Virtual Fluxus: Piano Drop w/Bibbe Hansen

On the 7th, I had the pleasure of being part of the Odyssey Performance Art Festival in Second Life, where Bibbe Hansen and I performed a version of my “Honsen-Ono Piano Drop”,based on the  “Yoko Ono Piano Drop” by Al Hansen.  In the original, Al hansen dropped a grand piano from a tall building  for his compatriot, Yoko Ono. In this piece, my avatar, Man Michinaga, mimes playing a grand piano, and Al’s daughter, Bibbe, (played by avatar Bibbe OH) sits in a “torch singer” place on my piano, while anincreasing hail of pianos rain upon our heads.  This shows the beautiful absurdity of virtual worlds, and translates many of the principles of the FLUXUS performance into virtual worlds.
