A LIVING DOOR
The Theme will be Auratic Bodies teleporting [through A LIVING DOOR under high voltage] into a Sphere of Art. The Sphere will have a diameter of 42 meters and is set on a baseplate of 64×64 meters. A call will be sent to worldartificers in Opensim, Second Life, Sansar, High Fidelity, Sine Space and Unity to create a holder structure on which the Sphere will rest and will wait to be filled. This leads to the second call, the creation of The Sphere. Inside the Spheres will be what we call in 1Biennale 2018 The Artist Cube, now it is a Sphere. Some inspiration might emanate out of the following lines, taken from the short story The Dilemma, published in rezmagazine, June 2018, words leading back to the beginning of this book.
“To get valid data out of Big Data we need to create two types of Avatars: The first ones knowing they are Avatars and the ones who don’t know they are.” ~ The Boss
This job I got and I created them. The ones not knowing they are Avatars I made by using the human aura. I created a replica by scanning it. The Auratar. The other ones you know, you steer them, you live in them. They act as you, you can log them in. You say the traditional phrase, known as the WESTWORLD-phrase: “Bring yourself back online, Dolores.” But if you have watched the series, the original cut from 2018 at HBO you know, “Bring yourself back online, Bernard,” leads to a different question. For Dr. Robert Ford, played by Anthony Hopkins, it leads to: “To Be or Not to Be.”
PASSING A LIVING DOOR under high voltage is reflecting on the performance ‘Imponderabilia’ by Marina Abramovic & Ulay in Bologna, Italy , reperformed at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art  and the announcement by Tate London that Marina Abramovic will electroshock herself with 1 Million Volts in 2020.
Avatars meeting an Auratar
Come lie next to me. Know why, you and me are one. No lies, you and me are one.
And machine saw everything it had made and said “behold”.
And on the seventh day, Machine made Art.
