Walking

Running
and
Getting
Nowhere

Walking, not Running, and Getting Nowhere is a series of mixed reality performance explorations transposing 'real' walks by the artist and 'virtual' walks in Second Life.

In Walking, not Running, and Getting Nowhere (Exploration #1) Garrett's avatar is set to animate a walk on the spot in Second Life on top of a screen broadcasting a live video feed of a walk from ‘real’ life. Alongside is a heads-up display (HUD) showing Garett's ‘real’ life position as the walk occurs.

In Walking, not Running, and Getting Nowhere (Exploration #2), Garrett's avatar is set to animate a walk on the spot in Second Life on top of a screen broadcasting a live video feed of a walk on the Moon in Google Earth around the perimeter of the Apollo 11 landing site.
