<nettime> Thriller at the Canada/US Border in Second Life


More info and photos here:


This performance engages with the following questions:

- What are the borders of online public space? how do they relate to the 
borders of our "first life"?

- What are the relationships between borders and prisons? How are these 
separate but related modern features a part of the infrastructure that 
separates the global north from the global south?

- How do borders produce gender and how are those dynamics affected by 
the seeming gender freedom online public space inhabited by avatars? How 
is gender nonconformity perceived and discussed in online spaces, in 
prisons, in borders?

- Is synchronized dancing as fun in second life as it is in first life?
