Artist Sells Herself as Commodity: Iggy Buys Her Head
Location: Getting Ahead in Second Life
When a post by Miso Susanowa caught my eye today, I had to participate, if only to use a groaner of a pun I've always loved.
Miso is selling herself, a bit at a time, at the University of Western Australia's 3D Open Art Challenge.
Needing a place for my spare dreadlocks, I bought her head for 300 Linden Dollars.
Thus the artist in SL these days: as Linden Lab turns its back on the builders who made the world possible, the remaining customers and their creations are, indeed, commodities.
Well done, Miso. I promise we'll never play soccer with your head.
Get over to the show [direct teleport link] before Miso and her secrets (there's one in each body part) are purchased.
I'm not telling a thing. The secret in Miso's head is between me and her.
