WRITE HOME: ACCIDENTS HAPPEN!

Poor little avatars hide behind poor little avatars! Avatars ab/use!
Avatars don't need air! You can't weigh them! They don't know the meaning of the word! THESE avatars don't know anything! They're weighed down by coordinates! They can't fuck! Their prims bend, smash! Smashed prims are prims. Hello, hello! Video and performance spewed from a laboratory of virtual environments.
IN MY WORLD, THERE ARE NO ERRORS, ONLY SEDUCTIONS!


The human figure's place in art gets turned inside out here in this world of unfolded and refolded geometries. What remains of the body in the domain of the virtual?
What survives the transition? Could this still be called a body?
Where are we going in this crossing over into bits, why are we going there/nowhere and what does it say about the nature of human desire? At what point does a beautiful accident become a tragic mistake? Is there truly such a thing as a mistake?



A pioneer in virtual worlds and networked environments,
Alan Sondheim brings his latest work to Odyssey http://odysseyart.ning.com/,
an international community of artists working on 2 servers in the networked 3d virtual world called Second Life.

An autobiography of Sondheim's career as an artist can be found here http://www.alansondheim.org/COMPBIO.TXT
