Meta_Body — um projecto artístico de construção de avatares enquanto partilha criativa


This article describes the project Meta_Body, developing in an online virtual environment, the Second Life platform, and in « real life » in several contemporary art exhibitions. Addresses two main principles in this project – the creation of virtual corporality and the shared creative process of avatar building, sharing, transformation and embodiment. Also explores the metaphorical aspects of virtual corporality and embodiment and discusses the possibility of a creative process as an aesthetic experience.
