ICARDI - Art Administration's Birthday!

Hey performance art fans!

This week has been super busy and it looks like the social momentum will simply keep on scrolling onwards! I literally just finished blogging my artist talk with Ian Ah that took place on Sunday and in a matter of hours, I returned to the Metaverse to celebrate Art Administration's Birthday!

BL Nevin started this ICARDI (International Current Art Research & Development Institute) project in Real Life and has decided to import the concept into Second Life.

So to officially celebrate Art Admin's B-day, BL had us line up at Reuters for an official group shot - complete with the ICARDI (rhymes with BACARDI) placard sign.

The lobby at Reuters has been a regular haunt for Second Front.

Well, I am sure you will be hearing more about ICARDI very soon and I hope that you can attend 2008's celebration of Art Administration's Birthday on February 19 at midnight sharp.

Here is some photo-documentation...

Here is the same gaggle of ICARDI fans except this time, we are working our buns off to try and look more "administrative" for the group photo. Group photos in Second Life are much more difficult to coordinate than in real life. Both Rubaiyat and Tran feel more confident and heroic wearing capes when in bureaucratic mode... heh heh! By the way, Tran is planning to create his own fashion line based on Op-Art patterns.

In this pic, you can see Great Escape going a little "bananas" over the whole pressure to become formalized into an administrative infrastructure. My guess is that GE is still feeling nostalgic towards Art's actual Birthday.

After going completely bananas, we were able to assume a group formation. This is the official group portrait authenticated by BL Nevin. This is his dedication:

"for Emmett Williams:
'Little Fluxus People' Invade the Reuter's Building SL" - BL Nevin...

It probably goes without saying that we all needed to de-compress after that stressfull group photo so we retired for the evening to spend some quality time at Great Escape's Hot Tub in Stone Pike. I guess the self-portrait that Great Escape placed on the wall was to aid in some erotic stimulation? Yikes! ;-)

Either way, GE's fetishized portrait provided a perfect backdrop for a little bit of my own gratuitous display of virtual narcissism. I swore that I saw tie-dyed spirals cascading around me when I took this photo. Oh well, just goes to show that in Second Life, hallucinations are not always consensual... Ian Ah knows where to find the best drugs in SL! ;-)

UPDATE FROM THE FUTURE: Plurabelle Posthorn also blogged this ICARDI event.
