Walking Virtual New Hampshire

Virtual World: Second Life
Mon 20 Jan: 8:45am – 2pm SLT / PST

Like the RL walkers Merriam & Vanessa will walk from 8:45am to 2pm. The RL walkers will be on EST, and the virtual walkers will be on SLT / PST. Merriam & Vanessa will be walking on treadmills in both RL & SL, doing 10.2 miles this day. The 2 mile / hour pace will be a lot easier in our cozy studios than the frozen roads the RL walkers will be on, but it’s a small way to offer some solidarity with the walkers and their cause.

YOU are invited to join us. Walk on a virtual treadmill for 5 minutes, or for the whole 5 hours. If you have a treadmill at your RL workstation you can walk there too. If not, your walking avatar will be great.

You can visit Merriam & Vanessa’s pages at NH, you can sign up yourself to walk a day, or you could sponsor Merriam or Vanessa:
• NH / Merriam Galaxy
• NH / Vanessa Blaylock

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