Drunk on Second Life

I just went to see a dance installation (dancstallation?) by artist Niki McCretton in Second Life. It was really good.

You could do different bits of choreography that had been previously mo-capped in meatspace by technicians at Bournemouth University.













I know I probably look a bit clumsy in these stills, but in motion I was as graceful as a swan.

















Outside I found a picture of my face plastered on a billboard.






















Clearly it looks nowt like me.
























2nd Live

Speaking of which, the other day I uploaded a picture of my face onto myheritage.com and using facial recognition software it told me that I resemble:










1. Tupak Shakur


and

















2. Sidney Poitier


Which I thought was rather perceptive.


Poitier is currently being tipped for Oscar contention for his leading role in the forthcoming Richard DeDomenici biopic Mo-capped in Meatspace, coming fall '08

The movie has been languishing in development hell since its original star Tupac Shakur, was fatally wounded in a drive-by in Las Vegas in 1997 by Sidney Poitier.

Gallery within a gallery

Thanks to Miranda Gavin from The Forum Blog for taking this gorgeous picture of the Black Cylinder Gallery with her SLR.

I was at Tate Modern on Saturday to deliver a paper about my work in relation to Post Avant-Garde Activism, as part of an Open University Study Day timed to coincide with Tate Modern's major exhibition Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia.


I sense your incredulity.

I will provide you with evidence in due course.
