Second Life

10:30 p.m. A two minute dance in the study exploring the gestures and motions of avatars in-training on Second Life. Dorion prepares for an interview on Second Life, and we try to figure out how to get his avatar to move through various worlds. The novice body is awkward. It bumps into things. Swerves haphazardly, and walks through other bodies. I play through the sensations of these simulated forms. Trying on the looseness. Feeling the swing of limbs on weightless hinges. Body buoyant and loose. A robot in anti-gravity. Dorion cries out while I draw. A mouse! Clearly we need to get Alice back from the mouse hunt at my sister’s house. She has work to do here.
