Digital Paintings that Reflect a Virtual World
AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder is a virtual artist and poet who exists in a virtual world called, Second Life. Photographing the daily affairs of his fellow inhabitants' in-world adventures, he applies digital paint and cuts and pastes images which he culls from the internet into his picture making practice. His poems reflect on the wild and imaginative shapes of landscapes in virtual reality, and how the design of these worlds influence the interactivity amongst residents.
ABX, Autumn, or Blitz, as he is commonly known by his virtual simpaticos was conceived on Dec./19/2009. After wandering barefoot for over 3 years in the virtual world, he delved into his innermost pixelated soul in search for meaning in the connections and dislocations he began to feel while living in Second Life. He realized there were many identities from all over the world logged in at any moment into the virtual system, and connectivity with another immediate, yet at the end of the day the far and away distance between two avatars became a reality to bear.
Support Blitz in his virtual soul searching as he hones his narrative-based works about the unsettling angst and joy of being a virtual world resident.
