Do virtual avatars die?
Physical typists do!
And one way or another, virtual avatars leave this world all the time.

Yet, here in SL we are probably MORE in denial of death than even in RL.

On 7 November, VB/C will drape their elegant corpses around Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, Atlantis, Stonehenge… all in the extraordinary sim that is Petruchio.

On arrival, visitors will receive a “hunt map” and “memory box.” The map tells you how many corpses to look for in each landscape, and the memory box lets you collect the memory bottles you’ll find by the side of each corpse. The memory bottles contain words, images, and even the corpse’s death pose, so visitors can lie in solidarity with the deceased.

As a virtual public artist my work invites avatar communities to express their identity, explore their culture, and demand their civil rights.
