Live performance with qiezli Hixantapo (Jeremy Owen Turner) at the Museo del Metaverso, Wednesday, June 9, noon SLT. Streamed live at the Viareggio Art Project!

Left: qiezli as abstract avatar consisting of colored geometric shapes and Selavy. Right: "undressing" the avatars reveals the underlying human shape of both avatars. After being completely undressed, both avatars swapped shape and appearance and slowly dressed using "clothes" and attachments of the other, thus becoming the other.

Re-performed November 20, 2010, together with qiezli for the mixed-reality event Zeitgeist, a project by Nora Furlough, which was seen at the MuroGallery in Geneve and on Odyssey.
