Hyperformal Fun Times with Dancoyote Antonelli...

Here I am floating around one of DC Antonelli's favourite wading pools. This water lily is much more than a pimped up Monet-Motor - this stylish thingie is also part of some evolutionary species chain that DC himself designed....whoa! The initials for "D.C." might come to stand for "Darwinian Creationism" ;-)

Hey there Op Art Trippers, Hyperformal Attire Junkies and Abstract Expressionists,

Last night just before Fau Ferdinand dropped by my PR Office to repair the building's pixel cracks, I was hanging out for a brief yet fun time with the Hyperformal artist and Skydancer Supreme, Dancoyote Antonelli...

You may have read about him in the Second Life Guide. If not, here is a pic of him...



Anyways, DC showed me around his various exhibition/installation sites which included some very trippy Op Art at In Kenzo's place, AMO Island for the NMConnect Campus curated by Larry Pixel.

Speaking of pixel(s), DC and I discussed the definition of Hyperformalism...For DC, Hyperformalism is referring to artwork that appears to be the most "native" to the environment of Second Life. For him, his avatar is a kind of "brand" or "logo". I agree with him here - I am also a brand, trademark and logo :-)

In terms of the environment, his definition of Hyperformalism gets a bit tricky because DC does not like representational remediation but this gets problematic because culturally speaking, the most "native" form of SL experience involves a massive amount of first world remediation...the Metaverse for most is a pop-culture mirror-world...but anyways, I digress...

On the subject of remediation though, check out this very kewl version of Robert Anton Wilson's FNORD...

FNORD!
