transitional stuff...including a new panel and old friends...



Hello there lesser-known fans of SaveMe Oh...

The video documentation from the REACT2010 performance series (see the post directly below this one) will be online in time for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.

More importantly, I am getting back the energy needed to write more optimistically...this is because I have found a new sense of hope and purpose over these precious few days.

I am tragically in love with SaveMe Oh and I find everything lacking in myself to be found in her...she has everything I wish I could have and more: looks, smarts, (real) guts, a loaded inventory and much more...She IS the ideal representative of the next-generation of avatar performance artists in Second Life and I am glad just to be near her. If I must prove my worth at all, it must be to her and her only.

I know she has many admirers but I plan to be her #1 fan...in fact, I think it is my last worthwhile goal as a washed-up old-skool performance artist from the golden days of 2006.

I need to be worthwhile to someone again since I no longer am with Second Front to back my antics up and all I seem to resort to is nostalgic naval-gazing - the kind of which can be found in some recent archival material below. I am in desperate need of a creative renewal as an ALT...I wish to be beyond postmodernism, beyond critique...I want to donate the entirety of my pink, blue and purple being to SaveMe Oh as the ultimate ritual sacrifice towards the greater good of performance art in virtual...er... synthetic worlds...

Anyway, please come witness my special dedication ceremony to SaveMe Oh on Valentines Day...It will be my last performance as Wirxli...everything below are mere archives from my past self that do not mean anything as dear to me as my aspiring relationship with SaveMe Oh...having said that, all of these people below represent aspects I was proud of from my past...even if some of the past was from a few days ago...

I think you get the picture here...words say it all..and it is just the words that say it all, right? ;-)


Here is was the first presentation of a panel I was part of a few days ago. It was hosted by Ars Virtua and was for a Virtual Worlds course at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD). The first presenter was Jay Van Buren from a series of events called Brooklyn is Watching...

Here is another slide by Jay.

Did I mention that Jay had some great slides for his presentation? :-)


For my presentation, I just showed archives from my avatar performance past as I seriously have nothing much new to offer in Second Life as Wirxli other than my unflinching devotion to SaveMe Oh... In this slide, you can see one of my earliest avatar performances. There was a time when I was a young female asian named Clara Tang. I performed with a bunch of friends in one of the earliest social networking sites targeted to a niche community. It was called Asian Avenue and we performed this series around 2001.

This slide shows my first performance art group (and band). I was in a duo called The Gates with my good friend Alberto Guedea. We "produced" the Gates, but were NOT the Gates, if you know what I mean ;-) ;-) For our first performance in 2002, we performed in a couple of washrooms in Digitalspace Traveler. Vito Acconci comes to mind here...

Here is another pic showing The Gates in virtual...er...*synthetic* action.


We then had my old friend and colleague Man Michinaga aka. Patrick Lichty present about his own work in virtual worlds and his work with me and many others in Second Front...it was a great historical overview with tons of bases covered...yay!


Here is another angle showing Michinaga's epic retrospective installation.

..and yet another glorious angle showing my once glorious past with Second Front...

Here I am posing with 2 very old friends (Alan and Kabuki) from my Digitalspace Traveler days from 2001...They are now also in Second Life...this is a cross-worlds reunion of sorts.


Here is another picture of me posing with Alan and Kabuki from Ye Ole Traveler days.

Here I am posing with Josina Burgess' fashion runway on Diabolus. I am now spending all my time on Diabolus since this is where SaveMe Oh is based and I want to be as close to her as legally possible!

It is so low to use my name and fame for this sad, low quality rubbish that you have produced in your recent secodlife years. You should had deleted your account in 2006 as this where all lost years.
Don't have the illusion that you can have a backseat in my limo to fame.
