Kael Greco, Christopher Head, & Benjamin Lotan: Becoming Dragon – Stage 1

Kael Greco, Christopher Head & Benjamin Lotan (San Diego, Visual Arts) Graduate

Becoming Dragon was an immersive, durational performance in the online virtual world of Second Life, lasting for 30 days. Greco used the motion capture and virtual reality systems at the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts to facilitate extended performance in Second Life, as a way of examining online public space and identity as a social feedback process, asking how technology can facilitate new somatic practices of identity.
