virtualization of a sculptural "object".

Lizsolo then decided to have a lengthy conversation with Dante. I overheard a little bit of what they were discussing:

1) Science Fiction authors being almost exclusively male.
2) The Bible being a form of Science Fiction.
3) Discussing some author whose name I have now forgotten.....Ursula...uh...sigh!


Performing and interacting with a bot (in this case, a female version called a "botte") quickly became exhausting so we spent the rest of the meeting chilling out to yet another movie by Gene Ware. The movie is just about to start! In the meantime, scroll down to read more blogs...
