Poetics of the Virtual

Second Life as a laboratory for phenomenology of representations of space-
time: think of multiply-connected geometries and configurations, dynamic
impossible behaviors, behavioral and object intersections and collisions,
spews, and interiorities. We work concretely and theoretically towards a
poetics and psychophysics of the virtual through Second Life; through
abject and inconceivable topologies, we experience an obdurate alterity.

The poetics of the avatar is dependent upon dissemination, dissimulation,
and dispersion. One moves as a dispersion as well, moves through skein-
and sheave-skin; time and objects loop, are activated, suffer through
detumescence, collapse, revive, are always already potential. The world is
peculiar; one object teleports, another spews, a third crackles video.

Thanks to Sugar Seville, Sandy Baldwin, Ian Ah, and others, the space
becomes more complex, problematic. We have a five-month residency here.

"This exhibit is being presented in the networked environment Second Life
on the Odyssey simulator. To view this work you must have a Second Life

Soundwork with tamburitza basprim 4-course brac:


Convoluted intersecting configurations with tangled occluded textures
and broken figures. Nikuko-avatar of convoluted intersecting skeins
tangling occluded sheave-skins towards indecipherment of 3-space 1-time,
skein-flesh, spew-tissue. Performance no longer insists on coherent body
or work-body, skin no longer joins skin, cloth is absent substance. This
is called 'getting there.' Solipsis and Indra come to mind. parters jpg series
