Stelarc


Legendary performance artist / navigator of the undiscovered country of the human body Stelarc dropped by SL on Saturday.

He performed at the Virtual Stelarc Initiative at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT)

I was actually unaware of the Virtual Stelarc Initiative (probably too busy being pissed off at Linden Lab and missing the actual content! 😛

So it was a double treat to see the performance and the installation. Here’s a video from the Stelarc collection that’s a little bit like the performance from Saturday:

I should say that I only saw half the performance! This was a mixed-reality piece for the Innovation Festival / Milano:

I was unable to find a stream on Saturday, or still today, of what happened in FL/Milano, so I only experienced the SL half of this mixed-reality work.

To be honest, it probably wasn’t his finest work, still, it was spine-tingling to see the master in action.

It sort of goes without saying that Stelarc protege Ze Moo was in the house! 😛

Pyewacket Kazyanenko got to be one of the Stelarc's!! This photo is from just after the performance, Pyewacket in a rare non-Stelarc, non-latex, NATURAL FIBER outfit -- shocking!!!

Soooo many Stelarc's... hmm... now why would that appeal to Meeeee... hmmm...

As a Virtual Public Artist my work invites virtual communities to express their identity, explore their culture, and demand their civil rights.
