BIOGRAPHY:

Photography:
My goal is to demonstrate through my photos that virtual photography is a new art form and Second Life is a true medium for virtual art. Using the tools SL provides, I create my photos using many of the same photographic techniques I would use in real life, while also incorporating virtual techniques not available in real life.

My photography is done entirely in-world using SL environmental effects, graphic settings, and photographic filters.

Sculpture and installations:
My installation work focuses on social issues, identity questions, cultural roles, and sensuality. I often use various lighting and texturing techniques, mostly creating SL-based process art.

I designed the Muses Gallery and Nightclub @TerpsiCorps. I also server as the curator of regular show, there.
