On February 14, 2010, Second Life performance artist Wirxli Flimflam committed suicide. Exactly 2 years and 7 months later on September 14, 2012, Wirxli 2 - the resurrected avatar - was re-born in a volcano...Born again as a split personality - shared between Jeremy Owen Turner [Canada] and Jacque Drinkall [Australia]- Wirxli2 is ready for his/her next set of adventures in Second Life...are YOU ready?

2012 - THE END OF DAZE
For the End of Daze, half of me celebrated by chatting with a random stranger (Alex De Jong) from Rotterdam as part of the Odyssey Performance Festival for a Dutch Gallery.It turns out this stranger was a Buddhist (which I could surmise from his preferred avatar, "Lodro")...This performance was curated by Haglet (in Amsterdam?) and was called "Standing in the Grass" or something like that...I was merely participating...all I knew was that I would sit in front of a TV and chat with some guy for about an hour - preferable about today's doomsday (or lack thereof)...It looked like there were many levels of mediation - - including a tweet-wall and some other trendy elements.
Thanks to Liz Solo and Odyssey Island for inviting me :-) Stay tuned for the other half of me performing at 4 AM SLT from Australia..will only Aussies attend? We shall see...
Here are some more pics...I will comment on some of them below but I will not spend too much time on them..my RL self is going to attend some Doomsday Karaoke at Open Space Gallery :-)
Scroll down for pics...
hypermediation even more than remediation this time...At one point I asked Alex/Lodro if he received any super powers as a result of the 2012 ascension...I think he said he learned concentration...I learned how to speak to two people at the same time..almost telepathically ;-)
Qyxxql has spoken with Buddhists before...
.......and here are the only other events I had time to attend during today's festival...
Avatar Orchestra Metaverse stream their tunage....
Wafa Borges present her terran sculpture based on Adam and Eve.
