Interesting SL / RL Art Project

Meilo Minotaur and CapCat Ragu are owners and creators of the wonderful sim Delicatessen. Find my blogpost here. They are running a very special art project: CapCat and Meilo have created 18 beautiful avatars, which everybody can get FULL PERM for free. Your modifications as photos and machinimas will be displayed RL in Vienna. Deadline is October 20. Read their notes:


The virtual experience of the body is not exactly an experience of the flesh. These sensations, albeit having a physical sensorial aspect, continue to be experienced in our bodies behind the screen, not in our avatar body. The virtual body is a metaphorical body, all language, therefore open to experimentation and possibility.

In this new project, Meilo Minotaur and CapCat Ragu invite us, once again, to rethink our bodies through our avatars, making available all kinds of skins, shapes, body parts, clothes, etc. All these items are fully modifiable, shareable and copyable, thus challenging the audience to become creators and also share their derivative work with us, in the All My Independent Women exhibition. While the avatars are available in the Second Life Sim Delicatessen http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Porto/126/113/703, the pictures and machinimas of the derivative work will be displayed at VBKOE, Vienna, giving us a glimpse of the new creative flux, beyond the concepts of author and work of art, happening online.

If you want to participate in the RL project you must submit your derivative work in flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/meta_body/ or in koinup group http://www.koinup.com/group/meta-body until October 20th 2011.
