More on the avatar body. My avatar has been pregnant. Several times. She has given birth to many creatures but in these images she is nursing her tiny avatar baby on Odyssey Island in Second Life. This theme of birth is both a part of the Machine I Am Project as well as being explored in depth in my upcoming piece “Live Home Alien Birth” – with Second Front. Live Home Alien Birth is a Second Life based performance and Gallery Installation. It is programmed at Alternator Gallery for Contemporary Art – in Kelowna, B.C. – a joint show with Networker Mez (a.k.a.) Mary Ann Breeze of Ars Virtua for April of 2009. I am working on a new virtual instrument and composition for the Birth Piece with Avatar Orchestra Metaverse.
