Gazira Babeli
Code Performer
all ACTS
"... All Gazira Babeli's works start off as performances, "acts". And all of them have the potential to be something else as well.
This even applies to Gaz of the Desert, in so far as it is a "scripted narrative". Gazira herself put it very well in an interview: "Codes are just instructions, imperative verbs... The result could be spectacular and/or create social troubles. I found it easier to call these instructions 'performances' or 'actions'. It makes sense in SL frame-space 'cause the results look more like a sensible real space than a computer output." Almost all of her works, before being exhibited and classified as works, "took place" in non-dedicated settings, where they could really hit hard."
