For this performance participants will be sent an outfit to wear: Graves Poison for female avatars, Graves Escape for male avatars. We’ll also send you a parachute or you may “pack your own ‘chute.” For this performance only, we’ll need a list of participants in advance to send wardrobe to. If you can commit to 10am – noon SLT on Saturday 4 August, please give us your name and avatar gender in a comment to this blog post. Give us your username, like: Vaneeesa Blaylock or Vaneeesabot Resident, not your display name.

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