Artist Sells Herself as Commodity: Iggy Buys Her Head

Artist for Sale
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.
Not So Subtle Message
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.
At Iggys Gallery
I'm not telling a thing. The secret in Miso's head is between me and her.

I will even throw in a set of fake Ginsu Knives to the first 100 avatars who buy the cheap digital knockoff.

Miso, you are a paragon of capitalist thinking.

Hmmph, i said FREE! The Cheap Digital Plastic Replica© is a OLD-SKOOL FREEBIE AND! ... it will continue to give out free replicas of itself!
