I stumbled across a mesh figure that I had left at the NGrid sandbox months ago. What a cool surprise!

So what can I say to introduce myself around here.  For decades I have been a performance artist who used stage magic comedy and vaudevillian style antic to be Fish The Magish.

As life progressed I basically retired the name Fish the Magish to another magician.

Instead I took on the moniker Tuna Oddfellow after my Second Life avatar.  This became my stage name and my identity as a public digital artist.  I even perform real life and mixed reality shows using the same name.

More people in RL know me as Tuna Oddfellow than anything else.  Life is stranger than fiction.

Currently I perform an immersive online 3-D psychedelic art and dance experience in the virtual world of InWorldz.  I look forward to watching this group grow.

Thank you for inviting me to the party.

Yours,

Tuna

You know, a funny thing about Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera is that during their lifetimes Diego was much bigger. But since then Frida has really eclipsed him. Why? Was she a better artist? Is her work more relevant to the identity art of this time? Perhaps. Another thought is that when people were seeing these monumental Diego murals F2F, they were blown away. But he hasn't translated well to smaller screens and reproductions. Meanwhile Frida's iconography is so personal and so powerful that scale and media perhaps give way to her pure language. Perhaps part of her eclipsing Diego is the way her work functions with printing presses and flat screens.

Public Art IRL can be powerful. It is often immersive: Flashmobs, Large Murals, Covered Trees. How does this function inside the matrix? We all know amazing VR technologies are coming, but right now on your laptop you can have a remarkable experience of Virtual Public Art. It's not that your screen is as huge as a Diego Mural or an Improv Everywhere action, rather it's that if you really project into your avatar, you can be immersed in a 3D world of color, spectacle, and enough spatial translation & rotation to give a human or a graphics card some bad motion sickness!

How do YOU make Public Art in Cyberspace?
