If you missed Vaneeesa Blaylock's recent performance art piece, I Advance Masked, all is not lost. The event was documented by Codewarrior Carling in an evocative machinima – and Ms. Blaylock and company have a new work scheduled for Saturday September 12 from  noon – 2 PM SLT at

CodeWarrior Carling of Ideajuice Studios shows you what you missed

The upcoming performance is described by Ms. Blaylock as

"8pairs, or diptychs, of avatars appear as identical twins. Each wear theskin of one and the shape of the other in a performance that challengesour cast to take on the body of another… and to allow that other totake on a part of their own body… and challenges our audience toconsider what their virtual body means to them: are you unique? Doessomeone else wear *your* skin? If you change your appearance do youchange your being?"

To prepare for the show, Herald staffwill be consulting with the fur community to research how changingappearance might affects someone's fursona. Perhaps M Linden needs a new look?

    Wait. So two avatars rendered using the same mesh, and wearing the same shape and skin, look the same? This is truly groundbreaking work here. Bravo.

    This type of “performance” is certain to make street mimes seem like geniuses in comparison

    Groundbreaking in pretentiousness, maybe.
