DC Spensley is also the creator and artistic director of the world’s first virtual, aerial dance company – the ZEROG SkyDancers. Linden Lab original, John “Pathfinder” Lester (AKA Pathfinder Linden), compared this genre-expanding, three-dimensional dance to Cirque Du Soleil changing the circus forever. In all his work, DC Spensley, and DanCoyote, have been driven to create art installations and theater productions that are intentionally native to the virtual world, a thesis which DC calls Hyperformalism.Further up the towerWagner James Au (AKA Hamlet Linden) in his seminal book, “The Making of Second Life”, has recognized DC Spensley for the advancement of virtual art. DC ’s work has been referenced in mainstream press, including The New York Times, Reuters, Step by Step Design, and Fibreculture Journal, as well in Europe, where DC has a strong following and is referenced in a number of European academic books and art journals. Additional recognition includes New Media venues such as Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria), ZERO1 Biennial (San Jose, CA), Digital Electronic Arts Festival – DEAF (Rotterdam, Netherlands), and the Frye Museum (Seattle, WA). DC won a UNESCO award for virtual architecture in 2007. He has also written extensively about new media art theory focused on virtual worlds in Arts 21 and other publications.  Higher About DanCoyote Antonelli:The avatar DanCoyote Antonelli, as the proxy for David “DC” Spensley in the virtual world of Second Life, was derived from Cervantes’ Don Quixote, in honor of a coyote that Joseph Beuys lived with for a time at the René Block Gallery in New York during his 1974 action, “I like America and America Likes Me”. Apparently nobody realized how close Beuys and the coyote had become until DanCoyote was born. Well, there are 40 levelsFor more information please contact:DanCoyote Antonelli in Second Life I won’t go to all levelsGo there for more levels*********************************************************LicenseOriginal text in this blog is CC By: unless specified public domainUse as you please with attribution: link to the original.All images without attribution in this blog are CC0: public domain.*********************************Drop by my web office Weekdays: 12:-12:30 Central time  (US)Cybalounge, entry place/We can also visit 3DWebWorldz, a professionally-built world. Mondays we focus on learning/library/museums.Tuesdays we focus on writing and I will also be in 3DWebWorldz.Wednesdays we focus on promoting your project, using this blog.Fridays we may focus on grants, contracts, business, and web-worlds.Don’t register — enter as guest.  If you see no one, click the pointed push-pin (bottom line) to find me.Thinkerer Melville in Second Life, Selby Evans in KitelyWeb-worlds, 3D virtual worlds running in a browser.
