Time: November 11, 2008 at 1pm
Location: Kowhai Island / Second Life
Organized By: Isabel Valverde / Todd Cochrane:

Event Description:
After the hybrid performance environment at LxFactory, (Lisbon,Portugal) and 
Kowhai Island (Wellington University in SecondLife) the project continues in 
its virtual replica and until the end of November as a participatory virtual 
enviroment for avatars. We are uploading mocap animations produced for the 
project. They will be available by touch the dance ball in the room.
We are planning to announce a certain time to gather enough avatars in order to 
perceive how the movements and embodiments are performed by the avatars in 
interaction. Ultimately we want to be able to use dance balls for couples so 
that 2 avatars can embody the interaction of the 2 persons who did the motion 
capture session.
Yes, embodying other bodies and subjectivities through our avatars. Sharing a 
embodied subjectivity that intervienes in the corporeality matrix of Second 
Life, that is what everyone in that environment brings in freely or through 

Look very forward to move with you there,
Most regards,

Isabel C. Valverde
